Email + Feed Issues

by in Main, News on

Hi friends!

With our pretty new site have come a few not-so-pretty behind-the-scenes issues. (Remember when our server crashed? Twice? That was funny. NOT.) Anyway, we wanted to let you know that our email was quite spotty yesterday, and that if you tried to send us something, it didn’t come through. We’re all back up and running now, however, so feel free to send away!

Also, we know that many of you are confused and/or frustrated with the feed situation. We are, too! We know many of you visit us through our feed, and we’re working to get back to the same system we had before, where the full post appears in the feed, images and all. To avoid sending you gobbledygook in the meantime, however, we’re working on just sending through the first few lines of the post and no images. Not a final solution, but a little cleaner while we work out the issue. We’ll update this post to let you know as soon as the feed is (temporarily) fixed!
P.S. Obligatory gorgeous photo to tide you over while we work courtesy of A Bryan Photo

    Hi! This might be a really dumb question, but along the same lines…how do we add the new blog to Google Reader? I’m having trouble getting it to accept “” as a new “subscription”.

      Hi Allison! Not a dumb question at all! I might not be explaining this correctly, but I believe Google Reader is a feed reader, so the problem with Google Reader and the problem with the feed is one and the same. We hope to have both fixed soon!

    This is absolutely stunning!

    You poor ladies! Good luck in getting this all sorted out. It can be frustrating having to sort it all out but the new site is really beautiful. I reckon it’ll be worth it when you’re all settled in. :)

    I love this dress! Who’s the designer?

NOTE: Some of you may have spotted this post on Emily’s blog earlier this week, but until we get our feeds figured out, we’re going to be posting “personal” content here, too!

Last week it was Kiki La Ru’s delicate bunting toppers; this week it’s darling toppers from Potter and Butler!

Emily and Carrie are “makers of handmade goods for authentically merry celebrations.” Don’t you love that tagline? I also love that their name, Potter and Butler, was inspired by their respective great-grandmothers. They write: “Our name is a tribute to our great-grandmothers, Etta Potter and Mirium Butler, who, though they never knew each other, shared an insanely similar set of inspiring characteristics. Potter and Butler were independent, strong, free thinking, hard working, artsy, talented, bird-lovin’, caring about the greater good, resourceful, and stylish (in their own right ) ladies – who could make anything, and more often than not – did make everything – by hand.”

Today I’m featuring two of my favorite products of theirs, the cake garland, which retails for $18, and the set of 12 peppy toppers, which also retails for $18. Colors are customizable on both. Cuteness overload, right?

As a bonus, the girls at Potter and Butler have been so kind as to donate one garland and one topper set for a giveaway! To enter, please visit their shop, then come back here and let us know which you would prefer to win. I’ll announce the winners next week!

  30. avatar Sara reply

    It’s a close call between the Peppy Toppers and Cake Garland, but I think I’m going to have to say I’d prefer the toppers. They’re a unique twist on an already popular trend! I’d love to showcase them at my wedding!

  31. avatar Kelly reply

    My vote goes to the cake garland because it’s just too stinkin cute!!!

Cover Finalist :: Kristen Weaver

by in Main on

Remember how we had a competition to design our V3 cover? We shared a little preview of each of the 15 completed shoots in the print edition, but over the next few weeks we’re going to be sharing extended looks, starting with Kristen Weaver.

We love that Kristen’s shoot picked up on the seaside vibe from the original inspiration. Kristen is based in Orlando and pulled together a terrific team, including stylist Melanie Pace, planner April Dorsey, and makeup artist Mary Irwin, and dresses from Claire Pettibone. See more in the gallery here!

P.S. Like what you see? Pick up a copy of or see our store listings for V3 here!
