We got so many compliments on our wedding at Gatherings! Everyone said it was the best wedding they’d been to! The service was outstanding! They treated us the royalty! It was so hard finding a venue that was the right size for our small 55-person guest list. This was the perfect spot. I love how they do a roaming reception, we were able to mingle with everyone the entire time.
Residing on the east coast, all the wedding and reception planning was conducted via phone. From our initial phone call to the day of the event, the follow up was outstanding. The venue is perfect with 2 separate rooms and outdoor patio for guests. I received many compliments from guests on the location, staff, interior and exterior decor as well as the delicious appetizers. Absolutely beautiful!
We are so thrilled we picked Gatherings. Our day felt seamless and effortless. The food was incredible. Seriously out of this world delicious! We felt waited on instead of needing to be in the host seat. It was really a magical day, and a perfect venue for our small & intimate wedding. I fully enjoyed my day without any distractions because Gatherings made sure everything was what I wanted.
