Spanish Fort Wedding Venue

5 Rivers is a gorgeous waterfront wedding venue in Spanish Fort, AL. It’s name reminds visitors that 5 rivers (Mobile, Spanish, Tensaw, Apalachee and Blakeley) flow into the Mobile Bay right at this spot. This gorgeous facility stands here as an educational resource, local outdoor gathering spot, and a wedding venue. Here, brides and grooms will find a stunning hall that can be used for their ceremonies and receptions.first look along waterfront in Spanish Fort

Waterfront Wedding Venue

With beautiful, waterfront outdoor spaces, there’s plenty to love about 5 Rivers! Perhaps one of my favorite things about 5 Rivers as a photographer is that I can allow my couples to enjoy the beautiful outdoor spaces during portrait time. With both water views and spots of trees, there’s tons of variety for the day. 5 Rivers also offers some gorgeous indoor and outdoor options for wedding ceremonies. Whether you want to tie the knot on their pier, their deck, or indoor hall, there’s something for everyone!

And don’t forget about the gorgeous Delta Hall wedding reception space! With a stunning stone fireplace and wood paneling, it’s a beautiful space perfect for rustic inspired wedding days. All of the weddings I’ve seen at this venue look so elegant! You’re welcome to bring in your own catering, alcohol, music, and decorations. Such a great option for brides and grooms in the Spanish Fort area!

I am Jessica Smith. I am a wedding and portrait photographer based in Spanish Fort, Alabama. Born and raised in Alabama, I have lived on the Gulf Coast for the most of my life. After adventures with my husband’s job in the Coast Guard, we decided it was time to follow our hearts and settle down back on the Eastern Shore of Mobile Bay. Being from Fairhope, my southern heritage is apparent from the time you meet me. My southern “twang” and my love of Alabama football are the giveaways. I am a wife and a mother to three gorgeous sons. I also love to garden and promoting wellness in the world.
