Sarah, the event coordinator, and her staff were amazing for our wedding. They did everything they could to make sure that the space was perfect! We heard nothing but amazing things from our guests regarding the service, food, and overall atmosphere.

The event coordinator at TCH was incredibly helpful and very responsive to all of our inquiries. The food was fantastic and TCH even made our custom signature drink from a recipe that we provided...we received compliments all night from our guests for food and drink! The terrace and ballroom were a perfect combination for our ceremony and reception, and one of the main reasons we picked this venue was because it was unique and intimate. Our wedding was beautiful and exactly how we envisioned.

What a great venue. Event manager, Sarah, was a pleasure to work with as was all the staff on the event day. The outside ceremony tent, garden cocktail hour & dinner in the main ballroom couldn't have been any better. All three entree choices were delicious and the Bates Salad presentation was wonderful. Thank you Birmingham Community House for making our daughter's wedding so wonderful.

When my husband and I first saw The Community House we knew it would be the perfect place to host our white wedding ceremony. Unfortunately we thought we couldn't afford it and kept looking. The other places just didn't leave us with the ah factor and didn't feel quite right. So we researched The Community House again and realized we could afford it and it wasn't anymore expensive than the other venues we were looking at. We quickly put down our deposit and worked closely with Sarah Tufts in setting our plans in action. Sarah was great to work with. She would promptly respond to emails and was willing to work around our schedule since we were out of town and we were primarily available on the weekends. It was a bit tough getting enough time to decorate but Sarah was able to get us a little bit of additional time in the morning and it helped us out tremendously to store some of the items there ahead time. We loved the experience there and our guests loved the venue as well. It didn't take much decorations as The Community House has a beautiful atmosphere. Thank you for the great customer service and flexibility!

I wanted a venue to hold just my wedding ceremony at that wasn't a church or a chapel. The Community House's outside white tented terrance was the perfect location! Working with the event coordinator, Sarah Tufts, was a breeze. She was extremely knowledgable, professional, and quick to respond to all email correspondance regarding my special day which is everything anyone could want in the person in charge of the production of your ceremony. In addition to that, she was very polite and easy to work with. :) I was able tp bring in my own paper lanterns and decorate the tent however I desired.

The site was very affordable. We got married on a Saturday and as long as we were off the grounds by 3pm it was only $300! Both inside and outside the Community House is gorgeous and great for picture taking with the bridal party. Across the street from the site, is a park with a fountain, benches, trees and all kinds of structures ideal for capturing beautiful photos.

I highly recommend this venue!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this place!! It beautiful inside and out! We had our wedding here with the ceremony outside on the tented terrace and the reception inside the ballrooms. My guests are still giving me compliments on how gorgeous our venue was and how attentive, nice and courteous the staff was! And working with Sara Tufts, the events coordinator, was a breeze! She was so understanding and made everything so easy. I'd definitely have another event here and recommend this venue to anyone!

The community house was just the finest location for our wedding!! From the exterior courtyard with a white tent for our cocktail hour, to the inside Wallace ballroom for our reception, it was just stunning! The building is fabulously beautiful and recently updated carpet, paint, curtains, upholstery, and more! I had such great confidence in working with Sarah in event planning and her patience and promptness working with me was just the best for any bride! The venue has a fabulous caterer, Epoch Catering, which I hired and I also highly recommend them too. Unbelievable food and service!

Sarah helped with vases for the tented area, contacting all my vendors for delivery information, anything I dropped off for set up, and much more. I was able to decorate the back courtyard by the ball room with twinkle lights for a quaint feeling with the pond there and the photos of the night were stunning!

I can't say enough good things of this place, it really made our day a dream come true. I highly recommend it!!
