The first Southern Alabama wedding venue I want to highlight is Hatcher Farms Venue in Mobile. Hatcher Farms offers beautiful, versatile indoor and outdoor spaces to accommodate your wedding aesthetic.

They also have gorgeous trees, a beautiful winding fence line, a room to get ready in, a cute gazebo AND a really cool getaway car. Hatcher Farms is an excellent setting to bring your wedding dreams to life.

The next Southern Alabama wedding location I love is the Venue at Whiskey Ridge, found in my hometown of Silverhill. Whiskey Ridge is a gorgeous setting for modern rustic weddings, thanks to the venue's stunning modern barn and scenic outdoor space. It has one of the most photogenic trees I've ever seen! Plus, check out that massive stone fireplace! Regardless of what time of year you plan your wedding, Whiskey Ridge is the perfect place to host.

One of my favorite Southern Alabama wedding venues for an outdoor ceremony is the Veranda at the Preserve. The Veranda is located on a chic golf course with picturesque landscaping. I love how much room there is to spread out at the Veranda—you could even set up an area for field games to entertain guests before and after the ceremony! And that swing? One of my fave spots for bridal party pics! Fall is an exceptionally beautiful time to get married at the Veranda.

Right down the road from All Saints is the Admiral Hotel, a glamorous wedding reception venue. Looking for a taste of Old Hollywood?
