A Southern, traditional garden wedding in South Alabama

The sweetest couple chose a southern wedding, rich in tradition, at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast. Her day was perfect as she prepared to marry the man of her dreams! 

The reception was held in the garden area of the bed and breakfast. Her tables were beautifully adorned with fresh roses and pearls, under the canopy of a clear, lighted tent.

Guests enjoyed star gazing while feasting on a cajun, seafood buffet. Shrimp and chicken gumbo with rice, jambalaya, cheese grits and low country boil were among the menu items. Yummy! Yummy!

Keeping it hot and fresh!

Thanks for choosing Sweet Gum Bottom and we wish you many years of happiness!!!!

Christmas at Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast

We have had a wonderful Christmas season here at Sweet Gum Bottom and are still celebrating for a few more days! We were invited to be a host home for the annual Andalusia Tour of Homes. So, we thought we would share a few highlights for those unable to stop by during open house. Hope you enjoy the tour...

This old screen door, I've had for a while, greets you as you come into the foyer.

A very simple pallet of white and silver for our dining room table.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting us on our Christmas tour! Hope to see you next year!
