When Katydid Floral Design and Signature Events reached out to us this past Fall about shooting a whimsical stylized session, we just couldn't say no. Divine Park in Spring Lake sits just across the street from the floral boutique and had the perfect little nook for our beautiful set up. Vintage chairs, china, and petal pink antique glasses brought an elegant rustic touch that transformed the space from plain to extraordinary. Our stunning model (and florist Kate Duffy's daughter), Grace Kendall Young, looked straight out of a woodland fairytale in her dress from Waterlily, topped with a handmade duster loaned from a friend that morning. Her hair and makeup was artfully styled by Natascia Bellis of Colorbar. Flowers fresh from the markets in New York City were designed by Katydid and placed on the tiny table. The gorgeous champagne ribbon taffeta cloth from Party Rental Ltd added that extra elegant flare. And finally, for a special touch of fantasy, we included the peacock couple from Wildlife Taxidermy. The resulting images took our breath away.
Special thanks to Julia Claire Wagner for helping photograph the day!
It is always a treat to visit one of our favorite Weddings of Distinction venues The Bonnet Island Estate. Even in the winter there is something so deeply tranquil about the location with its bay views abundant wildlife and gentle breezes. To make things even more blissful we were joined by some of the most talented vendors as they created a feast of inspiration for the bride and grooms to be. Merri-Makers Catering offered up exquisite food & service. Stephanie Somodi owner of Designing the Most Inviting Day showcased a beautiful variety of invitations from rustic seaside bliss to black tie elegance. The truly talented floral team at MDS Floral Designs created an amazing range of tabletops from French Country to crystal & blue beach chic. The Cake Studio of Ocean City impressed us with his detail and imagination. Kate Duffy of Signature Floral & Event Design by Katydid outdid herself once again with tables of modern romantic elegance and rustic country charm. Thank you to the exceptional staff of The Bonnet Island Estate for creating another memorable experience.
Alison & Bill meet in high school, they both ended up at Monmouth University where their friendship turned into something more. He proposed at the beach in West End where they spent so much time while they were in school. The two could not have been happier on their big day!

We were so honored to attend the first tasting at Mallard Island Yacht Club, the new sister estate to our beloved Bonnet Island Estate! Right on the water on Barnegat Bay this stunning 18,000 square foot yacht club is just divine. A charming boathouse with a stacked stone fireplace stands at the end of the pier, a perfect place for a romantic ceremony. Every detail, like the boathouse's wavy pane glass windows and pumpkin-pine flooring that were taken from a 1600's farmhouse, is absolutely exquisite.
In the main ballroom the dramatic Tiffany blue ceiling creates old-fashioned romantic atmosphere. Katydid Florist the arrangements for this table very clean and modern in design, with a strong black white and green theme in vintage silver vases.
We just loved the Groom's Shack which has a 'colorful' history as an army barracks and clam shack. With its rustic leather and tartan chairs and nautical theme it is just the place for a boys club. Below, MDS Floral Designs provided a Mackenzie-Childs inspired tabletop with sunflowers, yellow roses, and purple accents.
With showcases from some of our favorite vendors like MDS Floral Designs and Katydid Florist and exquisite food by the nationally renowned Merri-Makers we are just so excited to shoot there this summer!
