Tea Thyme // Tips for Elevating Your Wedding WeekendOctober 28, 2021
With multiple spaces for gathering and an onsite farmhouse with overnight accommodations, North Corner Haven is the perfect venue for a full wedding weekend! Learn more about the venue and one of the boss babes behind it below.
Q: Give me your best “30 second elevator pitch”. Tell us who you are!
A: Hi! I’m Catherine, I’m part entrepreneur, part planner, part shower singing flower fanatic with a flair for hospitality, and I love a good theme. I spend the lion’s share of my time operating and growing North Corner Haven with my wonderful team. The other half of my time is spent with friends or my incredible family, many of which were born and raised in the Charlotte community. I also love a good Netflix binge – mainly period pieces with stunning costumes and soundtracks.
Q: Why do you do what you do?
A: I love to bring people together, whether it’s personal or in business. Giving clients a carefree way to make memories is important to me.
Q: What is your favorite wedding day trend right now?
A: Micro! At North Corner Haven we have hosted about 20 Micro (we call them “Cherished”) weddings and it has been amazing. It’s a completely intimate experience and a very special time for families who are eager to celebrate. I’m thinking they will stick around!
Q: Why do you love North Corner Haven?
A: There are so many reasons I love the Farm but I think first and foremost it’s that our venue is rooted in nature, the beauty of the land and the tradition of community. We strive to offer an authentic place for all of our guests to enjoy life. It’s also an incredible honor to work closely with my family and team in a place that’s so personal to us.
Q: What trends do you think we’ll see in the next year?
A: I think we will see more color! Greenery has been such a big trend and I’m excited to see people play into that and add color with other florals throughout their design. I also love a patterned table linen for a seated dinner – it’s a great opportunity to show personality.
Q: What tip do you have for couples on their wedding day?
A: Don’t sweat the small stuff. When it comes to the wedding day – all you need to do is enjoy and let your team handle anything that may pop up, no matter how big or small. Without sounding harsh, let the pros take it from there!!
Q: Favorite wedding color currently?
A: It’s Fall in the South! I love the rich reds, yellows and purples – basically anything found in nature.
Q: Beach or mountains?
A: Ugh! This is tough given that NC and SC are so well positioned for both. I will say there’s something about the water and waves that make me a beach girl…
Q: Your favorite non-alcoholic and alcoholic drink?
A: Non Alcohol Drink is a classic half and half tea, with a lemon slice. My Favorite alcoholic drink is currently a Tequila Mule with my favorite Hot Blenheim Gingerale. I just served it as a specialty drink at my twin sister’s engagement party and it was a huge hit!
Q: Your best day off is spent doing:
A: When working in hospitality sometimes it’s nice to be the guest for a change! I love to go out to a fun dinner with friends, see live music or enjoy a lazy morning movie on my couch.
