When it comes to Alabama barn wedding venues, you want to make sure that the aesthetic is not too rustic or “broken down.” It can be hard to find a barn wedding venue that is classy, elegant, but still has a touch of that perfect southern charm you find from barns and stables. In this post, I would love to highlight some of my favorite Alabama barn wedding venues that have done an amazing job at creating an elegant space for you to host your wedding, without making it too rustic or country.
1. Oak Meadow Event Center
This amazing Alabama barn wedding venue is the perfect white farmhouse venue for you and your fiance. They truly thought of everything when it comes to good photos of a barn…all white!! This creates such a clean and natural look for all of your wedding day photos. Some barns are super dark which makes it difficult to get those natural looking photos that you love so much. I have written a post that goes in depth on this venue, so click HERE to read more about it!
2. Swann Lake Stables
Located just outside of Birmingham, this Alabama barn wedding venue is the perfect place to have your cozy outdoor wedding. With a lovely patio, romantic outdoor fireplace, access to riverside photos, perfect woodsy trees, and of course the amazing barn. What makes this more rustic barn incredible is that there are lots of windows to allow natural light in. So if you have your wedding photos done while the sun is still fairly bright, the light allows for amazing photos both outside and inside the barn! Click HERE to learn more about Swann Lake Stables!
3. Hamilton Place and Pursell Farms
Look no further for an Alabama barn wedding venue than this. Hamilton Place is the epitome of the words high-end, classy, and sophisticated. While they have a very clean and natural style, the grounds are always perfectly tended to, and they have several options for where to host your ceremony and reception, including a crisp white barn. Seriously, the grounds of this estate property are to die for, and even include a mountain-top view! What more could you ask for when searching for a wedding venue?
4. Russell Lands on Lake Martin
Are you trying to choose between a lakeside wedding, a barn wedding, or a woodsy natural wedding? This Alabama barn wedding venue is the perfect place for you. Not only are there immaculate views, and stunning property for all of your photos, but this venue makes your choice so much easier so that you don’t miss out on anything. They truly have it all!
5. Rockhurst Farm
This Alabama barn wedding venue couldn’t be more perfect if you are looking to have a peaceful and quiet wedding day. While it is central to convenient places, it also is tucked away from busy streets and roads, and offers the best location for getting ready, ceremony, and reception spaces. While there are several places to choose to have your ceremony at this Alabama barn wedding venue, the most popular would be in front of their giant oak tree. Covered in moss, this tree is the definition of glowing perfection. If ceremony photos are important to you, this spot is definitely the way to go!
