Alissa Lawton of Gather Events

Alissa Lawton of Gather Events can be found up and down the west coast planning and designing amazing weddings. Her designs never disappoint and the versatility of her work is impressive. She has an eye for scale, color, and a desire to provide the very best experience for her clients. We just love her! And if planning and designing your wedding isn’t enough she also designs the most beautiful stationary. 

We first met Alissa during a tour of our warehouse, it quickly turned into drinks and apps at a nearby restaurant where she dropped some serious insider knowledge on us newbies. From then on she has been a big supporter of our business and we appreciate so much her genuine sharing nature.

Alissa’s design came to us in a perfectly designed mood board. We would expect nothing less from a planner of her caliber. The design came to life on shoot day with beautiful floras and a muted classic tone. It couldn’t be more perfect. We asked Alissa a few questions about her lounge and this is what she had to say:

What style would you call your lounge? Let’s go with – organic chic

What was your inspiration? earthy tones, soft colors – creating an inviting, comfortable and elegant setting with friends

Describe your personal style? My personal style would best be described as a mix of modern and rustic elements, working in tandem to create a timeless space. I love taking natural inspiration from the local beauty we have and mixing wood, metals and texture to create a really luscious and beautiful space. Less is often more and I enjoy focusing on really beautiful pieces and allowing them to shine in their own light without being overwhelmed.

How would you use this lounge? This lounge is a perfect opportunity for a girls night. Comfortable and inviting with a feminine vibe, the lounge is paired perfectly with a good group of friends and a chilled bottle of rose. 😉

What is your favorite piece? This is hard! I love all of the pieces in it! I definitely have a major crush on that couch though. It is the perfect, neutral element that can be paired with so many different pieces really seamlessly. I love the versatility of it! It was really fun to incorporate wood, metal and acylic pieces together with it.

When it comes to designing events, our inspiration always flows from our couples and the natural beauty of the setting they choose. Our goal is for their guests to leave feeling like the event just absolutely felt like our couple in every aspect. From the tablescape to each celebratory element, we design in a way that brings their personalities to life through each sensory outlet and experience. With this lounge, I wanted to design in the same capacity. By choosing pieces that represented both Wander’s incredible collection and beautiful earthy elements, I think we came up with something unexpected and really special. It was so much fun and I am so grateful for the opportunity!
