    Best part? too hard to pick just one.

    It's hard to say what the absolute best part about hosting our wedding with NYIT de Seversky was. The groom's family, who loves historic places and beautiful architecture, would probably tell you it was the gorgeous mansion, well-maintained grounds, and picture-perfect ceremony location options. The guests would probably say the food-- there was so much food and every course was something you'd expect from a restaurant or award-winning caterer. As the bride, though, I think the best part was the endless support and expertise I had access to, and the immense flexibility and capability of the talent in house.

    I chose not to use a wedding planner, despite having a very busy work schedule and not being physically on Long Island most days of the month, because I got overly ambitious and way over-estimated how long I'd continue to find wedding-planning fun for. The only reason I didn't regret it? De Seversky made every idea I had a dazzling reality. Custom escort card displays... a surprise dragon dance during the cocktail hour (they hid at least a dozen children, two Chinese lion costumes, and at least 2 taiko-sized drums in a back room for me while we exchanged vows. What other venue can pull that off? What other planner?)... baskets of sandals and bathroom amenities and photo frames and candles/bud vase arrangements throughout the entire mansion! An epic take-out donut display. All without batting an eyelash. When I asked whether I should hire a coordinator, they told us "our brides don't typically get day of coordinators... some do, but most don't, and most don't regret it"-- they're 1000% right. Their staff knows their space and timesheets like the backs of their hands.

    Even better than that? They run a very tight ship in terms of timeline, meetings, responsiveness, simplifying payments. My parents are immigrants and their English is solid, but contract details can get confusing. The planning staff at De Seversky made all of us feel extremely in the loop and in control. Any time my mom wanted to call, drop by with a question, anything, Dana and Robert Jay would quickly get back to her. One thing I really appreciate is that when our headcount came in a little too high, it looked like we would need to use a different floorplan for where we had dinner. My florist had designed the centerpieces to highlight the tables on the edges of the room, however, and if we needed to change rooms, the redesign would have been last-second and very expensive. She was freaking me out, so I called Robert Jay to see if he could make it work, and he first calmed me down, assuring it would work, then had Dana and Jose, both superstars, put together a plan that probably wasn't as ideal spaciousness-wise, but it was what we needed. Dinner was a bit cozy, in the room we envisioned it in, and so so beautiful (and delicious! I still think about that shrimp garganelli pasta. Don't let them take that off the menu!!).

    I cannot think of a way in which NYIT de Seversky could be trumped. It is delicious. beautiful. authentic. professional. These people know hospitality, and they will take care of you like fairy godparents. It isn't cheap, but it did save me at least $5K in wedding planning/coordinating costs, so that's considerable too.

    One of a kind and beyond a pleasure to have host our wedding

    Robert Jay, Dana, Jose, and Melissa were phenomenal with making our wedding run smooth. We had so so so much fun and didn’t miss out on a thing!!

    Gatsby style format was the way to go for a large number of guests. It’s essentially a cocktail hour style dinner.
