The Hamptons is a dream wedding destination. Once you’ve decided to get married out here, it’s time to decide where you’ll walk down the aisle. This may be a narrow stretch of island, but a number of local options offer unique packages to tailor a wedding to any couple’s needs. Check out these four hot spots for your Hamptons wedding.
Wölffer Estate Vineyard
Located in Sagaponack, Wölffer Estate Vineyard boasts a picturesque wedding space across 55 acres. As confirmed by event assistant Erica Velasquez, “The vineyard views are breathtaking and the Tuscan-style winery provides an incredible ambiance.” Wölffer utilizes its beautiful spaces for weddings that can accommodate up to 175 people. The ceremony takes place by the gazebo, cocktails are served on the lawn, dinner is served on the outdoor terrace and dancing commences inside the tasting room. The custom-designed packages include expert planning and personalized service, so you can create your dream vineyard wedding.
Southampton Historical Museum
The Southampton Historical Museum has multiple venues for couples to customize their day. Built in 1843, the Rogers Mansion on Meeting House Lane has four reception rooms with Victorian-era furnishings, appropriate for seated dinners of up to 50 people and receptions of up to 150 people. Just outside, the great lawn can accommodate a gathering of over 200 people, either outdoors or under a tent. The location has a picturesque pergola that provides protection from the elements. Just up South Main Street, the old Halsey House, built in 1666, works well for outdoor events on nearly an acre of grounds. Contact the Southampton Historical Museum for custom wedding packages and a preferred list of vendors, which includes Schmidt’s and Catena’s Food Market for catering; and Lynch’s Garden Center and Topiare Flower Shop for flowers and arrangements.
Southampton Historical Museum is located at 17 Meeting House Lane in Southampton. For more info, call 631-283-2494 or email [email protected].
Parrish Art Museum
Who can resist a wedding night at the museum? The Parrish Art Museum in Water Mill offers jaw dropping gallery space, plus a stunning 5,800-square-foot wraparound terrace that overlooks neighboring Duck Walk Vineyards. Expect dazzling sunsets as you toast to your new life together. The space can accommodate cocktail parties as well as sit-down dinners and dancing for up to 300 guests. Couples can make use of the museum’s lobby, galleries, theater and terrace. The Parrish could be this year’s hottest wedding space—Brides magazine recently named it one of the country’s “10 buzziest new wedding spots for 2016” in its February/March issue.
