The holiday week continues with this gorgeous winter wonderland wedding from the very talented Andie Freeman Photography. This wedding is very special and has warmed our hearts with its very moving love story. This beautiful couple’s love is so strong, it radiates from each and every image. I was so enamored by their incredible love, I almost missed out on all the amazing lovely winter wedding details. This wedding is cozy, intimate, and so pretty! Winter + Rustic + Stunning Couple= Winter Wonderland Dream. I think I have fallen in love with winter, and it is all due to the exquisite details of this Southern wedding. I have to admit, I have browsed through these images more than once, so make sure to set some time aside for this one. Happy Winter!

I was amazingly touched when I was told the story of Alison and Brandon by venue owner, Debbie Benson. Brandon, who was diagnosed with terminal melanoma, was to wed his fiance Alison. They were married at an outdoor barn wedding with beautiful quilts and stunning winter wonderland country accents. Although we almost froze to death that day (40 degrees!), it was so wonderful to be a part of the culmination of their love story. Sadly, only a few months after their marriage, Brandon passed away with Alison by his side. All services by vendors were donated or provided at cost. Brandon decided to grow his beard after his cancer treatment made him lose all of this hair.
Alison wanted a winter wonderland rustic wedding so venue owner, Debbie Benson, came together with myself and Event Planner, Cissy Wood to put together a beautiful winter wedding. There were pinecones and teal glitter balls in beautiful lanterns. There were snowflakes hanging from the ceiling. There was an extremely popular hot chocolate bar. And because of the cold, there were quilts for all of the guests to wrap up in. Even though it was bitterly cold, Brandon and Alison truly made the best out of their special day. Alison stated recently that she loves Brandon and misses him every day.
