Throwback: At The Lake House by Zack Wussow

I met Jess and Matt at the site of their future wedding ceremony - the family lake house, tucked in a scenic corner of eastern Connecticut. 


Seriously, I was excited when they texted me that they'd be a few minutes late, as it gave me an excuse to take the long way round and take in the fall foliage.


We also stopped by a neighbor's house, for a different view of the lake.


Then we drove down the road a ways to Buell's Orchard, who kindly let us wander around and take a few photos on the property.


And, of course, we had to grab a pumpkin picture, because it was late October.


Really a perfect day to be out in the New England country!

Orchard Vows by Zack Wussow


I met up with Morgan and Doug at Hyland Orchard for some afternoon posed photos out among the trees.


Then we had a little downtime as guests arrived and rode the hayride up the hill to the ceremony location.


The ceremony was beautiful, with Morgan's uncle officiating. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful day, sunny and warm with fluffy clouds and lush trees.


The reception was great, with amazing music from the Boston Party Machine, great food, a roaring bonfire, and lots of dancing.


Plus... Hyland Orchard is home to Rapscallion Brewery. I normally don't drink at weddings, but this time I made an exception. The Belgian White was really good! The brewery made for a lovely backdrop too.


Congratulations, Morgan and Doug!
