The Big Fake Wedding

As the official hair and makeup artists at this unique bridal event, Authentic Beauty’s team of professional hair (Julia Thaiese) and makeup artists (Stephanie Simmons and Elizabeth M Pacheco) were hand-selected to perform their hair and makeup services just as they would at a real wedding.
And they made the brides look gorgeous at this experiential opportunity for wedding vendors to showcase their products and services to shopping brides and grooms just as they would at a real wedding.
For the brides and grooms, the event serves as a source of inspiration, a resource in finding trusted wedding vendors and an emotional reminder to plan for what comes after the wedding: a marriage! For participating wedding vendors, the event exposes their business to new referral sources, while also exposing each vendor to a wealth of inspiration, resources and confidence to take their business to the next level.
