We had our beach wedding at the Pavilion. It was the most GLORIOUS day ever. It was our second marriage and we knew we wanted an intimate beach wedding, beach balls, lots of candles, great food, and the amazing sunset. T, Maureen and the entire staff were over the top professional, helpful and accommodating. They made my dream wedding come true. I rate them a 10!!

We got married at the Sunken Meadow Pavilion and it was an unforgettable, joyful experience for us, our families, and guests. The park and Pavilion is beautiful and the perfect place to host a special event. The Lessing's Hospitality Group was extremely helpful (especially Emily) for providing ideas, support and accountability. All the staff was professional and the quality vendors made it a turn-key experience.

I can’t say enough how great our wedding experience was. Tyrek and Emily were there to help us every step of the way and leave us with nothing to worry about. The weather was perfect, the staff was phenomenal, food amazing, and they definitely know how to party. Our guests said all night how happy the staff was throughout the wedding. 1000% recommend this place for a perfect fun low-key but classy wedding.

 Getting married is a huge moment. We saw the venue on one of the walks we had at the beach. The place had the most beautiful energy you can think of. Some halls can feel too commercial.. this felt like a destination wedding. Tourek picked up our call and his calmness helped us make the decision on selecting this venue. So many options for us to choose from. The food was divine. I could not believe the options we had to choose from.. The staff was soo accommodating and kind. I hugged almost all of them on the way out.. I wold defiantly recommend this venue for so many reasons


Love at first sight when I went to visit this venue and selected it for my wedding right away! Tarek is very nice and patient with all my questions. Maureen and Dave were really helpful and made sure everything run smoothly on my wedding day. Had a really good time here for my big day!! Thank you!

The view of the sound from the venue was breathtaking. Working with Tarek was amazing super laid back and flexible, no stress at all! Day of, Dave and Maureen were the absolute best! They were there with anything we needed, so helpful! My guests are still raving about the food too. Really was the best day of my life and the staff truly helped me achieve that feeling! Thank you so much!

The Pavilion at Sunken Meadow is a beautiful venue by the beach with an amazing view of the Sunset. Tarek Mostafa is a true gentleman. His attention to detail is exceptional. I would definitely recommend this space for any occasion. Great food, beautiful space, and awesome staff.

Got married at the Pavilion at Sunken Meadow. I cannot say enough about the entire staff. They were amazing from start to finish. We had a little different style wedding as it was more of a cocktail party from start to finish (with insane amount of food!)
