Brianna + Cody

Everyone wants to end the year on a happy note and what better way to do that then have a wedding!

On December 30th, 2018, just 2 days away from the new year, Brianna and Cody decided that the best way to end the year was to get married at The Sterling Castle!

They were married infront of a roaring fire while family and friends watched on with smiles on thier faces.

We wish Brianna and Cody all the love, laughter, and happiness in the world!

Yellowleaf Creek Mill – Truly the best kept secret in Alabama. A fotowerks preferred vendor

Travel south down Interstate 65 to the Peach Tower exit in Chilton County and take a trip with me down memory lane. You’ll find an amazing venue filled with rustic character and southern charm – where the past meets the present.
Yellowleaf Creek Mill is an 1860s restored grist mill that remains a fixture in the community to this day. Our venue can host up to 250 guests and we can accommodate a variety of events. Weddings, Family Reunions, Corporate Events, Church Events, School Proms, Baby Showers, Bridal Showers, and the list goes on. And my personal favorite – Our Christmas wonderland with the light display ready the first weekend in December.
Listed below is some feedback from our 2017 brides:

Regan Scarbrough, February 26, 2017 – “I had the pleasure of getting married at Yellowleaf Creek Mill on February 26th. The venue itself is so beautiful in every way, from the pier to the beautiful stained-glass window. Danyula was absolutely wonderful in helping plan my event from start to finish. I couldn’t have asked for anyone better. I had the best experience at the Mill so much that when I have brides come to me about venues, I always recommend the Mill. Thank you for breathing new life into such a historical place.”

Candace Meadows, April 9 2017 – “I cannot express how perfect my wedding day was at Yellowleaf Creek Mill! From the rehearsal dinner to the reception, the staff was so helpful and easy to work with! Mrs. Danyula even asked about details I hadn’t thought of. I was so thankful for her attention to detail and organization. I rented the bridal suite the night before and everything was so clean and well maintained. I would highly recommend the venue to EVERYONE. My husband and I were completely satisfied with our experience at Yellowleaf Creek Mill and so thankful for all of the staff’s hard work and willingness to help throughout the entire process. Thank you!”

Chelsie Gilmore, June 17, 2017 – “There’s nothing I can think of that needed work. You and your staff were great. It’s a beautiful place to get married and doesn’t need a lot of decorating.”

Lydia Hill, September 8, 2017 – “We were completely blown away by the Yellowleaf Creek Mill. There’s not one thing we would change about our experience there – they made sure our special day turned out just perfect! If anyone is in search of a beautiful venue with a wonderful staff, Yellowleaf Creek Mill is highly recommended.”

Erin Bailey, September 22, 2017 – “Yellowleaf Creek Mill is absolutely amazing in every way possible. I never would have imagined that we would have such a beautiful wedding. Not only is Yellowleaf Creek Mill beautiful but the Yellowleaf Creek Mill staff is equally as amazing. They worked so hard to make sure everything went the way we wanted and helped our dream wedding come to life.”

Heather + Kevin

For Kevin and Heather, it all started on February the 11th 2010at 2:30 am in a college dorm theater, Kevin asked Heather to be his girlfriend.

They were together for the next 7 years and when February 11th, 2017 came around, they went on their usual anniversary date of Chinese food and a 10th Kingdom marathon at home. What Heather didn’t know was Kevin had been planning to ask her a very important question. So after the movie ended and they were getting ready for bed, he decides it’s time to pop the question and of course she said yes.

 They decided to get married at The Sterling Castle on December 30th, 2017. Where they had a lovely Lord of the Rings themed wedding. When Kevin saw Heather in her beautiful gown from Modern Brides, you could tell he thought he was the happiest man in the world. So surrounded by friends and family they pledged their love and life for each other on that chilly December day.

The Reception Hall was beautifully decorated with greens and red and so many Lord of the Rings mementos. Everyone laughed and danced the night away until the couple was sent off under a shower of sparklers and fireworks.


Mary + Ian

At West End Baptist Church on December 16th, 2017 Mary and Ian joined in holy matrimony. They had a beautiful ceremony surrounded by poinsettias, white roses, family, and friends.

After their ceremony, they left to the Yellowleaf Creek Mill for their reception. Throughout the night they danced to DJ Hines and enjoyed the time with all the people they love until their guest sent them off under an arch of sparklers.
