  • Wedding: December 1969

Hi there. I am getting married and having the reception at westbury manor in April. We are getting marred at a Catholic Church in Westbury – St Brigids. It is simply lovely. There are lots of beautiful churches to choose from that are close by. If you just drive aroudn teh area you’ll pass them. Also there is Eisenhower Park. They have some beautiful spots. If I see or think of anywhere else I will get in touch.

Good Luck!!! And let me know if you find somewhere x

Try de Seversky Center (Old Westbury, NY). That’s where I’m getting married and having the reception there too. I’ve read that they rent out the place for weddings only too.

Zoe – I have been to a wedding reception at Westbury Manor and it was fabulous.  The food was really good and they had a great cocktail hour setup outside, which was beautiful.  But you probably already know this!!

I second either Eisenhower Park (I am getting married in November at The Carltun at Eisenhower Park and it is a huge park with lots of private areas) or de Seversky Center (I looked there for my wedding too and it is absolutley gorgeous but I have too many guests). 

I would also recommend Westbury Gardens.  I have heard great things about it.  My photographer (who I completely trust more than any of our vendors) suggested Westbury Gardens to take pictures before our wedding, so I am assuming it is beautiful.

With all of these LI brides, let us know if you need anything else!

Hi Zoe, I hope I am not too late to be helpful…

Gardens & Museums:

Coe Hall & The Planting Fields – Oyster Bay -They have outdoor and inside the mansion options

Bailey Arboretum – Lattingtown – They have a great outdoor setting, but for smaller indoor ceremonies the mansion has a terrific room with a fire place.

Westbury Gardens – Old Westbury – They have a special spot which they offer to tent to protect from rain and sun. I don’t believe there is an indoor option here.

Nassau County Museum of Art – Roslyn – A great site, with formal gardens including one with a huge Victorian iron work to frame the ceremony. (awesome location, mouse over "garden trellis")

Cedarmere – Roslyn Harbor – Former home of William Jennings Bryant. There’s a review of it on LIW that was very positive from one of the first brides to marry there since the county took it over.

Chapels:

Historical Chapel – Woodbury – The building comes with an officiant, and organist, but you can bring your own

CW Post Interfaith Chapel – This place I don’t know much about but my first ceremony there will be soon, so if you want more info just let me know. All the reviews have been very positive for smaller weddings.

Good luck and happy planning!
