Gather on Broadway offers a variety of sumptuous menu options for appetizers, entrees, and late-night. Our amazing Chef Jyll Everman (Food Network star and Gather’s executive chef) creates flavors that everyone will love. She brings expertise and a passion for food to everything she creates. Best of all, she personalizes the late-night menu to represent the couple. Although couples can hire an outside, licensed caterer (fees apply), it’s not recommended. Chef Jyll’s selections are made fresh in-house and served hot.

We encourage couples to pick out a dessert from their favorite bakery. The dessert must be purchased from a licensed bakery, not homemade. Donuts, cupcakes, cookies, and dessert bars are popular. We provide dessert service (fees apply) and will serve the dessert when the couple requests. We will gladly cut, plate and serve wedding cake.

Couples can count on our staff to be friendly, courteous, and devoted to serving them and their guests. At our initial meeting, I listen to the engaged couple to determine what they envision for their wedding day. Then, the staff and I execute everything as perfectly as possible so the bride and groom don’t have to worry about anything on their special day.

Three consultations are held 6 months before the wedding day: Design, Food and Bar. At these consults, we discuss the menu, timeline of events, ambiance, décor, music, photography, and other details. Consultations are held in person, over the phone or via Facetime. The bar consult is handled through email. One month before the wedding day, we hold a final consult to pull everything together.

The rehearsal schedule varies. It depends upon if and when the venue is available. We’ll talk about options during our Design and Final consults.

The standard time is 10 a.m. on the day of the wedding. If no event is scheduled the day before the wedding, decorating can occur on this day. The wedding couple should designate a few volunteers to the decorating crew. We’re here to answer questions and lend an occasional extra hand.

Convenient parking is located in the 250-space parking lot behind Old Fort Square, just north of Gather on Broadway. Parking is free on Saturdays and free after 6 p.m. on weeknights. In addition, metered parking is available across the street from Gather on Broadway. Meters are enforced from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Some couples rent a shuttle to transport guests from the nearby downtown hotels. Uber is another option that’s convenient for guests. https://www.uber.com/events/

The wedding party is welcome to get ready in a private second floor suite, which can accommodate up to 10. The suite opens as early as 10 a.m. and offers the convenience of getting ready on-site. Even if the ceremony if off-site, some wedding parties get ready in the Suite. The girls can have their hair and make-up done in the suite if they work with a salon that travels.

Weddings are so typical in our society. People get married all the time, but it’s so fun for me to see a wedding morph into something different for each couple. In our industry where there’s a wedding every weekend, you’d think it would become routine. It doesn’t. It’s so much fun!
