Riverhouse At Goodspeed Station Wedding Film
We met Gina & Mike at a past couple’s wedding in the fall of 2017 (check out Maria & Zack’s film here). A bit disheveled and exhausted from shooting Maria & Zack’s wedding all day, we ran into Gina & Mike in the parking lot of Lion Rock Farm just as we were running our equipment out to the car. After striking up a quick conversation in the parking lot, I knew these two would be an awesome couple to work with if given the opportunity. Fast forward a few months, and after we released Maria & Zack’s film, Gina immediately reached out and asked if we were available for her date. Finally, we had an opportunity to create a Riverhouse At Goodspeed Station Wedding Film with a fun-loving, easy-going couple.
Gina & Mike’s ceremony was held with their closest friends and family at St. Lawrence Roman Catholic Church in Killingworth, CT. Let me tell you, Gina’s first look with her dad was one for the record books, and while we’d like to say we always remain professional and hold our shit together, we did not in this moment. Both us, and Alicia from Alicia Pettiti Photography lost our marbles a bit as Gina embraced her dad – seriously, watch the video. We were then hit straight in the feels again, as they opted out of a first look so Mike could experience seeing Gina as she walked down the aisle. Clearly overcome with emotion, Mike lost it as soon as she entered the doors of the church; an incredible moment you really have to see in the film.
From the hospitable staff at the Riverhouse At Goodspeed Station, to the incredible food and awesome vendors we worked with (linked below), we successfully battled the brutal June heat and spent an awesome day capturing Gina & Mike’s story. We’re super stoked to share this film again, and be sure to follow the blog as we’ve got another Riverhouse At Goodspeed Station film to share very soon!
