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.

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.

I wish I could give more than 5 stars!! I truly cannot say enough about Gather in Downtown McKinney. It was THEE perfect venue for our reception and I am SO happy we stumbled upon it one fateful day while in downtown. The minute I peered in the front windows, my heart was hooked. We are out of state, we actually live in California and weren't planning on having an out of state wedding...until we saw this place. In fact, I had meetings w/venues here in CA that I had to cancel because I knew Gather was the place. We have family in TX and all over the states so people had to travel, why not Dallas! We planned our wedding in about 5 months time so it was fast and furious but Crystal was amazing throughout the entire journey. Planning from 1500 mi away has its challenges and Crystal made it so smooth. She was available when I had questions, concerns etc. I flew in one weekend and she was available to make all plans. She even stayed in touch with a few of my other vendors. She is awesome and a joy to work with! Now, the venue itself, oh my gosh, I don't even know where to begin except, it was perfection and everything I had hoped for. SO me! Even my guests were totally WOWED by the place. I cannot tell you how many people approached me and commented and said it was amazing, so beautiful, so eclectic and classy. I could go on and on. From the brick wall to the chandeliers to the tin ceiling and beyond...this place it the bee's knees! GO and check it out. You will be so happy. The value, food and ambiance is well worth it and your wedding will be memorable.

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!
