Congratulations, you just got engaged!! You’ve set a date, and excitement is through the roof as you start on your wedding checklist. There’s the flowers, the food, the band, but before anything else, the venue. Well, if you book at Otter Creek Farm wedding venue, then your venue will be the first and last thing you check off your list!
The owners of Otter Creek Farmstead & Distillery in Ohatchee, AL want to make planning your day a breeze. So, they bundle their venue packages with the wedding planning services of Rebecca Williamson. Rebecca will connect you with vendors that suit your unique tastes and personalities to give you the best day possible.
And really, that’s just the icing on the cake!
For starters, the location. The farmstead sits among the rolling foothills of the breathtaking Appalachian Mountains. Thus there are tons of great places for photos — it’s really hard to go wrong!
Secondly, the property. Beautifully kept lawns, wood and stone structures, large ring chandeliers, coupled with countless other little details make Otter Creek Farm an incredible collision of southern elegance and country chic charm. You will be amazed when you see it for yourself!
You and your bridesmaids will get ready in the bridal suite just off the Grand Room, or if you prefer you can rent the Hill Cottage. Either way, you will have all you need for a good time with your girls, prepping in luxury and style!
Meanwhile, the groom and his men will get ready in the distillery tasting room. With a TV, full kitchen, and private bathroom, they’ll have no complaints while they all get ready.
The beautiful ceremony lawn can easily accommodate up to 200 guests, with a tent available for poor weather. And while you stand at the altar, there is nothing behind you but gorgeous rolling hillside. Have I mentioned how beautiful this spot is?
Then when the reception comes, you and your guests will enjoy a menu crafted by Otter Creek’s own chef, fully customizable for whatever you have in mind.
Plus, when you book your Saturday wedding, you also get the venue on Friday night for a rehearsal dinner. And the Stables and Hill Cottage provide Friday night lodging for up to 26 people total. The wedding party can spend the night and sleep in, not needing to get up early to drive Saturday morning. Or you can instead provide special accommodations for guests who may be traveling a long way.
In addition to the bridal suite, Grand Room, distillery tasting room, and ceremony lawn, you’ll have access to: the pool deck, the garden pavilion, the game room, the grill house, and the horseshoe and bocce court. There’s no shortage of fun to be had when you book at Otter Creek Farm!
