We had a great experience with this venue. There was plenty of space for a dance floor, seated tables, and a food buffet with different stations. The service was excellent - the bartenders, station attendants, etc really stood out. Our wedding guests loved the food! Would definitely recommend this venue for anyone looking in Charlotte.

Founders Hall is an amazing deal for Uptown Charlotte! Picking a wedding venue was difficult for my husband and I because we had such a big wedding (about 300 guests). Founders Hall was the perfect space because it could actually fit us, was well within our budget, and really, was all-inclusive. Renting out the space comes with tables, linens, silverware, cushioned chivari chairs, a baby grand piano, overhead colored- lighting, and much more. Aria Tuscan Grill is the preferred vendor as you must spend $10K with them before bringing in external vendors, but that was easy to do with our guest size. The actual rental fee was about 1/4 that of anything you'll be able to find in Uptown Charlotte - super super reasonable. The space itself was gorgeous and really, didn't need much to decorate it! The wedding planner associated with Founders Hall/Aria, Jenny, is amazing to work with - she's very responsive and really has so much knowledge about the wedding industry. We had the perfect wedding day!
