Gather is one of the most beautiful venues I have ever seen. Its whimsical and romantic feel made us want to get married there! Due to our guest size, we didn't consider but Gather but immediately decided to hold our rehearsal there. The staff is polite and coordinator very friendly. The place is BYOB, which is another plus. Overall, a beautiful venue!

The venue was perfect for our event and our event, and our guests enjoyed the atmosphere and the food very much. The staff was available to answer questions in a timely manner during the planning of the event, which we appreciated since we were out-of-town hosts.
Be sure of your date when you schedule your event and sign the contract. We had an unexpected date change, and the deposit was not refundable once the contract was signed.
I recommend bringing in your own wireless microphone for toasts. The microphone that was available was not ideal for communicating with all of our guests throughout the room.

Gather is a fantastic place for a wedding. We had 55 guests and it was the perfect size for the venue. Too much more and it gets a bit crowded.

Crystal and Megan were great. They really helped make the wedding go smoothly as we lost track of time and everything we needed to do. The DJ they recommended was excellent. He really did a good job with coordinating with Gather and played good music.

Gather doesn't need much for decoration but the decor does change and you might need to add something for your wedding; we added a wall of tulle with lights to cover a mostly empty wall.

The butternut squash lasagna was great but we did hear some complaints about the meat lasagna being too salty to where some of our guests couldn't eat it.

Gather is a great place for your small to midsize wedding. It's beautiful and looks great in photos. It comes decorated for you, they help with the set up, the food is good and the coordinators are great! We highly recommend it!

Overall, this was a superb experience! We definitely recommend it. Everybody had an amazing time and our memories from the event will be cherished forever.

PROS
-The venue was absolutely spectacular. We really enjoyed the brick walls, the chandeliers, and the antique decor. The staff worked well with our florist/decorator to ensure the place looked beautiful for our big day.
-We had several particular requests over the months (ensuring the venue was wheelchair accessible, tweaking menu items, arranging the layout, etc.) and the coordinator was fantastic at going the extra step to make the experience enjoyable.
-The coordinator was able to find time during her busy schedule to review various items and ensure we were on track with our plan.
-The food was delicious. Quality and presentation was wonderful.
-The coordinator worked well with the other vendors (DJ, florist/decorator, photographers, alcohol supplier) to ensure everything was organized and flowed seamlessly.
-We did not find ourselves in any state of panic during the planning, even the week before. Time management was good.

AREAS TO IMPROVE
-We needed to constantly review the details with the staff since we found ourselves misaligned at some points early in the process. The communication and attention to detail improved closer to the date.
-We were informed that appropriate glassware would be used for all drinks; yet, we were surprised to see champagne being served out of regular glasses, not flutes.
-The bar staff could have smiled and been more friendly during the event. They certainly gave the impression like they did not want to be there (feedback from guests).
-We were misinformed about the quantity of police officers needed for our event, which impacted our budgeting; however, we were able to rectify this later on.
-We had requested no tip jar since we already paid the gratuity fees; yet, a tip jar was still placed on the bar counter. This was taken down soon after we had noticed.

Crystal and Megan are amazing!!! Crystal helped us from start to end. She is very flexible and so helpful.
Megan stayed during the reception to make sure everything run smoothly.
All my family and friends loved this venue and complimented how I found this antique + unique place! Me and my husband appreciate their hard work and we highly recommend for any wedding event.
We invited 100 guests and it fit perfect! everyone loved their food as well.

FYI, this place is already decorated with bricks, wooden floor, and antique furnitures, you will save so much money on decoration for wedding. Pretty interior with all crystal chandlers.

Honestly, my husband (Sam) and I could not have been HAPPIER. Such a perfect place to get married! I have a background in wedding planning and wanted to get married at a venue I had never planned a wedding for. Luckily, none of my brides had chosen this venue (honestly... I don't know how!). My husband found this venue and from the get go-- Crystal has been comforting, helpful, knowledgeable, and personable. She always has answers, always finds time for you, and makes your wedding day just amazing. Unfortunately, I can tell you that most venue owners are NOT like Crystal. I tell you that so you don't take her for granted any second of the day.

The venue alone has such style and class. I only had to decorate the tables and bring some photos in and that was all. It was so nice to have a venue that has all of these decorations already there. Our guests were just in awe over the place! 100 guests max may be hard to narrow down to if you have a big family like we do... but it is so worth it! Nothing about the venue felt crowded, there was enough room for a big dance floor, everyone had easy access to the bar. It was just great!

