Today, we’re thrilled to be starting off our Best of 2011 series, where we get to revisit some of our favorite weddings from last season. As you may remember from our recent post, we’re changing things up a bit this year. We asked bride’s to share not only their photos but a bit about their Big Day as well.
Up first, we’re excited to share Blair and Nick’s wedding from this past summer. We dare say that Blair likes wedding blogs as much as we do and did a wonderful job add incorporating special touches into her wedding day. A bit more from Blair-
Our wedding day, July 1st, 2011, was a beautifully sunny and an uncharacteristically cool summer day, which was perfect for our outdoor wedding and celebration. When I first broached the subject of an outdoor wedding in Virginia’s July climate, my fiance looked at me as if I were crazy, but all turned out for the best. Family and friends traveled from all over to help celebrate our special day and the beginning of our lives together. The vendors we chose to help assist us in creating our special day could not have possibly done a better job. Our day was filled with nothing but love and happiness, and luckily, not an ounce of stress!
This year’s blog series is going to be a bit different as each wedding will be featured on the Historic Mankin Mansion Blog and the top three posts with the most blog and Facebook comments will be selected as finalists. Each wedding will receive one more feature and the one with the most Facebook and blog comments by the deadline will be the winner! This year, we’re taking it up a notch as we will be hosting a contest along with it for a complimentary overnight room stay at the Mansion, as well as a gift certificate to one of Paula and Martin’s favorite restaurants in town.
So do you just adore Blair and Nick’s wedding and want them to win? Simply comment on this blog post and let us know why you love this wedding so much. If you’d like to score an extra point for the couple if you visit our Facebook page and comment under the Facebook post in which we share this fabulous feature.
Thanks Blair and Nick for revisiting your Historic Mankin Mansion Wedding Day with us!
See You Soon,
