Wine Country Weddings
Thank you for thinking of JHI for your special event. Whether on or off premise, we look forward to creating an unforgettable experience for you and your guests. We’re proud of our long-standing reputation as one of the premier events companies in Long Island’s Wine Country.
ON PREMISE EVENTS
With the farms and vineyards as a backdrop, JHI is an ideal venue to host your wine country wedding, whether a lantern-lit reception for a hundred in the garden or a tent, or an elopement with dinner for two in the gazebo. We have many elegant and intimate spaces for a family reunion, a retreat, a baptism, a birthday party, a wedding, a rehearsal dinner or brunch the day after. We house the hosts and their lucky guests and can arrange more rooms at the association of Elegant Bed and Breakfasts. Our events team, winners of Dan’s Papers Best of the Best for Catering, will plan your wedding from start to finish, coordinating with the executive chef, florist and photographer.
Meet with our chef to design your special event. Locally grown artisan foods are the ingredients that shape our imaginative menus and elegant presentation. We strike the perfect balance between tradition and innovation, creating extraordinary results that endure time and trend. We urge you to make an appointment to tour the Inn or just dine in the restaurant to experience the food and service. In considering us, you can be assured that we will go out of our way to make your event memorable.
OFF PREMISE EVENTS
Eastern Long Island offers several locations to have your wine country wedding or party of your dreams. Many places offer vineyard settings, and there are also amazing country-side locations, resorts, and gardens. We love to evoke and transform a simple vineyard or waterside retreat, into an elegant reception.
Whether it be in your own back yard or at one of our amazing vineyard neighbors, our specialized event planning team is accustomed to providing you with the utmost expertise in executing your event. We will organize tent packages, rentals, photographers, musicians, and florists to make your event most memorable.

Kelsey Combe Photography Blog: Hayley & Steve
Hayley & Steve were married this past August at just about the coolest venue we’ve ever been to. Jedediah Hawkins Inn is a histroic house in Riverhead, NY– and it is just so beautiful. And awesome! (It has a speakeasy in the basement.) And, to date, it was the best experience we have ever had as vendors. The staff was so kind and helpful and happy– and overall it was so clearly the perfect place for Hayley & Steve to tie the knot. Hayley wore a stunning BHLDN dress and held a wildflower bouquet. You cannot miss their first-look, the special surprise at the end of the ceremony, their gorgeous and carefully crafted details, and I cannot even get started on how amazing the band was. You can find more about them here, elan artists. They threw an amazing party.
Hayley & Steve- we wish so much we could shoot your wedding every weekend. It was so wonderful to share in– and also, I would not say no to eating that amazing food every night of my life. Thank you so much for having us!
Just love these flowers. Can you tell?
And don’t you just love Hayley’s “something blue” tipped manicure?
Love me some mismatched bridesmaid shoes!

Shots at the end of the ceremony!? So cool!
Destination Spotlight: Jedediah Hawkins Inn--WELLWED HAMPTONS
Couples clamoring for a wedding that's off the beaten path need to look no further than the Jedediah Hawkins Inn in Jamesport. Though the upscale inn has only been in business since 2006, it has already established a tradition of excellence for its quirky charm and solicitous attention to detail.
Weddings at the inn can enjoy the eclectic range of possibilities it presents for couples who dread the thought of a cookie-cutter celebration. The inn's jewel box interior features a series of distinctive rooms, each furnished in a unique style. Outside, the lawn sweeps starkly to the horizon, creating breathtaking vistas, and the inn's stately architecture makes it a fitting backdrop for both elegant and relaxed merrymaking.
The accommodating staff dedicates itself to ensuring that your wedding celebration is everything you want it to be. The staff works with couples individually to concoct a wedding celebration that reflects particular interests and priorities, whether it's a formal reception with a full-service, sit-down dinner or a more casual, roaming reception that allows guests to wander freely through the inn and grounds. This inn is truly one-of-a-kind. Once you step onto the porch, taking in the expansive views around you and meeting the welcoming smiles of the staff, you'll feel right at home.

"Finding just the right venue became our biggest challenge and when we found Jedediah Hawkins Inn--an Inn that combined the best of old world Victorian Charm with the most modern luxuries and sensibilities (can you say woven leather ceilings!) -- we knew we had our venue.
The rest fell into place: ceremony in the gazebo out near the Inn's historic barn, cocktails in the original Speakeasy where they have Long Island Reisling on TAP!, and a five-course sit-down feast in the dining room complete with a gorgeous mantel prepared just to their liking."
