The Avanti Mansion is by far the most luxurious of any venue in this area. We wanted something better than the rest. A place that stood out and made a statement. We found it the second we walked in the Amore Ballroom. It is modern, stylish and glamorous. This place had everything we wanted in a venue, from the Library- which we used for our cocktail hour, two beautifully decorated suites and a grand ballroom for the main event. Even the bar was impressive, it's huge. We opted to have the Avanti handle our wedding planning as well. Another great perk, it's not just a venue, it's a full service wedding and event planning business. We wanted to enjoy our engagement and not get caught up in the stress of planning. Avanti made that possible. They had great ideas and helped us create exactly what we wanted. In the end it was the most memorable, exciting and enjoyable day of our lives. We ended our wedding with no regrets or complaints. It was simply the best day ever thanks to Avanti and their staff.
We were married at the Avanti Mansion in the garden behind the Amore ballroom with our reception being held in the Amore ballroom on July 30th 2011. Our wedding was simply perfect! I had very high expectations and the Avanti Mansion exceeded them all. Planning was a breeze and they were always accommodating to all my wants and needs. I did use many of the services they offer including: the florist, the DJ (Kenny), the Pastor. My only outside vendors were the cake and the photographer. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful in the gardens and it was the perfect location for on site pictures. The ballroom looked absolutely fantastic! I truly can't get over how perfect our wedding was and how much fun we had. Some of the best money I spent was: paying for exclusive use (the entire building was ours for the night and our cocktail hour was in the library), paying to have our wedding coordinator (Cheryl) with us all night, paying to have the outside bar open, and paying to extend our wedding an extra hour. Our wedding guests are still raving about the venue, the food, and the awesome party we threw! It seriously was the best night of my life and I would highly recommend the Avanti Mansion to everyone I know.

Attended an outdoor wedding at this venue and it was breathtaking! gorgeous views and great staff.
Planning our wedding from out-of-state was something that weighed heavily on our minds when deciding on a venue for our ceremony and reception. From the first phone call to the last minute of the reception, we were blown away by the top notch quality of service that the Avanti Mansion provides. The staff members are professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and truly committed to making your event the most special day of your life. Angie, our coordinator was simply phenomenal. She went above and beyond to answer all of my questions and attend to details I never even thought of. The Avanti has options for every budget and the staff is very respectful and helpful with your resources. We received so many compliments on the whole day (venue, food, service), and felt grateful to the Avanti for taking such good care of our family and friends. This is a wedding venue must-see for brides who want to enjoy every minute of the planning experience! This is, without a doubt, a "total-package" venue.
Having my reception at Avanti made me feel so peaceful! My pictures are so amazing thanks to all of the décor at Avanti! All of the staff were so friendly and helpful, I never had to search for help. The food was amazing, full of flavor! The bridal suites were my favorite for my bridal party, we had so much fun! My whole night was perfect!
I honestly don't know where to begin! From the planning, all the way up until the very end of the night, the Avanti Mansion went above and beyond expectations! Angie, our wedding coordinator, was GREAT! She was always available to answer questions (and trust me, as a bride, i had a LOT!!!) She would always give me honest answers and help see and create our vision for the perfect fall themed wedding, and was so patient with me! The food was absolutely WONDERFUL!! They even had a food tasting event a few months before our big day, so we could taste and know exactly what we will be having. If your considering a wedding at the Avanti Mansion, i would advise you to go set up a walk through, of both sites, and check them out now! The only problem my husband and I had? Deciding which ceremony site to go with! They were both SO beautiful, but in the end, the amore ballroom totally stole our hearts! I do not regret getting married at the Avanti Mansion whatsoever, in fact, they made our wedding day a dream come true, I'm not one to feel like a "princess" ever, but on our wedding day, the way they treated us, and decorated everything, and EVERYTHING they did for us, I really felt like a princess for the day. They were wonderful!
