Sands Point Preserve

Long Island




Drive through the gates of Sands Point Preserve, and you’re transported to another time – one of a gilded era of Gold Coast grandeur and elegance. The Guggenheim Estate was designed for entertaining in the glamorous style that defined the early 20th century. Today, these exquisite mansions and expansive grounds are available for your extraordinary day. Step into the legendary Gatsby era, experience the rich cultural history of this beautifully preserved site – and create an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. On the Preserve’s 216 acres are a Celtic castle, a roaring ‘20s mansion, beautiful gardens, and the Great Lawn – making a truly unique wedding celebration possible as your options for theme, setting, and ambiance are boundless. The Hempstead House features a Rose Garden and terrace with panoramic views of the Long Island Sound and beachfront—both are beautiful locations for open-air or tented ceremonies and receptions and offer the perfect backdrop for your formal wedding portraits. The Preserve offers venues for weddings of every style and size – from intimate gatherings to grand affairs.
