Wedding: Roaming Peacocks

I've long been fascinated with the beauty and exquisite coloring of the peacock. My mother decorated with peacock feathers beautifully accenting our Victorian sitting room when I was a child growing up in the Puget Sound area of Washington state. It seems no matter where peacock feathers appear they evoke a sense of opulence. This bird is a resident of a countryside wedding and event venue in Oregon called Horning's Hideout. While visiting I saw at least twenty peacocks flocking together and scattered individually throughout the property.

The picture above was caught on an unusually warm August day from the entrance to the road that leads down to Horning's Hideout. The photo below shows the steep gravel road leading to the very rustic grounds. Not your typical wedding venue - guests can go fishing, camping, hiking, peddle boating on the small lake, or hold a music concert in their natural amphitheatre which also doubles as the wedding and special event space.

Horning’s Hideout is located just 35 minutes west of Portland in North Plains, Oregon
