The Sonnet House is located on Highway 119 in Leeds, AL. Centered on 18 acres, the back property line is shared with the Little Cahaba Creek. Only 15 miles from Downtown Birmingham, and 10 miles from Highway 280, The Sonnet House offers a very convenient and easy to reach location for guests familiar and unfamiliar with the Birmingham area. We are semi-inclusive meaning we provide in-house catering, florals, and coordination. Unlike other Venues in the Birmingham area, The Sonnet House only hosts one event each day. Since the recent completion of the Outdoor Stage, The Sonnet House can offer multiple outdoor locations for your ceremony. No need to worry about rain, our Indoor Ceremony option is available to all weddings held on site. With only one wedding held each day the indoor option is even available last minute. To see pictures of the Venue visit our website. Our management team will meet with you and your vendors to determine exactly how the facility will be set up for your event. Our open floor plan allows the house to be customized to your exact needs, which makes every event unique. In preparation for your event, we offer the use of our fully furnished Bride's and Groom's room. Both located on the 2nd floor of The Sonnet House, these rooms offer additional privacy for both families and the wedding party while everyone is getting ready. If you are interested in additional information email will be the best option. Please leave a message if we are unable to answer the phone and we will get back to you as soon as we can. Hope to hear from you soon!

If I could do it all over again I wouldn't change a thing!
The best advice I can give if you're looking into The Sonnet House is to book them immediately. One of my biggest concerns about having a winter wedding in Alabama is that you have absolutely no idea what the weather may do. These guys have an amazing back up plan (Chapel) which we ended up needing and it was priceless. During the planning meetings they were always patient to explain how each aspect of my day would be translated to a back up plan if necessary, so when the wedding day came (along with torrential downpours in our area), I was able to continue with hair and make up and hanging out with my girls and not having to worry about the details. Ellen is an unbelievable force and I wish I could carry her in my pocket to help with everyday stresses of life. She wrangled 3 sleepy toddlers and a big bridal party with ease. Corey did an amazing job with my flowers even though I was very little help in communicating what I wanted. If I could have my wedding done all over again tomorrow there isn't a single thing I would change...except I may have booked The Sonnet House even quicker.

Truly top of the line. We got married in November and weather in Alabama could not be more unpredictable. The team worked with us on our ever changing plans as we adjusted to the weather. Everything went so smoothly and Ellen was a step ahead on everything. They coordinated with our other vendors to make sure everything was there that we needed. The florals and food were amazing and people never stopped talking about how great our special day was. It truly was a joy and a privilege to get to work with them.

They made our day perfect and we never left any planning meetings feeling as though something had been over looked. Ellen has a answer for everything, most of the time before you even remember to ask the question!

I shot a wedding here last year and just can't help but praise the wonderful staff and gorgeous venue! Everyone there is super helpful and kind and the venue itself is simply wonderful for a country affair. The Sonnet House has many photogenic locations for pictures so you can bet that you and your guests will have many wonderful memories to look back on when you get your photos. On a personal note one of the photos I took is in my main portfolio and will more than likely be there for years to come! It'll be really hard to top that one :)
Having worked many weddings over the years at the Sonnet House I can tell you with certainty that these folks are the best!! They are true professionals and take their task to heart. The home is beautiful as is the grounds. They are well prepared, rain or shine, to make your day perfect. The wonderful landscaped grounds are always well groomed with tons of perfect backdrops for pictures to capture your special day. You owe it to yourself and your guest to tour this venue and meet the wonderful staff prior deciding on your venue.
A beautiful venue with some of the nicest folks around! You can be sure that your needs will be met if this is your venue!
