An Elegant Fall Wedding at Hamilton Farm Golf Club in Gladstone, New Jersey
Natalie Hogate (30 and a child life specialist) and Darren Griffith (32 and a real estate manager) used navy and soft shades of orange to accent their elegant fall nuptials. The bridesmaids wore matching floor-length navy dresses and carried baby’s breath bouquets. The couple wed beneath a birch arch decorated with sprays of orange, yellow and white blooms and greenery, and guests showered the couple in leaf-shaped confetti during the recessional. After an outdoor ceremony against a backdrop of fall foliage, the party moved inside for dinner and dancing. “We wanted to find a place that was a one-stop shop—where we could have the ceremony and blend right into the reception without traveling,” Natalie says of their venue. “We chose a to do a duet pairing because, as a couple, we always have food envy of each other’s meal,” Natalie says of the unique dinner menu. Guests dined on filet mignon with duchess potatoes and a ragout of brussels sprouts, butternut squash and roasted cipollinis.
