kootenay wedding; let thy feathers fly!


There is some serious feather-love obsession out there lately.  We love that whether shabby chic or boho or thoroughly modern, the feather has a place in your wedding.  From colorful peacock to snow white, feathers can be incorporated in a variety of ways.  We've fallen for the feather hair adornments, the feather pom poms, the feather-skirted gown, the feather-meet-floral bouquets & table centers.   But we're especially smitten for the feather-love image above.
Pass out white feathers for your guests to throw at the first kiss.  And make sure to tell your photographer that this is a must-have photo for your album!
