The Inside Scoop
FROM THE KNOT EDITORS
The First Look
The Old Field Club in Setauket, New York, is a classic and old-fashioned beach club right off the coast of a lagoon. The location of The Old Field Club is about 60 miles east of Manhattan, making it a mini destination for people who live in the tristate area. Plenty of airports in New York make it easy for out-of-town guests to find flights at any time and The Old Field Club recommends lodging at Holiday Inn or the Marriott Courtyard nearby. Have your wedding ceremony in a lush outdoor setting with tall wild grass, trees, wildlife and a blue body of water behind you. After the ceremony, The Old Field Club offers two banquet rooms to fit parties of all sizes.
The Ballroom accommodates up to 180 people and provides a spectacular view of the ocean. It incorporates a 25-foot bar for cocktail receptions and a large dance floor for when the guests get loosened up. The design motif is simple elegance with brass chandeliers, a wood ceiling and a working fireplace. The room also includes large French doors that lead to the expansive deck.
The Lagoon Room is the space at The Old Field Club for smaller, more intimate receptions. It includes floor-to-ceiling windows for a view of the lagoon that slide out for a screened patio and open-air terrace.
What You Should Know
The Old Field Club takes the utmost pride in providing the best possible service for weddings, so it only hosts one couple at a time. Because of only booking one wedding at a time, start times are often flexible. Couples must book at least 120 guests for weddings on Saturdays, while Friday and Sunday weddings have no minimum.
The couple receives the services of a wedding planner who helps to coordinate the event and bring anything their imaginations hold into reality. The planner also matches the couple with preferred vendors including florists, officiants, entertainment, photographers and limousine drivers. The bride gets the use of a private suite for preparing for the ceremony and the reception. The wedding package includes custom linens, napkins, place cards and maps with directions for invitations.
During the wedding reception, the couple gets the services of a personal maître d' who greets arriving guests. While the couple takes photos, guests enjoy a cocktail hour in the Lagoon Room that includes passed hors d'oeuvres. Bar service is open and The Old Field Club provides top-shelf liquors, beers and wines. After working with the wedding planner to create a menu for the wedding, wait staff serves the meal in a prix fixe fashion.
In addition to the personal level of service the staff at The Old Field Club offers, couples have the opportunity to take wedding photos in front of several scenic backdrops on the facility and in surrounding areas.
