Today I want to answer the question, “What are my options if I want to do my wedding and reception in downtown Birmingham?” So, I’m going to quickly go over the different types of venues that we have downtown. First and probably the most common are our historic buildings. They have been renovated to accommodate weddings and receptions. So, within that category you’ve got your warehouses, your lofts, and your classic ballroom style venues. Next up, we have our historic homes. So, historic homes were once privately owned residences, they have a lot of cool architectural features, and a lot of them have outdoor spaces. So, if you want to incorporate the outdoors in your ceremony or have an indoor, outdoor experience for your guests, then that is a great option. Next up, we have our private clubs. So, we have a couple of clubs located downtown. Great views with more of a contemporary feel. So, they don’t really have a historic feel so much. More clean, modern, country club feel if you will. And lastly, I made a category, it’s like our specialty venues. So, we have Iron City, that’s a concert hall, that also does a lot of weddings and receptions. And then we also work with Regions Field, which is the ballpark. And that one’s been really popular. They have a huge ballroom with great views. So, I hope that helps. Determining your venue location will set the tone and the vibe of your wedding. So, consider all your options before you set your tours, and please check out engagedbirmingham.com to see a list of all the venues that we love. Thanks.

Today, I’m gonna answer your question, “What are my ceremony options for getting married downtown?” Basically you have three general options. The first one is a church, the second one would be a park, and the third one would be your actual reception venue. So, the first one let’s talk about is churches. So, we have some beautiful historic churches downtown, and we have a lot to choose from, but they all have different rules, and they all have different pricing. I would say the pricing can range from $500 at some churches if you’re a member, up to like $4500. So, you need to keep that in mind. Churches are not free. Secondly is a park. So, we’ve got several local parks, managed and operated by the City of Birmingham, so those are great options if you want to have an outdoor ceremony and then go to your indoor reception afterwards. The thing about the parks is some of them stay open to the public, so you have to consider that, and secondly you may have to have a tent on backup, in case there is rain or inclement weather. Okay, so third would be your reception venue. This has been really popular for our brides. A lot of them just like the convenience of getting married and having the reception in the same location. So, we have several venues large enough to accommodate a ceremony space and a reception space, and if they don’t, then our venues will offer up the flip as an option. So, today the question was what are my ceremony location options for downtown Birmingham, and I’m Steph with Engaged. Please check out EngagedBirmingham.com to see a listing of all the ceremony locations that we love. Thanks!

Starting Point: Commerce St
Montgomery is the capital of the U.S. state of Alabama and is the county seat of Montgomery County. Named for Richard Montgomery, it is located on the Alabama River, in the Gulf Coastal Plain. As of the 2010 Census, Montgomery had a population of 205,764. It is the second-largest city in Alabama, after Birmingham, and the 103rd largest in the United States. The Montgomery Metropolitan Statistical Area had a 2010 estimated population of 374,536. It is the fourth-largest in the state and 136th among United States metropolitan areas.
The city was incorporated in 1819, as a merger of two towns situated along the Alabama River. It became the state capital in 1846, representing the shift of power to the south-central area with the growth of cotton as a commodity crop of the Black Belt and Mobile’s rise as a mercantile port. In February 1861, Montgomery was selected as the first capital of the Confederate States of America, until the seat of government moved to Richmond, Virginia, in May of that year. During the mid-20th century, Montgomery was a major site of events in the African-American Civil Rights Movement, including the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the Selma to Montgomery marches.
In addition to housing many Alabama government agencies, Montgomery has a large military presence due to Maxwell Air Force Base; public universities Alabama State University, Troy University (Montgomery campus), and Auburn University at Montgomery; private colleges/universities Faulkner University and Huntingdon College; high-tech manufacturing, including Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Alabama; and cultural attractions such as the Alabama Shakespeare Festival and Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts.
Two ships of the United States Navy have been named after the city, including USS Montgomery (LCS-8).
Montgomery has won several national awards including being voted Best Historic City by USA Today, being named an All-America City in 2014 by the National Civic League, being named a “Top City For Job Growth” in 2014 by ziprecruiter.com, and being named the happiest city in Alabama. Montgomery has also been recognized nationally for its successful, and ongoing downtown revitalization and new urbanism projects with Montgomery having been one of the first cities in the nation to implement Smart Code Zoning.
