Most people want to have their weddings in beautiful and idyllic locations. For many people, the ideal wedding venue looks like a beautiful Gilded Age mansion towering above immaculate lawns, gardens and fountains.
Seems a little bit unrealistic for the average wedding, doesn’t it? What most people don’t know, however, is that such a wedding venue exists — and it is less than an hour away from New York’s city limits by car!
Even people who generally live humble lives often splurge on a luxurious venue for their wedding nights. Sometimes it is important to mark life’s great events with a dash of the extraordinary. Fortunately for people in the New York area, Oheka Castle weddings make this possible as a magnificent wedding venue that seems to have been lifted right from the pages of Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.
Oheka Castle is an estate that was built by the estimable philanthropist, investor, patron of the arts, and businessman Otto Hermann Kahn in 1919. The estate, which is located on the north shore of Long Island in the beautiful town of Huntington, is now a historic hotel and wedding venue.
Oheka Castle (named as an acronym for its creator Otto HErman KAhn), a 109,000 square foot home with 127 rooms, was the second largest private home and remains the second largest privately owned residence to this day. The home, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, famously inspired the mansion in legendary author F. Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby.
Today, Oheka Castle is open to the public for tours, meals, accommodations, and private events. Oheka Castle weddings are sought after by clients from all over the world for the peerless beauty of the venue.
In addition to the stately elegance of the house itself, the Oheka Castle compound boasts one of the most beautiful French gardens on the continent. Designed by the prestigious Olmsted brothers — the geniuses behind the design of both Central Park and Prospect Park — the winding gravel paths, austere fountains, and dazzling hedges of the garden make a storybook backdrop for a wedding party.
Oheka Castle weddings are unforgettable experiences in New York City’s backyard. People from all across the globe seek out this beautiful wedding venue due to the stunning architecture of the main house, the beauty of the garden, and the wide range of amenities offered by the attentive staff.