We loved our wedding hosted at the Avanti Mansion! They made us feel like the most important people in the world and were at our side the whole time. Finding a location that could provide so much for us was a big plus since we live out of the area. They were extremely imformative and accommidating. The grounds and the mansion are so beautiful, we wanted to move in! Spending the last few hours with my girls before the ceremony in their beautiful bridal suite was so much fun and I felt like the luckiest girl around!
I couldn't have been happier with having my reception at Avanti Mansion! From the moment I walked in the Amore Ballroom, I was completely blown away. It was absolutely beautiful. With my family living across the country, I didn't have a lot of help planning it. The wedding planner that I was assigned to at Avanti Mansion helped me so much! She gave so much advice that was affordable to our budget. She was able to work with my hectic schedule and was able to meet with me when needed. She was absolutely wonderful! All of our guests were raving about the food at our reception. We had the dual entree dinner with the filet of beef and an apple walnut stuffed pork tenderloin which was mouth watering. They were also able to have a separate entree made for guests that were vegetarian or had a food allergy. At the end of the night we had a Panini station which was a huge hit! We also ordered Avanti Mansion's DJ, DJ Kenny who made our wedding so much fun! He flowed the night together so smoothly and everyone was dancing from beginning to end! We had so many compliments with how much fun our wedding was. Avanti Mansion made the whole wedding planning process from beginning to end so easy for me and our special night turned out to be exactly what we had wanted!
We had our wedding this past August at the Avanti Mansion in the Japanese garden and had our reception in the garden. The Avanti was very professional and I highly recommend working with Kelly. Even though the price was high and at the top of our planned budget with added costs throughout the planning process, everything turned out beautifully and the entire staff was very nice the day of our wedding. The only complaint I have is if you are having your wedding in the tent in the summer and it is a hot day like our wedding was-they do not provide fans to cool the guests- they only have heaters for cold days.
I start off by saying that the Avanti mansion is strict to their rules and in not knowing this when I booked my wedding I was a little bummed. They wouldn't let me do things such as hanging lights in my ceremony site, using take home cake boxes and allowing me on site to place my dress and such items the day of in the bridal suite before my crazy day started. I worked with Kelly, and she turned all my " no's" to a positive result. Though I was not allowed to use hanging lights unless battery operated, she let me " spice" up my ceremony site in other ways, she found a way for me to use my cake boxes, and though she couldn't change the rules about me dropping of my dress early that day, when I arrived she was already at work placing all my items exactly where I wanted them to be. I was all worried about the 2hr gap between my wedding and getting the reception done that in the end, I had no worries. All the no's didn't matter, my day was taken care of. I spent the 2hrs sitting with my girls laughing not stressing. Kelly is wonderful. I loved her she turned it all around for me.
We had an incredible experience with the Avanti. The staff and our coordinator, Colleen, did everything possible to make our day run smoothly. We felt we got a great value in the Avanti Mansion. The space is so beautiful and the staff is so professional that you can feel confident your day will run just as you wish! Our guests are still raving about the food and the staff was attentive to everyone's dietary needs. Thank's to the Avanti, we had a perfect day.
I loved having my wedding at the Avanti Mansion. They went out of their way for my husband and I, answering all of our questions and finalizing every last detail to make it perfect. When we arrived at the reception, I was blown away by how beautiful the ballroom looked, and the creative touches they added to our reception, including setting up an awesome candy buffet for us. Our guests are still raving about the food, and everyone was on the dance floor right until midnight because DJ Kenny made it an awesome party. Kelly was our wedding planner, and she did an amazing job from start to finish. I got the impression that this wasn't just her job, but that she really cared about our wedding, and I really felt like she bent over backwards to make it perfect. This was the most elegant and beautiful reception hall in the area, and I couldn't have been happier with how things turned out.
