A venue to be tRUSTed
Rust is AWESOME. Especially because of Jackie and Paul, their wonderful coordinators/managers. The venue is beautiful with tons of options for indoor and outdoor locations. They have a ton of optional amenities that are all included in their extremely reasonable pricing. We loved the tent for the reception and gardens for our ceremony. They were a pleasure to work with every step of the way - especially for the two of us who were generally clueless about how to go about a wedding. Everything went off without a hitch and we can definitely thank Rust for that!Sent on 05/31/2019
Rust Manor House's reply:Will, Thank you so much for your kind words! The day was wonderful and we are happy to know you had a great experience. We wish you all the best in your marriage!

I contacted Rust manor staff during the last week of October 2019 via email for a small ceremony on 11/23/19. It was very last minute but they worked with me very quickly and set up almost everything through email. They were able to accommodate me and my 35 guests on a really short notice. They typically do outdoor weddings but our wedding day was a cold 40 degree day so they hosted our ceremony indoors. We rented the space for 2 hours and it was beautiful. Their prices are beyond reasonable for this area. They keep the place very tidy. The coordinators from Rust Manor checked in with me when we arrived on the big day and even help me set up my guest book. They provided waters for our guests during the ceremony. We loved having our intimate ceremony here.Sent on 12/03/2019

Five stars all around
Rust staff answered all my (many) questions promptly and professionally! They take such great care of you and ensure your wedding day is special and memorable. The spaces in the house to get ready are perfect for close family and the wedding party. There are also tons of great photo ops both inside and outside the house. The property is gorgeous and allowed for a very cozy, romantic day. Can’t say enough great things about this property and staff!Sent on 11/18/2019

Beyond what we EVER imagined!
This venue is incredible. Originally when we were touring venues, we had a different date in mind. Rust Manor house was our 4th venue tour and didn’t have the date we wanted available, but halfway through the tour, we looked at each other and said “we have to change our date! We have to get married here!” After seeing the house and the grounds and meeting the incredible staff, it was a no brainer. They have a full-page list of amenities and decorations they own/have accumulated from previous weddings, and we ended up using a lot of it. Every person I met at Rust Manor was so professional, caring, and knew exactly what needed to happen. We were an out of town couple, but the staff didn’t make us feel like we were... During the planning process, they were available for any questions that came up, and they asked us questions we hadn’t even thought about and made all the details fall into place. Also, they are pet friendly, we had 2 dogs in our wedding with no blips! Every recommendation they gave us turned out to be amazing, especially the catering. We were very impressed with the plated options through their caterer, and our guests and other vendors only had compliments. I could not recommend the property or staff enough! We had our dream wedding pulled off seamlessly, thanks to Rust Manor!Sent on 08/02/2019
Rust Manor House's reply:Thank you so much Mackenzie! We loved having your pups as part of your day, everything was beautiful!

Beautiful Venue with a Great Team
We chose Rust Manor for the beautiful architecture of the house and the gorgeous grounds. The whole place feels very "Virginia-esque." It also feels secluded and special without being too far from town.Sent on 09/27/2019
Not only was the site perfect, but the venue coordinators were such a pleasure to work with. They were professional, easy-going, and always responsive to our many questions. Their guidance and support through the whole process was amazing and made the planning much easier and much less stressful. We were so pleased with the way everything turned out and we couldn't have done it without them.
Rust Manor House's reply:Jamie, thank you so much for your kind words. Your wedding was absolutely gorgeous and we are so glad we were able to help make your day so special. We hope you will come back and visit!

Amazing Wedding at Rust Manor House
We could not have asked for a more perfect day. Jackie was incredible - always super responsive, professional, friendly, and genuinely excited to share in our excitement. The team did a great job during the minor rain storm and everything was ready to go only a few minutes after the rain stopped. I HIGHLY recommend booking Rust Manor for your wedding. It was an incredible venue and an even more incredible day.Sent on 09/10/2019
Rust Manor House's reply:Thank you so much! Rain on your wedding day is good luck, and we are so glad everything went off without a hitch for your big day!

