Richmond Wedding: Tiffany and Lander

December 15th, 2014

Tiffany and Lander were such a lovely couple to host at the Mansion! The beautiful yellow hues of the floral arrangements brought a sunny vibe to their wedding and looked fabulous with complementing grey tones. The honey pot favors were a crowd favorite – they caused quite a buzz at the reception! These two are truly a match made in heaven and we can’t wait to share these photos with you.

Richmond Wedding: Jillian and Alec

December 1st, 2014

You may remember the wedding we featured a little while ago with a surprise flash mob to the tune of “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. Rodney the Ram also showed up to surprise these two VCU alumni! We just adore the contrast between the navy bridesmaids’ dresses and the pop of color from the bouquets. Here’s a closer look at that unforgettable night!

Our thanks to J&D Photography for sharing!

Wedding Lounges: Where Creativity and Comfort Meet

October 27th, 2014

We just love the latest trend of wedding lounges for your big day! Creating a one-of-a-kind wedding lounge area at your reception could help guests relax, and also provide a great photo backdrop for you and your sweetheart.  Relatively easy to piece together, lounges can be myriad, or single, depending on the amount of space available at your venue, whether indoor or outdoor.

The lounge will inspire your artistic freedom to blossom as you decide what will be included. Simply put, a lounge can include one couch, some chairs, a coffee table or chest, a bouquet of flowers, candles and some side tables.  It is a great opportunity to create a space that resonates with and adds to your wedding theme.

loungeideas01_theknot

Photos of the bride and groom could be set on the table for decoration, and for guests, props for photos could be located within the lounge area. It really could not be easier to customize your chic and trendy rest stop. If you do not have access to furniture, or are just not satisfied with it, you can always look into renting at shops such as Paisley & Jade, a local Richmond vintage eclectic furniture rental shop located in Scott’s Addition.

loungeideas09_theknot

As you are providing a space for your guests to relax and rest their feet, sip on a cocktail, and take it all in, you are also ensuring a happier day for you. Sure, it is your day, but it is shared with those you have invited, so why not appease both parties. While you are having the time of your life on the dance floor, your guests will be smiling in the lounge, wishing the wedding was a weekend affair!

See you soon,

Richmond Wedding: Heather and Bradley

October 20th, 2014

We guarantee you’ll be dreaming about today’s Richmond Wedding feature for days after seeing these gorgeous images, captured by 88 Love Stories!

Ever since radiant orchid was named Pantone’s 2014 color of the year, we couldn’t wait to see how our Historic Mankin Mansion couples made this shade of purple a part of their big day. From the bridesmaids’ dresses to the floral, Heather and Bradley flawlessly used this favorite hue in their color palette. We hope you enjoy these stunning moments from their wedding day as much as we do!

Thank you 88 Love Stories for sharing Heather and Bradley’s wedding with us!
