FFTC was such a beautiful wedding venue! We had our ceremony and reception there and the space flows perfectly from one to the other. Our guests couldn't stop raving about how gorgeous the venue was. FFTC also had the most professional and responsive staff that we encountered in our venue search. They were supportive as we tried to choose a venue and they continued to respond to our questions promptly once we booked them. Everything about the venue, from the space to the staff, contributed to the joyous celebration. Thanks to everyone at the FFTC for making our wedding fun and stress-free!

We were so thrilled to have our wedding at Foundation For The Carolinas and could not have asked for a more beautiful venue (we also lucked out and had the most beautiful day in February – and were able to use the outdoor terraces unexpectedly!). The space was gorgeous and it was a huge benefit that most of our vendors had worked there frequently, so we felt confident that everyone would know what they were doing. We experienced a few hiccups at the wedding (confusion about the bar serving liquor, a holding space for the bridal party had been changed without any advance notice) but everything was corrected smoothly and none of our guests knew about the issues. If you go with FFTC, I would recommend hiring a wedding coordinator as well (Libby Sarver from Details Wedding Planning is amazing!) to help with the logistics and to be the go-between for your vendors and the venue. I also feel that, considering everything that is included in the rental cost and that the space is so beautiful it requires very little décor, the rental cost is reasonable and worth it. Overall, I wouldn’t have wanted to have my wedding be anywhere else and was so happy with the experience.

Wow! Such a beautiful venue! I'm so glad my husband and I went with this venue. We chose this venue for these reasons. 1) Pricing - we felt the value of the venue was well priced. Compared to the other venues we were looking at, we looked at their all in pricing and it was much more competitive for the area which included security, chivalric chairs, tables, set up, plannorams, and your wedding is the only one that day depending on what you book. 2) These venue is just gorgeous, its made for weddings. The green wall on the terrace is lush and adds such a nice contrast for amazing backdrop pictures. 3) Staff and service was amazing and so professional. Working with them to help create a layout for my ceremony and reception, this was a nice differentiator for this venue. 4) Logisitcs and their coordination with our event folks was so professional and everything went smoothly that day. THe only dings I have to say is that the alcohol is a bit strict (4 hrs) which I understand because of the liability of the institution and is not that bad looking back. Other than that, if you are looking for elegant, modern, beautiful in Charlotte uptown, this is the venue. Not enough beautiful things to say about this venue!
One of my most favorite wedding venues that I've ever photographed. Lovely place, lovely staff, lovely vendors to work with. We love traveling to Charlotte to photograph weddings here!
