Marrying in a French castle should be impossible without flying to Europe… but what if we told you it wasn’t? What if we told you that you could get married in a chateau of your very own at Oheka Castle, right on Long Island’s Gold Coast?
This stunning mansion has been dazzling guests for nearly 100 years. Oheka Castle was built in 1919 for the celebrated financier and arts patrol Otto Hermann Kahn as a luxurious getaway home where he could host the sort of parties that you find in the pages of The Great Gatsby -- in fact, Oheka was one of the inspirations for the 2013 Gatsby movie! Today, it is on the National Register of Historic Places and has hosted a century of celebrities from Charlie Chaplin to Heidi Klum. It is known as one of the most historic hotels and prestigious wedding venues in the world.
One look at estate and grounds and you’ll understand exactly why it is so famous. The mansion in a dreamy mix of French classical architecture and Art Nouveau elegance. You’ll wander under towering ceilings, up marble staircases, and into a majestic ballroom that can accommodate 400 guests for a sit down dinner -- though the entire space can host 1,000 people for a Gatsby-style, ongoing event!
Outside, you might think you’ve wandered into the grounds at Versaille as you stroll through formal gardens and across a sprawling lawn, or stop to admire yourself in the reflecting pool and enjoy the fountains. In winter, the estate becomes an icy wonderland, blanketed with snow. A wedding here will undoubtedly be a dream event. We can’t wait to see yours!
This is one of the most grandiose places for a Long island wedding.
