Fairytale Wedding Experience
We had the most perfect day at Galleria Marchetti for our wedding on July 27th. The weather was perfect and the venue looked amazing. Their outside ceremony garden is gorgeous and fit nicely for our 150 guests. The servers and staff were so prepared for everyone. There were absolutely no hiccups during the day. Our reception was inside the tented pavilion and the table setup was perfection. Our guests had the brunch buffet and several of them mentioned to me how good the food was! I don't think I've ever been to a wedding with really good food. :-) It's usually inconsistent with the high guest count, but the chef did a top notch job with everything! Thanks to Natalie and the team for their responsiveness and professionalism throughout the whole process and during our big day. We would do it all over again if we could. Simply the best day of our lives!Sent on 08/07/2019

Natalie and Cathryn made it a dream come true wedding from start to finish. Their response time was unbelievably quick and their attention to detail was spot on with every last minute change I had. The food was out of this world and our friends are still talking about it. We had the ceremony in the glass room and made that call about 3 hours before when we realized it was too cold and they accommodated it perfectly.Sent on 12/20/2018

We love Galleria Marchetti!
We loved our wedding at Galleria Marchetti. This is hands down the most beautiful venue in the city, and you don't even feel like you are in the city! The grounds are amazing and allow you to add unique touches to your ceremony--such as outdoor firepits & smores....or having your ceremony and cocktail hour in their beautiful outdoor space.Sent on 10/28/2018
Everything ran smoothly with Galleria and they were so easy to work with throughout the entire process! We also received so many compliments on the food served by Galleria, most people said it was the best wedding food they've ever had, which is a huge compliment to the chefs at Galleria as wedding food is usually not very memorable.
You won't regret having your special day with Galleria Marchetti, it was magical for us!
