131 A A Located in the heart of Birmingham's warehouse district and adjacent to both Regions Field and Railroad Park, B&A Warehouse is a venue bursting with the personality of the industrial revolution. Exposed brick walls, a soaring ceiling and unique visual elements provide the perfect setting for Suzanne Martenson of Stems & Styles to create a wedding experience that is pure 1920's fabulous. While awaiting his first look at his bride in the Bottle Room, in the tradition of classic gentlemen before him, the groom dons an ivory dinner jacket, completing his tuxedo by Mr. Burch Formal Wear. In the Jaime gown by Enzoani, featuring beautifully beaded cap sleeves and appliques, the bride is a stunning vision to behold -- complete with a golden feather headband. Specially selected jewelry from Bromberg's has a decidedly art deco feel that is perfect for the occasion. The gathered bouquet features incredible, locally grown mums. Upon entering B&A's Brick Room, guests behold a middle aisle of layered fine rugs from 18th Street Oriental Rugs and floating candles leading to an altar of towering topiaries in golden urns. For the reception, the head table is set with a plethora of varied candlesticks and floral details. A 'candelier' from PropHouse overhead adds to the gorgeous glow of the table with amaranthus hanging from the structure for a touch of softness. For dinner, the chefs at B&A Warehouse have prepared a starter of corn and crawfish fritters with creme fraiche, a California caprese salad, bourbon-glazed salmon with asparagus on top of rice pilaf and strawberry shortcake for dessert. Meanwhile, a jazz trio plays smoothly during dinner before hitting on all sixes with a lively tune. Presented on a bar cart with a bottle of champagne, the charming cake by Kim's Cakes features ruffled and gilded layers with an oversize sugar peony. As guests head out the door to meet at the final venue of the evening -- the local juice joint -- a vintage typewriter is available to leave a note of well-wishes and advice for continuing a marriage that is the cat's meow.
