Can you tell I am excited to finally have a little winter in the weather? Kicking of the 2016 blogging season with this SNOWY (please, can we get SOME snow soon?!) Virginia engagement session. I hope you guys had a great Holiday break and OMG HOW IS IT 2016!? There is so much to do but I love the start of a fresh new year – it’s like this wide open canvas in front of me, just waiting to be scribbled all over. I can’t wait to see where this year takes me and Capitol Romance.
This little blog will celebrate it’s FIFTH year in business at the end of this month. I really cannot believe I’ve been blogging for 5 years. It’s grown in ways I NEVER imagined when I started it and I am just so excited to see where it goes next. Thank you to my readers (old and new) that maybe just found Capitol Romance or have been reading since the beginning. You guys make this blog & business possible. Let’s do this 2016.
How they met:
I was leading a bible study that she was a part of, and we got to know each other a little bit. She claims that what lead her to like me was when I made Guacamole for our Bible study and apparently I am really good at it. I first started to notice her one night when it snowed, and we did a little redneck sledding, which means we tied a tow rope behind my Jeep and pulled people through the snow. I decided I was going to try just being pulled on my body and she was the only other one to volunteer even over all the guys and I was like yep that is the one.

I knew we all wanted to go camping together, so I got my cousin Jessica to propose a camping trip for the group of us to go. I got Jessica to propose the Idea so Stefanie would think nothing of it. We went camping at the Priest in Nelson County, Va which is by Crab Tree Falls. We got there Friday night and set up camp. In the morning everyone secretly got up and hiked to the top of the mountain except us. I knew Stef was a heavy sleeper and wouldn’t think anything of it. When we woke up I just told her that everyone else must have just started hiking without us because we woke up late. When we got to the top of the mountain everyone was already in place hiding and waiting. We went out to the spot with best view, I popped the question and she said yes. Boom!
