Noccalula Falls Park: For a small, rustic experience, Noccalula Falls Park in Gadsden checks all the boxes. With a cascading 90-foot waterfall as the backdrop for a beautiful cedar and stone wedding chapel, 65 family and friends can enjoy all mother nature has to offer on the big day.

The Stricklin Hotel: For an elegant, slightly larger wedding – up to 125 guests – the Stricklin Social is located on the second floor of the beautiful Stricklin Hotel in Florence.

Burns Bluff at High Falls: Burns Bluff at High Falls is a premier Wedding Destination Location on an amazing mountaintop in beautiful North Alabama. Unlike most wedding venue rentals, ours includes 48-hour access to the venue and overnight lodging for 18 guests in the Burns Bluff Lodge. Book your fairy tale wedding on the mountain.

Dismals Canyon: For the nature lovers, spend a wedding week or weekend at Dismals Canyon in Phil Campbell. A National Natural Landmark, Dismals Canyon is nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Activities for guests could include hikes around the 85 acres of land or s’mores by a campfire.
