    • Wedding: September 2015 - Country Club

    I’m completely biased as I just visited my future in-laws over Easter and saw the Lewis Gitner Botanical Garden last weekend, it was SO breathtaking. They had a wedding there the night before and I even said to my FMIL “If it weren’t for the fact that you two (FMIL & FFIL) were the only ones in VA this place would be my dream venue!” I couldn’t get over the dogwoods. I was so in love!

    The Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens are absolutely gorgeous!  I actually looked into having our wedding there, but with transportation, rentals, catering, etc., it was just out of our budget.

    I picked 5 because I love love LOVE botanical gardens and the romantic feel it gives to a wedding. I Also liked 6 for the glamour it can provide.

    I’m in Charlotte and have researched and visited all but the first venue you listed (And many others too). Feel free to reach out with any questions you might have. I will say that the Foundation of the Carolina’s and the Mint Museum have a very modern feel to them (they both have lots of modern art in them). The pics you posted are misleading as in the beautuful white piping and drape is not included and very pricey (have to rent through lighting or rental agency). The room itself is very basic which is good because you can dress it up how you like it, but may be bad on the wallet. They both have a nice outdoor balcony area with a great skyline view. FOC is actually constructing a glass enclosure right now over their balcony. DSbG is beautiful and there are lots of areas in the garden to choose from. I guess it depends on the style you want to go for. They are all beautiful and I think you’d have a great experience at either 🙂
