My new husband and I were extremely pleased with every staff member at the Mackey House. From day 1 of planning our big day, they were so helpful in guiding us in the right direction. Planning our wedding from a distance, I thought we would encounter so many challenges, but Dave and Shelly really made everything flow so well! The grounds couldn't have been more perfect. Dave was our DJ and planner, and he did an absolutely fantastic job at coordinating everything, and making wonderful suggestions. He was such a pleasure to work with! I hope in a few more years, we can come back with our family for a much more intimate renewal of our vows! :)

My new husband and I fell in love with the Mackey House as soon as we walked into the beautifully landscaped garden area outside. From the first tour of the grounds to the second we left as husband and wife the staff at the Mackey House were beyond exceptional. They gave us the wedding we wanted at a great price. Dave Gibson is the best maitre'd you can ask for. He kept the day organized and flowing, as a bride, I never had to worry about a thing! Shelly was always there to answer my questions and concerns about anything, and I left my decorations and special instructions with her the day before at our rehearsal and come wedding day everything was set up perfectly! It was so beautiful and truly surpassed all of our expectations! They were more than happy to accommodate for anything. We had an 80-90% chance of rain forecast for our wedding day and we had decided to change the set up of the wedding and reception. The day of turned out to be absolutely beautiful and they changed everything back to our original plan last minute with no hiccups whatsoever. I cannot say enough great things about this venue and their staff. If you are considering a wedding here you will not be disappointed!

Every bride-to-be has got to check out the Mackey House as a venue; once you drive onto the property and meet the staff, you'll fall in love in a heartbeat! The entire property is breathtakingly beautiful, and the pictures turned out amazing (my photographer was Shannon Christopher). I just got married a little over a month ago, and it was by far the best time of my life. I have had so many people call me and text me asking us to get married at the Mackey House again because it was the best wedding they had ever been to! And I absolutely couldn't have done it without the help of Dave Gibson. He is the Event Director, and just awesome to work with. He runs the rehearsal, puts together the entire wedding including all the small details, DJs, and basically keeps the wedding flowing all night long. I didn't have to worry about hiring a planner because he took care of everything for me. Now we now have extra money in our budget for our honeymoon. His music had everyone dancing the entire night, even my husband's grandparents! It was priceless. And he taught us all how to wobble! Hilarious. Nothing is better than hearing, "you're the bride, it's your day," and being totally taken care of and catered to. He took away all of the stress that most brides deal with on their wedding day. Every friend of mine told me that their wedding was a blur. Mine wasn't at all. I enjoyed every second of it and had the best night of my life. Everything was taken care of. I got to marry the love of my life and dance on a glass-topped pool. I only wish it could have been longer! I always said "I want a marriage more beautiful that my wedding". The Mackey House definitely set a high standard for us, and I couldn't have asked for anything more.

If there was a way to give more than 5 stars, I would because they earned it! We had a wonderful time not only at the wedding but before and after. The Mackey House was so helpful with EVERYTHING.

We had contacted them 1 year prior to our set date, and met with Dave Gibson the DJ and with Shelly the house representative. They were extremely helpful and friendly . With so much time left to plan our wedding they stayed in contact, the whole year to make sure that everything went off without a hitch. And it did! with their help we were able to pull together 100 people composed mostly of out of towners and everyone said fabulous things to say about the Mackey House. If we could do it all over again we wouldn't change a thing! Michelle the decorator was so much fun to work with, she has great ideas and was there for us in more ways than just making the Mackey house our house for the night. Dave was indispensable for the entire year, He was very thoughtful and creative about songs and getting the right feeling we had wanted for the ceremony and then lead dances out on the floor for the reception! We wouldn't of been able to have such a great night if we had chosen another location because we wouldn't have gotten anywhere as near the personalized attention, the quality of service, the gorgeousness of the location or as stress free of an event! LOVE THESE GUYS!

