Oak Meadow Event Center

Oak Meadow Event Center is a beautiful family-owned wedding venue right of Highway 144 Ohatchee, Alabama just one hour from Birmingham, 2 hours from Atlanta, and 30 minutes from Gadsden.

Oak Meadow Event Center began when Joy Acker had a vision of an all-white farmhouse-style building with the capability to handle the unpredictable weather in Alabama as well as offer something totally unique in style and experience.

Nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, the venue sits on a tiny hill surrounded by Oak trees. It’s an all-white modern-day farmhouse with vaulted ceilings, a beautiful fireplace, and a bridal suite laced with shiplap. It is such a beautiful space with so much natural light! You can make your wedding vision come to life in this state of the art facility, and the truly personal touch of being a family-owned and operated business makes Oak Meadow a stand out venue in the wedding industry.

You can have your wedding ceremony inside the Great Room or outside in the Courtyard. Some couples will do a cocktail hour outside on the porch or even an outdoor reception in the courtyard with the ceremony inside! There are so many ways you can configure this beautiful venue!
