In October, I got to be one of two photographers chosen to capture The Big Fake Wedding in Austin, TX. This event is a bridal show in the form of a fake wedding. I know you may be thinking that this sounds a little odd. But imagine this – you are a bride planning a wedding and you attend an event where you not only get to meet potential vendors, but you actually get to see them in action! And even better, the ceremony you get to witness is actually a real life vow renewal!
I loved meeting excited brides and I loved getting to meet incredibly talented wedding vendors from the Austin area. I am hands down going to recommend so many of these lovely vendors to my brides!
The theme of the wedding was Happy Camper. The vendors were given a mood board and from there, they each got creative freedom. I love the way it all came together! Make sure to check out the vendors that made this happen!
Lastly, a big thank you to JuneBug Weddings for featuring some of my photos!
