Local Venue: The Broadcast Group

I had the pleasure of meeting with Elizabeth from The Broadcast Group in Fort Mill, SC. The Broadcast Group is a full-service media and event company that has event rooms that range from 750 sq ft to 22,000 sq ft. All of the event spaces are very unique and with the Broadcast Group's expertise in staging and lighting you will be able create a WOW event!

My favorite space there is the front foyer that just exudes modern and glamour. The space has so much potential for great little details. The picture above does not do the space justice. That being said I have pulled together a few pictures that were inspired by this awesome room.

Be Inspired: Southern Charm's been a year since I moved to the Charlotte area (Huntersville to be exact) and I absolutely love the "Queen City"! It's not like Detroit or New York City my old stomping grounds, but I love it all the same. Charlotte is a charming southern city with a metropolitan feel.

During my time here in Charlotte it has inspired new thoughts, new desires and new loves. Who would have thought "sweet tea", "shrimp and grits" and "brisket". Mmmm! I love brisket!

Here are a few pictures of this charming southern city taken by some of Charlotte's top wedding photographers.

Charlotte is such a great place to get married! There are so many unique sites and venues.

Charlotte Hot Spots - aloft Hotel

Charlotte is a great city and has tons of fabulous venues for weddings and parties! The swanky aloft Hotel (a vision of W Hotels) at the Epicenter is such an amazing place. The modern and stylish decor and deign of the hotel lobby and their WXYZ Bar takes me back to my years living in New York City.

Their contemporary styled rooms are great for out of town guests!

You definitely have to check-out the space it's great for small private parties.

Here are some pictures taken by Dawn of Rooftop Studios at the Charlotte Wedding and Event Professionals Networking Group event at aloft Hotel hosted by yours truly, StylePerfect Weddings and Events! The event featured a panel discussion with some of Charlotte's finest caterers.

FYI - The lobby is open to the public and is a great pre or post party hang-out spot. :-)
