A Treasured Forest in Wilsonville, Alabama

Rockhurst Farm is a beautiful 400 acre property registered as a Treasured forest. It is located in Shelby County off of Highway 280 East, just 30 minutes from Interstate 459. Nestled on 80 acres of the farm, you will find a beautiful wedding venue and event space. The most coveted ceremony choice is in front of the 150 year old oak tree and the large open field is another option. Either choice allows you to invite as many guests as you like to share your special day in a quiet, serene setting.

The large covered pavilion and surrounding area is perfect for your reception. Adjacent to the pavilion, you will find a barn with three restrooms, two dressing rooms and a caterer’s prep area. A large fire pit provides warmth and charm for cooler evenings.

We are pleased to offer the addition of Rockhurst Chapel in 2020. On its completion, it will sit on a hill beside a beautiful pond facing the old tree and the sunset. All areas are ADA approved.

Emma and Brian | Spring 2019 | Sam Jones Photography
I loved every single thing about working with Nona and John at Rockhurst. It was always my dream to have an outdoor wedding in the middle of a field, and that’s exactly what Rockhurst gave me! Aside from it being the most gorgeous venue, Nona and John were so sweet and helpful and relaxed about everything. I really loved working with them and would do it over all again if I could!

On the Farm

the pavilion

The pavilion on Rockhurst Farm was designed and developed in the spring of 2013. It sits on the hill adjacent to the old oak tree and next to the barn. The short distance from the tree and fields makes it perfect for wedding receptions and other events.

the Barn

Next to the pavilion is a barn which includes two dressing rooms, three restrooms (one is ADA approved) and a prep kitchen.

the old oak tree

The 150 year old oak tree near the pavilion is the favorite spot for a ceremony. The large wooden cross or the low hanging limbs can be decorated with flowers.