Not only was the venue perfect, but the location is awesome. The Grand hotel is literally a one-two minute walk away. The Grand was such an awesome hotel to work with. Very personable, recognized my name when I called a few days before and they asked if I was getting excited about the wedding... just sweet. There are also great places for rehearsal dinners. We had our rehearsal dinner at Café Malaga off of Church St. (AMAZING!!!!!!). They have a huge patio which is where we hosted a rehearsal dinner for 60 people. There are so many other great places nearby. The location of Gather is just perfect in downtown historic McKinney. Please contact me if you have any doubts/questions/concerns. I promise I have a good answer for you.

Thank you again, Crystal!

P.S.- They made us snacks and took them up to the bridal suite :-)

Gather in McKinney is phenomenal! They are not only reasonably priced, but a GORGEOUS, unique venue as well. They were always prompt returning emails and sat down with my groom & I several times to ensure everything was exactly how we wanted it. Crystal went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect & our guests raved about how beautiful the venue was & how good the food tasted. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to have our wedding!

After all of the great reviews and awards, we thought Gather was the place to have our wedding and reception, but we were wrong. We were disappointed on so many levels that we decided to wait at least two weeks before writing this review to make sure we didn't say anything too harsh. One of our main issues was that Crystal, the owner, began not emailing us back, or it would take over a week to email us back. This happened a few times over the period of four or five months due to her "training new staff", but eventually it became an issue - this would be fine if it wasn't within three weeks of our wedding day, and she told us from the beginning email was the most effective way to communicate with her. Our second issue was our own fault: the food was not very good. We had the fajita bar, but did not try it first, and it was a huge disappointment. Plus, Gather is just too expensive. **Something that is important to note is that Gather keeps your credit card information on file (like any other venue), but they have the information handwritten on a piece of paper in your folder, which I found laying around during our rehearsal. It is supposed to be "stored" in the back office, which is blocked off by a curtain, easily accessible to anyone. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous. It gave off the feel we wanted for our wedding, and it was just right for the mood we were looking for. It looks excellent as a background for pictures, and the location in downtown McKinney offers many different spots for photos. While we were disappointed with our experience using Gather as our wedding venue, the setting is quite beautiful and does offer many options.

Gather Mckinney is definitely a GEM found in downtown Mckinney. Crystal, the owner, is so wonderful to work with and took care of everything down to the smallest detail. She is definitely experienced with weddings and knows how to please her brides! She will make your wedding day exactly how you want it! All of my guests absolutely LOVED this venue and kept asking me how I found this place. It is a lovely and elegant venue, and perfect for my wedding with about 85 guests. I didn't have to worry about decor since this venue already has its own decor and charm. The food is delicious. I had a plated dinner, so there was a wait staff who were very attentive to my guests. A bartender was also provided through the venue and she was great.

If you are looking for a unique and beautiful venue, this is the place for you!

Gather is AMAZING. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect. The staff was so helpful. They made our day completely stress-free. The food was great and the venue is beautiful! I highly recommend them to anyone looking for an intimate venue. I cannot count how many of our guests told us how great the place was! We had our ceremony and reception there and everything ran smoothly. I have nothing but good things to say about them.

So, overall I was pleased with my wedding. First, the good things. Gather is an absolutely beautiful venue, it is really convenient to be able to have the ceremony on the shop side and then have the reception on the restaurant side. It is nice that Gather is kind of a one stop shop for events. They will help with just about everything. No renting tables, hiring staff, looking for a caterer, etc. I had planned everything with Crystal, but she had a family event and was out of town on the day of the wedding. Shelby took over for her. Shelby was very nice, and seemed to have everything planned out. The people at Gather were usually really good about responding to my emails quickly. Each meeting with Crystal went smoothly.

There was a storm the day of my wedding and I really appreciate the venue working around that. That being said, all of the servers seemed really mad, except Shelby. I was disappointed with the grumpy expressions on the servers faces and their VERY casual dress. I know it was cold out, but if you are working a wedding, I would think you would bring nicer clothes to change in to. The food tasted good, but was cold. Also, a sauce that was supposed to come with the chicken wasn't served. The groom asked for it, but none had been made. They did make some after the groom asked, but it was brought out after people had already eaten half their food. There was also an issue with the furniture. There was a bed in the shop where we were to have the ceremony. I had been told that the bed would be moved to make room for the ceremony. I didn't realize that this meant it was going to be moved into the reception area. Once the ceremony was over, the bed was moved back to the shop. I just wish that the bed had been dismantled and put in the storage room. It made the venue seem cluttered and it was awkward to have guests watching furniture be moved around.

