My husband and I fell in Southwood as soon as we visited it. The pictures really do it no justice! The front lawn made the most picturesque ceremony. The bridal party and I walked out of the house and we said our 'I Dos' in front of the live oaks. The reception was at night under the twinkling lights in the back lawn. Everything was perfect. Our guests could not stop raving about how beautiful it was. We hired an on-site coordinator and she made everything so easy. She took care of the vendors and made sure everything looked exactly how I wanted it since I could not help set up. I felt so at ease during the entire process. I would HIGHLY recommend Southwood to anyone who is looking for their Fairy Tale wedding site!

After one visit to the Southwood House we knew this would be the venue for our wedding. When my husband and I sat down to plan our wedding we knew we wanted a venue that would be different and that would allow us to do almost anything to make it look exactly how we wanted it to look. Southwood staff was very flexible in making those wishes come true. We use their day of coordinating service which allowed us to plan on our own and Jessica, the day of coordinator made sure our wedding went smooth on the day of as far as contacting vendors, creating a detailed timeline as well as setting up and taking care of things needed for the day of. Jessica also conducted the rehearsal with the bridal party the day before. We also used their parking service to assist with directing guest where to park.

Our only thought after the wedding was, for a wedding with 250 people we should have made sure Jessica would have been assigned an assistant to help her. I think an assistant or 2 would have been beneficial. Overall, our outdoor wedding and reception was amazing and I would recommend using the Southwood House for any private event!

The Southwood House was the venue selected for our daughter's wedding. It had everything we were looking for in order to have a traditional Southern flair and it ended up being absolutely amazing. They were accommodating in everyway possible way to make sure everything met our expectations. In addition, the cottages were very nice and so convenient. The manager Gabrielle was, simply put, fantastic to work with!

The staff at the Southwood House were wonderful to work with during the 11months of our planning. Right up to the night before they were there to handle problems or questions that arose. I would highly recommend them not only for weddings but other large events as well!

MORE STARS PLEASE !!!!! What a gorgeous place. Along with the house and beautiful yard surrounding, the wedding planner Cara Dollinger hand delivered our wedding vision on a silver platter. I would recommend this venue to all of my friends and family just so I could go back again. The feedback my husband and I have received from our guests have been stellar as well.
