Two Classically Elegant Event Venues in Downtown Fairhope
While discussing options for an event venue on the Eastern Shore, The Venue Fairhope and The Balcony Fairhope are two of the best. Jenna Rachal, who may be known to some as Jenna Laine Weddings, recently purchased both spaces and is using her 15 years of experience in the event industry to tailor a boutique experience for those looking for the perfect setting to host their special occasion. Jenna has an eye and passion for event design and coordination and leaves no detail untouched giving confidence that anyone who rents her venues will execute their event seamlessly.
