The Big Fake Wedding – Birmingham

On September 25, 2014, The Big Fake Wedding (formerly known as The NotWedding) brought together the talents of several local wedding professionals to create a bridal event that brings the full wedding experience to attendees.

About The Big Fake Wedding:

“Complete with dinner and drinks, an emotional vow-renewal ceremony and a dance-party reception, The Big Fake Wedding has become a killer alternative to a bridal show. The hand-selected vendors perform their services as they would at a real wedding, and the ‘wedding guests’ get to hear the music, taste the cakes, and smell the flowers… while enjoying a night of great food, dancing and surprises, leaving brides-and-grooms-to-be saying ‘I want my wedding to be just like that!'”

Each event features a real married couple that renews their vows during the ceremony, supporting The Big Fake Wedding’s value of strong marriages. This event’s couple was Nedra and Jeremy, an adorable couple that are also behind the wonderful organization She Dances, which provides holistic restoration for young girls that have been sexually trafficked in Honduras.

Take a peek inside the big event, which was styled around the concept of marble swirls for a truly unique design combining the interpretations of all vendors involved. Photos courtesy of: Benzaia PhotographyMagen Davis Photography, and A Still Breath Photography.
