BLUSH Rave: Grace on Brevard!

Last month we visited the wonderful Andrea Hock at the Grace Event Center on Brevard in Uptown Charlotte, NC. First off, we would just like to say that the architecture alone is breath taking! The space by itself, without any decorations was beautiful and so unique! It offers more than the typical four white walled rooms. What used to be the A.M.E. Grace Zion Church is now one of Charlotte’s new premier events venues.

Inside, Andrea gave us a tour of the space as well as told us about all the different set ups that can be accommodated. The space can hold 150 at maximum capacity and can be set up for cocktails, a buffet style dinner or a sit down dinner. Andrea was kind enough to play a slideshow of some pictures from some of the beautiful events already held there, such as a 40th birthday party and several different sized weddings.

An extra feature of the space is that they can provide a tent outside adjacent to the building for a cocktail hour. We think this is so creative and unexpected in a city like Uptown.

We want to give a huge thank you to Andrea for taking time to meet with us and showing us around the Grace Event Center! It is truly a unique and traditional setting for a beautiful event!

GREAT IDEA: Excellent place to hold your Rehearsal Dinner!
