I thought I had photographed at all of the best wedding venues in the area!? Nope, I just added another one to the list. The Rust Manor House in Leesburg, VA is a fantastic spot for a wedding. Amy and Ryan were married there this summer and I was lucky enough to be the photographer. The Rust Manor House is a classic Virginia mansion, with gorgeous, manicured grounds. The couple did not remove the smiles from their faces all day, but I would say the highlight might have been the buried bottle of whiskey. An old tradition dictates that you bury a bottle in the morning on the grounds where you will be wed. Later that evening Ryan lead a search party with shovels and flashlights to find the bottle. After digging it up the bridal party took turns drinking from the bottle, mud and all. Great tradition. Great wedding.
