Pinterest, other trends influence weddings



Bushey said she noticed that pink is the popular color for weddings recently, but she is sticking with her natural, outdoor look. To top it off, she is also doing a DIY project and making her centerpieces.

She said she’s been to quite a few bridal shows and was looking specifically for a hair stylist and bridesmaids dresses. Because each woman has such a different personality and is built differently, finding one style dress to suit them all is not easy, she said.


Wild Orchid owner Carmen Lucia said a popular floral theme is the classic look: white roses with pearl or diamond accents.

She said that while this classy look works great for the bride, a colorful pomander bouquet is better for the flower girl. The purple pomander on display at her booth was picked up and admired by many who passed by, she said.


Whichever theme or dresses are chosen, every wedding needs its moments captured, and that’s what the photographers are there for.

Photographer Jennifer McCluskey of McCluskey Photography has been doing weddings for five years and said she always likes to cater to the bride’s and groom’s personalities as much as possible.

Through These Eyes, Frank Koester’s photography business, works the same way.

Though he likes to incorporate the wedding couple’s characteristics in the photographs, he also laces in what he calls “fashion journalism.”

Koester, having been in the journalism world before wedding photography, said he likes to mix that knowledge with his new career, giving it a different look.

Photo booths are a new twist on photography at weddings and have been growing in popularity the last few years, said Jim Carroll, owner of Overtime Photography.

“It’s not on a necessary list like the DJ, but it’s close,” Carroll said about the photo booths.
