About

Shea’s Seneca is a historic theater venue for couples planning their wedding in the greater Buffalo, New York area. This venue has been remodeled to shine in its original state of ornate beauty. Couples will discover vaulted and gilded ceilings inside and a traditional marquee on the historic building outside. To explore all that Shea’s Seneca has to offer, couples can find it conveniently located 17 minutes from the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

Facilities and Capacity
Couples can celebrate their wedding with up to 700 guests. This theater includes a banquet hall space with a modern appearance and up-to-date amenities for couples who want a cleaner look for their wedding reception. This space, called the Seneca Ballroom, features a bright white and silver color scheme. There are windows letting in natural light during the day and overhead lights — in addition to any uplighting used — to keep the party going into the night. Couples can also celebrate their wedding in the Shea Ballroom. This space features all of the old style and class found in the historic theater. There is a tiled floor in a large black-and-white checkered pattern. The two-story high ceilings are arced even higher, with traditional antique chandeliers hanging down to provide light. Throughout the room there are golden accents and mirrored embellishments. Couples with a feel for old-world sophistication and the glamour of the theater will feel right at ease in the Shea Ballroom.

Services Offered
Couples can use this venue to blend the traditional and contemporary, making it a great space for ceremonies and receptions, but also bridal showers, engagement parties, elopements, and rehearsal dinners. The venue welcomes couples and their guests for all of these events and more. There they will find all-inclusive packages, parking, valet, wifi, and other little luxuries. The all-inclusive packages feature services such as bar and catering, wedding cake, setup and cleanup, lighting and sound, and even an event planner. Couples can also choose to bring in outside vendors, and Shea’s Seneca offers liability insurance.
