Here in Ocean County, we're certainly not lacking for scenic places to have memorable events. This past weekend, I attended a wedding at one of the nicest locations I've been to yet.

Bonnet Island Estate is about 3/4 of the way over the bridge to Long Beach Island, in Manahawkin. As you'd expect from a location like that, the ocean and bay views are outstanding. They've got it positioned perfectly with marshland, a quaint outdoor barn for ceremonies, and a lovely indoor setup as well.

One of the things that I enjoyed was the fact that it's not a gaudy, cookie cutter catering hall. A lot of times, you get inside of a venue and they're all the same - big, open rooms, and not a whole lot of character.

But this place was small and had a lot of personality. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
