I am absolutely thrilled to finally be sharing all the stunning images from The Big Fake Wedding, Los Angeles with you today!!! This was the fourth event that I have personally taken part in and my most favorite by far, partly because of my relation to the bride, groom and entire bridal party, and partly because it was down right epic. The groom is my husbands brother Travis (who has been one of my best friends since I was 17), and naturally the bride is his wife Amanda… the bridal party was our cousin Jeff and his wife Caitlin, and our cousin Lauren and her boyfriend Jordan. Aren’t they all gorgeous? Honestly they are all just as wonderful as they are beautiful, and the smiles, laughter and love you will see is very real. I actually cried during the rehearsal and ceremony, as if it were the day I stood up their with them 4 years ago… so silly, but just an example of how moving these events can be. We danced the night away and truly enjoyed every aspect that all the talented vendors had planned for the evening. I have a few favorite elements that I must mention, for one: that amazing dream catcher ceremony backdrop by Frankly.Weddings blew my mind and the two wedding gowns from Bride were jaw-dropping (always helps to have a gorgeous model!). Another was the coffee bar by Dripp and the stunning jewelry by MaeMae Jewelry… I could seriously go on and on, but I’ll let the images talk for me…

If you are unfamiliar, [The Big Fake Wedding][6] is a bridal show alternative in the form of well, a big fake amazing wedding. Complete with an emotional ceremony (a vow renewal of a real married couple), a tasty dinner and a dance party reception. The “wedding guests” are brides-and-grooms-to-be, who are busy planning their weddings and that get to truly experience hand-picked wedding vendors in action. It’s amazing, and LA killed it.
