site for small wedding reception

Hi. I am planning a small wedding (50-60 people) and am looking for a place to have the reception. Ideally, I'd like someplace where (1) I could also have the ceremony and (2) there is a dance floor. I'd love to find someplace with either a garden or a water view (although I realize that may be asking too much). I'll consider restaurants as well as catering facilities. Any and all suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for your help.

Diane

P.S. I'd even be willing to consider places not on Long Island.

Hi. I am also having a small wedding and have 2 sites for you to consider....they are further west than what others have posted. What's great about both is that YOUR WEDDING IS THEIR ONLY WEDDING - even with a small guest list. A hard find. And the prices are comparable to places that have more than one wedding at a time....

Caffe on the Green, Bayside, NY. (www.cotg.com - i think) Its right off the Clearview Expwy and on the Clearview Golf Course. The building is a historical landmark and is the former residence of Rudolf Valentino and the former summer residence of Mayor LaGuardia. It is a rest/catering facility with the catering facility on the 2nd floor. They have 2 rooms - 1 with a min of 60, the other with a min of 80. The catering area is filled with windows for natural light and great views.....If the weather is warm, you can have the cocktail hour outside (they're landscaping is beautiful!) and the ceremony at the gazebo. I don't know if they can accomodate a ceremony in doors, but you might want to ask. The only reason we didn't go there was b/c the groom's mom can't climb stairs and, because its a historical facility, they can't retrofit it for an elevator. Ask for Dee.

The other suggestion is the Carriage House at Milleridge. Their minimum is 75 people and you are in your own building. No sharing. Again if the weather is warm, you can have the cocktail hour outside. (you'll need to ask about the ceremony.). They do all their baking on the premises. The food is great, the facilities are well maintained and very attractive. (The room has beautiful hardwood floors, brass chandliers and a working fireplace! Great value....esp. for a small affair. The price is great too - we're paying $72.90pp for a Sat eve event in March. That includes rose centerpieces, full open bar, an irish coffee and espresso cart and a cake i can customize myself! Their staff has been very friendly and accomodating. You can taste the food but you'll need to go when they're cooking for another affair - which is beneficial b/c you can see what you'll be getting. I've gotten great referrals from everyone I've spoken to.....

I had mine at the Swan Club (60 guests) and it was beautiful. They did have a dance floor, etc., and the grounds were gorgeous.

> My fiancee and I are having our wedding at the Thatched Cottage in Centerport, (Huntington area). The place is very very quaint, pretty inside, the outside grounds are gorgeus and we are getting married out there in a gazebo with cocktail hour outside to follow. GOOD LUCK!
