Wedding Reception Venue – Anderson O’Brien Fine Art Gallery

We recently had the pleasure of touring yet another wedding reception venue. Brides looking for a unique ceremony, reception, or even rehearsal dinner space will love this venue. Anderson O’Brien Fine Art Gallery, located in the Old Market, is in an ideal location and has all the flexibility a bride and groom could ask for in a venue. Here are just a few of the many features we love about this venue.

The best thing about this venue is the flexibility the space provides. Movable walls covered in ever-changing paintings allow you to arrange the space to fit your needs. Want to hold a small ceremony followed by a cock-tail hour? This space is perfect! Need a reception venue with room for tables and a lounge area? The venue is perfect for that as well! If you can imagine it, this space can be exactly what you want and need.

The flexibility of the Gallery allows you to set up the space to fit your needs

This venue is best for creative brides who want to work with a blank canvas. Aside from the art on the walls, it is up to brides to create the ceremony or reception venue of their dreams. Brides are responsible for renting chairs, tables, linens, and anything else needed to create the ideal wedding feel. Anderson O’Brien has open catering, allowing you to bring in your favorite foods and personalize your reception down to the appetizers. Not sure which caterer to go with? Just ask the ladies at Anderson O’Brien! They have a list of preferred caterers for you to look at if you need ideas. The venue includes a kitchen and prep area for caterers to work from, ensuring that your food is fresh and ready for guests when the time comes.

 When it comes to decoration, the ladies at Anderson O’Brien recommend following the less is more philosophy. Black or white linens will make the art on the walls pop, which is truly the only decoration you need in this gallery. Not only does the gallery serve as it’s own decoration, but it also has great acoustics - perfect if you plan to bring in your favorite band!

For a sit-down dinner, the staff here recommends having no more than 150-175 guests. Ceremonies allow for a little more flexibility, depending on how the room is set. With no added security fees and the option to clean up the next morning, there is no reason not to rent this space!
