Winter has a matchless grace about it that speaks in hushed song. When temperatures change and frost begins to blanket our mornings, suddenly the world transforms into a blissfully chilled quietude that only the coldest months can bring. It’s the season where we thaw our mitts by busily crackling fires, drink in the sweet warmth of piping hot beverages, and cozy close to our favorite loved ones with the simple excuse of a single blanket—it is a kind of heavenly bliss, love’s snowy playground, where the spark between two people could melt the most frozen of hearts! What better time could one find to marry their soulmate? We needn’t ask Matthew & Katherine—theirs is a union which captures every subtle elegance of these beautifully wintry months!
A word from photographer, Amanda Berube:
“This heavenly black tie winter wedding is truly what dreams are made of! The stunning and historic, Hills and Dales Estate, paired beautifully with the lush spruce greenery accents and gorgeous seasonal color platte of creams, icy whites and soft power blue hues. The vision of this beautiful winter wonderland was carefully curated by Patti of P. Hasting Design and photographed by Amanda Berube of Amanda Berube Photography. The amazing talents of Jamie Keating Culinary kept the icy waterfall of champagne following, while family and friends celebrated and danced the frosty night away. Needless to say, this southern December wedding is any winter brides fantasy.”
