On Friday I took my two good friends that were visiting from Austin, around the city in what felt like one, day-long perpetual Hot Yoga session. WOW was it humid!! We were biking, walking, and sight-seeing for pleasure, I cannot imagine was work might have been like for any of my vendor friends that had to work an outdoor wedding this weekend! Yikes!
Regardless of the heat & humidity, we had a blast. Maybe even a little too much fun as I feel my eyes feeling heavy & my back slightly aching at just 8pm on a Sunday ;) Maybe those are just the signs that I really am getting closer to 30.
I digress. We are kicking things off this week with a really beautiful engagement session in Old Town Alexandria, from Sheaulee Ng Photography. Winne & Ryane began they love story on an ice skating trip at the sculpture garden (something I still have yet to do!) and decided to enter the next chapter of their lives together with a proposal at Times Square on New Years! A bit later Ryane actually proposed AGAIN at their home in Alexandria, VA :) How many lucky people get to say they got proposed to not once, but twice?!
So enjoy this beautiful Old Town Alexandria engagement session this morning and check back later today for the winner of our Cupcakes & Cocktails Ticket Giveaway AND the announcement of a NEW giveaway! Monday – let’s do this!

Their love story, from Rayne:
It all started with a look as I finally caught her eye. As I looked back, I saw these beautiful eyes with a lovely smile and a gentle spirit. That one look led to a date ice skating at the sculpture garden where we held hands for the first time followed by more dates and eventually the first kiss. As a new couple, we became inseparable as we got to know each other better.
They decided to have their engagement session in Old Town Alexandria,. VA because:
…we have spent many days and nights walking, eating and enjoying the sights and sounds of Old Town Alexandria.

After some ups and downs, I realized that I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her so I proposed at the Times Square Visitor Center with a simple wish written on a piece of confetti that later got shot out into the crowd at Times Square to ring in the New Year. Meanwhile, we celebrated the New Year back at home in Alexandria, VA, where I proposed again while Winnie watched her beloved Redskins.
Congratulations Winne & Rayne ~ thank you for sharing your love story with us! A special thanks again to Sheauleen Ng Photography & Two Bright Lights for making this Old Town Alexandria, VA engagement session possible!
