We just had our wedding at the Castle last night and oh my goodness it was amazing. We fell in love with the Castle on our first visit and throughout the whole process it was so stress free. The staff work so well together from Lindsay getting us started well the initial logistics, to Rich taking our menu and preparing the most amazing meal that everyone raved about, to Teena who not only helped us plan the details of the day, but also did what seemed like every job there was to do one point or another and really made sure the evening was perfect, we could not have asked for a better experience. I also have to mention the rest of the staff that worked the wedding, they were absolutely amazing, especially Kelli who was taking care of us during the reception. If you are thinking of having a wedding or any event here, do it. It’s a gorgeous space, the staff is incredible and the food is amazing. They will do everything in their power to make sure you have an excellent experience and your event goes off without a hitch.

We chose the Tonawanda Castle for catering after looking at reviews, and were not disappointed with our choice. Rich was very flexible with the menu, and he created some really interesting and delicious stations for our guests at the Botanical Gardens. The food was amazing! Teena was our coordinator for catering, and she was always prompt and professional with her replies - she made it a stress-free evening!
