Patch Palette: Urban Elegance in Black and Gold

It’s been a while since we’ve published a Patch Palette post, so today we’re bringing you some golden goodies! A wedding of moody, romantic washes of black with shiny sweeps of gold fits beautifully with the current time of the year as well – a perfect palette to accompany our transition into the more solemn, tranquil qualities of the wintertime. Metallic accents also surround the event with an essence of poised elegance, thereby transforming the otherwise dark, dreary atmosphere into a golden stitchwork of urban texture

Real Wedding Wednesday: Downtown D.C. Modern Metallic Mix

Katie and Steve wanted a wedding of contemporary feels while at the same time highlighting the historical significance of a city they both grew up around – and so, with each endearing moment captured Abby Jiu Photography, the pair celebrated this special day at Potomac View Terrace at the American Pharmacist Association. Here, with its beautiful rooftop and historic facade, the couple donned an artfully arranged palette of gold and rose gold with brilliant berry hues, all juxtaposed against stark blacks. As an added voice to their originality, a traditional string quartet serenaded the pair with some of their favorite Kanye West hits, while exquisite edibles of mid-Atlantic and Southern origins later surrounded the people’s senses. Bedecked with floral-tipped terrariums through and through, this wedding was truly a modern visual masterpiece!

We would like to give a big shout-out to our team of vendors, as none of this could have been possible without your tasteful contributions! And to our lovely bride and groom, may this day set the basis of bright aesthetics for the future!
