Elegant DIY Kentucky Wedding

Kelly-and-Topher-Kentucky-Wedding-Jonathan-Gibson (18 of 34)

From the lush, green setting to the delicious barbecue served at the reception, Kelly and Topher’s casual, yet elegant day is definitely representative of everything sweet and beautiful in a Kentucky wedding. The pair even incorporated their french bulldog into the ceremony, which made for some seriously cute photos. The hard work and planning Kelly and Topher put into their wedding paid off in folds; we are loving all of the DIY elements and personal touches seen throughout. Skillfully documented by Jonathan Gibson Studios, Kelly and Topher’s love for each other and for their friends and family could not be anymore apparent. Enjoy!

The Couple: Kelly and Topher

The Wedding: Florence, Kentucky

The Inspiration: “Topher and I are very simple; we wanted a relaxed, outdoor wedding that had a slight rustic feel. We had a lot of DIY projects that we enjoyed creating to get the look we were going for. Even though our wedding was outdoor casual, we didn’t hold back on the special occasion aspect so we went with a formal tux and Kelly’s dream dress!”

  1. Hello!
    Where is this beautiful veil and headpiece from? I love it!

    • Thank you! I found it at a local wedding boutique. You could probably make one if you can’t find one :)

      • beautiful wedding! where did you get your dress kelly?

  2. I am so obsessed with her veil/headpiece. Where is it from?

  3. I absolutely love your head piece and vail. I am desperately trying to find one for my wedding that is a month away. Would you consider selling yours?

  4. I was wondering if you put two headpieces together? I have searched high and low for a headpiece similar to yours. If you would want to sale it, I would be willing to give you any price considering this is a very important piece to complete my day and I can not find ANYTHING I like or comparable to this. Or maybe just the name of the boutique so I could possibly get in touch with them and see about purchasing one from them. Thank you and you looked stunning on your special day!

  5. Hey Kelly, I loved your look and am on the hunt for a headpiece like the one you are wearing. Can you by chance share the boutiques name so I could try and contact them. Thanks so much!

  6. Hey Kelly I was wondering what boutique you bought your hairpiece?
