Wonderful to Work With!
I had the pleasure of working with Ashley Romanelli and she was just wonderful! I was feeling extremely indecisive about my options and working with a very tight time line. Ashley has been beyond understanding, accommodating and just all around incredible! She is also extremely responsive and great with working under pressure. I am so thankful for all of her help!Sent on 01/05/2020

My husband and I had been to The Village Club of Sands Point many times over the last 20 years for various social functions. Never a wedding though. We were always impressed with the elegant charm, sophistication, yet cozy feel of each room in the mansion, as well as the grounds and the grand drive leading up to the mansion. I always thought it would be the perfect venue some day for our daughters’ weddings. When our oldest daughter got engaged, the first place that came to mind was The Village Club of Sands Point. My husband and I went up there without even calling for an appointment. The Events Director, Ashley Romanelli, came right out to take us around, give us all the information and answer every question we had. After speaking with Ashley, we left there feeling so confident that this was the best place for a spectacular wedding. Over the next few months, and especially the week before the wedding, we stopped in several times with questions and concerns. Ashley, Assistant Director Rachel and Executive Chef Jack Clark, were always available, so friendly and extremely professional. They were always ready and willing to accommodate our needs. They had solutions, suggestions and ideas for every situation. What an incredible team. Finally, the big day. Not enough words to describe how perfect everything was the day of the wedding. Everything came together so beautifully. Ashley, Rachel and their staff worked so professionally as if they had all worked together a million times. They made it look effortless. Not a single thing went wrong or was out of place. Lucy, the Brides attendant, was wonderful. Can’t say enough. She not only took care of every need of the Bride and Groom, she also made sure the rest of our family was taken care of at all times. Now.....The food!!! It was off the charts. The cocktail hour of passed hors d’oeuvres and stations were spectacular. The salad at other weddings is usually soggy, mushy and flat by the time everyone sits down for the first course. Our salad was so fresh, crisp and fluffy. The surf and turf entrees were perfectly cooked and delicious. The passed desserts were so decadent and so much fun!!! Everyone was glad they didn’t have to go back to their seats to have dessert. The bite sized desserts were passed around every room whether you were having a drink in the bar room, relaxing by the fireplace, dancing in the courtyard or sitting at a table in the dining room chatting with friends. All our relatives and friends are still raving about how beautiful and how unique our wedding was compared to any other wedding they have ever been to. And how each room in the Mansion was utilized so well. Everything flowed so well from one room to the next. Everyone enjoyed the homey feel of each room. No one wanted to leave. All of our guest are still raving about the amazing job Chef Jack Clark did on the food. “Best wedding food we ever had”. The Pasta Station was phenomenal. Thumbs up from all our quests for the excellent sauces and especially for the al dente pasta. The Sliders Station was a huge hit. What’s impressive is that Chef Jack Clark comes out of the kitchen making sure the guests are enjoying the food. We want to thank Ashley, Rachel, Chef Jack, Lucy and the entire staff for working so hard and so professionally to make our daughter and new son in law’s wedding absolute perfection.Sent on 12/30/2019

Blissful Wedding at the Mansion
The Mansion at the Village Club in Sands Point provided the perfect setting and environment for our wedding. Each room elegantly designed to provide an old-world charm that left all of our guests, including my husband and I, amazed. Not to mention the beautiful views out towards the courtyard and Manhattan skyline providing the perfect backdrop for our guests to celebrate all night long. The service was exemplary. Ashley and Rachel were attentive to our every question and request leading up to our wedding day. Any potential stress in the planning process was relieved with their assistance. They were an incredible resource. Furthermore, on our actual wedding day, Lucy was my bridal assistant. She crushed it. Lucy was so pleasant and helpful throughout pictures, the cocktail hour, dinner and dancing. Lucy was always one step ahead of us providing anything we needed! Last and certainly not least was the food. Incredible. Chef Jack and his team created an incredible spread with the passed hor d'oeuvres, pasta bar and slider bar. We still have guests telling us how delicious everything was. Our meal was no exception. The salad was fresh and quenching The surf and turf was tender and perfectly cooked. Most wedding meals are often over looked, however, our dinner was simply unforgettable. Easily the best wedding food we ever had. The Village Club of Sands Points was a dream experience, and I cannot recommend them highly enough.Sent on 12/31/2019

