That all-important event deserves the perfect venue, a place where intimacy and celebration come together in one magical moment. Gather is a place where memories are made, and hearts are filled. Located on the Square in historic downtown McKinney, Gather is a unique venue with its original wood floors, exposed bricks, crystal chandeliers, and personalized service. If you want something more than a cookie-cutter celebration, more than the predictable, then Gather is your place. Elegance without ostentation. Style without trendiness. The kind of place people talk about long after the event is over.
