Trumpets at the Gate Reviews

Review: If you’re looking for a venue for a small waterfront wedding, this is as ideal as you’re going to find. It’s located on a kind of peninsula, so there is water on every side pretty much, which is very lovely, and makes you feel like you’ve kind of gotten away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. We had our event in the late afternoon/evening, and the venue looked beautiful at dusk. I imagine it’d be lovely at any time of day, probably very nice in the morning too, what with the sunrise over the ocean. They can handle roughly 100 people here, slightly more or less. We barely got in over their minimum of 60 people. It’s entirely the opposite of the giant venues that are so popular here for huge weddings with like a thousand people. Instead of a big, echoing, impersonal hall, you have this quaint, charming little house that just defines elegance and intimate, personal comfort and luxury. Check out the back deck area when you visit. That’s where they do the cocktail hour. You’re right next to the water there, and you can watch the boats passing below. There are some lovely flowers growing up against the building back there and it smells incredible. Indoors, you still get the beautiful view, thanks to wide windows overlooking the bay on three walls. Very nice. We worked with several different people here. It’s family owned and very local, which was something we really liked. I remember when I was working with my sister to plan her wedding, and she had to deal with dozens of different people at one of those huge wedding places I was mentioning earlier. It was so chaotic and crazy. We just dealt with a handful of people here and got to know them well. It made it all a lot less confusing and much easier. We mostly worked with Lance, who is one of the owners. Lori as well, the maitre d’, was wonderful, especially the day of. They did all their final checks before the wedding started to make sure that everything was in place exactly as we’d planned. If you’ve been to a lot of weddings, I’m sure you’ve quickly figured out that most wedding food is overpriced mediocre cuisine which tries and fails to pass off as gourmet. That is not the experience you will have here! The food was genuinely as delicious as you’d hope at the price tag, as good as the best gourmet we’ve had anywhere in this area. If you don’t know this, they do run a restaurant, Trumpets on the Bay. It’s a delightful spot to eat—again, the same magnificent food, and a lovely view of the bay. We’ll probably be eating there regularly now. They know us, and it is a way to remember our special day—maybe on anniversaries! Both the cocktail hour and the dinner were delicious. For dinner, you’re allowed to let them handle the cake or bring one in from outside. For our part we decided to trust them with dessert, because why wouldn’t we? They were so amazing with everything else. The cake was lovely and tasted wonderful. It was not just your standard wedding cake! It was again a delicious gourmet dessert recipe, complete with filling made of fresh fruit. Very yummy! Trumpets was everything we were looking for. There is a reason we only had around 60 people in our wedding party, and we were hard-pressed even to manage that. We wanted our wedding to be a personal, intimate event with the people we care about the most. The venue should match that, and Trumpets did. It was a personal experience in every way—like holding the party in our own house, but much better because we didn’t have to take care of the arrangements, and the setting was so much better with the views of the bay. If small and private is your style, this is your place.

Review: We had a gathering here that was just amazing. They really know how to put on an elegant affair here! Everything they brought out to eat was gourmet, just impeccably good. It is a very pretty venue too, and the location is nice. You really feel like you’re secluded here. There’s only one event at a time, so all the focus is on you and your guests.

Review: When we started planning our wedding, we knew that we wanted something in the Hamptons. The other venues we looked at were just too big, and we wanted to keep things small, simple. This turned out to be the perfect venue--everything we could have wanted and more. Afterward we agreed neither of us could have imagined a wedding this beautiful, this perfect.

Review: We had a smaller wedding; most of the venues we looked at originally were for huge wedding parties. We didn't want our event to feel lost and out of place, or to have other parties going on at the same time. We found this place, which turned out to be perfect for our small party. It was very small, the staff was very personable, and the location was lovely. Lance worked with us on every detail to make sure everything was perfect!
