Erin and Brad's Swoonworthy Wedding at the Allandale Mansion in Kingsport Tennessee

I can without a doubt say that Mrs. Erin Hankins was my favorite bride of last season. It’s not just because her gorgeous wedding at the Allandale Mansion in Kingsport Tennessee was featured in this seasons Southern Living Weddings but also because she’s been one of my closest friends since I moved to the Blowing Rock, NC area.

Seriously, I have never ever ever ever seen a bride work so hard on planning her “Big Day”. Just about everything you see in these pictures was made/gathered by hand. It just goes to show that if you have a year long engagement, a creative bride, a graphic designer groom, a strong focus and a world class photographer like Jennie Andrews, you too can create your own picture perfect dream wedding from scratch!

Enjoy…
