Best wedding ever!!
We held our wedding reception at Rucker Place and it was the best decision we made for all of our planning! When you book with Rucker, you get Paula, the event coordinator, who is AMAZING and makes planning so easy, Savoie Catering, which serves delicious food, and LSL Event Design (florals/decorations), who made everything look like a dream. Basically, when we signed our contract, we were already 60% complete with planning. Not only do you have phenomenal vendors to work with, renting this venue includes all tables, chairs, and linens. We were not nickel and dimed at all.
Rucker is gorgeous on it's own and has the Birmingham skyline as the backdrop. My husband and I were so thrilled with how everything turned out. You will not be disappointed!!Sent on 11/15/2019

Lovely, Lovely, Lovely evening at Rucker Place
This lovely mansion nestled on a street near downtown (with plenty of parking for guests) was the picturesque setting for a wonderful rehearsal dinner. Gail, the owner, and Paula, the event planner, were so helpful during all of the planning and the actual event. The vendors they work with at Rucker Place are top notch (Kellie at Savoie Catering and Laure at LSL Event Design).Sent on 10/17/2019
Our guests thanked us over and over for the experience! We recommend Rucker Place for any event but especially weddings!

Historic Rucker Place is the perfect venue!
You will love everything about Historic Rucker Place!! We had a beautiful Rehearsal Dinner there and everything was perfect! We had appetizers in the garden with the beautiful twinkling lights and dinner upstairs with a city view. The food was delicious - from appetizers to dessert! Paula at Rucker was so easy to work with ...the servers for dinner was very accommodating. I would recommend to anyone!Sent on 07/26/2019
