    We had our September 17, 2016 wedding at the Hempstead House at Sands Point Preserve and it was absolutely incredible! Words cannot describe how stunning it was and how thrilled my husband and I were to have our wedding there. This is a truly breathtaking location and we were truly blessed with a perfect September day! This is definitely not a cheap venture and whatever you think it will cost....it will be more. This is not like a catering hall where it is very planned out for you - you have to do everything from lighting to picking silver and glasses to renting tables....I even made my own toiletry baskets for the bathroom! But that said....you can truly make it your own and my husband and I really enjoyed the ability to make our wedding exactly what we wanted! There is no in house staff to help however the caterer manager, Moe, for the only allowed caterer Philip Stone (which btw food was incredible!) is awesome! He was such a pleasure to work with and was a tremendous help to us both in the planning and the day of....as was Alexis Bocchi. They did a fantastic job and know this venue inside out.....know exactly how to put on a spectacular event and do not at all push for you do do unnecessary, costly things. Our wedding day was perfection and this venue was beyond words amazing!

    My wedding at the Hempstead house was phenominal. Nobody can stop talking about how amazing it was. Its a beautiful venue and Mostafa our coordinator made everything lovely and organized. This venue does come with a hefty price tag but is like no other venue.
