Showing posts with the label peacock feathers
Our bridal bouquet ~ known through out the online wedding world as the Funky Peacock Feather Bouquet, was chosen to be used on the Wedding Brochure for the Philadelphia Zoo. This bouquet has been in countless magazines and industry blogs and we were honored they wanted to use it as their showpiece on the cover.  The Philadelphia Zoo reached out to us for permission after seeing the photo on Flickr and were happy to allow them to use it. Created about 6 years ago for a bridal couple hosting their wedding at the Lambertville Inn, this photo was taken by Jeff Tisman Photography.

Funky Peacock Feather Bouquet

Yes, the funky peacock feather bouquet was ours! I write that line a bit tongue in cheek because one of our bouquets has become famous and known as the "Funky Peacock Feather" bouquet. I posted a photo almost 3 years ago onto my Flickr account and did not watermark or protect it in any way. Almost 10,000 views later that bouquet seemed to have caused the most buzz. I've seen it used so many times (mostly without credit to our shop - no worries, I'm not angry about that) in blogs and online. I thought it would be fun to show some of the other photos from that wedding. I often get asked if we really did that bouquet. Yes and here's the proof! The bride was Stephanie and the photographer was Jeff Tisman and the bride came to me very close to her October wedding date. Why? Because she was afraid that the florist would talk her out of using peacock feathers in her wedding. That was before she knew me and found out how much I love doing, not only what the bride wants

Have You Considered Feathers?

Ah, peacock feathers, definately not for the faint of heart but when used correctly - Wow! This bouquet created for our bride Stephanie really speaks to people when they see it. They may not be brave enough to choose it for themselves but everyone agrees it's beautiful and memorable. Even the groom wore a small peacock feather. Talk about being trend setters! Traditional floral elements like the roses and stephanotis above are taken to the next level with these soft white ostrich feathers. Bride Jennifer loved the soft texture these added to the edge of her bouquet and they also complimented her soft tulle skirting.  The simple act of adding some rhinestones really take this bouquet from ordinary to extraordinary.
