Y’all know how much I love Wedding Wednesdays. And I think it’s pretty evident that my love for weddings is endless. There are a few things that I really enjoy seeing in the world of weddings these days. Find out below…

Black and White Photography

There is something about a black and white photo that I absolutely love. It’s a bit more revealing to me. Perhaps my brain doesn’t have to process all the colors like it does in a full color photo, so it can just focus on the details. Who knows?? Your whole wedding doesn’t have to be shot in black and white ( it’s usually shot in color and then edited), but a few key photos make for great framed images in your home or for a gift.

Use of Lights & Candles

With a little bit of light, something very simple can be turned into elegant or whimsical. Whether it’s candles or the use of actual lights, incorporating a bit here or there will certainly add a nice flair. As well, candles and light usually signify and help to produce a warm environment. So if you are looking to add a touch of warmth to your day, consider using lights or candles.

I love the use of chalkboard at any wedding. I can definitely say that chalkboard is my wedding thing right now. It can be used in many ways, such as, for a reception menu display, a photo backdrop, a prop in your photo booth, etc. If you like the idea of incorporating a chalkboard into your wedding but your penmanship isn’t great, find a chalkboard artist or a local college art student. Let them know your vision and theme and they should be able to produce something to your liking.
