On Saturday, July 9, the freshly renovated Engineers Country Club hosted the first wedding in its renovated new building. During the months of planning that went into the wedding, Engineers completed the renovation of its clubhouse and ballroom. Alongside the tireless renovation process, Engineers provided a team that worked tirelessly to produce an unforgettable day for the bride and groom, their families, and their guests. After all, they were the first people to have the opportunity to inhabit and bring life to the space. With an enormous dance floor, the guests danced the night away. The attentive staff and excellent dining options rounded out the evening, treating every guest to an outstanding experience.
The wedding ceremony and celebration were both hosted on the club grounds, with the service taking place outdoors on the beautiful Engineers golf course before guests headed inside for the party. Fortunately, the weather held up to amplify the superb views and idyllic atmosphere that a wedding suggests.
The bride was Bari Saffron, daughter of Jacki and Cliff Saffron, and the groom was Lex Prince, son of Lorri and Jack Prince. The two met at Syracuse University. Saffron is a teacher and Prince works at Balzona. The bride’s father, Cliff Saffron, is the president of the Engineers Country Club and is also a member of the Roslyn School Board. Saffron was delighted to reveal the expanded ballroom and clubhouse features to the more than 250 guests.
As the renovation has recently completed, Engineers Country Club has entered a busy season of outings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, and other events. Now in its 100th year, Engineers remains one of the more sought after wedding and event locales on Long Island.
