A Colorful Wedding at The Barns at Perona Farms in Andover, New Jersey
Jenny Kuo (31 and a brand manager) and Jeffrey Chi (31 and a management consultant) met during college while attending NYU, but only started dating after they bumped into each other a few years after graduation. "We dated for about four years before Jeff proposed. We were on a weekend getaway to Ocean City, Maryland when he suggested we wake up early to watch the sunrise on the beach," says Jenny. "He proposed on the beach during sunrise, it was such a beautiful setting." The pair planned their wedding at The Barns at Perona Farms, but didn't want the typical barn wedding."Jeff and I wanted a place that wasn't the typical wedding venue -- traditional, gold, carpeted, etc.," Jenny says. "We were searching for something different and found it at The Barn at Perona Farms in Andover. We needed the venue to be within driving distance of NYC since most of our friends would be driving out from there." The barn was uplit with blue lighting, which gave the traditional rustic space new life. The color palette became gray, pale green, peach and ivory. "This venue was unlike any other venue we'd ever been to," says Jenny.
