About

Up to 150 guests

Tsakopoulos Library Galleria is a unique wedding venue located in downtown Sacramento, California. This impressive, five-story building was opened in 1992 as a premier event space in the state’s capitol. Over the years, it has hosted hundreds of weddings, dances, private dinners, concerts, and political functions in its hallowed halls. All rental proceeds go to the Sacramento Library, ensuring that your celebration will benefit the larger community. You and your partner are invited to host your special occasion in this magnificent venue and revel in the opulence that it inspires.

Facilities and Capacity
Tsakopoulos Library Galleria will dazzle you from the moment you arrive at its entrance, which is set with a sweeping, five-story glass window. Inside the 5,400-square-foot atrium, you and your guests will be bathed in natural light, which streams in through the window and skylights. From the tri-colored terrazzo floor, where you can dance the night away, to the suspended circular light fixtures above, the space radiates style and sophistication. These awe-inspiring light fixtures are an art installation called Prismatic Coronas, and they catch the sunshine and shimmer down on those gathered below. Your reception of 350 can be held on the gallery floor, and if you add the balcony the number rises to 475. Two meeting rooms are also available for more intimate events such as your engagement party, bridal shower, and rehearsal. They can hold 120 people each and can be rented separately or in conjunction with the main atrium. These meeting rooms are reached through the north entrance to the Galleria, the façade of which is from the original 1918 library. Featuring granite columns that tower above the onlooker, this entrance adds to the grandeur and historic charm of the venue.

Services Offered
Rental of Tsakopoulos Library Galleria comes with nine hours of event time, tables and chairs, a range of linens, china, glasses, and silverware. The venue also provides custom floral arrangements, décor, and wedding planning to ensure your celebration runs smoothly. In addition, photo opportunities are available on the spiral staircase, and a dressing room can be used for day-of preparations. Finally, comprehensive packages also include distinct catering services. The culinary team can prepare cuisine from all over the world and to suit any theme, no matter how extravagant.

    We picked this venue for a variety of reasons. Part of what we were paying goes back to the library - always a plus! It is close to so many transit hubs in downtown Sac. Most of all, we chose this venue because of the beautiful and dramatic feel of the venue. It has these beautiful windows in the front that allow for lots of natural light to come in. The pillars that surround the place remind me a lot of the pillars from ancient Rome. Because of all these beautiful details, we didn't have to spend a lot on extra decorations!

    The venue is absolutely perfect. The staff were super responsive to our needs and helped us out in whatever way they could. They were responsive before, during and after our event - that's all I can ask for.

    This is a beautiful facility. A portion of your payment goes to helping support the Sacramento Public Library so that is a huge plus.

    There are some restrictions due to it being a library and the floor is a gorgeous piece of artwork - but it does mean no bubbles or anything really that could land on floor and make it dangerous.

    They are extremely reasonably priced and provide a lot for the day. Just a wonderful place and I would recommend them for anyone who wants a beautiful space that is large but feels intimate.

    We were trying to decide if we should do an outdoor wedding or indoor wedding since it was going to be a September wedding. Let us tell you we were so glad we chose the indoor and Library Galleria. We booked the venue almost a year before our big day. Price was not bad at all and they allowed us to bring in our own liquor which was mandatory for me. They do require you to use their vendors for catering but we ended up finding the perfect caterer that helped with much mroe than food. We had 250 guests so we were getting nervous that it would be too small but it was not at all and Sandi who works there will tell you they can fit almost 350 comfortably. Overall great venue and it looks really nice at night along with your lighting, etc.
