Our wedding was a dream!
I cannot say enough about Asbury Hall. Our wedding day was a dream from start to finish. The building itself is stunning and had all our guests impressed with it’s historic charm (most out of towners!), but the venue’s coordinator Austin was really the MVP of the entire affair. He was so patient with me and all of my questions and put me at ease. He knows weddings so well and I was so impressed with him and our set up. He kept steady communication going with us throughout our year and a half of planning. The catering was excellent and our servers and bartenders were amazing. Many of our guests contacted us the day after to tell us how much fun they said, and several said it was the best wedding they’d been to. My new husband and I HIGHLY recommend this venue!!!! Do not hesitate! Thank you Austin!Sent on 10/16/2019

From start to finish planning a wedding at Asbury Hall was the best decision we could have made!Sent on 10/08/2019
Austin (the coordinator) is AMAZING and with you every step of the way. Any questions or concerns you have he is available to address with you.
Austin and the staff are spectacular at making your vision come alive - from food to decor to logistics. No surprises, no confusion- straightforward and pleasant to work with.
The night of your wedding will go by so fast, but they will still be with you every step of the way to remind you of important items (ex. Dinner will be served in 15 minutes or dancing with your parent in 10). They pack up your items and have them ready to go for you by the next day.
Get married and celebrate here- you won’t regret it!!!

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
