The Collector's Room by Beau Monde
Three weeks before my Wedding I received terrible news that my venue had closed down permanently due to a Bankruptcy. I was overwhelmed, stressed, sad, mad - just all the emotions you could possibly feel. I didn't know HOW I was going to find a venue that I liked or even LOVED that could compare to my former Venue until I walked into The Collector's Room. Katie greeted me upon entry with the biggest and sincere smile and you could tell she felt my pain in her eyes. Needless to say, I BOOKED the venue. Not just because it was absolutely beautiful, but because of the customer service I received from the minute my Mom and I walked through the door. Katie was so easy to talk to - she NEVER missed an email and was there with me literally every step of the way to answer any questions I needed, and when you're a Bride that's what you look for! If you want a unique space that's NOT cookie cutter with exceptional service then this is the place for you! Don't hesitate :)
Okay, give me a minute to brag on this place... I'm a wedding planner, and I recently started working with The Collector's Room when one of my 2021 couples booked there. This venue is amazing! If you're looking for something different than the standard barn or ballroom, this is the place for you. I love the intricate details here, but also the blank canvas feel that you can literally do ANYTHING with the space. I also have to mention, Katie has been so incredibly kind and helpful throughout this entire process. If you're looking for a beautiful spot with incredible service, this is the one!
Coordinated two short turnaround events with Katie at The Collectors Room and she was a pleasure to work with and the space is super versatile. We needed to plan a COVID-safe event and she took charge on making sure all distancing was maintained by measuring out tables, taping walkways, etc. and filled the extra space very nicely so the room did not feel empty. She was the perfect balance of laid back and detailed. The space really can be transformed to meet many purposes!
We hosted our proposal/engagement party at The Collector's Room in Southend, Charlotte. From beginning to end, Katie was AMAZING to work with! The venue is absolutely STUNNING and the small details make it even better! We hope to host another event here in the near future. I can not recommend The Collector's Room and Katie enough! Thank you for all you did to make my daughter's engagement party dreams come true. (June 2020)
Upon first meeting Mary Sue Boyle, the owner, I fell in love with her warm heart and more than accommodating personality. She was more than attentive in ensuring that I had all of the information I needed to close the deal with her. She made the decision process so easy that I did not really check anywhere else. Upon entering the space I could see it transformable into a magical space. They took care of the cocktails (specialty cocktails), in house bartender, and a DJ as well as set up for the catered food and all of the decorations for a REALLY great value price. I felt like a VIP at my own event the way they took care of EVERY detail. Ben was a gracious bartender and Katie was a great assistant to Mary Sue during the evening ensuring my guests and I were comfortable and had everything we needed. EVERYTHING. The communication was fantastic as I only had 2 weeks to plan the entire event. I spent zero time doing anything but curating the guest list and telling Mary Sue the vendors I wanted to work with for additional food and decorations. The ownership CARES about their clients. This is a hidden gem in South End---and is attached to a gorgeous art gallery so it not only adds square footage to the space, but a cool space for guests to view and appreciate art. Their relationships with other vendors shows how they take care of people they work with as well---they have one of the best DJ's in Charlotte, as I discovered DJ Spontaneous and I barely had a one time email exchange to give him the vibe I wanted. HE NAILED IT and everyone there is super professional. The night exceeded my expectations and was MAGICAL.
