Nicolle & Andrew | Spring House Hotel Wedding Film | Block Island
Spring House Hotel Wedding Film
Block Island is a pretty special place, and until Nicolle & Andrew’s wedding, was a place we never had the opportunity to visit. This tiny island off the coast of Rhode Island was named “Manisses” or “Island of the Little God” by the early dutch settlers in 1661. I’m no history buff, but what I do know is that our brief time spent on this little rock in the middle of the ocean was truly incredible, and has a special allure and ambiance that I haven’t experienced in a lot of places in my life. So when the opportunity presented itself to travel to Block Island and shoot our first Spring House Hotel Wedding Film, we were pretty excited.
This weekend with Nicolle and Andrew capped off a back to back island wedding weekend for us at NEC, with our travels to Martha’s Vineyard to shoot Najah & Omar’s wedding the week prior. Two ferry rides, two first-time island visits, and two incredible weddings with amazing couples.
We arrived to Block Island after a quick ferry ride from New London, CT and as soon as we stepped off the ferry on the docks at Block Island, we were immediately pulled into the unique, quaint and perfectly New England surroundings of this place. After getting settled into our vendor house, and meeting some of the band crew, and the incredible Angelina Rose Photography, we were picked up by officiant and brother of the bride Jackson, and drove through some quaint BI backroads to meet Nicolle & Andrew. From our time spent with Andrew and his groomsmen, connecting over our favorite Treehouse Brewing craft beers, to our time spent with Nicolle, her bridesmaids, and her mom as she prepped just prior to the ceremony, we knew we’d mesh well with these two.
From the incredible first look at the Mohegan Bluffs, riding around in Nicolle’s rad maroon jeep she’s had since high school, to the majestic views and amazing staff at the Spring House Hotel – a 164 year old historical landmark and the island’s oldest hotel which has hosted many notable guests over the years including Ulysses S. Grant, Mark Twain, and Billy Joel; it was an amazing day. Shout out to Angie from Angelina Rose Photography and her assistant Lizzy from Elizabeth Rose Creative for being my surprise assistant, and all-around awesome people to hang with. We couldn’t have had more of a blast on our first trip to Block Island, and look forward to many more opportunities in the future. Now give their film a watch below, and witness the magic of this amazing place.
