Congratulations on your engagement, and thank you for considering The Mackey House for your wedding! We welcome the opportunity to assist you in creating your special day as one filled with happy, life-long memories for you and your guests. We are conveniently located about 5 minutes from Historic Downtown Savannah in a beautiful southern landscape showcasing the best the South has to offer.

The Mackey House is located on a 440-acre former working dairy farm. This authentic southern venue is still a family affair in true southern tradition as the farm is still owned and operated by Mr. Martin’s daughter, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We love this venue, and we know you will too!

The Main House is a large, colonial-style home with a recently expanded 4,000 sq. ft. deck. Our Pond area provides a fairy tale setting for any wedding ceremony, reception or cocktail hour. The Gardens are lined with tropical ferns, palm trees and beautifully manicured flowers. Wooden swings and rustic wrought iron garden furniture is spread throughout the property. Adjacent to the Garden is our 3,000 sq. ft. Pavilion which is quietly tucked away under shady pine and oak trees. The Outdoor Pavilion along with our covered deck can accommodate events all year round.

Our venue rental includes ceremony and reception locations, host, linens, tables, chairs, set up, and more. The venue rental depends on several factors including the number of guests, day of week, and time of year.

Cant wait to hear from you! Trey@mackeyhouse.com, 912-234-7404 Read less

This is a beautiful place hidden in a one-of-a-kind forest-type scene. Dave, the director, made us feel very welcome from the start! I was not able to check the venue out first-hand with my sister (the bride) but I did see it for the first time at the wedding rehearsal the night before. Dave was very timely as well as efficient in going through the rehearsal with us. He was very personable and approachable, so we felt comfortable to ask him any questions as necessary. Besides this place being absolutely gorgeous and nostalgic with its rustic, 17th century feel, the staff was always available on the day of the wedding and provided last minute accommodations for us because of some mishaps on our end (ex: we forgot our own paper plates so the catering staff provided us some, etc.). We took photos after the ceremony and the scene was absolutely gorgeous and neat. It was overall just such a blessing of a day, not to mention Dave wears many hats like Dj-ing , being the MC, leading the wedding games, and honoring the people in their positions (ex. Acknowledging the roles of groomsmen and bridesmaids and making us feel welcome). Everything was fantastic and we truly enjoyed ourselves. More importantly, the bride and her groom enjoyed that special day! Thanks for such a great experience and may God bless your venue and company for more weddings to come your way!

We agree! But more than the beauty is the uniqueness of the venue - gardens, lake, pavilion, party deck and more. A couple can truly choose the setting that matches the look and feel they wanted for wedding day.

This is a beautiful venue filled with a true southern experience. The staff was beyond incredible and made sure we were satisfied throughout the event. Dave, the wedding coordinator was a gem for us. He worked incredibly hard to make sure we were satisfied. I would recommend this venue to anybody! On top of the great experience, it was the most cost efficient venue in Savannah and the surrounding areas.

Let me start by saying Dave Gibson is a God Send. We began our wedding journey with the Mackey house with Susanna, and then through another, and then through another which became extremely frustrating. Dave stepped in and completely took over our entire event. He is a fantastic DJ as well! I completely forgot to send him my playlist in the midst of things so dance music (besides our special moments pre-planned) all night was all him and all great! The venue itself is one of a kind and having a mostly out of town guest list we wanted something to impress and we got that! They did a great job with giving me amazing vendor recommendations and are totally worth the money! Thank you for everything Dave!

I just had my wedding here on June 17, and I must say The Mackey House is truly amazing! Everyone was so helpful and accommodating to every change we had to make due to the weather. It was a magical place to be and it was everything we could have wanted and more! I will recommend them to all of my friends because they were so professional, personable, and made us feel so special on our most important day!

The Mackey House made my dream wedding come true! It is an absolutely gorgeous venue... The perfect place for a beautiful Southern wedding. Also, do yourself a favor & hire Dave as your wedding coordinator & DJ. This man knows his stuff!!! From the ceremony to the reception, everything was well orchestrated & played out seamlessly. I felt so at ease the whole time knowing he had everything under control. Dave has such a charming personality & my family & I just loved him. Hiring Dave was probably one of the best investments that my parents & I made during the whole planning process. Thank you to The Mackey House for making our wedding day one that we will never forget, and thanks to Dave for everything!! Keep up the good work... You're awesome!!! :-)

I can't say enough about this beautiful venue! They have thought of everything to ensure your wedding day goes smoothly, Everyone on their staff is a pleasure to work with especially Dave and Susanna. They kept telling my husband and I that only thing we had to do on our wedding day was to let someone else worry about things and enjoy ourselves and we did just that and we had a fantastic day! The Mackey House was PERFECT and we am so glad we chose it for our wedding!

