Amazing and unique

This was the coolest venue for our wedding. Once we toured The Bank, we knew this was the only place we wanted to have our reception. Todd is so detailed and really takes pride in his venue. The rooms beneath the Bank are awesome and our wedding party spent the night. Such a unique and lovely venue.

An Absolute Dream

I could not recommend the bank in East Aurora and Todd enough. I had not originally planned to stay at the bank but the day before my wedding I found out that another venue had double booked my room and I was left without a space for my bridal party and I go get ready. On 10 mins notice Todd not only had a beautiful room for me to stay in but the MOST BEAUTIFUL BRIDAL SUITE I have ever seen. Todd turned a bride’s worst nightmare into the most perfect day. There are so many photo opportunities at the bank, the space is exquisite and you will not meet a nicer and more accommodating person than Todd!!! I am anxiously waiting my photographer photos from this space! Highly highly recommend! Do not hesitate booking this venue!!!

Absolutely Amazing!!!!

We cannot say enough how great our experience was working with Todd and having our wedding reception at The Bank! We choose the venue when it was in the beginning stages of being renovated, Todd had explained to us his vision and we were sold! This venue is absolutely beautiful and so unique, Todd has only gone above and beyond what he originally told us about. Every nook and cranny of this place has a story to tell and our guests absolutely loved it!!! We rented the whole venue including "Beneath the Bank" for our whole wedding party to have a place to stay the night which is soooooo nice!! Everyone was able to party as much as they wanted and we didn't have to worry about Ubers or anything!!! (HUGE PERK!) Plus we were able to go about the town and have a good time as well - no open container law in East Aurora was great so we had a late night bar crawl to boot for the guests that weren't ready to go home because everyone was having such a great time!!! The rooms all being based on bank robbers are so great!! My wedding party was super excited about it - we had some guests walking down into the lounge area to take some fun photos as well!!! So we didn't have to rent any "lounge" area furniture like a lot of people are doing these days which is so expensive - it is already set up and a great relaxing area for people to take some great photos!!!! We utilized the stunning courtyard area for a relaxing outdoor area and filled the patio with outdoor games - they were a huge hit!!!! Todd had brought down his gorgeous orange Pierce Arrow for us to use for photos and we got some amazing ones that I will share! He even went and brought his adorable BMW Isetta which was so great for some fun photos!!

I could go on and on and on about this venue and I will to anyone that asks me! The best part was our experience with Todd - I have heard some really scary stories about people planning weddings during the pandemic but Todd is the reason I wasn't the bride pulling my hair out!!!! He was absolutely amazing, and did everything he could to accommodate us and work with us during these crazy times!!!

I for sure recommend this venue!!! Believe me you don't have to look anywhere else this is the best place and the best people to work with!!!!!
