Cornerstones of Rustic Wedding Dreams
Stunning New York and New Jersey Farm Wedding Venues
When you start to explore rustic venues in the tri-state area, you will soon come across two unsurpassed locations. And although we are happy to bring in rentals to transform any space you love into a rustic wedding oasis, the ones that are already nearing perfection will book up fast. So waste no time in previewing the most popular rustic wedding venues in New York and New Jersey so you can make a final decision to book a year out.
To get a head start on all the other couples who are keen on the ever-growing rustic wedding trend, we suggest you explore two of our top recommendations:
- Spring Valley Meadows: Once known as Peppadew Fresh Vineyard and Winery, Spring Valley Meadows in Morganville, NJ delights wine lovers and facilitates the most elegant wedding visions. The pristine 15-acre property with flower farm offers exceptional scenic views. And with a serene patio, rustic 1800s barn and impressive outdoor fire pit on-site, there are plenty of opportunities for unforgettable moments and photo ops.
- Bayonet Farm: Lush rolling active farmlands and a historic red barn with modern amenities whisk your guests back to a time of simple joy and beauty. Enjoy exploring the 240 acres of publicly owned lands that welcome your rustic wedding dreams.
Rustic Décor and Complimentary Lighting
Once you fall in love with a wedding space, let your personality shine through in every corner of it. Our skilled team can coordinate linens and lighting in your color scheme to ensure your guests enjoy a seamless rustic wedding atmosphere. With natural and neutral colors accented by pops of green and gold being a great fit to the most popular rustic wedding venues, it is easy to highlight your creative ideas. Handwritten welcome signs are just one of many great DIY projects that show how much you care.
Personalized Beverage Services
A rustic wedding theme invites guests to take their time as they settle in to your space. And bars are not only a meeting point but also a prime opportunity to reinforce your desired atmosphere. We can use wine barrels to make the bar and galvanized tubs to cool beverages. When guests step up to this charming display, we’ll hand them their favorite drink or your signature one in mason jars. You may even write your initials or wedding date on napkins as well.
Simply Beautiful Food Presentations
In farm life especially, meals are as much about the company and experience as the food itself. Our wedding menus are always delivered by our friendly staff and designed to make guests feel at home. Two of our favorite ways to give the finest wedding menus a relaxed rustic vibe are by presenting food in mason jars and displaying cold dishes on antiqued wood. Smoked and BBQ foods fit in exceptionally well with these creative rustic food displays.
BBQ and smoked foods can be as complex or simple as you like. Examples of popular picks include:
- BBQ bacon slider: with sweet potato wedge
- Polenta cheddar crisps: with BBQ’d pulled pork and caramelized onion jam
- Tomato & smoked mozzarella bruschetta: with shaved parmesan
Relaxing Country-Style Entertainment
Ranch life is one of simple fun and endless support. Let your family values and passion shine through in a custom country playlist and decked out dance floor. Outdoor venues also invite horseshoe pits, although few additional activities are needed when guests have vast acres of natural beauty to explore. Whatever rustic wedding entertainment you choose, remember to relax and simply enjoy your celebration.
