To the MerriMakers Team,

THANK YOU. For making our special day.. exactly that.. special. Through the planning process and day of services – everything was simply seamless and perfect.

Bonnet Island was the only venue on the table – a place I’ve dreamed of since I was a little girl – and it lived up to every expectation and more. The venue itself is breathtaking (even on a rainy day), the food and drinks were absolutely incredible, and the service was beyond exceptional. Ourselves, our families and friends have not stopped talking about our wedding and I don’t think we ever will.

Bonnet Island is in a different category of wedding venues – you truly go over the top in every way. Our wedding day was a dream and your team allowed us to truly enjoy every aspect of it. Steven and I truly appreciated the little moments you created just for us to relax and enjoy each other through all the excitement – our own little moment to snack and have drinks in the midst of photos, our own cocktail hour set up in the salon, our mid reception water break, and the most special… the bottle of champagne and all of our desserts set up in our room after the night ended. It meant so much to us.

So thank you again to the entire team who made our day a fairytale – especially our fairy godmother Mary who made all of our dreams come true.

We are beyond thankful and now drive over the bridge to LBI looking at Bonnet Island in a whole new special way.


Love and many thanks always —

The new Mr & Mrs Steven F.
