Tucked on on the North Fork of Long Island, Lessing’s The Vineyards offer soon-to-be-wed couples an enchanting backdrop for their big day. Intertwining natural splendor with a sense of effortless elegance that goes hand-in-hand with winery weddings, this scenic retreat is truly picture perfect for beginning your new life together with up to 250 guests. Whether you say your “I do’s” surrounded by finely manicured gardens or exchange your vows in an elegantly appointed indoor setting, you are sure to have an unforgettable celebration at The Vineyards.

Upon arrived on the property, guests are welcomed by the stunning sight of an impressive manor house encompassed by acres of flourishing gardens and twining grapevines that expand out towards the horizon. Prepare for one of the most important moments of your life in the bride and grooms suite, where you can unwind by lounging on a private terrace or enjoying a drink or two at the exclusive suite bar. Make your way down a charming garden path to meet your beloved beneath the shade of a romantic white wedding arbor, sharing your first kiss as spouses on the scenic brick paved terrace surrounded by blooming flowers and antique-style street lamps. Continue the festivities in an airy white tent erected above the vertaile garden patio, which can be left open to the air in warmer months or enclosed for chillier days. If an indoor occasion is more your style, envision kicking off married life in the lovely chapel, where guests can enjoy the heartwarming ceremony beneath a wedding arch as they look on from chiavari chairs set up on a plush jewel-toned carpet. Enjoy a delicious meal and dance the night away in the Vineyard’s showstopping ballroom, a sophisticated space complete with wide windows overlooking the grounds, ornately carved ceilings, and a soft color palette that can be suited for any wedding theme or style. Recessed lighting and sconces cast a romantic glow over the room, while the eye catching double staircase provides an ideal location for making a grand entrance. Nearly endless backdrops for vibrant wedding portraits are at your disposal, whether you are kissing beneath the gazebo or posing between rows of grapevines in the vineyard. Combine these memorable spaces with first class service, customizable menus, and helpful event coordinators to create an effortless experience. No matter which of these timelessly beautiful settings you select for your big day, The Vineyards will bring your wedding dreams to life!
