Autumn Wedding Charm

The Raritan Inn Barn
 The arrival of beautiful Autumn in New Jersey was felt throughout every moment of this charming wedding last weekend at The Raritan Inn. The bride and groom rented The Inn Friday - Sunday, and so enjoyed a rehearsal dinner on the grounds, a full day and night of an amazing wedding celebration, and Sunday breakfast with close friends and family.

The picturesque B&B on The South Branch of the Raritan River includes a restored barn, with a warm wood interior. It is the perfect setting for a unique barn wedding experience that is rich in character. The landscape and property, including the river path to a riverside, perfectly private ceremony spot, leave guests feeling as though they have escaped to the country for the day.

Guests were greeted last Saturday and invited to enjoy Hot Mulled Local Apple Cider and Brewed Iced Tea as they wandered the river path. Then cocktail hour was enjoyed on a lawn behind the barn, with the working full bar set in the quaint "Fisherman's Shed".

Following a plated salad, buffet fare included Golden Roasted Chicken Breast with a Chestnut and Cornbread Stuffing, Pumpkin Ravioli with a Sage Brown Butter, a Spud Bar, Roasted Veggies and Artisan Breads.

A Java Bar was featured with the wedding cupcakes, and guests took away Terhunes Orchard Cider Donuts in personalized brown bags.

This October wedding was "spot on" in its delicious flavor of fall!!
