About Gather in Downtown McKinney

Gather in Downtown McKinney, a banquet hall in the greater Dallas, Texas area, offers a historic location for a couple’s wedding. Couples will find an industrial space with elegant touches for their wedding, including bright crystal chandeliers in front of vintage exposed brick walls. 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.

This historic space welcomes couples for ceremonies and receptions, but also bridal showers, engagement parties, and rehearsal dinners.

    Morales Wedding

    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!
    If I could give more than 5 stars I totally would! I recommend this place to anyone for any occasion!

    What a great venue!

    We recently had my son's rehearsal dinner at Gather and it was amazing. The team and staff were great to work with and the venue is beautiful.

    Book Gather today!

    I very rarely give EXCELLENT ratings but Jennifer at Gather definitely deserves them! She was responsive - sensitive to our specific needs and helped us with ideas. Our corporate event received rave reviews. It was elegant and comfortable and fun. Jennifer has such a range of experience in events that she is calm and relaxed, yet she pays attention to details. We felt like we got more for our money with what she offered. Everyone on her staff was friendly helpful and attentive to our guests! Book Gather today !

    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.
