I knew Gina and Louie were a vibrant and a unique love. What I didn’t know is that they would plan a wedding that would equal the way that their relationship feels, and that’s incendiary. I’ve said this before after their engagement session and I’ll say it again, they love fearlessly and support each other unwaveringly. You’ll know that within seconds of meeting them.
I also knew that hockey is a big part of their lives. Louie coaches hockey and Gina had her eye on him when she saw him playing hockey. So it was no surprise when I got the text that they moved their wedding to the Utica Memorial Auditorium. My curiosity was definitely peaked.
Their wedding day was nothing short of amazing. Actually, it kinda blew me away. Gina and Louie and their families planned a spectacular day for them. It was fun, exciting, and inspiring to see their creativity and ideas come alive. It was the best first wedding celebration at the Utica Memorial Auditorium and I felt so lucky to be there and document such a great story.
I am so happy for Gina and Louie! Watching them become husband and wife was incredible and I would totally relive that day over and over again. I’ll let the photographs tell you why. Congratulations to Gina and Louie!
