HMM in the News: Richmond Weddings Magazine

February 10th, 2014

We were honored when asked to host this exquisite inspiration shoot, and now we are excited to share that it was recently featured in the 2014 Richmond Weddings Magazine issue!

It was certainly a team effort to create this “Snow White’s Winter Wedding” stylized shoot. Elegant Party Plans designed this set from beginning to end and enlisted the help of Green Flamingo to create these lovely floral designs! All of the photos were perfectly captured by Shalese Danielle Photography.

Here are a few of our favorite photos of this whimsical, woodland shoot! We hope you love them as much as we do!

Three cheers to everyone who worked so hard to make this inspiration shoot such a successful. And, many thanks to our friends at Richmond Weddings for this feature!

See you soon,

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!
