Charlotte’s Next Big Wedding Venue

Watch out, Charlotte – there’s a new venue in town, and we have a feeling this one is going to be good.

Located in the beautiful Wesley Heights neighborhood is Beau Monde’s newest hidden gem, The Ruth. Founded by Marysue Boyle, the Beau Monde brand strives to provide welcoming locations for life’s most memorable events. Site managers Katie Sipple, Anna Lee Schneider, and Shellie Hubbard are known to throw exceptional events by offering support and guidance to each of their couples during the planning process. They make our lives as planners so much easier, and we couldn’t be more excited to partner with them in the years to come.

Uniquely designed with the most intricate details, The Ruth is unlike any other Charlotte venue. It’s modern, it’s warm, it’s fresh, and it’s different. With beautiful indoor and outdoor spaces, it has a little bit for everyone. The staple moment of the entire space is undoubtedly their spacious, modern bar that guests can enjoy through the cocktail hour and reception. They’re even offering an in-house, exclusive bar membership for all of their past, present and future couples to meet, interact, and continue to enjoy the place they have or will one day say I do! 

As if this space doesn’t speak for itself, our team has loved designing the space for our upcoming Fall ‘22 and Spring ‘23 couples getting married at The Ruth. No two designs are the same, and we cannot wait to share more of these with you all very soon!
