Leave it to Swann Lake Stables to make all of your magical, cozy, luxurious, and sophisticated wedding dreams come true. This stunning Birmingham wedding venue is exactly what you are looking for if you really want a quiet, more laid back wedding in the country with the convenience of city amenities. Swann Lake Stables was built in 2004 by the current owners, and features a luxuriously stunning barn, outdoor fireplace, and acres of grounds for all of the wonderful photo needs.
I could honestly write so many posts about why this venue is one of the greatest Birmingham has to offer, but I will stick to the top 5 for now!
1. Incredible staff
When it comes to choosing your wedding venue, the people you choose to surround yourself with can make all the difference in the world. Whether you are considering your venue, photographer, videographer, florist, or planner, knowing that your vendors will be there for you on your wedding day and care for your every need before their own brings such comfort. It is part of the package when you invest in your vendors! The staff of Swann Lake Stables has done an incredible job time and time again of truly serving their couples and putting their needs first. Not only will you have clear communication throughout the whole process, but also you will have such kind people there with you on your wedding day when you choose Swann Lake Stables as your venue.
2. Ceremony options
Oftentimes, wedding venues are pretty limited to where you can choose to host your ceremony on site. Not with Swann Lake Stables! At this incredible venue (how often will I use that word in this post?!), you have several options for where to have your wedding ceremony. If you love the look of a cozy fireplace with billowing florals, they have the perfect luxurious fireplace ready for you. If you would like to have a riverside ceremony, there is a beautiful, large, rock that juts out onto the river where you can have the wedding ceremony of your dreams. In addition to these, the grounds next to the barn are stunning, and feature lovely, huge trees that look perfect in every season. This would be a great option if you want that fairytale, magical woodsy ceremony look with a floral arch or cross alter.
If wedding photography is on your priority list, the location you choose for your wedding can be a night and day difference. With Swann Lake Stables, gorgeous wedding photos are inevitable. Not only do you have so many different spots that are, simply put, stunning, (such as the river, the magical trees, and the pastures) but this wedding venue honestly looks immaculate no matter the season of your big day. I would highly recommend Swann Lake Stables if you want good photos for your wedding day!
4. Bridal aesthetic
We all know that choosing your wedding venue can have a lot to do with the direction you take for your wedding day theme and aesthetic. Sometimes it can be hard to find a venue that is accommodating of all styles, and you may be thinking that it is really impossible to find such a venue. But let me tell you, I have seen so many different weddings here and they are all incredible. Whether you are planning a laid back and simple wedding, a luxurious and sophisticated wedding, or something in between, Swann Lake Stables is the perfect venue for you.
Something that a lot of couples have to consider is, where is the location of the venue? Is it easy to find? If you have out of town guests coming, it is especially important to make sure that the venue is easy to find if they are not familiar with your town or city. Swann Lake Stables is located conveniently in Cahaba Heights, which is just outside of Birmingham, AL. Hotels, restaurants, and shopping are all located within 10 minutes from the venue, all while the venue still feels like you are on a retreat in the most quiet getaway.
