EastCoast Entertainment has been partnering with The Big Fake Wedding for a couple of years, participating in events from New England to Baltimore. We were thrilled to head a little farther south for the Lexington, KY event last month.
If you’ve never heard of The Big Fake Wedding, the concept is genius. The city’s finest wedding professionals collaborate and design a Pinterest-worthy wedding. The bride and groom are an already married couple who take part in a moving vow renewal ceremony, while the “wedding guests” are future brides and grooms who get to see and experience the wedding vendors in action. We love this video from Sampley Brothers that gives a great overview of the BFW experience.
Agent, Hank Patterson, represented ECE at this event. The Livery, an event space in downtown Lexington, was the host venue. The historic and rustic vibe of the The Livery was the perfect backdrop to the industrial glam aesthetic.
“It was such an honor to collaborate with the best wedding pros Lexington has to offer. I loved the camaraderie that surrounded The Big Fake Wedding — it truly is a team effort. To help a couple recreate the best day of their life and to meet new couples planning theirs, it was a pure joy,” said Hank.
No wedding (even a fake one) is complete without some dance party fun. Diverse Groove brought their A-game and had guests and vendors alike kicking up their heels to today’s chart-topping hits.
We cannot say enough great things about the vendors we worked with during this event. Some were old friends and some we had the pleasure of meeting for the first time, but all were creative, professional and such a blast to work alongside.
