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.
The day started out like any normal wedding day with the bride and her girls arriving to have their hair and make-up done by the fantastic Sierra Warncock Styling.
