From Elaine Palladino Photography... For this timeless wedding in South Florida, the bride wanted to have a day that "no on would forget." Inspired by peacock feathers, there were many classic details, including breathtaking flowers with a touch of whimsy thanks to the feather details and pops of color.

From the Bride... I had in mind having a wedding no one would forget - romantic, yet party atmosphere, traditional, yet modern.  The most memorable moment of your day was when we said our vows. It was a beautiful afternoon.  My favorite detail was the decoration of the reception and the Peacock feather details.  Our DIY details were the menus, programs, and place cards, as well as the flower girl's headbands.  A significant detail we incorporated into the wedding was the couples first glance.  It was beautiful private moment before the whirlwind of the rest of the day.

My advice for future bride/grooms would be to remember the day is about you and your honey.
