Behind the SB&G 2019 Summer Fall Cover

Southern Bride and Groom Magazine 2019 Summer Fall Cover Launch

To say we’re feeling giddy today is an understatement. We are thrilled to reveal our Southern Bride & Groom magazine 2019 summer-fall cover.

Each year, we choose two cover images. Both are by preferred Southern Bride & Groom photographers based in NC. This is one of our favorite SB&G traditions, as it gives us the chance to feature two photographers, and seasonal vibes. This summer-fall cover image is from the Southern Bride and Groom magazine 2019 fashion shoot.

Each year, the Southern Bride & Groom fashion shoot brings together some of the top wedding vendors in the Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill region. We can’t wait to share the full fashion shoot with you soon, but today we will give you a run down of the fabulous vendors that are behind this cover photo.

Get the Look from Alexia’s, one of the Best Raleigh Bridal Boutiques

The Southern Bride & Groom 2019 summer-fall cover image features gowns from Alexia’s. Located off of Glenwood Ave, Alexia’s has been the top bridal boutique carrying couture wedding dresses in Raleigh for the past 15 years. The bride wears a modern and minimalist off-the-shoulder Lela Rose gown. The bridesmaids are in pastel blue Monique Lhuillier bridesmaids dresses – one with a deep V neck, and the other with a halter neck in a lovely floral print.

Get Styled by Top Raleigh Wedding Hair and Makeup Artists, with the Finest Jewelry

One of the unique things about the Southern Bride & Groom fashion shoot as that we bring together multiple Raleigh wedding hair and makeup artists. We have three models on site and each one needs refreshed looks between each shot. So three of the top local wedding stylists had a blast styling models all under one roof – Mina’s Studio, Makeup for Your Day, and Wedding Hair by Liz. The model that each artist styled is noted above. To top off the wedding looks, stylists from Bailey’s Fine Jewelry attended the shoot, armed with a plethora of exquisite jewels.

Wedding Day Details by Raleigh Florist Watered Garden

The photo shoot took place at The Bradford, a stunning French country styled wedding venue outside of Raleigh. One of the most respected Raleigh wedding florists, Watered Garden, created the gorgeous blush bouquets that the bride and her maids carry. They also draped a rose-laden garland across the fireplace, adding a touch of elegance for our shoot backdrop.
