After getting married in Washington, DC in 2010, I launched a wedding blog, Capitol Romance, aimed at helping nontraditional and budget-conscious couples plan their DC area wedding. Through the blog I met tons of amazing couples and awesome wedding vendors and I was continually energized by how many people in DC were craving more nontraditional DC wedding resources.
In September of 2011, I decided to bite the bullet and take my love of helping couples further by launching Capitol Romance Wedding Coordination. In 2015 I decided to grow the Capitol Romance Wedding Coordination family and bring on my first Associate Coordinator!
With my blog I hope to provide a one-stop place for the people of our nation’s capitol to get cool, unique, refreshing wedding inspiration and vendor help. I have also recently opened up a side business, offering wedding planning and coordination services.
Have the DC wedding YOU want to have, that truly represents who YOU are, and let Capitol Romance help! Whether it is through the inspiration of my blog OR hire me to plan/design/coordinate your wedding.
I look forward to helping your wedding day be rad, offbeat, and 100% you!

Seamless Day Thanks to Capitol Romance
Early on in our planning process, we weren't convinced we needed a day of coordinator since we were planning a smaller, more intimate ceremony and reception. After meeting Bree over Facetime we changed our mind and are so grateful we did. Leading up to the big day Bree gave us fantastic vendor suggestions (which all panned out perfectly), developed a clear timeline, and eased our family's nerves during the rehearsal. On the day of, everything was executed flawlessly. Bree's easy going and confident nature made both of us feel at ease, and her experience was evident in her suggestions and executions. We are so grateful we decided to hire Bree and Capitol Romance!Sent on 09/30/2019

Alesha, thank you for making sure I could just sit back and enjoy my day!
The title says it all. Alesha with Capitol Romance really made it so I could sit back and enjoy my wedding day and not worry about a thing. Even though Alesha was our day of coordinator, she was available throughout the entire planning process process with recommendations for different vendors and to answer any questions I had along the way. When we did our walk through, Alesha knew all the questions to ask that I would have never thought of. In the two months leading up to the wedding, Alesha did a great job organizing our other vendors and just getting the plan together. Every bride should at the very least have a day of planner, and Alesha and the rest of the Capitol Romance team did a phenomenal job.Sent on 10/06/2019

Made a perfect wedding possible
We worked with Alesha Wilson through Capitol Romance and she was phenomenal. She was incredibly organized, responsive, and on top of things. Knowing she was there truly made it possible to just enjoy the day knowing that everything would go off without a hitch. She was also super helpful in thinking through aesthetic choices for the ceremony, managing the flow of the event, and helping us communicate with our vendors. Would recommend her and Capitol Romance without a second-thought, especially to people on the fence about hiring a coordinator!Sent on 09/22/2019
I can't recommend Bree & her team more! We've worked with the team at Capitol Romance Coordination on a few clients and each time the wedding day has moved so smoothly. She is professional, organized and great at handling anything that crops up. You are in wonderful hands working with these ladies!
As a DC wedding vendor and bride to be, I can say first hand that our town was in need of some help and Capitol Romance was just the right help to come along! Capitol Romance (the blog)- is a breath of fresh air in this town. The style of the wedding blog is off-beat, but not so much so that it makes you uncomfortable. Blog features lots of attainable and realistic wedding inspiration posts, do-able DIY wedding stuff, and the I love that the blog features real life and stylized engagements, elopements, and weddings. Oh and the couples actually look like real people! Bree- is extremely talented with connecting people, styling, creating, and "stepping outside of the box". She challenges the DC wedding scene to higher levels of creativity! As a wedding vendor, I have worked with Bree a couple times and I have been really impressed with her style! I would highly recommend Bree to couples of all walks. Definitely consult with Bree on your wedding planning!
