A Quaint NJ Barn Wedding for Two

Woolverton Inn was the perfect NJ Barn Wedding Venue for Lilly and Rafael’s quaint elopement. They both grew up on farms and wanted to have their wedding day reflect that feeling of being home.  It was also important that they included their puppy in their big day, and Woolverton Inn is pet friendly!

Here’s what Lilly had to say about their day:

“Everything went as planned. We had no stress, and the few people involved (our Reverend Sue, our Amazing photographer Anais and the Woolverton Inn Owner, Mary) were wonderful. Mary made it all perfect when she let us use their very old barn to have our ceremony in. She made sure we had our privacy even though the Inn was fully packed the night before.

Eloping gave us the opportunity to make our day as personal, intimate and stress free as we wanted. We had full control of our decisions with no outside influence. There were no stressful thoughts about who to invite or where to sit people. It was just us. Taking a big step that only the two of us can fully understand together. This day is about the vows you’re making to the person you love and nothing else. So my advice to future couples is to take your life in your own hands and do what makes you happy.”
