Why Choose Gather?

Why Choose Gather?2018-06-01T08:21:37+00:00

Everyone will remember a great party.

WE know what it takes to plan and execute the little details that DO make a difference. Little nuances and nudges that bring your guests, clients or work team together for a memorable experience. Add to that an amazing farm to fork food style, not typical banquet food, and you have the complete package.

Why Choose Us?

Stress Free Event Planning
We are happy to offer support with everything from vendor recommendations, audio visual needs, logistics for your event and on-site outdoor ceremony set up. On the day of your event we will help you or your planner coordinate everything for a smooth, seamless day.

Full Service
Our team is fully prepared for your set-up needs and any add-on items and needs your event may require. Our fully stocked scratch kitchen will make your catering needs simple to plan. We don’t allow outside caterers or food, other than a celebration cake, but we can even help with vendors for this if you need us to.

Presentation & Design
Whether it’s farmhouse tables down the center of the room, clothed round tables, trade show style set-up, classroom style, or a town hall or small concert set up theater style, our style is to make sure it is both modern, and comfortable. Our staff can help you with design add-ons and we can even recommend local interior designers who love to collaborate on a great party or meeting setup.

Boutique Style
We aren’t a giant ballroom at a hotel and we don’t want to be one. Our style is best described as upscale but casual. We are more interested in making your party a one of a kind than packaging everyone into a set style. Customizing menus, event styles, and your actual event is what we are best at. We are a little bit rustic, a little farmhouse, a little modern, yet still classic. This eclectic style allows us the ability to host corporate meetings to weddings. We want to turn ideas into parties and events where all want to gather.

Shareables
From oven to table, dishes designed to share and enjoy are a great way to bring your guests together. We have risers to allow room for your decorations and centerpieces, and we plate your salad so everyone can get started on their delicious meal.

About Us

Like you, Cindie Feldman, loves a fun, memorable party with amazing food. She has over 30 years of expertise in the hospitality industry and has attended her share of corporate meetings with “standard banquet food” and boring events with lifeless entrees that all equate to the same final thought: Why can’t the food and the venue be equally amazing? Enter… Gather.

As Executive Chef and Owner of both 29 Cooks Catering and Gather Meeting & Events, Cindie has thousands of parties, meetings, trade shows, and weddings on her professional resume. From years in a large hotel catering sales department, private catering, full service event planning, and a well known reputation for both quality and flavor in her kitchen, Cindie and her team never stop working to bring new and fresh ideas to the table. Her eye for detail and ability to make ideas come to life set her apart from the standard experience people are so tired of when booking events. She truly believes in helping people reach for that next great possibility.

Having the expertise of a former event planner and a chef all in one allows Cindie to lead her team in a way that removes the multi-step barriers related to booking a great event. This fusion of vision and flavor converts to a passion you will encounter when talking to her and her team about your event and ideas on an individual customized level.

The opportunity for Gather wasn’t planned. As 29 Cooks Catering successfully raises the bar on catering in the area, the increased requests of a place to hold larger events with Cindie’s team catering made her and her husband co-owner Kevin, decide to fill the void that they have personally experienced. A fun but classy place with great catering that is comfortable enough for business meetings but upscale enough for social events without looking like a hotel ballroom. Most importantly they envisioned an inviting space where a bride and groom would gather with friends and family to enjoy the day of their life. Kevin and Cindie created a plan for a venue where a group has the entire grounds to themselves with plenty of parking and great accessibility that has the ability to transform according to the genre of the event. The final touch was to create catering packages that are inclusive from the tables to the food with menus that have innovative and classic options with a modern twist. Ending an era of events with just ok food, what started as an idea, turned into the the next great possibility.

Gather Meetings and Events is where you can finally book that event in the perfect space with terrific food. We can’t wait to meet you!
