When Lauren and Justin first contacted me about their wedding next year at Rixey Manor, I had a great feeling about them from the start. They seemed to have all the best priorities in mind and I was excited to meet them. Our first meeting in person was at their engagement session since they both live out of state. Lauren and Justin had decided on the Manassas Battlefield Park engagement session. The tall grass and the beautiful Fall colors (despite a lackluster year for leaves) gave a sweet, warm vibe…which was just perfect for these two!
We managed to get the Manassas Battlefield Park at just the right time, too. Although it was chilly, the wind was still and the temperatures were much less biting than had been forecasted earlier in the week.
Everything about this session was incredible. Not only are Lauren and Justin just right for each other, but their love of the outdoors made this the perfect location. Even the historic canons were perfect for Lauren and her military man!
We drove to more than one location along the battlefields and it was fun to explore this new place together. It was wonderful getting to know these two and see help them create a memorable engagement session.
We finished up the evening with photos on a warm blanket they had brought and chatting about wedding plans. It was fun to hear about how they are living life states away while planning a Rixey Manor wedding next year. I truly can’t wait for their big day! Congratulations Lauren and Justin and come to Virginia anytime to visit before then!
