Moving Family Forward

Wedding bells are ringing! Planning a wedding is an exciting time for couples, but it can be stressful when factoring in all the decisions that must be made. The wedding venue is often the largest decision, especially when considering other factors, such as how many guests a venue can accommodate, what venues are available for your date, and what ambiance feels right to host your memories for your big day. Weber Mortgage lists 5 wedding venues in Birmingham to tie the knot:

 

1. Vulcan

Settled atop Red Mountain, the site of the iconic iron statue offers spectacular views overlooking the city. This is the perfect place to say “I do” if you want an unmatched view of the Birmingham skyline.