Overall, I really liked Gather. Crystal and Shelby were great. They do need to work on some logistics.

There is a reason Gather is the winner of McKinney Magazine's Best Wedding Venue. Crystal and her team are above and beyond wonderful.

I didn't have a wedding planner. My fiance and I worked for almost 2 years, we spent a year saving/getting our stuff in order and a year planning this whole endeavor. Also, our wedding budget was 6k. UNHEARD OF, RIGHT?!

We had a Sunday Brunch following our 1pm ceremony at Chestnut Square. I was a little worried about the overlap between the regular brunch at Gather and when my wedding would start. I was also worried about setup for the reception, my Maid of Honor volunteered to do it and SURPRISE, Crystal and the staff at Gather had already had most of it done. I honestly did not expect them to do that part of the setup.
I had boxes of decor designated per table, a chart of decoration placement, and pictures for reference included to help out my super nervous MOH setup but it was taken care of. She was super relieved.

I believe that if you are a bride/groom on a budget and looking to get the most out of your wedding budget Gather is the way to go. The venue itself is versatile in terms of decoration and mood. It can be modern, rustic, southern, preppy, timeless...it's up to your imagination. Plus, there are so many beautiful things already on location to add to your wedding.

The food is wonderful! There was food at our Brunch Buffett that I had no idea was even going to be there. There was food that I was too full to even eat but it all looked and smelled so good. There was so much food! To be fair, an entire table of people that RSVP'd did not show up but there was still so much left over and our guests are all big eater.
Also, the presentation was great and blended in well with the other decor.

We got so many compliments on the venue, the location, and the food. Seriously, there were 3 other weddings in the family before ours and we won favorite food. ;)

Thank you Crystal and the staff at Gather!

Gather in Downtown McKinney provided us with the wedding of our dreams and NOT just at the actual wedding! All through the process the owners, management and staff of Gather provided us with 100% of their attention and effort to answer all of our questions, address any concerns we had and help us out in any way that we needed. They made it SO easy to relax and know that there were no problems they wouldn't handle for us so we could focus on the other details related to hosting a wedding. We have told friends (and strangers!) about what a perfect venue Gather was for our wedding. All of the staff were incredible, gracious and went the extra mile to take care of all the details of the evening. We especially loved the event coordinator Shelby - she was incredible! She was organized, quick to answer all emails and phone calls and was so sweet and pleasant in every interaction. 11 out of 10 for Shelby and Gather in Downtown McKinney!!

The gather in downtown McKinney is such an incredible venue. It has a casual and yet extremely elegant atmosphere that was perfect for our wedding reception. What we loved most is that the venue interior is so beautiful on its own that we hardly had to purchase anything in the way of decorations for our wedding. (We basically just brought some centerpieces and a few pictures). The food was equally amazing. We got so many compliments about our reception and I feel that it is all thanks to this gorgeous reception space and the wonderful service that we received from start to finish. Crystal and Shelby were friendly and professional and such a pleasure to work with. We could not have dreamed up a more perfect venue if we tried. If you are looking for a fun and unique location for a special event then look no further!

We used Gather for our Rehearsal Welcome Luncheon -- it was much bigger than a typical Rehearsal dinner as we wanted to 'welcome' all the out of town guests to Texas and this was the perfect venue!

Love the style and décor of the venue and they had all the equipment for our slide show. Also love that since it's BYOB we brought the ingredients for them to help us serve our FAMOUS Texas Iced Tea recipe which is deadly and delicious.

If you are searching for a gorgeous, intimate, and dreamy venue for your wedding, then I would highly recommend Gather in Downtown McKinney. Crystal and her staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable on all things wedding. Coming from a bride who did not know where to start, I knew I was in good hands as soon as I signed up with Crystal to have both my wedding and reception at Gather. Crystal and her staff were so kind to this clueless bride, and helped me every step of the way. I was worried I would need an extra hand (wedding planner) to help me out, as I am not as much of a "hands on" bride like many other brides to be are. However, Crystal walked me through every step of the way and was so completely patient and kind the entire time. If a little blip popped up, she was always there to smooth it over, and help answer my questions. Our wedding was so beautiful and all of our 85 guests were so complimentary of the venue, the staff, and the food. Overall a wonderful experience and a happy bride!

