This unforgettable, darling museum created everything I dreamed of in a place for family and friends to celebrate our wedding. I planned the event from out of town in Pennsylvania and sent my grandmother and a bridesmaid on an initial scouting mission to other banqueting halls in the area and to this museum, and they both agreed that Hope Gallery was undeniably the place. Were they ever right!

My fiance and I have a love for traveling and for lavishing time in worthy museums, and the Hope Gallery communicated the vintage travel-inspired reception that was held for us in Pennsylvania without any of the cost -- the decor is already there! The building is a repurposed bank from the early 1900's, with great stone columns out front, a fabulous stained glass ceiling on the second floor, and a vault that is still intact. The collection is varied but true to the old European Masters aesthetic, with both originals and reproductions displayed. The Danish family who owns the gallery are artists and collectors, and that was also one of my favorite aspects of renting the space -- working with a family business that made for such personable and professional staff to work with!

The floor layout was ideal for an open house situation, with round tables situated in alcoves lined with artwork that allowed for significant guest flow. The kitchen and serving amenities were perfect for our needs. Guests enjoyed appetizers and desserts on the second floor and also browsed the collections on the first floor. The museum is also accessible to Temple Square, which was something we were hoping for in order to take family photos on the grounds of the Salt Lake Temple and then walk to our venue in order to maximize our photographer's time and our own. The short walk from Temple Square to the Hope Gallery made for some great photos and avoided the need to park and repark in the city. Hope Gallery does not have its own parking, but there is street parking and multiple parking garages nearby and none of our guests complained about finding a place to park or were deterred from getting themselves to the open house!

Camilla, the manager, was a pleasure to work with, both in the planning phase and on the day of. She did the follow up, was incredibly responsive, provided tables and linen with the (hugely reasonable!) rental fee, assisted with welcoming and directing our 120 guests, and has the best personality. Upon our departure, Camilla presented my groom and I with our choice of a print of one of the gallery's artworks, which we now have framed and hung in our apartment as a reminder of the day -- and is also a great piece!

This place is a treasure. I can't recommend the gallery as a wedding venue (or just for a tour) any more highly.
