De Seversky Mansion
Would you like your wedding to look and feel like something straight out of the Gatsby era? You can make it happen by scheduling your nuptials to take place at the historic NYIT de Seversky Mansion. The Long Island, NY mansion was first commissioned by businessman and philanthropist Alfred I. du Pont back in the 1910s and designed and built by architect Thomas Hastings. It cost more than $1 million to build, which was a lot of money back then, and served as du Pont’s residence until 1926 when he sold it to Frederick E. And Amy Phipps Guest, who kept it in their family until 1972 when it was purchased by the New York Institute of Technology. Today, it has turned into a popular wedding venue, and it’s an amazing place to have an engagement photographer or wedding photographer from Amanda-lee Seely Photography take photos.
Elegant Backgrounds for Wedding or Engagement Photography
The NYIT de Seversky Mansion features quite a few modern updates in it at this point. Nevertheless, it still maintains a lot of the rich character and charm that people have come to know and love over the years. The main ballroom, which was once a living room in the mansion, features wood-paneled walls and a gorgeous stone fireplace in it. The pub was once used as a breakfast room. What’s more, the terrace room in the mansion used to be a formal dining room space that was used during dinners with guests like Salvador Dali and Truman Capote.