LOVE the Village Club of Sands Point!
My husband and I were thrilled about hosting our wedding at the Village Club of Sands Point. The venue is not a typical one and that is exactly what we loved about it. Our guests were amazed at the various rooms and the flow of the event inside and outside. It is such a romantic special venue and I feel so lucky to have found it.
Ashley Romanelli, the Food and Beverage Director was also AMAZING to work with. She was thoughtful and responsive from the day we met her. She made planning super easy and offered some great vendor recommendations. Communication was never an issue. I really trusted her through the planning process and no question or idea on my end was ever shot down.
Food and beverage was also super important to us and our families. The VCSP offered plenty of food options and everyone raved about what we offered. My husband is still saying he wants more of his specialty cocktail that Ashley helped plan.
We've only been married two months but we are still talking about the wedding and hearing feedback on how amazing the VCSP was. I wish I could do it all over again. It was the perfect day in a perfect setting.Sent on 12/20/2019

There are no words to really describe the amazing experience we had at the The Village Club. We worked with Ashley from the very beginning and she couldn't have been more accommodating, She is an absolute doll and so easy going and a delight to work with. Every inch of the Mansion is exquisite, my guests were in awe of the whole venue, every corner you turn, every room upstairs and down, are so filled with rich and beautiful history. The staff! OMG LUCY is the most wonderful person and Bridal Attendant a girl could ask for. To say she went above and beyond would be an understatement. She stayed by my side for the entire day, I never needed for anything, she was 100% on top of everything all day. Rachel was there all day as well, she was amazing, and so accommodating, she did everything with a smile, even with some last minute changes she always went with the flow, she was wonderful! The food was absolutely delicious! my guests are still talking about the cocktail hour. Chef even came up with a new passed hors d'oeuvre in honor of a passed family member. The steak was perfect, the duck was unreal! Really I cannot say enough good things about this venue. If I could do it all over again, I would and I wouldn't change a thing. In fact I want to host more events there in the future! I cant wait!
Thank you to the whole team at the village club for giving me the wedding of my dreams!Sent on 10/02/2019

Fabulous wedding venue!
As everyone reading this knows, planning your wedding is really daunting. Each venue we looked at had its pros and cons. But when we found VCSP there were little to no downsides. We had a great experience working with Ashley and everyone at VCSP. They were flexible and attentive in the planning process. The wedding itself was perfect. All details were taken care of. Ashley was on top of all the last minute touches, the food was fabulous and the chef walked around all night making sure things were on point. He even brought me out more dessert at the end of the night! Our wedding attendant, Lucy, was the one of the best parts. She was there the entire time and for everything you could think of. She had water on hand, she reminded me to eat in the morning, she helped with the dress and the bustle (I had a day of coordinator too and Lucy was still super amazing!), the list goes on and on. The guests are still talking about how beautiful the place is and how good the food was and how much fun they had! My cousin just got engaged and she wants to have her wedding there and I'm so excited! I totally recommend this venue.Sent on 10/07/2019

My daughters wedding 5/26/2019
This is the second wedding I’ve done and the fourth major party I’ve hosted . I’ve had very elaborate venues such as Pierre Hotel etc . I have never come across a more perfect venue for a wedding or party for under 250 guests . This was a regal , grand mansion owned by the Guggenheim family and ultimately purchased by the village of Sands Point . The club manager Dana was at the top of her game and runs this club like a fine Swiss watch . You can see the respect she commands from her staff . Ashley Romanelli who is the event coordinator is on another level with her professionalism, her sweet and charming personality and most important, her knowledge of how to coordinate and run a first class function . I have never encountered a more flexible attitude and a credo of “ bending over backward approach “ to making your party successful. The grounds are magnificent and the food was amazing . This venue lends itself to the full gamut of an intimate party to a large scale affair . The rest of the staff rises to the occasion from Rachel to Jack who is the clubs Chef and not to leave out Lucy who attended to the Bride and bridal party like they were royalty . Don’t think twice if you want the most memorable, top notch , classy and elegant event . Village Club At Sands Point , YOU ROCK !!

