It was a really nice weekend over here at Capitol Romance HQ. Andy & I enjoyed an excellent impromptu date night (margaritas!) on Friday night and then Saturday I got to work a truly beautiful & awesome wedding at Glen Echo Park. We capped it off yesterday with some shopping at our favorite local vintage shops (Miss Pixies, Good Wood & Simon Vintage) and Andy watched Evie while I hit up some MUCH NEEDED yoga at Maketto (it’s FREE on Sundays! Join me next time!). It’s a busy week here as its full of personal and professional appointments – so let’s get it going!
Amber and Obi are getting married in August at Meadowlark Gardens, and they started their adorable engagement pictures at Busboys & Poets before heading over the bridge to Georgetown. The gorgeous graffiti, beautiful couple, and Amber’s stunning offbeat engagement ring (a yellow diamond!) make these two a perfect Capitol Romance couple!
From the Bride (How they Met):
Obi and I met randomly outside of the gym at my apartment complex. Obi lived in the townhouses next door, and was using his coworker’s access key to use the gym. I don’t remember the reason, but I got off work early and was headed to the leasing office which is right next to the gym. Obi saw me walking and came outside to introduce himself, and the rest is history!

From the Bride (The Proposal):
Obi proposed during a double dinner date at Busboys & Poets – Shirlington the day before my birthday, also the location of our third date. Halfway through dinner he said something like ‘well I think you’ve waited long enough’ and got down on one knee- we’d been together for 5.5 years at the point. My best friend who was hiding around the corner filmed the whole thing! His best friend who was eating dinner with us also filmed the proposal! We’re so grateful to have that moment captured on video.
