A SUPER productive weekend (crafting! new haircut! rad client consults! a new kitchen table! fun with friends!) and now a short week means EXTRA hustle for me. I have LOADS to do before the Thanksgiving weekend, but I cannot wait to be NJ bound with Andy, Evie & Sadie and enjoy some serious relaxing and food and family. We’re kicking off the week with LOVE (because that is just what we do) and we’ll be blogging through the week with the exception of Thursday. Because on Thursday, you shouldn’t be reading wedding blogs, you should be eating ALL the things and enjoying time with the ones you love. So here goes Deeona & Michael’s super rad, DC engagement session at the National Gallery of Art.
Deeona and Michael met at their University and rapidly fell in love with each other.
Michael wanted the proposal to be really special and meaningful. He had a business trip scheduled to Barcelona and took advantage of it and made it a bit longer in time and took Deeona and the ring with him. Long story short, between looking for the perfect moment, perfect location and being afraid of carrying an expensive ring around ( Barcelona is known by their pickpockets), he end up not purposing in Barcelona and the same way the ring went inside a box to Europe, came back to the States. How funny is that?
After a well-travelled engagement ring, he prepared a super romantic dinner at their house and waited for her to come back home from work and did everything by the book. They’ll get married next May at St. Regis Hotel in downtown DC.