I could not have picked a better venue for our wedding. The Mackey House has a strong team of professionals that made our day absolutely flawless. Dave, the wedding coordinator, is very organized and highly knowledgable. He made the event seamless and easy. There are no words to describe his obvious talent in the wedding industry. I did not have to lift a finger the day of our wedding. Michelle, with Improvisions, was our decorator and florist through TMH and anything you wanted she would execute with a "can-do" attitude. She is full of ideas and it is very apparent that she loves what she does. There were a couple instances where our original plans fell through on our end but TMH was always there with a solution. We recieved so many compliments on the ceremony. Beautifully executed.

I had my wedding at the beautiful Mackey house the 22nd of Feb. and I couldn't have asked for a better place to have the most important day of my life. The mackey house has a beautiful garden and landscape, every time I drove to meet someone or just walk around the property their were gardeners there working hard to keep the property beautiful. They work with you as far as Buddhist is concerned they call you when they just want to make sure you are doing ok, and to hear how excited you are. They made me and my now husband feel like family, and that in its self meant and will mean to you so much. Especially when you need it the most......thank you mackey house.

The Mackey House is an AMAZING place to have your wedding ceremony and reception at. The staff is absolutely terrific from the owners Laurel and Trey Mackey to the caters. My now husband just came home from Afghanistan on November 4th about two weeks before our wedding date. The Mackey's were more than accommodating for our wedding, they treated us like family. They rolled out the red carpet for this freshly new veteran and his wife. The photographer took absolutely amazing photos. The minister was incredibly sweet and held an amazing ceremony. The decorator for the wedding ceremony did a beautiful job and the wedding coordinator who also provided the music who was Dave made me feel so comfortable on my big day and took the nerves away. The wedding they provided me over did my expectations of my dream wedding I had envision since a little girl. This is the best place to get married and have a reception. If you pass up this place your making a HUGE mistake.

It was such an honor to serve this couple. Our military personnel and warrior sacrifice and commit so much to our lives that when we have an opportunity to serve them, it is with great pride and satisfaction that we do. The entire staff loved the intimacy of this wedding event and seeing the joy of the bride and groom's family as this couple was united in marriage was incredible!

Laura Mackey, owner of The Mackey House, did an excellent job preparing for my wedding day - she is not only helpful but very easy to work with and she has an eye for detail. We also used Dave Gibson - in my opinion is the best DJ/wedding planner you could ever find - Dave is on top of everything, he keeps the entire wedding on track and moving and is so involed with the entire event - we could not have had such a fantastic wedding without him! We also used The Mackey House catering - excellent choice! We have people calling us the next day saying the food was excellent, the venuse was breathtakingly beautiful, and they had never had so much fun at a wedding before. I highly recommend The Mackey House for any event!!!

Ashley and Eddie set the bar higher for fun at their reception. This bride had more moves on the dance floor than Beyoncé and her "crew" was fantastic. And was she ever eager to get her ceremony underway! The excitement was awesome. I wish I could have joined them at their after party. Great job everybody.

Absolutely fantastic experience. We conducted a "One of a Kind" wedding for our daughter and the Mackey House was absolutely the best choice. Everyone of our guests (265 of them) had nothing but "high praise." We look forward to a continued relationship with our new friends, Dave, Shelly, Laura, Greg, and Trey of the Mackey House!!

Many, many thanks for allowing The Mackey House to host your daughter's special day. As this was our first Indian wedding we were excited at the events and pageantry associated with the traditions of this type of wedding. Everything turned out to be absolutely amazing - the ceremony, the food, the reception, the party. Shraddh and Will's guests were totally fun. This was one of the best receptions we've had!

We had our daughters wedding reception at The Mackey House. It was a beautiful event. The venue was absolutely everything we had imagined. It was really easy to work with the staff. They were friendly, kind and attentive to our needs. I was impressed how wonderful they were as I know they had 5 back to back weddings on our weekend. Dave the DJ was so helpful and it was nice to have his assistance at the Church as well. Our guests had a wonderful time. The only negative was the trolley service from Downtown Savannah - they did not supply the service they had promised and many of our guests got to the reception late missing introduction and first dance. The Mackey House will have to contract with a different company!

