(NEWSER) – The way you don't expect a wedding reception to be described: "I'm telling you, there was blood everywhere. There was holes punched in the walls." But that's exactly what transpired at a Saturday reception outside Buffalo, NY, according to an unidentified worker at the Orchard Park Country Club.
The Buffalo News reports that seven police agencies were called to the scene after a massive fight broke out just after 11pm, as the reception ended and guests were readying to go home. "Things were said that can never be taken back," says one witness; the paper reports that family members were yelling of their hatred for each other.
The worker says about 200 people attended the reception, and WIVB reports that an arriving officer saw at least 100 people fighting. The bride and groom reportedly weren't among them: She was taken to a back patio, while her new husband stayed inside and attempted to get his guests to exit.
