Good Monday morning to you! We’re starting off the week with a heavy dose of pretty and I can’t complain! Today’s modern Washington DC wedding from Brian Tropiano Photography draws on a fresh cranberry and black color palette. It’s a nice modern addition to the traditional Catholic wedding ceremony and expansive backdrop of the Newseum (join us later to see their wedding reception!) all perfectly put together by Janice at Bellwether Events. And, we love a bride with great style! Patty rocked a Anna Maier Ulla-Maija gown and, even better, she’s here to share a little more about their wedding inspiration!
From Patty: We wanted to throw a great party and really showcase DC to our friends and family. When we saw the fantastic views of the Capitol from the Newseum roof terrace we knew that it was a top contender for our reception site. We also loved the modern feel of the building. Add in Wolfgang Puck Catering, and we were sold.
We kept with the modern theme with our flower choices and colors (raspberry and black and a little bit of bling, too!) We incorporated this into our reception decor, welcome boxes, and ceremony programs. While we made some things ourselves we did find that there were great vendors on Etsy that can make almost anything you want from my earrings and flower girl tiaras to our wedding invitations.
