While my fingers are a bit cold as I type away at my keyboard this morning, it was SO NICE to wake up to the sun this morning. Now, don’t talk to me later tonight when it’s dark at 5, but for now I’ll be happy with the DST changes. This past weekend we closed out our 2013 wedding coordination season – our first official year of coordinating weddings! Pretty insane. I can’t believe I survived. I learned SO MUCH and met SO many amazing people, I will write an entire reflection post on its own sometime soon, but in case you haven’t seen the sneak peak of our last wedding, it’s over on our Facebook page!
For today we have a really cute, relaxed & casual engagement session in Georgetown from Eastport Photography. I just love Annie & Jeff’s laid-back vibe, style and they met in the Peace Corps in West Africa — how freakin’ cool is THAT?! Happy Monday Romancers, let’s get the love going this week.
Annie and Jeff’s Georgetown Engagement Session in Washington DC
How the couple met, from Annie:
Jeff and I met in the Peace Corps in The Gambia, West Africa. He arrived a year before me and we met at a party celebrating my group officially becoming volunteers after 2 months of training. We liked each other so much he ended up staying an extra year. We lived about six hours away from each other, and visits meant waking up at the crack of dawn to catch a minibus and arriving covered in orange dust. We liked it. We finished our service at the end of 2010 and traveled to Morocco, Spain, and France.
How Jeff proposed:
We moved back to Washington DC at the beginning of 2011. On Columbus Day last year we went for a hike. It was really cold but pretty with the leaves changing. Jeff proposed at the top of a mountain. I bawled and of course said yes. Then it started to hail. We ran back down the mountain and took a short-cut that was actually a long-cut. We arrived at the car cold, tired, and happy.
