We could not resist celebrating the most spectacular use of peacock feathers we've ever seen for the wedding of Shane and Owain in Hampton Bays! The glorious explosion of color and style was captured by photographer-extraordinaire, Milla Cochran of The Rose Weddings and clearly it was a day to remember. With a peacock as their mascot, a palette of vibrant jewel tones set the stage and peacock feathers were incorporated into not only the bridesmaid's gorgeous bouquets but also the cake (to amazing effect)! We love that each bridesmaid rocked her own style with wild feather fascinators. Check out more shots of the happy day on Milla's website, www.theroseweddings.com.
We've run out of degrees of stunning to describe our bride of the month, Liza. For her wedding to Mark, 30 of her nearest and dearest from the USA, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium and the United Kingdom travelled to the beautiful Mount Kenya Safari Club where the guests relaxed and enjoyed 4 days of festivities before the entire group went on safari together in the Massai Mara. To complement the colors and feel of the African setting, we designed a special headpiece for Liza that affectionately became known as "The Rooster", a combination of earth tone rooster, pheasant, turkey and peacock feathers with a vintage bone carving as an accent. Similar feathers were included in Liza's bouquet for a fun and beautiful touch. Terilyn Lemaire Photography captured the day exquisitely, which you can follow in her blog post http://terilynlemaire.com/foxy-bondy/

You can imagine the excitement of being a guest on our first talk show! Here's a behind the scenes shot of the Green Room, where I waited nervously to appear on a segment of Every Way Woman, a talk show which provides a forum focused on uplifting, celebrating and supporting the people who are making a difference in our communities. I had the honor of being asked to speak about not only Holiday fashions from The Feathered Head but also what it's like to follow your passion. Every Way Woman is the creation of Madison Gray and Yolando Mitchell Brown, and the show provides a platform for people to discuss the issues that matter in their lives, exploring the intensely political and the intimately personal, especially when they intersect. On EWW they discuss topics within context and how they affect real people in real time. We need more local talk shows like this one, which takes a look at the human side of women’s issues, politics and pop culture, and allows women to promote their own ideas and entrepreneurial dreams. Stay tuned for details of the airing!
