The Park Crest Event Facility

Whether you want to have a sunny outdoor wedding, or you prefer a bright and intimate indoor setting, or even if you just need a place for a small reception, the Park Crest Event Facility in Hoover, AL is sure to have something for you!


Where do I start with the Park Crest Event Facility?

It has so much to offer, it’s honestly hard to summarize!

First of all, when you decide to book at Park Crest, you’ve got your choice of four separate venues! Each one is dazzling and unique, and all four are equipped with all you need to make your wedding day perfect.

The Carriage House

Park Crest’s main indoor space is the the Carriage House, which has two separate levels. The lower level is a beautiful spacious room with high, exposed ceilings. The brick and stucco walls and beautiful wooden support beams make this wide space warm and inviting.

In contrast, the upper level has beautiful wood-paneled walls, sloped ceilings, and crystal chandeliers. All this combined with the grand, two-sided fireplace on one end, it feels like a beautiful mixture of a ballroom, a church, and an intimate cabin in the woods. It is at once spectacular and simple, both reverent and relaxed.

For a ceremony, the Carriage House lower level accommodates 450, and the upper level 425. For a reception, 360 seated guests can share the lower space or 330 in the upper space. If your reception is cocktail-style, then the lower level holds 450 and the upper level 400.

The Gardens

If you prefer an outdoor venue, then worry not! The Gardens is an absolutely stunning venue for an open-air wedding of any size. The stone walkways and lush, manicured lawns will add just the right touch to your beautiful day! And as you walk down the aisle, you will get a spectacular view of Shades Mountain. The Gardens can accommodate 400 guests for a ceremony and cocktail reception, and up to 330 for a seated reception.

Park Crest Place

Last but not least, Park Crest Place makes an excellent choice for a smaller reception, rehearsal dinner, or bridal luncheon, seating up to 175 cocktail-style or 150 seated. The simply chic interior of this converted restaurant is sure to delight your guests!


If you’re not already sold on the spaces themselves, then wait until you hear what else the Park Crest Event Facility offers!

There are two bridal suites and two groom suites throughout the Park Crest Event Facility. Each venue also has a built-in bar, plus three satellite bars that can go wherever you need them. The Gardens and the upper and lower Carriage House levels all have stages for live entertainment.

Plus, to ensure your wedding day is as hassle-free as possible, Park Crest will handle the catering with one of their three commercial kitchens. The menu is fully customizable and accommodating to any nutrition or dietary restrictions, and professional cooks make everything from scratch and serve it hot and fresh! Not to mention the in-house wedding planning and event rentals!
