Bonnet Island Estate in LBO Winter wedding bride and groom at their reception

Bonnet Island Estate Wedding

You know a wedding is gonna be brimming over with gorgeousness when the venue is Bonnet Island Estate. Bonnet Island Estate is located on Bonnet Island in Manahawkin, NJ. But don’t let that fool you, this is one of the crown jewels of LBI’s collection of wedding venues. And if I had my pick (and enough guests to fill it) I would have chosen Bonnet Island Estate for my own wedding. It is as stunning inside, as it is out! And what was one of my favorite things about Alyssa and Bob’s wedding, besides their venue choice? I love the time of year they chose for their wedding. December. A few weeks ago, I shared with you the inspiration for Alyssa & Bob’s big day, if you wanna check it out, here it is. All their planning came together beautifully.

One of my favorite elements of their day was the entrance decor and their seating chart. A few months ago, Alyssa had asked if I could recommend a calligrapher who could do a mirror seating chart. And, OMG, did Kelli at Wanderlove Press deliver! And the garland, bows, and floral swag by Every Bloomin’ Thing was stunning and a total show stopper! Every single person who entered saw it, stopped, and oohed and ahhed!

December is a time where so many people can get caught up in the holiday stress and the hustle and bustle. But it’s lovely to take an evening to celebrate the love of a happy young couple who promise to spend every holiday season with each other for the rest of their lives. Their families celebrated with them. It was such a pleasure working through out the planning process with the bride’s mom, Kelly. And it was such a joy to see a large family celebrate together!

Every wedding has a favorite moment for me. And at Alyssa & Bob’s wedding, it was their first dance. The smiles on their faces could be seen for miles!

The reception space was also brimming with gorgeousness. I will be blogging again in a few weeks about some of my favorite details. Everything from huge pine cone table numbers to gorgeous rustic centerpieces.

But for now, I want to share Alyssa and Bob’s sweet heart table. It was sooooooo pretty.

And on the sweetheart table… the custom vintage hand-stamped (with their wedding date) dessert forks I sent them as part of the Bogath Wedding and Events welcome package from Wooden Hive.


I also had a blast working with Jessica Erb from Jessica Erb Photography. And if these snap shots of her working are any indication, the final pictures are gonna be to-die-for. I can’t wait to share them with you!!!

  1. It was a magical day and everything was beyond what I imagined it to be. Jeanne I will forever be thankful for the day I stumbled upon your blog. You were incredible and I would recommend you to EVERY mother of the bride. I enjoyed every single moment of my daughter’s special day because YOU made sure I did and handled everything. I was so present in everything because I didn’t have to worry about any of the day of details. YOU MADE THE DIFFERENCE. Thank you so very much, Kelly Zuccarelli
