Did you know the fall, according to area wedding planners, is the busiest season for weddings in Alabama?

Chalk it up to the perfect weather as summer turns to fall, foliage adorning the hillsides, and light amount of rain we tend to see this time of year. (I may also be biased, as my own wedding anniversary takes place in October.)

Now wedding season is in full swing, I’m rounding up 7 area wedding venues for you to jump-start planning for the busy wedding season next year.

Huntsville Botanical Garden

Huntsville’s very own outdoor wonderland, the Huntsville Botanical Garden, offers multiple opportunities for that fairy-tale wedding you’ve been dreaming of.

Choose to have your ceremony at various areas around the garden from the luxurious Grand Hall, to the delightful Carriage House, or an outdoor setting such as the Celebration Garden. The gardens can even support walk-in weddings for small parties.

With the lush greenery, perfectly-maintained grounds, and team of professionals that accompany booking the Huntsville Botanical Garden for your big day, it’s easy to see why this is a Huntsville favorite.

Just down the interstate from Huntsville, you’ll find a property primed to provide your ultimate wedding from ceremony to reception.

Creekside is in Mooresville, tucked away in a cute town you’ll feel is just for you on your special day. I’ve been to several weddings here and am continually impressed by what these grounds have to offer couples looking to say “I do.”

The French Country themed décor, outdoor pavilion, and natural beauty of the home and surrounding area will bring your vision to life!

Huntsville Historic Depot

A Huntsville classic, the Historic Huntsville Depot Roundhouse is that dose of Huntsville your guests will keep talking about for years to come.

This venue is on the grounds of the restored train depot, maintained by the Earlyworks Family of Museums. Everywhere you look, natural light filters in from the windows along the rounded exposed brick walls for that rustic feel everyone loves.

Nestled on the outskirts of downtown and close to all the great afterparty locations, you’ll find everything you need and more right here at the Roundhouse.

Burritt on the Mountain
