Guest Star: Urban garden glamour at Galleria Marchetti

Over the years, Stitely bands have performed at Galleria Marchetti dozens of times and every event has been produced with professionalism and class. We caught up with event and wedding guru, Corey Marchetti, and asked her to tell us more about her and her husband’s gorgeous urban venue.

Stitely Entertainment (SE): Can you give us a run down of the different rooms?

Corey Marchetti (CM): We have the East Courtyard for ceremonies and cocktail receptions and the Pavilion for receptions over 100 guests. We also have an indoor room, the Perugia Room, for cocktail receptions and small seated receptions. The smaller area, which is the West Courtyard and Ristorante, can host events up to 90 guests.

SE: What makes Galleria Marchetti different from other venues?

CM: The unique combination of the urban and garden environments and the outstanding food and customer service that comes from a boutique venue.

SE: Why should people choose the Galleria Marchetti for their events?

CM: The personal attention and customer service are outstanding. Each event is treated like our only event and each client is given extensive personal attention. Also, the gardens are amazing. Different things bloom year round and there’s so much charm in a garden event.

SE: What do your wedding packages include?

CM: We are able to offer almost everything on site, including food, beverage, and equipment. Most clients purchase their cake and flowers from an outside vendor and also hire a band or DJ on their own.

SE: What goes into creating a catering menu?

CM: We take into consideration what the market demands, meaning what is trending and what is tried and true. This means a variety of comfort food and cutting edge ideas to create an approachable but memorable menu. We like to highlight the food we know we really do well and that helps to keep the menus from getting too large.

SE: How does the Galleria Marchetti staff work with other vendors, such as Stitely Entertainment?

CM: One of the most rewarding things about this industry is working with outstanding vendors. We love developing personal relationships with vendors and helping couples to connect with those vendors. We provide recommendations whenever we’re asked.

SE: What are some of your favorite ideas you’ve seen from recent weddings?

CM: We love weddings that incorporate the garden theme into their event. It’s so beautiful and creative when weddings use rustic ideas like mason jars, moss, branches, etc., for their centerpieces. Vintage vases and décor also look amazing at our venue. Pin spotting is always lovely on the centerpieces since it looks so elegant with the white tent.

SE: Any interesting events that happened or cool organizations that have had their events at Galleria Marchetti recently?

CM: Some of our favorite events are animal fundraisers for organizations like PAWS and Tails of Hope. They always allow pets to attend the events and it’s exciting to see people so passionate about their cause. We have a doggy buffet and the raffle prizes are always so much fun.

Thanks to Corey for taking the time to talk with us. We look forward to seeing her and J.P. in August for another fabulous wedding!
