Sweet Home Alabama: Then and Now – 12 Years Later
Restaurant (Real name: La Marie’s at Magretta Hall)
In this scene we see Melanie and Mayor Hennings hugging goodbye after discussing possible wedding venues over lunch.
This restaurant was used for two brief scenes in the movie. In the first scene Melanie and the mayor are eating lunch in an empty restaurant while discussing possible wedding venues. In the second scene, which took place outside of the restaurant, Melanie and the mayor hug goodbye and that’s when Melanie notices the mayor’s assistant (aka the pushy New York Post reporter) in the limousine waiting for her.
Unfortunately, the restaurant is now closed for business so we were unable to take photos of the inside.
