Faux wedding events seem to be all the rage these days. Popping up everywhere as an alternative to your typical convention center bridal show, the faux wedding allows “guests” to experience a handful of talented local vendors first-hand and in action as they attend a staged ceremony and reception complete with dinner, dancing, and all the festivities of a real wedding.
KnotCrashers is just one of the latest in these series of faux wedding events and they recently threw a gorgeous bohemian styled vow renewal at the Casitas Estate in San Luis Obispo with the help of some of California’s top wedding professionals. Here’s what Sam & Chanda of Zest it Up had to say about the event:
Jumping on the trend of alternative bridal fairs, KnotCrashers threw an intimate affair at The Casitas Estate in Arroyo Grande, CA. Guests were invited to attend the vow renewal of Laurie & Lance as they were dazzled by a dream team of wedding professionals from the Central Coast. With two professionals for every aspect of ceremony, cocktail, and reception, there was a beautiful array of talent without being overwhelming for the attending brides and grooms. With dinner, dancing, and love filling the air, it was a grand night for all.
