Merchant & Trade, Kimpton Tryon Park Wedding | Amy & Ken

Let me start this out with some truth: I am not a city girl. Not in the sense that I don’t love the city, I just have no clue how to navigate it. So when Chelsea of Charlotte Fete contacted me to see if I’d be interested in this little wedding, I pushed down all the doubt I had surrounding parking and one-way streets because I KNEW a winter wedding was just what I needed. Merchant and Trade is nestled above the Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel, and if you blink, you miss their valet instantly. It took me about 3 times around the block to finally understand how to get into their driveway, and when I did, admittedly – I was a bit embarrassed. “I’ve never parked valet before, so you’re gonna have to tell me how this works” I said. Their attendants humored me as I offered them the Chick-fil-a leftovers I had in my passenger seat before taking my ticket and heading inside. The front desk staff approached with wide smiles, and I desperately hoped they didn’t pick up the “fish out of water” experience I was having. Nope, definitely not a city girl. But alas, this last minute mini wedding was all completely worth my lack of urban-expertise, because once Amy and Ken welcomed me with big bear hugs, I truly felt like I was part of the gang. Every guest invited seemed to have known each other for decades, as they cried and held each other and celebrated this long-awaited union. In the end, Amy and Ken showed me what is most important about a wedding day: family, food, and some damn good city views. I think once you view their gallery, you’ll whole-heartedly agree.
