I’m beyond thrilled to finally be able to share this amazing post with you today! Back in October I had the pleasure of being a part of the 3rd NotWedding in San Diego (soon to be The Big Fake Wedding), which happened to be my 3rd NotWedding as well; I did both the Los Angeles and Cape Cod events. It was magical to say the least. From all the insanely talented vendors, and the stunning location at the San Diego Museum of Art, to our Eastern Ikat theme – everyone just killed it. This post is long and full of eye candy so make sure you are ready to get inspired!

For those of you who are unfamiliar with The NotWedding; it’s essentially an alternative bridal show in the form of a big fake wedding. Killer vendors get together and do their absolute best and married couple renews their vows in front of around 200 guests who are all brides planning their weddings. Everyone gets to experience the vendors work in person throughout an entire, condensed wedding – ceremony, dinner, drinks and dancing! It’s an absolute blast. You can find a 2015 event near you, here.