Krysta and Matt's event was fabulous. Their wedding party was a great group that had a lot of fun and kept the dance floor busy. The church ceremony was beautiful.

The transportation issues were unforeseen and not normal for our events. There was some construction on the major highway leading from the hotel locations to the venue and there were significant traffic delays as a result. This resulted in the delays mentioned above. Furthermore, the provider that was used for this event was not our primary provider. Our primary provider was not available for this event and this necessitated us using an alternate provider.

It was such a pleasure celebrating our wedding reception at The Mackey House! The staff is extremely easy to work with; it is apparent that they work their hardest to make each bride and groom's big day truly unique and memorable. From decorations to catering, The Mackey House staff were ready to help us host the reception of our dreams. Everyone was professional and personable - very easy to work with. My husband & I are still getting compliments on what an amazing venue we had. So THANK YOU to The Mackey House for making our wedding reception the most memorable night of our lives. We couldn't be more thankful.

Making incredible memories of this special occasion is our ultimate goal. Naturally, we want to fulfill the bride and groom's vision for their wedding day, but providing a positive and memorable event for their guests is just as important. When the guests continue to talk about and compliment the bride and groom days, weeks and months after the event we know we have met our goal.

I loved working with everyone from the Mackey House. They went out of their way to make our wedding perfect. We were getting married in a location on the grounds that they had never really done before (the wooded lake side area).

I loved working with Shelley and Dave, who were basically my life line for planning the entire wedding. Shelley called every so often to discuss what needed to be done at the time. Dave was very helpful. I worked with him on music selections, discussing invitations, and many other aspects of the wedding. He was there to discuss everything with.

On the day of the wedding, I arrived to everyone finalizing the set up. It was very beautiful. We had to start the ceremony late because a family member did not arrive on time but it was not an issue.

At the reception, I enjoyed how Dave announced everything. He made sure no one would miss anything at the reception. He tried his best to get everyone out dancing but my family was unfortunately a bit lame. With the guests being a bit older, they didn't want to get out and dance. This resulted in myself (as the bride) out there busting moves on my own. Dave made sure to play all the music I selected, even replaying a song for myself and the groom.

The only issue I had was there were times I had to wait a little while to hear back from certain people. It was never too long but there was once or twice where I had to wait a week to hear back about different issues. It didn't cause any problems in the planning of the wedding at all.

In the end, we got married and every thing turned out wonderful! If you are in the Savannah area and looking for a beautiful place to get married, there is no better place than The Mackey House.

I got married at The Mackey House a year ago, and our wedding was EVERYTHING i wanted it to be!!! The venue was so beautiful & the staff are all great! We decided to have Dave as our D.J./wedding coordinator and it was the best choice i could've made! I HIGHLY recommend using Dave if you're getting married or having an event at The Mackey House! Dave was always such a great help & never once complained when i changed my mind every week haha! I even changed my music the DAY BEFORE the wedding and Dave was right on it! He makes sure the bride is happy and has the best day possible. He does such a great job making sure the wedding party is where they need to be & one time. My cousin got married at The Mackey House last week and had Dave D.J. and I could tell everyone had a great time. I got to speak with Dave and he is the nicest person you will meet! Michelle made table decorations for our reception and she did a great job!! It was a last minute need and Michelle was right on it, asking what our wedding colors were and asking what type of decorations i wanted. When i saw the table decor i was blown away at how beautiful everything was!! My overall experience at The Mackey House was amazing! Definitely the way to go if you want a beautiful, southern wedding :)

Wow, wow, wow. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this venue. All night long, people were grabbing me to tell me how much they enjoyed being there and the outstanding attitudes of all the employees. One friend even phrased it that he felt like he was at a relative's house because everyone was so eager to help and make everyone happy. They made our whole event just amazing, easy, and completely nonstressful. (and for a crazy bride, that is exactly what you need!!!)

Dave the DJ and wedding coordinator was terrific! This was our first wedding and he thought of everything. When I look back, I cannot imagine planning a wedding without his help. It was well worth the price! In my daughter's words, "It was perfect!"

Our daughter and son-in-law were married this weekend at the Mackey House and everything went perfect! From the time we first met with Trey Mackey, the entire team at the Mackey House went out of their way to try to meet all of our needs and capture our daughter's vision of her wedding day! We are so glad we used Dave Gibson, the Mackey House wedding coordinator. His attention to detail and hosting the wedding as the MC allowed us to enjoy the day and our guests without worry! We chose to use a live band, the Emerald Empire Band, who was outstanding creating an opportunity for everyone to dance! Our photographer, Ash Little captured every moment! His work up to, and the day of the wedding has been truly impressive! We look forward to the photos! Shelly was our go Mackey House person leading up to the wedding and the day of the event. She was a lifesaver, always there for us, responsive and eager to help make sure our day was perfect! We also chose David Jackson as our florist, as a result of the Mackey House recommendation. He was absolutely wonderful to work with and did a unbelievable job! He met with us several times and listened to my daughter's vision and even agreed to incorporate all the things that she had made, bought and received that she wanted at her wedding! All of the flowers, the bouquets and the decorations were stunning! We also used the Magnolia Grill Catering, another Mackey House recommendation. They were amazing! They set up the stations to fit in with Rachel's wedding theme and their food was delicious!! We had many guest tell us how wonderful the food was and they were amazed at how much food we had. I think the Mackey House and their team provided a beautiful setting, capturing our vision and provided great value for our daughter and son-in-law's wedding! We recommend them without hesitation!

If you're getting married in Savannah, look no further than the Mackey House! Not only is the venue absolutely BEAUTIFUL, but the staff becomes like your family! The grounds are magical in any season, with that old southern house charm and gorgeous gardens and ponds in the back. We planned this wedding from Ohio and only went to the Mackey House ONCE. But if we couldn't have made it down there, we still could have planned it all just as perfectly as it was! Dave is the DJ/Wedding Coordinator and you won't find anyone better to make your wedding dreams come true. Between Dave and Shelley, you tell them your wedding vision, and they make it happen--no matter how unique or complicated or simple! As Dave said to me "Let me take your anxiety away and give you an amazing wedding." And that is just what happened! Our day could not have been more fairytale and perfect, and it's because of the Mackey House! We even had an issue with the florist--some of our boutinneires were wrong and our arbor we were getting married under was also wrong! But the staff didn't let me panic--they fixed the boutenierres on the spot, and made the arbor into something absolutely beautiful and even more amazing than what I had originally planned! During the ceremony and reception, the staff was busting their butts to make everything go smoothly, and they always had a smile on their face. It's not just an amazing venue that your guests will talk about forever: it becomes like a part of your family :)

When our daughter was looking for a place for her wedding and reception there were a few things in particular that she was looking for:
*A nice spot that was not outrageously expensive
*A place that would take care of everything...like decorations, set-up, clean-up, etc
*A place located in an area people would be interested in traveling to.
With The Mackey House we found everything we were looking for...and more.
Anne and John Kaminski
The location minutes from Historic Downtown Savannah made a perfect destination. We had a fun weekend seeing the sights in Savannah and capped it off with a great wedding celebration at the Mackey House.
May in Savannah is lovely...and nowhere was that more obvious than the grounds of the house. The green trees, the flowers....the fountain...beautiful by day and then lit up at night for a festive touch.
The Mackey House has vendors that they work with and/or services available...but they are also open to working with others.We used some of theirs and some of our own...everyone worked together just fine. We took advantage of the "resident" DJ- Dave...who basically ran the show. He had everyone where they needed to be and when they needed to be there and kept our party going from the start of the ceremony to the sparkler lit send-off at the end of the night.
Everyone who came enjoyed the celebration and the beautiful location.
We certainly recommend it to anyone looking for a special spot for their own celebration.

I just want to thank The Mackey House very much for letting us use there venue and for handling our reception last month. We greatly appreciate it! We received tons of compliments on our reception – not solely on the food or how smoothly everything went, but also on the beauty of the house itself. We couldnt have picked a better venue!

When my daughter got engaged the one thing she was adamant about was having an outdoor wedding that was true Savannah. The grooms family were all coming in from out of town. I found your website and had her check it out, she was sold. We visited with Fred and Dave, the wedding coordinator and DJ, and I couldn't have been more pleased...most of the work was going to be done for us. The wedding day itself it began to sprinkle just before the ceremony was to start and at that time Dave gave us the option of moving it into the beautiful Pavilion but, my daughter wanted it in the garden so immediately there was umbrellas being brought out to the guests and beautiful white parasol for the bridesmaids. Great photo pictures! The rain ended as the ceremony ended and smooth sailing after. Dave was great! Shelley and Laura couldn't have been more accommodating, making sure everything was perfect! We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful setting and night to remember always! Thank you for everything!

As the mother of the bride, with a daughter planning a destination wedding at the Mackey House, I was a little concerned how things would turn out. My fears were unfounded. I could not have asked for a more beautiful wedding for my daughter. My family and friends are still talking about how wonderful the wedding was. The home and grounds were beautiful and the food was fabulous. Dave was great and went over and above to insure that the wedding was how we had envisioned.
I would not hesitate to recommend the Mackey House for the wedding of your dreams!

The Mackey House provided a exquisite venue for our daughter’s wedding. The grounds were absolutely gorgeous and provided beautiful views for all of our wedding pictures. Mrs. and Mrs. Mackey are well-organized and have a great staff that work tirelessly to accommodate their guests. It was so nice to have them coordinate the decorating, music, catering, etc. Dave, the DJ, was a very helpful and efficient wedding coordinator. The reception was wonderful, and the food was exceptional. Our only complaint was that the July weather was hot for an outdoor wedding but they did have a fully air conditioned pavilion and great air int the house. Had it not been for the heat, the day would have been perfect! Our experience at the Mackey House exceeded our expectations, and we were so pleased with our wedding day experience.

The Mackey House did an AMAZING job with my wedding. They take care of SO much and are so helpful that I was able to enjoy my day without worrying about details. They were very flexible with details that I wanted to add to make my wedding unique. For example, I designed my own center pieces instead of using theirs and fully expected to have to set them up myself. However, at the rehearsal they let us know that we could set one up as an example and they would do the rest! They also let us put pictures of ourselves all over the house so that it looked like our own home. They put up flowers and paper lanterns in my color scheme without me having to ask. They worked with my wedding band to make sure they sounded great. The food was AMAZING. I would recommend them to anyone getting married in Savannah!!

I want to get married again! Oh, same husband but I want to get married at The Mackey House! This is Savannah's best kept secret but it should not be. This house is a photographer's dream! From the large Spanish-moss dripping trees out front to welcome your guests as they arrive to the fountain in the middle of pond that has beautiful white ducks swim across. I love to photograph brides on the white picket bridge that covers a small stream for beautiful, breath-taking photos. Below inside is a spacious changing area for brides and grooms and upstairs that holds several hundred people. The dj is fun, The Mackey's are a wonderful family that go above and beyond to make sure your wedding is your dream come true. Can't argue with experience! I am honored to be their wedding photographer. Jamie Dream Weaver Photos

Crystal and I cannot thank you enough for opening your beautiful home to us on our wedding day. We Got married on May 14,2011 in the pavilion located on site. After we just moved up stairs for the reception. The transition was easy for all our guest and their was even an elevator for some of the grandparents! If you are looking for a truly southern venue than look no further! This Place is simply beautiful. Fred and Laura Mackey are some of the easiest folks to work with when it comes to planing a wedding. The wait staff are very professional and nice, the food is to die for and the DJ is GREAT! If you are looking into outsourcing your DJ please give Dave a look. Not only is he really nice, funny, and gets the crowd going, he knows the lay of the land and since he has been performing weddings there for a long time he can act as your wedding “planner”. He truly has a confidence about him and really knows how to make all your transitions go smoothly. We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding or better people to host it. Thanks again Fred and Laura for making our special day come true!

