Richmond Wedding: Jillian and Alec

December 1st, 2014

You may remember the wedding we featured a little while ago with a surprise flash mob to the tune of “Happy” by Pharrell Williams. Rodney the Ram also showed up to surprise these two VCU alumni! We just adore the contrast between the navy bridesmaids’ dresses and the pop of color from the bouquets. Here’s a closer look at that unforgettable night!

Our thanks to J&D Photography for sharing!

Richmond Wedding: Jillian and Alec

September 3rd, 2014

Today’s Richmond wedding is a thrilling twist on our usual Mankin Mansion wedding feature! After their first dance as Mr. and Mrs., Jillian and Alec were surprised by their wedding guests with a flash mob to Happy by Pharrell Williams. What started out a few guests, grew into 50 people having a ball on the dance floor.

The most exciting part of this flash mob had to be when Virginia Commonwealth University’s mascot, Rodney the Ram, made a guest appearance during the song to surprise the bride and groom who are also VCU alumni! We were so happy to host Jillian and Alec and we know you’ll enjoy this short video of their reception flash mob.
