Today :: Melissa and Adam's Rustic Barn Wedding :: New Jersey Wedding Photographers

Updated: May 6

November 2022 was such a long time ago, yes, I know. Eventually, I will get up to date on my wedding and engagement blogs.

When it comes to weddings, there is something truly magical about November. As a photographer, I have had the privilege of capturing countless love stories throughout the years, but there is always a special charm that comes with November weddings. From the warm colors of autumn to the cozy atmosphere that surrounds these celebrations, there is no doubt that November is a dreamy time to tie the knot.

Melissa and Adam said I Do, after six years together, in an intimate setting at the beautiful Bishop Farmstead in Southampton, NJ. The venue is a vintage barn, which was built in 1932 and sits on over twelve acres complete with wildflowers and butterflies. The couple decided on a first look, which we did at a little secluded garden area. Melissa said it was the favorite moment of the day as it was something special just the two of them (and me) shared.

The Allure of Autumn

As the last leaves fall gracefully from the trees, the landscape transforms into a breathtaking canvas of warm hues. November weddings offer a unique opportunities for New Jersey Wedding Photographers to incorporate the beauty of nature into every frame. From stunning golden backdrops to rustic outdoor venues, the autumnal charm adds an extra touch of romance to the photographs. During cocktail hour, which was set up outside in a heated tent as well as on the first floor of the barn, we stole the couple away to take a few pictures in the field. Just look at this fall setting and the beautiful sky behind them.

Embracing the Coziness

November weddings have a way of making everyone feel cozy and comfortable. The chilly weather provides the perfect excuse for couples and their guests to snuggle close and share intimate moments. From stealing kisses under a cozy plaid blanket to gathering around a roaring fireplace, the ambiance is unparalleled. JAM Catering (Jeffery A Miller) did such an amazing job of having cozy blankets, heat towers, and firepits later in the event. As a photographer, I relish capturing those candid shots, where the love and warmth between the couple and their loved ones truly shine through.

Something unique that I've never experienced before? Right before Melissa walked down the aisle, you heard her voice over the sound system with a message for Adam. It was so special and it hit me in the feels (I was also 5 months pregnant with twins at the time, so a little more emotional than usual). You could tell the message was so meaningful to Adam as he greeted his bride with tears in his eyes.

November weddings hold a special place in my heart; the romantic atmosphere, the warm colors of autumn, and the cozy ambiance create a backdrop that is simply unparalleled. It is a privilege to be a witness to these beautiful love stories and to capture the magic that unfolds during a November wedding. From the creative lighting opportunities to the intimate moments shared, every click of the camera allows me to freeze those cherished memories for eternity and tell a story filled with love, warmth, and gratitude.

Without further ado, here are more from Melissa and Adam's wedding.

What a joy it was to photograph you on this special day. I hope your years are full of happiness and love!
