I'm hoping this couple made some sort of career change after their wedding because I'd like to chat with them about my own upcoming nuptials. From the barn wood tables to endless custom details, they created a rustic wonderland for their guests. Add in an awesome venue and gorgeous photos by Brigham & Co. and you'll find me taking notes from the full gallery for the foreseeable future.

From Brigham & Co... High school sweethearts, Christie and Tommy have been together for more than a decade. The native Long Islanders sought an escape from the busy city to celebrate what would be the best day of their lives.

In the heart of the Catskills, just a hop-skip from where the duo vacations and hunt deer and duck, C&T settled on the serene, woodland property of the Roxbury Barn. And on July 19, 2014, the two said “I do.”

Tommy, the hunter, and Christie, the gatherer, assembled much of the big day with their own two hands. Tommy crafted the 16-foot barn wood tables from a felled barn down the road from the venue, while Christie collected every single piece of China, glassware, furniture and the antique yard games for prime cocktail hour entertainment. They even brought their beloved furry family, Kiera and Joey, to say “I do too.”

Readying in a mid-nineteenth century home, the bride and her best girls since juvenescence sipped on bubbly clothed in robes, a jubilant glimmer in their eyes.

The couple wedded at the top of a hill in a pine grove beneath cool, gray skies and surrounded by pale pinks, textures, and everyone who mattered. The reception glistened at twilight and with hanging lights, and the night cozily and tranquilly came to a close alongside the bonfire.

Dedicated in loving memory to Tommy's mother, Sandra Franklin, a strong, loving and vivacious woman who let this world much too soon.
