This is a wedding slideshow from a peacock themed wedding in Flat Rock, Michigan. Please give it a few moments to load! Thanks!
Perhaps one of the most uniquely themed weddings I’ve ever been to. Annie works at the zoo and collected hundreds and hundreds of peacock feathers over the course of a year (they shed their entire tails yearly… did you know that?). Not only was she artistic and detailed oriented, so was the groom, DJ. He hand drew the maps to the wedding that were cool and perfect. She made all the boutonnieres, hair pieces, and bouquets using flowers, twigs and peacock feathers. DJ made the center pieces in the hall using branches, lights and gel water balls… very cool, very pretty and very unique. Annie also made several hundreds of origami purple orchids that were in the flowers and center pieces. Really well done and such a cool personal touch.
Annie’s Dad is a photographer, a very nice, laid back photographer, so while he was shooting whatever he wanted throughout the night, it was funny because he was the one person who always knew where I was! The photo booth went over like gang busters and the wedding party handed out glow sticks to everybody which made for a cool effect on the dance floor and throughout the reception hall. Most of the guests kept their glow stick decorations pretty g-rated, but a few got, well, shall we say… creative? DJ & Annie were also my first couple who wanted to take advantage of a really big rock at the Flat Rock Community Center (think lodge, not YMCA) and Annie actually climbed the thing! Fun couple, easy to work with and I’m pretty sure they were rocking well into the wee hours of the night!!! I have lots more photos at my other blog, www.themichiganweddingphotographer.blogspot.com
