While there are a ton of great wedding venues available in the New York City area, there are just as many on Long Island that are good for the big day. From elegant historic sites to more modern wedding venues, you will be able to find the best wedding venues on Long Island for your special day.
We have just published a feature article called, “The Biggest Wedding Venues on Long Island” and can now reveal the places we believe to be the best. In this article, we explore some of the top wedding venues on Long Island.
Staten Island – One of the best places to look for vintage homes and quaint neighborhoods is Staten Island. The state’s beautiful beaches and unique history make it one of the best places to get married in New York City. Our picks include Holly Grove Beach, Willets Point Park, East End Beach, Cherry Beach, and Starlight Beach.
South Jersey – Beautiful beaches, long stretches of sandy beach, and plenty of other amenities to make the South Jersey beaches one of the best on Long Island. One of our picks is Garden State Beach, Liberty State Park, Allamuchy Beach, and Ocean State Beach. Check out the State Theater, Battery Park, Kings Wharf, and Broad Street in New Jersey.
Roanoke – Many couples choose Roanoke for their wedding because it is the perfect location. This small city is full of historic charm, particularly in its downtown. Our picks include Little Roanoke, Old North Church, and Niles Creek Park. You can even have a Roman Catholic Mass in front of the Old North Church.
Plattsburgh – It’s the quiet-as-hell north central New York location that draws the most couples. Still, there are plenty of attractions on the North Shore. Our pick is Plattsburgh Museum and Art Center, the Coward Museum, Skyline Park, and Family Village. There are also the Waverly Inn, the Waverly Community Center, and Prospect Park.
The Hamptons – Just south of New York City is the classic, peaceful, yet luxurious hamlet known as the Hamptons. This is the place to go for a great honeymoon, wedding, or formal event. Our picks include Greenwich Village, Lighthouse Point, Staplehurst, and Knightsbridge.
Montauk – This is the place for lovers of all things mermaids. You won’t find too many old luxury home complexes in this area, but there are still plenty of options. Our picks include Sunnyside Garden, Villa Savoye, Cabot House, Golden Meadow, and Bellerose Farm.
Litchfield County – Though this is not technically in New York City, it is the place to look for old-time farmhouses that fit your wedding theme. Most of the homes that are preserved for that historical appeal are located in Litchfield County. Our picks include the Lincoln Estate, Palisades Park, Orville Nott Park, Lillian Rolfe Woodland, and the Clark House.
Fenway – The Green Monster at Fenway Park is one of the best attractions in the city. The park is also home to a number of other interesting attractions. Our favorites include John Hancock’s grave, PNC Park, and the John Hancock Tower. Plus, we love the Museum of Fine Arts.
New Jersey – One of the great things about the Garden State is the fact that it is so diverse. For example, many of the Garden State wedding locations have some pretty beautiful, historic buildings. Our picks include Lumberton Manor, Pearl Meadow Farm, and Pebble Beach Farm.
The great thing about all of these fantastic places is that they are all family oriented, with the emphasis on the second part.
