Beginning the Planning Process....

Planning an event as large as a wedding can be overwhelming....but the process also can be incredibly fun and satisfying. The first major decision is the venue. The venue really sets the stage for the event. If you are looking for a more environmentally friendly venue,  here's one to check out!

Port Washington, Long Island

So I know what you're thinking...."Golf courses have a substantial negative impact on the environment - think of all those fertilizers and insecticides used to keep the grass, oh so, green and not to mention the huge amount of water wasted!!!".

And you're completely right but Harbor Links is different. The facility has developed a Natural Resouce Management Plan which incorporates wildlife and habitat conservation, water quality monitoring and management, water conservation, pest management, etc. Plus, as a member of the Audubon Signature Program, the golf course is helping to preserve a little swath of green space to be used by resident and migratory birds. Cool, huh?

The menu options aren't organic or locally grown but the facility is capable of seating a large number of guests. The food is great and the event coordinator is even better.

...did I mention this is where Mr. HVG and I held our reception? Love, love, love this venue.

Check Harbor Links out and let me know what you think!

Happy Planning,
