Old westbury, NY 11568
I cannot praise the de Seversky Center enough, for helping to create the perfect wedding of our dreams! For all those newlyweds out there, who are looking for a beautiful and exclusive place that will leave your guests saying "it was the most elegant wedding they have ever attended" and not break the bank, this is the place!
We must have looked at 30 wedding venues, but just wanted that special place that would make everyones jaws drop. When we approached the mansion via the tree-lined winding drive, we knew we found the place. It is architecturally stunning, with gorgeous old-world/traditional details and beautifully manicured grounds. It is so incredibly elegant and sophisticated, with none of that "banquet hall" cheesiness.
The staff is incredible; my dream was to have an outdoor ceremony, but it rained on and off all day and it looked unlikely that we could have it outside. The General Manager was tracking the weather, and with a combination of great timing, a lot of hard work (sweeping the water off the ground and wiping down chairs) and just pure dedication of the staff there, my dream of an outdoor ceremony on the gorgeous grounds came true!
The food is superb! The selection, variety and abundance is more than you can hope for. My friends and family still can't stop talking about how great the wedding was, how impressed they were with the white-glove service, and they all asked me "how did you find this place???". I honestly feel like I found a wonderful secret - the best kept secret in the tri-state area. And, they worked with us on the price and customized a package for us that worked within our budget. We had the most incredible day of our lives, and I am happy to share my experience with anyone who is interested in having the perfect wedding.
