If you’re looking for the perfect city venue in Charlotte, North Carolina, take a look at the Foundation for the Carolinas. 

Located in the heart of Uptown, the venue is in the ideal location for guests to easily walk back to their hotels or continue their night of fun. The Foundation for the Carolinas also sets the scene for some awesome pictures to take with your groom.

This venue was the first place my future husband and I visited. We only looked at one more venue before deciding that it perfectly fit our needs.

Our goal was to find a venue that was:

  • Great for pictures
  • Walkable for guests from our recommended hotels
  • Had unique features that would impress our guests
  • Reflected our personalities

You’ll notice that our pictures, done by the amazing Katelyn James, showed the venue was the perfect location for our portraits. The Foundation for the Carolinas is next the Hearst Tower and only feet away from awesome restaurants and bars. We recommended four hotels within half a mile of the venue so guests could choose their preferred accommodations as a locked rate.  As for unique features, the venue has both a living wall and an art gallery for guests to enjoy.

Unique Features

Although it’s easy for city venues to lose their earthy-appeal, but the Foundation for the Carolinas found a creative way to bring some green into their building. While the venue looks over the city, it a living wall provided an awesome backdrop for guests to take pictures.

Guests enter through an art gallery on the lower floor, which features artists such as Chuck Close. This ended up being one of my favorite spots. When all the guests were upstairs enjoying their cocktails, my new husband and I sat on a couch in the empty gallery for ten minutes just enjoying our first few minutes as man and wife alone. People would walk by Foundation and see us on the couch, cheering and yelling “congratulations” in true city fashion.

Recommendation

I would highly recommend the Foundations for the Carolinas as a wedding venue. I always envisioned I would be wearing my wedding dress in a field, getting pictures with grand landscapes. Instead, I had the perfect wedding, marrying my perfect guy, in the city I call my home.
