The Big Fake Wedding

If you told me 2 years ago, when I was balls deep in my own wedding planning, that I'd be doing some wedding gigs for other people--I'd tell you that you were cray.

But here we are, and I'm now a "Featured on Ruffled" kind of gal. If you're into weddings, you know why I'd be geeking out about it--even if you're not, just humor me here and insert a "woahhhh" to make me happy.

A few weeks ago, I participated in The Big Fake Wedding Los Angeles, a bridal show with a twist. Just like the name suggests, the premise of it is that instead of vendors just having booths and standing around in a convention room, we all throw a wedding together, and the show guests are the wedding guests. Sound fun, right? And kind of funky?

That's what I thought when the show organizer reached out to me to be one of the vendors, and that's why I thought hey, I'm totally going to do this. I've done wedding invitations and décor design, but was unsure whether it was something I wanted to do under the F&D name. The premise totally got me though, so I said yes, and I am so glad that I did.

It was so much fun, I got to meet amazing people who are killing it running their own business, which was super inspiring.

Oh and bonus, of course, featured on Ruffled.

Here are some of my favorite photos. I gotta say, professional photographers are just fucking amazing at making my stuff look exponentially cooler than life.
