Love On The Boardwalk
Sometimes a wedding can be all fun and games. At Calamigos Ranch in Malibu, Sarah Tuberman and Ben Green transformed their shared love of board games into the theme of their elegant yet playful wedding. Everywhere guests looked, there were tasteful touches that highlighted the couple’s beloved pastime. The chuppah beneath which the ceremony took place teemed with roses in hues that echoed those of Monopoly game cards; look-alike cards served as place cards during the reception.
At the reception, guests could play an oversize game of Jenga in between rounds of cornhole, which had been customized with the couple’s names. A massive Connect Four board, with discs printed with “Sarah & Ben” in a retro font, was positioned on the dance floor. The couple’s cake was a creative masterpiece consisting of four layers, each one representing a different game. Decorating the dining tables were even more whimsical touches. Cootie catchers, which are usually found on elementary school playgrounds, were given a sophisticated revamp, serving as the menu for the evening. Geometric centerpieces with colorful streamers stood tall, featuring the same shades of roses as those in the chuppah and bringing a rainbow of color to the venue.
