    We could not have been more thrilled with how our reception at Rucker Place went! Paula was an angel during the months (and months) of planning. She even stepped in to help me when another vendor was giving me major issues! Paula and everyone at Rucker make you feel so special, even before your big day! If there were any issues that cane up or anything that didn’t go according to plan, I sure didn’t learn about it- which is exactly how it should be!! I loved that choosing Rucker Place meant my florist and caterer were chosen for me- fewer decisions for a bride to make is always a win in my book! LSL Event Design did a phenomenal job (Laure is the BEST!) and Savoie’s Catering was on my top caterer’s list before I got married (and we are still hearing about how delicious the food was!). My sister-in-law said that if she was from Birmingham and had a Birmingham wedding, she would have chosen Rucker Place. The charm cannot be beat! THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR SPECIAL DAY THE BEST ONE!!

    Beautiful place in the heart of the southside. Really a historical place - not just a place that says it is.
