The Big Fake Wedding - Denver (featured on Ruffled Blog!)

I decided to try something new this past August 2015 - I signed up and participated in a bridal show unlike any other: The Big Fake Wedding! The Big Fake Wedding is a bridal show and "fake" wedding all in one. The bridal show vendors, (listed & linked at the end of the post), design and create everything a wedding usually includes - ceremony decor, reception decor, dessert/cake, music, videography and more! The Big Fake Wedding recruits a married couple to renew their vows in front of the bridal show guests and then welcome the guests to celebrate with them at a reception set up similar to that of a wedding.

Is was such a great time. Lots of work and quite a long day but the people I met and worked with was well worth all of it! If you have a chance to attend one of these events, do it!
Here are a few of my favorite photos from the day:
