Amazing gardens, luxurious interiors, wraparound porches and especially the magnificent spiral staircases are only a few details to guarantee a dream Cape May Wedding ceremony!

Whether you plan a traditional wedding with all its events, or you are just looking to say “I do” in front of your close family and friends, the Southern Mansion will hold your dream ceremony in its spectacular gardens. Cape May Weddings at the Mansion will offer you a secluded exotic area even in the most crowded week-ends in Cape May.

Why should you worry getting your guests on the beach and from the beach to the reception, fear the sand in your shoes or the inclement weather? The Southern Mansion is always open to welcome your special wedding ceremony inside, in case the rain will come uninvited. Our luxurious Victorian Ballroom will be an elegant place to create great memories for you and your guests!

And to make things even easier, our on-site wedding officiant will perform the ceremony and our wedding planner will help you with all the information you need to apply for a wedding license when you get married in Cape May. Civil unions are welcome.

We would be delighted to have you here at your wedding! The Southern Mansion is truly the best spot on the shore for Cape May Weddings.

I don't even know where to begin...The Southern Mansion was perfect from beginning to end. The coordinator Kira was amazing from day 1, very very responsive to what I'm sure was 100 emails over a years planning time. The venue is breathtaking, the food is out of this world..I wish I could have eaten more wearing a wedding dress! The staff were all awesome and super friendly and accomodating. It's got a very upscale vibe with a very home like atmosphere and I've got nothing but rave reviews from my guests. It was everything we could have ever asked for .

The Southern Mansion was amazing! From the planning to the day after, Kira was so helpful and attentive. She listened to my every silly question and request with a lot of patients. We had our ceremony in the main front room. It was beautiful and super intimate. We had about 50 guests and being married in that room made it feel like we were so close to dearest friends and family. After that we enjoyed cocktail hour in the solarium and proceeded downstairs to the ball room for dinner and dancing. Everything went off without a hitch! Many of our guests stayed over and loved the rooms. They also raved about the food. We stayed in the master suite both the night before and the night of our wedding... we already booked it for our anniversary! The entire staff was super helpful and very nice. For a quaint, intimate wedding the Southern Mansion can not be beat!

Not only is The Southern Mansion a beautiful and intimate venue for a wedding ceremony and reception, but the staff is excellent and friendly as well. I had the pleasure of working with Kira, Denise, and Ken very closely over the past year throughout the planning process for our wedding that was just held on May 29th. We felt so comfortable asking any questions or for suggestions on literally every single aspect of our big day. There were times I called Kira literally freaking out about something I forgot, and she always helped me to feel calm and to figure out all the details going into our important day. Even on the day of our wedding I forgot to ask someone to hold my train and veil and the girls had already lined up for the ceremony, Kira immediately calmed me down and offered to do it for me.. without any hesitation (and she did). Kira was also outside with me, digging through the garbage (on my wedding day), to find my headpiece that went missing!!! I will never forget that... <3 The entire event went without a single hiccup. The food that was prepared by the chef was fantastic and enjoyed by all of our guests. The service during the rehearsal, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and reception was phenomenal!!! We would recommend The Southern Mansion to anyone thinking about a wedding in Cape May!! Our day was literally PERFECT!!!

The Southern Mansion itself is a gorgeous property full of amazing photo opportunities. Even though we hoped for good weather so that we could have our ceremony outside on the beautiful grounds, we ended up having the ceremony inside the Victorian Ballroom and it was absolutely beautiful! The setting was so intimate and the pictures look great! The staff did a great job as well. Every staff member was friendly and committed to making our day run seamlessly, especial Kira! Kira took over the coordinating position mid-way through our planning progress, an otherwise stressful situations for a bride to be, but Kira reassured us that she was going to do everything she could to make our day perfect. And she did! She responded quickly to all of my emails leading up to the day. On our wedding day she was just as excited as myself and our family members! She adjusted a few bumps without anyone even knowing the bumps existed and provided an absolutely flawless experience that my family and guests will never forget. The chef at the Southern Mansion made the most delicious food! My husband and his family are Hispanic so we wanted to include their culture in our food choices. The chef made empandas that were to die for, as well as tostones and rice and beans. The guests all loved the food and some made the comment "this is the best food I've had at a wedding!" Overall we are so happy and can't wait to return for our anniversary!

My daughter was married yesterday at the Southern Mansion. I can't even describe how beautiful and perfect it was. Just magical! Kira Moyer is the new wedding planner, and she was fabulous! She made our special day just fabulous! We had a couple bumps in the road and she smoothed them perfectly, couldn't ask for more professionalism. The place is gorgeous, the food was awesome, it's just so lovely. I highly recommend the Southern Mansion if you're planning a wedding.

We had our wedding rehearsal dinner at the Southern Mansion and it was lovely. Andreea, the on-site coordinator, could not have been nicer throughout the whole process. She went above and beyond for us, made excellent suggestions and helped make our vision a reality.

The event was wonderful. Everyone remarked at how beautiful the mansion was when they arrived. The food was excellent - it exceeded our expectations! And the entire staff was professional and gracious. We had to go with our "back-up-rain-plan" since it rained earlier that day and the grass was too wet. And Andreea assured us the whole time everything would be ok and it was better than ok. It ended up being better!

At the end of the evening, many of our guests sat on the rocking chairs on the porch just relaxing, enjoying each other's company as well as the beautiful and peaceful atmosphere unique to the Southern Mansion.

We highly recommend this venue and cannot wait to visit again and again! It's an absolutely stunning place.

I had my wedding at the Southern Mansion a few weeks ago and still cannot stop thinking about how beautiful and smooth everything was. The location is amazing and extremely romantic. We had a wedding with under 100 people so it was very intimate and cozy. We also had many guests stay there so it was nice to be surrounded by everyone. Andreea was amazing and extremely accomodating and responsive. She made me feel extremely comfortable and relaxed with how the plans were progressing as I live three hours away from Cape May and could not monitor everything as closely. We depended heavily on her and could not have asked for a better job. All of the vendors she recommended were amazing as well. We are over the moon about the whole experience and cannot wait for our pictures to come back as the grounds and the decor at the Southern Mansion are gorgeous. We can't wait to go back for future stays and do not have enough nice things we could say about Andreea and the rest of the staff at The Southern Mansion

Our day was incredibly flawless and stunning thanks to Andreea (Wedding Coordinator) and all of The Southern Mansion's staffs' hard work the day of our wedding. Even the days leading up to the wedding were relaxing and lovely, at the mansion, with their stunning rooms and relaxing atmosphere (and terrific breakfast too!)

Throughout the year and a half it took planning our day with Andreea, she continuously worked with us in a timely and flexible manner that always met our requests and needs. Not only did she help to coordinate our day and make sure it ran smoothly and comfortably during the ceremony, she also was hands-on throughout the entire evening with the rest of the cocktail hour and reception staff. All of the cocktail hour and reception staff were EXTREMELY kind and professional and certainly added to making our day feel magical.

The food was outstanding at both our cocktail hour and reception. Guests continue to tell us how delicious all of the hor d'oeuvres and food displays were, and are still commenting on how the filet mignon and flounder with crab imperial was the best they've ever had. Guests certainly did not leave hungry from our wedding! All were satisfied and so impressed with our venue.

We could not have asked for a more beautiful, memorable day. Our guests are still raving about how amazing The Southern Mansion and our wedding was!
