We are so pleased to release the behind-the-scenes video by Life Stage Films. This video tribute is a look inside of what goes into the special details that really make a wedding unique to a couple. We strive to create details in our style shoots to inspire couples and help them find their ideal wedding look! A big thanks to the Matt Davis, owner of LSF, for hanging out during our shoot and his team for putting together this special video!
Our sweet couple, Becca Jane and Todd Cody (now Mr. and Mrs!) were the winners of our 25th Anniversary Photoshoot Contest. They married in June 2012 in Chapel Hill, and used a slew of SB&G vendors to make their big day special & unique. The newlyweds reside in Washington, DC, but drove down for this opportunity to relive their wedding day!
After Hurricane Sandy forced us to reschedule, SB&G had a blast doing this shoot on a warm and sunny November afternoon. Our team, including coordination by Erin McLean Events, brought together an elegant rustic theme to highlight our venue, Het Landhuis — a fabulous country estate with a barn and event space! We combined this year’s popular neutral shades with rusty reds and fresh verdant hues, and The English Garden florist arranged a wedding scene with their own decor doors and floral wreaths in Het Landhuis‘ designated ceremony location. We set a formal table in the banquet room of the romantic barn that boasts Dutch influence in its architecture and detailing.
Now, enjoy these photos from the shoot, shot by Cyn Kain Photography (some of these pics can also be seen in SB&G 2013). And y’all, get ready to fall in love, this shoot is amazing! SB&G would like to extend a special thank you to the rest of the team who made this shoot possible: Charlottes, Inc./Jewelry; Party Reflections/Chairs, Linens, China, Glassware; Traditions by Anna/Bridal Gown; Savvi Formalwear/Groom’s Suit; Beauty & The Bull Spa/Hair & Makeup; and Raleigh Cake Pops/Cake Pop Favors.
Bailey and Jason met as undergrads in college through a mutual friend. When Jason popped the question with a Bailey Box, Bailey couldn’t refuse! This sweet couple wed at The Sutherland Estate & Gardens on June 16, 2012. A preppy Southern color palette of navy blue, deep fuchsia and bright green set the stage for Bailey and Jason’s big day, and the photography by f8 Photo Studios is absolutely stunning!
The couple used many SB&G vendors to make their day special, including: The Sutherland, Catering Works, f8 Photo Studios, Classic Party Rentals, and Island Sound & Video.
Here’s a sneak peek at some of Bailey and Jason’s gorgeous wedding day, but be sure to check out the full story (with more beautiful photos!) on the Bailey & Jason Real Wedding page!
We commemorated the occasion with a Silver Style Shoot, set at The Siena Hotel in Chapel Hill. The shoot, photographed by f8 Photo Studios, will appear in Southern Bride & Groom’s 2013 edition, which releases mid-December and will be free to brides and available at locations throughout the Triangle Area, as well as to order online. In addition to the commemorative spread in the magazine, f8 in Motion was onsite to film the shoot, and created this beautiful behind-the-scenes tribute video.
Spheres of blossoms designed by Fresh Affairs bubble up around a stunning hand-painted silver cake custom-created by Sugarland, and continue a cascade that spills into a pool of petals. Our bride sparkles in a glamorous gown from Lana Addison Bridal. Its silver and crystal embellishments add to the theme. Our team also included Sally Oakley Personalized Wedding Planning, Charlotte’s, Party Reflections, Douglas Carroll Salon & Spa, and Paper Cafe.
Both The Siena Hotel and Douglas Carroll Salon and Spa are also celebrating their 25th anniversaries, so a big congratulations to them as well!
And now, please enjoy the premiere of our Silver Anniversary Tribute Video by f8 in Motion!
Moving the shoot turned out to be a great choice, because yesterday was an absolutely perfect autumn day. The air was cool and crisp, but the warm sun made it quite pleasant outside. The beautiful green, yellow and orange colors still gracing us with their presence out in the countryside of Pittsboro NC also helped – these are colors that will probably last only the rest of this week. So we feel quite lucky with how everything turned out!
The winners of our SB&G 25th Anniversary Photoshoot Contest, Becca Jane and Todd, drove down from Washington DC to participate in the shoot, and they made absolutely beautiful models. This sweet couple had a beautiful reception at The Carolina Inn this June.
We planned the shoot at the beautiful Pittsboro wedding venue, Het Landhuis, a beautiful rustic venue with elegant Dutch influences. We enjoyed living the country life out there for the day, and made friends with their dogs, cats, horses and goats!
We worked with team of talented SB&G vendors to plan our shoot’s theme, including Erin McLean Events, English Garden Florist, Cyn Kain Photography, and Life Stage Films. Products and additional support was from Party Reflections, Charlotte’s, Savvi Formalwear, Traditions by Anna, Beauty & the Bull Spa and Raleigh Cake Pops.
We don’t want to spoil the shoot, but here are a few teaser photos. The real deal will appear in Southern Bride & Groom’s 2013 issue, which will be released in December.
Watch their 2012 demo reel, and learn about the amazing cause that they are supporting and how YOU can help!
The Brooklyn Arts Center in Wilmington, NC is having its semi-annual wedding show on August 12.

Located near the Cape Fear River in downtown Wilmington, BAC is a gorgeous, historic church, built in 1888, that has been spectacularly refurbished to accommodate weddings, receptions, and other important events.
Maria Scheel Invitations & More created glitzy custom invitations that were sent to the bride and her guests. The English Garden Florist created wall mod-chic wall decor and bowling ball topiaries. Sparians served signature pink cocktails, and heavy hors d’oeuvres, and Gigi’s Cupcakes provided cupcakes that looked like actual bowling balls! Island Sound enhanced the ambiance with special lighting, and entertained the group of gals with 60′s mod live music. We also played old episodes of “Laverne & Shirley” on the Sparians’ TV screens to add to the theme!
F8 Photo Studios photographed the event, which was featured in SB&G 2012 on pages 70-71. Their sister video company, F8 in Motion, filmed the special occasion, and we’re happy to share that video with you here. Enjoy!
Lauren and Zach Heath were married on October 29, 2011. Congrats!
Island Sound & Video is celebrating 25 years of great events in 2012 with a new look, an updated website, special packages, and several special events throughout the year.
Founded in upstate New York in 1987 to service Weddings, Mitzvahs, bars and clubs, Peter Krumenacker quickly set Island Sound apart from the competition with meticulous preparation and unmatched reliability. Relocating to the Triangle area in 1999, Peter soon built a team of accomplished DJ’s from different backgrounds and expanded Island Sound’s services to include corporate events, team building, equipment rentals, lighting and multimedia services.
”In 25 years we’ve learned that nothing beats great word of mouth,” said founder Peter Krumenacker. “Our clients constantly refer us to their friends and family, and we’re humbled to have had the opportunity to be a part of so many truly special events. We’re also grateful that so many wedding vendors and our friends in the local DJ community contact us whenever they have big events and special equipment needs. Even at the last minute, they know they can count on us. We’d like to thank the Triangle Bridal Association, The Triangle DJ Association, Southern Bride & Groom, ISES, NACE, the Triangle Apartment Association and all the other vendors for their continued support and friendship, and look forward to many more great years working together to create unforgettable events.”
Island Sound has a team
of full-time professional DJ’s, Videographers and A-V techs, whose hard work
has paid off and, in its 25th year, they’re the resource of choice for savvy
brides, attentive customers, and industry insiders alike.
Congrats to the Island Sound Team! We sure are glad they are a part of the Triangle wedding industry, and part of SB&G!
