Bonnet Island Estate: Long Beach Wedding Location

Hey everybody!

I raved a little about this gorgeous wedding venue in yesterday's post, and today I get to share pictures! Bonnet Island Estate on Long Beach Island is such a dream!

But wait! I'm getting ahead of myself!  First I get to share these beautiful wedding details from Jon and Dorothy's wedding day.

Grooms-to-be: take note of Jonathan's tux. While it's an investment, it's so smart to get your own custom tux; not only will it fit right and look great, but over time it will pay for itself in saved rental fees!

Brides-to-be: Dorothy did an amazing job of coordinating her look for the big day.  Lots of sparkle and bling, particularly in her fabulous Christian Louboutins, brought her vision together and was such a polished and complete look .

Gah. These might well be my all-time favorite wedding shoes.  I die.

Now, back to Bonnet Island Estate... this ceremony location is gorgeous! Lots of white, open air, stone fireplace.  Just magical.

Dorothy's reception was just as breathtaking! They organized/named their tables to help guests find their seat.  Such a cute idea!

I just can't get over this ceremony site. Can you believe such a place actually exists? Can Cece have her first birthday party here? (just kidding, Mere of course already has that planned... haha!)

Another indoor shot of the reception location... as a photographer, you have to love all this window light!  Yes!!  I have a love for perfectly set rooms.

I also have a thing for cupcakes, but that's another story.

Here's the front of Bonnet Island Estate. What a statement.

Now that we've set the scene, it's time for the story of the day!  Come back tomorrow for that... but in the meantime, here's a sneak peek of one of my favorite moments:

Talk to you soon,