Stunning Venue & Amazing Team!
Hands down amazing in every single way!! Stumbling across this venue was the best thing that could have ever happened. I'm from Long Island, live in Chicago currently and needed to have my dream wedding in NY. I searched high and low for a mind blowing and unique venue until I found The Village Club of Sands Point. From the moment you pull up to the venue you are in owe of the perfectly kept grounds, NYC skyline, water view and just overall beauty of the mansion. From just the initial conversations I knew we were in great hands. We had FaceTime meetings, they let my mom drop in at a moments notice to do as many walk-through's as needed and Andrea was beyond patient and receptive to my excessive planning e-mails. Andrea who is the Event Coordinator for the venue helped me with inspiration, vendors, accommodations and everything we could possibly need. She jumped in and personally coordinated details and timelines with our vendors which I will always be grateful for because I could not have planned our wedding from out-of-state without her. When it came down to the final weeks we sat down with Dana who is General Manager and a saint. She went through every single second of the day to make sure every detail was covered, created floor plans and was fabulous in every way. They led the show, set up all of decor exactly as I imagined and never missed a beat. The day of my girls and I got ready upstairs in the beautiful bridal suite and hotel area. The VCSP team was there bright and early to greet us and treat us like royalty while overseeing all of the incoming vendors. And that is when we met LUCY..there are not enough words to describe how beyond amazing Lucy is. She was our Bridal Attendant for the day who we all quickly adopted as a our new best friend. She was the kindest, most efficient and helpful person I could have ever hoped to have by our side for our wedding. She made sure my veil and dress never touched the ground, she even cut my steak to force fed me and hydrated me as the day flew by (she insisted). If you needed scissors, tape or anything else you could possibly think of it was in her pockets..she was literally an angel. In fact, every single person at VCSP went above and beyond. They moved furniture, hung decor, made special accommodations with no questions asked and executed everything perfectly. The food was amazing, people were blown away by every course. One of the best parts of the venue is the hotel rooms upstairs, they are beautiful and we were able to have our whole wedding party spend the the night with us to keep the party going. We lived like kings and queens for the night when the reception was over we made our way upstairs and kept the party going. Dana even had balloons that I had brought with us for the after party, inflated and hung up for one last surprise. Brenda who helped us coordinate the hotel rooms made sure each guest had their welcome bags ready for them too. There was no rush out the door and since we no longer live in NY it was extra special for us to have that accommodation to spend extra time with our friends and family. I could go on for days and would give this venue 100 stars if it was an option. I cant thank Andrea, Dana, Lucy, Ben and Brenda and the rest of the spectacular Village Club for the perfect experience that would have not been possible without them. The mansion will always be stunning but the perfect wedding experience was all possible thanks to their team!Sent on 10/31/2018

Village Club of Sands Point was a dream location for my wedding reception. Everything was absolutely perfect and the night could not have been more beautiful and romantic. Candles were scattered throughout the mansion and on the staircase, guests danced all night long in the courtyard with the glass ceiling, and the floral arrangements looked beautiful amidst the backdrop of stone walls and the dining room. Andrea, our wedding event coordinator, was so helpful and accommodating since day one. She ensured that everything was perfect and that the entire night went smoothly....thank you so much Andrea! The entire staff for the night was INCREDIBLE. Nothing but endless thank yous and compliments from my me, my husband, and all our guests. The morning of the wedding, I was able to get ready in one of the beautiful hotel suites at the venue which was perfect. We were given celebratory champagne and lunch which made getting ready a stress-free wonderful experience. To make things even more amazing, I was given a bridal attendant, Lucy, who treated me as if I was her own daughter and assisted me throughout the day. She was an absolute sweetheart and was a great help. Everyone involved in our reception was responsive, professional, genuinely kind, and helpful. Everything was literally perfect and I could not be happier. The food was absolutely delicious, wait staff accommodated all guests including my two little nephews (Thanks Zelda!), the acoustics were perfect for our 8 piece band, and all went smoothly. The Village Club of Sands Point is the epitome of romance, elegance, and class. My dream wedding became a reality!Sent on 08/06/2018

