My brother got married at Memorytown in the Poconos and it is very rustic/barn themed. They were one of the first people to get married there so the owners really worked with them and made their day perfect, so I can’t speak to how they are now, but they loved it!

Have you checked out any of Jeffery Miller’s venues? They have a bunch and several have the rustic vibe I think you’re looking for! 

The food is all farm to table and seasonal, so everything is fresh. Nothing like your typical wedding food. 

Waterloo Village, Bishop Farmstead, and a few of their other venues seem like they’d be a great fit!

I would suggest looking into Crystal Springs in Hardyston I believe it is. Also Lake Mohawk Country Club in Sparta and Perona Farms. Are you dead set on a wedding date? I’m sure if it’s not on a Fri or Sat night, it would a ton cheaper. I live in the same county as all of these.

It’s a tent attached to a cocktail room and has a side that opens at night to a beautiful patio  and lake! It can be Air conditoned too and since there’s no grass it gives it an extra layer of elegance. Definitely go check it out especially now with the nice weather it’s a beautiful property and offers outdoor ceremonies with the lake as the backdrop.

kittymoon777 :  kittymoon777 :  Hi, I completely understand where you are coming from, I was searching for the same thing. Have you looked at Waterloo Village in Stanhope, NJ? It’s a historic location, very rustic, secluded and spacious but also classy and fancy enough for a full wedding offering several ceremony locations including a chapel, secret garden and gazebo. There is also a bridal cottage, large fireplaces, outdoor firepit with pizza oven, farm tables, mismatched chairs, iron touches, wooden beams, etc. It is a very versatile space where you can dress it up for a more formal wedding or keep it simple and clean for a casual affair. It’s very reasonably priced and includes several decor options, table settings, top shelf bar, the cake, signature drinks, a wedding planner and much more, making the planning experience enjoyable instead of stressful.

We attended a wedding last fall at the Abbie Holmes Estate and it was beautiful. It has a slightly rustic feel with an old farmhouse and an outdoor chapel for the ceremony – but they also had a large event room that was gorgeous.

I think the owners also have a catering company, and the food was good as well. It’s located just a little south of Ocean City, between Sea Isle & Stone Harbor. The grounds are beautiful, and as a wedding photographer basically every inch I was making a mental note of how many pretty spots there were for photos! I don’t know how much it costs but it could be worth looking at. 

A few years ago I photographed a wedding at Renault Winery in Egg Harbor. I know the couple specficially picked it because it was more affordable and budget friendly. The grounds were beautiful – it was October and golden light in the vineyard made portraits stunning! My biggest takeaway was how great the staff was, especially the venue coordinator. The reception room definitely had a rustic/vintage italian feel to it, but I was suprised at how easy it was to make look good in photos.
