I'm not sure how to even put into words how happy we were with Asbury Hall. From the very first meeting with Austin, we knew this venue was amazing and knew we were in good hands with Austin. He was very professional, organized and helped us with each step along the way. He is prompt with a return of an email usually within minutes!!! Organizing a wedding can be stressful but with Austin's organization this was an easy and enjoyable process.Sent on 06/16/2013
As for the actual wedding day.... it was beyond perfect. Austin was present all day to make sure that everything was 100% smooth. The servers were amazing and took special care of each guest. Little details such as giving us a plate of appetizers as they could tell we were so busy mingling that we hadn't had a chance to enjoy them. The bartenders were great... they memorized just about all of the bridal party and parents drinks so that as soon as they approached the bar, the drink was poured and ready. There was never a line for the bar and it was always fully stocked! Our lead server, Giesla was awesome and was always two steps ahead.
The actual venue was beyond beautiful! Everything was clean, organized and just how we had planned! The photos from this site are stunning!
Overall, our day was beyond perfect and I attribute this to Austin and the excellent crew at Asbury! Most of our guests have called this wedding "the best wedding ever" and I attribute this to the everyone at Asbury. I would recommend this place 100%! Austin completely took the stress out of all the planning. The staff made our day perfect and so many small touches along the way that I don't have enough space to write them all. I would recommend this place 100%. Now I'm hoping someone in my family will get engaged so we can go back!!!

The perfect venue
I could not have imagined my wedding anywhere else. Asbury Hall was perfect in every way and the staff was amazing. My husband and I moved to Rhode Island after we were engaged so we were planning the majority of our Buffalo wedding from out of town. Austin was amazing, he is so responsive and tentative to all of our questions and concerns we had along the way. Him and his staff at Exquisite Catering made the day run so flawlessly. They know exactly what they are doing and it shows. Every staff member we interacted with was so courteous and kind, and genuinely happy to be there for our day. The food was AMAZING! The staff gave the wedding party their food right away so that my husband and I could make our rounds while our guests ate. SO happy we got to eat because everything was so delicious and all of our guests would agree. I cannot say enough of how perfect and smooth our day went and the same with all of the planning that lead up to it. Austin volunteered to drive us to our hotel that night because we figured we could walk the half block after the reception, but failed to realize how much stuff we would be carrying with us! So so thankful for that offer! Asbury Hall was an amazing venue and I cannot rave enough about the staff and Austin. They truly made our day perfect and I am forever grateful for everything and everyone there!!Sent on 05/20/2019
