Stylish Modern Wedding in Washington, D.C.

urban couple's portrait

Gold, glamour, and bright flowers all came together beautifully for Nicole and Fernando’s stylish modern wedding, captured by Sarah Culver Photography. The Mead Center for American Theater venue was amazing to begin with, but with the addition of their sparkling black and gold color scheme and gorgeous floral design, the couple’s special day took chic to whole new level.

The Couple: Nicole and Fernando

The Wedding: Mead Center for American Theater

The Inspiration: What we were really looking for was a contemporary venue and we were so happy when we discovered the Mead Center for American Theater. The gorgeous windows with natural wood beams and the Fichlander Stage as backdrop helped inspire our contemporary yet glam wedding. Our main colors were black and gold but we included pops of color with our vibrant flowers and some sparkles to brighten everything up.
