Wedding Experience - The Gala Events Marietta
Our experience at Gala Events was superb. From the initial meeting to the planning and the day of the wedding was a wonderful experience. Gala Events came through for us. We had weeks to plan our wedding. Their recommendation from memorable ceremony outside, the delicious food, the beautiful flowers, to the photographer was AMAZING!!!!!!!!. We did not have to worry about anything. The hall was beautifully decorated. I was treated like a queen on my wedding day by the personal coordinator Chatelle. She took care of our every need. Everything flowed smoothly. I would recommend Gala Events to anyone. Misty, Connie, Pam and Chatelle you are definitely walking in your purpose.Sent on 02/15/2020

The Perfect Mitzvah
We were so fortunate to find Gala and an unexpected opening on our date, as it was late already within 3 months of our planned event and our original venue was unable to meet our needs. Connie and Pam were so easy to work with, they are both highly professional and have excellent recommendations for contractors (DJ, Caterer, Decor, Bartenders) to make an already intimate and beautiful facility the perfect setting for any event. Ours was our daughters Bat Mitzvah, and she couldn't have been more pleased with how everything turned out. It turned out to be a beautiful afternoon/evening and and absolutely wonderful event!!Sent on 04/26/2019

We used Gala for one of our large scale company fundraising events to raise money for the United Way. This venue was perfect for us. The staff were very attentive and our overall experience was outstanding. I would highly recommend working with Kathi to schedule your event here, her and her team are phenomenal!Sent on 02/07/2017

Misty is one of a kind! She is friendly, attentive, answers any and all questions we have whether silly or not, and she has been making this process so smooth for us so far. I would recommend the Gala to anyone!Sent on 09/30/2019

50th Birthday Party
Gala provided a great venue for 80-90 guests for a party. Service and coordination was excellent. Kept me on track as I planned party from Another state. Place was clean, staff was available and on time. Things flowed perfectly.Sent on 01/03/2020
We did not use the outside space but it is delightful.

My Dream Wedding
The wonderful ladies who work at Gala Events made my dream wedding come true! It was more beautiful that I could have ever imagined! Almost 4 weeks after the event I still have friends and family commenting on how wonderful it was. Everyone had an amazing time. I would recommend Gala Events Facility to everyone and anyone who is looking for a location to hold a wedding reception! I would give them more than 5 stars if I could!!! Cannot recommend them enough! From the planning stages to the big day itself, every little detail was taken care of. One of the event coordinators even worked very hard for us on her birthday! I will miss working with the three wonderful ladies at Gala Events.Sent on 09/25/2019

Best day every

They were very professional, Pam Roland, and Connie were the best.. the day was so beautiful.
I live in Texas and had my wedding in Georgia. They ensured me because I stayed out of state they would make sure everything was perfect and it was. It was the most beautiful day ever. Down to the wonderful staff that made sure everything was perfect.Sent on 07/16/2019

Intimate and Wonderful location
Our wedding experience with Gala Events facility was amazing. Our special day went off without a hitch. Connie and our personal friend Christy worked together to make sure my daughter's wedding/reception was everything she wanted and more. Connie, Pam, and Misty listened to what my daughters and I wanted and worked with us on every level. We brought in our own catering and Connie was very pleasant with them. I really appreciate Connie making sure everything was timed perfectly. I know she worked very hard to make our experience extraordinary. The wedding was beautiful outside on the Patio and the reception inside with all the tables decorated and spaced perfectly was enchanting for our event. One of my disappointments were negotiations of some of the decorations and I felt additional costs that came out in our final walk-thru were un-necessary and should have been revealed in our beginning conversations or compromised to accommodate us at the last minute. To leave curtains on the wall at our expense seemed excessive being that they were up at the time of our first walk-thru and the contract signing and were still up at the final walk-thru. All in all, we had a fantastic day! All of my guests raved about the gem of a place the Gala Events Facility is and I give huge compliments to the 3 women running it. I would highly recommend for any occasion.Sent on 07/13/2019

The ladies of Gala are spectacular! My husband and I enjoyed planning our wedding with Gala every step of the way. If we were getting married again, we would definitely choose Gala. The ladies of Gala work together as a team. Each one is proficient in their area of expertise and knows exactly what to do/say to make your day special. Everything was perfect for our wedding day! We can't thank them enough for everything that day!Sent on 06/09/2019

