Gatherings is an all-inclusive event venue that offers the perfect wedding trilogy: an intimate, vintage-style setting; superb, made-to-order cuisine; and beach wedding ceremonies. The venue itself is a fetching Victorian in Pacific Grove, a historic Monterey suburb known for its simple charm.

Built in 1907, the recently restored moss-colored house now has modern amenities, but still retains its original Art Deco flair. The home makes the most of its intimate size, with votives and fresh flowers spread throughout the rooms. Events here are warm, relaxed affairs, and doors are left open so that there’s a natural flow from one area to the next. The foyer introduces Gatherings’ inviting aesthetic: cherry and gold brocade wallpaper, Deco fixtures, and soft impressionist masterpieces that convey the elegance of a bygone era, and a special treat is a viewing window that peers into a state-of-the-art chef’s kitchen, and guests are welcome to wander in and check out the culinary action up close.

And if your romantic vision includes a beach wedding ceremony, then Gatherings will help you stage yours on one of the local beaches. Lover’s Point, a lovely coastal enclave, is just a couple of blocks away, so afterwards it’s easy to return to Gatherings for the reception.

In keeping with the personable theme, Gatherings offers butlered receptions that allow friends and family to roam freely. Committed to five-star service, the impeccably turned-out staff is both friendly and well trained. All food is cooked or grilled during the event—which is not only tastier, but more fun, too. Gatherings has several event packages that offer terrific value. All of them allow you to bring your own alcohol and they’ll provide the bartender at no extra cost.

This place was absolutely perfect for our son's rehearsal dinner and day after brunch. The location was on a small side street in Pacific Grove in a small home built in 1907. It is furnished with antiques from that period but the kitchen is equipped with modern restaurant appliances. The flow of the layout and back patio with fireplace and heaters made it ideal for hosting our 55 guests in an informal butler style passed meal. The food was fabulous and the wait staff friendly and inobstrusive. Dealing with their event coordinator was easy. She was a pleasure to work with, had keen knowledge of their menu and was helpful in making decisions on every aspect of the events. From the minute we met Susan Villani and she showed us around the venue the day before the rehearsal dinner, we felt confident that they were going to take care of organizing everything and all we had to do was put our attention on our guests and enjoy the parties. And they did! Everyone remarked on how much they loved the place, the food and the staff. I can't say enough praise about Gatherings. If you are hosting a small wedding, rehearsal dinner or brunch, this is a perfectly delightful place to have it.

The amount below reflects what we spent for the rehearsal dinner package plus added appetizers, beverages, taxes and gratuity. Their contract was itemized clearly and there were no surprises.

If your wedding/ reception will be 75 people or less, you will find nothing that compares to " The Gathering ", each member of their staff goes way beyond to meet the needs of your very special day. Our experience was exceptional with family and friends still raving about the beautiful venue provided at "The Gathering". And we haven't even mentioned the food, if you want to put a real WOW into your reception, definitely attend a menu sampling at "The Gathering " and be prepared to have your socks knocked off! The quality, preparation and presentation of their food offerings is truly amazing and delicious. We were very pleased with the attentive services provided us at "The Gathering ".

I would recommend the gatherings above any venue that I looked for. My vision was a wedding by the ocean and a venue to accommodate 45 people. Erin was extremely nice and helpful with everything from start to finish. We chose a roaming style for our reception which made the atmosphere a lot more relaxed and gave our guests more time to socialize. The food was absolutely amazing. You will not be disappointed!

This is a first class, top notch wedding reception venue. Richard Wood is an absolute gem to work with, ensuring every detail is in order. The home is beautiful, very clean, elegant and cozy for smaller more intimate receptions. The staff is phenomenal, very attentive and personable. I can't say enough good about the food! Many menu options for a group so everyone is pleased. We were so fortunate to find this venue and I would highly recommend it to any couple looking for a classy, inviting and fun place to celebrate their nuptials.

The one-stop shop for ceremony setup/breakdown, a cozy yet elegant reception venue and delicious food services, these guys are great! Erin, our point of contact for all of the planning, was extremely accommodative and pleasant to deal with. She never hesitated to answer any and all questions we could throw at her and met with us several times throughout the process to help it all come together. She is truly a tremendous asset for the Events by Classic Group.

We pretty much maxed out the venue limit of 75 persons, but it didn't feel over-crowded and the service never felt strained. Our ceremony setup at Berwick Park was on schedule and as agreed, and we had a wonderful time at the Gatherings house afterwards for our reception. On-site staff were pleasant and attentive, and the food was excellent with compliments from many of our guests. Allowing us to stock our own bar made us (and our guests) happy.

Several of our guests complimented the "roaming style" dinner service, and we would have to agree that the lack of formal seating made the event much more fun and intimate by encouraging more mingling, instead of parking people into designated seat assignments. Even so, those who did wish to sit seemed able to find a seat without any trouble. Many guests asked how we found such a wonderful and unique spot, and everyone (including us) felt relaxed and had a great time!

Bottom line: Professional, excellent quality and a good value (plus discounted rates in the off-season). We cannot recommend Gatherings highly enough!!

We chose Gatherings as our event venue for our small, intimate wedding ceremony and reception. We looked at several places before selecting this venue. Gatherings was a great choice and exceeded all of our expectations. Erin was our event planner and she was AWESOME! We do not live in the Monterey area so had to make several trips there throughout the planning process. Erin was amazing each time we interacted with her. Gatherings has a beautiful bridal suite upstairs which I used on my wedding day. When I entered the bridal suite, I was greeted with champagne and a platter of delicious fruits and cheese to ease the wedding day jitters. Gatherings is an all inclusive venue and many things were included like the set up and break down of the chairs used for the ceremony then setting up for the reception. The food was DELICIOUS. It was an amazing day and a great time was had by all. THANK YOU ERIN AND THE ENTIRE GATHERINGS STAFF FOR ALL THE MEMORIES :-)

I can't say enough good things about Gatherings. We had considered other options and venues but the all-inclusive nature of Gatherings really won us over. They take care of almost everything including setting up and breaking down one of their pre-approved wedding sites (we chose Berwick Park, only a few blocks away from the reception site), valet parking, preparing and serving amazing food and providing a 'captain' to keep things moving on schedule. Although having all of this provided as part of a package deal may sound cookie-cutter, everything was customized to our liking and the Gatherings staff worked closely with us to ensure that we were happy and kept updated on the process. Thanks Gatherings!

We had our reception at Gatherings and our ceremony set up by Events by Classic at Lovers Point Park. Everything was absolutely amazing! Gatherings is perfect for anyone wanting to have a small intimate wedding. We barely had to do any additional decorations as the place is already beautiful. They were so helpful during our entire planning process and were always available to answer my questions. They were always very reasonably priced! I would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking to have a wedding in Pacific Grove!
