WELCOME to Historic Rucker Place – Birmingham, Alabama’s premier wedding and event location!  With its architectural elegance and timeless sophistication, this venue reflects a legacy of style and taste more than a century in the making.  From the moment you step inside, or onto one of the magnificent wrap-around porches, you are stepping into an atmosphere of pure Southern charm.  This gorgeous hundred-year-old mansion commands a spectacular view of downtown Birmingham, yet it is easy to forget that the convenience of the city is only moments away.

Our gracious home boasts a versatile floor-plan and is easily adaptable to any vision, with the unique option to reserve the entire estate, or perhaps, simply a single room.  Rucker Place is a photographer’s dream – impressive interior features include original and new floor-to-ceiling windows allowing for plenty of natural light, large rooms with high ceilings, chandeliers throughout, fireplaces with ample wooden mantels, a galley-style bar, and a Grand Staircase spanning three floors.


Beauty abounds in the secluded, well-manicured garden: with its picturesque arbor covered in “old-fashioned” primroses, it is the ideal outdoor setting, and love is always in the air!  In sun-dappled daylight, sunset and twilight, or star-studded night, this romantic space is perfect for fabulous Weddings, Receptions, and Grand Events, in addition to bridal teas, luncheons, and rehearsal dinners!

Take your event to new heights in The Pavilion on our Lower Grounds….yet another Rucker Place option to meet your needs.  This 2400 square-foot tented space can also serve as the perfect rain plan, should the need arise.  Whether you desire high-end elegance or a more casual affair, this new space is readily adaptable to accommodate your signature event.

Historic Rucker Place’s own Savoie Catering offers menus built on fresh seasonal ingredients of the highest quality, sourced from local markets when available. Chef Richard Bishop and his creative culinary team can also fulfill custom menu requests with ease.  Be it a lavish buffet, an elegant seated dinner, or casual, cocktail-style fare featuring bite-sized items, Savoie Catering delights in providing an “Always Delicious” experience.

The already beautiful environment of Rucker Place can only be enhanced by the exquisite work of one of our approved florists.  The opportunities for creative design are limitless!


Indoors or out, Rucker Place is spacious enough to accommodate large events, yet intimate enough to feel like home.  We know every minute you spend with us will make a lasting impression on you, your family and friends…….because “The Art of Southern Hospitality” is what we do best!
