Truly, I do not believe I have enough words to not only sing the praises of Sandi Stewart, who was our contact at the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria, but her entire team. From the day our daughter selected "The Galleria" as her wedding venue, all the way through the culmination of our wedding event, the process was absolutely fluid and seamless. Their professionalism is unparallelled. We were made to feel as if we were the ONLY event in town. We had two walk-through's, first our daughter and son-in-law, then the second one with me, (mother of the bride). We booked it immediately, signed, sealed & delivered so to speak, on the spot. Our request for a third meeting / walk through with Sandi and several of our vendors ( caterer, DJ & wedding coordinator) was met with enthusiasm. We were able to establish a timeline, expectations and make certain we were all in sync. We did make several changes to our contract prior to our event date, each change was accommodated with grace and ease. Our wedding day we were greeted with smiles, warmth, and EVERYTHING we had requested had been done to absolute perfection. Not only have we recommeded the Galleria already, I would absolutely book the Tsakopoulos Library Galleria for another event myself should I need such a venue.

My husband and I chose the library galleria for our November wedding this year. We fell in love with the elegance of the building and the location. Our wedding day couldn't have gone more perfectly! In the months leading up to the wedding the staff were so helpful and sweet. Sandi was so quick to respond to all of my emails. She even spent time drawing up several CAD layouts to help best accommodate our large guest list. Many of our guests loved our venue. I would definitely recommend the library galleria to other couples searching for a great wedding reception site.

The Library Galleria was an excellent choice of ours to have a wedding. The place looked magical on our wedding day and will always be a special place for us. Staff there were awesome. They were very responsive and professional and were extremely patient with us during the entire planning phase.

The only negative was there was one homeless individual sleeping by the 9th st entrance that evening.

The Library Galleria is the most stunning venue in downtown Sacramento, and as a wedding professional, I have appreciated the upstanding service provided by their staff. I have worked with them to create beautiful, dreamy weddings for many brides and corporate clients all of which have run very smoothly. In addition, the daytime natural light filters in beautifully and in the evening, the chandelier creates an elegant, romantic mood.

We had our daughter's wedding and reception at the Galleria and it was Spectacular! The most awesome venue to have your wedding. Although plenty of space to accommodate a few hundred guests, it was also very quaint and romantic at the same time. The ambiance was perfect. Staff is extremely helpful, professional and most accommodating. Perfect inside and out for wedding pictures, mingling, dining and dancing. From the foyer to the ballroom and elegant balconies, I would recommend this venue for weddings and any event.

I had my wedding ceremony here because the place is beautiful. I had my reception somewhere else because it was too small to hold a large party and the balcony was booked for an art show. Prima was very helpful and responded quickly. Everything went smoothly.

The Library is a beautiful venue to book. It requires little decoration because the ballroom is so beautiful. THe venue is a great value, but does have strict rules about decorations, candles, and vendors. They have a list of 8 caterers you must choose from. If you are willing to stay in their guidelines, you will get a beautiful venue for a great price.

The hard thing about the library is that there is a set group of caterers you have to choose from. They have only a few since there are certain rules that need to be followed since the library is a federal building. The venue is beautiful.

The woman we worked with to plan the floor plan and the event out was amazing. She worked with us so that we could get what we wanted while still following venue rules.

However, the people we had the day of the ceremony were not as great. We were able to find them before the events began but as soon as the event started, they were MIA. We needed them to get wireless microphones and had to end up using the wired mics that came with our DJ equipment. Only wish they had been more available.

There is no music able to be played on their sound system so if you plan on having a DJ, you're good to go. Otherwise, you'll need to do like we did and rent your own sound equipment.

Overall, it was beautiful and I loved every minute I was there. No regrets

The first place that Future Hubby and I looked at for our wedding reception. There is something really sweet about all that money that we are ponying up for our party going to support the Sacramento Public Library System, something we both love. The coordinators so far have been really accommodating, meeting us there on the weekend as live in San Francisco and we couldn't just drop in during the week.

There was a mistake on my first contract but it was corrected fairly quickly, the other drawback is that you have to choose a caterer from the limited list, so if you have your heart set on a specific type of food this could be a deal breaker. I'm happy with the caterer we ended up choosing and they are used to throwing really large events, making our 200+ guests seem almost manageable...

The actual event coordinator we worked with, Prima, was very knowledgable and helpful. If you are looking for a beautiful and unique space to accomodate a large wedding this could be it for you!
