The Willows brings a new perspective to how your special day should be. Its more than just a ceremony and reception. The Willows seeks to make every moment and every aspect of your special day truly unique and memorable. Your ceremony is completely customized to match your desires and personality. The grounds offer a beautiful and relaxing experience your guests will never forget. What is different about The Willows is that our gardens, streams, fountains; all of our picturesque grounds are solely for the enjoyment of you and your guests. You won't be pushed from one area to another, you won't be sharing the grounds with strangers, you and your guests can stroll the grounds to set a truly tranquil ambiance.
The Willows is located near Cullman county in central Alabama, along the Black Warrior River at the site of the Nectar Covered Bridge, which was at one time the seventh longest covered bridge in the country before it was burned. After the current bridge was built, the land involved with the covered bridge was given back to the family of the owners. Some of this land is being used in the current state of the grounds, where you can see the standing pillars in the river.
The gardens between the gazebo and the house have always been kept up for the relaxation and enjoyment of anyone who wanted to stop by. Now, after being reworked to accommodate larger groups and incorporated into an event center, it may now be enjoyed by thousands a year.
We look forward to meeting you and hope you fall in love with The Willows as we have. We want to devote our full attention to all of our guests so we ask everyone to please call ahead and make an appointment to view the grounds.
