Excellent service-Beautiful location    posted 10/28/2013

I was very pleased with everything about Timber Point. I loved working with Miriam. She was so professional, and very friendly. She worked with me on every detail and was very accomodating. She made sure all the landscaping looked fresh and even personally changed out the flowers in the arbor for fresh fall ones. I can't say enough about how wonderful it was to deal with Miriam. The day of the wedding the staff was so professional and served the meals in a style where all guests at that table were served at the same time. Jason, our Maitre D, took care of us so well, he treated us like royality. Everything flowed beautifully due to the staff at Timber Point.

BEST CHOICE!!!    posted 10/12/2013

The Lessing's Mansion at Timber Point was the right wedding venue for us. We looked at about 10 places before booking with them so by that point we really knew what we wanted and to look for. The biggest thing we wanted was the ability to have our 2 golden retrievers at the ceremony, so obviously it would have to be outdoors. I loved how the the mansion has a nice size outdoor patio facing the Great South Bay, and a beautiful pergola where the alter would be. And since all of the other venues we looked at prior didn't have the "right" backup plan for us in case of inclement weather, we would've had to move the ceremony indoors - which meant no doggies. That was a deal breaker for us. The mansion has a huge tent outdoors that would've accommodated the ceremony beautifully AND still allow our precious pups to be there. So that's really how my husband and I decided to book with Timber Point. But luckily the weather on our special day was beyond gorgeous. The price per person was very good compared to other places we looked, and the food was awesome!!! The maitre D (we had Jacob) and bridal attendant (oops, forgot her name) were great. Very attentive. We didn't have to worry about a single thing. They set everything up just as we wanted and our special day couldn't have gone any better! Thank you Timber Point!!!

Jason rocked my world!!!!    posted 8/6/2013

There are pros and cons for having your event here. The pros outweighed the cons for us which is why we went with it and am so glad we did!

The cons:
~The room set up doesn't allow for the dance floor anywhere except in the corner. This meant anyone wanting to see what was going on HAD to leave their seats. A lot of our guests didn't do so. So we missed out in having a lot of people in our pictures.
~The bridal suite is on the small size. If you have a large bridal party, it gets a little cramped everyone getting ready in it.
~If there is bad weather, there are only so many places for pictures/video. We couldn't get much video downstairs while they were setting up because it was too noisy.
~People had to go through the reception room in order to get to the ceremon outside. While it didn't matter too much to me, other brides may want the set up to be more of a surprise.

Pros:
~Jason was the best Matre' D EVER!!!!! There were a few issues the day of that we never even knew of until after the fact and after he took care of it. He even went out of his way to go find us the mead that was promised to us. He even came up with a few surprises for us (me). Apparently my husband was in on the surprise and couldn't wait to see my reaction! He was everywhere and nowhere at the same time. So wonderful to work with and I can't thank him enough.
~One wedding at a time. We had the Sunday twilight wedding, there was nobody before us and nobody after us and let me tell you.... it was WONDERFUL not worrying about another party going on and hearing their music or having people we don't know walking into our party or our guests walking off.
~Everyone was ranting and raving about the food. It tasted WONDERFUL!!!! They gave us a plate of each of the dinner options to share between me and my husband and gave us 2 steaks to take home that night.
~It is a Lessing's company and they hold up to everything that is in that name. The service was great, decoration was wonderful, worked with us with anything we asked. Couldn't ask for more

An amazing venue and backdrop for a summer wedding    posted 7/19/2013

We fell in love the minute we walked through the doors. Even though it was January we could still envision what our June wedding would look like. The garden in full bloom. The arbor with flowers and tulle where we would say our vows. The breathtaking views of LI Sound.

On June 23rd the vision came to life. Not one thing was out of place. They had new wood floors throughout and new tents in the back for shade. It was even better than when we had fallen in love!


Walking in our guests were treated to Champagne with strawberries or sparking cider for the ceremony.

Our placecards were done on Ghiradelli chocolates, which our attendant put out on a table in the shape of a heart with candles all around. The cake table was exquisite with the cake surrounded by votives in all different shape and size jars.

The bridal attendant, the Maitre D and all the staff were so kind and helpful. I never had to ask for a drink, I turned around and it was handed to me.

The bridal suite had everything I would ever need in case I forgot something. A selection of beverages were brought up and we had breakfast brought up for the children in the bridal party before the wedding.

If you want to feel and be treated special on your wedding day, this is the place. One wedding at a time. You are their only concern and they let you know it.
