About the Real NC Wedding Featured on the Southern Bride & Groom magazine 2019 Cover
Southern Bride and Groom 2019 has launched! Check our social media pages this week for updates of where to find your free copy of the magazine around the Triangle Area. You can visit this list of go-to pick up points. This 32nd annual edition of SB&G is for engaged couples in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. It’s packed to the brim with local wedding inspiration, planning tips, and the best Raleigh area vendors. Along with the launch, we are thrilled to reveal our first Southern Bride & Groom 2019 cover. The Winter/Spring cover image is from a real NC wedding that took place at the breathtaking River Forest Manor and Marina.
We do not orchestrate a cover photo shoot for our annual magazine. Instead, we invite the preferred SB&G photographers to submit real weddings and shoots to us. It is from this work that two very special images are chosen as our seasonal covers. It’s a tradition that we have a lot of fun with at Team SB&G, and we are always especially excited when the pick is from a real wedding.
This wedding is not only a picture-perfect Southern dream, but it happens to feature the work of several SB&G wedding vendors. So we couldn’t resist sharing a few images, and the beautiful wedding film, from Anna and Cy’s day.
The Look of Love – the Southern Bride & Groom Winter/Spring 2019 Cover
This cover image encapsulates what a wedding is all about – the union of two people. This look of love between Anna and Cy reveals exuberant joy and peaceful comfort all at once. It was captured by the talented Katherine Miles Jones Photography.
About the Southern Bride & Groom 2019 Cover Wedding
The River Forest Manor & Marina is a classic Southern destination with gorgeous water views. It is located just a couple of hours from Raleigh, in the eastern North Carolina town of Belhaven. A team of top Raleigh wedding professionals came together to create a dream wedding for Anna and Cy.
SB&G alum Gather Together designed this event, which started with a ceremony on the lawn outside of the picturesque historic manor house. The reception took place in a gorgeous sailcloth tent alongside the marina. A modern look of greens and blues exuded Southern elegance with a nautical nod.
The vendor team included some current SB&G preferred vendors, including the venue, Party Reflections, American Party Rentals, Petal & Oak, One + Only Paper, Twenty-One Films, SilverCeiling Beauty Consulting, and of course, Katherine Miles Jones Photography.
Anna & Cy’s River Forest Manor and Marina Wedding Video by Twenty-One Films
For a sweet look at Anna and Cy’s waterfront NC wedding, take a look at their wedding film. Twenty One Films is one of the top wedding videographers in Raleigh. They’re also the NC wedding filmmaker that SB&G recommends. We love their laid back approach to shooting – they let the day flow and do not stage shots, but they still present a polished, artistic wedding film product.
