Destination Venues In Your Back Yard! – Weddings of Distinction

Tips, Wedding & Party Advice

With the most ideal aspects of class, grace, and beauty, if you are searching for an incomparable destination style wedding, while avoiding the extensive journey to get there, you must know about Weddings of Distinction. With their excellent collection of awe inspiring venues, couples can choose from amazing beachfront mansions to a gorgeous country estate or a classic ballroom, each of which exhibit uncompromised excellence and are guaranteed to create unforgettable memories.

Over the past few years, we have sporadically performed at various Weddings of Distinction venues, but it was not until this past Spring and Summer that our BVTLive bands began to performed at their venues more often. The collection of venues by Weddings of Distinction are located in New Jersey and include the Bonnet Island Estate, Mallard Island Yacht Club, and The State Room at LBI, all located in the Long Beach Island and Manahawkin, areas, as well as The Ashford Estate in Allentown, and The Mercer Ballroom in Hamilton.

Mallard Island and Bonnett Island are bayside Mansions offering amazing views, while the State Room is located just off the sandy shore of Long Beach Island. The Ashford Estate is more of a Country Estate Mansion, located in central New Jersey. All of the venues, unlike most Mansions, include beautiful, spacious ballrooms, capable of fitting even our largest bands, including Jellyroll and the Sid Miller Dance Band.

Merrimakers is the exclusive caterer of the Weddings of Distinction properties, and their top of the line food, as well as consummate service and respect, always ensure an incredible experience for all. Our bands look forward to performing at these venues as the staff treats everyone, from our musicians to the guests of honor, with the highest level of respect and truly care about making sure that each and every event is perfect and will ensure an unforgettable once in a lifetime memory.

Here are a few reviews from some of our clients who we worked with at some of the lovely Weddings of Distinction Venues:

The Ashford Estate: Lauren and Louis Cote Wedding – June 14, 2014 – Bride

The Sid Miller Dance Band was a whole other level of amazing! They sounded so fantastic that people couldn’t wait to get into the ballroom! I don’t think the dance floor was not packed for a split second! They played everything perfectly and sounded and acted so professional! I couldn’t have had a better experience and band! We loved The Sid Miller Dance Band!!!


The Ashford Estate: Pasquarella – Cannon Wedding – October 18, 2014

Thank you for an amazing night! You and the band delivered on all of our expectations and more! We had an amazing wedding and a huge part of that was thanks to Strangers! We enjoyed getting to know you and Rick. Best of luck in the future! We will be sure to recommend you to our friends with any upcoming weddings.

All the best,
Amanda and Eric