A Wedding Venue so good, you'll want to get married twice!
There are a few key moments in everyone’s life that are burned into the back of your mind forever. Whether they be moments of great travesty or moments of greatest tribulation, they are something that will stick with you for the rest of your life.Sent on 12/02/2018
My greatest fear was that my Wedding Night would fall apart in one way or another, and be something I looked back on for the rest of my life and cringe a little bit.
I am happy to say that with the help from Connie and Pam from the Gala Events Facility, I can instead look back on my Wedding Day and smile.
Honestly, Gala Events Facility ticked off every single box I could have ever wanted for planning our big day. Not only is the venue absolutely beautiful in style and design, but also extremely affordable. We visited MANY, MANY venues prior to finding out about Gala, and were on the verge of just giving up and eloping. However, after our very first meeting and quote session with Gala we were absolutely sold!
Most of the previous venues we visited lured you in with cheap venue prices, but then absolutely nail you to the wall with mandatory food / catering minimums. I am happy to say that this was not the case at all with Gala Events Facility.
Just as a comparison point, our Gala Wedding of 50 people cost a fraction of what the other venues were charging. The same size wedding, at the four venues we visited before that? Minimum $20,000, with massive mandatory catering minimums. Gala Events Facility was less than HALF THE PRICE of the other venues we viewed, which is absolutely amazing for what Gala provides.
The venue isn’t small, but it is intimate in size, so if you have an absolutely huge wedding guest list than you may need to search elsewhere. However, our wedding was 50 people and we still had plenty of room for more. While intimate in size it more than makes up for it by being an absolute visual feast. Watching my wife walk down the aisle towards me, outside in the cool November air with the fall leaves and flower petals flowing around her, is a memory that will stick with me for the rest of my life. That moment of perfection was made possible by the hard working people of Gala Events Facility.
Speaking of Hard working people, Pam and Connie are 50% of the reason you need to go with Gala for your wedding. A beautiful wedding venue means nothing if you can’t actually pull off the wedding planning to make it happen. They were both there each and every step of the way with suggestions, tips and tricks to cut costs, and a firm hand to keep us focusing on the important tasks.
In fact, Connie was even there on our wedding day itself to keep the event rolling along smoothly. No wedding is perfect, and there will be mistakes….Unless you have Connie steering the wheel of your Wedding Ship. She steered us clear of every iceberg, every rocky shore, and it was smooth sailing the whole way. I am sure there were small mistakes that happen at every wedding, but Connie was a complete professional who fixed each and every one of them without the Bride and Groom even noticing. I honestly did not notice a single mistake, and that is the mark of a true professional wedding venue and coordinator.
I know I have rambled on for quite a while, and honestly I could keep going for several more pages if you let me…I just want to clearly impress upon you how much of a positive experience I had with Gala Events Facility.

Gala met all my needs. I was prego while beginning the wedding planning process and wanted to find something quick, easy, and affordable. Gala met all the criteria and made the process less stressful. I was able to get all the big stuff I didn’t feel like shopping around for (i.e. caterer, DJ) while still being able to add my own special touch and accomadations. Gala is a perfect one-stop shop when trying to plan a wedding on a budget and not knowing exactly where to begin. Thank all the ladies for making my day amazing!!Sent on 10/09/2018

I can’t say enough good things about Gala. I would recommend Gala to anyone and everyone in a heartbeat! Gala truly is the TOTAL PACKAGE. It’s the best value in the area, and their customizable package makes planning your unique day so easy and straightforward.Sent on 05/15/2018
I have literally ZERO complaints with Gala. Not a single one. Everything went so smoothly, I can hardly believe it.
The absolute best part of Gala is Connie. Her services are indispensable! She answered all my questions in a timely and friendly manner leading up to the big day, and went above and beyond to help us with a separate issue. She really is a pro - she made sure that everything ran smoothly during the event, and always looked out to make sure that the bridge, groom, and family were all taken care of.
The vendors offered by the facility are top notch, too. We got so many compliments on the cake and food, both a part of Gala’s package. The DJ service was professional and available for all my little nit-picky needs. The outdoor space is like a garden party space, and the indoors is charming and elegant. It was the perfect venue for our dream wedding.

I love The Gala, my wedding was beautiful, intimate and full of fun. I loved sitting in the dressing room with no worry that everything was being done for me. The only time I lifted a finger was to revive ang give wedding bands. A special thanks to Limda, she was so funny, tentative and super helpful. Also whatever she was using to fan me in the garden while taking pics felt like AC. I’m ready to do it all over again.Sent on 07/25/2018

My husband and I chose to have our wedding ceremony and reception at Gala on June 2, 2018. Our wedding was beautiful and everything we could’ve ever dreamed of. As a very simple, yet detailed bride, Connie ensured that all my dreams came true! Connie helped decorate, organize, and think of all the things this bride forgot! I could’ve never survived wedding day without the incredible staff at Gala. I highly recommend Gala based on my experience, in regards to the facility, the prices, and the customer service. We will be recommending this facility for any birthday parties, weddings, and events!Sent on 06/15/2018

