Our east garden remains unmatched in Chicago for gorgeous and spacious outdoor entertainment space. Upon entering the gardens through wrought iron gates, guests pass by brick walls adored with flowing ivy and are led into a spacious park like setting filled with seasonal blooms, terra cotta pots, and stone benches. In just moments, and within view of Chicago's skyline, you are transformed into a Gatsby-esque botanical oasis.
It is perfect for an elegant ceremony or reception, as well as more playful activities including country picnics, children's games, and not to mention Marchetti's famous Bocce ball! Portable canopies provide for overflowing food displays and cocktails in the garden. If weather turns inclement, we will transform your event quickly and effortlessly to our indoor galleria and tented pavilion, thus ensuring that the fun and memories remain uninterrupted.
Many couples who plan their wedding reception at Galleria Marchetti also opt to have their ceremony in the beautiful east courtyard. The ceremony set up fee is $3.00 per guest, which includes standard black chairs set theater style on the lawn, pillars, and microphone and PA system. Alternate chairs are available for an additional charge. Floral Design may be arranged by Galleria Marchetti or may be arranged through outside vendors.
In cases of inclement weather, ceremonies are conducted within the tented pavilion.
