“Vendors are afraid of the unknown; we want to change
that so we can reveal the positive effect that working as a community can have
on the wedding industry.”
-Vinny Esposito, Co-Owner of Split Second Sound
Split Second Sound has always
been an advocate of promoting other professionals within Charlotte’s wedding
and event industry. After 13 years, we decided to take this dedication to
another level and the Charlotte Wedding Insider organization was born in 2012.
Through CWI’s bi-monthly bridal panels, brides and grooms are able to learn
about planning their big day from Charlotte’s top wedding professionals while
the anonymous vendors on the panel are able to hear from the market’s current
brides and grooms. At the same time, CWI hosts seminars and educational
resources for vendors to understand the wedding industry and running their
Split Second Sound is
confident in the mission built by Charlotte Wedding Insider and is excited
about continuing to assist in the growth and education of the wedding industry.
By bringing vendors and clients together, we continue to learn from each other
as well as our clients.

Hitting a Home Run for your Next Event
Talk about a meeting spot! The breathtaking
views from the Charlotte Knights BB&T BallPark provide an amazing location
for your next corporate or private event.
Boasting record attendance this season for the
Knights (the highest in the league too), there’s no question that the park is a
new hub for social gatherings and sports fanatics alike. The location
offers several different areas to host a variety of events. Including the full
ballpark (which can hold up to 10,000), the venue provides some seriously
beautiful spots for a meeting, party, conference or other events.
Don’t think you need to fill the entire stadium
though? Smaller areas like the Pepsi Party Terrace or one of the private
Luxury Suites allow for groups between 25 and 30 people. One of our favorite
spots, the Budweiser Home Plate Club, is perfect for a cocktail reception. With
access to the full bar and optional catering, this enclosed area is top of the
line. Throw a DJ in the mix and this would make an awesome party spot as well!
If you haven’t made it out to BB&T BallPark
yet (or even if you have!) seriously consider hosting your next event or
corporate event here. Don’t forget to invite Homer!

of your event. If venue is at the top, then make sure you decide on the
location before selecting your date. You’d be heartbroken if your top-choice
