Another Exclusive Weddings of Distinction Collaboration: A Summer Tasting at Bonnet Island Estate

Exclusive, Distinctive and Festive: The Bonnet Island Estate- Manahawkin, NJ

It was a pleasure to serve all the brides and grooms and their families last week at the gorgeous Bonnet Island Estate. The Weddings of Distinction team,  along with Merri Makers Caterers, arranged for a private multi-course tasting to whet everyone’s appetite for their big day.

MMP collaborated with our friends from Portraits by the Bay, The Studio Photographers and Stephanie Somodi’s Designing the Most Inviting Day– for a delightful afternoon.

We gave out complimentary copies of Peter Merry’s The Best Wedding Reception Ever!, Tom Haibeck’s Wedding Toasts Made Easy and our most recent article 7 Ways To Bring The Wow and Have the Best Wedding Reception Ever which was published on WeddingWire.com’s notable Four Aces blog.

We look forward to helping all of the newly-engaged couples plan and produce one of the best days of their lives.

The weather held out for a lovely day at the stunning Ashford Estate.

It was a pleasure to meet all of the Brides, Grooms and their families as they toured the manicured grounds and enjoyed the fine cuisine of Merri-Makers Catering. The tasting was an excellent opportunity to talk to everyone in more detail about their upcoming wedding receptions at the Ashford and other Weddings of Distinction properties.

I gave out first edition copies of my new article, “7 Ways to Bring The Wow and Have The Best Wedding Reception…Ever!” I’m happy to report that it was very well received.    Look for its public debut soon on a few select social media outlets in the Wedding industry.

We had a few minutes to take some photos with a couple of the other Weddings of Distinction preferred professional resources before the event began.   We’re looking forward to teaming up soon for some exceptional events!    -mp

Weddings of Distinction: Marcello Attends Premier Tour of The Ashford Estate

Chances are if you haven’t heard about The Ashford Estate yet, it’s only a matter of time.   Exclusive venues like Bonnet Island Estate, Pleasantdale Chateau and Mallard Island Yacht Club have gotten most of the attention from discerning brides looking for private locations that feature tasteful opulence and exquisite attention to detail… Now, courtesy of visionary founder Chris Vernon’s latest masterpiece, The Ashford Estate is being offered to those fortunate enough to experience its grandeur.

The Weddings of Distinction Team with Marcello Pedalino (Center) in the library of The Ashford Estate: Ginny Connolly, Maggie McSorley, Meghan Jacobs and Steve Babbitt

Through the majestic gates upon entry yesterday afternoon, guests drove up the tree-lined pasture of the Allentown multi-acre estate enjoying the beautiful fall foliage that NJ natives cherish.   After a stroll though the grounds including a stop at the Conservatory, Reflections Pool, Library, English Gardens and Floating Gazebo, Vernon welcomed his guests in the Chapel. He moderated a brief creative counsel and officially introduced Weddings of Distinction to the V.I.P wedding professionals in attendance. Among the many industry notables were Kathi Evans from All The Best Celebrations and Erik Kent from NjWedding.com.

Like our Signature Event level offerings with entertainment and event productionWeddings of Distinction is a concept that encompasses the finest in locations, hospitality and customer service that New Jersey has to offer. Stay tuned for the recap of the Signature Corporate Event that Jason Jani and I produced for the New Jersey School Board Association at The Palace at Somerset Park which took place on Tuesday.

The Ashford Estate

The tour continued with a delectable dinner social back in the Conservatory with stations from Main Street, passed hors d’oeuvres by Merri-Makers and some refreshing mixology courtesy of Marsilios. We made our way up and throughout the tri-level mansion to get a sneak peak at the well-appointed guest rooms and simply divine bridal suite.  Each room features its own unique decor and personal touch of design pleasure.  Our excursion’s denouement took place at The Ashford’s Grand Ballroom.   From the graceful lines of the chiavari chairs to the well-thought out floor plan to the customized Fennelli lighting,  it’s a visually stunning combination of sophistication and luxury.

Naturally, The Ashford Estate, or a Wedding of Distinction at Bonnet Island is not an inexpensive proposition. Expect to invest upwards of $25,000 for the property rental alone in peak season.

For those who appreciate cachet, beauty, talent, experience, rarity or historical significance, you already know about  investments deemed priceless. Most brides and readers of this blog agree that a once- in- a-lifetime event falls under that category.

Ashford’s official website and facebook page will launch at years end.  Until then, for additional photos or to set up a private tour and design session at the Ashford, Bonnet or any of the Weddings of Distinction properties, contact me at your earliest convenience @ 732-547-1677 and we’ll set it up with the WD team.

Special thanks to Chris, Kathi, Ginny, Steve, Maggie and Meghan for their genuine warmth and hospitality.   The possibilities for future collaborations are very exciting.   -mp
