TWIN FALLS • Vampire romance, country chic or a Hawaiian beach.

While Pinterest and other social media have driven the rustic and shabby-chic themes for the area’s top wedding trends, business owners say, couples are finding ways to make their big day truly their own.

“They’re choosing things that reflect their own personalities,” said Tacie Wright, owner and photographer at T Wright Photography.

Bride-to-be Jayleen Ichokowan is originally from Hawaii and wanted to incorporate her origins into her rustic theme. She plans an evening wedding at the Risk Barn in Jerome, with beach and country related décor, much of which is rented.
