We are coming to the end of the month so we're wrapping up our pretty peacock party theme. Earlier this month we showed you Keri and Tanner's elegant and classic peacock wedding. Today we have the second gorgeous event to share, Laryssa and Sharyn's beautiful outdoor country wedding shot by De Nueva Photography.
The setting was calendar house, an historic farmhouse in NY state surrounded by acres of orchards and farmland. Laryssa and Sharyn chose a peacock theme for their day, with plenty of beautiful blue and turquoise shades.
White table clothes were given a rustic touch with the addition of hessian fabric squares in the centre and pretty birch vases filled with wildflowers. A scattering of sparkly blue and green sequins added that hint of peacock glamour.
Laryssa's Ukrainian heritage was celebrated with the custom of a candle lighting and shared bread and wine before the reception. The girls wore the most beautiful floral and ribbon head pieces for this part and shared a bread called Korovai, which is traditionally severed instead of a wedding cake. It looked fabulous decorated with ribbons, but sweet tooth's didn't miss out with a delicious cake being served later too.
Laryssa and Sharyn asked all their guests sign their ketubah by adding a fingerprint to the custom peacock designed by 'i do' it yourself. A lovely way to involve guests in what was a truly beautiful wedding day.