We had our reception only at The Mackey House & it was SPECTACULAR!! I love this venue! The owners are great to work with & so accommodating. We live in Atlanta & they made themselves available on the weekends we were in Savannah to meet with us to make sure all the plans were set. I was never the girl with this fantasy wedding idea in my head & Laura was great at just making it all happen for us. I honestly had very few ideas on the particulars & I just left it up to her team to fill in all the blanks. They did a wonderful job & I couldn't have been happier. DJ Dave did a fabulous job at the church helping with music & coordinating & then being the MC for the night at the house. I couldn't have done it without him guiding us. I look back now & wish the reception had been about 5 hours longer. :) We had a fabulous time in that beautiful, big house. It was really cool to have the pool covered & to be out dancing on it. This gave us a ton of space to party. The food was amazing! I have heard nothing but good things from our guests. One big plus for anyone familiar with the gnats in Savannah, they have none at the Mackey House! This was a huge win for us after looking at places down at Tybee and getting eaten alive, then going out into the woods to this beautiful house & not one bug bite. WIN! I now have a friend looking to get married there. Keep up the GREAT work Mackey's! Thanks again!

The Mackey House made our day the most magical, perfect Savannah wedding we could have ever imagined. Their venue package includes SO much. They're the best value we found by a landslide, and you sacrifice NOTHING. The Mackeys are warm, sweet people -- as are everyone who works with them. We selected their in-house DJ/MC/Director Dave, and that shouldn't even be a question for you. Dave works directly alongside the Mackeys, and he is integral in the operation. He's a fantastic planner, and he's a true God-send when it comes to keeping things smooth. Our family and friends were as blown away as we were at our rehearsal, and he calmed everyone's nerves. The only thing we struggled with was we are both working professionals and we didn't have a wedding planner, so our preferred method of contact was email, but that was not their best method of contact. However, that was more reflective upon us than them. When we called, they answered or responded within a day. Our night was perfect, and planning was SO easy.

We had our May 3rd reception at the Mackey House and we could not be happier with our experience. We worked with Shelley and she was absolutely delightful. On our big day, every single guest was just floored with how beautiful the venue was. And we were thrilled with not only how beautiful it was, but with how smooth our entire event went. There is not a single thing that I would have changed or wished to be different. It was such a lovely evening and we are so grateful for everything they did to make our reception such a success!!

The Mackey House responded with the following comments:

We work hard to maintain a fresh and unique look to our facilities and grounds. We love the reaction and expressions we see from guests when they first arrive. But our biggest satisfaction comes from the bride and groom when they tell us their event was a job well done. Thank you, Elizabeth and Josh.

The venue turned out to be absolutely beautiful! We had our ceremony in the garden and the reception in the outdoor pavilion. It threatened rain (100% forecast the night before), and Laura Mackey was so easy to work with when it came to having a backup plan! Turns out, it rained all day until about 2:45 when we arrived to the venue, and it stopped until after the reception! Nonetheless, everybody was very flexible when trying to plan a solution for the rain. I priced a variety of venues in the Savannah area and though it sounds expensive at first, the things they provide (including the set up and break down, tables, chairs, linens, etc) make it about the same as DIY at a much cheaper venue. We brought in outside catering from Paul Kennedy (highly recommend) and it worked out perfectly. The only negative I have is that I had set up a meeting to see some of the things they had to provide for centerpieces (which they advertise they have), and the woman I was supposed to meet with wasn't there and had left early for the day. She was then supposed to email me photos of the options, and I contacted her multiple times, but never received any photos. I just prepared ahead and did my own centerpieces. Other than that, our experience was flawless!!

Our wedding was so well planned out and everything went perfectly thanks to the Mackey House. It is a beautiful venue and they are all very accommodating. After our initial visit, they allowed us to go back several times for planning sessions and made sure we got everything we wanted and more. There was a small hiccup with one of the servers, but they handled the incident and our guests were so pleased with everything. We would definitely recommend the venue because of the all encompassing services they provide and because the owners are such a sweet couple.

