    Our wedding was incredible!

    I can't adequately put into words how happy we are with our decision to host our wedding reception at The Mansion at Oyster Bay. Obviously the building and grounds are beautiful and have so many fantastic backdrops for pictures. Seeing how Lessing's has invested in the mansion since taking over management is really fantastic (pull up pictures of The Woodlands to see for yourself)!

    We'd been to events at other Lessing's venues before and were confident that we'd be in good hands at The Mansion at Oyster Bay. What we didn't know when we first walked in was just how wonderful it would be to work with Gary, Emily, Luis, and Natalie throughout the entire process, from the moment we walked in the door for our initial tour to days after the wedding (when we returned yet again to pick up an envelope that was left behind). We were always confident that we were in good hands, always felt like we were being put on a pedestal for our special day, and ultimately had a fantastic wedding! I've run corporate events before, so I have an idea of what goes on behind the scenes for a large event like this, and Luis and Natalie were on their game all night. They were right there when we needed them, sometimes before we even knew we needed them, and helped when some unexpected hiccups popped up during the night.

    The entire staff and The Mansion at Oyster Bay helped make our wedding perfect. We're only a week post-wedding and we've received so many compliments on the venue, the food, the staff, etc. Our only wish is that we can come back as a guest for someone else's wedding!

    Amazing Venue, Amazing Staff, Amazing Day

    My husband and I were so impressed with how our daughter's wedding day went from beginning to end. Gary was amazing; every time we met with him he was kind, knowledgeable and professional but what impressed me and my husband was the caring way he handled every detail as if our daughter was one of his family members. Louise made the day flow so smoothly and the best part was he handled everything with such ease and made sure all we had to do was enjoy the day worry free. Natalie was an angel; my daughter said she was always there for her and her husband and made them feel like royalty. Jonathan was incredible; I don't know how he did it but he seem to always appear at the very moment you needed something as if he could read your mind. Your chef and his team made the most incredible, delicious, mouth watering dishes and the way they were presented were elegantly done. The waiters, waitresses, bartenders and bathroom attendants were terrific and their five star service completed the most elegant wedding we could have ever dreamed of giving our daughter. I had so many calls and texts the next day from family and friends telling us how great our daughter's wedding was and complementing the venue and the staff. They talked about the delicious food, the amazing waiters, waitresses and bartenders, the beauty of The Mansion at Oyster Bay and for me the best was they all ended the call or text with our daughter's wedding was the best wedding they have ever attended. My cousin was so impressed she told me that when her daughter gets older and its time to book her wedding she will be booking The Mansion at Oyster Bay. Our daughter's wedding day was even better than we had ever dreamed.

    Beauty, elegance, and an ambiance that is exquisite. The Woodlands at Woodbury is one of the finest wedding venues on Long Island. The staff is professional and committed to excellence. We are honored to be recommended by this wonderful venue.

    I am so thankful to have chosen The Woodlands as the place for my husband and I to join our families. Elegance, class, wonderful food, atmosphere, and the most incredible staff... what more can I say. We used The Drawing Room for the ceremony. The dark wood, dimmed lighting and fireplace made the most romantic setting. Since getting married almost 1 year ago this month, I am so happy to know that I will be coming back here again in January. The Woodlands will be hosting our daughter's Sweet 16 and we are doing a Masquerade Ball as the theme... so fitting for a beautiful mansion. And to make things even better.. I have made such wonderful friends and I am also so thrilled to have become a vendor here at The Woodlands as their Makeup Artist. What a wonderful journey this has been. I hope you too add this beautiful place and "family" to your lives!