The Avanti was everything that I dreamed of for my wedding and the experience working with them was wonderful from the beginning to the end. We had exclusive use of the Amore building and used the outside area for our ceremony. The venue is gorgeous, the food is great and the staff were excellent... there's no question that the Avanti knows what they are doing when it comes to wedding's. My coordinator was Angie and she was very helpful... I emailed her almost every other day with another question and she always responded promptly. Our wedding day was flawless and we didn't have to worry about a thing so we were able to enjoy every minute of it. I couldn't be happier with how our wedding turned out.
My husband and I had so much fun during our reception at the Avanti Mansion! From the great food, amazing lighting, the BEST service, and the stunning décor, we could not have asked for a better venue. Our wedding consultant, Angie, was so kind, thoughtful, responsive, and just overall a pleasure to work with. The royal blue lighting looked absolutely gorgeous with the ballroom's gold décor and the staircase was so much fun to walk down to as we were announced. In addition, the bridal suite made me feel like Cinderella with its light blue décor and window to peak at the crowd. And of course, my favorite part was that we had an enormous dance floor even with 273 people in total! What made the wedding was there was not a bad seat and everyone could be together in the gigantic party/ballroom. We are so grateful to have picked Avanti Mansion for our venue!
We loved the Avanti! We spent a long time looking at potential reception venues, but the Amore Ballroom took our breath away! We worked with Angie on all of the details and she was great!! She was extremely welcoming, professional, kind, and worked very hard to try to accommodate any special requests. I always looked forward to meetings with her! On the day of the wedding, the food was delicious, the staff was professional and efficient, and the whole room looked amazing. We had a wonderful day! All of our guests commented on the beautiful reception space and how great the food was! We would HIGHLY recommend the Avanti Mansion!
My day was perfect, from the moment I arrived, until the minute I left a married woman. Angie was wonderful as my planner, answered all of my questions quickly and gave me suggestions for anything and everything. On the big day everything was perfect, I knew exactly when I needed to be dressed, when the groom had arrived, and when I needed to be downstairs. My attendant even helped bustle my dress!! I have gotten nothing but compliments on the beautiful Amore ballroom and the excellent food that we had chosen. The pictures are beautiful, there was not a bad place to take a picture. We even had our own waiters for food and drinks, just for the bridal party during the cocktail hour! Everything was perfect from top to bottom and I can't imagine my big day anywhere but the Avanti Mansion.
Everything was perfect! I loved being able to Have our ceremony and then start cocktail hour right under the covered patio. There flowers were in full bloom and looked gorgeous in our pictures. The Amore ballroom was so beautiful, especially with the built in uplighting! I did a dual plated sit down dinner and the guests were raving about it. The Avanti Mansion was a little more expensive than the other venues we looked at, but i truely believe you get what you pay for. The service and experience were exceptional! Angie (my wedding consultant) was able to answer my many questions and numerous phone calls very promptly. My best friend loved it so much, she is now having her wedding there this March! I cant wait to go back there now and enjoy her wedding as a guest!
My husband and I had the most perfect wedding! We wouldn't have changed a thing. Angie (our wedding planner) was phenomenal. From day 1 when we booked she was responsive and helped us through the whole process. Everyone raved about the food and the service was terrific. The only negative my husband had was he didn't get any cheesecake! We were busy when the display was set up and he missed it. It's been 6 months and he still talks about it because when he tried it at the tasting it was the best cheesecake he had ever had!
The Avanti Mansion was our first and last choice when it came to a wedding venue. Kelly our wedding planner made everything so easy and enjoyable we were both able to actually enjoy our special day as opposed to stressing out over every detail. They took care of us and made us feel special on our day, the food and music were exceptional. After almost a month everyone of our guests are still raving about our wedding; We couldn't be happier with our choice !
Booking the Avanti Mansion was the best decision we made! The site itself is one of the most beautiful places for a wedding in Buffalo. The food, well our guests still are talking about it. Our wedding event coordinator, made sure from beginning till end, that our night went perfectly. Thank you Avanti for the most amazing day!!! - Frankie & David
