DELANEY & TJ | A ROMANTIC RUST MANOR HOUSE WEDDING | LEESBURG, VIRGINIA
When Delaney first contacted me about her wedding, I fell in love with her details. From the gorgeous flowers from the garden of Holly Chapple to the romantic vibe of Rust Manor House – Delaney and TJ danced, laughed, and enjoyed an evening with their close family and friends. It may have sprinkled during bride and groom portraits but a little rain never hurt anyone. The rain stopped and we took some romantic portraits in the garden! After a Blink-182 dance marathon and a Nurf gun battle, these two ended the night with a bubble exit! So cute!
I arrived at Rust Manor House to meet Delaney and her close gal pals getting ready for the big day! I started the day by photographing the gorgeous invitations and wedding day details… And then the flowers got there and I had to take some more ring shots… duh 🙂Drooling over this bridal bouquet from Holly Chapple Flowers! Delaney left it up to Holly to create a masterpiece! All Delaney wanted was purple to be incorporated – I think Holly nailed it!
Loved that Delaney chose a bright red lip!
TJ added a Darth Vadar pin to his tie for his groom details!
Bridesmaid and little sister!Groom’s family!Groomsman and groom’s brother!
We left Rust and headed over to the chapel for the ceremony!
TJ’s face – the first time he’s seen Delaney all day!TJ’s mom designed the programs and even made the portrait of them and their dog! SO cute!
Officially, Mr & Mrs Barry!
A trolley took the guests back to Rust Manor House while I took photos of the bridal party across the street from the chapel!Loveeeeee!
By the time we got back to Rust Manor House a storm cloud opened up and it started to rain! I headed into the reception tent to take detail shots while Delaney & TJ relaxed.
Gorgeous!Cakes and pies — can’t go wrong with both!I didn’t have any pie but I did eat the cake and it was delicious!
Not a dry eye in the house! Father/daughter dances get me every time!Penny had the moves!
Delaney and TJ snuck out for a few more photos after the rain stopped!
Haha – TJ posed while I got my light right… I think he learned a thing or two after watching Delaney take bridal photos. Haha!
One of my favorites!! What I loved even more was that Delaney knew how happy I was going to be to take photos by the boxwoods. 🙂 A bride after my own heart!You guys!! SO CUTE!Happy, happy bride!
We entered back into the reception and they cut the cake!And then a nurf gun war broke out…It got intense. Haha!Catherine! My friend from college and the gal responsible for all the pretty calligraphy signage!
Even though I had already taken a million and one bride and groom photos – I somehow convinced them to take one more (or 5) when the sun came back out!
Gotta love some intense dancing shots!The night came to an end with a bubble exit!
Congratulations Delaney and TJ! Thank you choosing me to capture your big day!!!
