A little bit about us...
"Weddings can be tricky because you have never planned one before- so you have no idea what you are doing.. but once you have done it- and know what you are doing- you are never supposed to do it again"
That is the quote that brought The Gala 417 to life!
Founders, Amberly and Coleman Ferguson had a vision, a dream, a goal- a determination- to simplify the wedding industry. They wanted to create a beautiful, elegant, modern- and incredibly luxurious wedding venue that focused on making things easy for engaged couples.
The Gala 417 is exactly that. A huge open floor-plan with white marble all over, dripping in crystal chandeliers. It feels like you're walking on glass with the reflections of the chandeliers coming off the marble floors!
Beauty and elegance... Check.
Making the wedding planning process easy and fun... All couples have 24/7 access to the Gala Bride Text Line, a complete Gala Guide that helps couples create everything from their timeline to processional line up- to where party favors are placed, a planning assistant, a day-of coordinator, and a closing night-of Coordinator! All included with the venue rental at no additional cost! (Check!)
As an all-inclusive venue, we also include all tables, chairs, linens, catering place settings, glassware, feature wall, arches and so much more, all for no additional charges!
Also included is a complimentary Bridal Suite with high ceilings, another chandelier (of course!), three Hollywood vanities, a dress wall for easy steaming, storage and photos, champagne station, full length mirror, and extra seating!
Of course, another huge part of every event is THE FOOD! Creating exquisite, delicious and well-rounded entrees has been a priority since the dream. We think it is important that all your guests have the option to choose something to eat that they are for sure going to enjoy! All dinner packages are plated dinners with 4 entree options for all your guests! With each package, you will be able to offer all your guests a beef, fish, chicken, vegetarian or vegan option as their meal! In addition to large menus and delicious entrees guests are familiar with, we make sure the plating is precise and that each plate looks beautiful!
THE BAR is definitely not last.. or least! The Gala 417 features a 50 foot while marble bar with.. you guessed it.. another huge crystal chandelier overhead! Behind the bar are giant mirrors facing the marina, with floor to ceiling gold display shelving for bar glasses and top-shelf champagne!
The Sunset Deck is perfect during cocktail hour and late-night reception! The modern umbrellas provide the perfect amount of shade while overlooking the marina and having stunning views for sunsets year-round!
There is so much more! From our lavish Grand Exit options to special discounts with local vendors, to next-day pick up of all your decor and personal items! We truly cover all the bases, and are with our couples every step of the way.
Every single Gala 417 couple since 2019 has made a difference in our lives, and this company! It is truly the highest honor to be chosen as someone's wedding venue!
