There are still so many things I'm learning about this wonderful South I live in, and I never cease to be amazed at how many incredibly charming places there are! When Mr. and Mrs. Wilcox's wedding photographer reached out to me, she included a photo of the bride and groom as well as a separate photo of their darling wedding venue: Sacred Heart Chapel at St. Lawrence Catholic Parish in Fairhope, Alabama. This little white church (Little Big Town, anyone?) is only open Memorial Day to Labor Day and is the perfect spot for a Southern spring or summer wedding because it's right on the water! The chapel (and it's historic bell on the lawn) overlook Mobile Bay - can you imagine the cool ocean breeze drifting through on a sultry South Alabama evening? I've never been to Fairhope, but after seeing Sacred Heart and reading Southern Living's top reasons to go (that Spanish moss!), you can bet your hat I'll be planning a trip!
What are some charming wedding venues you love in the South?
