Who Are We?
North Fork Weddings is the premier party planning resource for eastern Long Island-the North Fork AND the Hamptons. Established in 2003 as the first directory of hospitality services available on the North Fork, it continues a decade later as the best resource for reputable party planning services available on the East End.

Our members include romantic B&Bs for the wedding night, imaginative caterers for unique menus, event planner who think outside the box, photographers and videographers who capture not only how you look, but how you feel, vineyards and other venues that offer impeccable service and breathtaking views.
