Our friends over at The Big Fake Wedding have sent us over another event. If you aren't familiar, The Big Fake Wedding is one of the coolest ideas in wedding shows. Knowing that real events can often spark the best inspiration, they create an actual elopement or vow renewal and let select vendors show off their talents. For this Portland show, we wanted to showcase the amazing tropical theme, rich purple and blue color palette, and modern Northwest influence. Here are just a few of our favorite things from this special event!
