The Island Grille and Celebration Cottage
The Island Grille built Celebration Cottage in 2014. Our venue is the only public oceanfront wedding venue in the Atlantic Beach area. Catering to events from 20 guests to 200 + Celebration Cottage is run by General Manager Amiee Scott and Executive Catering Chef Denise Greer.
Celebration Cottage looks like a house from the outside but, instead of bedrooms, we offer on level one 2 bridal suites and a massive party deck overlooking the ocean. Level two offers a large dining room and commercial kitchen. All food is prepared on site and menus are written individually with the wedding party.
Celebration Cottage was built to be a catering venue for The Island Grille. Therefore, we are the only caterers who work here.
Therefore a both of Celebration Cottages packages offer venue and catering by us. You can stop here and book package number one, Venue & Catering only or you can book package 2. Package 2 is an all inclusive package that covers everything except photographer, floral arrangements and officiant.

Zena started her Wedding and Event Planning journey almost a decade ago. Beginning at Bluewater Vacation Rentals as their Event Planner, planning events for the Islander Hotel and all Bluewater Vacation Rental Houses and gaining tons of hands on experience. After a few years, and after the birth of her second baby, she decided to make a change and start her own Coordination Company. Still managing events for Bluewater, but also branching out to other venues in the area, like the Celebration Cottage (one of their packages includes our Coordination services!), Zena was able to grow KAST into what it is today! She has a passion for having fun, making people laugh and is known for keeping calm in tough situations. Her team has planned, coordinated and executed over 500 events to date, of all types and sizes. At any given time there are five or six talented planners, coordinators and designers on staff and ready to help make any event just a little more....enjoyable.
MY PHOTOGRAPHY STYLE?
IT'S REAL, GENUINE AND AUTHENTIC.
I WANT YOU TO BE THE BEST VERSIONS OF YOU, AND I WANT THE WHOLE WORLD TO SEE! I'LL DO ANYTHING TO TRY AND GET YOU TO LAUGH, AS WELL AS DO JUST ABOUT ANYTHING IT TAKES TO GET THE SHOT! I LIKE TO KEEP IT SIMPLE, RELAXED AND FUN. I WANT TO BE WHERE YOUR HAPPY PLACE IS, BECAUSE IF YOU'RE HAPPY, THEN I'M HAPPY, AND THAT WILL SHOW IN THE IMAGES I CAPTURE. I LIKE TO FOCUS ON THOSE PRECIOUS, CANDID MOMENTS THAT OCCUR NATURALLY BETWEEN YOU AND YOUR LOVED ONES. MAKING YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA IS MY NUMBER ONE PRIORITY, AND NUMBER TWO YOU ASK. HAVING FUN! BECAUSE LIFE IS TOO SHORT TO DO ANYTHING BUT THAT!
