I wish I could leave a 5 star review for the Gallery, because ultimately my wedding was perfect and I was so so pleased with how the day went down. Unfortunately, getting to that successful point was a somewhat painful process. Two low points after we eagerly signed our contract and made our deposit: - We went through 7 coordinators at the Gallery in the year between signing the contract and the wedding itself. Recommend getting in writing anything that is agreed to so it can be consistent from contact to contact. That also meant we had to explain our vision to each new person when they came on board. It was a lot of in-person meetings, repeating ourselves. The final change occurred 2 days before our wedding - thank god for our day-of coordinator who handled that on our behalf. - The Gallery got a liquor license just a few weeks before our wedding. This changed our entire liquor plan from a BYOB bulk purchase from Costco and some donated kegs from a friend who owns a brewery to a much more official thing. Ultimately, Mark Samples (the gracious owner) stepped up and took care of the entire situation and made it right, but it was a big change just a few weeks before the big day. The space itself is gorgeous, and we utilized the entire place. The basement was set up for a really great cocktail hour, and we used the board room for coat racks and storage. The upstairs was gorgeous with the sparkly market lighting and chandeliers, with rounds and longs for guests and bridal party. We used the stage for both the buffet + the band. One extra special detail: my deceased father was an artist, and when I mentioned that to one of the early points of contact, she suggested we do a temporary installation of his work at the wedding (it is an art gallery after all). I dropped off his artwork the Tuesday before my Saturday wedding, and when I arrived it was set up so perfect and was such a sweet addition to my wedding. Would recommend with reservations.
