Inspire Smart Success: 2012 Wedding Trends Feature!

It’s difficult keeping up with all the latest in wedding styles, especially when they’re continuously changing. But that’s the beauty of trends- they’re constantly transforming, allowing each bride to create her truly unique and special day.

This year’s wedding trends are a bit more personalized with a vintage flare, from black-and-white photographs and old-school shots to post-wedding photo shoots and video slideshows.

I was thrilled to collaborate with Inspire Smart Success contributing writer Heather Walrath on this year’s wedding trends and even more excited to catch her recent feature in print!

I was lucky enough to be able to have the expertise of both of PW Photography and McBride Events, who could share what is catching their eyes these days in the world of wedding trends. I was also thrilled that Oregon-based Black Label Films could lend further insight about trends on the West Coast.

Thanks again to Heather as well as Inspire Smart Success for the opportunity!
