Even for a team that specializes in A-list affairs, Gathering Events’ past 12 months made for a banner year. One major highlight: helping design and decorate a three-day event for an “off-the-record” client in California for whom Pitbull, Robin Thicke, Alabama Shakes, and Buddy Guy performed; for whom more than 20,000 stems were arranged into hundreds of bouquets of every sort; and for whom a 53-foot trailer trucked chandeliers, vases, and décor from Charleston to San Diego. Add that Gathering-styled Big Days landed in Martha Stewart Weddings, Brides, and Charleston Weddings magazines, and on blogs from Style Me Pretty to The Wedding Row, plus that a pictorial on their bouquets nailed the cover of flower magazine, and owner Heather Barrie, along with her right-hand accomplice, Mary Ruth Tribble, were headline-grabbers all around. To think they also redesigned their website (you have to check out the galleries), revamped their logo, and were behind some of Charleston’s top events (Baker Motor Company Fashion Week® and signature events for BB&T’s Charleston Wine and Food Festival), all in addition to helping scores of brides say “I do,” and you’d think they’d be crying out for a breather. Instead, though, the inspired ideas keep coming. We can’t wait to see what their vision will bring to Charleston Weddings Magazine’s Spring Bridal Show; after six years of dressing the tents in grand, reception-style glamour, we can only imagine the setting they’ll concoct for 2014.
