Retro Fall Vibes Photo Shoot Florals

Two photographers/besties reached out to me about providing flowers for a retro engagement/elopement photo shoot. IT.WAS.SUCH.A.VIBE.

Fall Engagement Photo Shoot

First, featuring photography by the lovely Misty of Boheme Bridal and Boudoir, located in Winchester, VA.

Between the classic car provided by Famous Vintage Camper Co, the fall foliage, and our gorgeous models, everything was perfection.

Vintage Car Engagement Photo Flowers

It was so much fun to craft flowers for the fender of the car and make this bouquet. Next, we have photos of the engagement photo shoot by Carly of Carly Rose Photography, located in Winchester, VA.

Carly and Misty had such an amazing vision for this shoot. What’s even better, is that this styled shoot turned into lots of future collaborations with each of them in their niches of high end, editorial style weddings and bridal boudoir portraits. I’m so grateful to work with such talented photographers who understand and trust my artistic vision. And, Carly took some of my favorite photos of me and Alex.

Vintage Elopement Flowers in the Fall in Winchester, VA

Misty, Boheme Bridal and Boudoir, took these moody photos. I can’t tear my eyes off them, tbh. As a florist, black and white photography isn’t always my favorite, but I just love these too much not to share. T & J were such troopers. They were all in, and they SLAYED.

It wasn’t all black and white though. Take a look at these!

Classic Car Bedecked with Flowers

This is the only time I’ve been asked to add flowers to a car and it was so much. How could it not be? What a gorgeous car!! Carly, Carly Rose Photography, captured the following shots. Goodness gracious, it’s so dang hard to pick just a few to show you!

Retro Inspired Fall Wedding Bouquet

The flowers for this fall inspired vintage elopement were carefully chosen to reflect the foliage of the mountains and the theme. Large creamy white roses, touches of rust-colored mums, white mums, and tinted terracotta wax flower all complemented by touches of eucalyptus. This offered a textured and slightly wild bouquet, perfectly fitting in with the retro vibes. Tied with two colors of ribbon to blow in the wind, this simple, yet impactful bouquet remains a favorite.

The Valley Bride, located in Winchester, VA, provided the bridal gown for the shoot. Dresses from The Valley Bride always, always, always knock my socks off.

"Conveying what I had envisionED was such an easy process and I greatly appreciated how smoothly we were able to communicate"

"Last year I hired Ket to do some boho florals for my 10 year vow renewal. I was OVER THE MOON with what she delivered. Conveying what I had envisioned was such an easy process and I greatly appreciated how smoothly we were able to communicate and plan out the details. If you want a florist with incredible talent, a true heart for what she does and a clear and effective approach to helping you have stunning florals Ket is your girl

"She clearly has a love and talent for her work, and it shines in what she does! 

I cannot say enough good things about my experience working with Keturah on the flowers for our wedding. She created my bridal bouquet, boutonnières for my husband and my father, and corsages for the mothers of the bride and groom along with an installation that served as the backdrop for our ceremony and family photos. During our initial consultation she asked lots of questions to make sure she knew our likes, dislikes, and the look and feel of our wedding. Her designs were gorgeous and original, incorporating blooms that were local and in-season. She went the extra mile in building her own frame for the installation when the one she normally used was unavailable. The arrangements she made for the installation were lovely and unique in their use of red amaranth to create a cascading effect. Guests are still complementing us on how lovely the flowers were even 4 months after our wedding!
I would not hesitate to recommend Keturah to a bride (anyone) looking for floral designs using in-season blooms and creative flair.

"I cried when I saw the flowers the day of as they were exactly what I envisioned.

I just wanted to share my sincere gratitude for the INCREDIBLE work Keturah with One Last Avocado did for my wedding. I cried when I saw the flowers the day of as they were exactly what I envisioned. I didn't think it was possible given my budget and timeline. Highly recommend her for any of your events.
