Hello! My name is Bree and I live in the Northeast part of Washington, DC with my husband, our daughter Evelyn, and our mini dachshund, Sadie. Other than Harry Potter, I’d say I am slightly obsessed with trying to find the coolest DC area couples that are in love. I started this blog based on my passion for finding and supporting local vendors and helping ALL couples in the Washington, DC area plan a wedding they want to have. I love this city and I want to help couples that also love this city, be able to plan practical, affordable, and awesome weddings wherever they want. Since starting Capitol Romance in 2011, I’ve happily found that lots of people (couples AND vendors) appreciate this desire and share it too!
Since launching this blog, I have decided to grow Capitol Romance into a couple different areas to continue helping couples. First I launched a wedding coordination business, Capitol Romance Wedding Coordination, in 2012 for couples that need a little more “hands on” help with their wedding day. And from there I launched Capitol Romance DIY Wedding Workshops in 2014, to help couples learn how to create special, handmade items for their wedding (with hands-on help and teaching from a local professional). The workshops have since been handed off to the wonderful ladies at District Bliss, but in their place comes a brand new store that I launched this year! The shop will contain LOTS of awesome things to buy, but our first big creation is The Capitol Romance Wedding Planner – a 3-ring binder full of tips, templates, and tools to keep you organized while planning your wedding.
Thanks to you, my readers, and so many awesome people in the city of Washington, DC, I have been able to grow Capitol Romance into places and areas I’ve never dreamed possible. Since launching we now get over 6,000 pageviews a day, with over 6.7K Pinterest followers, 2.5K Twitter followers, 1.5K Instagram followers, and 1.7k Facebook followers. Our top 3 areas of visitors are Virginia, DC & Maryland and readers from those areas spend over 3 minutes, on average, on Capitol Romance each day! Insane.
When I’m not busy working on all things Capitol Romance, I am usually working on my NE DC rowhouse with my husband (which was featured on Apartment Therapy AND Houzz), planning events for Fuel DC, attending Penn State Football Games, collaborating with other local, rad DC small business owners, or spending time with my family & friends.
I love people, the city of DC, and love and I am so happy that Capitol Romance enables me to work with all 3 of those things.
No matter why you read Capitol Romance, I can’t thank you enough for doing so. A blog and business would be a pretty lonely place without others, so thanks for joining this ride with me. I can’t wait to see where Capitol Romance grows in the next few years.
