Elegant “I Do’s” at Tryon Park
Andrea and Guelord both grew up in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Andrea in the capital, Kinshasa, and Guelord in Lubumbashi, and it was a little bit of home that brought the couple together in Charlotte. “We attended the same church but never talked. One day, Guelord reached out to me on Facebook to ask me if I could teach him Swahili. We agreed to meet on June 30th 2015 for our first lesson and we have been inseparable since that day.”When it came time to start the wedding planning process, it was Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel’s beautiful Rhapsody Ballroom that first captured the couple’s attention and worked well with the elegant theme they had in mind. Andrea and Guelord made excellent use of Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel’s collection of event spaces, allowing them to host every part of their special day at the hotel. From a rehearsal dinner at Angeline’s restaurant to the ceremony in the Medley Ballroom, the cocktail hour in the Ithaca Room and the reception in the Rhapsody Ballroom, the hotel was the perfect place to start their happily ever after.
