Best wedding venue in Philly!
When we began our process of looking for a venue in and near Philly, we found that most places were similar in a lot of ways. Artesano Gallery does not fit that mold at all. From the moment we walked in, we knew that Artesano was the place we were getting married. We even cancelled another venue visit while we were still there! Ivan is not your typical wedding vendor; he will not say yes to all of your requests and he has strong opinions on the space and how the event should flow. However, we LOVED working with him and really appreciated the wedding wisdom he brought to our planning process (he was right about everything). We did mostly work with Talia and she answered all of our long lists of questions from day one, and kept us on track until the day of. She was really amazing to work with and coordinated everything in a way that kept me relatively stress-free. Our favorite part of the whole night was the FOOD. The food was above and beyond any wedding I have ever been to and we have not stopped receiving compliments, especially for the cocktail hour. It's really not fair to other wedding venues how good this food is. We were initially worried about them only having one bar in each room, but between passed wine and signature cocktails there was never a long wait for our 145+ guests. The staff were all attentive and made the whole night seem effortless and classy. Overall, the whole process was wonderful. My only slight complaint that is not even worth taking off a star is that they don't open the venue more than 15 minutes early for guests without charging an extra fee. That said, we found everything else to be priced reasonably in comparison to other venues, especially considering all the extras that the venue comes with (centerpieces, hundreds of candles, Ivan's orchids, the living wall, THE ARTWORK EVERYWHERE). Our wedding was absolutely perfect and we can't recommend Artesano highly enough.

From the amazing decor to the first-class food and service Artesano was the perfect place for us to get married! Every question we had was answered through quick responses. The service was impeccable! We have had an amazing amount of comments back from our guests that commended us on our level of planning... and we didn't have to do much on our own. Artesano deserves the credit for 98% of our compliments :)

Artesano Gallery truly is unlike any wedding venue we have seen and we were so pleased to have shared our special day here. Everything exceeded our expectations. The food, including the hor d'oeuvres, were amazing works of art. The venue itself was candle lit which made the ambiance very romantic and inviting. Artesano Gallery has various pieces of iron artwork throughout the venue making this location unique including a stunning vertical garden that is perfect for photos. The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had anything we needed and that our guests were happy as well. The dance floor is located on a different level than the dining area which makes the space versatile and interesting. We had guests that preferred to stay on the upper level who enjoyed their time just as much as those who wanted to go down onto the dance floor. We have received, and continue to receive, compliments from our guests from all ages saying what a great time they had, but especially the unforgettable food experience. We were able to sit down and eat comfortably which is apparently not so common for a bride and groom at a typical reception, but the Artesano staff made sure time and time again that our needs were being met so we didn't have to leave the table for anything.If we were to get married again, we wouldn't want to do it anywhere else! Thank you so much for creating everlasting memories and enjoyable experiences for our guests, but more importantly for us as bride and groom!
