Kristina & Everett
We chose Bristol because we wanted to get married on the water and show our guests how special our hometown is. As soon as we walked into the Hall of Boats, we fell in love with the space.

A summer’s day on the water and night on the town in Newport with friends was all it took to ignite a spark between Rockville, CT native Kristina Galley, who was then living in Boston, and Everett Correia from Portsmouth. “We joked, danced and made fun of each other all day. Our sarcastic sense of humor is what drew us together,” explains the bride. “After about a month, we finally had our first date in Boston.” Fast forward innumerable trips back-and-forth between towns, four years of love and sarcasm and a joint move to Bristol, the couple found themselves at Sachuest Point in Middletown on November 1, 2015 faced with a very important decision. While walking a path that overlooked Second Beach, Everett knelt and asked Kristina to marry him and the couple quickly began making plans for their hometown nuptials. –TS
Dress to Express
To give her bridesmaids a bit of wiggle-room in their fashion statement, they each chose their own style while Kristina designated a general color scheme of soft grays, pale pinks and champagne. The flowers complemented the dresses with a palette of light pinks, creams and white with a touch of purple and green accents with eucalyptus and succulents.
To reflect the rose gold color of the wedding bands, the couple wove the metallic hue throughout the decor and bridal party accessories, including rose gold embossed invitations, the men’s tie clips, the bride’s headpiece and jewelry.
Fun and Frivolity
For her grand entrance, the bride and her father came down the pier at the Herreshoff Marine Museum in his 1970s mustang that has been in the family for more than 30 years. In addition, her father’s two best friends opened the door for the bride and carried her train as she walked the aisle with her parents laughing all the way. To top it off, the officiant, a friend of the couple, took a selfie of them during the ceremony. “It was so funny and a great way to capture the moment!”
Where are They Now
After going wild on a safari in South Africa, the newlyweds returned to their home in Bristol where Kristina is a digital marketing manager and Everett an associate attorney.
