Moroccan accents, peacock feathers and jewel tones


For my July 2010 wedding, I wanted to do something with peacock feathers.  While peacocks are native to South Asia, they are known to inhabit other areas and so I settled on the mystique of Morocco as a backdrop to feature beautiful peacock feathers and their gorgeous jewel tones.
Hindu mythology associates peacocks with the god Lakshmi. The feathers thus represent his qualities: kindness, patience and good fortune.  Feathers are also a symbol of renewal.  While many cultures view the symbolism of peacocks and peacock feathers differently, I chose to use them simply because of their beauty.
