    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.

    Many guests said we had the best wedding ever!

    Leave it to Sand Castle for the best night of your life! My husband and I are so happy that we picked Sand Castle and it was an easy choice. We felt welcomed from the moment we contacted Sand Castle. Loula was very helpful and responsive to all our questions and concerns. Then we met Mohamed three weeks prior to the big day. He assisted us with the planning and made sure we had everything together. Thankfully, he was also very responsive via email. He actually surprised us on our wedding day with a refund for a few people who couldn't show up last minute, so we were super appreciative of that!

    We actually had a very hectic morning/afternoon on our wedding day, getting ready and celebrating with all the Chinese traditions. But once we entered Sand Castle, it was like all our worries withered away! As a matter of fact, my mom, dad, and brother actually got into a fender bender on their way to the venue and the driver didn't want to continue driving them to the venue. When Mohamed heard about it, he offered his car and said we can use it to go pick them up. We didn't use his car and two of our groomsmen went to get them, but I was so appreciative of the gesture.

    Once we walked into the bridal suite, I was approached by the bridal attendant, Pattie. She helped me relax and calmed my nerves. She helped me position my dress and veil for the photographer and my dress looked amazing in the photos! Everyone was super attentive and detail-oriented. We definitely felt pampered. They did their absolute best to make sure we were fed and drinking!! That brings me to the food. Although, I wasn't able to eat a lot of it, my guests all told us that the food at the venue was AMAZING. I actually got my dinner to-go and ate it the next day. It was still super delicious! We also had so much dessert left over from the Viennese and they packed it all for us. Our guests were also able to pack some home. The bar was also top-shelf and they served tasty cocktails! I have gone to a number of weddings/galas where the food was mediocre because the food were made in batches, but you will not have that experience at Sand Castle! Your guests will be well fed with an abundance of food during the cocktail hour and reception. They will most definitely enjoy their food!

    Lastly, I want to mention that we were offered a honeymoon package for Crete. Jamie helped us every step of the way with that process! :)
    Everyone there were so kind and helpful. They truly know how to make you feel like royalty! Highly recommend you check out Sand Castle! :) I was already recommending it to other couples at my wedding!! The wedding was more than 3 months ago, but people are still talking about it, saying it's the best wedding they've ever been to!
