The Elegance Ballroom completely exceeded expectations. Rachel Slavin was wonderful from beginning to end and sincerely cared about making our wedding the best day. All of the catering staff was very attentive throughout our wedding and made sure our drinks were full the entire time. Rachel was so detail oriented and asked questions we didn't even realize were important. The wedding package she put together with outside vendors took a lot of stress away from the wedding experience since they were really great to work with. During the wedding, our bridal attendant: Mary  Anderle was such an asset to have alongside us. Anything we needed, Mary got it done immediately. Thank you again to everyone at the Elegance Ballroom for making our wedding day so special!!

Everything was wonderful. The hotel was very accommodating in helping us, especially after having to reschedule our wedding twice, which I truly appreciated. Rachel Slavin and the staff were very friendly and professional. They were always checking in with us to make sure everything was ok. The venue was beautiful. We had a smaller wedding and thought the space would have looked too empty but the way everything was set up made it look really wonderful. The guests raved about the food. The cocktail hour food was especially impressive, some of our guests thought it was the dinner! We ordered the chicken marsala and the flank steak and both were very good. All of our guests made a point to tell us how good the food was, I was very pleased and impressed with how everything turned out and all of our guests had a wonderful time. It couldn't have gone better.

The catering staff was wonderful. The food was great for the breakfast and lunch, and the staff very helpful. But where they shined was the two special receptions. The staff went above and beyond to make the receptions better than we expected. The first night, we did a beer tasting with flight boards and local craft brews, sources by the hotel. The service was outstanding and people also loved the pretzel bites and pizza. The outdoor firepit was the perfect location. Our second reception was a wine tasting and small tasting glasses with the winery logo were brought in just for the event. The food pairings were perfect -- especially the bacon wrapped scallops! We appreciated the hotel's willingness to bring a "taste of long Island" to us as leaving the hotel proved quite challenging with both Covid restrictions as well the wedding season. The client and sponsors were very happy. The elegance ballroom is very pretty and we used it as a classroom. There is a quite a lot of light in the space and the shades don't completely darken it, so we though daytime presentations might be a bit challenging. However, the huge screen and top-of-the line projector allowed the presentations to be viewed without a problem. We'd also highly recommend Mike Kouros and his staff at Bravo sound. We purchased the workshop video package for our hybrid event, and were blown away by the professionalism. Thanks again for helping us to offer a great event despite the many challenges of a hybrid meeting!

Wonderful efficient staff, beautiful room and outstanding food! The Chamber of Commerce most recently held the awards ceremony for Chamber Tank in the main ballroom and the staff and management went out of their way in creating a very special night for all the Riverhead High School students, faculty and their guests. The Residence Inn Long Island East End is an extremely valued and involved member of the chamber.

I can not say enough about our experience at the Elegance Ballroom! We had the most perfect day! Everyone was so helpful from planning to details to suggestions and making sure everything was perfect the day of. The ballroom was beautiful, the cocktail hour was wonderful, the food was amazing. I still have people telling me what a beautiful wedding it was and how delicious the food was. I was able to stay at the hotel the night before and got ready in the Diamond Suite which is absolutely beautiful. Also my husband and the guys got ready in the Den Suite which was perfect. The location is great, there are so many beautiful places near by to take pictures. So many great things about this venue, you wont be disappointed! Make sure you also check out the photographer who is partnered with the venue…. Fade To Black New York Inc… they were amazing!
