Arielle and Scott were married at Historic Mankin Mansion in Richmond, Va. on April 26. “Mankin Mansion is a beautiful wedding site that embodies old world charm,” Arielle said. “The trees and courtyard were lit with cast iron lanterns, and I invited my guests to enjoy the setting by renting vintage couches for lounging.” The bride wore a sweetheart lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown with a keyhole back, accessorized with a floor-length veil, while the groom wore a three-piece gray suit, accessorized with a striped tie. Bridesmaids wore short chiffon dresses in dusty shale and graphite gray hues and carried bouquets of roses, hydrangeas, and Queen Anne’s lace. “The weather for our wedding was something out of a fairytale,” she said. “It was low 80s and mostly sunny. The grounds were covered in wisteria, a purple flowering vine that puts off such a calming scent that carried throughout the entire evening.” After the exchanging of vows and rings, the newlyweds recessed down the aisle as guests threw lavender. “I remember thinking how happy we were to be surrounded by all of the people, who have loved and supported us throughout the years,” Arielle said. The reception followed underneath a pole tent, low lit with crystal chandeliers. Tables were decorated with white linens, lace doilies, gold charger plates, vintage teacups, and mix ‘n’ matched vase and vessel centerpieces. “I spent my days off visiting thrift shops buying mismatched china, silver antiques, and unique glass vases,” she said. “I became enamored by all of the stories behind each item we collected.” There was also a display of family photos too! “We felt that it was important to blend the past with our future because it gave us a sense of pride for the families we came from,” Arielle said. They performed their first dance to “Cruisin'” by D’Angelo, posed in the photo booth with fun props, cut a five-tiered fondant cake, and exited at the end of the night amongst a sea of sparklers.
