The couple on Friday, the day they got engaged.
Roll Call‘s lead “Heard on the Hill” columnist Elizabeth Brotherton became engaged Friday to former TWT film critic Sonny Bunch, FishbowlDC has confirmed. Bunch works at Berman and Company, a public affairs firm.
The couple met at Roll Call back in September 2005. “His last week as an editorial assistant here was my first week,” Brotherton explains, noting that they’ve officially been together since January 2006.
Brotherton and Bunch got engaged Friday as they were leaving for a weekend jaunt to Williamsburg, Va. “As we were leaving our apartment, Sonny asked if I had everything,” she explains. “I said I did, and then he said, ‘Wait, there’s one more thing’ and got on his knee to propose.”
When or where the wedding will take place is still unknown, although they are tentatively aiming for the fall of 2011 in D.C. or the greater region.
Congratulations to the happy couple.
