The 2nd Birmingham NotWedding

Earlier this year, we had the pleasure of welcoming Birmingham’s first NotWedding to Bridge Street Gallery and Loft for an evening of love, dinner and dancing for a night dedicated to fab wedding design for happy couples. This event that takes place in cities around the country connects brides to local vendors in the form of a fake wedding and reception. Brides with their family and friends attend a “wedding” of a real Birmingham couple. They renew their vows, everyone cheers and then the party really gets started. Attendees can meet with the vendors that create the magic, and head to the reception. Check out some of the highlights from the first Birmingham NotWedding!

Now we are pleased to announce the 2nd NotCouple to renew their vows next Thursday, Sept. 25, at Avon Theater! Nedra and Jeremy are 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. Stephanie Benzaia of Benzaia Photography recently took the couple out for “engagement session” shoot in Mountain Brook’s English Village. See more of this engagement shoot on the NotWedding Blog!
