    Hempstead House - Incredible Venue & Service

    Philip Stone Caterers & The Hempstead House did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding!! The venue itself is gorgeous, and such a unique place. Emily and Moe are the best, they were super helpful and answered all of our questions. We had no worries leading up to the wedding, as we knew they would knock it out of the park - and they did! The food is excellent, the service is amazing, and the whole team was so great to work with!!

    Unique and out of this world

    By far the best and unique venue in Long Island. The views are stunning, the Hempstead House made guests speechless and I continue to receive feedback from friends and family that it was the best wedding venue they have ever attended. My wedding photos are better than I imagine. Emily and Moe were on top of their game the entire wedding day and ran the show like you would not believe. I am happy and blessed that we were able to have a wedding that was unique, gorgeous and out do this world. The cocktail hour outside was a huge hit and the food was outstandingly delicious. Highly recommend!
