waterloo village wedding

From the “off-season” price drop to the romantic colors of autumn, it’s easy to see why October and November are becoming popular months to say “I do.”

Peak wedding season runs from late spring to early fall, but more and more local couples are choosing to tie the knot later in the year.

Getting married in the fall also means you’ll have unbelievably gorgeous wedding photos and videos. The changing leaves and colorful fall foliage in this part of the country provide the perfect backdrop for your big day.

Whether you’re looking for historic charm, rustic beauty, or modern elegance, here are some visually stunning venues to host fall weddings in New Jersey.

The Palace at Somerset Park (Somerset, NJ)

Autumn trees provide the perfect color contrast for this venue’s all-white, neo-Palladian exterior. The Palace at Somerset Park boasts lush, year-round greenery and exquisite gardens, so no matter when you hold your wedding, you’re sure to get an incredible view.

The Marigold (Somerset, NJ)

Charming and sophisticated, The Marigold has everything you need for an outdoor fall wedding photo shoot. Your photographer can snap portraits and candids in the gardens, on the patio, in front of the gazebo, and outside the beautiful venue itself.

Mountain Creek Resort (Vernon, NJ)
