The NotWedding Atlanta
Make sure your pinning buttons are at the ready, because this wedding event is sure to inspire you beyond your wildest imagination! Rustic White Photography participated in the The NotWedding Atlanta event, one touted as a “fake wedding to inspire real brides.” If you’re in the San Diego area, be sure to sign up for your tickets to the March 27th show now and tomorrow if you’re in Orlando!
From the photographers, Rustic White Photography: From time to time we’re asked if we have ever done Bridal Shows. We’re certainly not against them, but we have never found one that really appealed to us. Now after participating in The NotWedding I don’t see how we ever could. The NotWedding isn’t a bridal show… it’s a party. Well really it’s a fake wedding to inspire real brides, which in many ways makes it a party. Complete with a ceremony, dinner, and dance party reception The NotWedding brings together hand-selected vendors to perform their services exactly as they would at a real wedding. Now instead of rolling through aisle after aisle at a bridal show guests get to taste the cake, hear the music and watch the vendors in action. We were excited when we were asked to be a part of this year’s The NotWedding, and after working with the gorgeous couple Tinika and Ronnel for their engagement session we were excited to see what The NotWedding day would bring. It’s safe to say it brought a lot.