We chose to have our ceremony at the Mackey House because we wanted an outside venue and they have the most gorgeous grounds. You have so many photo opportunities and the people there are so nice and will accomodate you in whatever you need. They also have a beautiful covered fireplace where you can get married if you don't want to be outside. We got married on a Friday afternoon and it was absolutely wonderful. They decorated the place exactly the way we wanted and it turned out beautifully. If you are looking for somehwere beautiful to get married this is definitely the place!

The Mackey House was a beautiful setting for our wedding. The landscaping was excellent and the covered pool for dancing was spectacular. My only con is that they were slow to respond to us via email or phone. They did not make constant contact until about 2 weeks before the wedding which made me extremely nervous. Dave Gibson, the DJ and MC was the best part of the evening. He made sure my husband and I were in the right place at the right time and that everything ran smoothly.

First off, the Mackey House was a beautiful place to have a wedding (or any event for that matter). We couldn't think of a better place to have had our wedding. That being said, we did have one big complaint... they want to be a one-stop shop. They "strongly suggest" you use their wedding planner, dj, catering, etc... and if you don't, you pay a ridiculous fee. While this is a great thing to offer, it wasn't what we were looking for. A wedding is a very personal event and limiting our vendor options made us feel trapped. We paid the fee and found our own amazing vendors (and at a price we liked much better.) The only other thing I would mention as a negative is their poor responsiveness. When we did get a hold of them, they were great to talk to... it can just be difficult to get them to answer the phone. In the end, the Mackey House is still an amazing place to hold a wedding, and we would recommend it to anyone.

We got married in the summer of 2011 and were blown away with how beautiful the Mackey House was. The flowers were perfect, the house was gorgeous, and the lawns were groomed perfectly! Everything was wonderful except for the wedding planner provided by the Mackey House. His name was Dave, and we were required to use him as the coordinator. I am a super organized, plan it out type of person, so I gave him everything that he needed through itineraries, song lists, table placement setup, numbers for my vendors, and the list goes on. Still, things were miscommunicated. I decided to do all of the 35 centerpieces myself and the Mackey House said that I could use their freezer, so we spent over ten hours on Thursday arranging centerpieces, and we made use of their freezer. Yet, I get a phone call Friday morning that ALL of my flowers froze in the freezer overnight and had all died. So, all of it had to be redone the day before the wedding which made for a stressful day. On the day of the wedding, the ten people that I had (friends and family) to set up the centerpieces and get last minute decorations up quickly got irritated with the staff. To sum it up, tables were not set up by the arranged time, Dave had misplaced some of my documents for songs and such, no linens were out, we were 10 tables short, and 50 chairs short. Although I did not let it ruin our day (because we were still getting married and that's all that matters), it certainly could have been a lot smoother.

So if you're looking for the most beautiful outdoor wedding spot in Savannah, this is it! Just make sure to use your own coordinator and MC/DJ to reduce bumps in the road!

I was planning the wedding from out of state and had a hard time getting the information I needed in a timely manner. It seemed as though there was a disconnect in the communication and just needed more organization. Luckily, everything came out great on our wedding day and I can truly say it went off without any flaws. Dave, the DJ that they recommended was really great and every one had a great time at our wedding and loved the venue.

This location is absolutely breathtaking. I had SO many people tell me how this would be the type of place they would want to get married.

That being said, the employees and family that work for the Mackey House are unprofessional and disorganized. They were very difficult to work with. We would be told by one person, Trey Mackey, one thing, when in fact, something entirely different would be true.

For example, on the initial tour, Trey explained weddings (ceremony and reception) generally lasted from 6-10. I said I wanted to start at 5:30 (mainly for outside light purposes), and asked if that would be okay. He said that would be fine to start a little earlier, as long as we were done by 10. We operated under that statement with regard to the rest of wedding planning. Then on the DAY of the wedding at 9:30 p.m., the Mackey House (and Simply Savannah Events my wedding planner), started trying to shut down the band and stop serving alcohol, which made no sense. Luckily, my mother was able to get it under control and we were able to stay until 10:00--but it was not the most fun thing for a bride and her mother to have to deal with on her wedding day.

