What could possibly make an already gorgeous garden even more stunning? How about peacocks strolling the grounds? We squealed with delight when we saw them in this wedding sent to us by the ever-talented Gabe Aceves. This college sweetheart couple — a pair of stellar photographers themselves — had the perfect vintage-inspired wedding, surrounded by their closest friends and family (and the occasional peacock, of course!).

From the bride: We had our wedding at Mayfield because it’s a very sentimental spot for us as we used to go hike around there together in college. We mainly just wanted a really easy, laid back wedding since we go to so many weddings ourselves! It was important for us to have a female, non-religious officiant so Joanna was perfect.
