Today, we’re back with our Best of 2011 series, where we get to revisit some of our favorite weddings from last season. Today, we’re thrilled to share the wedding of Elizabeth and Patrick!
As Elizabeth told us-
When I started the wedding planning process, I had a very general idea of what I wanted. I had dreamt of something outside, something elegant, fun and different. I knew I wanted something that was not “cookie cutter. On a whim and a suggestion from a friend we decided to check out Historic Mankin Mansion. The first day we showed up for our initial meeting, I knew I had found the dream place for my wedding.
Upon meeting Martin and Paula, we instantly felt comfortable and we knew this would be a perfect match. We loved everything about the planning of our wedding to our wedding day. What I appreciated the most was that Mary-Catherine took care of everything for us and I never felt stressed or anxious about anything. We were able to enjoy every minute of our wedding day. From the music that got everyone up and dancing to the ease of walking between our ceremony to our cocktail hour to our reception, we could not have asked for a better day.
Our friends and family are still talking about the great time that they had at our wedding and how impressed and surprised they were with everything. Historic Mankin Mansion was truly the something different, the something elegant and the something fun we were looking for.
We could agree more with Elizabeth- we knew she was the perfect fit when we met her and started diving into her wedding planning!
Now remember-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 Elizabeth and Patrick’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, visit our Facebook page and comment under the Facebook post in which we share this fabulous feature.
