We had our wedding at The Estate at East Wind on 11/27/21 and could not have been more impressed about every single aspect of this venue! From making a seamless and stress free transition from our original date due to covid, to being communicative and helpful in any questions we had in the process, and knocking us out with how impressed we were on the day of with the food, organization, and beautiful setup! Jennifer was our sales associate/manager/coordinator through the whole process and she was absolutely great, kind, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns.
Tony was our Matir’d the day of and he was so nice, accommodating, and did everything he could to make sure the day went on without a problem. He was present the entire night and truly made our experience wonderful. Not to mention he was so personable. Mary Lou was our bridal attendant and I couldn’t say more amazing things about her!! She was so sweet, present, and did everything she possibly could to make sure we were taken care of that night, well fed, and doing ok! She truly worked so hard! All of the waitstaff was very nice, professional, and offered fantastic service. The Estate is absolutely stunning and we were blown away with the beauty and transition of our indoor ceremony to the reception room. Our guests didn’t even know it was the same room! The cocktail hour was also unbelievably impressive with the amount of food, and the quality! The food at the reception was also phenomenal and we appreciated everyone basically getting their food around the same time, quickly, and hot! The bartenders and drinks were also phenomenal! We made the absolute best decision in choosing this venue and would not change a thing if we could do it all over again!

My son was married on Friday, November 26, 2021 in the Cottage. We originally booked his wedding, two years ago, and it was supposed to take place last year. COVID 19 had other plans for us. We booked the wedding with Jennifer. Immediately, I felt like she understood not only the couple vision, but she had an understanding of how important this wedding was to us. I include myself in the “us” and you will soon understand why. We moved from Queens to Long Island to start a new life after my marriage ended. Joseph (who was just married) took on a new role. He was no longer just the oldest sibling, he was now the man of the house. He sacrificed a lot growing up. Paid for every single college textbook for his sister, who is only a year younger than he is, bought is brother his first car, took me grocery shopping and to numerous doctors appointments as I battled health issues. He was selfless. When he got engaged, and decided to have a wedding, I recommended East Wind, because I had attended a wedding there a couple of months prior and LOVED IT. What I didn’t know was how we would immediately feel like family. Jennifer cried with me when we booked the wedding. I briefly explained our situation and she made sure she never let us down. I told her, that whatever my son wanted, to give him. She took every call, answered every email, and made what could be a very stressful time, seamless. She is simply amazing. Everything was so perfect I am still crying over it. I cannot thank you enough for making mine and my sons dream come true! Jennifer, you are family. I am so grateful that we randomly got you when we came to see the venue. Seeing my son’s face and hearing him talk about that day is priceless. I will never forget how happy he is. Thank you for giving us the best memory! I am going to recommend you to EVERYONE!!

My daughter finally had her wedding reception on November 13, 2021. Like many brides her wedding ceremony & reception was postponed because of covid. However, we were very lucky to have three very experienced professionals handling her wedding ceremony & reception which was a year apart. She had a mini-ceremony in 2020 at The Estate at East Wind & her reception this weekend.
Laura Allison (Banquet Sales Manager) is simply amazing, she will remember every detail you discuss with her, make the best suggestions to complete your day, and communicate all your wishes precisely to the Maitre’D who will be in charge of your wedding.
If your the lucky bride to have Tony as your Maitre’D, those wishes will become a perfected Reality.
Mary Lou was my daughter’s bridal attendant and she not only made sure my daughter’s needs were addressed she also helped me! I was simply amazed when Mary Lou noticed that my daughter didn’t drink water since she got there and brought her a glass on the dance floor, waited till she drank before walking away.
To say these three people take their jobs seriously would be an understatement. You will be the lucky bride on your wedding day if your have these three people; Laura, Tony, & Mary Lou on your team, they will turn your wedding day into the precise wedding you’ve been dreaming of!
I personally can’t thank them enough for planning a wedding, (which by itself is stressful then add a pandemic to that) and making it an enjoyable experience. My husband and I (3 days later) are still getting texts & calls from our guests telling us how much they enjoyed every moment. That is all due to the dedication & experience of these three people: Thank you once again
Laura Allison, Tony, & Mary Lou!

My husband and I cannot say enough good things about our wedding at East Wind! To start off, their packages offer a lot at a very fair and affordable price. We got married at the Veranda venue. The ceremony area outside was absolutely beautiful, and our cocktail hour and reception offered a beautiful balcony area, which our guests loved! We booked our wedding with Laura Allison in sales and worked with her for the year leading up to our wedding. We probably called her at least once a week with questions and she always got back to us in a very timely manner and answered any questions we had with a smile on her face. Barbara, our bridal attendant, was absolutely amazing! She was so attentive to all of our needs during the wedding, without being invasive in any way! We would turn around for a second, and next thing we know, our glasses were filled with fresh, cold champagne. We cannot say enough good things about Barbara, and we felt very lucky to have her with us at our wedding. Even after our wedding we got to speak with Mike, the director of sales, who inquired about our honest feedback because he genuinely cared about client experiences. Their food was delicious, the vendors included in their package were all amazing, and the night went very smoothly. Overall, my husband and I definitely recommend choosing East Wind for your wedding!

