Just a quick reminder of our Wedding Specials going on right now. We are celebrating our 9th year in business as of today. To show our appreciation, we are offering a huge discount on our wedding packages.

The chapel and reception center package is $200 off the regular price and the Garden Wedding package is $400 off. You must reserve your day this month in order to receive the discount. So this is the last weekend! Hurry and give us a call.

Some of the things that we are doing at Sweet Gum Bottom is updating our landscaping at the chapel and party room. This is an ongoing project, but we do a little every free minute we have. We are also planning another outdoor area for weddings, concerts and other outdoor entertainment functions. So stay tuned and see what's up our sleeves!

An Alabama Wedding Chapel is chosen in Andalusia

Charebi Baker of Pensacola, Florida chose an Alabama Wedding Chapel to begin her new life as Mrs. Ronnie Jones. She searched online for the perfect spot and found Sweet Gum Bottom Bed and Breakfast and wedding chapel in Andalusia, Alabama. They and their families drove up to join them as they were united in marraige. It was a private, very romantic, ceremony that joined the two as man and wife.

After the ceremony the families joined them for dinner at CJ's Grille in downtown Andalusia. Thank you Charebi and Ronnie for choosing us to host your wedding. See you on your first anniversary!

Congratulation Kathrine,
