Sophie's Blue and White Caribbean Wedding
By Tuckernuck on
Our Creative Director Sophia recently got married on St. John in her home town of the US Virgin Islands. While she and her husband Adam live in Washington, DC, Adam’s home town, they celebrated in their version of island style, which meant blue and white accents, a sunset sail, Soca music, pelicans, palms, and an evening that ended knee-deep in the Caribbean Sea. Here, she explains every detail, from her invitations all the way to the after party.
WELCOME TO ST. JOHN
The stationery set featured pelicans and a nautical map
The wedding took place at Caneel Bay Resort on St. John.
The Gift Bags
The gift bags featured local root beer and rum to make a cocktail upon arrival.
The Gift Bags
A little snack and a schedule also went into the gift bags.
We chose Caneel Bay Resort on St. John as the venue for its timeless beauty and understated charm. It’s pretty clear that we love blue, so the invitations and welcome bags echoed the soothing color!

Sophie and all guests get their feet wet.
Prior to the rehearsal dinner, we took a sunset sail with the wedding party and family. The captain beached the catamaran in front of the rehearsal venue, and we made the guests get their feet a little wet (sorry)! As you can tell, I’m happiest when knee deep in the Caribbean Sea.
The centerpieces featured vibrant pink flowers.
We also added in some greenery.

The seated dinner at Rhumb Lines was very low key. At this cute, Caribbean restaurant tucked away in a charming garden, we enjoyed tropical cocktails, fresh fish, and local flowers.
