heidi+mike// the big fake wedding, chicago, illinois

a few months ago, the big fake wedding reached out to me to be one of their vendors at this years chicago event. i, of course, thought it was spam...they found me on instagram...and with my itty bitty following, it didn't understand how the went about contacting little ol' me. long story short- it's real. and SO MUCH FUN. i love weddings so freakin much- even for complete strangers. even if they're fake. and even if i'm working the whole time.

heidi and mike, an already married couple, were nominated by a few different friends to renew their vows with the big fake wedding. and i can understand why! they're so sweet and goofy. and so in love and deserving of an anniversary celebration. below is just a peek into their beautiful day.

this collaboration was a labor of love. i've tagged all the involved vendors below! our event was also featured on Ruffled blog and The Big Fake Wedding blog -check out their highlights too!
