You want your wedding to embody everything you and your partner have dreamed of, and with an open industrial space like Iron City, the possibilities are endless. You can be elegant with pendant lamps, a chandelier and white tablecloths; floral with hanging garlands, white sofas and a flowery wall; or modern, showcasing the brick backsplash with candles and greenery.

“We wanted our wedding reception to feel like a big party where everyone could let loose and have fun and that was exactly what it was!

Lindy Jo Herron, wife of Iron City, Birmingham

Whatever theme you choose, The Iron City Team event planners, technicians and catering staff will work with you to bring it to life.

2. The food is exceptional

A big decision when it comes to the reception is the food. Everyone is starving, especially the happy couple, and delicious appetizers, entrees and desserts are in order. Iron City offers an extensive dining menu that couples can test and choose from, with the option to make special adjustments and discuss details with the chef. Here are some of their most popular items:

  • Mac & Cheese Station with various toppings—build your own mac and cheese? Count on us!
  • Mini crab cakes— topped with creole mustard parsley and paprika, these savory bites will have you coming back for a dozen
  • Fried Chicken Sliders—with a buttery bun, crispy seasoned chicken and a buttery pickle, it’s a true Southern delight
  • Chilli Cheese Crostini– topped with sweet pepper jelly, it’s another Southern classic that’s become a bite-sized dream

“We used their catering for the wedding and it was AMAZING. I continually get compliments on the quality of the food.

Leigh Gwaltney, wife of Iron City, Birmingham

3. The location is unforgettable + central

What a wedding, but a big party to commemorate your love with friends and family, so might as well make it an unforgettable memory. In Iron City, you’ll party in the same space where there have been famous artists, wild parties and legendary concerts.

One of the best things about this place? Convenience – You can have your ceremony and reception in one place with a beautiful aisle setup in one room and a seated dinner + stage/dance floor in another.

“My current husband loved the place. I wanted him to be part of the process and let him choose, so I gave him two options and there was no doubt he wanted Iron City. The gorgeous stage, grand staircase, and interior really sold it for both of us.

Once the reception is over, the party can continue with Iron City’s unique location in downtown Birmingham. Just a short Uber ride or walk away are dozens of restaurants and bars that stay open late.

We chose Iron City because we wanted a location in the heart of Birmingham that all of our out of town guests would enjoy. There are so many cool hotels around the site where people can stay and so many other fun places to discover nearby!

After scheduling your online meeting, you will schedule a time to take a walk and discuss food and beverage packages and room rentals. Once you’ve chosen your catered package, the team will schedule a tasting at least three months before the wedding to ensure you love the cuisine.

The staff will set up almost everything on site, from food to seating and decorations, and go over any specific details you want at your event.

“[Iron City] install the band, the ceiling lights and the cakes which arrived later in the afternoon. Once we got to reception I breathed a sigh of relief that I could stop worrying and finally celebrate.

Paige Ritchey, wife of Iron City, Birmingham
