Hear It From Our Guests!
We can't begin to express how happy we were to have held our daughter's rehearsal dinner and wedding reception at St. Bonaventure University. The staff was professional, friendly, and amazing! We utilized both the Marchiori Pavilion and the William C. Foster Memorial Courtyard over the 2 day event and couldn't have been happier. Both nights the food was delicious and the venues were stunning. We would book St. Bonaventure for any event in a heart beat.
