An Elegant Outdoor Retreat
The Ballantyne Hotel Wedding Garden
The Ballantyne Hotel has long been a destination for corporate events and weddings in the Charlotte Metro area and beyond. In addition to the hotel, The Ballantyne also offers resort-style amenities, such as a spa, golf and dining. In keeping with the hotel’s standard of excellence; management staff felt that a face lift was needed for their outdoor gathering space. Mr. Bissell commented that “there was no place for guests to go outside and read a book”.
The concept was to create a setting that would be an outdoor retreat and elegant garden for weddings. The garden is nestled between the hotel dining terrace and the 18th hole of the golf course. Many of the plantings and architecture of the garden are crafted in the traditional Charleston Style, with arbor covered seating, neatly trimmed boxwoods hedges and pops of color throughout the season. This setting provides ample opportunities for memorable wedding photos with the expanse of manicured golf course greens as a back drop. *Photo credit: Bissell
