Are you wondering where to have your engagement session or wedding? How about a day trip? Harkness Memorial Park is one of my favorite beaches in Connecticut. The English gardens are straight out of Home & Gardens. Pack your picnic and your bathing suit, volleyball or kite, this is one place you will want to stay all day. Amy & Derek met me in early October for what looked like a summer engagement session. I love the seasonal progression of the gardens and enormous trees on the property. There is an endless amount of beauty and inspiration to be found here. I especially like going during the week when it’s less crowded and off season. We had the whole place to ourselves. What’s even better was Amy and Derek’s playfulness and spirit of adventure. I cannot wait for their summer wedding!
