surprise proposal at the Grand Bohemian Charlotte, NC


I love sharing sneak peeks of gorgeous weddings at luxury North Carolina venues. But for this special post, I’m letting you in on a surprise proposal, too! (What do you think: was she expecting it? 😉) The Grand Bohemian Hotel Charlotte provides a spectacular romantic backdrop for proposals, engagement photos, and weddings. The artsy ambiance and unique colors make this venue stand out. Plus, they provide exceptional service for any event. It’s my go-to recommendation for couples who want an upscale urban vibe for their event and photos. Depending on the couple’s florals and attire, no two sessions or weddings are alike. This venue is really fun to play with for couples who want something a bit different and extra luxe.
