The Biggest Wedding Trend of 2016

While 2016 still loves romantic lighting and rustic charm, the biggest trend taking over this year is as simple as it gets: minimalistic! 

This trend no longer requires lavish flower arrangements, glamorous venues, and luxurious foods. Couples are leaning more towards wispy greenery, industrial settings, and comfort foods. This trend may sound a little too relaxed for some brides but this style is so simple that you can go any direction with it. It also saves couples a ton of money and who doesn't love that? Below we'll list categories and the recent minimalistic approach couples are taking on them.

Sea of Love Styled Shoot

Here in San Francisco, we've been inspired by the fog that rolls in every evening, creating an air of soft romance. We can't help but be swept away by the quiet wildness of love and the sea. Our Sea of Love shoot below took inspiration from natural ocean elements: pearls and shimmering fish scale jewelry, seaweed invitations, sea glass calligraphy, and flowers that look like they could have washed ashore from an enchanted island.

We hope you love this cool tone, charming beach shoot as much as we do! Please like, comment, or share.
