Next stop, Bonnet Island Estate

Photo from Bonnet Island website

Bonnet is a perfect destination for a beach wedding with a rustic, quaint feel.

Bonnet Island Estate, 2380 E Bay Ave, Manahawkin, NJ 08050

Quick Facts:

  • You can rent the whole property for overnight in addition to the wedding

  • Ballroom can seat: 250 guests

  • 12 suites for overnight stays. Each varies in size and style.

  • Renting the entire estate will run you $16-25k depending on the day/season

  • This does NOT include the catering costs

Things we love:

  • There is a chic bridal salon right in the estate which makes for the perfect place to get ready.

  • The boathouse chapel looks like a beautiful barn and is the perfect combination of a beach and rustic setting. The gorgeous stone mantle offers a focal point that you can decorate as you’d like. The side walls/doors can be left open on a summer day and the photo opportunities are endless. There is a 2nd level in the barn with more seating and also a perfect viewpoint for photos.

  • The estate rooms are charming, each room with a different rustic touch.

  • The ballroom with the wood ceiling and huge walls of windows allows your guests to really enjoy the beautiful views.

  • The views from the master suite ahhh!!! You can’t beat waking up on your first morning as husband and wife with those views!

  • Similar to Mallard, your after party can be held right at the venue.

  • Although it is owned by the same group and just down the street from Mallard, the catering here is done by Merri-Makers.
