Farm To Aisle: Lavender & Lace
Our next stop in our Farm To Aisle Series was Pleasant Valley Lavender which the name says it all because it truly is an "out of body" pleasant experience smelling fields of lavender! Who would have thought there's a lavender farm in NJ, but we found it and so have many others! This beautiful family owned ten acre farm property is quite photogenic and stunning to walk through not only visually but the smell of lavender is absolutely heavenly. During the late spring and early and mid summer months they offer guests to cut and bundle their own french and english lavender or they can cut and bundle it for you. Other lavender offerings are dried lavender, loose buds, handmade sachets, and a variety of handcrafted soaps, candles and delectable lavender honey produced by their beehives.
Offerings to brides? Well if your theme for your summer wedding reception is rustic elegance or vintage romance inspired, beautiful fresh or dried lavender are perfect for bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces and the list is endless to the different ways one can use lavender in wedding decor. The best part is that you can come and get it fresh or dried without hiring a florist! Also while you are there pick up some lavender sachets to stick under your pillow to lull the wedding planning stresses away, seriously it works:)
But wait.. there's more! Pleasant Valley Lavender is also the perfect scenic backdrop for engagement photo sessions and wedding photos and they permit your photographer to utilize their property for photography. There is a fee in order for your professional photographers to take stunning photos of you and your fiance' or bridal parties so please visit their website for fee information.
It was such a pleasure visiting Pleasant Valley Lavender we look forward to going back..just for the dreamy smell, it is so worth it!!
