      Philip Stone Caterers & The Hempstead House did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding!! The venue itself is gorgeous, and such a unique place. Emily and Moe are the best, they were super helpful and answered all of our questions. We had no worries leading up to the wedding, as we knew they would knock it out of the park – and they did! The food is excellent, the service is amazing, and the whole team was so great to work with!!

      Our wedding day was better than I could have ever imagined. Emily and Mo were very responsive and accommodating throughout the planning process (3 years in the making due to Covid), with multiple date changes, etc. The venue itself is out of a fairytale, a castle and gardens with stunning views of the Long Island Sound. The food was incredible, from cocktail hour in the gardens to dinner. Highly recommend Hempstead House for an amazing wedding.

      By far the best and unique venue in Long Island. The views are stunning, the Hempstead House made guests speechless and I continue to receive feedback from friends and family that it was the best wedding venue they have ever attended. My wedding photos are better than I imagine. Emily and Moe were on top of their game the entire wedding day and ran the show like you would not believe. I am happy and blessed that we were able to have a wedding that was unique, gorgeous and out do this world. The cocktail hour outside was a huge hit and the food was outstandingly delicious. Highly recommend!

      The team at the Hempstead house truly made my dream wedding come to life. They were supportive, honest, and extremely helpful throughout the whole planning process. The venue itself is unlike any other with the beautiful grounds for ceremony and cocktail hour to the gorgeous architecture inside for reception. The photo ops are endless!! I couldn’t recommend this venue enough!

      Truly Incredible
      Everything about this venue is incredible and the staff is the icing on the top. My husband and I had our wedding here in August – from the moment I inquired with Sands Point in 2021 they were so attentive. Their professionalism, flexibility and friendliness was so refreshing and made the planning process a breeze. Emily and Moe are simply the best. They were so hands on the day of – Moe even made me a plate of food at cocktail hour and made sure that I ate! I cannot recommend them enough. Thanks to them, we had our dream wedding.

      Outstanding day because of great food and service

      My daughter recently had her wedding and reception at the Hempstead House, part of the Sands Point Preserve. The place itself is beautiful and has a spectacular view. But more importantly the service was outstanding, and the food provided by Philip Stone Caterers was simply amazing in both taste and it’s unique style. The two lead people Emily and Mo were extremely attentive to all our needs throughout the whole planning process. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a great wedding reception.

      When we first got engaged, my fiancé and I knew that we wanted to get married at any venue where Moe and his team managed and catered. My sister had gotten married at the Hempstead House 5 years prior and our friends and family were still raving about her wedding. From the food to the venue to every minute detail. In looking around, we felt most at home at the Hempstead House and were excited for Moe and his team to make our wedding dreams come true. I’m a fairly particular person, and I immediately recognized and appreciated Moe’s attention to detail. Moe knew just how to bring our own individual personalities shine through every selection and detail. Both Moe and Emily responded to every email and call within an impressively quick timeframe, and always offered to help make everything easier for us and our families. We had plenty of questions (big and small) and they always always aimed to please. Moe lead us through every option and helped us bring in additional ways to really make the night about us. From recommendations on a band and bringing in additional furniture, to the cordial selection for our espresso bar, to the placement of the pool table for our after party, he made everything so special. My husband and I, and our entire family, were really able to relax and soak up every moment of our celebration just by knowing we were in Moe and Emily’s hands. Now it has been 2 years since our wedding, and our friends and family still share how memorable our wedding was, not only because of the beautiful venue and delicious food (get the lamp chops!), but also because how seamless everything was that day.

      Words cannot describe how thankful we are for you making our wedding so spectacular. Both our families are getting countless phone calls and text messages that guests said our wedding was the best wedding they have ever been too. But it wasn’t just the venue, decor, or the music that stood out, the food and service was remarkable. Everything was executed so perfectly. We are so thankful our dream wedding came to life. Our wedding at the Hempstead House was everything we ever wanted

      I’m not even sure where to begin because words won’t clearly express how much we truly appreciate every single thing you did for us and our team last week and over the past year. You made every minute of planning this event so much fun and somehow relaxing at the same time. Each and every guest, along with every member of our planning and décor team commented on how amazing everything was and how seamless things were run. Thank you again for everything and look forward to working together soon!
