‘True Alabama Couple’ Photo Contest Winners

Congratulations to the winners of our ‘True Alabama Couple’ Photo Contest! Last month, we asked our Facebook fans to submit a photo that shows their love for each other as a couple as well as our great state of Alabama. We saw some beautiful entries and enjoyed the absolutely adorable proposal stories, but only the Top 3 ¬†with the most votes were presented to our editorial team to make the final decision. Now we are proud to announce our winners, whose weddings will all be featured on the AWM website with the release of our new issue in 2014! Drumroll please . . .

Our Grand Prize winners, Mandy and John, have won a one-page Real Wedding feature in our 2014 issue! There image evoked undeniable emotion that captured our eye immediately. The landscape and barn in the background complete the look that totally captures the idea of a true Alabama couple. We are thrilled to share the details of their wedding in the magazine and hope you are inspired by their Southern soiree. Congratulations Mandy and John!

First Place winners, Sarah and Brett, are very fortunate to work with the talented Main Street Productions on a Love Story video that will share their story of meeting, falling in love and starting their life together. We think this is especially perfect because Sarah and Brett have an interesting story that seems nothing short of fate. Sometimes, two people really are just meant to be together! Once it is complete, we can’t wait to share this Love Story video, which is a unique piece that can be shown at a rehearsal dinner, shared on social media and kept for years to relive the reason why you first fell in love over and over again.

Thank you again to all our contestants as well as everyone that voted. We love getting to interact with our readers and sharing your stories. In fact, we want to share more of your stories! We only have so much space in the magazine for Real Weddings, but the AWM Blog has plenty of room to spare. That’s right, we are now opening the blog for submitting your weddings to be featured on our website. We will be posting 2-4 weddings each month that we think would be great inspiration for all Southern brides. For more information about how to submit a wedding, see all the details here.
