The Big Fake Wedding first contacted The Yacht Club at Marina Shores in 2015 wanting to use our marina backdrop as THE location for their Big Fake Wedding debut for Virginia Beach. We were thrilled to participate!
The Big Fake Wedding® is a bridal show alternative complete with an emotional vow renewal ceremony, light bites and a dance-party reception. “Wedding guests” are brides- and grooms-to-be who get to truly experience the wedding vendors in action.
MEET THE COUPLE
Lauren and Bradley met at the non-profit organization where they both worked. These lovebirds were engaged within nine months, and married just five months after that. Check out the FULL STORY.
