Wedding memories last a lifetime. So why not let the Gardens Cafe by Kathy G. make your wedding reception, rehearsal dinner, and bridesmaid luncheon a most extraordinary event?

Whether your event is small and intimate or a more formal affair with hundreds of guests, the totally remodeled Gardens Café – with its brand new neutral color scheme, gorgeous flooring, modern light fixtures, and classic chiavari chairs – is a most elegant venue fit for Birmingham bridal royalty.

Best known for its large covered patio, the Gardens Café also offers an oversize balcony which seats up to 40 guests and a two-story staircase that allows brides and grooms to make a grand entrance into their wedding reception.  Plus, being in the center of the Botanical Gardens, your guests will enjoy views of the fountains as well as the romantic Rose Garden.


“I just wanted to personally thank you for the wonderful day you helped make for Morgan on Saturday. Everything from the table setup to the linens to the AMAZING food was beyond our expectations. I had so many guests compliment the food. I also wanted to compliment the wait staff. They were so professional and friendly to my guest. I could not have asked for a better presentation.
