Before Jennifer was our CEO, she was our first ever surprise real wedding! Since then, she and her husband have become the owners and stewards of The Big Fake Wedding. With their experience in growing and expanding business internationally, they make the perfect team to carry out our vision and mission.
Austin is in charge of bringing on stellar vendors in a number of our cities, as well as managing our incredible sales team. She is also overseeing our first ever baby show, Swaddle + Swoon. Austin and her husband live in Columbia, SC with their four little ones!
Vice President of Sales
Say hello to Ashleymae – you can take the girl out of California but you can’t take the California out of the girl. If her love for escape rooms gives you any indication, she’s always up for an adventure. One of Ashley’s main strengths is woo (winning others over), so she makes the perfect Production Manager.
Director of Production
Abigail is a born and bred Georgia Peach and Berry College Grad! In her spare time you can find her sipping on wine with her family, listening to murder-mystery podcasts and hosting themed dinner parties for her closest peers. One day she hopes to have a bed & breakfast in Franklin, Tennessee!
Director of Marketing
Jamie started on our team back in The NotWedding days and eventually worked to bring our event to the northeast, specifically Cape Cod. Jamie owns a wedding planning business, Cape Cod Celebrations, but loves being a part of The Big Fake Wedding team where she gets the chance to produce events all over the country.
Jessica is our Minneapolis-based production manager! Her biggest strength is optimism and flexibility is practically her middle name. If she isn’t curled up with a good book (suspense is her current genre of choice), she is out on the town exploring the newest and prettiest place to get her prosecco fix.
Callie started The Big Fake Wedding (then called The NotWedding) in 2008. After eight years of growing both the business and her family (they’ve welcomed three little girls in that time!), she has moved from her title as Owner to Founder. Callie is now the Director of Growth for Lasting: an app that makes marriage counseling accessible to all!
