Lindsy Johnson & Ryan Kelley on July 1, 2017

“We knew we wanted to get married at a vineyard and when we went to Newport Vineyards, we knew right away.”

When Scituate, RI., native Lindsy Johnson first met Ryan Kelley from Coventry, RI., she was working at Whiskey Republic restaurant in Providence. He would visit the bar frequently, just to catch a glimpse of her and try to get to know her. As they started to spend time together, it was as if they had known each other forever. After three years of dating, she didn’t know what to expect during a quiet evening on the beach. When she found Ryan sitting in the sand holding an English bulldog puppy with a sign that read, “Will you marry us?”, Lindsy ended the night as the proud owner of a new puppy, and as a fiancé. – NH


Something Old

Lindsy was able to honor her late grandmother by tucking a locket with her picture and handkerchief inside her bouquet. Ryan also had the stone from her grandmother’s ring reset into Lindsy’s engagement ring, allowing Lindsy to always have a piece of her grandmother with her. The couple took photos in a 1930 Ford Model A sedan that the bride’s father restored.

In the details

Lindsy and Ryan took every opportunity to embrace the rustic yet modern feel of Newport Vineyards. Decor and signs were designed to match the fixtures and style of the space including wine barrels as display tables, and reclaimed corks that shared the table seating assignments. In addition to their wedding cake, they also featured Tricycle Ice Cream presented in a wooden cart.

Best Dressed

The pastel and copper color palette was showcased in the bridal party’s attire. Lindsy’s Estee Bridal lace, fit and flare gown was perfectly complemented by the bridesmaid’s full-length sage chiffon dresses. The groom and groomsmen were looking dapper as well in grey suits with pastel sage green ties.

Where are they now?

After soaking up the sun in St. Lucia on their honeymoon, Lindsy and Ryan returned home to Cranston, RI where Lindsy works in jewelry merchandising and Ryan at Atlantic Plumbing and Heating Supply. They welcomed a daughter, Meadow, in April.
