    The Gala 417 Exceeded Our Expectations!

    I wish I could give them more stars! The owners Amberly and Coleman and the entire Gala team were so helpful every step of the way. Not only are they budget friendly, but their wedding packages include the tables, chairs, linens, and so much more so we did not have to deal with multiple vendors. The food and beverage menu gave plenty of options and was absolutely delicious. Having an all-inclusive venue kept our stress levels low and wedding planning actually enjoyable. Special shoutout to Sarah who decorated the entire venue for us, kept things moving smoothly which kept our wedding jitters to a minimum the morning of our wedding. The Gala team also broke down all our decorations and had them boxed up and ready to be taken home the evening of our event. Could not recommend The Gala 417 enough, and we thank you guys for making our wedding day absolutely perfect!

    Beautiful venue!

    We knew when choosing The Gala 417 we would likely have nothing to worry about on our wedding day and that became so true! First of all, the venue is beautiful and well maintained. There are so many things you can do with the space and the large bar is an added bonus! We knew we wanted a venue where we could have the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception in close proximity and The Gala is a one-stop-shop. There is also outdoor space near the water which is a huge plus. The planning process was easy and fun. Having a day of coordinator (shoutout to Sarah! She's the best!) made our wedding day stress-free and we knew the team would take care of anything we needed. The staff was so fun, kind, and took care of everything. Our guests were impressed and we have nothing but fantastic memories of our big day due to The Gala 417 team making it perfect! (Photos by Ashley Hesse Photography)
