SB&G Launches Summer/Fall Cover and Shares the cover couple’s story!

Southern Bride & Groom magazine is happy to launch our summer/fall cover this month. Every year, brides and local industry wedding professionals look forward to SB&G’s cover picks, because they are often real brides and grooms from NC’s Triangle Area.

This cover couple is Jill and Dave Padilla, who were married in Raleigh last fall. The moment was captured by Stacy Borelli of Swank Photo Studio as the newlyweds rode from their wedding ceremony to their reception at Solas on the back of Jill’s father’s 1964 cadillac.

Jill is seen in the cover image wearing a stunning bridal gown from Alexia’s Bridal Boutique with a gorgeous bouquet by Fresh Affairs. Her hair was done by Bella Trio and her jewelry is from Bel Canto Designs. Dave wears a tuxedo from Bernard’s Formalwear.

Congrats to Stacy of Swank Photo Studio for being the 2012 Summer/Fall cover photographer!
