Glistening blues and exquisite patterns took center stage at The Big Fake Wedding Birmingham and we imagine once you scroll though these photos, you’ll want your wedding to be just as whimsical and ethereal. Our vendors transformed Avondale Brewing Company into an icy blue lagoon before our eyes, with all the feels of a wintry, white church. Let our “Blue Lagoon” inspo board guide you in your planning to recreate the natural beauty of an Icelandic wedding. See it all in the event highlight below!

As Seen On Wedding Chicks


Meet the Featured Couple

Matthew and Stephanie met on the first day of college at the University of Alabama in 1988.  Sparks flew and the two started dating shortly after. Dating all through college, Matthew then proposed to Stephanie one year after graduating together. In Seaside, Florida, the two lovebirds tied the knot in May of 2004. Almost exactly three years later, they welcomed their daughter, Scarlett. And then three years after that, they welcomed their son Knox into the world! When asked how they keep their marriage strong while both being entrepreneurs, Stephanie said “we always make time for weeknight dinners as a family, no matter what!”

A huge thanks to our amazing team of vendors who helped create an icy blue lagoon in Birmingham!
