Outstanding day because of great food and service

My daughter recently had her wedding and reception at the Hempstead House, part of the Sands Point Preserve. The place itself is beautiful and has a spectacular view. But more importantly the service was outstanding, and the food provided by Philip Stone Caterers was simply amazing in both taste and it鈥檚 unique style. The two lead people Emily and Mo were extremely attentive to all our needs throughout the whole planning process. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a great wedding reception.

Straight Out of a Movie

The Hempstead House at Sands Point Preserve is the pinnacle of a beautiful, romantic, and magical venue. It made my husband and me feel royal, it made our guests feel special, and we could not be happier with our decision to get married there. Emily and Mo, the two main points of contact at Hempstead House, are simply exceptional. They are kind, patient, and utterly devoted to making your special occasion unforgettable. They were available at all times for questions, and made the planning process as stress-free and enjoyable as can be. They were also laser-focused in the days leading up to our special day/night to ensure that our wedding was nothing short of perfect. And on the day/night of, Emily and Mo were invaluable to say the least. It became quite obvious to us that they pour their heart and soul into every one of the events they manage. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, and we could not have done it without Emily, Mo, their flawless team, and the unparalleled Hempstead House.

BEST Team & Venue: Emily & Moe/The Hempstead House

I was a September 2023 bride at the Hempstead House and truly had the wedding of my dreams!! Emily & Moe are the absolute DREAM TEAM. Emily became a part of the family and we all adored her. I tell everyone I didn't have a wedding planner and feel like I was fine since I had Emily hahaha. Not only are they amazing, but the venue is exquisite and so unique for Long Island in my opinion. HIGHLY recommend working with them and their team. I will forever be so thankful and in awe of my venue!
