Making Dreams Come True

Red Gates at Kelly Creek in Odenville, Alabama, is the dream of Steve and Desa Osborn who purchased the land with the intention of building a barn to house Steve’s tractor Matilda, and eventually a home. However, after searching for a unique venue to host their son’s wedding rehearsal dinner and coming up empty-handed; Red Gates at Kelly Creek, a rustically elegant event venue, was born.

The 2 story barn was lovingly erected with materials largely sourced from the property and can host events ranging from 50 to 300 or more people. The venue offers a list of hand-selected vendors as well as expert event planning services to ensure that your experience is nothing short of magical.


Come to Red Gates at Kelly Creek and let us host your special event. You’ll see what we mean when we say this is a place where memories are made and dreams come true.

Turning a Vision into Reality

Following the path laid before me, Red Gates evolved. Magical in every way, inspired from a promise made long ago, excitement fills the air as we take this journey together.

Elegance with simplicity, we are committed to you and your special event, making your dreams a reality.