Perfect venue for our wedding
Rust Manor was the only venue my husband and I visited and knew right away when we visited that it would be a perfect place for our ~100 guests wedding. Jackie, the venue coordinator was so responsive and great to work with with all the little details leading up to and on the day of our wedding. We were lucky to find someone like her to work with and give us all her recommendations and tips. As stressful as planning a wedding can be, you want a place that is not only beautiful but that the staff are great and flexible to work with. We also supported the fact that Rust Manor was donated to the Audubon Society and supports natural preservation. We felt that our money to rent the space was supporting a great cause. The one downside is that there are only a few restrooms in the manor and portable johns next to the outdoor tent which is where our reception was held so if guests didn’t want to use the outdoor toilets would have to walk up to the manor to use the stalls. All in all, we and our guests had a wonderful time and unforgettable wedding.Sent on 08/18/2019

This venue is incredible
The grounds and the house are absolutely incredible, and the reception tent was decorated beautifully. But the best part of this venue is the people: we worked with Jackie and she made our lives so much easier. The venue handled set up & clean up, and also assisted with some day of details. They require an in-house caterer (which we initially weren't thrilled about) but it ended up being a GREAT combination. The venue and the caterer worked together seamlessly and made our day even better than we imagined. We would absolutely use this venue again!Sent on 07/31/2019
Rust Manor House's reply:Ariel, Thank you so much! Your day was absolutely stunning and we are so glad you all chose Rust Manor for your special day. We wish you all the best!

Absolute best venue!
Rust Manor House was the first vendor that we booked, and we could not have made a better decision. We obviously loved the beautiful manor house and gardens, but the addition of the air conditioned tent was a must for a July wedding. Plus the fire pit, water for guests, and easy parking. However, what really sold us on the venue was the people! Jackie and Paul were incredible! They were what originally sold us on booking the venue. They are incredibly flexible and went above and beyond to make our wedding perfect (they even crawled out on the roof for us!). No matter how crazy a request was, they were ready to help! Rust responded to all of our questions immediately. We could not have asked for a better venue. Thank you for making our wedding day perfect!Sent on 08/03/2019

Rust Manor is breathtaking!
We had the most picture perfect wedding st Rust Manor. Jacquelyn, Paul and Amy were so easy to work with and quickly answered all my questions. I had all of my items for the wedding labeled and organized with directions on where to put them. They listened to every direction and payed everything out beautifully. They didn’t ask me any questions the entire day when I was busy and just took charge! Our wedding ran like a well oiled machine with no hiccups due to the staff at Rust Manor. The grounds were manicured beautifully and our guests kept commenting on how gorgeous the venue was. We went through the vendor and got Blue Heron as our caterer. The guest kept commenting how delicious the food was especially the beef! There was more than plenty left over for the banquet. We would love to relive our day again it was so fantastic! Thank you so much for our perfect day! We will treasure it forever!Sent on 08/06/2019

Seasoned Veterans in the Wedding Game
It was a BLESSING to work with the folks at Rust Manor House! They are seasoned professionals and not only know how to run a wedding flawlessly, but also how to enhance and improve your wedding day! For example, I had lots of extra greenery and flowers left over, and Jackie asked me if she could use it in other places in the venue. They had made beautiful arrangements around the head table and fire place mantels! Something so small that I never planned on doing, that they didn't have to do (I'm sure they had a million other things going on at the time) really added something so special to the overall look and feel of the day! That is just one example of many. They are extremely responsive to all questions, they have ideas and recommendations for everything, and our whole process from start to finish was smooth sailing. I cannot imagine that there are many other venues in this area (or any) that would take care of their bride and groom like these guys did, ESPECIALLY at this price point! Love, love, LOVE these guys!Sent on 07/16/2019
Rust Manor House's reply:Thank you so much! We loved working with you all and are so happy you had a wonderful experience at Rust Manor!
Amanda · Married on 06/22/2019
Paul & Jackie are completely amazing. From the moment we decided we wanted Rust Manor as our wedding venue, they have made the planning process so easy. Quick responses to emails, working with us to make our dream come true and allowing our personal touch to be all over the venue was by far the best part of this venue. The grounds are beautiful and well taken care of. Our ceremony was intimate and gorgeous. The tent was perfect for our event, fit 100 people very nicely. I could not have been happily with the entire process and day.Sent on 06/29/2016

