It’s not every day I get a submission of a styled shoot that took place in a zoo, but when this little beauty landed in my inbox I knew I had to share it with you. It borrows teal and purple inspiration from these majestic birds and gives it a beautiful, weddingly twist.
Photographer Christy Whitehead explains the inspiration for the shoot:
“This was shot at the Jacksonville Zoo with a peacock theme. What makes this even more fun is how many elements are DIY or were gotten from Etsy. This concept was created by myself, Tanya Hendricks and Lauren Atwaters. Tanya is a wedding planner and she created the sparkly chargers. Lauren does decals through her company, Ten23Designs and created the custom names on everything.”
“The glasses, cake cutter, garter, guest book, jewelry (even wedding rings!) and some of the other items were all from Etsy crafters. The veils were also handmade by a local artist.”
“I wanted this to be very formal and hated the idea of regular ties, so I made the guys ascots/cravats. It was my first time, but it really wasn’t too hard, kind of like sewing two ties together. Tying them was the hard part! The guys’ hats we picked up at Target and then added a ribbon to them and a peacock feather.”
