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!