Another example, when we met with Trey that first time, we told him we would have about 150 people or so and that we had already hired a band (the Dickens through Sam Hill Entertainment---HIGHLY recommend both). We asked if the porch would be able to have all that plus a dancefloor, he said definitely. However, in December or January, when my mother went to visit, she was told by someone else that there was no way that would fit up there and we would have to be in the Pavilion. This caused us to have to rent a stage and dancefloor, which was fine, but an expense we would have liked to know PRIOR to determining the venue.
There are several other examples of this, however, again the place is absolutely beautiful, the house, the grooms/bridal suites, and really everywhere is lovely.

The Mackey House responded with the following comments:

We here at The Mackey House strive to offer brides and grooms the most memorable day of their lives, so it does sadden us when we hear that expectations were not met.

In this instance, we did note that the bride could have her band on the deck but later, unfortunately, had to rescind this due to the band's size. We deeply regret this and have since apologized to the bride and have put policies into place to ensure this doesn't happen again.

From our initial communication with prospective brides, we are clear to state that our contract stipulates that all brides receive a four hour rental window for their event. The majority of our weddings do run 6-10pm but we were happy to be flexible by offering to start earlier. From there, it appears as though there was confusion as the contractual window so when it was brought to our attention the evening of the event, we quickly, and without argument, agreed to extend the reception until 10pm. Ultimately, we are confident that we did our very best to accommodate.

We have had the privilege of hosting well over 450 weddings over the years, and would be happy to offer brides as many references as they would need to make an informed decision about selecting The Mackey House. Additionally, if anyone has further concerns regarding the level of service we give to our brides, we always welcome them to contact us directly to discuss.

Best regards,
The Mackey House

From the moment we signed the contract with the Mackey House, it was impossible to get in touch with anyone. Then entire staff is unorganized and the follow-up was terrible. First, after we paid the deposit, it took us over 4 weeks of phone calls to get them to send us the contract on the site they talk about in the sales process. Then, I would try to organize the event and I couldn't get anyone to call me back. We hired Dave, who was not worth the money, and he never returned any emails. It took him over 8 weeks for him to respond to an email I sent 3 times to him. He also would not respond to calls for multiple days. Anyway, throughout all of this, I had hoped that they would just pull through the day of because of all the good reviews they had received. Well, 2 days before the wedding, I got a call and was told that the rehearsal date needed to be moved because they booked another event the day of the rehearsal 3 months prior to that. They did not feel it was necessary to call me to let me know this change until 2 days before the wedding. As everyone knows, invitations to the rehearsal as well as the dinner are sent out at that time and because I had out of town guests, it was difficult to change at the last min. The day of the wedding ran ok for the most part, with the exception that it rained while we were there and they did not dry off the dance floor. My dress got soaked walking on it and I was very concerned about my 70 year old grandfather who could have slipped on it. They left everything wet. The second thing is that Dave completely forgot about the garter and bouquet toss! I remembered when I went to the restroom and saw the garter was still on my leg! I had to remind him to do it and by the time we did it, most the guests already left. I loved my wedding and my husband, but if I could change anything, I would not choose the Mackey House again. The upmost unorganized group of people I've ever dealt with.

The Mackey House responded with the following comments:

Regretfully, there were delays in some of our response times to this bride due to some upgrades and transition in our management software and staffing. Additionally, during the early part of the planning process, Dave had a death in the family which took him out of the office for an extended period of time. Additional resources have been put into place to ensure more timely follow up with communications. We take full responsibility for the change in rehearsal time. Our scheduling system did not flag the conflict and it was not discovered in a timely manner. This issue has since been resolved. Unfortunately, we cannot control the weather and had some significant rainfall during their event. Our staff responded quickly with drying operations and we managed the event as best we could with the weather. The bouquet and garter toss were not forgotten, but simply was delayed because of the rainfall. The bride and groom indicated at the end of the event that they were satisfied with the day of services and we are somewhat surprised by this review. We strive to provide every bride/groom a positive and fulfilling wedding experience continue to improve our services. We feel the many positive reviews we have are truly reflective of what our client's can expect.
