The only trouble with the new announcements is that I need a couple to kick it off! So, I’m giving away the first announcement to help break the ice. That’s right! One of the first five couples to completely fill out the application will receive a complimentary DC area wedding or engagement announcement. I’m looking forward to all of your applications and getting to know many of you even better!

Local football fans will be cheering today – but not for the game! I’m excited to share the utterly romantic Maryland marriage proposal from Baltimore Ravens kicker, Justin Tucker. (If you’re planning a marriage proposal, take some serious notes!) The Baltimore skyline lit up, the candlelit aisle, the music, the secret photographer… it just couldn’t possibly be any more swoon worthy, am I right? Lucky for us, Shawn Hubbard Photography was the secret photographer to capture every last detail!
From Shawn: He planned a dinner for the two of them at Wit and Wisdom in the Four Seasons in Harbor East. At the end of dinner, Justin excused himself to go to the restroom but actually went up to the hotel’s pool deck. A bit later, Amanda was escorted up and was greeted by a huge array of candles, placed there earlier by Union 3 Event Productions who did an amazing job setting the mood. I was REALLY glad they were there, as there was no other available light to be had! Justin also had his friends Alex and Jack from the band All Time Low waiting there playing some nice background tunes.
Congratulations Amanda and Justin!
