Leesburg Wedding | 48 Fields

WEDDING

When planning a Leesburg wedding, 48 Fields is a must see venue!  Rachel & Rick absolutely fell in love with the laid back feeling of the venue and knew it would be the perfect vibe for their fall wedding.

Wedding Invitation for 48 Fields Barn Wedding in Leesburg, VA

48 Fields is an incredible venue for styling!  The newly remodeled farm house is available for getting ready and was designed with photography in mind.  The small living room downstairs contains a rustic wood coffee table, which made the perfect backdrop for styling invitations and other bridal details.  The bride wanted to make sure I included the cork from the bottle of Dom Perignon Champagne, which will come up again later.

You may remember this three stone sapphire and diamond ring from Rachel & Rick’s winter engagement session at Great Falls, MD.  It’s amazing how different a ring can look when styled different ways.

5: First Look at 48 Fields

Rachel and Rick’s first look was one of the more emotional ones I’ve seen.  I love the way they love each other, but Rick in particular melted when he saw Rachel for the first time on their wedding day.   It reminds me a little of their engagement photos from Great Falls.

One of Rachel & Rick’s personal traditions is exchanging two cards instead of one when they exchange cards.  One funny card and one sweet card.

Rachel & Rick chose to have their ceremony in the side yard between the barn and the farm house.

The floral arch built by Lark Floral was a stunner! And employed similar blooms to the ones from Rachel’s bouquet in a palette of burgundy, pinks, & green

This moment with all three groomsmen coming out of the barn with the groom just peeking around the corner is one of the favorite candid wedding photos from the day.

Rachel was escorted down the aisle by her father, while Rick waited.  The first look took nothing away from the emotion of their moment.

10: The Shoe Game

The Shoe Game remains one of my favorite wedding traditions.  I learn so much about the bride and groom when they play….and even they may learn something about each other.
