Ceremony Decor Trends!

October 21st, 2013

Today we are excited to share some trending décor ideas that will dress up the wedding ceremony! With the help of Pinterest, we have found a few ideas and themes:

Lace has recently been making numerous appearances in wedding ceremonies. As you can see in this photo, it can be used to create a unique backdrop!

HMM SO 1

Another great option to consider when choosing décor for the ceremony is the use of ribbons and garland. In this example the ribbons and garland create an intimate setting for the happy couple to exchange their vows.

HMM SO 2

Those who like to think outside the box may like the idea of hosting an unusual ceremony space such as this example. Change things up by creating a unique space like this for guests to be seated on and around the alter area.

HMM SO 3

For anyone who loves to include their color scheme in the ceremony, this next trend might appeal to them. The ombre effect is something that has taken off in the wedding industry and we can see why with this beautiful example!

HMM SO 4

Having a unique backdrop to exchange vows in front of is another trend that will certainly create a romantic vibe. With this photo you can see many options that work such as draped curtains, interesting use of floral arrangements and woodwork.

HMM SO 5

Knowing what is trendy in the wedding world is always useful when planning the big day! We hope that these trends mentioned above gave some helpful inspiration to vamp up the ceremony decor.

See You Soon,

Mad Hatter Richmond Wedding Inspiration

August 15th, 2013

Like most weddings, the world of the Mad Hatter is filled with whimsy, wonder and just a pinch of magic. This world recently came to life at the Mansion during IYQ Photography’s bridal inspiration shoot. Our life-size chessboard was perfect for the theme and the model’s tea-length dress made us swoon. Enter this whimsical world while taking a look at some of the pictures from the day.

Real Richmond Wedding: Yvonne and Sasha

August 12th, 2013

Yvonne and Sasha’s wedding at the Mansion combined two different cultures into one beautiful event. The bride glowed in her wedding gown but what we really loved was the red stunner she changed into during the reception. The custom chuppah, which the couple married under, was also a Mansion favorite- just stunning!

Seth Roberts Photography did an amazing job capturing every detail of this wedding. What we really love is how each picture, no matter how simple, tells a story. A story about two different people coming together to create a new culture of their own.

Enjoy!

See You Soon,
