Kelly & Brad

Kelly & Brad… so much to say about this sweet couple! We had a blast celebrating their love and marriage with them on Saturday, April 22nd of this year. We were really excited when this couple decided to use our new church pews for their ceremony seating as we had JUST gotten them.  We love the look of the church pews for a ceremony, especially with the floral that they added to the ends. We stumbled across Kelly & Brad’s wedding website which included their love story, as told by the lovebirds themselves.  It was too sweet (and funny) not to share.  Take it away Kelly & Brad!

“I knew JonCon (Kelly’s twin sister, Stacy’s, husband) in college. He and I crooned together, and our paths re-crossed when I moved back to ‘Murica from Japan. Once, we went out to dinner with a few other friends, and Stacy said something about her twin sister moving in with them for a while, to which I responded, ‘Twin sister? Jackpot.'” -Brad

Brad? Never heard of him. I didn’t know Brad, but I did know that I was finishing up PA school and would soon be studying for my boards. Until I passed them and got a job, I did not exactly know where life would take me, and Stacy and Jon graciously offered to let me crash with them for a while. When I moved in, they were busy doing the married-with-kids thing, and they mentioned that I should meet their only remaining single friend, Brad, because he would know the other single people.” – Kelly

“JonCon called one day and asked if I had plans for New Year’s Eve. I had evening plans, but he said he was just doing dinner, BBQ style, so we’d be done in plenty of time. I like to party, I like the Connellys, and I like me some BBQ, so I told them I’d be there! I was expecting a yard party with several people.JonCon called one day and asked if I had plans for New Year’s Eve.

“We were headed back from a mini-vacation to Colonial Williamsburg, and I was exhausted. We were originally supposed to meet up with a group of people for a BBQ, but the host’s work schedule changed and he had to cancel at the last minute. I was relieved because I really just wanted to go home and sleep. When we got back to the house, I flopped facedown on the bed and fell instantly asleep. An unknown amount of time later, Stacy woke me up to say that Jon’s friend, Brad, was coming over for dinner and that I needed to get up and look presentable.” -Kelly

“When I arrived, I was surprised to find only Jon and Stacy at their house…there was no party. Not that I’m complaining, Jon and Stacy are fun, but it’s not what I expected. Soon after, however, Kelly came upstairs looking all foxy, and I realized that this was a double date! Which was surprising, because after that “Jackpot” comment earlier in this story, Stacy had looked at me unequivocally and shook her head, “No, Brad. You’re not allowed to hit on Kelly.” J&S swear to this day that the BBQ was not a setup, but you do the math. I cranked my charm up to eleven (Mom, it’s a 10 point scale, like a volume knob).” -Brad

“I dragged myself off of the bed, not at all excited about having to be social when I was so tired. Stacy reminded me that Brad was one of Jon’s single friends who knew plenty of other single people in the area. I remained sleepily disinterested. She emphasized that he would be a good person to know because he frequently partied with the single crowd, but he would NOT be a good person to date because he frequently partied with the single crowd. Brad arrived while I was still getting ready for dinner. Shortly afterward, I walked upstairs to find him standing in Jon and Stacy’s living room in a suit. A suit?! Weird.” -Kelly

“Dress to impress, young gunz. I look good in suits, so what? We ate dinner, I told many jokes, and Kelly clearly thought they were hilarious. I took off a few hours later, but not before I made a mental note to track that smokewagon down in the near future. I did, and the rest is history! Good call, me.” -Brad

“Well, there were only four seats, so it’s not like I could sit far from Brad. He told a lot of lame jokes, but I giggled politely. When he sent me a message a few days later, my guard was still at an all time high, but I agreed to meet him for dinner. And the rest is history! Questionable call, me.” -Kelly
