The 2016 Big Fake Wedding Chicago

One of our absolute favorite wedding events is the Big Fake Wedding. On May 4, some of Chicago’s best and brightest vendors gather to put on, well, a big, fake wedding! Couples-to-be get to be wedding guests for a day, and gain the opportunity to see some amazing vendors in action.

This bridal show alternative included an emotional vow renewal ceremony, in which Chicagoans Sarah and Brent were able to express their love for one another again. Light bits and a dance-party reception made for a fun and fabulous evening.We are so thrilled to have been a sponsor for this event, and we can’t wait until the next Big Fake Wedding!

Three photographers captured the event in three different ways, each evoking it’s own emotional experience. We invite you to scroll through images from each of the photographers to get a full view of the big day.
