About TJ Tower Events

TJ Tower Events is a wedding venue located in Birmingham, Alabama. The Thomas Jefferson Tower is a 19-story apartment building used to host unforgettable events. The rooms inside provide elegant backdrops for wedding moments and photoshoots. This relaxed yet luxurious venue offers a traditional and historic setting to tie the knot and celebrate with loved ones.

Facilities and Capacity

From small, intimate gatherings to large, bustling celebrations, this venue offers a number of refined spaces to host wedding events in. The large ballroom can accommodate over 350 people and is ideal for big gatherings such as receptions and other grand affairs. A slightly smaller space, the parlor is regularly used to host cocktail hours and engagement parties. The large windows that line the walls of this room allow sunlight to fill the space, illuminating every detail and decoration. The terrace is an outdoor area that can accommodate up to 125 guests and overlooks downtown Birmingham.

Services Offered

TJ Tower Events can host a range of different events from engagement parties and rehearsal dinners to ceremonies and receptions. The staff here are happy to assist wedding parties in the setup and cleanup of the event. Chairs, tables and other basic necessities can be provided. We have a preferred catering list that consists of some of the best caterers in Birmingham as well!

History

The Thomas Jefferson Tower opened to the public in 1919 and celebrated the opening with a week-long gala. The ornate marble entrance hall and the large ballroom were its most impressive features. Over time, the building has hosted two Presidents and many other dignitaries. Unfortunately, in 1980 and 1981, devastating fires damaged the building and forced it to close for a period of time. In 2014 an investment group headed by Brian Beshara of New Orleans bought the building and transformed it into apartments and beautiful event spaces.

    Wonderful venue and staff!

    I had my son and daughter-in-law's rehearsal dinner in the Parlor and had a wonderful experience! The whole process from planning stage to the event was very easy. The event coordinator, Kristin, kept in contact with me through the whole process and I never had to "hunt" her down. I had so many wonderful compliments the night of the dinner and I couldn't have been more pleased! Also, Roots and Revelry provided the food for the dinner which was both delicious and convenient since they are right there in the TJ Tower!

    Perfect Wedding

    We had our wedding ceremony and reception. Used in house catering and the food was amazing. Our more than perfect coordinator made sure that our wedding day went off perfectly. Everything from the flowers to aisle to the wait staff and bartenders made our wedding the greatest! Best wedding venue in Birmingham, hands down.
