Fall Wildflower Farm Wedding at Johnsons Locust Hall Farm Venue - Photo by Sara Fitz Co

This wedding is one I've been so excited to share for a while now! Melissa and Brad's fall wedding at Johnson's Locust Hall Farm in NJ was dreamy on so many different levels. First off, the team at the farm are honestly some of my favorite people to collaborate with. Not to mention, the 1700's era farm is so picturesque and full of historic charm with the old stone barns, sweeping meadows, flower fields, and orchards. Speaking of orchards, have you tried their delicious apple cider donuts?


Upon arriving at the farmhouse, the farm staff had left me extra floral clippings and some cool vintage pieces for me to style the couple's flatlay. The venue has such a family-run, community vibe and it's so welcoming. The florals are all done in-house, by Allie, and many of the pieces are foraged from their own land.

Another thing I love about this venue is the versatility of the reception space. The barns have the same historic stone facades that you find in my hometown area of Bucks County, PA, (which makes me feel right at home!) and there are lots of glass paned doors that let in the natural light and fresh air. It really makes the space feel like you've brought the outdoors in, which I am ALL for.

Allie, the venue's in-house florist, has such an eye for creative and unique floral designs. They feel very natural and organic alongside the vintage decor and furniture the venue provides.

Just before reception began, I took Melissa and Brad out into the flower field behind the barns for some sunset photos. Melissa and Brad were so gentle with each other's hearts the whole day. It was really nice to witness their soft, but deep love for each other in the way they held one another, and in the small smile Brad had any time he looked at Melissa being in her element.

I was in awe of this stunningly vibrant flower field. Since it was early fall, the flowers were a strong magenta color. The deep tones of purple and green created an amazing moody vibe as the sun was setting behind Melissa and Brad.

As the night was coming to a close, we headed onto the patio to take some playful shots of Melissa and Brad by the vintage photo booth bus. Their little daughter even hopped in for a few photos!
