A New Addition at the Mansion!

May 31st, 2013

We here at the Mansion love seeing the little, but important, details that make our brides’ wedding “theirs.” We are especially thrilled when we can assist with making these visions come to life so we are excited to share that we are now exclusively offering our couples the opportunity to arrive and depart in style!

That’s right – if you’ve booked (or are planning to book!) with Historic Mankin Mansion, you’ll now have the opportunity to rent a luxury vehicle for either your ceremony entrance or your Grand Exit….or both!

Please contact your Mansion wedding planner for more information.

Happy planning!

Real Richmond Wedding: Kara and Jared Con’t

May 27th, 2013

Last Monday, we featured a video from Kuhn’s Photography of Kara and Jared’s wedding and now we want to share a few of our favorites images with you!

Kara and Jared’s color palette was deep purple and the Pantone color of year emerald green. Fun was had by all with a photo booth in the gazebo, featuring a ton of silly props. The guests then danced the night away!

Thank you again to Kuhn’s Photography for sharing these photos with us and to Kara and Jared for allowing us to be a part of their special day!

See you soon,

Baby Day at the Mansion!

May 22nd, 2013

Those who have been to the Mansion as of late are already aware that we’ve had a bit of a “baby epidemic” on our hands in the last year as we welcome four adorable babies to the Mansion family. Believe it or not, three of them were actually born this past Spring and we just couldn’t be more thrilled for the moms.

This past week, we welcome all of the kiddos to the Mansion for an afternoon of.. well, snuggling! We also had the chance to take a bunch of photos to capture this fun day- can you believe we actually have a few with all of the little ones looking in the general direction of the camera? 🙂 For more too cute to pass up photos, please click HERE.

We couldn’t be more thrilled for Marylee, Jocelene, Gina and Meghan- and we’re excited to host all of their weddings around 2043 or so! 🙂

See You Soon,
