About Us

Family-owned and operated budget
friendly venue located in Crosslake, MN.
Our family turned an empty building into the wedding reception of our dreams in October 2021. After our wedding, The Gathering was created. We wanted to continue utilizing this family owned space to provide a beautiful, spacious, and affordable venue for other couples. We would love for you to enjoy this space, making your wedding as special as ours was. Our hope and goal for this space is to provide everything you would need without having to worry about anything.
