Lessing's Hospitality Group offers some of the most popular wedding venues on Long Island, and for good reason. Their venues are beautiful and diverse, aren't too wildly priced, and their team is great to work with. We have been lucky enough to capture weddings at nearly all of their venues multiple times each! Lessing's venues all offer 'in-house' packages - again, it is okay not to use them! Make sure you are booking vendors, photographers, DJs, and beyond, that you truly like (we hope it's us)! If you choose to not use one of their in-house vendors, here is a list of our favorite Lessing's wedding venues (sorry it's nearly all of them) that we hope to work with you at:
Bourne Mansion is truly one of our favorite Long Island waterfront wedding venues, and overall venues, really to shoot at. Bourne Mansion is a historic Vanderbilt mansion with great views of the Great South Bay and Fire Island, and is very 'Gatsby.' The mansion sits on land that once belonged to La Salle Military Academy, where John attended high school! Bourne Mansion only has one event per day, can seat 400 guests for dinner, 300 guests for the reception, and is able to host your ceremony indoor or outdoor. Unlike Mansion at Timber Point or Chateau at Coindre Hall, Bourne Mansion does offer Kosher cuisine, if needed.
Chris and Jon held the most beautiful and fun gay wedding at Bourne Mansion. It was truly the most perfect day, with crystal clear skies and loving guests. During the reception drag queens performed - it was definitely one of the most fun weddings we've ever captured!Bourne Mansion (9), First Look (5), Lessings Weddings (44), Oakdale (5), Same Sex Wedding (7).