Gather in Downtown McKinney responded with the following comments:

Hi Heather,

I am so sorry to hear how disappointed you were with some of the service we offered. When serving dessert we typically wait to brew coffee once it has been requested to ensure it is fresh and hot. I will work with my staff to make sure they are more vocal about asking if people would like coffee so this never happens again.

In regards to the dessert I will most definitely sit down with my staff and make sure they know if a request to hold dessert was made then they hold dessert. We are here to serve our guests whatever and whenever they want.

Thank you so much for your feedback. I hope all is well with you and your new husband.

Sincerely,
Crystal Bryant

We hosted our ceremony and our reception in this location, one following the other. We’d discussed with the venue-organizer (VO) and the event planner (EP) how to transition from the ceremony to the reception, deciding after the bride/groom exited to move guests to 1/2 of the facility for cocktails/appetizers so that the chairs from the ceremony could be removed & the space rearranged as dance floor space. At the event, the guests were moved but the chairs were not. When it came to our first dance, we had to ask someone to remove the chairs. This was disorganized despite our advance plans. When it came to our catered dinner, the bride was served food last & 20 min. after everyone else. Some guests waited before eating; when they finally had the chance, their food was cold. Many would expect a professional VO and EP to know better. Also, we personally provided fruits, cheeses, and breads to be arranged on the reception tables. We specifically did NOT buy red grapes as we were told the caterer would get these from her regular supplier and add them to ours. At the event, no red grapes were in the table arrangements, and this again was not the pre-arranged, pre-paid plan. The VO and EP again did not follow through. Finally, we asked the VO what we could use at bride/groom’s exit. We were told bio-degradable confetti as this could be swept up but any remains would not be harmful to the environment. This we purchased: 12 sticks. When it came time to leave, the confetti could not be found anywhere. The bride had to ask the VO where the confetti sticks were and the VO said there were too many. She had put them ALL away in a storage closet. Bringing back the sticks, the VO had 12 sticks removed from retail packaging. The bride negotiated then w/the VO to use just 4 sticks, 1/3 of the #. To emphasize, the most upsetting part of this experience is the VO’s choice not discuss this but rather to hide it. We couldn’t even return the un-used portions.

Everything was lovely and the food was delicious. We had a rehearsal dinner for 54 and it could not have gone smoother. The space was large enough to accommodate the crowd and yet we had the intimacy that you want in a rehearsal dinner. The service was wonderful and the bartenders could not have been more attentive and thoughtful to our guests. We sprung a gluten free request for one of our guests the evening before the event. Crystal had the chef make a delicious substitution. We were able to save money by providing our own liquor and table decorations. We dropped these things off the day before the event and never thought of it again. The staff set everything up for us. It was beautiful when we walked in the door for our special night. We spent the evening here and never felt rushed to leave. The tiramisu is to die for! The house salad, lasagna and roasted veggies were exceptional, too. Thanks, Crystal, for making this a truly enjoyable evening.

The food was phenomenal, guests loved all of the décor, and Crystal was an amazing partner to work with during the entire wedding planning process.
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Gather – I could not have picked a more perfect venue to host our wedding reception at. You will not be disappointed – I would highly recommend Gather (along with Crystal and her staff) to ANYONE!

Crystal and her staff provided the setting and the food for a gorgeous and delicious wedding rehearsal dinner. There were 50 invited guests and approximately 38 in attendance. Everyone in attendance was from out of town or from out of state. Our event could not have been more perfect! The food was delicious; service was excellent; and, thanks to decorative touches and floral arrangements from Unique Unique Designs (they work collaboratively with Gather) our event was even more wonderful than the image I carried around in my head for eight months! They executed our plans and desires perfectly. Everyone in attendance commented on the delicious food (lasagna) dessert (creme brulee) and the elegant/shabby chic setting. Crystal at Gather and Marci at Unique Unique Designs really went above and beyond the call to make our dreams for the rehearsal dinner come true. I would highly recommend Gather and the decorating talents of Unique Unique Designs for your next event.

