Yesterday’s unveiling was so fun we just had to do another appreciation post. This one is in deep gratitude for our owner, Jill Donovan. Each one of us at Donovan Manor and sister companies Donovan’s Dish and Jill’s Beach, feel the magic of this venue coming to life right before our eyes, and it’s all thanks to this Boss Woman right here and her Chef Angel watching over her! Thank you, Jill, for including us in your latest vision. Here’s to one step closer to Grand Opening! 🤗🥂

Mother-son moments leading up to the ceremony always get us good. In these precious moments, emotions run deep, and the unspoken words between a mother and son speak volumes. A simple tie adjustment or boutonniere placement can represent the culmination of years of love, support, and cherished memories.
Thanks to Emily Barbee Photography for capturing this moment and sharing it!
