One of the most beautiful signs of spring in the upper South is the blooming cherry blossoms in Washington, DC and Virginia. We heard from our DC photographer friend Abby Jiu that the mild winter has caused the peak bloom date to move forward (to March 20-23), so gals planning engagement sessions around the blossoms, take note! Whether or not you’re in the Capitol to see the blooms, we hope you’ll love this positively springy inspiration board.
