We are mesmerized by the sandy, warm tones and artisan accents tastefully displayed at The Big Fake Wedding San Diego Powered by Macy’s. Our vendors used gold embellishments, candelabras and delicate detail work to transform Sandbox Venue into a dreamy, exotic villa. They brought this ever-popular inspiration alive with Moroccan lamps paired with oriental cushions, jewel-laced bouquets and a custom color-block ceremony backdrop. See it all in our highlight below!




Meet the Featured Couple

Jackie and Nick met in Delaware while attending college but after Jackie moved to Washington D.C., the two were long distance, flying back and forth to see each other. Once Nick finished his law degree, Jackie and Nick tied the knot at a courthouse in Washington D.C., savoring the time for just the two of them before moving cross country to San Diego. Fast forward 14 years, they are in love just as much as they were back then and now share a rescue pup named Benny! Even though, both Jackie and Nick are East Coasters originally, they love the casual vibe and beautiful scenery of San Diego, California!