The Mackey House responded with the following comments:

We always tell our couples, their job on wedding day is to do just two things: Get Married and Have Fun. We're glad this couple was able to do just that. Wedding day should be full of joy and celebration for the bride, groom and their families. We truly are excited when we provide a wonderful event experience for our couples.

There truly aren't words enough to express how wonderful our experience was at The Mackey House for our late June 2015 wedding, but I'll give it a try. From the moment we set our hearts on getting married at this venue, the entire staff became very involved in helping us to plan out every detail of our perfect day. Susanna, Shelly and Dave were more professional and responsive than we could ever have asked for and they truly made the daunting task of planning a wedding very enjoyable. They gave us wonderful recommendations for vendors, helped find the perfect place for every little DIY decoration I had prepared for the day and made sure everything leading up to the wedding was very clear and well planned. They even helped facilitate incorporating my quirky 1950's theme into every detail in the decorations! Dave was our coordinator and MC and he made sure that each portion of our day went off without a hitch-- his presence and professionalism was an absolute blessing! The Mackey House was the perfect place for my husband and I to start our new life together and I can't thank them enough for such a wonderful experience!

Sometimes we have trouble finding the right words too, lol. But Megan pretty well summed it up in describing our dedication and effort to ensure the bride's wedding day vision becomes reality. And the '50's theme was awesome. We truly love when our couples have a unique theme or style that makes their wedding day awesome. Megan and Michael are going to have a wonderful life together!

My daughter chose the Mackey House for her destination wedding, and we could not be happier with her choice. We worked with Susanna and Dave by phone prior to the wedding, and they were wonderful. When we arrived, they continued to meet and rise above our expectations! We really enjoyed the food - great chef! The ice cream bar was a wonderful treat! Dave was fantastic! As the day progressed, we felt that he was our very good friend who attended to every detail...a job well done!

The Mackey House responded with the following comments:

Sometimes when the bride/groom choose to have a destination wedding the parents worry about managing and planning the details and logistics of a wedding in a location they are not familiar with. As Mary Lou indicated in her kind remarks, we strive to make destination weddings not only easy to manage and plan but a fun and fantastic event for everyone. Being able to immediately put parents mind at ease and eliminate the worries of managing a destination wedding is our main goal. We're so happy Karyn and Jason had the experience they wanted and deserved on their special day.

Words cannot describe how thankful we are for ending up at The Mackey House for our wedding! Dave and Susanna were extremely helpful throughout the entire process and for the most part, were very responsive with their emails. I was worried because I was planning a wedding while living 4 hours away from Savannah but they did everything they could to put my mind at ease. Our first planning session with Dave was long and detailed, but he truly thinks of everything, not to mention he is a great DJ! It was truly wonderful having a DJ who was also our day-of coordinator moving us right along through the night. Many of my guests complimented us on how easily the wedding flowed and there weren't any issues. I definitely recommend paying for an extra hour because it goes by so fast!! I wish we had more time during our reception because you don't realize how many little things happen! (toasts, cake cutting, dances, etc.) The Mackey House is beautiful so spending money on flowers and expensive decorations is not necessary. We also enjoyed how this was a "one stop shop" meaning our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception were all in one place so our guests weren't required to move anywhere. Dave and Susanna suggested all of the vendors we used in terms of catering, florist, decorator, bar, and transportation- none of which disappointed at all. Thank you Dave and Susanna for helping us design the wedding of our dreams! Everyone had an amazing time!

Thank you Marissa for your compliments as well as letting us know how satisfied you are with our services. You're right about the long and detailed planning session, but the success is in the details. We take great effort to not only ensure all of the details are properly planned, but to provide creative suggestions that makes an event special and unique. We can truly say no two weddings at the Mackey House are alike. Our facility and amenities offer so many opportunities to "think outside the box" and create a "one of a kind" wedding.
