Menu

A few weeks ago I had the incredible opportunity to join over 25 amazing California wedding vendors to put on the event of a lifetime at the Moniker Warehouse in San Diego that was hosted by The Big Fake Wedding and sponsored by Brides Magazine and OPI.

The Big Fake Wedding℠ is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional ceremony, a tasty dinner and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides-and-grooms-to-be who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action.
