The Grand on Foster is on 170 North Foster Street in Dothan, AL and offers a unique venue sure to “wow” your guests. Featuring a chic industrial vibe (more on that soon), the space brings old-world charm to every wedding. Since 2010, the space welcomes weddings of all sizes, with brides and grooms choosing the venue due to its impeccable service and wealth of customization options.
But that’s not all there is to love about The Grand on Foster. I’m going to explore the venue, the chic and industrial vibe, all of the service options and the numerous event spaces on site to choose from.
Grand on Foster is an exceptional venue that’s beautifully designed. It’s almost impossible to take a bad photo here, with so many unique and exciting elements inside and outside. If you’re not already in love with Grand on Foster, here are three reasons to swoon.
The Grand on Foster’s industrial-chic vibe is perfect for photos. Brick accent walls play off ornate gold-framed mirrors and elegant chandeliers for unforgettable pictures in the reception area. Cut the cake in front of the gorgeous stained-glass window and dance the night away on the spacious dance floor. The entire reception space has just the right lighting for posed and candid photos.
These same design elements carry into the ceremony site, where exposed beams add to the drama and the draped curtains create a romantic, ethereal space. Ceremony photos are breathtaking, especially under the hanging chandelier.
The parlor area is ideal for pre-ceremony pictures and is elegant in every way. Gold leaf mirrors, comfortable seats and a Persian rug make you feel right at home. There’s plenty of room for everyone in the bridal party and your photographer (that’s me!).
The interior is impressive, but the courtyard is where you’ll take truly magical photos. The fountain and greenery against the rustic brick walls make for some dreamy photos. There are plenty of archways and secret passages to sneak off to and get some unique shots of the bride and groom.
No one wants a stressful wedding, right? Of course not. The Grand on Foster has rave reviews from newlyweds that loved the entire experience from start to finish. First and foremost, the wedding coordinator is there to help you and is attentive to the following details:
