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

There is nothing The Sonnet House can't do. They were nothing but help before, during, and after the wedding. Yes, the prices are higher than others, but it is beyond worth it. They will answer any and every question you have, help you find and organize your vendors, and create an entire vision for your wedding day to be absolutely flawless. When my husband and are were looking for venues, we weren't in love with many, but we loved the look of The Sonnet House. When we met with Ellen initially and she explained what all they do and showed an example timeline from a wedding, explained in detail the level of coordination they do, and everything else we were both sold. My dad (paying for the wedding) was satisfied, but questioned the price. After the wedding, he COULD NOT stop talking about how shocked he was at the level of service they provided. He kept laughing at how Ellen asked for the keys of his car to bring it up and pack all our belongings and our to-go plates. Needless to say, we will be referring them to anyone and everyone. I could go on for days about all the wonderful things they did and how beautiful they made my wedding day, but I think you get the point. :)

I'm the youngest daughter in my family, and with my two older sisters' weddings, my family tried to save money and do most of the work ourselves. Their weddings were beautiful, BUT it was an incredibly stressful time for my family and especially for my mom who had so many tasks to do that she couldn't enjoy the day. For my wedding, I was determined to pick a venue that would take care of every detail so that my mom and the rest of my family could relax and enjoy the day. That was my first priority in choosing a venue, and Ellen, Jared, and Corey blew me away with how professional and on top of every detail they were. My family was able to relax and be present to enjoy our wedding instead of stressed about putting on the event. I like to plan events and am a detail oriented person, so I was nervous about giving the reins over to someone else for my wedding day, but I am so glad that I did! They took my vision from inspirational pictures and made my ceremony and reception space so much more beautiful than anything I would have ever thought to create. Though the Sonnet House might seem out of one's price range if you are trying to beat the average wedding cost, it is absolutely necessary to have a group of people as thoughtful and attentive as Ellen, Jared, and Corey to make your event seamless. They helped make my 20 degree sleet storm wedding day an absolute winter fairy-tale dream, and now I wouldn't have had it another way. It is 100% worth it to pay a little bit more to have people at the Sonnet House do the work for you so that you and your loved ones can enjoy the special experience.

I could go on about the important little details that they made happen for us (changing our wedding party at the last minute, packing up a HUGE meal including CAKES to take with us after we left, giant clear umbrellas, an indoor arbor, etc.) and how thoughtful they are, but you must contact them for your day in order to really know what I'm talking about!

When my partner and I got engaged, we looked online for wedding venues that are same-sex friendly. A few places popped up on Google, including The Sonnet House. When we contacted them to make an appointment to see the venue, Ellen was prompt and friendly, and once we saw The Sonnet House, we didn't even bother looking into other places! They have a beautiful farm house, courtyard, and a chapel, not to mention stunning grounds. I have only compliments for the organized and affable staff, the quality of the food and flowers, and the gorgeous location. My (now) wife and I work a lot, and we really appreciated Ellen, Corey, and Jared's amazing ability to hear our ideas and turn them into the perfect wedding. It was so wonderful to feel relaxed on my wedding day and just be able to show up, get married, and have fun at the reception with friends and family! (I'll mention one other thing: we are good friends with a couple who are getting married this spring, and at our wedding reception, they said, "I wish we were getting married at The Sonnet House!")

If you are looking for a venue, look no further! The Sonnet House is not only beautiful but the staff will make you feel like a million bucks! Everything they did for our wedding was done with the most incredible style and professionalism. I went in expecting everything to be great but was totally blown away with how amazing every single detail was. My family and friends are still talking about it! I have been told by so many that is was the most beautiful wedding they have ever attended. The food was delish! The flowers were Out of this World! And I did not have to stress or worry about a thing, Ellen , Jared, and Corey are nothing short of magnificent. If I could give 100 stars instead of 5 I would. Job well done!

If you're looking for the perfect venue this is the one. The Sonnet House was the first venue we toured, & the one we kept coming back to. We toured several venues and nothing compared. The house and property alone is breath taking. It has such a charm to it, but the Sonnet House is so much more than that. The team is Wonderful, any question i had big or small they answered it perfectly. I didn't have a single worry leading up to my wedding day, they are truly experts at what they do. I told them my vision and they perfected it. On our wedding day we got to actually enjoy the day from the time we got there to the time we left. They go the extra mile to make sure your wedding day is everything you could want. It's been almost 2 months and people are still talking about our wedding, we are so thankful for everything Ellen, Corey, and Jared did!
