Real Richmond Weddings: Megan and Donovan

July 10th, 2013

Here at Historic Mankin Mansion, we pride ourselves on having the most beautiful and unique weddings in Richmond. Our recent wedding of Megan and Donovan is a perfect example of this. Mason jars and simple centerpieces created a classic and feel while candy stations and funky photo booth props kept this wedding feeling current and fun. Our favorite part of the day would have to be the joy of the bride and groom that is evident in every single picture because that is what weddings are really about.

All of the magic and excitement of the day was flawlessly captured by Chris Fessler Photography. His beautiful pictures illustrated this couples unique decorative choices and one-of-a-kind spirit because of this; his photographs of the event are truly a joy to revisit. Take a closer look at more of them here.

See you soon,
