Bree Ryback - Founder & Editor, Capitol Romance

Biography: Government consultant by day, wedding blogger & coordinator by night. I am the founder and editor of Capitol Romance LLC, a DC based wedding blog & wedding coordination business that focuses on the creative, alternative, and more personalized side of DC weddings. I try to showcase REAL weddings from a variety of backgrounds, styles, and budgets and provide resources and inspiration for couples planning a wedding in DC. I love meeting & connecting people of this fine city. In my spare time I love exploring DC with my husband, traveling, hanging with my mini dachshund, Sadie and working on our rowhouse in NE DC.

Why We Trust Her: As a titan in the wedding blogger world, Bree knows pretty much everything there is to know about weddings in DC.  We absolutely LOVE her style and are thrilled to work with her on FuelDC (check it out)!


TASTEMAKER FAVORITES

Weswen Design

I cannot say enough good things about Wendy/Weswen Design. Wendy is the ultimate graphic designer - designing a broad range of items for a broad range of clients. I've worked with her to create custom wedding invitations for a styled shoot (Harry Potter themed) and hired her to crate a custom design gift for my cousin's nursery. If I need something design-related, I go to Wendy. Top notch quality and service!

Cherry Blossom Creative

Cherry Blossom Creative is one of my FAV design companies in DC. They are huge on the local market scene and their designs are fresh, new, and whimsical. Their neighborhood prints are one of my personal favs (I have one hanging in my house!) and the ladies that run it are amazing too!

Alison Harper & Co

Alison Harper & Co is a force to be reckoned with. Hair styling goddess, make-up artist maven, and business woman extraordinaire. She knows how to run (and grow) a serious business of hair and makeup professionals. Their service is the best and their branding is awesome. Alison is also super awesome and I've loved getting to know her in the DC wedding scene.

An Endless Pursuit Photography

An Endless Pursuit are some of the best photographers I know. In addition to the fact that they are amazing at their trade, the husband and wife team are also two of the most dedicated, kind, and inspiring people I know. They investment deeply into their clients to create a personal and lasting relationship that truly benefits both parties in the partnership.
