A lifelong Dream Fulfilled

As a boy growing up on Long Beach Island, Christopher Vernon, founder of Weddings of Distinction, spent endless hours among the coastal bays and beaches. It was during this time, that he dreamed of sharing his love of the area’s beauty and serenity with others.

Weddings of Distinction and their unique venues are a labor of love, a fulfillment of a dream, a realization of a vision, a tribute to history and an adoration of nature.

These distinguished wedding venues combine the luxury of the present with the elegance of the past and are reminiscent of the Great Gatsby era offering a combination of historic grandeur and the modern amenities of today.
