Jessica and Grey met at Columbia Business School, yet they didn’t begin dating until after school ended and they reconnected at a reunion happy hour. They quickly became best friends and began a relationship.
The pair dated for a little over two years before getting engaged. Jessica and Grey loved to ski and often spent time at Jessica’s family condo in Stratton. One morning after a fresh snowfall, Grey sprang out of bed at 6 a.m. and recommended a morning hike. They took the gondola to the top of the mountain, where Grey proposed.
Reverend Bill Peterson and Cantor Melody Funk officiated at the ceremony on the dock at the bride’s family lake house in New Hampshire. Jessica and her father arrived via a beautiful wooden boa; and to honor both families’ Scottish roots, a bagpiper played while the wedding party walked down the aisle. A reception followed at The Barn at the Pickering House Inn.
The bride, daughter of Charles and Evelyn Rogers of Greenwich, graduated from Rye Country Day School, Northwestern University and Columbia Business School. Jessica works for Mastercard in Greenwich.
The groom, son of Geoffrey Baker and Kathryn Donaldson of Washington, D.C., graduated from St. Albans School, Stanford University and Columbia Business School. Grey also works for Mastercard in Greenwich.
The newlyweds honeymooned in Switzerland, Germany, Austria and Italy. They call Greenwich home.