We just had our wedding at the Village Club of Sands Point and I recommend every Bride have there wedding here. Our 12/30/17 wedding was one we all will remember. Not one thing went wrong during this day! The charm and elegance of the VCSP is all the guests kept talking about. The staff were amazing with all the little details and helped with making sure we were fed all day because the day is just so busy. The food was also amazing! Everyone loved it. Last minute, I decided on a piano player for cocktail hour and they helped me find one in a weeks time! We did get lucky someone was available but without there help that wouldn’t have been possible. Being able to stay at the VCSP the whole weekend of the wedding was the best thing I have done and is a must for all Brides. It makes everything so much easier and with less things to worry about. Andrea and Elvis were ninja mind-readers. They never were in the way and when you needed something, somehow they were already there doing it or it was already done. They took all the stress away from me. I am so happy with how my wedding went and they are a huge part of making it perfect! Thank you for an amazing venue and staff! You must book the VCSP!Sent on 01/09/2018

Where do I even start? First off, this venue is incredible and speaks for itself! It is beautiful inside and out. On top of that, Burak, Elvis, and Andrea were an absolute pleasure to work with. The thing I appreciated the most is that they were so flexible with anything we wanted to do and anything we threw at them, they knocked it out of the park! We are so grateful for everything they did and the hard work of their staff. This was a giant house party as the entire wedding party stayed in the rooms upstairs and really made for a nice day as some of our closest friends and family did not have to leave all day. The food was out-of-this-world! Ceremony was held in the courtyard which turned into the dance floor...UNREAL! On behalf of my wife and I, thank you to everyone at The Village Club of Sands Point as this place is truly a diamond in the rough.Sent on 11/06/2017

VCoSP is an amazing place to have a wedding. The grounds and building are excellent and well kept, and Burak and Andrea are great to work with. They met all of our needs and expectations and even helped us out with a few details we overlooked - really had our backs and made sure everything went smoothly. We rented the rooms upstairs too, which were so nice, and it really makes you feel like you have the place to yourselves for a weekend. Once we found this place we knew it was our venue, so we were very happy that it was also a pleasure to work with them!Sent on 09/28/2017

From the minute we met Burak Mayveci at the Village Club we knew we were in great hands. He was so easy to talk to (zero high pressure) and made us feel confident that our daughters wedding would be perfect. He was patient with our questions and so honest and helpful, making amazing suggestions that turned out to be the right solutions. But we couldn't possibly appreciate how special working with he and his staff would be until we got closer to the date. No matter how many questions and favors we asked, they were responsive and cooperative! I should mention this was our third child's wedding in 4 years and our other experiences with venues were awful in comparison. So I say with 100% confidence, if you are searching for the perfect wedding location, you would feel like you won the lottery here. The setting is breathtaking with the Long Island sound in the backyard. The courtyard is magical (a photographers dream), the food plentiful and delicious (our guests could not stop raving about the filet mignon) and the staff as professional and helpful as you could ask for (Andrea was such a doll). We also used their hotel upstairs for the bridesmaids to get ready and the girls were swept up in the romance of the mansion. Can you tell how happy we were with the Village Club??? Thank you Burak, Andrea, Elvis and the chef for more than delivering on your promises. The day was a dream come true for our families and guests and we will never forget how hard you worked the whole year to bring our vision to life!Sent on 09/05/2017
