Our collection of grand estate properties is designed for a singular purpose, to host the most distinguished of wedding celebrations. Our unparalleled service will ensure the bride and groom, their families and their honored guests, an unforgettable experience.



Our plantation style estate features picturesque waterfront views, seasonal florals and an intimate Boathouse Chapel. Step inside our estate to experience the elegantly appointed reception rooms, majestic ballroom and luxurious private guest suites.

Our private coastal island is sure to make your wedding day a memory that will last a lifetime.



Our immaculate Bridal Parlor is the perfect place for the Bride and her best girls to get their hair and makeup done. Spend the day in the Bridal Parlor sipping champagne and getting pampered – an experience sure to make any bride feel extra special on her big day.



The Groom and his best men will gather to get ready in our nautically inspired Groom’s Lounge, overlooking the Boathouse Chapel. The Groom’s Lounge exudes rugged luxury with comfortable leather chairs, a big screen television and an in-suite bathroom.



A true gem of the Bonnet Island Estate venue is its quaint timber-framed Boathouse Chapel, transported and lovingly reassembled, beam-by-beam, from New England. Rustic barn doors swing open allowing gentle bay breezes to pamper guests. Sophisticated, elegant and romantic, the Boathouse Chapel is the perfect setting to say, “I Do.”



Sip Champagne and enjoy tasty morsels while overlooking the natural wildlife marshes and full panoramic views of the bay. Or, step inside our Estate where oak floors and cozy couches transport you to another world. Truly a cocktail hour like no other.



Bonnet Island Estate’s majestic Ballroom boasts 30-ft high cathedral ceilings that soar into the sky, resembling the inverted hull of a classic sailing ship. Floor to ceiling windows allow the beauty of the bay and stars to peer in while guests become lost in the moment. With seating for 250 of your closest friends and family, our elegant Ballroom will have your guests dancing the night away.



A grand staircase and exquisite scissor-gated elevator lead to 12 private bedroom-suites, including junior and master bridal suites. Each room is uniquely decorated and made complete with all the modern conveniences; in-room fireplaces, Jacuzzis in each bath and balconies with one-of-a-kind views. While staying at Bonnet Island Estate, keep your eyes peeled for historic artwork and relics from its original home as a duck hunting lodge.


Bonnet Island Estate has a site fee to reserve the estate and a separate fee from the exclusive caterer for all food and beverage.  For the site fee you have two options to reserve the estate: renting the entire estate or renting the estate for a five-hour event plus the onsite ceremony in the Boathouse Chapel. The site fee includes use of the estate, the tables and chairs that are in the Ballroom for your reception, and the chapel if you wish to have your ceremony on property.
