We were so happy that this venue was beyond affordable, and also can provide all tables, chairs, and linens at no additional cost. Colleen is great, easy to work with, and very helpful when brainstorming ways to make the space work. We're very excited to have our wedding and reception here in November!
*UPDATE* - Our wedding was amazing! Colleen was amazingly accommodating and many guests complimented how beautiful the space was. An installment of impressionistic mountain paintings were up during our wedding, which we LOVED. Great value for a great space!
PS - lots of great photo op places that my photographer found in the alley's around the venue, I LOVE all of my photos!

I absolutely adore this venue!
As a wedding professional, Gallery 1874 has been one of the easiest venues to work with. Coming into an event knowing that their is day of coordination is always something I appreciate. Their staff is very attentive and is always available to answer any questions that vendors or clients have on the day of, or in advance of the event or wedding.
Aside from their awesome team, I am in love with the aesthetic. The historic architecture of this property, in addition to the tasteful art on display, makes for a visually pleasing combination for any event.
