Keeping the love going this Monday with a beautiful little DC engagement session from one of our fabulous blog sponsors, Sweet Tea Photography. Alissa & Nathan fell in love in DC, so it made perfect sense for them to do their engagement portraits in the District. Happy Monday Romancers.
Alissa & Nathan’s Springtime, Washington DC Engagement Pictures
How they met:
While Alissa and Nathan had both lived in D.C. for several years, it wasn’t until mutual friends planned a tubing trip in 2012 to Blacksburg, Virginia that the two met. After drinks at one of Nathan’s favorite college bars, TOTS, and a fun weekend on the river, Nathan called Alissa when they returned to D.C. for their first official date at Smith Commons.

Before heading home to see their families for the holidays, Nathan gave Alissa her Christmas present – a red note card that revealed a surprise scavenger hunt. After searching around their apartment for clues, Alissa finally came across a dozen red roses and another card asking her to dinner after the holidays. That next Saturday evening, after dinner at one of their favorite Italian restaurants, Nathan surprised Alissa with another red card. It hinted that the next surprise was at the St. Regis hotel in downtown DC. Rather than checking in at the front desk, Nathan had secretly checked in earlier that day, and led Alissa to their room. Inside was a hallway of rose petals, champagne and a final note card with a ring. After a few moments of disbelief, Alissa, of course, said yes.
Congratulations you two! Thank you again to Sweet Tea Photography for sharing her images with us. Enjoy the rest of your day!
