Rustic and Farm Wedding venues

Living in Central New Jersey, we are blessed to have a multitude of rustic and unique wedding venues in the area.  From country farms to private estates, not every wedding has to be in a traditional wedding hall.  Some of these venues specialize in full-service weddings just like a traditional hall, and some of the venues cater to the couple who really wants to DIY most of the wedding themselves.  One thing they all have in common is that each is wedding is truly unique to the couple.  Take a look below at some of the rustic and farm weddings we’ve had the honor of being a part of over the years.
