Just outside of Gadsden, Wills Creek Winery is a vineyard in Attalla, Alabama, offering fantastic wines, wine festivals, and weddings. Walking through the pecan trees, across acres of pristine greenery and glancing up at the mountains makes the vineyard a magical place for a wedding. Not to mention that it’s a wonderful space to take romantic, once-in-a-lifetime wedding photos that will stand the test of time. In this post, I am going to explore this winery with you to show you how it is a lovely choice for anyone saying “I do” in or near Attalla.
Wills Creek offers a space that any bride and groom can enter to begin their love story. The serene setting with beautiful natural views is overflowing with life, spread across a massive 16-acre plot. The outdoor sanctuary boasts luscious greenery, stunning views of the nearby mountains, and many pecan trees. Wide, open outdoor spaces offer an opportunity for large or small wedding parties to be part of your big day. The venue allows couples to book:
Wills Creek Winery offers affordable rates, considering that this is a great venue for luxury weddings. Wedding receptions start at just $1,500 and wedding ceremonies start at only $3,800. The venue also includes access to the parking lot, a bridal suite, and set-up. There are five event spaces available, along with covered and uncovered outdoor spaces.
If you would consider photography one of the most important aspect of your wedding day…if you want those timeless photos that will truly stand the test of time, then look no further than Wills Creek Winery. The winery offers photo opportunities that work off of the natural light and landscape of the area. Newlyweds spend time alone between the vines – in the middle of the vineyard – for one of the best photo opportunities possible. A massive green archway leads into the vines with flowers surrounding it. Couples often say their vows in front of this space. At night, fairy lights illuminate the grounds and offer yet another option for me to capture the life of the party, the romance and the magical moments that couples often miss during the day’s activities. But that’s just the start of the beauty you’ll experience. There is also a:
The rustic pavilion spans 2,000 square feet and is open-air during non-winter months. When the weather starts getting cold, the venue encloses the pavilion to keep guests warm and comfortable.
Catering is available, with buffet-style options and a vast menu. Catering offers options for the entire guest list, including appetizers to full meals. Vegan and vegetarian options are available, too. This is great news if you want to check off more than one vendor from your list!
The venue’s fee includes the entire set-up and clean-up of the space, too. Cocktail receptions are an additional option, and couples can request chairs, tables, lighting, centerpieces, aisle markers and other items from the venue. The venue is wheelchair accessible, with parking available on-site.
You have enough on your plate during all of the wedding planning. Countless hours’ worth of meeting with photographers (like me), videographers, going to fittings and scouring venues are part of the process. Wills Creek takes the hardship off your hands with the help of an expert wedding coordinator. The coordinator takes care of the fine details for you and goes above and beyond for every wedding. In fact, the coordinator offers help with:
Coordinators will go the extra mile and arrange accommodations for wedding guests coming from out of town and also book transport for them. On-site support is available on the big day so that couples can sit back and enjoy their wedding. The venue has packages to accommodate 50–200 guests, and pricing drops to less than 50% if you have 200 people. Multiple additional items are available, including bartender, parking attendant, overnight stay, rehearsal dinner and so much more.
