Say I Do at The Carltun

The Carltun / (516) 542-0700

No matter what your vision is for your big day, we can guarantee you that our staff will deliver. The elegant setting of our ballroom will provide the perfect backdrop to allow your party to shine for years to come.

Check out what some of our previous couples have said about their special day with us.

"Chef Rodrigo spent 2 hours with me discussing each hors d'oeuvre, small plate and station. He literally brewed his own lavender simple syrup, (using lavender from his garden), for use in our signature drink. Three days before my wedding, my Carltun wedding coordinator, Stefan and Rodrigo sensed I was not 100% happy with the layout of the wedding - I wanted more of a lounge feel (high tops, couches, etc). They proposed bringing the Carltun patio furniture, (high tops, love seats, low tables) inside, revamped the entire layout, inlcuding letting me use an additonal room and even callen the linen store I was using to make sure there would be no probelm with changing my order. They were both a pleasure to work with. Needless to say the food wa great, everything was executed perfectly and the staff was professional. If I could give them six stars I would." -Happy Couple

"Just a quick note to say THANK YOU for helping to coordinate our magical, amazing wedding. It was everything we could've hoped for. Out only complain was that our night had to end!! Our guests had a wonderful time, raved about the food, and loved the venue. The after party was just out of this world, we could not have enjoyed ourselves more. We look forward to visiting The Carltun for many anniversaries to come." -Hally & Chris

"We are newly back from our honeymoon and still cannot get over the fact that we had the wedding of our dreams. We are slowly going through all of the photos and videos that our friends have sent us and everything looks just as spectacular as it was that day. You & your staff are top-notch from Christian to Maryann and especially Rodrigo - you customized the day and made it very special for us. We know how crazy it got between cocktail hour and the main party and we appreciate everything that was done to continue the night. Several people told us on that day, as well as still now (almost 3 weeks later,) that it was the best and most beautiful wedding they have ever attended. We have you to thank for this. Thank you again for everything." -Patrick & Caroline

If you're ready to begin planning your big day, give us a call today. We would be more than happy to help make the wedding of your dreams a reality! We can be reached by calling 516-542-0700 ext.1. For additional information, visit