Beautiful venue, Amazing staff
Rust Manor was a wonderful place to get married! We loved the location. The house and the grounds around it are absolutely beautiful, and the price is reasonable for the DC area. There are many such locations in Leesburg, but we ultimately chose Rust Manor because the staff is so experienced, organized, and friendly. We worked mostly with Jackie. She met with us several times, answered our e-mails right away, and thought of a million small details that we would have otherwise forgotten.
I was a little nervous about having the reception in the tent, but it was perfect! The tent was air conditioned, so our guests were all very comfortable. There was plenty of space on the dance floor, and the kids (and adults) enjoyed making s'mores in the fire pits outside.
It was a great experience, and I would recommend Rust Manor in a heartbeat!

We love Rust! Everything we could have wanted
We toured Rust over a year and a half in advance of the wedding and were wowed immediately. We looked at a few other places, but knew this was the place for our wedding. Jackie and Paul at Rust are super nice, responsive, informative, and generally kind people. We had tons of preparation in advance of the wedding, we had an extremely smooth walk-through the day before the wedding (even though there was another wedding that night) and the wedding day itself was perfect from start to finish. They made everything so easy, were flexible with all of our desires, and made our special day perfect. We can't say enough about Rust - thanks Jackie, Paul, and the whole crew!!Sent on 05/26/2019

Rust is a MUST!
We cannot say enough good things about this venue. My husband and I got married here this time last year, and as we reflect back on our experience with Rust Manor and the staff there we have such wonderful memories. The big bonuses with this venue are how many things already come included. The large tent, tables and chairs and even unique pieces of décor that you can use for your day of. And if you’re dreaming of a garden wedding, the well kept grounds and historic house are the perfect romantic setting. Speaking of the house, the inside is also very well maintained and there is a large bridal suite that made getting ready fun with my five bridesmaids. There is also a grooms cottage that is practical for the guys. The venue, a part of NOVA Parks, does have it’s own catering company that you must use for your food and alcohol. While some might find this as a deterrent, we found this to be AMAZING. It really took the stress off of that area of planning. We had a Sunday brunch wedding and the food was so delicious! We were also able to do signature cocktails including mimosas and bloody marys. Overall, our experience with Rust Manor was such a positive one and we would highly recommend the venue and the staff there for your big day! Happy planning!Sent on 04/26/2020

Wonderful Wedding Reception Venue!
My husband and I first looked at Rust Manor House about a year before our wedding. It was only the second venue we checked out and we knew from the moment we saw the place and met with Paul that it was the place where we wanted to have our wedding reception! The staff at Rust kindly held our requested date for us while we worked out a date with our church and we were so happy everything worked out and we were able to book them. We did much of the follow-on coordination with another one of their coordinators (Jacqueline) and she was fantastic! She helped us with setting up our food tasting through Rust’s catering vendor (Great Blue Heron Catering), and assisted us with most of our day-of planning. We asked her endless questions during the month leading up to the wedding when we were starting to pull the final strings of planning together, and she answered each and every one promptly and thoroughly. The entire team at Rust was amazing to work with. They made everything easy and are an extremely professional and pleasant group of people. Not to mention the property and grounds at Rust are amazing!! Our guests were so impressed by the beauty and layout of the grounds, and made full use of the house, lawn/garden areas, and tent area. Rust truly is a great venue and we would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a wonderful reception venue!Sent on 06/09/2019
Gloria · Married on 10/06/2018
We had a specific type of venue in mind and the moment we saw Rust Manor, we knew it was exactly what we were looking for. From all the great spaces to get ready in- the Bridal Suite, Grooms Cottage and family seating area- to the multiple places for guests to congregate and talk, to the fantastic secret garden that was something out of a storybook, to the meticulously manicured lawns.. I could go on and on. The venue is effortlessly romantic and classic. We would also like to thank Jackie and Paul for making the whole process smooth from beginning to end- they are an incredible team, were a joy to work with and made sure that our whole experience was flawless. THANK YOU!Sent on 10/16/2018

This is a special place with wonderful people that make your event exactly what you want. We hosted my daughter's wedding on Saturday, September 22, 2018, and the atmosphere was everything my daughter wanted: Elegance within a natural setting, combined with a professional, friendly, and gracious staff. Communication was top notch, ideas/advice were readily provided, and I could tell they were genuinely happy to have us.
Great Blue Heron catering was also awesome! All of our guests were accommodated (allergens, vegetarian), and the food was scrumptious. In fact, I lost count as to how many people commented on how delicious the food was. GBH staff were equally attentive and professional.
It was a joy to work with Jackie and Paul at Rust Manor House... A lovely venue for your lovely event!

