Preppy Vineyard Vines-Inspired Wedding

November 24, 2014

Vineyard Vines could practically be credited for getting Christy and Palmer together. As destiny would have it, when the groom walked into his first law school class at Regent University, one adorable and vivacious brunette called across the room, "Hey you with the pink Vineyard Vines shirt! I love the whale!"

Inspired by the preppy New England-styled clothing brand and the couple's academic history together at Regent, the two lovebirds incorporated the Vineyard Vines whale throughout the wedding in the groomsmen's ties and socks, the napkin holders, and even on the dance floor with a custom gobo by Stage Right Lighting and then also held the entire wedding day on campus in the Regent University Chapel and the bride's grandparents' home, the Regent University Chancellory.

With personal details of family touches and a playful wedding spirit, it was surely a whale of a tale for this preppy pink and green Virginia Beach wedding captured by Katie Wilson Photography and filmed by Eric VanValin!
