About

Otter Creek Farm is a rustic wedding venue located in Ohatchee, Alabama. Set at the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, the venue features rolling fields of native grasses, creeks, open woods, and a lake filled with trophy bass and rainbow trout. This farm was a vision of native Alabamians, Frank and Jane Brown. After being destroyed by storms in 2011, the farm was rebuilt in 2013 and was redesigned to let out for events in 2016.

The Otter Creek experience is phenomenal!

Otter Creek Farmstead and Distillery is a gorgeous venue. I fell in love with it at first glance as did my husband, daughter, and son-in-love! The facilities are spectacular and maintained with excellence. The guest entrance to the ceremony site sets a stunning stage with the architectural beauty of the buildings and patios and the picturesque landscape. The Grand Room with the adjacent patio is just absolute perfection! All the furnishings are equally lovely and it all comes together with such a warm vibe. The adjacent courtyard and pavilion are also well done and provide so many options for space. We had approximately 280 guests and it never felt crowded.

Otter Creek is truly amazing. Even more amazing are the owners, Jane and Frank Brown. They instantly welcomed us, made us feel at home, and patiently answered all our questions. The Browns and their staff strive for perfection and they worked to make my daughter’s wedding dreams a reality. They worked seamlessly with all our vendors and our weekend was calm and stress free. You will not find better hosts than Jane and Frank Brown. They go above and beyond to make everyone feel special.

The wedding party stayed in the Hill Cottage and Stable Residence. These overnight lodging areas are beautifully appointed and were spotless. Breakfast was served at each residence in beautiful baskets and was just so delicious. It was awesome to have everyone together in one place and all enjoyed the fire pit and game room after the rehearsal dinner.

Weddings at Otter Creek are spectacular! Our family and our guests have such fantastic wedding memories. I am so happy our family chose an Otter Creek wedding!

Absolutely incredible!

Otter Creek is the absolutely dream venue! Frank and Jane go above and beyond to make all of their couples feel special, loved, and seen. One of my favorite parts was that the entire wedding party was able to stay together at the farm. The groomsmen and my husband stayed at the stables and the girls stayed at the Hill Cottage. Being able to have everyone in the same place for the rehearsal dinner, night before the wedding, and day of was an absolute blast and made our wedding day so relaxed and fun! Jane put so much attention to detail in every part of both places. It truly felt like a home away from home the entire weekend! Plus, we were delivered a delicious breakfast with coffee the morning of the big day!

The farm itself is undoubtably gorgeous. Our wedding was in May and there was so much greenery and the flowers were blooming! It was so beautiful! Apart from the landscaping, the facilitates are very well maintained. The smallest details were clearly given so much thought. We have had so many of our guests compliment how beautiful it was!

It rained during the reception, but the layout of the farm kept us from missing a beat. It was the most epic party of our lives! You absolutely want your wedding at Otter Creek!
