I had a WONDERFUL consultation with Jennifer. I just absolutely fell in love with her. She made me feel so welcome and that she actually cares and LOVES making your wedding a success. I specifically requested (begged) her to be the coordinator on my wedding day. She was quite prepared to answer my questions that I submitted via email. I am so excited about getting married at Gather. Jennifer made me so comfortable that everything would go off without a hitch for the best day of my life. I highly recommend requesting her specifically.

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!!!!

I love this venue. It is beautiful. The staff is friendly. My only issue so far has been with responsiveness. Sometimes i don't hear back for a while. And there was a major issue when we scheduled our food tasting. It did not get put in the schedule for the venue and no one was there. We drove 45 minutes in traffic to get there for the tasting and for no reason. When Crystal realized qfter we called her she was mortified and immediately gave us a discount. When we did the tasting the food was great. Great venue.

My mother-in-law took care of all the rehearsal dinner planning. The venue is great and so was the staff, however the food is not that impressive. We had individual lasagnas which were overloaded with cheese and not piping hot throughout. The food quality needs some work but overall it was a great night.

If it weren't for our first tasting, this place would have 5 stars. My mother-in-law had Gather selected for our rehearsal dinner less than 24 hours after I said yes! I am so glad she did. Our rehearsal dinner was absolutely stunningly beautiful.

First let me give the information why they did not receive a 5 star review from me. My MIL handled almost all of the communications and menu for this event . We drove to McKinney for our first tasting, to find out the coordinator wasn't there (some type of family emergency). Instead of re-scheduling, the owner's father was there to present the tasting. Don't get me wrong, he was very nice, but unfortunately not very helpful for the purpose of the tasting. I would expect a tasting to be where the food is brought out and each dish is described in detail. They were just placed in front of us and he left us to ourselves to guess. We asked a few simple questions about entree and side pairings, but he didn't offer much insight. If we hadn't been so dead set on the location and look of this venue, it's likely we would've moved on to another vendor after this experience.

We ended up scheduling another tasting, also due in part to changing our minds on the cuisine. I don't remember her name, but it was a much more successful tasting.

Now, the good. The space at night is just gorgeous. All of our family and friends were wowed by the space. My MIL had our florist bring in baby's breath in Mason Jars and then filled the back wall with candles in jars. The food was *exceptional*- especially the hot passed appetizers... Lobster bisque shooters for the win!

Though I am not aware of the total cost for the rehearsal dinner as it was handled by my gracious MIL, I wouldn't exactly say Gather is for the frugal. There is a fee to rent the space as well as food and labor costs. What I will say though, is if there is room in your budget, I would highly recommend for an intimate and unique rehearsal dinner.

First off, Gather is absolutely gorgeous. It has a modern, rustic feel with beautiful chandeliers and exposed brick walls. We used Gather as both our wedding and reception venue. With just 50 guests, it was the perfect size (although it could accommodate twice that)! The wedding was held in front of the candle wall with the back half of the hall set up with rows of chairs. After the wedding, everyone moved to the alcove on the other side for a cocktail hour while we took pictures. During this time, the staff at Gather also cleared all of the seating from the ceremony and set up tables and a dance floor. After pictures, it was time for dinner. The food was delicious, and fast! We never felt rushed, but we also never had to wait on the next event. After dinner, dancing commenced. The small size of Gather made it feel very intimate even with only 50 guests. The warm, inviting atmosphere helped everyone get out of their seats and join us on the dance floor (the beer and wine may have helped as well). The entire evening was perfect.
The other big reason we loved Gather was because of Crystal. Crystal is the owner of Gather as well as one of the event planners. Although we asked her a ton of questions, she never got tired of them and was always happy to help. Where Crystal truly shined was on the day of the wedding. From the start, she was there helping to keep everything on track and supervising our setup. She was the perfect combination of flexible and helpful. Whenever we needed anything, she was there. Gather does offer a day-of wedding planner, which we did not opt to use. However, with Crystal we felt that we didn’t need anything else (this was an unplanned but awesome surprise). I’m not sure what else a day-of planner could have done! Crystal had it all taken care of.
One final thought, Gather is BYOB. We saved a ton of money getting all of our alcohol at Costco.

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!
