Have a Destination Wedding Right Here on Long Island!

Posted on

A destination wedding is one of the best ways to get married in a way that is uniquely you. Getting away for a wedding creates a memorable experience for you and your guests. It can involve a handful of close family and friends or can be as big as your imagination allows. However, it isn’t always practical to host a wedding a continent away. What if you could have all the benefits of a destination wedding without the distance? You’ll find that Atlantis Banquets and Events is one of the best Long Island wedding venues for a destination wedding close to home.

The Location

Atlantis Banquets and Events is located in Riverhead, Long Island at the gateway to Long Island Wine Country and the famous Hamptons. Set on the tranquil Peconic River, this resort is less than 80 miles from New York City and a short drive from Nassau and western Suffolk Counties. For many, this is the ideal choice for a wedding location as it feels worlds away in the desirable East End of Long Island yet close enough to be an easy drive for your guests.

Options and More Options

Whether you are looking for a classic ballroom with a water view in the Sea Star Ballroom or a unique venue where the walls come alive with tropical fish at the Long Island Aquarium, there is something for everyone with Atlantis Banquets and Events. Options include indoor, outdoor or riverfront wedding ceremonies, and cocktail hours.  Choose one or both venues to take advantage of all Atlantis Banquets and Events has to offer.

After the Party is Over

After your reception is over consider an after party on-site or walk into town to visit the local restaurants, bars and micro-breweries available. The next day guests can kayak or paddleboard along the Peconic River from our marina (in season), go on a wine or craft brew tour or visit historic landmarks like the Montauk Lighthouse and Deep Hollow Ranch. Hiking, biking, sailing, outlet shopping and famous beaches are all a short drive away from our resort.

Plenty of Accommodations

With destination weddings, quality accommodations are a must. The wedding party may need a home base and out-of-town guests will want a place to stay. This resort offers several  hotel options including the newly renovated Hyatt Place East End and the chic Preston House and Hotel with 20 distinct boutique rooms and suites.

As you can see, you don’t have to travel too far to have the destination wedding of your dreams. For more information about the options available at Atlantis Banquets and Events, contact our catering sales team today or call 631.574.8008. We look forward to creating an event you and your guests will remember forever!
