You Suddenly Complete Me

A celebration that successfully pairs leather, wood, and copper with the soft textures of linen and polka dots.

“The Frederick Douglass Maritime Museum featured a show in February 2019 called “NonToxic Masculinity,” featuring artists Jerry Prettyman and E.L. Briscoe. The content of the show was meant to show a re-interpretation of the stereotypical view of masculinity. After visiting the museum, we left knowing we needed to add to this conversation by showing the juxtaposition of masculinity and tenderness, as depicted by our couple, Michael and Patrick. We used soft textures of linen and polka dots, often renowned as feminine, and paired them with leather, wood, and copper, often seen as a hyper-masculine aesthetic.  Coffee & Calligraphy was the first vendor we contacted to carry out our vision. The owner Yvonne lettered Yeah Yeah Yeah’s lyrics on a large piece of leather we sourced. The lyrics were both romantic and formal, eloquently written by one of our favorite bands. Patrick and Michael tied the knot, for real, this past October.” – Anna & Jordan, The Otherside Creatives
