Bryce Vann Brock and Kelly Revels combined landscape design with event planning, when they created The Vine boutique on St. Simons Island, in Georgia.

When Southern Living Magazine decided to do a story on their unique enterprise, they knew exactly where the location needed to be. Their friend, homeowner/interior designer Lisa Carmichael, had created a colorful and inviting outdoor space, featuring our Double Decker umbrellas, and she was thrilled when Kelly and Bryce asked to use her backyard. Lisa loves her Double Deckers. “They’re so stylish and functional, they were really the inspiration for the backyard when my colleague Gina Lever and I originally designed it”, says Lisa, “and one of the main reasons ‘the Girls’ wanted to use my backyard for the shoot.”

“Lisa is a friend of ours,” says Kelly. “We’ve spent time in that backyard, under those majestic umbrellas. We knew we had the perfect backdrop for our entertaining story.” As event planners, Kelly and Bryce know how to produce a party, and décor is an important part of that equation. “So much happens outdoors, and it is always a challenge to fill airspace with architecture. Especially for a photo shoot; when we saw these DD’s we knew we had the hero shot.”
