Hi!  There are tons of places! I wouldn’t look so much for benches because you’ll find beautiful fences and benches anywhere! I just got engaged in Newport, RI. They have this amazing lighthouse and beautiful Castle Hill Inn. It’s picture perfect right on the water. It was voted #2 most romantic place in New England! 

Hope it helps!

I think that is a pretty broad area, as there are probably hundreds of places like that in Southern New England. 

Have you hired your photographer yet?  I think this might limit your area down and they should be able to give you ideas based on places they shot at before.

I second the idea of Rhode Island. We got married there,,,just gorgeous!!  

Newport is stunning, Narragansett has gorgeous beaches, both rocky and sandy.  There are lots of places with bridges, fences, cute old homes, big old homes, character character character.

Also, if you are up for a trip, do a day trip out to Martha’s Vineyard or Nantcuket. MV has so much charm all over the island, lots of different “looks” and “scenes” to work with.

FutureMrsDM:  I know the perfect place!!! Lake Chocorua! There’s a bridge with a lake and Mount Chocorua in the background! Probably my favorite view in the world. There are also fences around there, a cute barn with a little field, paths along the lake. It’s amazing. It’s about 2 hours north of the NH/MA border, but I think it may be worth it for you.

The best spot for benches would definitely be the Boston Common and the Public Garden. The willow trees in the Public Garden are gorgeously yellow in the fall, and they’re right over the pond with the swans. For foliage with a view of the Boston skyline, try the Blue Hills Reservation (south of the city).

For lakes and rivers, I would head to Lincoln, NH. There are a some gorgeous lakes (Echo Lake/Profile Lake) and the Pemigewasset River is a pretty, very clear, fast-flowing one. These photos don’t do it justice at all (rainy day), but google “The Basin.”

Covered bridge: Quechee, VT.

Quabbin Reservoir has some really gorgeous foliage along with old bridges and a cool old stone building/tower that you can climb.

Harkness Memorial State Park has a beautiful mansion, a really cool garden with stone walls and an arbor, foliage and a perfect view out over the ocean. I don’t know if there are bridges there but the place is so gorgeous.

Shelburne Falls in Mass has the bridge of flowers but I’m not sure what really goes on in the fall. But it’s a very New England-y town and I think down the road is a lookout which would have beautiful foliage views.
