Crest Farm Barn


Crest Farm Barn in Chelsea, Alabama (Shelby County), is conveniently located 3 miles from US Highway 280, only 40 minutes from the Birmingham International Airport. The wedding barn and event center are privately owned and operated by Dr. Bill Naugher and his wife, Cheryl Naugher.

The setting for Crest Farm Barn is both secluded and romantic. Looking out over a beautiful private lake, the barn and event center sit on 16 acres of lush woodland. The farm includes a secret garden, a lovely fruit orchard, a beautiful forest, a vintage red 1949 International tractor, and a traditional horse fence that surrounds a charming wedding gazebo. The idyllic country setting provides many exquisite backdrops for memorable wedding pictures.
