Wedding Wednesday Spotlight
Our shining vendor of the week is Nathan Hoffman of Charlotte City Club!
As the leading DJ company in the Charlotte and surrounding areas, we have the opportunity to visit many amazing venues. One of our favorites is Charlotte City Club. One might assume it is one of our favorites because of the Club’s unparalleled views but that only adds to our experience. We have the pleasure of working with Nathan, The Director of Private Events. Nathan and his staff make our job at the City Club much more pleasurable. Let me tell you a little more about The City Club and the man behind the private events!
Charlotte City Club is located 31 floors above the city. Most people have no idea they are walking past this private club when they are uptown. Nearly every room holds a breathtaking
view of the Queen City. As a member of the City Club, you are able to utilize the facility to entertain clients or strictly pleasure. The Club is ideal for the business traveler because with your membership, you are able to connect with an array of clubs,
yacht clubs and country clubs around the world. Although this might seem impossible to reserve as the venue for your wedding, our friend Nathan has a way to help you out. If you do not know a member, he will arrange for you to participate in a Short-term Associate
Membership. This is a membership at a reduced fee. The cost of the membership will be taken out of the price of the booking fee, which makes this very cost efficient.
Nathan’s professionalism, experience and hard work ensure that any type of event held at the Club will be delivered beyond expectations. That mentality is what he attributes to his success. The friendship that has developed between Vinny, Diane and Nathan has a lot to do with the similarities in the way they run a business and develop relationships. Relationships are incredibly important to both, but they realize something most people do not. It is not just about good service and meeting people; it is about building and maintaining positive relationships – going above and beyond. Vinny had the privilege of DJing Nathan’s daughter’s wedding a year and a half ago!
Nathan is not an amateur in the industry. He lived in Wrightsville Beach for over 20 years, where he owned and ran multiple restaurants. Eleven years ago, he decided to give up the restaurants and move to Charlotte where he began his role at the City Club. Nathan is in charge of a couple hundred events a month and over 50 weddings a year. We have the pleasure of DJing quite a few of those weddings. This has curated a relationship that is special to Vinny and Diane but also our DJ’s. Many of our DJ’s have worked with Nathan and all of them sing his praises. Nathan is known for the relationships he has built and created, not only with Split Second but with other vendors and clients. Throughout those years, he has had the pleasure of creating relationships with clients and their families that he still runs into. It is safe to say that Nathan loves his job. On his days off, you will likely find him popping into the Club. His commute is not a bad one at after all since he lives across the street.
Nathan has overseen over 440 weddings and with each wedding, he holds special memories. From a bride in her designer dress having the groomsmen cut the bottom off because it was bothering her to mothers asking him to stop their sons from getting married and calming them down with his touching and loving attitude. Nathan is perfectly equipped to handle and adjust to situations that arise. His ability to hold himself together in high stress situations is incredible. He spends time to be completely prepared, so he can keep the stress level at a minimum. If you know Nathan, you will also know that he is a perfect testament to “laughing along the way”. He says life is too short not to laugh, and you can always spot him with his Starbucks coffee in hand.
As always, we look forward to working with Nathan and his staff while DJing with the best backdrop around! If you are interested in reserving the City Club for your next event, reach out to Nathan on LinkedIn or find more information on www.charlottecityclub.com.
