Eclectic Bird Lovers Wedding Inspiration

Calling all birders! Grab your binoculars because bright emerald green plateware, pops of burgundy red flowers, and mustard yellow vintage furniture flocked to the Virginia Zoo in Norfolk for an imaginative bird-loving affair. Inspired by flight and feathers, this eclectic wedding inspiration shoot is definitely not for the birds (figuratively speaking, of course)! Photographed by Kierstyn Peterson Photography and coordinated by Misty Saves the Day, it was feathers for days! Guinea fowl and pheasant quills decorated a gilded cake designed by Whipped Up By Mimi while white ostrich plumage fluffed out the texture-rich bridal bouquet. The tableware isn't forgotten because you'll spot illustrated peacocks strutting their stuff on appetizer plates, adorable little nests as table centerpieces, and carved wooden feathers serving as wedding place cards.

In a playfully elegant tea-length wedding dress, the bride model also wore a feathered hair fascinator in lieu of a veil... which is literally the perfect accessory for any bird-loving gal! As couples are about to fly off into a new adventure called marriage, be inspired by color, nature, and a personal love of unique details from this fun shoot.
