Doing a little something different on the blog today! I had the privilege of connecting with Jackie, of Rust Manor House & Nature Sanctuary out in Leesburg, over email a few weeks back and had scheduled a time to drop by and meet her in person! The Rust Manor House is only a half an hour out from my home and I reached there on a day that was the perfect transition from summer to fall. The beautiful historical house hosts a beautiful foyer with the most gorgeous chandelier, parlor and dining room, a library that makes you feel right at home, a bridal suite and their 68-acre grounds that are the perfect site for a ceremony and tented reception that is capable of hosting up to 200 of your friends and family.

I spent the first twenty minutes talking with Jackie getting to know her in person, and I’ve never met a venue coordinator that was so easy to relate and talk to! She immediately made me feel welcome at their place and I can’t wait to work with her again. I got to learn about how business had picked up so much for them in the past couple of seasons and what their fall season is looking like this year. If you haven’t ever heard about them and are looking for a venue, you should check out their website and take a look at the pictures below. For any photographers, if you’re looking for a great venue to host a styled shoot in the winter, look no further! I will most surely be back soon to hopefully shoot a wedding or a styled shoot soon!
