Our Charlotte Wedding Planner, Sarah Beth Thie, is here to share some insight on some of her favorite Uptown Charlotte Wedding Venues…

Charlotte Wedding Venue

Metropolitan. Chic. Dynamic.

The Charlotte, North Carolina skyline is one of my absolute favorites…and it’s not just because I live in this awesome city! Charlotte natives and transplants…am-I-right? I fall in love with this city more and more every day and I know so many of you feel the same way. Charlotte is a juxtaposition of modern yet traditional and chic yet classic–much like many of our fabulous WTTK clients. When venue scouting, many of our clients want to incorporate this uptown style and design into their most important day. We want to share some of our favorite uptown venues and wedding designs with you!

220 North Tryon at Foundation For The Carolinas

Fun Fact: Foundation For The Carolinas is one of the largest charitable community foundations in the United States and features an extensive art collection. As guests enter, they walk into the beautiful Knight Tier/Luski Gallery. The Silverman Pavilion and Kearney Solarium on the 4th floor are the perfect spots for the ceremony as well as dinner & dancing! The floor to ceiling glass windows create the perfect modern backdrop by day and night. This Charlotte wedding venue is also home to one of my favorite spots in uptown Charlotte: the vertical garden on the Rodgers Sculpture Terrace. The Charlotte skyline + a lush wall of greenery gets an A+ in our book. This garden wall, created by French environmental artist Patrick Blanc, is one of the many highlights for our couples (and their guests!).

Mint Museum Uptown

The Mint Museum Uptown is a private non-profit institution that houses the internationally renowned Craft+Design collection as well as other outstanding collections of American, contemporary, and European art. The modern architecture of this museum is a favorite of our brides who book this versatile venue. The museum offers some amazing spaces including the terrace, entryway, atrium, and Silverman Grand Room. The Level 5 Trustees Terrace is one of our favorites…it gives the grand room space a great outdoor option and we’re suckers for al fresco apps and cocktails! Oh, and the cityscape view is simply stunning. We had the opportunity to host an intimate wedding ceremony in the Carroll Entryway and it was the sweetest!

Founders Hall

Founders Hall 5

Founders Hall is a unique wedding venue located in the Bank of America Corporate Center, the tallest building in the city. For those clients looking for a large venue in the heart of uptown Charlotte, Founders Hall has you covered! The marble floors, granite fountain, and live trees are the perfect additions to the space. The vaulted glass atrium ceiling and large multifaceted windows at Founders Hall are amazing. One of our sweet couples snuck away some remarkable nighttime window shots (taken by Love Shutter) and they turned out incredible!

Our Charlotte Wedding Planning team is ready to serve you and help you find the perfect venue!!

CHEERS!

Looking for the perfect gift for your bridesmaids? The buzz is true…Kendra Scott has opened a Charlotte, NC store at Southpark Mall. Kendra Scott is an amazing jewelry designer whose company has grown tremendously but stays true to her founding philosophies of “Family, Fashion, & Philanthropy.” One of her favorite mottos is “Dream it! Live it! Love it!” and we here at We Tie The Knots could not agree more with those inspiring words!

I had the opportunity to meet with the lovely Kendra Scott-Charlotte Event Coordinator, Kelsea, who told me about all the fun things their stores have to offer. In particular, I am so excited to share the “Color Bar”with all of you beautiful and stylish brides! I attended their opening and fell in love with the store from the moment I walked up to the façade. The funky modern light fixtures and clean design grabbed my attention from the start. Upon walking in, the store was adorned with vibrant jewels and fresh blooms and I was then offered a delicious mimosa & sweet treat for my browsing…does it get much better than that? I decided to play around with the touch screen Color Bar and may have even designed a pair of earrings for myself!

The Color Bar offers a fun way to create unique and customized pieces for your bridal party depending on your wedding color palate and each individual’s style. There are numerous settings for earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings as well as a wide array of gorgeous stones to pick from. Stones range from bold and vibrant to neutral and soft palates and styles from simple and delicate to those that make quite the statement! The store now offers Color Bar parties for you to bring in your bridal party for a fun girls night out, sip champagne, and design jewelry that is unique to each person attending. The bride can either design the jewelry for her maids on her own or pick out her favorite settings, stones, and color palates to allow the bridesmaids to get a little creative! The jewelry piece you decide on is handmade within minutes for you to take home on the same day. If you don’t have one of these fabulous stores near you or are short on time, you can also design these jewelry pieces conveniently online.

Kendra Scott-Charlotte- we can’t wait to work with you at a Color BarParty soon! Brides-check them out, I promise your bridesmaids will be thrilled with their new sparkly jewelry…and what a fun excuse for some bubbly?

CHEERS!
