First off, I was loving your comments from yesterday about Food Network people! So glad you all share my hate for Sandra Lee and love for Paula Deen. The peeps at the party and me all agree with you all that Sandra sucks and Paula should be our next project. Everything is going to have a stick of butter and it’s going to be AWESOME!
Secondly, if you recall, last week I mentioned I was going to visit my first venue this weekend. Thanks again for all your wonderful tips and insight. You guys are the best 🙂
I went to visit Rust Manor House located in Leesburg, VA. I proclaimed it as one of my must sees way back when.
Yeah, I mean, it’s all right. Taking into account what you ladies said about being in love with it at first sight…eh, it wasn’t feeling it. It’s a mansion that was constructed at the turn of the century and made to look older than it was. It was also smaller on the inside than it first appears. The rain plan involved setting up tables inside in two separate rooms on either side of the foyer. Awkward. And if we went with the tent option, there’d be a portapotty involved, since the tent is set up a ways away from the house.
Moral of the story, now I know why I couldn’t find too many pictures of weddings taking place at the location.
HOWEVER, the next place on my list, Woodend Sanctuary, is all over the ‘net. And hopefully, with good reason! Stay tuned to hear about that visit in the near future.
