Weddings & Events
Russell Lands is a magical place where the water's warm, the grass is green, and celebrations of all styles and sizes become events of a lifetime. Russell Lands offers an array of naturally beautiful venues, chef-inspired menus, and warm hospitality designed to make weddings, parties, dinners, and corporate gatherings truly unforgettable.
For Any Event
Russell Lands is set among Lake Martin’s more than 40,000 acres of pristine water and nearly 900 miles of shoreline. The community spans 25,000 acres of undisturbed forest with a town center that includes restaurants, a market and deli, an equestrian center, and over 100 miles of nature trails. This breathtaking location offers an array of both indoor and outdoor spaces, all naturally beautiful with distinctly different backdrops and easily customizable for each event to make it truly unforgettable.
A warm, inviting space that offers stunning views, the multi-level SpringHouse offers five distinctive venues within one. Rustic details like the stone hearth, rough-hewn beams, hand-forged ironwork, and carved granite reflect the natural surroundings. Fresh, seasonally-inspired cuisine, on-site catering manager, and exclusive use of all tables, chairs, linens, and dishware make for events of true quality and value. Please note this venue is temporarily closed due to a devastating fire in December 2023. Although there is no anticipated reopening date, we will update our social media platforms as information becomes available. Thank you for your patience.

As a Birmingham wedding planner, I am always thrilled to book a wedding down at Lake Martin. The Russell properties have brought so much to this “destination” wedding spot. Instead of having to opt for a backyard reception, you now have your pick of beautiful venues. Everyone on the Russell team is knowledgeable of what it takes to pull off a perfect wedding, and they are all a pleasure to work with.- Neillie Butler, Owner & Executive Planner | Mariée Ami, LLC

Linda was just absolutely wonderful the whole time we were planning the wedding and through the weekend. Her assistant Andrea was great too. I was really worried about the logistics and coordination, but I think everything went off well; I know the bride, groom and many of the guests had a wonderful experience. Thanks again for introducing us to The Stables and SpringHouse!- Marcie Smith, Mother of the Bride
