Richmond Wedding: Leigh and Greg (Part One)

December 16th, 2013

Saying “I do” never looked more stunning as it did during Leigh and Greg’s wedding here at  Historic Mankin Mansion! This beautiful couple chose a coral color palette that was perfect for their June nuptials. We couldn’t pick just a few of our favorite photos from their big day, which is why we decided to make their Richmond Wedding feature two parts!

We hope you enjoyed these photos as much as we did! Stay tuned for more of Leigh and Greg’s wedding day celebration later this week!

See you soon,

If you’re tying the knot this winter then allow us to suggest incorporating one of the most dynamic trends of year: gold!

This timeless metallic can be used from ceremony to reception as an accent color in your décor or as the central theme of your wedding day. With all credit due to Pinterest, here are a few suggestions on pairing gold in your big day!

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,

~Paula & Martin Ramirez

Real Richmond Wedding: Katie and David!

July 4th, 2012

We here at the Mansion love a wedding full of whimsical details and love and Katie and David’s wedding had just that!

We knew this wedding was sure to be a show stopper when the bride told us her colors would be orange and blue. They incorporated the color combination throughout the wedding with little touches with the bride’s shoes, bowties, and place.

Grant and Deb Photographers captured the day of festivities check out their beautiful work below and also on their blog.

We would like to thank the couple for allowing us to be a part of their big day as well as Grant and Deb Photographers for sharing these gorgeous images!

 

See you soon,
