We had a wonderful time this Sunday at the amazing Weddings of Distinction venue The Bonnet Island Estate. This beautiful private estate in Long Beach Island is a serene retreat for your wedding. Merri-Makers Catering with over 30 years of catering perfection offered a tasting for their brides to be. Chef McCann, winner of the national 2006 Chef of the Year by International Caterers Association, offered up a scintillating selections of appetizers, salads, entrees and deserts. Sweet favors by The Bake Works were handed out to guests. A selection of Weddings of Distinctions best vendors was also on hand to offer advice and show their products.
Katydid Signature FLoral & Event Design created a lush English romantic table with ivy details, mercury glass vases and silver candlesticks. The table paired beautifully with invitations by Stephanie Somodi of Designing the Most Inviting Day. Her classic nautical invites and new silk boxed invites are just stunning. For something different Katydid also created a modern ice blue table collection which we paired with Stephanie Somodi's gray raw silk boxed invitation with art deco mirror inserts.
Michele of the award winning MDS Floral Designs created open & airy table settings. Her first setting inspires romance with classic ocean pastels and elegant high orchid centerpieces. Another setting was a nod to rustic elegance with burlap table runners and blue antique bottles filled with sweet nosegays. Invitations by Stephanie Somodi completed the look with soft blue invites with beach details.
Magnolia Exquisite Florals & Event Design went for a rustic country feel with white washed lanterns and birch candles which paired wonderfully with Stephanie Somodi's formal invites in rust tones with tassel accents. For a different feel Magnolia also showcased a whimsical beach table with shell accents.
