French Al-Fresco: The Big Fake Wedding 2018 Event Recap

This year’s Big Fake Wedding brought a French al-fresco celebration to The White Sparrow Barn, showcasing North Texas vendors in a unique bridal fair event! This year’s DFW event featured a plethora of local bridal vendors, like Tease to Please, who provided hair and makeup for the bridal party, Top Tier Rentals, who brought in furniture and props to bring the French al-fresco theme to life and Nightowl Coffee Cart, who graciously caffeinated the event’s guests with their delicious fare! The Hilton Dallas/Rockwall Hotel, just a short drive from The White Sparrow, provided waterfront accommodations for guests. Luxurious linens, overflowing organic greenery and an incredible ceremony backdrop by Alba Dahlia Floral and pops of blue amongst the decor helped transform the venue into something reminiscent of the French countryside to inspire brides and grooms to embrace their wanderlust and emulate the intimate, romantic French vibes in their own wedding days! Take a peek through the images below to catch a glimpse into what The Big Fake Wedding offers North Texas brides. Curious about the next Big Fake Wedding event?

From the event organizers: “Happiest vacationing in the French countryside, this bride and groom channel their ‘home away from home’ with a French-inspired wedding. They celebrate their love for this area, and each other, by creating a modern al fresco experience with unique textures, authentic flavors and organic details. We resisted the urge to over-color the event, letting natural elements and the patio environment do the talking.”
