    Best Venue in Chicago!

    Working with the Galleria Marchetti was an absolute DREAM! Extremely professional and were patient with us throughout our whole wedding process due to us planning a wedding during the pandemic. Our main point of contact was Natalie, she was the absolute BEST. No question was too small and she always made us feel at ease throughout planning. Their staff is top notch and the venue is absolutely gorgeous. I felt like we were getting married in the secret garden but inside the city. When we walked into our wedding venue - we were absolutely blown away. Thank you Galleria Marchetti for giving us the wedding of our dreams!

    Beautiful hidden gem in the city!

    Working with Natalie was an absolute dream! My now husband and I booked this as our venue for our -last minute- Chicago wedding and could not have been happier with our choice! The entire Galleria Marchetti team was professional, organized, and really ensured our guests had a great time, which was super important to us as we were one of the first weddings post-Covid. Highly recommend!
