OHEKA CASTLE is an elegant wedding venue located in Huntington, New York. The property is Long Island鈥檚 only chateau venue, fitting in well with the extravagant mansions in the area. Built in 1919, the estate blends European opulence with American innovation, making it a luxurious wedding destination for couples for the past century.

Facilities and Capacity

The chateau is surrounded by immaculately manicured gardens and expansive verdant lawns. Regal fountains and tranquil ponds dot the estate grounds, an ideal backdrop for wedding photos. Engaged couples may hold their ceremony in the Formal Gardens, where they are sure to feel like royalty. There are three reception spaces included in every wedding for cocktail hours and receptions; the Grand Ballroom, Formal Dining Room, or Terrace Room. The original Otto Kahn Grand Ballroom, named for the estate鈥檚 founder, features intricate plaster molding and vintage decor, reminiscent of elaborate weddings from the previous century. Up to 200 attendees can be accommodated in the ballroom for banquet-style seating. The Terrace Room is a popular choice for receptions as it can seat 400 guests and its large windows offer beautiful views of the grounds. The estate has a private dressing room that the couple may use on the day of the wedding for the convenience of getting ready.

Services Offered

OHEKA CASTLE maintains a one-event-per-day policy, ensuring their staff is at the attention of all engaged couples who marry here. The estate appoints an event attendant to each wedding, who oversees the day鈥檚 festivities and can offer assistance to the happy couple. The events and catering teams here will guide you through the wedding planning process, aiding in vendor coordination and creating your catering menu and cake.

Accommodation

This venue has 32 refined guest rooms for wedding guests to avail of. Each room reflects the lavish lifestyle of Long Island鈥檚 Gold Coast residents in the 1920s. Overnight stays in the hotel include complimentary continental breakfast and luxury toiletries. The newlyweds will receive a overnight stay in one of the suites on their wedding night.

History

OHEKA CASTLE was built in 1919 by German-American investment banker and philanthropist, Otto Kahn. Kahn used the estate as a summer home in the 1920s and threw extravagant parties with guest lists of celebrities, politicians, and even royalty. After Kahn鈥檚 death, the estate eventually fell into disrepair. It was purchased in 1984 and lovingly restored to its original splendor. Today, it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Incredible!

    Had my wedding here and it could not have been more perfect! The venue is stunning, the staff are extremely professional and efficient, and the entire event felt like fairy tale come to life. I have nothing but the best things to say about all the staff that helped throughout the process from the visiting tour to check out the morning after. Alyssa is incredible and has the answers to everything wedding related, Steve is wonderful and set up the room block and morning-after breakfast for us, Kathy our banquet manager made sure the day went off without a hitch, Sam managed all the final details for the big day and took into account all the accommodations we required, Serena and Vinny did their utmost to make sure we didn't lift a finger on our special day and managed everything for us. Throughout all the planning there was always someone there to help answer any questions I had and everyone was very easy to get in contact with whether by phone or email. It never took longer than a day to hear back. If anything needed to be scheduled, whether a tour, tasting, cake design it was always done efficiently. All the staff were also incredibly kind and friendly. I never heard a bad word from them or felt any attitude or judgement. Instead they were super accommodating and truly tried their best to make our special day perfect. They even took into consideration all of our covid requests and precautions and made rescheduling our wedding from the year before a breeze. All our guests were stunned with the castle itself, the service throughout the event, the delicious dinner, gorgeous wedding cake and incredible dessert cafe. If you want to have your wedding in a truly magical venue, this is the place for you!

    Thank you Thank you

    We had our wedding ceremony and lunch at Oheka Castle and it was beautiful. The day was more than we could have asked for. Kathy and Kelly were a pleasure to plan, ensured everything went flawlessly, and I really appreciate how flexible they were. The staff was friendly and very responsive as well! Thank you to Chef Daniel who made a delicious custom cake!
