I’ve got just the wedding to help you leap right over the middle of the week hump, and keep you skipping all the way to the weekend. This peacock themed meets vintage glam wedding sent to us by Rachel Pearlman has so many gorgeous details it’s impossible to count. Who would have thought peacock feathers, red umbrellas, a rustic barn ceremony, a superb white fur stole and a pair of sparkling Toms flats could all fit inside one super chic, winter affair! Then, just to make us all green with envy, the bride managed to have it all planned in 3 weeks!! (insert round of applause here!) Well, if I had any doubts how she did it, they were quickly quashed when I heard one word – Etsy! This gorgeous Delaware wedding proves for a fact you can style a wedding theme quick as a flash with the help of this awesome artisan emporium. So, settle back and get comfy, meander through all the pretty and get inspired by all the fabulous Etsy-luscious ideas.Don’t you just love the bride Jess’ vintage glam look. Her lush white faux stole is from Alex Bridal, the gorgeous peacock feather fascinator by Madelines’ Little Boutique and her chic birdcage veil is from Brenda’s Bridal Veils (all shops on Etsy).The pretty peacock theme was also featured in the flower girl’s peacock feather headbands by Pretty n Pearl and on the vintage inspired boutonniere by Rationale (also from Etsy).
Photographer Rachel shares: Jess and George refused to let rain ruin their day. Adorned with red umbrellas, the couple shared a romantic reveal on old train tracks. As a pianist played in the candle-lit barn that was the ceremony space, Jess and George said ‘I Do’ beside a roaring fire. Guests stood by the couple by during their vows. At the cocktail reception the couple provided mardi-gras themed masks to guests for fun photo ops. While she only had three months to plan, Jess refused to neglect the details that would set the mood for the evening. A lover of all things Peacock, she decided that feathers were her only wish for floral design. Her and George agreed that the room would be best with as much candlelight as possible so floating candles and orchids were a perfect choice. The decor of the Inn was so unique already that they let it speak for itself. Jess used Etsy to select one of a kind pieces for herself and her bridal party: A vintage style birdcage veil, hand crafted flower girl headbands for Jess’ nieces, a peacock hand corsage. Jess adored how her Etsy details made everything about the day so personal and special. Each piece arrived wrapped and with hand written notes of thanks and well wishes. After the ceremony, Jess sported a pair of glittery Toms that kept her feet warm all night. It was especially important to the couple that everything come together quickly and effortlessly. During their engagement, they happily discovered that they were expecting their first baby. As Jess said to me after the wedding: “This whole wedding just seemed to fall into my lap. It was so easy and stress free. Like finding you…Andrew (of the Inn at Montchanin Resort) said check out our facebook page because this girl Rachel Pearlman just did a wedding. She is newish at this but very much enthusiastic. I looked at your site and the decision was done. I cant imagine planning a wedding for a year or more. It really was all done in like 2-3 weeks.”
Thank you Rachel for sending us this gorgeous wedding. We love every little bitty detail!
