One Brecknock Road
If you have ever dreamed of a Great Gatsby style party in a Gold Coast style mansion, you need look no further than Brecknock Hall at Peconic Landing in Greenport. This mid-19th century manor home underwent a complete restoration that was completed in 2009 and now stands ready for any celebration, in any season. The main floor of the manor home can accommodate up to 100 guests, and in the warmer weather the sprawling grounds can accommodate an alfresco or tented party of 300+ guests. The historic details of this Victorian era gem are simply magnificent. The main floor of four spacious but charming rooms and a main hallway is complete with a curved staircase just perfect for showing off that beautiful train of your wedding gown! The second floor is just as grand with separate quarters for the groom's party and the bridesmaids while the bride (and after the ceremony the bridal couple), can steal away some quiet moments in a private salon. Floor to ceiling windows allow for plenty of a natural light, and the garden and grounds are perfect for photos. Access to a private Long Island Sound beach is a short drive away when you are ready for a beautiful sunset. An affair at Brecknock Hall will be a memorable one indeed!

Orient, L.I., NY
It's not often that reality matches fantasy, but that's what you'll experience at Driftwood Farms, a new venue for weddings and events. Located in Orient on the tip of Long Island, this is an actual farm for horses and privets but it feels like a country manor on the coast of Ireland, with vistas, and beauty usually the stuff of dreams: 140 acres of lush green lawn sweeping right up to 600' of bluff on Long Island Sound, expansive views of sky and sea, horses grazing behind fenced lined paddocks, and two enormous barns that are so perfect, anyone would love to live in them, nonetheless party in them. The barns can easily accommodate a gathering of 200 guests. This little bit of magic in Orient is made available by owners Steven and Gretchen Mezynieski who live on the property and are thrilled to share the land's beauty with others.
Hallockville Museum Farm
6038 Sound Avenue
Riverhead, NY 11901
Hallockville is unique natural staging area. The only "flash" is a shooting star across the dark night sky; the only "glitz" is the reflection of sunlight on the open fields. As almost all East End locations require, a tent is necessary to accommodate larger groups, but the beautifully restored barn provides indoor space for a cocktail party, band, and dance floor. The open beams and warm woods of the barn's interior are a designer's dream. Although eminently suited to a country design, skillful designers can turn this space into just about anything! The tent can be erected to back up against the barn so that the wide barn doors provide a natural opening between the two structures. The grounds are populated by historic buildings, many of which date from the 1700's. The location is convenient as it is close to the Hamptons, LIE, and is in the heart of Wine Country. If you prefer originals to copies, nature to fake waterfalls, and space to walls, Hallockville will speak to your inner self.

Of course it is simply sublime in the gorgeous summer weather, but Heron's Waterfront Event Space is available year round and in all weather, so you can enjoy a waterside setting without worrying about Mother Nature's mood.

When only a seaside celebration will do, the private bay beach and too quaint for words cottages of Husing's Grove in Mattituck will amaze. One main house and four fully-equipped, private country cottages, boast Peconic Bay front access, and surround an expansive lawn perfect for a tented wedding—from the ceremony to the reception's last dance.
Reminders of your seaside location are everywhere, from the rugosa rose and beachgrass lined path to the beach, the seashells crunching under the tires, and of course the briny scented breezes to keep things cool and comfortable. Just imagine how gorgeous the photos will be with the beautiful Peconic Bay as your backdrop.
There is no need to worry about transportation with room for the entire family and wedding party, both the bride's side and groom's side, to get ready on site. When the celebration winds down, the wedding couple can retire to their own private cottage to enjoy their wedding night, away from the lingering guests (and the clean-up crew). Even if you are planning a ceremony and celebration elsewhere on the North Fork, Husing's Grove would be an ideal home base for the wedding party. The cottages have three double bedrooms, and the main house has four bedrooms.
Husing's Grove offers a relaxed beachfront setting that transitions wonderfully from a rehearsal dinner clambake to a posh seaside reception, and even a cheerful morning after brunch. We suggest you consider extending your stay to include the honeymoon, because once you experience Husing's Grove you will never want to leave.

This historic Victorian era home nestled among the trees offers a magnificent space for a lawn and garden party, from start to finish. The house, seemingly right out of Gone With The Wind, has plenty of room for everyone to take care of their primping and prepping, and then make a grand entrance to greet assembled guests on the covered porch or the lawn.
The property has all the modern amenities you could ask for, including a deepwater dock for arrival by boat, plenty of parking, bed/bath suites for the bride and groom to get ready separately, out of the way places to entertain the children, and a nearly wrap-around covered porch to get out of the hot sun or (heaven forbid) rainy weather. With seemingly too many bedrooms to count, feel free to invite some overnight guests, too. So convenient for the wedding party or family members as you prepare for the big day.
Consider a ceremony on the gazebo-style porch, and partying the day away on the expansive lawn overlooking the breathtaking West Neck Harbor. And what a place for photos! From the lush landscaping to the waterviews and that romantic wrap-around porch, there are so many beautiful backdrops for your formal photo session.
The McCulloch property offers all that we love in a country wedding without the sacrifice of comforts that would make you hesitant to plan one. This venue will book quickly, so contact them soon to get your preferred date.
