A Late Summer Wedding at Historic Mankin Mansion

fairytale wedding inspirationThis romantic Virginia wedding makes our hearts flutter.  The wedding cake is pink roses upon gilded white ruffles.  The soft green and pink floral displays inside the reception tent are some of the prettiest things we’ve laid eyes on, and the rustic bulb lighting strung outside Historic Mankin Mansion makes this wedding true Southern bliss.  The bride, Kristy, shared with us her #1 tip for planning a wedding: “Get a good wedding coordinator!  Marylee at Mankin was a lifesaver for me.  Whenever I started to get worried or stressed, she always made me feel better.  There are so many things you have to think about when planning a wedding that you never know about until you are in the process of planning.”  Since we know plenty of wedding planners that are sweet as pie, we can’t agree with her advice more!
