Events such as the upcoming Wedding Showcase on Feb. 24, 12-5 p.m., at Daniel Stowe Botanical Garden showcase some of Belmont’s – and entire Charlotte region’s – most elite vendors. For brides, grooms and even eager bridal party members, it’s a perfect opportunity to discover inspiration, take in new trends, book services and discuss details – all while sipping champagne. Admission is free for the engaged at this annual Garden event. Said Ted Hall, president of the Montcross Area Chamber of Commerce in Belmont, “Our city showcases a southern charm that you cannot find other places. There are so many unique, wonderful establishments that can help any bride and groom make monumental memories. We are lucky to have an abundance of business owners who go above and beyond to make those wedding memories special.”
