Today’s real wedding, brought to us by Derek Chad Photography, is full of elegant details and rich jewel tones! Here’s the lovely bride to tell us more:
The reason the peacock is kind of special goes back to prior to when we were engaged. We were in Philadelphia and happened to be walking around the jewelry district (about 5 months after we were dating). Paddy saw this tacky, ornate metal peacock in one of the displays with all the engagement rings.
See more after the cut!
He said “why do people have to get a engagement ring when they get engaged, why can’t it be an engagement peacock!” That became our running joke about how I would always carry this peacock around to show we were engaged. We made 2 subsequent trips to Philly to see if the peacock was still in the display.
On the second, it was no longer there and I was disappointed. Little did I know, Paddy had already bought the peacock and 6 months later on the night we became engaged it was on my bed after we got back.
Congratulations to the happy couple and thank you Derek for sharing! For more information about Derek Chad Photography, please visit his website.
