One of the perks of our jobs is that we get to visit with the vendors and venues in the area. This past week, Rachael and I took a drive down to Charlotte to meet with Kim Werner at the Ritz Carlton. The Ritz, which opened in 2009, is stunning! Kim took us on a tour of the hotel - I think I said “this is so amazing” at least 10 times before trying to think of other adjectives that would accurately describe it. If you’re looking of a destination wedding - but don’t want to travel far - give Kim a call!
Also not to miss while you are there is the spa – Rachael and I did not want to leave. It is up on one of the top floors so just about every room has stunning views of downtown Charlotte. There’s an exercise area up there that most gyms would be jealous of and up one more level is the indoor pool. It’s the perfect urban oasis. If that’s not enough of a reason to go, Kim took us to lunch at their BLT Steak restaurant, which as their website claims “has redefined steakhouse dining with its modern décor and infusion of classic French elements….” The food is delicious – even for two vegetarians!
