Richmond Wedding: Julie and Nik

March 24th, 2014

Mankin Mansion couples never cease to amaze us with all of the creative and unique ideas they plan for their wedding. Julie and Nik pulled out all the stops for their big day and we are thrilled to share their Richmond wedding with you!

One of our favorite details has to be the groomsmen’s superhero t-shirts (worn under their tuxedos) and their matching cuff links. Everyone in the bridal party was full of enthusiasm, which truly set the tone for Julie and Nik’s perfect day. Without a doubt, this darling duo had a lovely wedding and we couldn’t wait to share a few of our favorite photos. Just wait until you see how stunning Julie looks :)

Congraulations to Julie and Nik!

Many thanks to Seth Roberts Photography for sharing these beautiful photos with us!

See you soon,

Your Perfect Wedding Cocktail

March 3rd, 2014

Thinking about the perfect signature cocktail for your wedding?

We here at the Mansion love this sort of personal touch. Before making the leap, here are a few considerations to keep in mind:

  1. Theme: Allow the drink to introduce your guests to the theme for your wedding reception. Bubbles would complement a glam theme while a spiked lemonade or sweet tea cocktail would be perfect for a traditional southern fete.
  2. Season: You’ll want to select a drink that perfectly pairs with the weather as well. Consider cinnamon, cranberry, or apple pie flavors for the fall, or something light with a hint of citrus for the summer.
  3. History: Want to share your story with attendees? Say it with the cocktail you enjoyed on your first date together. Did you meet in college? Consider incorporating your school colors with a sugar rim, or fun straw.
  4. Go local: Show a little local love by selecting a craft beer or wine in your region. Virginia is home to a wealth of vineyards and breweries- your guests will no doubt appreciate the special touch.
  5. Glassware: It’s not just about the mixology- every great cocktail needs a fabulous glass. Think beyond the norm with vintage glasses and mason jars.

There are a number of ways to personalize your Big Day. A fun, creative beverage menu will no doubt delight your attendees. With the above considerations in mind, you are on your way to a memorable signature drink!
