It doesn’t get more historic on Long Island’s legendary North Shore Gold Coast than Glen Cove Mansion. The former Pratt estate (Pratt Institute, Standard Oil) and its original 55 acres are ideal for destination weddings that elegantly blend the gentility of Audrey Hepburn’s Sabrina with the demands of today’s contemporary brides. The Mansion even has a European-trained executive chef.
In a leap into the 21st Century, Glen Cove Mansion has just announced a special offer to brides & grooms who may want to take their wedding memories with them -- on a new iPad 2. The Mansion is providing brides with the new iPad 2 already loaded with their wedding pictures. Brides need to book their 2011 wedding by April 30th* to qualify, but with the trend of booking weddings much more short term that ever before, the Mansion is stocking up on iPad 2s.
Glen Cove Mansion is the only mansion hotel on Long Island’s historic North Shore with 187 guest rooms, and many of the original appointments remaining in the historic Pratt family country house. Drawing on its 101-year heritage of first-class hospitality, from the moment brides and their guests drive through Glen Cove Mansion’s front entrance, they are welcomed into a world of elegance and gentility. The distinctive architectural appointments of the Mansion -- with its marble-paved Receiving Hall, the grand baronial staircase, glittering crystal chandeliers, elaborately carved marble mantelpieces, arched cross halls with original lunettes crowning doorways and Edwardian rooms – all cast a spell of artistry, ambiance, tantalizing culinary excellence, and superb attentive service. The Mansion’s Wedding Planning experts can completely customize a bride’s wedding ceremony, dinner & reception to her exact specifications. Pub 1910, on the Mansion’s 3rd floor, provides after-wedding entertainment into the wee hours of the morning.
* Minimum of 125 guests, $150 per person
