Where dreams really do come true!

Every little girl dreams of the day that she will marry, and at Sweet Gum Bottom Wedding Chapel, we provide a beautiful Alabama wedding location where those dreams can come true.

Our quaint little chapel is situated on 12 acres of beautiful countryside, just outside of Andalusia, AL. This wedding ceremony site can seat approximately 100 people. The beautiful, natural, hardwood pine flooring is contrasted with pure white walls. The chapel is appointed with antique, wood stained pews; windowpanes topped off in a triangle shape; and a natural finished ceiling, all providing a simple beauty that only nature can create.
With a wide variety of bridal packages, and the choice of either a garden or chapel wedding, your wedding will be full of memories to treasure forever. While our Alabama chapel is perfect for a more traditional country wedding, our fully landscaped gardens provide an elegant backdrop for a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony.
