Peacock inspiration shoot — North Florida wedding and event florist

We are super excited and head over heels in love with this photo shoot we participated in at the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens.

This was a peacock inspired wedding shoot. Peacock is hot right now, and we are in love with the colors and the many different looks you can create with it.

You can go really over the top dramatic with peacock feathers and bursts of color everywhere or you can go very subtle and elegant.

Tanya Hendricks, with Southern Charm Events, and Christy Whitehead, of Christy Whitehead Photography, really pulled together a nice, elegant and modern “wedding.”

Our favorite image from the shoot is above! This is in the Jaguar area at the Zoo. You will be seeing this image pop up in a lot of our advertising, it is such a romantic image!

We were originally supposed to have matching dresses for the “bridesmaids” but Bonny Bridal sent us two peacock toned dresses that were very similar in cut to each other. A lot of brides are choosing to have their bridesmaids wear similar but not the same dresses. And this is really a nice way to add some more color and perhaps allow each bridesmaid to let a bit of her own personality shine through.

And, our floral artist and painter extraordinaire Amy Dwarika painted the bride’s shoes.

Thank you to Visual Power Cinema for this video! And Christy Whitehead Photography for the photos.


Thank you to all our fabulous vendors that participated!
