This beautiful outdoor ceremony of Alana & Mike felt as a fairytale unfolding before our eyes. The historic estate created a romantic narrative that felt like a chapter out of a novel. It was truly their very own… “Happily ever after.”
Hempstead House is the embodiment of Gold Coast opulence. It is one of four mansions on the grounds of the Guggenheim Estate. Designed by architects Hunt & Hunt in 1912, the building features an exterior of granite and Indiana limestone. This 50,000 square foot mansion offers 40 rooms, including a 60-foot-tall entry foyer. The first and second floors of the Hempstead House measure over 1.5 acres. After falling in love, Alana & Mike decided to move forward with planning their wedding at the Sands Point Preserve.
The wedding weekend unfolded with their closest family in friends by their side. The celebration began with a warm welcome to guests at their intimate rehearsal dinner just around the corner from their residence in New York. It was a joyful time full of laughter and tears as stories were shared throughout the evening.
On the day of the wedding, Alana and Mike stood before their loved ones surrounded by ivory florals. Alana’s brother so thoughtfully led the ceremony as they promised forever. Every element of the ceremony was so intentionally designed and planned.
Guest were met with signature drinks and tasteful hors d’oeuvres out in the courtyard prior to entering the mansion. It was a time for long awaited embraces.
The guest enjoyed a grand celebration designed to perfection by Type A Society. Candlelight trees graced the tables of the main room with the center fountain dripping with florals. Speeches that will be cherished for generations were given, and glasses were raised in celebration.
Alana and Mike danced the night away as they stepped into the next chapter of their lives.
