Y’all! I could not have asked for a better venue! The new owner, Cindy and her family, were the most incredible hosts! They took ownership half way through our contract a couple months before our wedding and the transition could not have been smoother! They honored the contract we signed with the previous owner and made sure the remainder of the process was as fun as possible! They were so loving to my entire family and welcomed them into their personal home with open arms. The venue, view, crew, and owners were out of this world!!!

Wow! Literally all I can say is wow. This property is absolutely stunning, and the new owners are amazing! Cyndi and mike ensured my day flawless, and they went the extra mile throughout my entire planning process. They suggested the best vendors I could have ever found, and I received so many compliments on how beautiful my wedding was because champagne manor was the perfect backdrop. I highly recommend this venue to any and all brides. There is not a single thing I would change! As soon as you tour the venue you will see how perfect it is, and the bridal suite will give you chills when you first see it!

New owners were fantastic to work with!
Venue is beautiful, Cyndy and her team are patient and clearly cared about our experience. Cyndy paid very close attention to all the little details! I highly recommend for any event!

Champagne Manor is stunning and offers a gorgeous backdrop for weddings.  (with owners who really care about the client’s experience.) As a Charlotte wedding photographer,  I love being able to work at the manor for its endless photographic opportunities and the laid-back couples who elect to have elegant outdoor weddings.  Very unique venue with nothing similar in the area!

Omg absolutely love Cyndy and Mike!! They went over and beyond to make our day the absolute best!! Our families loved them as well! They were just so sweet and extremely helpful!! We wish we could renew our vows now just so we could have another event there!!

Most beautiful venue ever! I picked this place solely on pictures and the pictures did not do it justice! It was PERFECT! The new owners are so welcoming and accommodating! I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
