Christmas Wedding Reception
Our family and friends had the pleasure of celebrating my daughter's recent marriage (12/28/2019) with a "Wonder-filled" reception at the LaGalleria! Her engagement was a short one... just six months, and at times I may have got a little "unhinged." lol Cherie has a calming way of letting you know that "every little thing's gonna be alright!" Her professionalism and communication skills are extraordinary! The venue, itself, is absolutely charming! The combination of brick arches and hardwood offer a rustic, yet contempory environment . It was EXACTLY what we were looking for! Once we found the LaGalleria, there was no reason to look any further. The decor compliments the current season and literally leaves only personal touches that the bridal couple may choose to add. We found the menu options almost difficult to choose from. So many!! Our family style, "table share" dinner was absolutely delicious and gave a "WOW" factor for our guests, as most were accustomed to buffet or sit down dinners. Thank you LaGalleria for a Joyfull Christmas wedding reception! Just be advised, I do have three more daughters........ :o)Sent on 12/30/2019

A dream come true!
Our wedding was December 21st 2019, and it was absolutely wonderful! We looked at a couple different venues around Buffalo, but La Galleria stole our hearts the minute we walked in. From the warm welcome from the owner Cherie, to the stunning inside - we instantly fell in love with La Galleria. We wanted a Christmas themed wedding and we definitely got what we wanted. Cherie was very accommodating to us and our requests throughout the entire planning process. La galleria provided us with some decor, they gave outstanding service day of, and everything went so smooth. Our guests talked about how great the food was, and how nice and responsive the bartenders and servers were. Our wedding is still being talked about even a month later. I would recommend this place to anyone and everyone. We could not have had a more perfect wedding day at La Galleria.Sent on 01/15/2020

Best day! 12/7/19
La Galleria is a beautiful venue! Cherie was so helpful, kind, professional and all around awesome from the first day we met. She was quick to return phone calls/emails and let us stop by to review details/see the venue. Cherie also helped us do a processional walk through two days before the wedding to help calm some nerves. On the wedding day we were able to show up early and use the venue and outside grounds for pictures. Everything was decorated for Christmas and was just what we wanted. The whole wedding day ran smoothly and was stress free. The food was amazing, wait staff friendly and helpful. Everyone had so much fun and only great things to say.Sent on 01/02/2020
