“Our wedding occurred Jan 13, 2013, in Atlanta, Georgia. It was a fusion of our spiritual beliefs, love for family, love for music, strong beliefs in education and passion for speed. Our colors were black and champagne/ivory with emerald green and moss green accents. I would describe the event as understated elegance. Our wedding party consisted of four groomsmen, four bridesmaids, a ring bearer and bell ringer. We entertained approximately 100 guests in a swanky contemporary loft located in downtown Atlanta. Our ceremony was performed in the round under a chuppah, such that our union could be observed by our closest family and friends from every vantage point in the venue. The reception was preceded with live jazz during a cocktail hour. The evening ended with a motorcycle escort through downtown Atlanta by a motorcycle club. The event was planned and executed magnificently; every detail was purposefully integrated to represent some aspect of the journey of our lives together.”
