The Mansion at Oyster Bay

One South Woods Road
Woodbury, NY 11797Directions


One of the few preserved estates built in the early twentieth century, the Mansion at Oyster Bay has artfully upheld much of the authentic splendor of the Gatsby era while incorporating modern accents and amenities. You’ll notice its timeless charm the moment you set foot in the foyer, where you’ll be greeted by a roaring fireplace, glistening gold accents and black and white marble floors. A breathtaking marble staircase serves for an unforgettable entrance. The elegant ballroom looks out onto the brick patio, which beckons an al fresco ceremony or cocktail hour. With opulence around every corner, the Mansion at Oyster Bay can be yours for one magical day or night.

Gary at the Mansion at Oyster Bay is so wonderful! He was so accommodating, easy to work with and the place is beautiful!!!! The food and service was amazing. One thing I love so much about the mansion is that there are so many beautiful spots to take pictures indoors.

Mansion at Oyster Bay 10/10 -  Perfect from start to finish. We had an unbelievable experience getting married here. Gary was easy to work with and answered questions whenever I had them. The maitre’d Mike, and bridal attendant, Natalie, were so helpful all day. I truly can’t sing the praises of this venue and staff enough. Also, the food is *chefs kiss*

I do not even know where to begin when it comes to working with Gary Schneider at the Mansion at Oyster Bay. We booked the venue the first time we walked in and it was not even set up for viewings as we saw it during the height of COVID in June 2020. That speaks to how special this place truly is. Gary loves what he does and takes such pride in the venue- it was no question for us! I did not have an ounce of stress the entire process because I knew the team at the mansion would deliver. We met Michael later on in the process and he was a true gem- professional, accommodating, passionate…ugh, I could go on forever. Natalie was my bridal attendant and, as expected, she was just as wonderful! I would not change a single thing about my entire day. I also wish I could see Gary, Michael, and Natalie on a regular basis because they are each a ray of positivity you want in your life, especially on your special day. Do not think twice, this is your venue.
