A Rustic-Chic Wedding at Johnson's Locust Hall Farm in Jobstown, New Jersey

Allie Corwin (25 and an events coordinator) and Will Johnson (26 and a farmer) met on his family's farm, where they both worked in the summer during high school. So when they tied the knot, they couldn’t think of a more appropriate spot. “Our farm had recently been approved to host weddings, and you could say that ours was the trial,” Allie says. “The farm is not only the place where Will and I met but also where we now live and work.” Before getting engaged, the couple moved to California for six months. For their wedding, Allie and Will blended elements that spoke to their stint on the West Coast with elegant down-home details to create a chic, laid-back affair with plenty of personal flair. The day kicked off with a ceremony overlooking the farm’s quaint pastures, the vibrant green fields setting the tone for the rest of the decor. Allie and Will exchanged vows under a handcrafted arch that his grandfather had made. Featuring curly branches and cascades of green amaranthus, the arch gave the proceedings a whimsical quality, heightened by the mix-and-match wooden chairs that dotted the ceremony aisle. After saying “I do,” the couple and their guests headed to the farmhouse for an alfresco fete. “We wanted our tableware to be fresh, white and simple so the centerpieces would stand out,” Allie says. The centerpieces were an eclectic mix of blown glass vases, vintage bottles, potted succulents and bundles of wheat, thistles and wildflowers that captured the rustic feel of Johnson's Locust Hall Farm in Jobstown, New Jersey. Bistro lights twinkled overhead, casting a warm, ambient glow over the enclosed country courtyard. Toscano Ristorante highlighted ingredients from the farm, such as corn, tomatoes, raspberries and cider doughnuts. A retro lounge complete with surfboards, guitars and 1970s furnishings paid tribute to the couple’s California days. “One of my favorite moments was when all my cousins and siblings stood up during dinner and sang to Will and me,” Allie says. “No one in my family can sing, but we always put on plays, concerts and games when we’re together. They rewrote the lyrics to “American Pie” to sum up Will and me as a couple. They handed out beautiful copies under the dinner plates so guests could sing along.” —Libby MacCarthy
