Rich's (and specifically Gail K. at Rich's) made our wedding everything we could have ever hoped for and more! We planned our Buffalo wedding from Texas and I don't think it would have been possible without Rich's, seriously. They are so experienced, organized, professional and competent that I knew I had nothing to worry about. Our two in-person meetings with Gail and multiple emails were enough to answer all of my (hopefully not too annoying) questions, even down to having spray deodorant in the amenity baskets. The planning with Rich's was a breeze and they provide you with worksheets to make sure that they have all the information from you that they need to make your day perfect. We were able to deliver all of the hand-painted signs my cousin did, the hand watercolored escort cards, homemade table numbers, memorial table stuff, map showing where everyone flew in from and my insane idea of hundreds of origami envelopes as a alternative guest book and they set it all up to perfection. What I'm trying to get across is that my wedding had a ton of details and Rich's was able to accommodate everything I asked.
The actual reception - WOW, all I can say is WOW. With my job I go to a lot of events and galas and I have never been so impressed with a venue. They brought my vision to life in a way I didn't think was even possible and made our night so incredibly fabulous for us and our guests that I am just overwhelmed with gratitude. We had guests fly in from literally around the world for our wedding and they were so impressed, I think it lived up to all their ideas of an "American Wedding" that they had from TV. Rich's was able to coordinate with our DJ and roll with last minute changes like me bringing a piece of cake to my cousin at the cake cutting and singing happy birthday, or my cousins from Slovak Republic organizing a special ballroom dance. I ran out of space for this review but I'll be posting more on FB. I LOVE THIS VENUE AND CANNOT RECOMMEND IT ENOUGH

An Incredible Experience
Our entire experience at Rich's was amazing. From the first time we met with them, they made us feel like we were their number one priority. Throughout planning the wedding, any question we had was answered promptly by staff. Steve was extremely helpful with everything; he is a wedding planning guru! Our guests commented throughout the night and in the days following the wedding about how attentive the staff were to them and how special everyone felt. We were truly treated like royalty and hope every bride and groom is as lucky as we were to feel this way on their wedding day. Not a day goes by where we don't think about that magical day and how Rich's took the fairy-tale we were envisioning and made it come to life.

My husband and I invited over 400 guests to our wedding and therefore were looking at many large venues in Buffalo. We were absolutely blown away by Rich's Atrium remodel! On top of the beautiful and spacious facility, the staff at Rich's made planning a 400 person wedding easy! They were extremely accommodating, professional, and organized. Steve G emailed us back at any time of the day or night with any questions we had. Our guests raved about the delicious food, attentive service, and beautiful space Rich's provided as well. One couple even decided to have their wedding there after attending ours! We would highly recommend Rich's!!!
