Pearl @ The Webb Wedding Reception First Dance Bride Groom Buffalo NY WNY Top 10 Venue

Brick walls lined with arches, exposed ductwork, and high tin ceilings give this downtown Buffalo venue an old industrial feel. Don't let it's tough exterior fool you though, you can pretty this place up easily with some florals and greenery. It's the perfect mix of rust belt Buffalo and elegant wedding venue. Pearl Street Grill & Brewery next door has a very similar style as well.
