Let this be a lesson to us all: never shirk your wingman (or wingwoman) duties.
Christina had been dragged along to a show, recruited as a wingman by her friend who was interested in one of the members of the band. Working her role quite well, she made small talk with some of the other band mates after the show, including Andrew, the drummer. Christina thought this guy was really nice, and Andrew thought this girl was really cute. They kept talking after that night, their conversations moving to phone calls and emails. But for six months they remained just friends. Good friends. Who really loved talking to one another. Finally, they decided it was time try out that dating thing, and thank goodness they did.
Andrew and Christina were practically made to live their lives’ adventures together. In the year and a half after they started dating, they travelled through four different countries together, visited countless national parks, and started quite the impressive collection of plane, museum and concert tickets—all made so much more wonderful by the fact that C+A got to experience them side by side. And now? Now it’s a different kind of adventure, but maybe the most exciting one yet. This August, these world travelers will be married at Prince William Forest Park (so fitting!) surrounded by family and friends.
And all because of some excellent wingman-ing. ;)
I wandered with Christina and Andrew all throughout Georgetown last weekend and had so much fun learning their sweet story and hearing all about their plans for their day—it’s going to be incredible, y’all!! I for one can hardly wait for it, but before I get ahead of myself, I’m so excited to share their gorgeous spring Georgetown engagement session! Enjoy a few of my favorites of this wonderful pair!
I adored Christina’s bright orange dress with the purple of the wisteria… so much pretty! Gah, y’all are adorable! So sweet!! Both of you! And then we found the brightest, most colorful street in all of Georgetown :) …and it just happened to perfectly compliment C+As’ outfits! Love love love! Oh Georgetown, you’re always the prettiest! Backstory! Smurf has gone on many an adventure with Christina and Andrew and his presence is always documented, so of course he needed to be included in their engagement session! Love this!
