Ten Years in the Making – Historic Mankin Mansion Celebrates Milestone

In 2004, Paula and Martin Ramirez left their California roots and purchased Historic Mankin Mansion, a hidden gem located just minutes from Downtown Richmond that was in mere ruins when they came upon it. After two years of thoughtful and extensive renovation, they restored the one hundred year-old estate, transforming it into the prestigious wedding resort it is known for today.

“It seems like just yesterday we were hosting our very first event, welcoming local wedding professionals into our home,” shares Martin. “Since that time, we have had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of unforgettable events.”

Together with their seasoned wedding planning team, Paula and Martin provide full service event planning for all their wedding clients. One Day Wedding or Weekend Wedding Packages are available at the estate, with the latter offering guests the comfort of overnight stays for a destination-style celebration.

“Above all, we have had the joy of meeting and becoming friends with so many wonderful people!” says Paula. “Today, we thank those who have crossed our paths for their support as they continue this journey with us.”


Historic Mankin Mansion is listed on the National and State Registrar of Historic Landmarks. More recently, it has been named Virginia Living’s 2014 “Top Wedding Vendor,” WeddingWire’s 2014 Couple’s Choice Award, Style Me Pretty’s 2014 Little Black Book Member, The Knot’s 2013 pick for Best of Weddings, and has been honored as one of Richmond’s “Best Hidden Gems” by Style Weekly.  You might also recognize Historic Mankin Mansion as the site of one of our styled shoots!
