This was the first time we’ve been able to do a Historic Martin Mansion wedding – and it did not disappoint!

From the moment you arrive at this venue (which was built circa 1909), an air of elegance is everywhere.

From the gorgeous antique furniture lovingly placed in the house, to the crystal champagne flutes.

It’s hard not to imagine all the beautiful things that the walls of the house have seen since being built.

And can we just talk about the handsome butler who greets guest at the door with a tray of champagne?!

This mansion in a beautiful historic neighborhood in Norfolk is what wedding dreams are made of!

Enjoy this beautiful post sharing photos from Kelsey and Jeff’s beautiful day!

Historic Martin Mansion Wedding

Kelsey and Jeff initially had a beautiful beach wedding.

So for them, getting all dressed up again, was a totally different experience.

In the best way possible!

Since the initial wedding jitters were already gone, they could really focus on laughing together, snuggling up, and really just loving each other.

Plus they brought their sweet dog – what’s not to love about that?!

He was a bundle of energy, but after Jeff let him run around for a few minutes, he was so calm and relaxed.


Kelsey and Jeff, thank you for allowing Eric and I to be a tiny part of your love story.

We had so much fun getting to know you guys and your sweet puppy.

I know that the future has nothing but amazing things for y’all, and we can’t wait to see what’s next in your love story.
