The Big Fake Wedding took Chicago by storm last summer by throwing the most epic Dark & Stormy themed event at the stunning Company 251 Event Venue. The wedding expo featured some of the most talented local vendors, and Hitched was thrilled to provide and style the Groom with a black wedding band to fit the gothic theme.

To follow the theme, vendors were challenged to pull together “mid-century modern inspired details and shadowy mystique", to create an enigmatic, moody vibe. We must say, every vendor hit it out of the park.

The Groom's Wedding Band

When it came to styling the groom, we knew immediately that we wanted to provide a Black Tungsten 6mm band to compliment the dark hues on the inspiration board. At Hitched, we offer a variety of black wedding bands for men in a wide range of styles.

We felt that a black, modern style would best suit the Dark + Stormy theme, which left us with a few options, such as our Tungsten Classic Brushed 6mm band and our Tungsten Flat Edge 8mm band.

Looking for a wedding band with a little more edge, we ultimately chose to feature and style the Groom with our Tungsten Beveled Edge Polished 6mm band in Black

Not only was the venue stunning and the vendors top-notch, but it was an honor to be a part of a beautiful couple celebrating their love and marriage. It was an evening to remember!
