We have only wonderful things to say about our wedding at The Village Club At Lake Success. We worked with Barry, who was NOTHING short of amazing, from day one. There were a few unexpected hiccups along the way, like with anything, but we felt confident moving forward and working with Barry through it all. With so many moving parts, it is so important to work with someone who crosses their T’s and dots their I’s, especially with a type A bride. It is so hard to picture everything coming together with so many moving parts but with the hard work of someone like Barry, it is so very possible and exceeded many of our expectations. The whole day and night went incredibly smooth, which was not what we thought whatsoever, we expected craziness and havoc, but Barry literally took care of it all, and just so effortlessly. In terms of our bridal attendant, Amy, oh my goodness, all the ladies LOVED her. Amy was superb as well. She was on top of all of us, in the best way, making sure we were all well fed and hydrated. She was our eyes, ears, brain, and SO much more. Barry and Amy together, A. DREAM. TEAM.
My daughter and son-in-law were married at the Village Club in September. It was truly the most spectacular night and any planning leading up to it that involved the venue was seamless. Barry was uber responsive and on top of every single detail as we planned the wedding and of course the night of the wedding. I’m a very detail oriented person but with Barry running the show I knew that we we were in good hands. The space is perfect – not overdone at all but it exudes an elegant and warm feeling. The grounds are beautiful for pictures and an outdoor ceremony/ cocktail hour if you’re in that season. I was enjoying all of our guests so I didn’t have time to eat but everyone raved about the food. In addition to it being delicious and more than plentiful the presentation was spectacular. The service was excellent and I need to give a shout out to Mariana, my daughter’s bridal attendant. Unfortunately Amy had covid and we missed her but again Barry was on it and Mariana worked out great. She anticipated anything that we could possibly need including making sure that our car was loaded up at the end of the evening. I can’t possibly thank Barry and everyone else that worked that night enough!
My husband & I got married at The Village Club at Lake Success in September. We immediately loved the Village Club due to the gorgeous space outside for the ceremony, the modern feel & understated nature of the venue. However, what really set it apart from other venues was Barry, Amy & their team. Barry immediately made us feel comfortable, he is incredibly responsive, easy to work with & goes above and beyond to make sure your day goes perfect. I had the utmost confidence in the day going as planned due to having Barry to work with. He made the process as stress-free & easy as possible. I would highly recommend working with Barry & having your event at the Village Club, it was truly perfect!
As the mother of the bride, I can’t rave enough about our experience with Barry Rosenthal and the entire staff at the Village Club of Lake Success. We went to contract in July 2019 for a May 2020 wedding. Needless to say we postponed it two times. Barry worked with us through each contract revision, explaining our options, keeping us posted on protocol and when it looked like we were finally going forward, offered expert advice and guidance to deliver the most magical evening. Every question, (and there were many) was answered quickly and with complete information which allowed us to make decisions and move forward. Barry’s guidance was invaluable, whether it was how to lay out the room, menu selections or deciding whether we needed a wedding planner. Every suggestion was right on!
The venue hit home as soon as my daughter and future son-in-law walked through the doors. In their words it had a New York vibe while being affordable – the brick wall, the tasteful lighting, floor to ceiling windows overlooking Lake Success and a cocktail room, The Grill Room, that was warm and inviting. The “day of” went as smoothly as can be expected with Amy at our side throughout, attending to every detail and ensuring we kept to the schedule. Barry of course popped in regularly to check on us and provide updates. I need to pause to shine a bright light on Amy. I was encouraged by friends to hire a separate “day of” coordinator. “You can’t manage without one”. This was one of those decisions I tortured myself about. So to bring the discussion to a close we had a conference call with my daughter and Barry. I had her ask every question she was concerned about. The decision was to depend on Amy and was that ever the right decision. We felt cared for the entire day.
And now for the wedding – Each room looked as gorgeous as we had hoped. The ballroom was stunning aided by Florique Florists and lighting by Fusion. Our guests were blown away by the quality, variety, presentation and the taste of all the food. The only complaint I received several times was that the cocktail hour was so delicious that they didn’t leave enough room for dinner. While there were a few naysayers afraid to order salmon because they claimed it’s never cooked properly, they were totally outnumbered by the guests who said they never had such a delicious piece of salmon. The filet was like butter and how often do you have people raving about the side dishes?
