It’s Monday. I am feeling anything but rested. But vacation is a little over two weeks away (which actually isn’t relaxing me that much because I have so much to do before then) and we’re just going to have to rest when we can because things aren’t slowing down any time soon. We spent the weekend volunteering, having playdates, and mostly NOT resting. This week will be more of the same, with the Meet the Makers event at Shop Made in DC on Wednesday (come say Hi!!!!), a venue walkthrough on Thursday, and then March For Our Lives & the OWN IT Summit this weekend. Who needs sleep anyway?
But let’s get to today’s posting! Today we re-launched our limited time cherry blossom designs in the #CapRoStore and this Cherry Blossom engagement session is the perfect match for our shop announcement :) Enjoy.
Adam and Marilyn traveled down to DC from the “ Big Apple” for their engagement session. Adam grew up in the area, so naturally the two decided it would be the perfect area to have their engagement photos and wedding.
“Adam and I met at work. He lived in DC and often traveled to the NYC office at least twice a month. Although we met in October 2014, we didn’t actually get to know each other until March 2015 after a company-sponsored football game in several inches of snow. We bonded over our love of movies and music and joked about exchanging movie reviews over the film Whiplash. What Adam didn’t know was that I used to write professionally. Lo and behold, after watching Whiplash, I sent him a full film review on a Friday night. After that, we shared jokes over films like Point Break (the original) and a few other classics. We had our first official date on April 5th, 2015 and kissed on a NYC sidewalk in the West Village under the moonlight. The rest, as they say, is history.”
Adam proposed with an original Catbird engagement ring. The beautiful rose gold ring has that unique vintage feel which fits Marilyn to a tea!
