Melissa + Chris • WoodsEdge Farm Wedding • New Jersey Wedding Photographer

 It was the most perfect fall day! 

Melissa and Chris tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony at WoodsEdge Farm, officiated by the bride's older brother. The couple knew the ceremony would be personal and meaningful having it done by someone who knew them and their relationship. 

 They chose to get married under a big oak tree with llama enclosures on either side.  WoodsEdge Farm was the first venue they visited and it just fit their personalities perfectly. 
The couple added another personal touch to their ceremony- tree planting before exchanging vows.  They chose an indoor potted olive tree as a symbol of peace, hope and love and a nod to their dog, Olive.  They collected dirt from their childhood homes and poured them together into the olive tree pot which now sits in their living room as a reminder of their wedding day. 

Their reception was held in the barn at WoodsEdge Farm, a few steps away from their ceremony.
Wood farm tables decorated with greenery, pillar candles and tea lights over delicate lace and sheer table runners in ivory along with blush tones brought a bit of rustic yet elegant vibes to the space. 

Melissa and Chris shared their first dance to Sam Cooke’s “Nothing Can Change This Love”, a quintessential love song with a sweet message.

Congratulations to The Bride & Groom!