Throughout the evening Barry and Amy checked in on each of us to see if we needed anything, were eating and generally having a good time. It was over way too soon and even packing up late at night was a pleasure. We were helped until both our cars were packed and ready to leave. As many say it goes way too fast. It’s over in a blink. And thank goodness for videos and pictures because I can’t wait to relive it all over again.
While there are many Country Club Venues on Long Island, there really isn’t any one Country Club anything like The Village Club at Lake Success. Why? Not only is the Club beautiful (for an outdoor ceremony/cocktail overlooking a lake or indoor with an outrageous brick wall) the staff pleasant, the grounds and building spotless, but there are 2 people that just make it all; well, perfect! Barry Rosenthal and Amy Chachkes.
We wanted a ‘farm’ feel in a contemporary setting; it happened. While we did rent items, Barry made sure to repurpose them. For our tasting, Barry answered a lot of questions, and Amy joined us. There were 6 of us with different ideas, questions and attitudes and they listened to everything. We came up with a menu that didn’t ‘break’ the bank, yet was everything to all of us. They actually talked us out of a few of the ‘extras’ when they clearly could have sold us.
On the day of my son and DIL’s wedding, the staff was friendly, professional and clearly understands Barry’s vision. They saw my 90 year old mom, and my DIL’s 96 year old Gramma, and made sure to put a ‘reserved’ sign at a table at the cocktail hour so they’d have seating close to the door.
Amy is Barry’s left hand; she pretty much can complete his sentences. They work ‘that’ well together. She is just a gift. She made sure our August wedding was super cool indoors. She helped with so much, kept us running on time and just made everything easy. We did have a day of coordinator; but Amy was that as well in addition to being our bridal attendant. They worked flawlessly together. My sandals, which had fit perfectly at home, kept slipping off as I walked. Amy had double sided tape, which was a godsend. She has an arsenal of tools and tricks for sure. While she’s there to make sure the bride is truly taken care of, she was there on the day of for all of us.
As our guests were leaving at the end of our amazing evening, I had brought in unique cookies and desserts. I thought they’d be displayed on a round table, simply for guests to take on their way out. Barry, could have left things like that, but he arranged for the farm barrels to be brought up front, and an unbelievable looking display was waiting complete with flowers, unique baskets, vases and lights.
Normally, months after an affair, one can always find something to ‘pick on,’ or change for ‘the next one’. Our wedding was in August. We are almost into January, and there is not one thing comes to mind to change. Forever grateful to Barry Rosenthal and Amy Chachkes for making our kids wedding an amazing night to remember.
Thank you for everything – we had the BEST day and could not have done it without the both of you. Every moment was perfect and the coordination and the smoothness of every aspect was imperative. We cannot believe after 2 years waiting for this celebration that it’s all a beautiful memory, and we truly couldn’t be more thankful.
We got married at the Village Club of Lake Success and are so happy that we chose this as our venue. The food was great, the venue was beautiful, and all of our guests had a great time. Barry and Amy were extremely helpful and guided us throughout the entire day. The staff at the village club were true professionals and made sure that the entire day went as planned. We highly recommend the Village Club at Lake Success as a wedding venue!
We had a vision of what we wanted for that day and you did everything in your power to make that a reality….and then some.
Amy and Barry have an amazing team and work together efficiently. They made my wedding run smoothly. Barry makes you feel like you’re talking with a good friend and Amy was always by my side making sure I had everything. They were on top of the vendors making sure their work was done correctly and as I wished. Lastly, they personally recommended what to combine in the menu , popular items and signature drinks! Thank you so much.
I’ve been trying to find the right words to write back but in full transparency there aren’t enough words to describe how perfect and magical our wedding was! We are still on cloud nine on how everything turned out! Barry and Kevin did an OUTSTANDING job! They both went above and beyond to make sure we had the wedding of our dreams and boy did they succeed! They made sure we had everything that we needed through the day and night! Every single expectation was meant!
Our guests have not stopped raving about the venue, the food and of course you and your staff! The amount of texts and phone calls that we have received from our friends and family is overwhelming!
Their bridal party had the best time and they couldn’t stop thanking us for throwing the best wedding ever!
Most importantly, Julia and Andrew were so happy with everything from start to finish and they both were sad to leave at the end of the night!
