John and I had an amazing wedding which I'm sure everyone feels that way about theirs. We truly wanted the "Experience Buffalo" so we had our wedding at the Historical Society, St. Louis church, and then our hotel was the renovated Hyatt downtown. People from in and out of town were really amazed at our city. We're glad we were able to do it and keep most of our vendors local. They really did a great job working together and making our day special.
I highly recommend this all inclusive. We had an amazing time relaxing and also doing some of the tours. Top tours would be Dunn's River Catamaran and the Dolphin Cove swim with the dolphins. Once in a lifetime experiences. And, if you can, totally upgrade to the butler.
Oliver's was amazing. We called them when the Statler closed and were nervous we couldn't find a place. Luckily the Historical Society was still available. They treated us like our day was as important to them as it was to us. It was very pricey, but totally worth it for what we got, which was a worry free and top notch wedding. The catering manager was working as hard as she could throughout the night to make sure everything went off without a hitch and everyone who attended could not stop raving about the food. Love them!
The cake was fantastic but they were somewhat difficult to deal with. They wanted to deliver the cake before noon and I guess hope the air conditioning would keep the butter cream together (it was a hot August day!). I don't know how it happened but the decorator ended up leaving their business after she took our order so I had to go back and confirm what we wanted and though the cake looked nice it wasn't exactly what we had planned. All of this came out two days before the wedding. Regardless, it did look nice and tasted unbelievable so I guess it was worth it.
Julie was so excited to do the flowers and had amazing ideas on how to make them unique and beautiful. And all for a VERY reasonable price. She was always upbeat and easy to deal with. I immediately liked her ideas and when I saw her quote I was sold. My flowers were beautiful and I felt truely me.
Tony was great. He really helped set up an exciting atmosphere and read the crowd to see what people liked to dance to. He also helped in planning the evening and coordinating events with the caterer which put our mind at ease.
They were excellent for my wedding dress, but when it came time to order my girl's dresses they mismeasured everyone! Every single dress was far too big and they refused to admit it was their fault. They said their system makes them order it that way. They also were very inattentive and though I know a wedding dress can be costly so it's important to be a good sales person to the bride, the bridal party also spends a lot of money and deserves good treatment. I recommend paying a little more somewhere else and getting it right the first time.