Gala Event Facility is the absolute best! I give Gala Facility top ratings because of the impeccable service we received. Kathi is the coordinator for Gala. She is positive, professional, prompt and proactive towards our needs for our special day. Kathi is always on time, she listened to our request and advised accordingly. Kathi’s coordination style is simple and left my fiancé and I worry free. We communicated our vision and she delivered. Kathi’s vendors are superb. There selections for reception meals were great. We opted for catering from the Savory Plate. I loved the presentation and professionalism displayed by the chef and staff. The food is flavorful and filling. The bakery Confection Perfection is simply amazing. There were various cake options to select from. My only complaint is that all of the cake options were so delicious, it was a challenge to select the flavor of our wedding cake. Our wedding reception was phenomenal! I couldn’t ask for anything better. Kathi was attentive to my needs and made sure my husband and I were we’ll taken care of from beginning to the end. I received positive feedback from all of my guest about food, music and service. Gala is and forever will be in my call log for any event that I have. Thank you Kathi for making our day special and worry free.Sent on 01/29/2018

We had our wedding on Saturday December 30 2017. The plans for it began about 4-5 months before that. The process was seamless and Kathi Bland, the event coordinator, communicated with us along the way. We had a wonderful ceremony outside, at the Gazebo, and afterwards had a reception there inside. We would highly recommend this facility for any special event you may have.Sent on 01/02/2018

Kathy was so professional and had some great ideas on how to make the event really pop. Being a fraction of the price of a hotel ballroom, we also saved money by bringing in our own alcohol.Sent on 01/15/2018
1. The ceiling fabric covers a gold ceiling. The gold color really determines if you should get the fabric or not.
2. YES! to uplighting! It really increased the ambiance of the event.
3. Photo Bus - Yes if its a photo bus type of event. This is one of the nicest photo busses I've walked inside and a great value. This was also our guests "take home" gift.
4. Fabric on the wall. I didn't get this since the wall was obstructed by the DJ, MC and dancers.
5. Spandex chair covers - The chairs are navy and a goldish brass. This didn't fit in our color scheme so we opted for the chair covers. they were comfortable and no one tripped on them (always one of my worries).
6. Wine and water glasses - The venue charges for wine/water glasses. It's not much $ and adds to the look when you first walk into the space.
7. The back seating area. There is a corner bench on a long wall in the back. I put fluffy pillow from five and below on the bench and put cute helium balloons in the recessed ceiling. I wanted to hang a LED curtain ($15/Amazon) but never got around to it.
8. Outside Patio - there is an outside patio that is great in the warmer weather or perfect in the colder weather if you have heat lamps.
9. Bar - Hire the bartender - it classes up the whole event.
10 - Soda package - there's also an iced tea/lemonade package for a bit less. You can bring in your own soda. Does it save money? Who knows. But since I had lots of soda left over from a previous event, it worked for us.
I expected there to be lots of issues, there always are with event. But, there weren't. The staff is so professional and have done this so many times, it works like a well oiled machine. Although I know I'm one of their many events, Kathy made me feel like I was the only one.

Kathi Bland was Gala Event's primary contact for our daughter's wedding reception. Absolute professionalism from our first facility visit until the happy couple left the venue for their honeymoon. Kathi was very detailed through the planning phase and clearly outlined our choices for catering, facility decoration and the overall staffing/setup package. Excellent communications - all questions leading to the event were quickly answered. Just a note: we chose The Savory Plate as our caterer - outstanding food, presentation and service! Throughout the reception, Kathi seamlessly coordinated food/drink service and staff. At the end of the day, Kathi and Gala Events Facility handled all details beautifully, which allowed our family and guests free to thoroughly enjoy our daughter's big day. We just had fun!Sent on 10/22/2017

We really had an exceptional experience with the gala event facility for our wedding. Kathi really catered to our exact desires and needs throughout the whole process. When you are choosing your wedding venue you really have to take in account a lot of different things and Kathi makes it very easy to decide who you want for your special day our entire process was so smooth and so easy due to all of her help and I couldn't be more thankful. Once we learned we could bring our dog with us on our wedding day to the venue and the reception we were completely sold because, of course, he is a part of our family. Even further than that I was able to be in as much or as little contact as I wanted with Kathi throughout the whole process which was very comforting as a bride to be. The venue is gorgeous with many different areas for beautiful photos and I really enjoyed how customizable everything was thanks to Kathi and the staff at The Gala. We were able to choose our own colors and bring any items with us that we wanted as well as utilize the items that were available for us through Kathi and The Gala. I couldn't be more pleased with our experience and if I had to do it all over again I would choose The Gala over and over. I wouldn't limit this venue to only a wedding venue though it's beautiful and a fun atmosphere even for parties such as sweet 16s or over the hill parties I would even love to do a family reunion here again because that's what our wedding felt like and I am so thankful that we were able to experience such a incredibly beautiful day with all of our loved ones and to have such a great coordinator and venue to host us five stars out of five from us, absolutely I recommend this venue. We were able to have our rehearsal at the venue the night before our wedding which made for a smooth transition process into the morning of our wedding. I loved every aspect of our wedding experience and reccomend The Gala for a beautiful, personalized experience.Sent on 10/25/2017
