Oheka Castle in Long Island is an enchanting venue that transports you back to the Gilded Age. This stunning estate was built in 1919 for financier Otto Hermann Kahn, and it is now listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The castle boasts 32 guestrooms, elegant ballrooms, a grand staircase, and breathtaking gardens that are perfect for your wedding day.
One of the best things about the Oheka Castle is the outdoor space and views. The castle's gardens are meticulously landscaped, providing a picturesque backdrop for your wedding ceremony or reception. The views of the sprawling estate from the gardens and balconies are simply breathtaking, and the sunset views over the Long Island Sound are not to be missed.
Inside the castle, the grand ballroom is equally impressive, with its soaring ceilings, intricate woodwork, and sparkling chandeliers. The room is spacious enough to accommodate a large wedding party, yet intimate enough to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

The castle's historic architecture and lush landscapes offer a wealth of backdrops, textures, and colors to play with. I particularly love the castle's grand staircase, which provides a dramatic entrance for the bridal party and makes for a beautiful photo opportunity.
There are also plenty of great locations for photos nearby. The charming town of Huntington, with its historic buildings, quaint shops, and waterfront views, provides a picturesque backdrop for portraits.
