A highly personalized yet completely non-traditional wedding is exactly what Magda and Israel wanted and got when they were married in July 2012 at Atlanta wedding venue the W Atlanta Buckhead. The personalization all began with the invitations which were custom Jenga games with the couple’s initials. They continued the game theme throughout with a first ‘game’ instead of a dance and using chess pieces as escort cards. And the quirks didn’t stop there. For the major wow moment, Magda went with a unconventional black wedding dress instead of the traditional white for her walk down the aisle. The guests then dined and danced the night away in celebration of a day that turned out to be an exact replica of the couple. Images by Philadelphia wedding photographer Christensen Photography!
With a theme of games and a color scheme of black and white this was an event to remember. The couple wanted the wedding to not feel like a traditional wedding. They actually did a first game instead of a first dance.
The bold juxtaposition of the black and white color combo could be seen in nearly every event detail like the striped tent over the ceremony altar, wedding cake, linens & even event furniture.
FOOD & CAKE
After being directed to their tables by their chess piece escort cards, guests were treated to a decadent seated dinner with champagne toast catered by W Atlanta Buckhead. Mark Brickman from Baker’s Man created a cake complete with the couple’s initial in black and white.
