Small details can add big personality to a wedding. Here local wedding photographers share some their favorites they are seeing trending.


  1. Food Trucks

When couples bring in food they love or that are special to them in some way, it tends to be a hit! That could mean a food truck passing out courses, a cousin’s taco truck, or a cart from Big Spoon or Steel City Pops.

  1. Whimsical Bouquets

Florals always pull the brides personality and every aspect of the wedding day together. I love that brides are branching out into more whimsical, romantic bouquets. They make a statement, without being overbearing.

  1. Fur Friends

Bringing in your beloved pet in a floral crown makes for some of the most personalized pictures. We adore these!

  1. Black Bridesmaid Dresses

A lot of people used to find wearing black to weddings a little taboo and somber, so I love that this wedding party all wore black and makes the bride stand out more.

Elegant statement florals at the altar or arch provide a beautiful backdrop for ceremony and highlights the couple as they say their vows.

  1. Statement Cakes

Few reception focal points speak louder than the wedding cake. We love the recent trend focusing on the cake height, floral decor and more.

  1. Greenery in Florals

While color against a white wedding dress is beautiful, many couples are choosing a more understated look. Lots of greenery, including eucalyptus, instead of the more colorful blooms seems to be a popular trend in both bouquets and centerpieces.

  1. Statement Shoes

A standout pair of shoes for the bride helps tell the wedding’s color story or give a pop of sparkle or color to the wedding day look.
