As the title suggests, this week we’re focusing on social media, specifically showcasing our list of wedding professionals you should be following on Instagram – aside from our own account, @bluelindenweddings, of course. While we’re at it, we’d like to officially introduce our very own Instagram extraordinaire, and Blue Linden’s assistant planner, Kaitlin to our readers. By sharing the wedding professionals we love with you, we hope to highlight how Blue Linden’s style can travel across multiple wedding-related industries and mold with potential brides and grooms to make a truly spectacular wedding day go from dream to reality. Plus, we just really want to share the love for the other amazing must-follow wedding professionals out there.
This is Kaitlin Mulligan.
She’s a recent college graduate, majoring in art and design, and decided after her own 2015 wedding engagement that the wedding planning industry is an unexpected place she’s now calling her career-home. Starting as an intern with Blue Linden, she’s recently been dubbed Wanda’s assistant planner and design consultant, and makes sure the world knows the company’s design aesthetic through her management of Blue Linden’s Instagram account. Kaitlin describes her personal style as very modern; while she allows that to somewhat influence the feel of the social media account, she does admit, “I love the challenge of looking at decor and design through the eyes of brides and grooms whose personal style is completely different from mine.” The all-loving and inviting design style of the company is reflected in the ever-changing photos posted by Kaitlin…
and in the accounts that she cites as some of her favorite must-follow wedding professionals. She says of the openness of Blue Linden, “We are a company that focuses on the positive and overall beauty of weddings… we lean towards bright and happy colors while promoting weddings of all types.” Wanda approaches every potential client with Blue Linden acting as a blank slate for them to build their wedding’s individuality upon.
Speaking of those must-follow wedding professionals, here are the top 8 wedding professionals you should be following on Instagram, according to Kaitlin:
“They use vivid colors mixed with unique and artistic photos!”
“They show very warm colors and a variety of happy, wedding related photos that all blend well together.”
“Their profile is very organized and all of the photos are of the same vibe. They show the details of what the company does (close ups of arrangements, etc.) without a lot of fluff.”
“This shop shows a variety of bridal themed photos, their dresses on actual brides (not only the dresses posed on models or mannequins), and celebrates the entire wedding as well as the gowns.”
“Their Insta feed is super bright, with clean vibrant colors. This sort of account really appeals to Colorado couples, especially when they showcase the great scenery shots!”
“Lindy Hickman Photography is very uniform, showing off the photographer’s specific style but staying focused on the couple and the love they share.”
“When I think of Sunshine and her photography, I think of bright and happy. She features a lot of beautiful outdoor weddings; she doesn’t over do it, doesn’t over style.”
“These accounts exemplify the types of weddings that Blue Linden coordinates,” Kaitlin says, “because we embrace the Colorado bride, but we aren’t afraid to step out-of-the-box. Accounts like these on Instagram, and other social media platforms, help us to plan and brainstorm with our couples, acting as a sort of inspiration board.” Additionally, because Kaitlin herself is a bride-to-be, her own wedding planning process lends an even more unique perspective to potential Blue Linden couples, and easily keeps the company on-trend. Another great thing about Instagram and visual-based internet is that it keeps all of these wedding professionals we love connected. “The wedding community is truly a community, in that we all get ideas from each other and build off of the trends of every other industry.”
