Christina and Mike's Wedding Chatfield Hollow Inn, Killingworth, Connecticut

June 14, 2021


Chatfield Hollow Inn, Killingworth, Connecticut


Christina and Mike's wedding was a very different than many of the conventional weddings. She did extensive planning for 2 years to create her fairytale wedding.  She picked Chatfield Hollow Inn as her venue, picked the most amazing dress, and flowers to match her Boho theme.  The groomsmen and bridesmaids dresses and suits, were both had very unconventional yet so fitting for the theme. The table settings and reception details were so elegant and came together with such beauty.  Everything came together for a "storybook" wedding and with that we start the photo journey with getting ready shots of Mike and his groomsmen.


With the guys all set it is time for Christina's bride prep photos

With Christina and Mike all dressed and ready it was time for their first look. 

After their first look, we spent some nice time in the forest and property taking some great photos.  Christina wanted a Boho theme for her wedding so I found a nice area in the forest with ferns and had her spend time there alone and with Mike for their photos.  It was the perfect spot to create that organic early feeling.

Formals came next with photos of Mike and his mom and family, the bridal party and Christina and her parents. 

At the Inn there is a large ceremony area perfect for a ceremony in the woods.  Joy and love was everywhere.  Christina and Mike read their personal vows which were very touching and had us all in tears.

With the ceremony finished, next came the cocktail hour in a beautiful orchard and reception under the big tent.  It was a joyous celebration in the forest, listening to the sounds of croaking frogs and feeling the warmth of summer in the air.  

What an incredible wedding day.  Christina and Mike you did an amazing job with all your planning and special touches.  Special thanks to all the A Team vendors, that helped make Christina and Mike's wedding dreams come True
