Why We Love Charlotte City Club
First of all, it's in Uptown Charlotte NC - so the opportunities for photographs utilizing the city abound! Second, the amenities and the staff are amazing and do a fantastic job catering to the bride and groom and the event making sure everything goes off seamlessly. Selfishly for us, they really go out of their way to make sure we have opportunities and liberties to perform our craft - and they feed us REAL food. That's big with me. We like being fed while working the night away.
