4 Beautiful New Jersey Venues for Your Rustic Wedding

4 Beautiful New Jersey Venues for Your Rustic Wedding

Rustic weddings are all about bringing elements of nature -- wood, stone, foliage, etc. -- into the decor and atmosphere of your big day. Think timber frame structures and old stone buildings, open farmlands, and lots of trees.

The decorations are often simple and organic, with wooden crates and barrels, mason jars, candles, and lush greenery everywhere. However, rustic weddings can also be extremely elegant and sophisticated, blending nature with charming vintage elements like gold-framed mirrors, wrought iron, and chalkboards. Either way, it's an excellent option for couples who love DIY crafting, outdoor living, or both.

Couples hosting a rustic wedding often choose locations like farms, barns, vineyards, and even historical villages. Below are a few of our favorite rustic New Jersey wedding venues.

1. Bear Brook Valley

Bear Brook Valley calls itself "a hidden gem tucked into nature." The vast grounds of this Fredon, NJ property include trees, ponds, and waterfalls. You can hold your wedding ceremony under the venue's waterfront wooden arbor, then move over to the farmhouse-style reception building, decked out in lodge-style wood and stone decor.

2. Perona Farms

Perona Farms in Andover overlooks Perona Lake and offers a number of scenic and unique spots for a perfect wedding celebration. Use the outdoor stone patio for cocktail hour, then host your reception in the renovated farmhouse known as The Barn, or The Reserve, a newly-designed space with stone columns, a full bar, and custom lighting.

3. Ryland Inn

The Ryland Inn is a farm-to-table restaurant and event venue with a "rich history of equestrian tradition." This Whitehouse Station establishment offers clean, modern aesthetics and old world rustic charm. After a reception in the country farmhouse-style Grand Ballroom, spend the night in one of the Inn's Breyer Barn accommodations.

4. Waterloo Village

Located in Stanhope, Waterloo Village is a restored 19th-century canal town known for its stunning historical buildings and natural wooded beauty. The best thing about Waterloo is the endless selection of photo and video backdrops hidden within its nearly 70-acre property.
