Who is the couple?
Madison+Callie. These two began dating early in high
school, and it was one of those instant love
kind of things where they were swapping “I
love you’s” only one month into it. They dated
for nine years before they got married in the
church that they met and grew up in. After
three years of marriage, they renewed their vows at The Big Fake Wedding New Orleans!
Ok. So, Ashley and her team found me on Instagram a few months back and asked if I would love to be a part of their upcoming event this past December. I was so excited all of my annoying hashtags finally paid off and I said YES! This was such an amazing opportunity for my team to meet new wedding vendors and take a little trip to the most exciting city of weddings, EVER.
December 7, 2017. The coldest, most drab and wet day that ever existed. No lie. It snowed that night if you don’t remember! Snow in LA!! Stomping around NOLA’s streets in 40 degree weather wasn’t the most exciting thing we’ve ever done, but got better when our team made a beer run for the whole crew and warmed things up a bit! 😉
Well, you guessed it. New Orleans at the Beauregard-Keyes Historic House+Garden! Home of the best brunch spot, Elizabeth’s! Not to mention a million other amazing things, like the best brides and second lines ever!
Why not?! This was the perfect opportunity for us to meet new vendors, get creative (and I mean really creative, it rained ALL DAY LONG!) and have some fun!
So the entire day wasn’t totally fake. Our couple was real, their vow renewal was real (YES! That’s my husband standing in as the officiant!), the dress, the tux, the cake, the rain, the hard work, the chill bumps, the smiles, the laughs, the love, everything about it!
This was a full day for us, two days actually. We had a ton of fun, met a ton of new peeps and made some new friends! It came and went as fast as the snow melted. We all put so much time and hard work to make this day so awesome so check out the vendor list below!
