Peacock themed weddings and receptions are something Dorothy McDaniel’s Flower Market is seeing a lot of lately. We believe this is party because their iridescent feathers and decadent beauty lends a deep color palette that works year round.
When bride Amber brought us her ideas for her spring wedding at Aldridge Botanical Gardens in Hoover, Alabama we were excited to jump right in! Amber didn’t necessarily want to include peacock feathers but instead use the deep colors of turquoise, purple, and green.
Ashville photographer Olive Yew Photography captured the day and was nice enough to share the photos with us. Thanks Kelli!
Amber’s wildflower bridal bouquet included blooms of Cool Water roses, white peonies, pink astilbe, purple stock, Queen Anne’s lace, scabiosa, and mini green hydrangea. The stems were wrapped in an ivory satin ribbon.
Amber’s flower girl carried a small bouquet of flowers including white hydrangea, cool water roses, pink astilbe, and lavender.
The most important ladies in Amber’s life wore beautiful turquoise bridesmaid dresses and carried bouquets of simple white hydrangea.
