Thank you so much for stopping by Capitol Romance ~ A 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 an offbeat, 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.
When I am not wedding blogging, you can find me checking out all the awesome local things that DC has to offer, working on my rowhouse with my Husband [which was featured on Apartment Therapy!], planning community services events for At Your Service DC, helping small businesses in DC with Fuel DC Events, and most recently, planning DIY Wedding Workshops for engaged couples in the DC area!
Thanks for stopping by Capitol Romance!
