Ceremony & Reception Space
Lake Affect Studios was the one place where I knew I HAD to get married the moment I walked in. We had a birthday party 2 years prior and the moment I saw the area then, I was in love. The low lighting, the loft vibe, and the intimacy of the venue is something I was really in love with. Guests seemed to love it as well.Sent on 01/05/2019
Working with Amanda was such a positive experience. She was so helpful and answered each one of my 1,000,001 questions with such patience and understanding. I really enjoyed working with her and recommend other couples to do so if they are looking for a personal AND professional experience.
Amanda and Danny have GREAT vendors that they recommend. They both have great taste and will NOT steer you wrong.
I cannot wait to find another excuse to hold other events there in the future!

Wedding reception was fantastic!!
From the father of the bride... my daughter recently had her reception at Lake Affect Studios. Many of the guests thought the venue was really cool and different. Loved the bar. Everyone had a great time. Many said it was the best wedding reception they have ever been to. And most importantly... the bride was happy!! Amanda was very flexible regarding all the planning - thanks Amanda!Sent on 11/11/2018

I am an event planner/designer and my clients recently hosted their wedding reception at Lake Affect Studios! From the beginning, Amanda was very helpful and accommodating. She was able to provide her knowledge of the space to guide us in putting together the floor plans and show us how to use the space effectively. Since my firm is based in Buffalo, NY, she was the "boots on the ground" throughout the process, which was incredibly valuable to my team and the couple. She also provided us with excellent vendor recommendations! Thanks so much Amanda for making M+M's wedding day so seamless!Sent on 10/10/2018
