The owner is ready to retire and wants to sell the business to someone looking for a turn-key, very successful well known wedding and events company in the northern Alabama area. Built in 2002, the company has made a name for itself both locally and nationally, winning multiple awards as well as being selected by Southern Living Magazine as one of the “South’s Best Wedding Venues” and used as a setting to film a segment of a nationally syndicated show that will air in the fall of 2019 on Oprah Winfrey Network.
