The Castle at Oyster Bay

Kat and Kevin met through mutual friends. But those who know them well know that they met at the drift, and then years later at a friend’s birthday party.  Kevin and Kat knew that they had a connection since day one, but timing is everything, as they say.

It wasn’t until they met again when things began to sparkle. They both knew the second time that they met was “It.” “It” was a match made in heaven.  Both were the same person..and knew something special had happened. They had just met their soulmate! 

This was one the most classic love stories we’ve ever heard. We were very glad that everything happened the way that it did. And even more excited when they asked Around Town Entertainment to perform at their wedding at the Mansion at Oyster Bay in Woodbury, NY!

When it comes to weddings, The Mansion at Oyster Bay stands majestically in the heart of 120 perfectly manicured acres in Woodbury, Long Island. The ambiance of this former magnificent Gold Coast estate is rich with elegance and hospitality, but updated with modern amenities. 

Originally designed by renowned architects Delano and Aldrich, this stunning Gold Coast estate was constructed in 1918. Throughout the decades, it went through a number of owners and inhabitants, and is one of the few properties of its kind that still stands today. Many of the decorative elements have survived since the 1920s when they were added by the owner, art collector Alyssa Mellon Bruce. An avid traveler and socialite, Mellon Bruce hosted many Gatsby-style parties throughout the 1920s and ‘30s, and this atmosphere survives today! We were so fortunate to be able to experience this Long Island Gold Coast luxury to be able to share it with Kat and Kevin in an unforgettable setting!

As the bride and groom made a grand entrance down a sweeping staircase into the lobby, they were greeted by a decorated stately black and white marble floor. Wow! As guests headed outside they witnessed the beautiful outdoor ceremony set up on the brick-lined patio. Around Town Entertainment provided a guitarist for the music ceremony. The bride and groom walked through a charming arch covered in flowers to say their vows in the garden gazebo. Surrounded by family and friends, it was a beautiful moment as both newlyweds sealed their marriage with a kiss, flanked by nature’s beauty all around. 

After the magical ceremony, guests enjoyed an elegant cocktail hour on the second floor balcony, while taking in the beautiful atmosphere throughout the Oyster Bay property. When evening arrived, guests were treated to delicious food and music from Around Town Enteratinment’s Authority Band. The refined ballroom, complete with dark wood accents and sparkling chandeliers was the perfect place to dance the night away as the wedding band played hits from The Beatles, Queen, and Beach Boys. 

The Authority Band brings high energy experience to every event. They have elite, talented and studied musicians that have toured with some of today’s top artists. Book them today!

Congratulations, Kat and Kevin!
