Personal Details

Carolyn and Brian’s fall wedding at Lee Fendall House was full of lovely personal details that made the day memorable.

From flowers arranged by the bride and her family to handmade banners, this event was simply beautiful.

Portraits at Lee Fendall House

Blake Grimmer  took some fantastic portraits of one of the nicest couples to ever get married at Lee Fendall House. When you rent the Lee Fendall House you have the use of the house and gardens. The garden is beautiful and often the focus of events, so it’s great when photographers take full advantage of the house, too.

One of our fall weddings featured floral designs by Katie Martin, owner of Elegance and Simplicity. Check out some images of her work on her blog. Elegance and Simplicity’s designs looked amazing with the linens and tableware from Design Cuisine and DC Rental.

The lighting in the tent was magical after dark.

We’re looking forward to seeing the professional photos- they should be fantastic!

It is always so much fun to see the professional photos from Lee Fendall weddings. Stephen Gosling sent us a spectacular set of images from an October wedding he shot on the property.

Sara and Bill were the first to book for fall 2011 with us. Their  year of careful planning produced a personal, beautiful, and memorable wedding!

Stephen took an amazing variety of portraits at the Lee Fendall House and on the streets that surround the property.

Sara and Bill's dog Molly joined them for some photos just down the street at Olde Towne School for Dogs.

The weather cooperated for the pre-ceremony portraits but then behaved badly for the ceremony and reception. Thankfully Sara and Bill had made a rain plan with our staff and their day-of coordinator Karla, from Kelley Cannon Events.

The ceremony, originally intended to be in the garden, was held under the tent.

The couple opted to place a guest book table under the stairs in the passage.

Main Event Caterers worked incredibly hard, particularly when the rain changed to a downpour during the middle of the four-course dinner service. They are one of our favorite caterers for good reason- their food is always wonderful and their staff never ceases to amaze us!

More personal touches- each table was named after a type of beer. The groom chose beer to go with each of the four courses at dinner.

Congratulations Sara and Bill! We are honored you chose our site for your wedding.

Many thanks to Stephen Gosling for sharing these images with us!

Ceremonies in the Garden

A wedding ceremony in the Lee-Fendall garden.

The Lee-Fendall House hosts all manner of events, including wedding ceremonies like the one pictured above. Couples may have a ceremony followed by their reception in the garden.  We also host ceremonies or receptions only.  However, many couples opt for the ease if having both in one location. Our garden and house provide a beautiful backdrop for both!
