“Kelly and Kerry planned a wedding where their friends and family could truly kick back and have a good time. We absolutely loved Kelly’s rose tinted strapless gown and teal cowgirl boots that perfectly matched the bridesmaids’ dresses. Inside, she sewed her ‘something blue’: her new initials and wedding date. Taking place at the historic George Weir Barn in Huntington, all the beautiful decorations were handcrafted by the couple and family friends, including the earthy table runner of moss and succulents! Kelly and Kerry’s love for each other shone through every detail, and we couldn’t be more happy for them!” –William Thomas Photography

What is your favorite wedding day memory?

Our favorite wedding day memory, although there were many, would have to be the moment that the limos pulled up to the venue and we realized that all the hard work made our vision possible. The weather was less than ideal in the morning, but just before the first look pictures, the sun came out and we knew that this was going to be the best day of our lives! Our photographers led us to each other and we will never forget the instant we had our private moment to kiss and embrace one another before we became husband and wife!

What did you DIY for your wedding?

My Mother and I had basic invitations printed up and wrapped them with antique lace, twine and hung a horseshoe charm before placing it in a burlap envelope. The bridal party wore cowboy boots, which made for great photos. We brought in many beautiful plants and trees from a local nursery to surround the barn which had no landscaping at all and bought many bolts of fabric to drape from the beams and the ceiling inside of the barn. We also had old wine barrels, vintage windows {that served as our seating chart} and small pieces of furniture that served as a vignette as our guest entered the barn. An artist friend of mine painted a beach scene with an airplane flying a banner with our names and wedding date and room for our guests to leave their thumbprints {as their footprints} on and sign their names which we now have framed and is hanging in our home as a keepsake. We also bought galvanized trays to serve the desserts on and had electric lights inside of lanterns on both sides of the ramp leading up to the barn doors. We had a lot of mason jars filled with either lights or flowers and the walls had lights strung on them with old farm tools hanging. I always wanted to take wedding pictures in the back of an old pickup, so my husband befriended farmers who live out on the island who lent us their old farm truck and tractor as well as placed old farm equipment around the property making it look like a scene from a movie. They also brought bales of straw which were then stacked and covered in fabric and pillows to serve as couches for the cocktail hour. My one year old godson was the ring bearer and since we didn’t know if he would walk yet, we bought him a remote control convertible in which he came down the aisle just before me. At the end of the ceremony, our bridal party crossed hockey sticks as we walked under as husband and wife.

Something old, new, borrowed and blue?

No, I only had a something new and something blue.

Any advice for brides currently in the planning process?

Choose your vendors carefully and make sure that your vendors are both honest and capable to do the jobs that they were hired to do. Have a vision for your special day and make it happen. Stay calm and if something goes wrong, just roll with it because it’s not worth spoiling your special day! -Kelly, the bride
