Celebrating your love at Gurney’s couldn’t be any more picturesque. The resort offers a variety of unforgettable ceremony locations for intimate and larger affairs. Sunset ceremonies on the beach are breathtaking, with private, upscale indoor and outdoor locations for receptions. Not to mention, the food here is to die for. Gurney’s is proud to offer world-class catering and a long list of talented chefs, bartenders, and waitstaff.

The resort is quietly nestled a few hours outside New York City. It’s about an hour from Long Island MacArthur Airport and 2 hours from either Laguardia International Airport or John F.

The Reform Club – Amagansett, New York

Pristine, welcoming, and bright, The Reform Club is a venue unlike any other in the Hamptons. Located in Amagansett, it’s a space amongst towering maple and evergreen trees where intimate celebrations of love can flourish and sway with the salty Atlantic breeze. 

Imagine slow dancing with the love of your life amidst green arches, rose walls, and twinkling lights. The retreat’s lush green courtyard, The Park, is large enough to fit a tent, along with a ceremony seating and cocktail area for up to 200 guests. The Sunken Garden is a secondary location, more suited for intimate celebrations or cocktail hours. The intricately-laid brick terrace is surrounded by fresh lavender and greenery — making it a quiet and romantic spot to say I Do.

The Reform Club embraces stillness and privacy, only offering 7 suites, 3 cottages, and 1 luxurious 4-bedroom home. This retreat is also just 2 hours from either Laguardia International Airport or John F. Kennedy International Airport and about an hour from Long Island MacArthur Airport. It’s a short, relaxing bike ride from some of Amagansett’s best boutique shopping, fine dining, and beautiful Indian Wells Beach. While you and your partner are relaxing, you can enjoy the Inn’s entertainment area, The Common Room. Later on, you can laugh and reminisce over a private dinner at The Tea House or wander through the fruit trees of The Orchard with cocktails.

Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club – Bridgehampton, New York

A private tennis and beach club built for relaxation and celebration. Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club is ideal for timeless beach weddings accompanied by breathtaking views, delicious cocktails, and sophisticated catering cuisine. 

Your debonair, dreamy beach wedding is just waiting to be brought to life at Bridgehampton. The club is huddled against access to a 1200-foot private beach. It’s idyllically laden with fluffy white sand and wispy sea grass. A Sunset beach ceremony is like a fairytale here, secluded and romantic. With a 180-degree ocean-front view, the ballroom is the perfect celebratory space for an elegant yet electrified reception. It’s also large enough to host up to 240 guests.

The beauty of Bridgehampton Tennis & Surf Club is located near Mecox Beach, just under a two-hour drive from either Laguardia International Airport or John F. Kennedy International Airport, and less than an hour from Long Island MacArthur Airport. The town of Bridgehampton is quiet and quaint, home to the town of The Hampton Classic and a refined local winery.

While the Hamptons are home to some gorgeous, upscale wedding venues, it’s also home to some impressive and one-of-a-kind intimate spaces for elopements. Here are some of the best elopement wedding venues in the Hamptons.

Villa Viktoria – Montauk, New York

Villa Viktoria is a beautiful example of a home perfect for a private and luxurious elopement. Located within Montauk Village in the Hamptons, this fully furnished, spacious 5-bedroom home sits on .4 acres, nestled against the renowned Montauk Downs Golf Club.

While it’s large enough to host close friends and family during your elopement, it’s also a great getaway for couples looking to hold a private ceremony as a party of two. 

The living room’s cozy fireplace and plush pillow top couch are perfect for late-night cuddles the night before your big day. Overhanging trees, limbs, and branches shade the lush and green private backyard.

Kennedy International Airport. This home is also just 15 minutes from East Hampton Airport.
