Tess + Blake’s Rogers Orchards Connecticut Wedding was a dream! I am so excited to share it with you today! Their wedding day venue, Rogers Orchards, was both stunning and meaningful to the couple, as Blake’s dad worked on Roger’s Orchards for almost 20 years! Tess + Blake loved the idea of getting married at a location that had meaning behind it, while also boasting spectacular views of the horizon, surrounded by apple trees. They also loved the fact that the venue had no curfew time, which meant they could party and celebrate their big day well into the night with their friends and family!
Tess + Blake’s outdoor wedding had a romantic, rustic vibe. Tess’s bridesmaids wore lovely long dresses in various shades of blush that were accented by their pink and white bouquets. We explored various spots around Rogers Orchards and captured some truly gorgeous photos of the newlyweds. The views from the top of the wooden deck overlooking the mountainside and all below were breathtaking!! However, some of my favorite photos from Tess + Blake’s Rogers Orchards Connecticut Wedding are out in the apple tree lined rows in the orchard.
Both Tess and Blake are extremely sweet and have a wonderful sense of humor! When asked what they love most about each other, they answered that they both love to make the other laugh and simply enjoy being in each other’s company. How sweet is that?
I asked them to share their proposal story, because who doesn’t love to hear all the details of a proposal?!? This is what they had to share:
“On April 13, 2019 while walking our dog near their first apartment together, they sat down on a bench in a park along the river and Blake asked me to marry him. He had told me the weekend before, that he was getting brunch with his friends, but actually drove to my parents house to let them know what he was planning to do, and arranged all our friends to meet us that evening at a bar in Boston to celebrate! The whole day was so thoughtful and special.”
After over 5 years together, this amazing couple has shared a lot of laughs and plan to continue laughing together and creating memories through their adventures, travels, and just being together. Congratulations, Tess and Blake! Thank you for allowing me to capture your wedding day memories!
