The Old Manassas Courthouse

The city of Manassas originated in 1852 at the junction of the Manassas Gap and the Orange & Alexandria Railroads. This Romanesque Revival courthouse was designed by James C. Teague and Philip T. Marye, of Norfolk and Newport News. It was completed in 1893 and served the county until 1984 when a new courthouse was built nearby.

  15. Those cakes are to die for…and the roses too. So beautiful. Dianne

    I love photography. A few years ago, I worked for a photography studio doing videography. One of my favorite venues was (and still is) weddings. I enjoyed the photos here. Very pretty.

    Love the wedding portrait highlighting the grooom. You don’t see that much!

  18. David says:

    At least there’s a lot of vendors to choose from.

    More importantly, cookies and cake, a must for any vendor fair. :)

    It was great to see you! It was a wonderful turn out!!!!!

  20. There is going to be so much happiness and excitement, when you open! Love that pink cake, with pink flowers and brown stem.
