Richmond Wedding: Tiffany and Lander

December 15th, 2014

Tiffany and Lander were such a lovely couple to host at the Mansion! The beautiful yellow hues of the floral arrangements brought a sunny vibe to their wedding and looked fabulous with complementing grey tones. The honey pot favors were a crowd favorite – they caused quite a buzz at the reception! These two are truly a match made in heaven and we can’t wait to share these photos with you.

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!
