What a busy summer it’s been here at Historic Mankin Mansion! We’ve enjoyed our summer weddings and guests, and have appreciated the opportunity to meet more brides and wedding professionals at the bridal shows. As the season progressed however, we realized that we needed to bring in someone from the outside to assist with our marketing initiatives. With that, we are pleased to announce that Meghan Ely with OFD Consulting is now a part of the Historic Mankin Mansion family as Director of Marketing!
We have enjoyed working with Meghan in several capacities over the years. Meghan has been in the Richmond wedding industry for the last seven years, spending the majority of the time with the five star, five diamond Jefferson Hotel. In early 2009, she formed niche pr/marketing firm OFD Consulting, which services the wedding industry. Since then, she’s also become Managing Director of the Richmond Bridal Association, of which we are proud members. Meghan brings her marketing/pr know how, as well as her wedding industry insight, to the table and we couldn’t be more pleased. Meghan will have various responsibilities with the Mansion, including hosting our upcoming luncheon with the Greater Richmond Tourism Association.
So what’s next for Historic Mankin Mansion? Join us August 8 at the Richmond Bridal Showcase, where we will be meeting even more brides for the 2010-2011 season. We’ve also been working with some amazing, and generous photographers, to update our wedding portfolio. All the latest can be found on our Facebook fan page, so if you haven’t become a fan yet, be sure to do so today!
See you soon,
Paula & Martin Ramirez
