Fall is the most popular time of the year to get married and it's no wonder why. The foliage, the crisp air and golden light, the cozy atmosphere, and the fun décor options are just a few of the reasons why we love it. Enhance your fall wedding with these ideas!

A Cider Bar

Nothing says Fall like some fresh apple cider. Greet your guests with a Cider Bar to enjoy during the ceremony.

Blankets for the Ceremony

Although Fall is a beautiful season, it can get a bit chilly. Create a warm and cozy environment for your guests with blankets!

Rustic Signage

Add a cute personal touch with a welcome sign or directional signs.

Cider Donuts

'Tis the season for visiting your local farm cider for fresh donuts. Bring a piece of autumn tradition to your wedding with a Cider & Donut Bar!

Embrace Fall's Natural Elements

Sussex County is an autumn lover's dream. More specifically, Bear Brook Valley is an autumn lover's dream. From the bridges to the vineyard to the woods and trickling waterfalls, you get the best of fall in one place.

Fall-Inspired Signature Drinks
