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!
