  • I have to admit, East Wind was not my first choice when I started to think about my wedding venue. But, we decided to tour East Wind first because it is the closest to our home. We ended up loving everything about it and Penny was amazing. Looking at your first venue is overwhelming because you don't even know what you're in for but Penny seriously made it effortless. I'm glad to say we left feeling like we didn't need to look elsewhere. This is only phase one and I can't wait to continue working with Penny & everyone at East Wind.

  • I looked at about 20 different venues throughout the course of 2 months (only had FH come to about 3 for initial visit and then the 3 that I narrowed it down to). We are so excited for our wedding at East Wind in their Veranda room in October 2020! The space is beautiful and they offer a great package which includes several reputable vendors so that we don't have to spend a ton extra on each service! Jennifer in Banquet Sales has been a pleasure to work with and very helpful with my many questions before, during, and since booking! They also host several wedding expos each year to make it easier to meet vendors & make appointments without having to make tons of phone calls and store visits. This is extremely helpful since I'm doing all the planning myself (with input from FH of course) to avoid the additional cost of a planner.

  • 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 (they were our first and last stop when we went wedding venue shopping..never even had to go anywhere else), 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 grounded 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 and w... Read more

  • East Wind was everything I could have imagined for my special day. Their staff was super professional and catered to my every need. Jennifer was amazing she guided me through all my uncertainties and made sure that I felt secure and happy in every decision that we needed to make. I was beyond happy with our maitre d. The waitstaff provided excellent service and the bartender was on point. It was a my dream fairytale... my only wish is to have a do-over to experience it all over again.

    Hi Natalie: We are so delighted to hear you are "beyond happy" with your wedding day. Thank you so much for sharing your review. Wishing you many years of wedding bliss! East Wind.

  • Let me start by stating that I never write reviews. After having my wedding this past Saturday at East Wind, I felt I needed everyone to know my experience. One word. AMAZING. Michele Testa was our wedding coordinator and she was always there and always responsive to our emails and calls, even when she wasn't in the office. We were assigned Luis as our Maitre D' and he was absolutely incredible. He was so organized and waited on me hand and foot. I was introduced to my bridal attendant the day of the wedding (I sadly forget her name) but she was there holding the train to my dress and getting my husband and I drinks and food the whole time. Her and Luis even packed some food for us later that night to keep in our hotel room. The food was INCREDIBLE. My husband and I plan on renewing our vows down the road and will 100% book with this venue again. I recommend this venue to everyone and anyone. Literally the best day of my life thanks to everyone at East Wind.

  • I couldn't have asked for a better experience from the moment I sat down with Tia (my wedding planner) until the very end of the event there wasn't a moment that wasnt amazing. The food was amazing the venue was gorgeous. The whole day was something my husband and I will never forget. East Wind truly exceeded all of our expectations.

  • Awesome! Penny F. Was our Banquet manager. She was timely with all her responses and helpful right up until the last few days before the wedding. She help to a ert a major problem between us and ADA. All was resolved amicably. Thanks to Penny the owner of East Wind and the owner of ADA. We were assigned Tony as Maitre'D. We had everything boxed and labeled and he set up everything exactly as we discussed. He watched the weather and made the right call for us to be outside. The guests raved about the grounds and the food. This wedding was a fairy tale that became a reality. It couldn't have happened anywhere but East Wind. They know how to make a bride feel special.

  • Highly recommend the Cottage at East Wind. Everything from beginning to end was exactly as we imagined and perfectly executed. We love it there it is beyond gorgeous both inside and out. From the moment we met Tia in sales we knew we were in the best of hands. She was kind, extremely knowledgeable and most importantly honest. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and get to know her. She answered any question we had quickly and was full of knowledge. The venue is enchanting. The bridal suite were a great place for the wedding parties to congregate and relax during the downtime. We had an outdoor ceremony--which was just breathtaking!!! Kathleen was our maitre d and I seriously cannot rave about her enough. She made my wedding into my DREAM wedding. She executes everything beautifully and doesn't miss a step. It was a pleasure and an honor to have my wedding here! Special shout out to my bridal assistant Barbara who became like a friend to us. She was always in arms reach when I ... Read more

  • I met Jennifer at a bridal expo and when my fiance and I went to tour the venue it was absolutely beautiful!!! Jennifer was awesome and gave us a very warm welcome and made us feel at home, the venue was like a little town that had everything you needed concerning a wedding. It had many great photo opportunities. It had an inn for guest to stay if they choose to. It had eateries that are to die for and a bakery that has vegan options for those who have that dietary need. It was just an overall wonderful experience for us, definitely one of he best we've been to.

  • when I was in contract they told me pretty much what I should be tipping everyone and I kind of let that go. I had my reception at the Cottage. I just want to say the bride doesn't have her own bathroom there I was with all my guess. 2nd I would go by myself with no help. They weren't much help at all with anything. By the end of the night everyone was leaving and they packed all my stuff on the dance floor and told me I had to take it over to their hotel. All of my guess left. So I had to walk out caring all my luggage all my flowers all my favors everything that was mine from the wedding and they expected me to walk to the hotel. One of the kitchen ladies was driving a golf cart and I asked her for a ride. I put all my stuff on a food chart and got on with my wedding dress on a dirty food golf cart. When me and my husband got to the front desk the own was rude very nasty man and said that was in are contract to get there on my own to the east winds hotel. I said I would like to see ...

  • I am in the very very beginning stages of wedding planning. The first thing I wanted to do was to find a venue. My first visit to the venue was impressive. My fiancé and I were accompanied by our moms. They were impressed as well. They agreed with us that this was our venue. Our Event manager Andrea was swet kind and informative. She showed us the property as if we had made a deposit. When we called back to say we wanted to be an East wind couple she took us on the tour again with the same patience she showed the first time. I'm looking forward to having my wedding here. Once it is over I will return to give more stars. However, so far so good.

  • The East Wind was our number one choice when it came to selecting a venue for our wedding. However, our experience with our banquet manager, Michele, was not the most pleasant experience. You would expect with a large vendor like a reception venue would be on top of their emails and phone calls, but it was not the case in our situation. We would wait days, sometimes even weeks without no phone call or email response. It was kind of absurd that we had to point this out to her before she got the ball rolling again with responding within an appropriate amount of time. In addition, she was pressuring us to give a tip to the maitre' d and the bridal attendant BEFORE the actual event. I'm sorry, but as far as I know, tips are generally given at the end of an event/service. We denied that forceful attempt to pressure us into giving a tip prior to the wedding after Michele pushed us several times to do so. We never felt like the bride and groom and if we asked a question more than once she wo... Read more
