  • This venue was a dream come true for my husband and I. We were looking for a venue with an indoor and outdoor option along with a few other things and Sands Point fit the bill! We loved working with Moe and Emily. They're both SO quick and responsive, it's incredible. The guests cannot stop raving about how beautiful the castle was and some were so surprised because they've lived in the area for decades and did not know such a place existed! We had the ceremony outside and the reception inside and it was perfect. Our vendors have all worked with Moe in the past so everyone communicated so well and it all jived together without me even having to worry. On the day of I didn't take care of a single thing because it was running so smoothly. I can't stop dreaming about how beautiful it was and if I had to do it all over again, I would do it at the Hempstead House at Sands Point!
