Roswell Mill Engagement Session | Rhushanda + Devon
A few months ago we joined forces with wedding blog, Chic Brown Brown for a Free Engagement Session giveaway. Brides were asked to submit their love stories and state why they should be the recipient of the engagement session. After tons of inquiries and so many great stories, Rhushanda and fiancé Devon were selected as our winners! After we discussing the perfect location, we decided on beautiful Roswell Mill. It’s awesome natural trails and scenic landscape provided a beautiful backdrop for portraits to graces the couple’s home.
Here is a little about the couple in their own words.
How did you meet:
We met through social media in 2010 while I was a junior attending Howard University in Washington, DC. He reached out to me asking me to become his friend on the site and I quickly accepted. I was immediately drawn to his page because he had reggae music playing in the background and had a status update saying he had just returned from Jamaica. Through our conversation, I learned that he was Guyanese which was cool with me since I am Jamaican and had been looking for Caribbean friends to hang out with in the DMV area. We spoke on the phone every night for about a little over a month (even while I was in Miami with my friends for Spring Break) before deciding to meet up.
Tell us about your first date:
Our first date was filled with lots of laughs, eye rolls, and Guyanese food. He invited me to a local park in his neighborhood and met me at the Metro Station which was very close to his house. It took us about 15 minutes to get to the park so we laughed and joked about things we had talked about on the phone while walking there. Once there, we watched a couple of pick up games, ate the food he brought from his Aunt’s house, and spent the rest of the time just talking about our lives. After about 6 hours, I decided it was time to leave. Devon dropped me off at the Metro Station and we’ve been hanging out ever since.
What is your favorite thing to do as a couple?
Our favorite thing to do would have to be trying new restaurants or playing with our puppy Marley.
Rhushanda and Devon will be married this December at the Twelve Hotel Atlantic Station. Join me in congratulating the couple on their upcoming union.
