A Classic September Wedding at Bonnet Island Estate

We’re so excited to share Annie and Brendan’s swoon-worthy Bonnet Island Estate wedding. The day unfolded against the backdrop of this enchanting New Jersey wedding venue, which made for so much romance, sophistication, and timeless beauty! Nestled along the shores of Manahawkin, New Jersey, Bonnet Island Estate is one of our favorite NJ venues. Everywhere you look is picture-perfect, and the spaces come to life even more on wedding days with florals and details.

Annie kicked off her big day in the on-site bridal suite – total luxury vibes and views to die for. It set the stage for a day that was all about grace, beauty, and making memories in one of Jersey’s most sought-after wedding venues. She popped champagne with her girls and slipped into her timeless Amsale gown from A Little Something White. Then she made her way down to the gardens for a first look and portraits with Brendan!

One of the many reasons we love Bonnet Island Estate weddings is because of all of the natural beauty of the grounds. During portraits, a short stroll around the gardens provides lots of different backdrops which makes for a full and diverse gallery! The bridal party met the couple in the rose garden and the bridesmaids posed in front of the light blue chapel walls. The ladies rocked a deep champagne color, from Jenny Yoo.

After, the ceremony was a floral wonderland in the on-site chapel. Think refined shades of orange and pink, whites, and lush greens – basically, a flower-lover’s dream. Vows were exchanged, love was in the air, and the whole scene was straight out of a fairytale. The reception took place in the ballroom, which was transformed into an elegant haven, dripping with meticulous details and blooms. Tables were adorned with candles, elegant glassware, and florals that added timeless charm to the whole affair.

Annie and Brendan danced the night away, celebrating with loved ones at their Bonnet Island Estate wedding. Scroll to see all of the magic! If you’re searching for a dreamy, coastal, and elegant New Jersey wedding venue, you might find it here. And if you’re planning your special day, we’d love to work with you. Get in touch here!
