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! Read less

My advice to couples is BOOK this place! The venue itself is gorgeous, the Sonnet House team is super, and everything is high quality. You truly pay for what you get! I was super skeptical about paying a price and letting them do all the decorating because I thought I could do it myself cheaper – Wrong! Jared, Corey, and Ellen are experts at what they do and they know what works best. I’m so glad I let go of being in control and left my trust in them. Both of my families mentioned multiple times how nice it was that they could come to the wedding, enjoy, mingle with those that came to our event and not have to deal with the stress of setting up, decorating, coordinating, and cleaning up. It’s well worth the money and I wouldn’t change a thing if I could go back. It was truly the best wedding I’ve ever experienced.

The team at The Sonnet House actually made all of our wedding-day dreams come true. They were helpful, professional, attentive and oh so fun to work with! They helped ease all our planning anxiety and ensured that our day was smooth and that I didn't have to lift a finger or worry about any of the day-of details. It was truly perfect, and we wouldn't change a thing!

Great venue and great people to work with! They definitely know what they are doing. We had 100% chance of rain the day before and that morning and they worked with us moving everything inside to have the wedding and then back outside when the chance of rain went down dramatically. I would HIGHLY recommend this venue. It is absolutely stunning and they have a plan for EVERYTHING!

Ellen, Corey, and Jared truly went above and beyond to make sure that our wedding was the perfect day that we'd dreamed of for so long. They are each incredibly talented, genuine, caring, and super great at their jobs! From planning to beautiful florals to fantastic catering to contacting all of our other vendors to make sure everything went off without a hitch, Ellen and everybody at The Sonnet House took the worry and stress out of wedding planning and allowed us the opportunity to really cherish this special time in our lives. I realize that I'm biased, but I just don't see how any other wedding venue could top everything that The Sonnet House and its staff have to offer! We very highly recommend!! Ellen, Jared, and Corey: thank y'all! We love you guys!

Everything about the Sonnet House was perfect! I live about 150 miles away and didn't really have time to travel back and forth to make decisions and pay attention to every little detail. After just a couple of meetings, Jared, Corey, and Ellen handled everything. When we showed up on our wedding day, I knew I wouldn't have to worry about anything. The staff worked all day to make sure everything was prepared just the way we wanted and that we didn't need to do anything but enjoy our day. Ellen seemed to anticipate any of my needs before I even realized it. One of my bridesmaids stepped on an ant hill and Ellen was immediately there with a first aid kit and ice to make sure she was taken care of. I couldn't have created a more perfect venue in my wildest dreams. The setting was beautiful and suited our style perfectly. I would recommend the Sonnet House to anyone. While I like to believe I was a very laid back bride and let them do a lot of decision making for me, I also know they would work well for a more hands on bride.

I could never properly thank The Sonnet House for all that they did to make our wedding day absolutely perfect. My fiancée and were a little older with full-time careers when we got married. Because of this, we did not want a long engagement. The Sonnet House encouraged us that we could absolutely pull off a four-month engagement. Wedding planning can be completely overwhelming and time consuming. For this reason, The Sonnet House was a perfect fit for us. We didn't have the time to pick out flowers or decorations. Instead, we put our trust in The Sonnet House and they more than exceeded our expectations. The attention to detail was amazing and it was such a pleasure to work with such a talented team of professionals who took all of the headaches away. From gluing a groomsmen's shoe back together to providing dental floss for a seamstress to sew me in my dress (yes-both happened), nothing phased Ellen. Numerous guests commented on how beautiful The Sonnet House is and what a wonderful time they had! We couldn't agree more. We count Ellen, Corey, and Jared as friends and will be forever grateful for a truly amazing day.

Ellen, Jared and Corey went above and beyond to make our wedding everything I had hoped for. I could not have asked for a better venue. I had my heart set on a bouquet of peonies, Corey did everything in his power and made it happen! My flowers were absolutely breathtaking. The food was out of this world delicious. Ellen was a dream to work with. With my mom in Texas and myself in Tuscaloosa she made wedding planning so enjoyable. They offer such a wide variety of services for amazing prices. The Sonnet House is a dream wedding venue with a spectacular team!