This venue is AMAZING! Not only is it visually appealing for pictures of your event and for creating an overall ambiance but the staff is wonderful and accommodating. As part of the decor they added candles which made the setting very cozy and romantic. It was wonderful! The food was great and in perfect, easy to eat portion sizes. The staff was very attentive and I felt taken care of and relaxed the entire time. My family and I worked closely with Crystal Bryant when planning my reception at the Gather. Crystal was extremely helpful and knowledgeable when it came to ideas for the reception. As a bride, planning a wedding can be very stressful, but with Crystal's help along with the great staff I felt much more at ease and confident in the success of my event. I do wish there was a pa system for toasts and things like that so the guests could hear better. I loved the idea of a projector for the slideshow we created, however it was too bright outside still and we were unable to see it very well at all. If there was some way of covering the windows to show something like that I think that would be beneficial. Overall I was very happy with my experience at the Gather and have already recommended it to all of my friends! Thank you so much for being a part of my special day :)

Overall the experience was amazing. Our 50 guest enjoyed the ceremony over on the shop side and then the reception on the restaurant side. The food was great and we still have guests telling us it was the best wedding they've been to! Crystal is working hard to balance both the daily restaurant and we know she is working towards expanding her staff which would alleviate the problems with miscommunication and forgotten appointments. A tip for any bride wherever you go, write down everything you want and is agreed upon in the initial meetings to ensure you still get it on your day. The day of Crystal and her staff were amazing! Crystal was attentive and helped the events move smoothly when our pictures took much less time then we had anticipated. Her staff also was a joy and my guests told me how much they could tell that the staff was enjoying themselves. If we ever renew our vows we will definitely come back here and I've already got friends that have booked events because here because of ours! Do not pass up this gem; it's the perfect little venue!

Hi Mary Ellen,

I am so glad to hear that MOST of your experience at Gather was a good one. I do apologize for the AV quality. as our business grows we are learning new things and that has jumped to the top of our list. We are already researching new equipment and will have this issue fixed soon for all future events. We wish your son and new daughter -in- law all the best in their new life.

Thank you,

My wedding reception was a dream come true thanks to all of the work Crystal and the ladies at Gather put in. I had to cut my guest list back to make the small but incredible venue work, but it was SO worth it. The food was wonderful and the service was even better. All of my guests were over the moon with how beautiful and special Gather was. It was a completely unexpected surprise from the moment they walked in the door. Crystal came with all the great know-how and I just followed her lead. She made everything SO EASY so that I could enjoy my day. I would be happy to recommend Gather to anyone who is considering a smaller wedding, but still wants it to be extra special!

My wedding reception was a dream come true! The service was excellent, food was hot and delicious, the set-up provided ample room for all of my guests, the decor was impeccable, and as the bride - I didn't have to worry about a thing! Crystal (Owner & Creative Director) pays strong attention to detail and will make your vision come to fruition. Marcie (owner, designer of Unique, Unique) next door provided design services. She utilized vintage pieces along with her natural stroke of creativity to design an exceptional and impressive space. My family and friends were amazed with Gather and almost one month later we are still receiving cards and phone calls with the highest compliments about our wedding reception. They are person-centered, pleasant to work with, and genuinely want to make you happy. I did not leave Gather as a client, but departed as a friend. I would highly recommend Gather to any bride who is seeking a unique, beautiful, and eclectic venue. Crystal and her team of professionals are top notch and the best in the industry!!!

The service, food, and environment were exceptional to the cost! My husband and I were so pleased with everything, as were our guest. The ladies that run the Gather went above and beyond our expectation... again, very pleased with our experience!

Gather Downtown is a wonderful intimate venue for nontraditional hotel ballroom events. We hosted 60 family and friends for an afternoon lunch complete which came with a delicious menu, fabulous cake (for a team who traditionally doesn't do cakes), dance floor, DJ and TABC bartender. The staff was great to work with and very helpful with suggestions on menu, table layout and timing of activities. They are experienced wedding reception professionals there to accomodate your dreams and wishes while ensuring every detail is picture perfect.

Had our bridal shower here and it was the best ever! The venue is absolutely beautiful, the pictures don't do it justice. The food is great and the presentation lovely. The staff is outstanding and took care of every detail, down to handing the bride each gift to open and removing the discarded wrapping. They even offered to take photos for us! Our reception is too large for this venue or I would definitely use it!

I am an event planner and I was helping a dear friend plan a post wedding party for her son and his lovely new wife. I had always admired Gather in downtown Mckinney becasue of its electic decor and charming space. I just knew this would be the perfect spot to have the event. We worked with Kristin, the venue's event planner and she went out of her way to perfect all the details and to assist in creating everything we had envisioned. What a delight it was working with her and the rest of the Gather team. The catering also was exceptional and because Gather does not provide alcohol, it makes for an exceptional value, bringing in our own supply. I highly recommend this restaurant/venue to anyone who is looking for a different and beautiful space to hold their next event!!!!
