Welcome Summer with an Effortlessly Elegant Brunch

  • Photos by Braedon Flynn

It's summertime and the entertaining should feel easy. Nothing suits the season like a laid-back, "take a bite and take it easy" brunch. That's where the girls of GATHER Events stepped in to set the perfect scene and gather people together for good food, engaging conversation, and great company!

Meet the Hostesses

For this sweet little team get-together, GATHER Events Los Angeles co-owners, Laura Allin and Natasha Coughlin, pulled together a stellar team of creatives to host the most beautiful brunch.

Minimalist Meets Modern Setting

Leaning on their love of beautiful minimalism, this talented duo brought together neutral tones and natural materials to create a setting that is soft and light as well as fresh and modern. A hanging basket of lush greenery is suspended above the table, draping it's tendrils in the air and evoking a certain wild, overgrown charm. We love the juxtaposition of the light airy space and florals with the industrial, edgy warehouse feel.

On the Menu

Catered by Joan's on Third, a family owned and operated Gourmet Marketplace, Café and Full Service Catering and Event Planning Company, the brunch included an amuse bouche, salad, and entree. There was salmon belly to start, followed by a salad of local greens and vegetables and finishing with a lamb Osso Bucco. There were, of course, traditional brunch pastries like flaky croissants and crumbly scones. Complementary to the metallic tabletop decor, how could we not mention the lovely calligraphy on the menu and place cards that were beautifully written by Nicole Miyuki?

It's All in the Details

Inessa Nichols Design was on hand to deliver a beautiful floral display of green plants and white flowers — simple and fresh, while the simplistic yet stunning tabletop was curated by Casa de Perrin, a husband and wife duo who specialize in curating tableware to set the table with style.

For easy lounging, corners were filled with furniture in neutral tones, rented from Circa Vintage Rentals — a Boutique Event Rentals company specializing in vintage and custom Furniture and decor that caters to weddings, corporate events, showers, birthdays, and more.

Meet the Girls

The GATHER Events team consists of an incredible group of women along the west coast who strive to create the most memorable events they can. The team at GATHER LA  has almost a decade of experience planning weddings, corporate events, parties, editorial shoots, and product styling making the team a force to be reckoned with. They all looked summer-ready thanks to the hair and makeup team at Fiore Beauty.
