We posted this video under Jenny and Tyler's featured wedding post, but we love it so much we wanted it to have it's own permanent spot on the blog!

Featured Wedding: Jen and Ryan 6/8/13

Jen and Ryan first toured the Mansion during our 2012 Open Air Market (this year scheduled for August 25!) with their sweet Great Dane puppy.  We are a dog-friendly establishment so we were happy to have them, and their pup, take a look around.  Obviously they loved it because the following month were back to book their wedding!  Fast forward about 9 months, the wedding day arrived.  It was a beautiful June day.  The mansion was ripe with a lush green landscape and the sun was shining.  Grand Gourmet prepared a scrumptious feast, Jen's mother made the cakes (yes, cakes), and Cindy Casuyon created beautiful floral arrangements.  Sometimes our staff likes to jump in and lend a helping hand, and our Event Manager Anne was happy to do that to bring Jen's vision to life.  It all came out beautifully, don't you think?

Jen arrived early to get dressed upstairs in our bridal suite

While Ryan was preparing for the big day with his groomsmen at the hotel

The ceremony was held on the patio overlooking the vista

As it is with photography, and photographers, there are times we find ourselves seeing the mansion in a whole different light.  Dan, from Some Guy Photography,and Kevin 11 took some pretty fantastic and unique images with the couple and wedding party out on the vista.

Pictures were followed by the first dance, which took place on the patio.

After dinner, more dancing and merriment to celebrate Jen and Ryan!

And finally, we love this picture of Jen and Ryan dancing in the Loggia.

Congratulations you two!  Thank you for choosing the mansion to host your wedding. It was a pleasure having you here. We wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Featured Wedding - Kelly and Robert 5/18/13

We love hosting spring weddings here!  The mansion comes to life with budding greens and pink magnolias.  It is magical.  You know what else was magical?  Kelly and Robert's wedding.  They were married here on a Saturday in May and Kelly thoughtfully selected colors that reflected the beauty of springtime.  We loved her attention to detail; from the bridesmaid dresses that matched the pink magnolias to the birdcage envelope holder.  David Alan catering planned a delicious dinner, Kim's Cottage Confections created a stunning cake and It's so Ranonculus provided beautiful flower arrangements that complemented the colors of the season.

While the Vista was being set up for the ceremony, Kelly was able to watch from above on the balcony.  
What a beautiful bride she was!

But before Kelly was to walk down the isle, she and her groom did a "first look" from the staircase leading into the foyer.

Followed by couple and bridal party photos

Finally, it was time to walk down the isle.

And then eat, drink and be merry!

Congratulations to Kelly and Robert!  It was a pleasure hosting your wedding at the mansion and we wish you all the best in the years to come.
