The Big Fake Wedding (TBFW) Seattle Show 2022
The Big Fake Wedding (TBFW) is an alternative, national wedding expo that made its way to Seattle last May 2022 with a dark and moody theme called Cigarette Daydreams. The show was covered by Junebug Weddings and subsequently featured on their blog. We were lucky to be a part of the expo by designing the ceremony backdrop and two tables for the reception.
TBFW allowed real life couple Nicole and Elliot to review their vows in style. Their friends made up the wedding party and “wedding guests” (or expo attendees) were made up by family members and Seattleites alike. The alternative wedding expo gave engaged couples across PNW a chance to experience what a real wedding at Block 41 would feel like. While vendors like us got a chance to showcase our work to make the venue come alive. It was an experience like no other, and we were honored to be a part of such an incredible team.
Congratulations (again) to Nicole and Elliot! Thank you for letting us design the perfect vow renewal for you. Below are some of the photos from the expo showcasing our designs, paired with some of our favorite photos featuring the amazing vendor team we were on. A complete vendor team can be found at the end.
