Thank you so much for stopping by Capitol Romance ~ An Offbeat DC Weddings Blog! My name is Bree and I am the editor and founder of Capitol Romance, which I started in early 2011, after getting married in Washington, DC. Getting married in Washington, DC was TOUGH - one, because I didn’t have a huge budget and two, because I wanted to do something a bit different than the traditional DC wedding scene. I wanted something offbeat, something non-traditional wedding with lots of DIY details. Small budgets and non-traditional weddings aren’t exactly the “norm” in Washington, DC and because of that, I had a pretty hard time finding vendors, venues, and resources that would accommodate both of these things. So after I got married, I thought, well – why not start a DC wedding blog myself? I could help other couples in the Washington, DC area that wanted an offbeat, non-traditional, or budget-friendly wedding. So I did and since then, I have spent my days, weeks and months building my blog to include unique and nontraditional wedding inspiration (with a focus on DIY), rad DC MD & VA wedding vendors, and wedding advice, to help the DC area couples plan an honest, altruistic wedding without breaking the bank. The bottom line is: I want Capitol Romance to be a resource for wedding-planning couples of the Nation’s capital, and I work towards that goal every day! So, if you are planning to have a kick-ass wedding in the DC metro area [Richmond, VA up to Baltimore, MD] that truly reflects who you are as individuals and a couple, then I want to hear from you! Or if you need help planning your offbeat DC area wedding, then I want to hear from you too! Please let me know how I can continue to help.
