Amazing!!!

Special thanks to the entire team at Sand Castle. Everyone was and continues to be so amazing. From the start of venue tour until the very end when our event was over. Words can not even express my husband and my sincerest gratitude. Special thank you to Emily and Justin. My wedding guest arrived still talking about how wonderful and attentive they were. Thank you to you both. Also Special thank you to Jamie. Although we had limited communication, when I reached out to her, she answered every question and made sure everything got done. Marten, also was so amazing. He is so friendly. He made my family, feel so welcomed. He was so attentive to my nieces (flowergirls). During the rehearsal he took time with my nieces to show them what the had to do. Frank, Mr. Smooth himself, he made sure those tiny details we didn't think about were added. The details I did think about and wasn't sure how to pull off, he had a solution. Thanks Frank. The ultimate THANK YOU to Loula. Words truly can not express our genuine gratitude. She answered every question, every concern. She put out any fires that came up. She literally works 24/7, on vacation, on her days off. Loula we love and appreciate you so much. We are so glad we chose this amazing place to have our wedding. 4 weeks later and our guest are still talking about our wedding. Thank you again to the entire Sand Castle team.

Best Venue on Long Island

Could not ask for a better venue! From start to finish, everything was perfect. The Sand Castle staff took care of everything from the first minute until the last. We were free to enjoy the party with no worries. Everything was handled by them. The flow of the party was great. The guests commented repeatedly that they loved everything about the Sand Castle! I will be recommending it to friends and family! Thank you for making my daughter’s wedding everything we had hoped it would be.

Everything about Sand Castle is PHENOMENAL!!!

Sand Castle is hands down THE BEST! Like nothing we have ever experienced before. I have had FOUR different wedding dates thanks to COVID and then also got pregnant in the midst of all the rescheduling. Sand Castle and Moe still handled everything and was able to accommodate all changes even throughout the craziness of the pandemic and all of the ever changing COVID mandates and restrictions. We were the last rescheduled wedding due to COVID and we went out with a bang! Everything about this place is phenomenal!!! Do not underestimate how important ONE WEDDING at a time is. That means their staff is only focused on you and your loved ones. They are AMAZING! I cannot say that enough. The venue, the food, their vendors (Genesis Event and Camelot Limousines) all excellent. We could not have asked for a more perfect day. Our family and friends keep telling us our wedding was the best they’ve ever been to. They even give you food to take home. And I mean A LOT of food (not just the Bride and Groom’s entrees). We love Sand Castle. We’d throw any event there anytime! Now we can only hope someone we know gets married there so we can go back as guests.
