Southwood was an absolutely beautiful venue with helpful, professional staff, who helped make my wedding a success. Jessica was wonderful and without her timing, the events would have gone off on a tangent.

The Southwood House and Cottages is the perfect venue for a Southern wedding. We had the best time working with Jessica and her team to coordinate our wedding day! Jessica was easy to work with and always available to answer our many, many questions. Her team performed the chair relocation between our ceremony and reception, and they moved seamlessly between the two events. Also, we used Southwood's bartenders for our cocktail hour and reception and they did a great job! They worked with us on our bar menu and provided a great variety for our guests. It was the perfect day and we are so grateful for all their hard work!

Our families also enjoyed staying at the Southwood cottages for the wedding weekend. They are charming, clean and well maintained. Each cottage has the sweetest front porch with rocking chairs, a perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of coffee. I would recommend the cottages to anyone staying in the area! Also, Jim and Jason with the St. Joe crew were easily available to help us with any questions during our stay.

We so enjoyed our time at Southwood and look forward to our next excuse to visit!

We had the perfect wedding at the SouthWood House. The outdoor ceremony was beautiful and serene, the arbor being surrounded by old oak trees. The reception inside was very intimate, it's like having dinner together with our family and friends in our own house. The food and service was really good. Jessica, the event organizer, was very accommodating with all our needs.

Zach and I fell in love with the SouthWood House immediately when we saw it.The pictures do not do it justice. The huge oak trees and beautiful house is breathtaking. Ever since then our journey to our special day was fantastic. Jessica was so much help and always available when we had questions or needed help. She seriously made the process so smooth for us. The day of she made sure everything was taken care of, there was not a worry in the world! Also the crew the day before/day of/day after at southwood were fantastic, friendly, and so much help. I could have not asked for a better venue and experience. If you're getting married soon this is the place to be! SERIOUSLY! Best place/experience for my wedding.

We utilized Southwood for three different functions related to our wedding. The first was a family and friend golf outing on the day before. Jason and Matt accommodated our request for 6 morning tee times and ensured everything was ready upon our arrival. Everyone had great fun with golf and lunch in the clubhouse after. We utilized the Southwood Golf Club for our rehearsal dinner and working with Jessica was wonderful. She was patient, incredibly flexible and understanding. There were great menu choices and the food prepared was wonderful! Our wedding was at the Southwood House, an absolutely beautiful place! We had access to and utilized the house all day and evening and watched the grounds transform with all of our vendors setting up. Our dream became a reality. We also utilized the cottages which were so cute and met our every need, including the extras we requested from Jessica. Thank you Jessica, Jason, Matt and ALL the Southwood staff for exceeding every expectation that we had and helping make our wedding weekend full of wonderful memories!
