I had a very specific idea for my wedding and no other venue was fitting that idea. My husband and I wanted a Halloween theme in a Mansion setting and the de Seversky was the PERFECT match. When I first walked in I knew instantly that it was the place for our wedding. Working with Jessica and Ana was an absolute pleasure. Everyone was very accommodating and helpful through out the entire process. The day of the wedding was magical and gorgeous. We didn't have to worry about one thing the entire day. It is also the most amazing location for pictures, you truly feel like it's your home for the day. All of our guests were raving about the food and the service. It's truly one of those dream venues that transports you to a different time.
ABSOLUTELY PHENOMENAL IN EVERY WAY!!!! My fiancé and I dreamed of a Gatsby-esque mansion style reception and ceremony with a focus on great food and drinks. The NYIT De Seversky mansion turned our vision and ideas into the wedding we dreamed about.
Our coordinator Ana Garcia was extremely helpful from the first day we stopped by the mansion. She has not only been very responsive, personable, accommodating, but she was a integral part in making our dream wedding come true. I cannot say enough good things about Ana and the entire staff at De Seversky and they are truly a cut above the rest. When Ana wasn’t available Jessica or another staff seamlessly stepped in to help if they were able to. The care, attention to detail, service, quality of food, coordination assistance, and personalization is worth every penny. Ana and the rest of the staff made us feel like family and they went above and beyond at every moment in the journey.
During our reception on September, 6th 2015 we felt like rock stars and received service that exceeded any of top restaurants or hotels that we have stayed in. Our Matire D’ Jonathon was also more than we could have ever asked or hoped for. He was enthusiastic when needed, calming when needed, and seemed to think of things we never thought of. Not only was the day flawlessly orchestrated, but he also ensured that our every question or request was fulfilled near immediately. I can confidently say that they created the most extravagant and enjoyable day of my life and people have said it’s the best wedding they’ve been to.
One last thing we valued was a LGBT friendly venue and staff, which De Seversky excelled at.
In summary you can spend months visiting and researching almost every venue on Long Island or in Manhattan, but you will never find a place that will top the service, value, quality, love, and attention to detail that you will receive from the staff at the NYIT De Seversky mansion. Look no further!
Mike & Frank,
What a night to remember! Thank you so much for the review; words can't begin to explain how much we enjoyed working with the two of you! Don't forget this is your home... we hope to see you back again soon!
Ana and the de Seversky Family!
My husband & I chose NYIT DeSeversky Mansion for our wedding in August 2015. It was everything we could of wished for and more! The staff here is wonderful. We worked with Jessica and she helped us with everything from beginning to end. I love her! We were blown away at our food tasking with Chef Rob Neumann. We knew we were in great hands. His food is amazing!! Guests are still talking about it! Joan was my bridal attendant and she went above and beyond to make sure I was taken care of. Jonathon was the maître d - the entire day ran smoothly. We chose the European style reception and guests really enjoyed moving through the different rooms of the mansion. The outdoor fire pit area was a big hit! If you are looking for a stunning location with great food & professional service, then this is your place!
We got married at de Seversky on August 8, 2015. From our initial visit to the day after the wedding, I cannot say enough good things about this place. I am going to sound like the broken record here, but these guys are true professionals. Ana, our contact was incredible from start to finish. Jonathan, who replaced Damien as of recently, was excellent. All my family was raving about him.
I really have nothing bad to say about this place. They are flexible and will work with you on any of your requests and offer their thoughts if that is something you are looking for.
The food, oh the food. I am seriously still dreaming about our dinner. I missed the cocktail hour, but I heard two dozen compliments on all the food these guys put out.
We are so so happy that we went with de Seversky to celebrate our magical day. We had 115 guests with dinner in the ballroom. It was perfect. Our ceremony was held in the garden room and everyone followed to the library and the other room for cocktail hour. Guests really enjoyed visiting all the rooms.
I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a unique place with a lot of history to celebrate your wedding day.
Thank you so so so much de Seversky crew. It was a pleasure working with you all!
Mila & Matt,
Thank you for the absolutely amazing review... we enjoyed working with you so very much! Roberto shared your pictures with us and they are stunning! I'm so happy we were able to capture that Gatsby Style theme in a traditional setting you were looking for!
Ana and the de Seversky family!
The first thing I thought of when the night was over was, I want one of my friends to get married here, so I can be at another wedding here! Oh, how I wish I can go back and do the whole day over again because I loved this venue so much, and the pictures were amazing. All of our guests were astounded by the beauty of the mansion and the quality of the food. My husband and I, plus our bridal party, and even some of our vendors could not stop raving about our banquet manager, Johnathan. I didn't know this until after, but Johnathan had only started a few weeks before at de Seversky, but had done a ton of weddings before. He was definitely on top of everything.
I could also have not asked for a better sales associate. Ana was so professional, but also super down to earth. She was quick to respond to all of my emails and phone calls, really organized, and made planning there really easy. All the girls there were helpful and really friendly.
