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!
