Venue | The Tidal Basin at the Jefferson Memorial

Ring Designer | Catbird | @catbirdnyc

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. They were just in the time for cherry blossom season! Marilyn absolutely loves florals, so of course we wandered around the tidal basin to catch the pink budding blooms!

 

Adam proposed with an original Catbird engagement ring. The beautiful rose gold ring has that unique vintage feel which fits Marilyn to a tea!

 

From the Bride

“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. “
