Gina & Zach’s Wedding

This is truly a wedding we are happy to be sharing!  Gina and Zach are like family to everyone here at A Southern Soiree and their wedding was a special celebration for our team.  In case you’re just tuning in…Gina is one of our fabulous consultants and she has been planning other couple’s weddings now for over four years.  She is kind, smart, funny, extremely organized, and most importantly now married to the love of her life, Zach.  The pair met while in school at East Carolina University, got engaged in July 2013 and were married at The Sutherland in Wake Forest, NC in March of 2015.  To see more about how they met and their engagement story, click here to watch this short video produced by Twenty-One Films.

One of the great things about working in the wedding industry is the connections you make with vendors– many of these individuals have become our close friends.  There is definitely no shortage of talented vendors that we here at A Southern Soiree work with on a regular basis so choosing the wedding professionals for her own wedding was no easy task.  Gina picked out a great team, however, and Gina and Zach’s wedding day was made so much more special with the help of these people.  Phil, Jess, and everyone with Twenty-One Films have shared an office with our team for many years, our company works with them and laughs with them on a daily basis.  We also share an office with Azul Photography.  Christobal and the Azul team are always fun to work with and quite often are present to capture the most memorable and significant moments for our A Southern Soiree team.

Outside of capturing the day, Gina and Zach chose their friends at Rocky Top Catering to give them the most perfect wedding feast.  Bacon bar… ’nuff said ;)!   The English Garden provided the most gorgeous flowers, Sweet Traditions brought the cake, and DJ Randy with Bunn DJ Company kept the party going all night!  It truly was a dream day for both Gina & Zach surrounded by their family and friends — we’re so excited to share these images!
