romantic rust manor house wedding Brett Denfeld PhotographyDELANEY & 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… Barry-Wedding-9_WEBBarry-Wedding-16_WEBBarry-Wedding-18_WEBBarry-Wedding-37_WEBBarry-Wedding-39_WEBAnd then the flowers got there and I had to take some more ring shots… duh:)Barry-Wedding-45_WEBBarry-Wedding-38_WEBDrooling 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!Barry-Wedding-49_WEB
