About

2022 Couples' Choice Awards Winner
$10k - $12k For 100 Guests

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!

    Dreamy venue with the best planning team

    The Sonnet House was everything I hoped it would be (and more) for my wedding day. Ellen, their wedding coordinator, made planning much less stressful. She was also a PRO at keeping everyone in line and on time during the rehearsal and wedding day. She is fun, professional, and receptive. I felt like she - and the whole sonnet house team - understood exactly what we were envisioning for our day and made it all come together perfectly.
    The venue does in-house catering and florals, both of which were a delight. The food was delicious and I loved my flowers so much!
    I would recommend the Sonnet House to absolutely anyone and everyone.

    Best Day Ever!

    The sonnet house went above and beyond any expectations I could have possibly had!! They made my dream wedding a reality! They made recommendations, talked me through everything, and made sure that everything was exactly how I wanted! Any time I had a question they were quick to answer and were very thorough. I would recommend them to absolutely anyone! They made the entire experience enjoyable and stress free which is unheard of! They handled any issues that came up and always made sure I was informed in what was going on! I would use them over and over again!!!

    Amazing Team and Venue

    The Sonnet House team was a fantastic group to work with for planning our wedding. Due to the pandemic we had to make changes and accommodations and the Sonnet House was so helpful in making sure that everything got rescheduled, was safe for our guests, and that the wedding went off without any issues. Sonnet House was great at listening to our vision for the wedding and running with our ideas without much work on our end. We were very grateful and appreciative of the fact that if you plan a wedding here it really reduces a lot of the communication and legwork needed.

    Overall, we couldn't be happier with how things turned out for us and owe The Sonnet House a huge amount of gratitude for making our dream day a reality. The team was so easy to work with and we felt like they genuinely cared about making our day special. We wouldn't change a thing about the planning process or the day itself. 10/10 would recommend!

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.
