About

Located just north of Mobile, Kirk House & Gardens specializes in social gatherings of all sorts which are held in both our historic home and heirloom gardens.  Our spaceous property is graced by ancient live oak trees and plants collected by six generations of the Kirk family.  Conveniently located just off I-65 North (Exit 19), we serve surrounding communities as well as families from as far away as Pensacola to the east and New Orleans to the west.  Family lore holds that the first wedding held in the Kirk  home was in the early 1920s.  Since 2000, we have been greatly honored to host over 400 weddings, numerous corporate meedings and dinners, as well as graduation, birthday, retirement, sweet 16, Christmas and New Year' Parties.  Our quiet and peaceful setting also allows us to host more somber occasions such as memorial services.   Rentals include setup, breakdown, use of tables, chairs, linens, lighted parking, special parking for caterers, changing rooms for wedding parties, rehearsal and photography time.  Other items such as 16x16' dance floor, 10x10' lighted canopy for DJ or food, and a 20x40' rain tent are included in some packages or available for rent.  Parking assistance is also provided for larger gatherings.  We have recently developed a special package for brides planning very small weddings (50 guests or under).  This package consists of the same services as larger weddings, but is limited to five hours.  So far, the reaction to the five-hour package has been quite enthuastic.Sometimes we refer to the ambiance of this home and gardens as "Delta Weddings" or "Delta Gatherings."  This concept is based on our location in the Mobile River Delta and a short story by Edora Welty entitled Delta Wedding.  In this story, a southern family located in the Mississipi River Delta comes together to celebrate not only the joining of the bridal couple, but the coming together of the families and friends who help set up the festivities  Ms. Welty painted such a lovely portrait of our deep south custorms, that those of us who work here began calling our weddings by that name.  The reminants of this life style still remain here even though some of our guests have remarked that the atmosphere is more "Napa Valley" or "Southern France."  What ever you call it, we strive to make your special occasion the most special one possible.
