Inside the foyer of Hempstead House, one glimpse of the imposing vaulted ceiling stirs the imagination of a grand lifestyle that once existed at this Gold Coast estate. Even though the house is no longer furnished, its architecture provides a hint of an elegant time long gone.

In its heyday in the 1920s, Hempstead House revealed a taste for extravagance. In the Entry Foyer was an organ made of oak. The pipes still visible on the walls above were merely for show - the music reverberated through openings in the floors. Medieval tapestries once hung on the walls, and oriental carpets covered the floor. The sunken Palm Court once contained 150 species of rare orchids and other plants. An aviary housed exotic birds in ornate cages among the flowers. The walnut-paneled Library was copied from the palace of King James I; relief portraits of literary figures still decorate the plaster ceiling. The Billiard Room featured a gold leaf ceiling, hand-tooled leather wall coverings, and carved oak woodwork from a 17th century Spanish palace. Read less

My wedding at the Hempstead house was phenominal. Nobody can stop talking about how amazing it was. Its a beautiful venue and Mostafa our coordinator made everything lovely and organized. This venue does come with a hefty price tag but is like no other venue.

If you want a castle like venue with stunning views and lots of unique space to do photo sessions, look no further. The Hempstead house made my dream of a grand wedding come true.

I went and saw the venue in the dead of winter, even then with the trees bared of all leaves and no grass on the ground at all it still took my breath away. You pass a security check point before you get to actually view the property so you know that you will feel safe and have that wow factor for your guests on the big day. Once you made the path that led up to the castle, you have this tree line drive way and the castle-like statuesque building is all you can see. Future brides, think downtonn abby like view. My husband's first words about that view was "this is what I am talking about!"

Once you are inside, you get that regal feel all thru-out the space, filled with sunken court yards, speak-easy feel side rooms and ginormous bridal and groomsmen suites. I feel like I should ring a bell and my butler would come fetch my tea. But what is so memorable is the beautiful garden in the back of the house and the view. Remember this was when I saw it in Winter, but you get the long island sound in front of you and a huge lawn laid out in front of you. Imagine all your guests turning around and looking at you as you walk down the aisle with the castle as your backdrop. I really was blown away and that was what sold me. On the day of my wedding, the garden was blooming with red rose bushes and lilacs and I was so glad that the event coordinator Rebecca told me that I did not need any flowers to decorate the space because anything more would have taken away the regal beauty of the garden. I can't believe that I got married in the castle and how beautiful it was.
Because of its historical significance, there are a few restrictions in terms of how you can decorate, but i forgo much of the decoration but you really don't need it. I love every bit of the venue.
