The Big Fake Wedding Experience

From the title I’m sure you’re all wondering what is a Big Fake Wedding experience? Well for starters The Big Fake Wedding, formerly known as The NotWedding was founded in 2008, and has been the most far-reaching bridal show alternative in the nation, attracting over 6,000 attendees and 1,000 vendors annually across 30+ events in 25 cities!! They use real-life couples for an emotional vow-renewal ceremony while completing the evening with a night full of fun {drinks, dinner, and an unforgettable reception}. The hand-selected vendors would be able to showcase their skills/services as they would at a real wedding, and the wedding guests {which are the engaged couples} get to experience it all! It was a pleasure to have been selected as a vendor at The Big Fake Wedding, now without further a due here is our favorite photos by the amazingly talented photographers: Morgan Caddell, John Branch IV, and Blissmore. Complete vendor list will be down below :)
