This venue is located in McKinney, Texas, approximately 40 minutes from the Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Facilities and Capacity
A total of 175 guests can join couples for their wedding at Gather in Downtown McKinney. This charming ground-level space can be partitioned into two rooms thanks to curtains. This gives couples the choice of using one side of the room for a ceremony and the other for a reception. On the side of the room typically used for ceremonies, couples will find a white bookshelf against a gray wall. The cubbies of the bookshelf can be filled with candles, flowers, or other thematic decor for a couple’s wedding. One side of the room features a weathered brick wall. Hardwood flooring runs throughout the space, leading into the reception area of the room. Chandeliers also hang throughout both spaces, casting a bright light throughout the space. The glass doors on both sides of the room add additional light. A bar takes up part of the dividing wall between the spaces, allowing guests to order drinks from either side. In the reception area, an equally vintage brick wall makes up one side of the room, painted with old advertisements from a time when it was the exterior of another building. Toward the back of the room, a large mirrored section of the wall makes the space feel even larger.
Chairs, tables, and a dance floor await couples at this accommodating venue. This historic space welcomes couples for ceremonies and receptions, but also bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners. Couples can prepare for their big day in a bridal suite, while staff members help with setup and clean up of the event. Other wedding services at this ballroom include:
Gather's chefs can prepare delicious cuisine decided upon by couples at private tastings. These dishes can be served in the following catering styles for a wedding reception or other elegant event:
Gather in Downtown McKinney has preserved the original romantic atmosphere of this 1930s space. The hand-scrapped floors and tin ceiling are the original elements of this venue that are still around today, offering charm and history for a couple’s wedding day.

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!Sent on 01/18/2014

Gather was very beautiful! LOVED every second of my perfect day here! Called around and Gather was the only place willing to work with my quick schedule! Very affordable and your not paying all these extra fees for extra stuff you don’t need/want! They were flexible and were very sweet! The owner was amazing! She even helped me decorate and was basically my maid of honor/wedding planner/ and someone I trusted very much to have my perfect day in her hands! They responded fast and didn’t pressure you with anything! The owner and her husband were SUPER helpful! My family loved them as so did I!Sent on 01/14/2019
If I could give more than 5 stars I totally would! I recommend this place to anyone for any occasion!

Gather is hands down my favorite McKinney wedding spot if you are looking for a charming place to hold your wedding and/or reception. We have worked with them for many years now and all of brides are well taken care of by Crystal and her staff. The food is amazing and the atmosphere is absolutely one of a kind.
I have shot a few events at Gather, and every experience was amazing! Beautiful spot in historic McKinney, TX, and the staff always creates the most beautifully unique events for their clients. I have amazing images I'd love to share if you are considering this wonderful space. I must also add that the staff is very professional and great to work with...
Gather is the most romantic setting in downtown McKinney! The crystal chandeliers and brick walls are a perfect mix for any event!
