An unbelievably impressive wedding venue with super elegant interior design, immaculate gardens and a service level that is beyond compare. These days the buzzword in weddings is intimate. Intimate affair. Intimate ceremony. ‘Oh we just had an intimate get-together’. That kinda thing. And a lot of that language and change of thinking when it comes to weddings has obviously come about because of the pandemic. Events needed to be smaller in order to lower the risk etc. And if the trend continues, past the pandemic, I’m all for it. It’s great to be able to actually spend time with your loved ones on the big day, and maybe splash more of the budget on them, because you can. However, nothing beats a big wedding! You know, when the size of your guest list would scare Elton John. Or when the buffet table looks like something from Roman mythology. And when the marrying couple are meeting multiple cousins on their wedding day for the first time. Those kinds of weddings are great! And today’s wedding HYPERLINK “https://www.leonardspalazzo.com/” \n _blankvenue is certainly one where capacity is never an issue, Leonard’s Palazzo. A huge celebration space located in the Village of Great Neck in Long Island, with multiple reception and ceremony locations both inside, and out. Oh, and they have recently renovated, and now have a capacity of up to 3000… Now that’s a wedding!
Leonard’s Palazzo is a luxurious wedding venue on New York’s North Shore, that has been hosting breathtaking events for over half a century. Renowned for its glamorous galas, black tie affairs and unwavering standards – this dreamlike event space is the very peak of opulence. As I mentioned earlier, it has gone through some major improvements recently, and that has significantly increased its capacity, as well as add many more modern amenities. Leonard’s Palazzo has hosted some of New York’s most prestigious wedding day’s, and their well-established reputation for outstanding service and a stunningly beautiful property both indoors and out means that you can rest assured that your big day will be perfect from start to finish.
One of the major takeaways you’ll find when looking at the design of Leonard’s Palazzo wedding venue, is their uniquely brilliant juxtaposition of Old World architecture with New World innovations. For instance, one of the most sought after portrait locations at Leonard’s is their 2-story crystal chandelier that hangs in the center of their sweeping staircase. A wonderfully impressive, yet intricately beautiful piece of art which leads you into just some of their HYPERLINK “https://www.leonardspalazzo.com/gallery/” \n _blankballrooms, which are all fitted with the latest modern luxuries. Like kinetic lighting, Onyx topped bars and super-fast wireless internet. And again these ballrooms are decorated in the most extravagant way, with hand-painted 17th century-themed murals and trumpet vine covered trellises – all lovingly created to back-drop your special moments.
If you choose to have your wedding ceremony at Leonard’s Palazzo, you have the choice of tying the knot in the Colonnade, or outdoors on any one of the venue’s pretty patios. You’ll also have the freedom to choose a spot within their enduringly romantic gardens. And when it comes to receptions, you have at least 6 ballrooms to choose from, each with their own theme and differing capacity. So don’t worry, if you don’t intend on inviting 1000 loved ones to your big day, there is an intimate celebration space for you too! My personal favorite is HYPERLINK “https://www.leonardspalazzo.com/gallery/the-holiday-parisian-room/” \n _blankThe Holiday & Parisian Room, a silken heaven that feels like an authentic open-garden Renaissance Palazzo, but in Long Island!
If your wedding guests aren’t wow’d by the decor at Leonard’s Palazzo, they’ll certainly be impressed by the ultra-high level of service. The state-of-the-art kitchens on-site are beyond compare, and the award-winning cuisine they create is some of the best I’ve seen, or tasted! Led by an internationally trained and acclaimed master chef, and his highly trained associates, Leonard’s creates award-winning food on a massive scale, without losing an inch of quality. And it’s not just the food, their drinks are unbelievable too, with impeccably trained mixologists always on hand to craft any creative cocktail you can dream up.