Thank you does not even begin to express our gratitude! We never believed it could actually be true, that we could be the bride and groom and be COMPLETELY STRESS FREE. We know that there must have been tiny bumps along the way to handle on our wedding day, but you all handled them so seamlessly and quietly that we had ZERO idea. We spent the entire day and night in the moment, enjoying, happy as can be.
The Hospital Engineering Society of Greater New York would like to extend its thanks to The Golf Club at Lake Success for hosting our 2021 Summer Social on August 19, 2021. The evening was a tremendous success. The Executive Board and myself were truly impressed by the service provided by your staff, as it made our vision of a prosperous networking event come to fruition. From the décor and setup, to the professionalism and courteousness of the staff [at] the various food stations and the floor, it all came together to provide our attendees with a pleasurable environment in which to collaborate and enjoy the evening. We look forward to working with you again next year and welcome your feedback to help us take this event to the next level. Partnerships with venues such as yours are vital to the growth of our organization. You are truly appreciated.

Thank you! You helped make a night that wasn’t supposed to be, one of the best night of our lives. Every promise was fulfilled, and then some. From the promised warm pretzel rolls to the amazing service for each guest, the night was perfect. The best promise that was fulfilled was our amazing female bridal attendant. Amy was the icing on the cake…pun intended.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for such an amazing wedding night. Barry and his team were on point and made everything flow seamlessly throughout the wedding! All of our guest were amazed about the beautiful venue and the fantastic food during cocktail hour!
Barry and his team did a fantastic job for my daughters wedding. It was stress free and easy. Everyone raved how wonderful the party was. The staff was so attentive to us and my party guests. I couldn’t have asked for a better team. They were top notch! Special thanks goes to Kevin our party coordinator. He was amazing. I would highly recommend this venue and team to my family and friends.
Our wedding was better than any dream, any fantasy, and any fairytale, and that was almost entirely because of the Village Club at Lake Success. Friends and family called it a “hidden gem,” with incredible food and service, gorgeous views, and an overall classy and sophisticated ambiance. Nestled between NYC and the expanse of Long Island suburbs, the Village Club beautifully defined the wedding of our dreams.
Just wanted to thank you again for an INCREDIBLE wedding. We had the best time and so did all of our guests. Everyone loved the food and the room / venue was all just so stunning. Thank you for making everything run smoothly despite any hiccups that may have occurred. I also just wanted to let you know how great Amy was. She was so helpful to me, Elliot, my mom, with the kids, and everyone who she interacted with. I can’t believe it was only her first day! She was so sweet. I wish we could do it all again. Now I am just dying to be a guest at a wedding there!
If you are looking for a stunning venue with amazing food and staff then SERIOUSLY look no further. Barry went above and beyond in SO many ways to make sure myself and now husband were taken care of the entire night. We had a few mishaps with vendors and he was there every step of the way to ensure things got taken care of so that we did not need to stress. Barry, we truly have no words. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for throwing us an incredible wedding and bringing so much zen to our night. Kevin, my bridal attendant was also SO incredible I don’t even know where to begin. Kevin, thank you for taking care of me and our bridal party all day into night. You made sure all of our needs were met and were always one step ahead of the game. You are such a pro and brought the best energy to our day. Our friends and family have not stopped raving about how amazing of a night this was and how beautiful the venue grounds were. They also could not get over how absolutely delicious, incredible, and creative the food was. If you are looking to have the BEST wedding with the most attentive staff and the most incredible atmosphere you have found your spot. THANK YOU Barry, Kevin, and the entire Village Club at Lake Success staff from the bottom of our hearts!!!
All of our friends and family have been raving to us not only at the wedding but all day long how incredible the wedding was. The dessert parade and cocktail hour food were big favorites, and everyone said the steak was so perfectly cooked, and the wedding cake was fantastic! The food was so amazing all around! Zeyar can’t stop talking about the lamp chop pops and I’ve been dreaming of those tuna cones all day long. We had so many out of town guests, and they were just completely floored by the venue, the entire night and saying it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to! We know we had a lot of questions through all the changes with covid, but you were always patient with us and so easy to work with. We are so thankful to have had you throughout all of this. I couldn’t have asked for a better time planning the wedding with you. This wedding exceeded every expectation I had, and I can’t wait to come back for another event in the future!!!
