Set the stage for a lifetime of wedded bliss by taking your vows at Charlotte’s Ritz-Carlton in North Carolina. With expert guidance from the hotel’s wedding specialists, new couples bring their dreams to life in settings ranging from an intimate backdrop, to a lavish ballroom, or an open-aired space. This premier hotel has everything you would want, offering an impressive Design Studio where couples choose each wedding detail for their big day.
Start by choosing your venue. Of your three choices, the Great Room is perfect for smaller, more intimate celebrations. This room has spectacular floor-to-ceiling windows providing impressive city views. For a bigger crowd, their wonderfully decorated ballroom holds up to 450, giving guests plenty of room to boogie down on a dance floor with room for a live band. In a multi-floor glass and steel setting, their Urban Garden is a visual stunner. This large, airy space offers plenty of natural light, giving you the feeling of the outdoors. But, no need to worry about rain when you choose this venue, it has a glass roof.
Wedding Design Studio
Inside their impressive Design Studio, newlyweds meet with wedding specialists who guide them through every detail. No need to scroll through online photos or try to visualize by listening to someone describing glassware, china, and linens. Your wedding décor will come to life right before your eyes. This studio has real-life reception tables set up for your viewing. There is also a room filled with linen, chairs, and charger choices where you can play around to your heart’s content. Whatever your personal style may be, Ritz-Carlton has it in their design studio.
Another room in the Design Studio is lined with life-sized wedding cakes. Your design choices range from traditional to romantic to Avant-Garde. You can work with The Bar Cocoa Pastry Team to create your wedding cake dedicated to your own personal style. Their signature cake flavors cater to your every craving – Red Velvet, Lemon Zinger, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and so many more unique flavors.
Happy life events are almost always celebrated with an outstanding meal. The talented Ritz-Carlton culinary team has well-crafted menus that will give your guests plenty to rave about. Whether its Butler served hors d’oeuvres, plated dinners, or buffet receptions, you can expect every detail will be carefully planned and well executed.
The Luxurious Spa
The exquisite spa aims to be a relaxation haven before the big moment. Plan a spa day for the bridal party and include your mom and mother-in-law. Book the signature manicure and pedicure and give these important women a good dose of pampering. For you, let wedding jitters melt away by relaxing by the indoor pool or lounging in the Salt Room.
Beams of natural light fill the well-appointed guest rooms. Contemporary design and plush furnishings provide your wedding guests a very comfortable stay during your wedding weekend. Book a suite for your parents, so they will be able to entertain guests. Depending on the wedding package chosen, newlyweds can receive a complimentary bridal suite for two nights and rose petal turndown on wedding night.
Don’t just dream of having your wedding in Uptown Charlotte make the most important day of your life a reality at the Ritz-Carlton.
