The Big Fake Wedding Nashville: Roma Red Wedding Inspiration

June 25, 2015

In May I had the opportunity to be involved in The Big Fake Wedding once again! For those of you who don’t remember, last June I was a vendor for this event and last November Ben and I actually got to be the bride and groom! Needless to say, I love what this company does, and it was so fun to participate for a third time.

This time, the inspiration for the Big Fake Wedding centered around Italian influence: Roma red and lush greens, intricate details reminiscent of duomos and artistic masterpieces, but balanced by the fresh, unfussy feel of an Italian family-style meal. To actualize this theme I chose petal-heavy blooms like peonies and garden roses, and then contrasted them with lush, untamed greenery and textures. I threw in some saracena swamp lilies because their unique patterns remind me of a cathedral! As always, it was so exciting to see what all of the other fantastic vendors had cooked up! Lots of kisses to all my friendors (full list of vendor credits is at the bottom of this post).
