New Jersey Wedding at Bonnet Island Estate


November 30, 2022

Leeann and Brendan met back in 2012 while in college. Ever since that moment, they have been together. Living life and experiencing every moment of it with each other. When I first met Leeann and Brendan it was apparent the immense amount of love that they had for one another. I even had the honor of capturing their engagement session in Hoboken a little while back. You can check those out here! From that point on, they have been thriving and enjoying every second of engaged life. It wasn’t until recently that their love and commitment to each other were sealed at their New Jersey wedding at Bonnet Island Estate. A stunning venue, a beautiful color palette, and amazing details made this such a beautiful day to capture.

Bonnet Island Estate

The Bonnet Island Estate is a beautiful coastal wedding venue in New Jersey. It has picturesque waterfront views, amazing greenery and florals, and an intimate boathouse chapel that will have your heart melting. It’s a private estate that gives you and your partner all of the privacy you and your guests could ever want for your wedding day. It’s beautifully decorated and is one of the more unique and well-put-together venues I have been to.

The Bonnet Island Estate offers some great amenities if you’re looking to host your wedding at this beautiful space. Some of those amenities include:

  • 250 guest capacity
  • Table and chair rentals in the ballroom space
  • ADA Accessible
  • Catering from Merri Makers

It definitely brings together that warm coastal feeling that so many couples love and enjoy. This is why this is a really great wedding venue if you’re a big fan of the beach. To read more about the Bonnet Island Estate, click here.

Leeann and Brendan stuck with a very coastal theme. Light blues and neutrals were tied in throughout all of their details, florals, and wedding party attire. It was perfectly fitting for the entire ambiance of the Bonnet Island Estate, so a major win-win. Their day consisted of two beautiful first-look moments. One with Leeann and their adorable pup, and one with her husband-to-be, Brendan. Both are very emotional and very cute. Their ceremony was inside the boathouse chapel located at the Bonnet Island Estate and it was just as beautiful as you could imagine. Standing in front of a beautiful stone fireplace surrounded by those who are near and dear to their heart. What could be better than that?

After the ceremony, cocktail hour was available which is when the drinks started flowing. Leeann and Brendan enjoyed some time with their guests before I whisked them away for some more portraits at golden hour. Shortly after, the reception started and I was just blown away by how beautiful it was. Stunning hues of blue tied in throughout all of the table placements and decor and just made everything look so elegant and put together. The night was spent dancing until feet turned blue, crying at the most touching speeches, and of course, enjoying the celebration of Leeann and Brendan.

Congratulations to the Kelly’s!
