We're thrilled to finally share some images from our evening at The Big Fake Wedding New England. Let me answer your first question- what the heck is The Big Fake Wedding? The BFW is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional vow renewal ceremony, light bites, and a dance-party reception. Simply said, it's a fake wedding to connect brides and grooms to the best local vendors.
The Big Fake Wedding New England's special couple this year were high school sweethearts, Maureen and Heavenstone. We still can't get over how beautiful they are and how much love surrounds them. It was such an honor to work with them as they renewed their vows surrounded by their friends, family, children and so many married couples-to-be.
Now back to the event. The KMED team served as the exclusive wedding coordinator and helped to make the evening come together and look as beautiful as possible from beginning to end. The event vendors worked their magic to transform Colonial Hall at Rockafellas in Salem, MA into a deeply romantic celebration with deep plum and gold accents (perfect for fall!) There were so many amazing details and vendors that contributed their beautiful work and expertise. From the delicate watercolor invitations, cascading florals, and moody centerpieces, our guests had themselves a pretty beautiful date night. We've shared some of the gorgeous shots below and we're also featured on the Ruffled Blog today where you can see even more.
Many kudos to all of the amazing vendors involved:
