vineyard vines, Wedding Wednesday, ties, preppy

We met… In south Florida when I moved down here from Pennsylvania a little over 5 years ago. Madison was already friends with my sister at the time.

The proposal… It was amazing for me. We took a trip out to California last year with his family and some friends. We were staying in a house owned by the Arista Winery that was surrounded by vineyards. After some wine tasting earlier in the day, Madison and I decided to take a walk down one of the oldest original vineyards that was planted in 1886. While taking in the beautiful scenery, Madison asked me to spend the rest of my life with him. I said yes! We then walked back up to the house and celebrated with everyone because my best friend had asked me to marry him.

The wedding venue… The wedding was in Seaside, Florida. My husband’s parents helped build the chapel there, so it only felt right for it to be the place where we exchanged our vows.

We incorporated VV into our special day by… VV made the ties for my husband, the groomsman, and my father. Since Madison is a boat captain and fishing is his life, we wanted something special and unique. They custom-made our ties in our colors of aqua with coral sailfish. They turned out absolutely wonderful and everyone loved them. We were so thankful that VV could be a part of our special day.

Happy Friday!

If you want your Dark & Stormy done right, you’ve come to the right place. After all, we had the pleasure of meeting up with Malcolm Gosling himself! And whether it’s dark and stormy or bright and sunny, any day is a good day to sit back and relax with an ice cold glass of Gosling’s signature cocktail. Check out their recipe and see for yourself!

Happy 4th of July!

If you’re heading out for a day at sea, there’s probably a few essentials you won’t want to leave home without. We asked a few of our friends what they pack up for their sea escapes. What’s in your boat bag?

Costa Sunglasses - So you can “see what’s out there”.
VV hat - To shade the rays.
VV T-Shirt – Lightweight and breathable for hot sunny days.
Harbor Shirt - The ultimate fishing shirt.
Fishing Rod – To reel in the keepers.
Towel - For dips and lounging.
Sunscreen – Lobsters are for eating, not for imitating.
Croakies – Because no one wants to lose their shades…
Tote Bag – To hold it all together.

Sparks fly in July

The Friday Five

Jun 27, 2014

Back to School- I’ll be enrolling at UVA Business School (Darden) this fall.

Dream Destination- I would really like to visit my little sister in Billings Montana this summer. I would love to see Glacier National Park with her and bring my #pants along for the journey.

The VV Poplin Breaker Pants in Genoa have got to be my favorite. They are so comfortable and very light and the color really pops. The first night I wore them (Wedding in Charleston), people all night were asking me who made them, where they could buy them, etc.

Summer Vacation- I am most excited about a father-son trip to Royal Isabela in Puerto Rico at the end of July. We’re planning on playing 36 holes of golf a day, getting some grass court tennis in, riding waves and learning how to surf on their beautiful beaches. We’ll also probably go on a birding trip – my Dad’s latest obsession.

EDSFTG- I get the #EDSFTG feeling every time I visit my parents on Daufuskie Island, SC. The island is gorgeous and loaded with wildlife, and we’re always outside doing activities. Whether I’m golfing in the afternoons or barefoot waterskiing at the crack of dawn, I can’t help but feel like #EDSFTG when on Daufuskie (especially in the right pair of #pants).


Splash into Summer

The best part about doing what you love, is that you’re always having fun. And, well…we’ve found that some of our best work has come from laughter, smiles, a little bit of dancing, and a laid-back summer state of mind. It also doesn’t hurt to have Bermuda as a backdrop!  We thought we’d share some of the fun we had on the island. So kick off your flip flops, and enjoy the show!


Meet Hartford Prints! A letterpress studio and stationery store that was created by three sisters: Addy, Callie and Rory. With a modern and fun twist, these sisters create stunning wedding invitations and greeting cards with a boatload of talent. Check out the beautiful invitations they concocted with our Sailboat Print Sundress as their inspiration!

The sisters use an old-fashioned form of relief printing and their work is “truly a labor of love.” They work with their clients to understand the style, look and feel of their wedding in order to design the perfect invitation suite. The result is a timeless, one-of-a-kind piece that clients can treasure forever.

“Inspired by sailboats and sea breezes, this invitation design combines graphic layouts with geometric patterns to create a truly modern wedding invitation. Playing with negative and positive space, the navy-inked pattern references nautical elements while the blind embossment adds interesting texture. Paired with a beautiful script font for a playful pop of color, this wedding invitation suite is simple in its elegance and perfectly preppy.”
