Capitol Romance: Sharon & Rob’s Industrial, Outdoor Maryland Engagement Session

No Comments

I really love when couples opt for atypical engagement shoot locations. Sharon & Rob did just that – choosing a private residence in Silver Spring, Maryland that has old, dilapidated buildings with abandoned rooms and fallen walls in the middle of the woods. I also loved the contrast of their stylish engagement shoot attire against the muted walls of the old buildings.

This engagement feature with Rob & Sharon’s beautiful love story is sure to give you some warmth on this (ridiculously) cold, snowy DC day! Images provided by Marcella Treybig Photography & submitted via Two Bright Lights.

Rob & Sharon’s Outdoor, Industrial Engagement Session in Silver Spring, Maryland

How they met:

A mutual friend introduced Rob and Sharon over Thanksgiving break 2005.  Since Sharon was still at Northeastern in Boston and Rob was at WashU St. Louis, they didn’t really keep in touch.  Fast forward to June 2007 when Sharon was home after graduation.  Once again, the pair connected through mutual friends, and spent the rest of the summer dating.  Sharon was convinced she wanted to work in Boston, and moved back in September.  Rob came to visit, making her realize where her heart truly was: in DC!!  They have been inseparable ever since.

Wedding Music That Doesn’t Suck: “San Francisco” by The Mowglis

No Comments

wedding music that doesn't suck graphic

I cannot believe wedding season is upon us! I celebrated my first wedding of the year as a guest on Saturday and thankfully the weather decided to behave for a bit and give us a beautiful outdoor ceremony on the Bay in Woodbridge, VA. Alex and Jim both looked amazing and their wedding was so beautiful, I can’t wait to share it.

But now the weather is back to its old habits (snow?! Seriously!?) and it’s Monday and I need a song like this one to help me have any chance of making it through this day.

We can thank Alt Nation on Sirius again for this week’s wedding music that doesn’t suck, song suggestion: “San Franciso” by The Mowglis. I seriously cannot get enough of this song, and honestly the entire album.

Wedding appropriate lyrics:
I’ve been in love with love
And the idea of something binding us together
You know that love is strong enough
I’ve seen time tell tales about that systematic drug,
Yeah that heart that beats as one

Are you obsessed yet?? I think this would make an awesome, upbeat first dance song or honestly I think a seriously rad couple could use this as an awesome modern professional song. Or at the very least I’d say this is a must-add to your cocktail hour playlist :)

What do you think? Please tell me I’m not alone in this song obsession. I’ll be continuing to play this song nonstop, but check back this afternoon for our engagement feature!
