David and Jean Gechter
David A and Jean Gechter are the owners and operators of Hollow Hill Event Center – and David is the creator, architect and contractor of the facility.
When you first meet David and Jean and hear them talk about “their” brides and “their” weddings you would think they were old hands at running a wedding venue. But, believe it or not, before 2010 they hardly knew the meaning of the word “venue!” However, it was only natural they would be good at running a venue given their people and organizational skills.
Mary is the super dedicated and hard-working landscaper and artist extraordinaire at Hollow Hill. Her background in graphic and art design translates well to the creation of the gardens and landscapes of Hollow Hill. She earned her degree in Commercial Art & Advertising and worked with several design and print companies throughout Waco before moving, along with her husband and children, to Azle, Texas. Mary’s artistry is found throughout Hollow Hill in the form of manicured gardens and expertly planned landscaping, as well as signs, pathways, stones and pavers. She is one of the reasons Hollow Hill is one of the most unique Fort Worth wedding venues.
Mary and her husband Gary have been married for 37 years, and have 3 grown children, and 7 grandchildren.
Bob joined Hollow Hill in February 2015 as the General Manager. He is a graduate of North Texas University. Bob is married and has two beautiful daughters. Before coming to work for Hollow Hill, Bob worked for Alford Media Services in Coppell, TX. He also worked for George Strait as Stage Manager and George’s guitar tech. Accustomed to large scale productions, he knows how to make any sized event happen without a hitch, which comes in handy as the general manager of the most unique Fort Worth wedding venues.
Bob has a delightful personality and it really shows when taking brides-to-be and other visitors on a site tour of Hollow Hill Farm. If you have not had the pleasure of meeting Bob and experiencing Hollow Hill in person, schedule a visit now!
Assistant General Manager
Michelle is the backbone of our management team! A graduate of Texas A & M and Azle High School, Michelle is married to our nephew David L. Gechter and they have one daughter.
When we decided to have a business I realized that I needed help in the management department. And I immediately thought of Michelle. She has an excellent business sense and she has helped us create our contracts and policies and other documents. We knew we needed a filing system so we bought the software and Michelle mastered it.
Michelle is usually the person you will talk to if you call during the week. She responds to first inquiries, schedules your site tours and visits – and she makes sure you get the correct paperwork! She also answers your questions and helps you solve your problems as you plan your wedding or special event.
Michelle is also head of our financial department. She sends your invoices and keeps track of your account from the day you book until after your wedding and your refund has been mailed.
Responsible, dependable, positive and pleasant – Michelle is an indispensable member of Hollow Hill.
