Peacock Styled Wedding

We got the chance to do two gorgeous photo shoots at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens this year. Besides the Wildly in Love/Animal Print “wedding” we also did a peacock inspired shoot/mock wedding, which we featured on our blog a couple of months ago.

Several popular wedding websites have since picked up the images and run with them.

We love the text for Time to Drink Champagne‘s intro to the shoot!

“You may be forgiven for thinking that this simply won’t work. I thought much the same when I saw the title for this submission from Christy Whitehead Photography but once you set eyes on the pictures you will realise very quickly that it does work and in fact, it’s pretty darn awesome.


I think the colour scheme and the feathers in the bouquet are inspired. However, it doesn’t stop there; there are details galore in this shoot and the hardest part has been deciding which pictures to show you.”

Be U Weddings said:

“Peacock feathers are making an appearance on everything from wedding fashion to dècor these days. So how can you tastefully incorporate this playful, yet elegant look into your special day? Take cues from this brilliantly bold wedding shoot at the Jacksonville Zoo, captured by the talented Christy Whitehead Photography. Turquoise and fuchsia tones look stunning with crisp white accents. Many of the DIY accessories, such as the glasses and jewelry, were handcrafted by Etsy artisans.
