    Best Venue In WNY

    I simply can't explain how amazing everyone at Hayloft was for our wedding! We had our wedding on the 4th of July, it was their boutique wedding package. We wanted something smaller and for just an afternoon and this option was ideal. So many things were included, which made the planning way less stressful. It was the best decision we made! Right from the start Jeni and her entire staff (shoutout to Krissy, Alyssa and Sandy) were phenomenal. They were on top of everything, kind, passionate, so organized and so helpful to ensure we had the best day possible and that it was exactly the way we wanted it to be. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and the day of was perfect. I truly believe our wedding day would not have gone as perfectly without Jeni and Krissy being there and running the ship. We did not have to stress or worry about anything! They did it all and with genuine excitement that it was our wedding day too. We are forever grateful for the easy planning process, the perfect day and ALL their help to make this happen. If you are thinking of booking Hayloft for a boutique wedding or a full wedding, book it! It will be the best and easiest decision you make! Thank you so much for everything, we are forever grateful!

    Classy and Confident

    Jeni and staff helped to coordinate a perfect wedding for our daughter. They never lacked a smile or enthusiastic comment. Last minute changes were dealt with a professional and creative attitude. The grounds and buildings are superb; add in the staff and our event was extraordinary.

    Thank you so much for your kind words. We had a wonderful time helping plan your daughter's wedding. Our staff (Sandy, Alyssa, Krissy, Cherrie and Derek) worked tirelessly to make your special day stress free and fun. Jason had a fun time driving all of the guests around our property on our haywagon too!

    Absolutely amazing

    We booked the hayloft venue a couple of weeks before Covid took off. Throughout the entire process, the decision making, the uncertainty of everything, Everyone at the hayloft made everything so effortless! They are not only THE best dream team, but they are a dream to work with! We were planning our wedding from Georgia, and Jeni always made sure to make the time and effort for as many zoom calls as we wanted and needed to make sure our day was all we imagined. They care about your wedding as though it is their own. They are so invested in making sure every single thing is addressed and taken care of! The amount of care, effort, and detail they put into everything is astounding. We actually couldn’t be happier with Jeni, Alyssa, and Krissy. They honestly feel like family to us now. Jeni saved me so many times I lost count! She’s an outright miracle worker! Alyssa was running in circles making sure everything was in order with all the booked events we had scheduled and caterers, and Krissy put up with me tweaking and changing little things here and there. Ah, I really can’t say enough about them! The stress of wedding planning was not near as stressful since I had these wonderful ladies on my team.

    HayLoft in the Grove's reply:

    Tracy, we thank you so much for taking the time to leave such a thoughtful review. Like many other businesses, COVID brought on many challenges and uncertainty that we had to overcome after being shut down for some time. Our primary objective was to consistently update each couple once we heard new news that would affect how the wedding day would unfold. We are very grateful to have such understanding couples that know we are working our hardest to make sure that their day is filled with lots of love and happiness. What is special about the HayLoft team is that we have a group of different personalities and expertise. Each team member has their own qualities that contribute to the success of HayLoft.
    Our favorite part of planning your day was picking the pampas grass from our fields and using them as décor for your wedding. It looked beautiful and we loved that we could help match your style even more. We also loved that you had alpacas & puppies during cocktail hour. The rescue centers were very happy to bring the puppies to be played with. We hope to see you two again as you are a part of our HayLoft family! Would love to plan an anniversary party for you one day!!
