Beautiful venue, fantastic staff, wonderfully memorable experience!
My husband and I recently got married at Galleria Marchetti and it was perfect!! Seriously, from my first visit to GM all the way through our big day, Natalie and team and Galleria were amazing. My husband and I got engaged in December 2019 and in February of 2020 chose Galleria Marchetti for our wedding venue with a wedding date of October 11, 2020. Just a matter of weeks after booking Covid-19 hit. Natalie's communication throughout the entire process was awesome. She always kept us up to date with any changes and ALWAYS held strong and kept hope alive that we'd be able to celebrate on our original date. The team at Galleria made certain that if we did have to cancel due to Covid-19 we would be guaranteed a new date of our choosing. The customer service we received, especially during such trying times, was incredible. Natalie was always reachable via email or phone, she was always patient and no question was too small or insignificant. The range of packages and offerings at Galleria Marchetti makes it easy to have the exact event you want. We had so much fun choosing food and trying everything at the tasting. The venue itself is BEAUTIFUL. The ivy wall, stone floors, fire tables, and garden make GM feel like an Italian garden nestled in the middle of big city. The roof on the Pergola side retracts so it's both and indoor and outdoor space, which made for a perfect scenario during a pandemic. Our wedding went off without any issues as planned on our original date. Natalie was on site day of and everything was perfect. I could not have asked for a better day. Thank you to everyone at Galleria Marchetti who helped make our day the best ever!Sent on 10/23/2020

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!Sent on 05/03/2021

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
