Tell us about some of the wedding packages you offer?
Our packages range from Black Tie formal sit down dinners to casual 'cocktail party' and buffet packages. We are always able to accommodate and to customize any type of menu.
What makes your location unique and special?
Our location is at the gateway to the North Fork of Long Island and we are set on 25 private & landscaped acres. In addition to catering we also offer luxurious hotel accommodations,a decadent 10,000 square foot full service Spa & hair Salon and fine dining in Desmond's Restaurant & Lounge. All of these amenities are easily accessible to our guests. When you come to East Wind you get the feeling of a true destination wedding rather than just going to a traditional catering hall.
Tell us why you decided to go into the wedding industry.
After owning & operating a restaurant for 18 years, catering seemed to be a natural transition. From there came a love of working with Bride's and helping to create their 'fantasy wedding'.
Tell us about some of the most unique events you've hosted?
We have done some outrageous 'platinum weddings' to elegant intimate weddings. All of them are unique in their own way. Some of our bride's have brought in specialty lighting technicians and have completely transformed
How far in advance should a couple start looking for and book their catering hall?
Times have changed. It used to be that Brides & Grooms would book their wedding almost 2 years out, sometimes more. Lately,a lot of short term
weddings have been booked (about 6 months out). But in order to get the date that you absolutely want, we recommend at least a year to a year and a half out.
How can you help couples 'customize' their special event?
At East Wind, we offer a complimentary Wedding Planner to help assist them in any way they need. Once the wedding is booked the next step is to help get them started booking their vendors. At that point is when we also discuss different ways to enhance their wedding. We have relationships with various vendors all with their own talents, from custom linens, to specialty music and lighting & entertainment.
East Wind is the only true Wedding Destination on Long Island, with the finest cusine and unsurpassed service, we are dedicated to make this special day become a memory that will be etched in your hearts forever. So why not Spend the day you will always remember in a place that you will never forget.