My husband and I got married on May 16th 2021 and it was the best time of my life. Jennifer was SO amazing and is still so amazing and I am so glad we were able to add her not only as a sales manager but she became part of our family. I was on the fence about East Wind but Jenn eased my mind that we were going to to be well taken care of. From the first time meeting her at the Ronkonkoma Showcase, Jennifer remembered us when I called after looking at countless venues three months later. Through COVID, she put us at ease with updating us with the NYS restrictions. On the day of our wedding, Tony, our Maitre Di and Mary Lou, our bridal attendant, were AMAZING and catered to our every want and need. I was blown away at just how smoothly the (everything) went and i can’t wait to hopefully have another event there soon!!!

This place is not only gorgeous it is run by the most professional and accommodating staff I’ve ever met. We had a whole wedding planned in upstate NY and when covid hit we had a hard time finding out information from our event coordinator until 4 months before the wedding when we were told that our wedding couldn’t happen. So we were left scrambling trying to figure out what to do and then during an internet search I found The East Wind. Not only were we able to keep our original date but they gave us such a great price for an all inclusive package. It made our day go by so much easier not having to to locate out own photographer and dj. The East Wind saved our day and made it 10x better then we could have ever imagined. Would definitely recommend anyone planning a wedding or a big event to go here.

We had our wedding at the cottage and it was perfect. Penny answered my 10000+ questions right away, the venue was beautiful even in the hail! Judy was great the day of. Our guests were soo impressed with all of the food. Wouldn’t have changed a thing!!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 1/12/2020 Ashley Z. – The Knot
My husband and I got married on December 28th in The Estate at East Wind Long Island. It was THE BEST day ever! Everybody on the East Wind staff was so helpful and supportive throughout the entire wedding process. The food was amazing and the guests had a blast. I have and would continue to recommend East Wind to any bride that is wanting the wedding of her dreams. It was also extremely helpful to use all of the vendors at East Wind, as they all worked together extremely smoothly and went above and beyond.
Yesterday, was truly exceptional. The allure and reputation of East Wind alone is what made us book our wedding there. However the service we received was unparalleled. From the minute we arrived on property yesterday we were taken care of with the utmost class and hospitality.
Our Maitre D Luis was a dream come true. The meticulous attention to detail he had and the “you don’t have to worry about anything” mindset he instilled in us was what made the day so spectacular. Pairing him with our bridal attendant Krista made for an amazing team. I can not say enough accolades about the two of them. Krista made sure Catherine was never without a drink or anything she might have needed and handled everything exceptionally and without being asked. Her attentiveness made us feel completely at ease. She kept the night on track beautifully. The both of them are two all stars that Catherine and I both agree made yesterday run flawlessly. They are tremendous assets to your team.
We took Luis’ advice to sit in our bridal suite alone and relax before the cocktail hour started and we enjoyed every minute of it. We left that room completely stuffed and were able to socialize with our guests without being hungry. Luis also had all the vendors on the same page which made for an even easier night.
Our guests raved about the quality and taste of the food. We have attended weddings that cost on the upside of 75,000 dollars and we agree that the service we received at East Wind was priceless in comparison. The food tasted fresh and was prepared beautifully.
We can not say enough good things about our special day. We are still smiling from ear to ear. On behalf of Catherine and myself thank you for making this possible. You handled us with such care and everything was as described, and even better.
Have a wonderful New Year.
Sincerely, Tom Krisa

Thank you soooo much for all of your help in planning our anniversary party! Everything was perfect from the beginning with the Maitre’d (Luis Torres) and the staff who served, to the hors d’oeuvres, the buffet, and the cake. We couldn’t have asked for anything more special. We will remember that night for many years to come! We also want you to know, everyone there said all the food was exceptional! We tell everyone that this was our 3rd booking with the East Wind, we have never been disappointed and we recommend them highly. Thanks again Penny for helping to make our 50th wedding anniversary so special.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 12/03/2019 Jessica L. – Wedding Wire
My hubby and I had our reception at the Estate at East Wind Long Island on Saturday November 16th, 2019. We cannot say enough great things about our wedding day. From the very beginning when we initially booked them, the entire journey of planning and then to the big finale, everyone and everything was top notch. Michele Testa was our wedding organizer for East Wind and she was amazing. Helping us stay organized and ensuring that our day was going to be everything we wanted and more. Our Maitre’d Tony and bridal attendant Mary Lou were phenomenal. Alex and I did nothing but ENJOY ourselves the entire weekend. The entire staff was so attentive, professional, and truly made us and our guests feel right at home. If I could do our wedding day all over again there is not one thing I would change. The East Wind gave us the best experience any bride and groom could ask for.

