Larke and Jon hosted their intimate candlelit wedding at the Raritan Inn at Middle Valley, where a horse and carriage transported the couple and their guests from the ceremony to the reception held in a barn on the inn's property.

"We wanted it to feel as if the party was set in a clearing in the woods," says Larke. The barn was decorated with grapevines interwoven with twinkle lights and arrangements of dogwood and cherry blossoms. Dinner featured an assortment of dishes prepared with organic, locally sourced ingredients, including poached salmon with cucumbers, apricot-glazed ham, and fare from a create-your-own-pasta station.