Best deal in DC!
If you want a beautiful venue and attentive and wonderful staff, I highly recommend Rust Manor! We knew from our first visit with Paul that this was the place we would have our wedding! The grounds are well kept and so beautiful, though what sold us was the knowledge, passion, and attentiveness of the staff. No question was too small, and we could always get an answer within hours. For everything you get and 5-star service, Rust Manor is the most affordable (and best deal!) in the DC metro area (trust me I crunched the numbers with 20 different venues….) PLUS they work with their own catering company Great Blue Heron Catering (which in itself has delicious food and great staff!). Wedding planning is not easy, though Paul and Jackie were so helpful!Sent on 10/31/2018

On our first visit to Rust Manor House, we knew we had found the venue for us. From the charming historic house, to the sprawling garden and large reception area, Rust Manor was the perfect place to facilitate our vision for an inside/outside wedding. Our guests socialized inside the house during the cocktail hour, and traveled outside to play lawn games (provided by Rust Manor as well)! When it was time for the reception, you walk across the beautiful grounds down into the reception tent. All the pathways outside are paved including a ramp down into the reception tent, which not only helped when walking down the aisle, but also made it easier for guests to move around -- our grandparents were especially appreciative. While the beauty and accessibility of the grounds speaks for itself, the hidden gems of Rust Manor are its staff. Paul and Jacquie, our POC’s throughout the process, as well as the rest of Rust Manor’s staff, were amazing. They were thoughtful in our conversations and meetings, creative in providing ideas and solutions during our indecisive moments, and incredibly responsive whenever we called or emailed with questions. We couldn’t recommend Rust Manor House more highly, and thank them for all of their support!Sent on 09/16/2018

We absolutely loved having our wedding here! The place is beautiful, and the staff is extremely accommodating. It was great working with Jackie and Paul.

Words cannot describe what an amazing experience we had working with the Rust Manor staff! We were blown away by all the venue had to offer - beautiful surroundings, an area to get ready, chairs, tables, lawn games, a permanent tent structure tent with AC IN THE TENT (it was one of the hottest days of the summer and you would have never known inside of the tent - we were cool and comfortable all night long!), fire pits, an incredible catering partnership and the list goes on and on. If you are looking to get married in the Northern Virginia area and want an all inclusive venue with outstanding staff there is no need for you to looking any further. Rust went above and beyond our expectations and provided us with a wedding experience we will never forget. We will be recommending Rust Manor to anyone and everyone that will listen!!Sent on 08/05/2018
Rust Manor House's reply:Kayla, thank you so much! We are so glad the AC in the tent did wonders! Your day was beautiful.

Rust Manor was absolutely the most perfect place to have our wedding! I can't say enough about the beauty of the house and the grounds, as well as the kindness and professionalism of the staff. Jackie, Paul, and other members of the Rust team were great at communicating throughout the entire process and were so helpful with suggestions and advice while planning. We loved the different options for ceremony locations and chose to get married in the garden area in front of the property's gorgeous tree. Cocktail hour was so much fun with lawn games and people mingling in and out of the house. The tent was perfect for our reception with a fire pit on the patio for s'mores. All of our guests raved about Rust Manor and how beautiful it was for our wedding day. Thank you for a perfect and memorable day!Sent on 05/31/2018

Amazing venue and a hidden gem in Leesburg. Our guests, who live in Leesburg, were not aware of the beautiful location set in a gorgeous nature preserve. An absolute must for any wedding. Jackie and Paul, are without a doubt a dynamic duo. They were always there to help and offer suggestions. With a last minute ceremony site change (thank you mother nature) they were able to calm my nerves and help create an intimate ceremony setting inside with 96 of our closets friends. They both were quick to respond with any questions we had and they remained patient even after I asked the same question for the 100th time. I put my trust in them and so glad I did. They helped create a one of a kind wedding which provided years of memories for us.
