New Wedding Feature- Our SB&G Winter/Spring Cover Girl!

Jenna Germano not only makes a beautiful cover girl for the Southern Bride & Groom 2011 winter/spring magazine, but her engagement story is one of the most touching that I have heard. Her classic-chic wedding to her husband, Brian, took place at the beautiful Prestonwood Country Club, and they used an assortment of other fabulous SB&G vendors in their wedding including Victorian Rose Bridals for the bridal gown, bridesmaids dresses and flower girl dress, The English Garden florist, The Green Kangaroo wedding invitations, Bernard’s Formalwear, Priscilla of Boston jewelry from the new Cameron Village store, and of course Swank Photo Studio (Stacy Borelli) for photography.

SB&G 2011 Magazine is Out!

Southern Bride & Groom is thrilled to announce that our 2011 magazine is officially released, and it just might be the most beautiful edition in our 24 years. Not only that, but there are more magazines this year than ever before. Due to a very successful distribution in 2010 and our high demand for 2011, we have increased our magazine count to 16,000!

Congratulations to SB&G’s winter/spring cover photographer, Stacy Borelli of Swank Photo Studio!

We’ll be distributing over the next week or two, but we are hitting up the hottest distribution points first- such as Belk, and all of the bridal shops!
