    Food and staff are AMAZING

    We worked with Teena and Rich and I cannot day enough good things about them. Firstly, the food was amazing. Very accommodating to food allergies!!! You cannot beat the quality of the food! Teena is amazing. Always willing to answer any questions and suggest things! The decor was breath taking. We used the castle for both ceremony and reception and it was beautiful.

    My daughter and now son-in-law chose Tonawanda Castle for their wedding ceremony and reception. WOW! Amazing venue! I can't thank everyone at the Tonawanda Castle enough, especially Lindsey and Teena. As the mother of the bride and organizer of the wedding, they worked with me and my family through it all. Weddings are a lot of work and stress, but the Castle took care of everything, down to the smallest detail. I literately dropped off the center pieces and decorations for the reception and they set everything up perfectly. They allowed me to hang a garland from their archway in the ceremony room without a problem. They offered to put it up for me,but I'm a little O.C.D. with stuff and wanted to do it. Areas were clean. Food was epic! All the guests commented on the freshness and originality of the Hors d'œuvres. The cocktails and drinks were NOT watered down at all. I have been to other weddings where it tasted like they watered the liquor down. Not at the castle. Guests commented on the great drinks the bar tenders were serving. I received nothing but compliments from the wedding guests about the service, food and uniqueness of the Tonawanda Castle. The staff at the castle worked with the DJ and photographer to keep the timeline moving flawlessly. My daughter and son-in-law did not do a dry run rehearsal the day before the wedding, so it was chaotic before everyone walked down the aisle UNTIL Teena organized everyone and got the job done without a problem. So grateful for Teena. The staff at the Castle treated us as if we were family, went over and beyond what would ever be expected at a venue. They made the night magical. Even lite the sparklers at end of the night
    Wedding guests came from LA, Florida, NYC, Washington DC, PA and other parts of NY and Canada. They all said it was worth the trip to see such a beautiful wedding in such a beautiful setting.
    THANK YOU to everyone at Tonawanda Castle.
    You made my daughters special day perfect!
    Shannon Schultz