My high school prom was at East Wind and the moment I walked in I said this was where I would have my wedding. Almost 10 years later I’m fulfilling that promise. My husband and I are so thrilled with how our day turned out, and the Cottage was the perfect setting. Penny, our sales manager was very accommodating with everything we asked, the food was out of this world, and our maitre d’ Suzanne made sure that everything was exactly how I wanted it for the reception. Our guests are still raving about what an amazing wedding it was.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 11/17/2019 Cathy F. – The Knot
I can’t even find the right words to describe how amazing East Wind was. From the first day we booked, it has been such an easy and incredible experience. Our sales manager Penny, was friendly and accommodating and always made sure every question and concern was answered in the most professional way possible. She was such a pleasure to meet with and always made sure any appointment she made with me was always at my convenience. Fast forward to the day of my wedding… We had our wedding at the Estate, and everything was set up to absolute perfection. The room was breathtaking, the food was INCREDIBLE from cocktail hour to dinner, and the staff went above and beyond. Suzanne, our maitre d, was such a dream to work with, and my bridal attendant was fantastic. If you’re looking for a beautiful venue to give you the most perfect wedding, East Wind is your place. If I could redo my wedding, I would choose East Wind a million times.
Mike and I cannot even begin to thank you enough for being SO AMAZING from the very first day we booked with east wind. Our wedding last night was so incredibly perfect. I could’ve have picture a more perfect wedding. Working with you had been such an absolute pleasure and I just wanted to reach out to say thank you for making this important day of our lives one we will never forget. I don’t have a single complaint AT ALL. I wish I can find the right words to express our gratitude. If I can do it all over again, I would book with east wind a million more times. Thank you again!!!!

My husband and I are so happy we chose to have our small, intimate wedding at the Cottage location at East Wind. The grounds are beautifully groomed for an outdoor ceremony and pictures. One wedding guest said, “this is where Snow White lives.” The food was amazing and in abundance. All of the wait staff and bartenders were attentive to the guests’ needs. My bridal attendant, Barbara, did a fantastic job taking care of the behind the scene personal details for me while Judy (our Maitre D’) orchestrated the show. Jennifer, the banquet manager guided us throughout the wedding planning process. She was awesome; answered calls, emails immediately, made the planning super easy to understand and coordinate our beautiful day. Thank you, East Wind, we truly appreciate all of you and your hard work! We loved our wedding and our guests did, too!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 10/30/2019 Renee C. – The Knot
We chose The Cottage at The East Wind….it was absolutely perfect!!!! Jennifer, who helps plan everything is amazing and will help you ever step of the way….she even dropped in right before the ceremony to see us!!! Our bridal attendant Judy was great!! Every employee…waiters…bartenders …everyone was pleasant with a smile on their faces and couldn’t do enough for us!!! Our Maitre D was the best!!!!!!!!! The food was amazing!!! Our guests thought that the cocktail hour was the reception! So much food!! The grounds and cottage are very pretty it was an amazing day not one thing went wrong. Our guests continue to compliment us and tell us that it was one of the best weddings they have ever been to. I highly recommend The East Wind especially if you have out of town guests since the hotel is amazing as well as Desmond’s where we had our rehearsal dinner. Since we did have out of town guests who stayed a couple days there was always something for them to do since they could just walk over to shops next door. Thank you East Wind and especially a big thank you to Jennifer! 🙂
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 10/30/2019 Amanda L. – The Knot
Absolutely incredible. From start to finish. I was reassigned to Jennifer when my original banquet manager let – she was ABSOLUTELY fantastic. I adore her endlessly. My wedding was phenomenal. We were in the Estate; everything was perfection. Cocktail hour was delicious and we had so many options for dinner. The drinks were strong and delicious! The passed desserts are to die for. Suzanne was our maitre d – if you have her, you are in amazing hands. We had MaryLou as well and again, absolutely amazing from start to finish. Our wedding was October 5th and people are still telling us how our wedding is the best one they have been to. Do NOT hesitate – you won’t regret it!!
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ – 10/18/2019 Julie K. – The Knot
We had our wedding in the Northampton ballroom on September 27th and it was the most beautiful night. Luis was our Maitre D. He was the best! Extremely detail oriented, so on top of every moment. My bridal attendant was Christine, who was also wonderful. She brought us food/drink, bustled my dress, and was always there if I needed anything. The guests loved the food and the atmosphere.
From day one of my wife and I Picking the East Wind as our wedding site, it was absolutely amazing. From top to bottom they gave us their undivided attention. Jennifer, the banquet manager was a godsend. She made the process as easy as possible and was on her A game making sure everything was perfect. The wedding itself was beautiful beyond our wildest dreams. From the Wedding Assistant Suzanne just taking care of every little detail for my wife and I whether it was getting us water to stopping our photographer so my wife can use the bathroom lol she was awesome so was the Maitre ‘D. I cant speak highly enough about the entire staff at the East Wind. They made our entire family feel welcomed and loved.
