The gallery is a beautiful location for a wedding ceremony and/or reception. My husband and I loved the stunning photos on the walls and the chandeliers as well. We were so impressed by the cleanliness of the gallery and their efforts to recycle is admirable. The gallery manager, Maria Hadjian, worked closely with my family and me to create the best day we’ve had! Maria, the event coordinator for the location, kept consistent communication and was very helpful with all pertaining details. We had a wonderful reception!Sent on 08/16/2019

My husband and I had a gorgeous wedding reception at the Saxton. The space provided enough room for 200 guests, vendors, DJ, and caterers. The gallery has a good amount of tables and chairs available, and Maria is very helpful in planning events. We ordered all our alcohol through them, and while the beer prices were high, the liquor and wine prices were reasonable. The gallery made for gorgeous photos and our wedding day was a dream come true.Sent on 10/18/2017
