Each year in Seattle the Wedding Preview Event gathers a talented group of wedding professionals into four teams and each team presents part of an extravagantly creative fake wedding. Each of the four teams chooses their own theme, emphasizes their own expertise, and finds their own couple willing to get fake-married in front of an audience. It's an exploration of what is possible and It's spectacular.
This is Jackie and Rusty. My team's couple. She's a talk show host and held a contest to find her fake groom for the day. Rusty had met Jackie on Facebook a few years before but when he saw the contest he took it by storm and won it. But better yet, they started real-dating before the contest even ended and he was chosen for their fake-wedding. So fun!
I got to spend an hour with them before the event and made this little film to kick it off and to introduce the fake-ceremony. Jackie and Rusty's processional began as soon as the film ended.
Note: The titles are reversed because the audience sat on both sides of the screen.
