    The Tonawanda Castle made our day a dream come true

    The Tonawanda Castle couldn't have been a better fit for us. From the day we toured the venue to day we picked up all of our items after the wedding, the staff could not have been any more helpful or supportive, The staff was incredible! Any question, no matter how many I had, was answered in a immediate fashion. Lindsay, Teena, Kelli and Rich make an amazing team as well as the entire staff. We had numerous guest reach out to us after our wedding to compliment us on the venue with the most wonderful comments about the staff. Our guests were impressed with the attentiveness of the wait staff and the quality of the entire meal and drinks. From the time our guests walked in the front door for our ceremony, they were welcomed with a drink, then enjoyed an amazing cocktail hour with great appetizers then were welcomed into the ballroom. The staff was so accommodating to our guests. Food was out of this world and the attention to detail the staff provided was outstanding. Our guests also complimented how "neat" it was to be able to explore all the rooms of The Castle, Not only did our guest have a fantastic dining experience (we received compliments such as "better meal they have ever had at a wedding") but a reception venue full of history. The Tonawanda Castle far exceeded our expectations (We have very high expectations by the way!)
    The Tonawanda Castle provided us the best back drop for all our wedding photographs and video as well. The building is so rich in history, architecture and has so many little details that really made all of our memories in pictures and video make you just say WOW! The Tonawanda Castle literally made our Fairy Tail come true! Thank you Lindsay, Teena, Rich, Kelli and the entire staff for the best day of our lives!
