Richmond Wedding by Marta Locklear
February 1, 2012
I planned on gushing about the gorgeous peach + steel grey combo woven throughout this affair because honestly, it's drop dead gorgeous and such a lovely addition to the backdrop of the Historic Mankin Mansion. But my words left me the very second I spotted the Bride and my thoughts immediately turned into a gush fest about the leading lady and her veil. So pretty. SO, SO WILDLY PRETTY and all captured beautifully by Marta Locklear. See the color combo that won our hearts and the Bride that stole the show right here.

From Marta of Marta Locklear... Megan and Brandon's wedding was absolutely stunning and a perfect infusion of both of them. Pure style with the graphite gray and soft peach tones throughout, and perfect hints of Brandon's "Rocker" personality with surprise checkered Vans and steel gray glittered shoes for Megan. We started the day with a first look session to make the most of the gorgeous Historic Mankin Mansion grounds and daylight, and then wandered into a perfect sunset ceremony. The ceremony was lined with flower-filled mason jar vases on shepherds hooks in a sea of white chairs. Megan practically floated down the aisle with her dad while the sunlight lit her face under her blusher veil. During the ceremony, Megan and Brandon each wrote a letter to each other explaining why they loved each other and sealed and locked them into a vintage wine box to be read on their five-year anniversary. During cocktail hour, while the couple enjoyed a few moments together in the Carriage House the guests mingled under peach and gray paper lanterns and string lights while sipping their drinks from striped straws. The grounds had large chess boards for entertainment. For the reception, an infusion of graphite gray table cloths, peach cloth napkins, gold rimmed chargers and white and peach florals definitely set the tone for this wedding day. The cake was absolutely amazing and even studded with jewels! The guests enjoyed a full dessert table with take-away boxes, a personal slideshow from the best man, a fully-catered dinner and lots of dancing! The details were amazing!
