White Castle Royal Wedding

Merkley + Partners, Fall 2016

GCDs: Eddie Van Bloem and Saks Afridi  |  CW: Dan Aguinaga

Long before Taco Bell and KFC, White Castle has been considered a place for lovers— first dates, Valentine's days and over the last 10 years, 75 couples have tied the knot at a White Castle. So, in 2016 we created the White Castle Royal Wedding Contest.

Social Campaign

One couple would win an all expense paid wedding in Las Vegas for themselves and six of their friends as well as a seven day honeymoon in Belgium. We used an eighteenth century town crier to tell the internet this was happening. We trolled newly engaged couples and encouraged them to enter. In the end over 2,000 couples entered. It was as  ridiculous as it sounds.

Hear ye! Hear ye! The White Castle® Royal Wedding Contest has commenced!

The Wedding Day, Spring 2018

Once Whitney and Adam were crowned (on FB Live, by the Town Crier) we planned the most elegant wedding ever to be held in a White Castle.

This Couple Just Got Married At White Castle, And It's Classier Than You Could Ever Imagine

Adam Mandel's love of White Castle goes way back to long before he met his wife, Whitney Wicker. "I'm from New York, so I have been eating White Castle my entire life," Adam says. A Texas native, Whitney had only ever eaten the frozen White Castle burgers you can buy at grocery stores before she met Adam.

This Wedding at White Castle Was Surprisingly Tasteful

White Castle has been a part of couple Adam and Whitney's love story since they met, so the two wanted the fast food chain to be a part of their big day. But the Forth Worth, Texas, locals didn't just opt for some White Castle sliders in their catering -the two had their entire nuptials at the White Castle in Las Vegas.