I found one of the most helpful things was putting together a list of everything you're bringing to the venue ahead of time, with a description of where it goes, and the times it should be used/displayed, if it's not going to be set up from the beginning. I did this (minus the times thing) and it coincided with the list that de Seversky had which made the drop off really easy.
de Seversky might be one of the island's most expensive venues (why I got married on a Thursday!!!) but it was most definitely the worthy splurge of our wedding day. The service and the beauty are unparalleled. You won't regret getting married here!
If you're looking for "not your typical wedding hall", this is absolutely the place. We got married at de Seversky on May 16 and it was honestly perfection. From the staff to the scenery to the FOOD!! Everything was unbelievable. And one of the greatest parts is its your home for the day. We couldn't recommend de Seversky more.
Simply love them. Jessica has been my pseudo wedding planner from the start and I can't tell you how helpful, kind, and understanding she has been. Sometimes I feel like I'm asking a ridiculous amount of questions but she has no problem with answering any of them or making me feel special. The venue itself is just absolutely stunning and exactly what I was going for so I couldn't be more pleased.
AMAZING! If you want to have a one-of-a-kind wedding, this is the place to book! This venue is like nothing else on Long Island, you literally feel like you own a mansion for the evening! They do one wedding at a time and the grounds are breathtaking! The food and service are unbelievable!
Everyone we worked with was amazing. The food was delicious and the staff made it VERY easy for any guest with dietary restrictions. The mansion and the grounds were beautiful.
As soon we pulled up and could see the mansion in the distance, I knew this was the venue for us. Even the drive up is gorgeous! The outside, grounds and surrounding area are well manicured and so classic. The inside of the mansion is breathtaking. We chose to do a European style reception which I was a little nervous about because it's different from the norm but our guests (and us) LOVED having the sit down dinner in the beautiful ballroom uninterrupted by dancing. And it really made the night so exciting moving from space to space as the reception progressed.
The food at the mansion is outstanding! Our wedding was 6 months ago and we are still hearing from friends and family how amazing and plentiful the food was. The mansion hit cocktail hour out of the park. We opted for the higher priced liquor package and it was worth it. Our guests couldn't believe the bartenders were pouring Macallan etc. Dinner was incredible and the service was beyond anything us and our guests have ever experienced. It was true white glove service. Dessert was spectacular too and our guests went nuts over the waffle ice cream bar not to mention it smelled so amazing.
In terms of the service team, I can't say enough about them. Jessica and Ana helped us plan the wedding and were both super helpful and always available. Not one question went unanswered and they always made sure we were fully satisfied. Virigina was our maitr d' and her team was perfection as well. They had a timeline of our evening and executed it perfectly. Joan was literally trailing my husband and I during cocktail hour with a plate of hors'de ovres so we were able to enjoy cocktail hour as well. During dinner and dessert, we had everything we needed and more. As did our guests.
The night was perfect and I could not recommend this venue more. It was truly the best wedding in the perfect, elegant setting.
Absolute perfection. I had my wedding here a little over a week ago. The venue is gorgeous and really provides a beautiful backdrop for photographs. The food was also elegantly presented and DELICIOUS. I received so many compliments. Working with the staff was easy. I'm very detail oriented and a bit of a pain. Jessica was so gracious in dealing with me and my mother, and accommodating our last minute changes etc. I couldn't have asked for anything else. I really had my dream wedding here for such a reasonable price. I highly recommend this venue to all potential brides, it was truly a magical experience.
I went to school here and remembered loving this building and more than anything loving the food. NYIT de Seversky Mansion staff was spectacular! This is not their first rodeo. Never once we had to ask for anything on the day of. If I was thinking of it, it appeared in front of me. A snow storm decided to blow in on the day of and to make sure we got our pictures outside they snow blowed the area we going to walk in. We had a lot of little things go wrong that day, thats inevitable (not because of NYIT) but through the normal stuff of wrangling any large group of people but the staff at NYIT de Seversky Mansion made it as stress free as possible and everyone still compliments on how much fun they had at the wedding!
Every aspect of my wedding at the de Seversky Mansion was flawless. From the pre-planning, to the week of and then the actual day were top-notch. The staff was attentive, the food was phenomenal and the venue was picture-perfect. I could not have asked for anything more.
All of our guests enjoyed the night and several said it was the perfect wedding. We fell in love with de Seversky when we first saw it and were thrilled that the venue only did one wedding at a time. We received countless compliments on the food and the decor. The staff was responsible and did a great job at looking after the bridal party and the guests. We would highly recommend the venue.
Damien was our maitre' d and he made sure that the day went smoothly from the setting up of vendors, to the ceremony, cocktail hour and reception. Our point person was Ana, she answered every question we had and was patient with us throughout the process. We were able to plan our wedding within 4 months because of the wonderful staff at de Seversky and their suggested vendors.
The de Seversky Mansion is an amazing venue to have your wedding. The grounds are spectacular, the food offering and quality was deletable, and you are treated with VIP service from the start and end of your celebration. We highly recommend!!
Damien and Virginia made our night just perfect. Exceptional venue. Everyone loved this location. Would do it all over again. Highly professional staff. My groomzilla was extremely satisfied! :)
