    Relieved & Ecstatic

    The Tonawanda Castle is truly an all in one stop, on our approaching big day. With a detailed tour of every square inch, along with a sit down discussion of budget and options available, we ended up booking the same day!

    Dream Location

    If you are in the Buffalo, NY area and are looking for a venue I HIGHLY suggest the Tonawanda Castle. It is a beautiful, historical building. We had our ceremony and reception there and continue to get compliments about it. It is spacious and there is a lot of room to relax as well. They do their own catering and the food is AMAZING. Kelli, our wedding coordinator was a savior and so experienced.
