The most beautiful venue Savannah has to offer!!!!
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.
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!
We had our wedding and reception ceremony at The Mackey House and the venue is absolutely gorgeous. We had the pleasure of taking our family photo next the a beautiful water fountain near the garden. Dave Gibson was our Event Coordinator and he's the best. He made our wedding planning experience stress-less and our family and friends were very complimentary of him. Dave is the man for the plan and shaking a leg is also another one of his specialties. He even showed our guest some dance moves. Magnolia Grill was our caterer and their food was finger licking good. Corie and Mark did an awesome job as well as their staff. They all are the most pleasant people. Dave and Magnolia Grill took really good care of our great-grandmother as well. Last but not least, Mrs. Mackey is the sweetest. She helped fix a few bumps in the road. My family and I really appreciate her concerns very much.
The fountain is one of our newest additions to the Mackey House experience and it is becoming a popular photo location. We're glad this bride was able to use it as a backdrop for a very special family photo. It is very, very rare that we are honored to have a great-grand parent attend an event. What a wonderful moment we were able to share with this special family matriarch. Thank you Shataya and Chris for your compliments and allowing us to serve you on your special day!
The wonderful staff at Mackey House exceeded all of my expectations in assisting me and my husband with our wedding. Susanna is so sweet and always had the right thing to say to ease any worries or solve any little bumps we may have experienced. Dave was our DJ and master of ceremonies and absolutely delivered! He coordinated a wonderful rehearsal and created a super fun time for us on the dance floor (even tried to teach me the "wobble"). He and Susanna worked together so I was always able to contact someone for all of my needs. They truly made it a painless planning process. The location is breathtaking, especially at night all lit up! We have been inundated with compliments on our wedding and the venue. I've been recommending the Mackey House to everyone! And will continue to do so.
Our wedding at the Mackey House was absolutely perfect. We owe that to the wonderful staff and the vendors they recommended, in addition to the unbelievably beautiful property. It is such a unique and special venue. Many of our guests told us that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. From the people to the food to the beautiful land and property, this is truly the most perfect wedding venue. The Mackey House knows how to put together an amazing wedding and throws one heck of a party!
The people we had the opportunity to work with along the way were fantastic. Dave, the day of coordinator and DJ, is truly amazing at what he does and is such a kind and awesome person. He made planning fun. Our wedding day ran so smoothly thanks to him, and we did not have a single worry that day. We had so much fun with him along the way and especially on the wedding day! Susanna helps with much of the preplanning. She is kind and responsive and makes sure everything is in line for the big day. We loved working with her. Additionally, all the Mackey House staff members were fantastic. Everyone was smiling the entire day and kind to all of our guests. The Mackey House also makes excellent recommendations for vendors. Michelle and her team from Improvisions did our decorations and flowers. Every bit of what they did was beautiful! The food from Magnolia Grill was fantastic and all the guests raved over it...Corie, Mark, and their team made the most amazing food and the presentation was beautiful! Randy’s Beverage did our bar. They provided great service and were so friendly to all of our guests. Dave set up our transportation with Grace Limo, and they were great and on time the entire day.
I cannot say enough about this venue. It truly is the most perfect place to get married. It veers from the traditional ballroom style venue. The uniqueness and beauty of the house and property and the amazing people that work there made our day unforgettable!
The Mackey house was phenomenal, absolutely beautiful venue. Susanna was great to work with!
Nicole, thank you so much for the kind review! We were so happy to have you and Daniel as bride and groom. I enjoyed working with you. You were so organized with your planning. You also had cute favors. I loved the sweet treats. You all traveled quite a distance for your wedding. We were so happy to be a part of your special day.
The Mackey House really made our wedding so special....Dave Gibson was amazing, he really took care of us and because of him and the staff there, we were 100% satisfied with the way everything turned out....We can't thank the Mackey House enough. They are truly amazing and every Savannah Wedding should take place at the Mackey House :)
Thank you sooooo much :)
The Mackey House did an excellent job helping me to plan and make my wedding day perfect. We chose The Mackey House purely from photos online (I live in Ohio) but knew we had to make a decision to book it in order to have it during the busy Savannah wedding season. When I was able to see the venue in person (after the contract signed and the deposit paid) it was even more beautiful than the photos and was exactly what we were looking for. We wanted a sophisticated yet natural setting with lots of green and picturesque backdrops. We didn't want (nor did we need to) do a lot of decorating because we wanted the natural beauty to speak for itself and it DID! We just received some of our wedding photos back and we are so happy with them and how the setting of the venue made everything beautiful. Ladies, the greenery and trees really make the white of your dress POP in photos! The staff at The Mackey House was also top-notch. Susanna and Dave were professional and enthusiastic in helping us plan our big day. Since we were planning from afar, Susanna was very helpful in giving us info on vendors and other things we needed. Dave sat down with us to plan out every minute of the day, making sure that it was going to be exactly as we had envisioned. He also helped us to identify things that we hadn't even thought about. Having our planning meeting with him really allowed us to relax knowing that we were in good hands. We hired Dave to also be our day-of coordinator and reception DJ which I would definitely recommend. When we started planning, we didn't think we needed Dave as day-of coordinator but looking back, I don't know what we would have done without him there that day, making sure everything was going according to plan and ensuring that I (the bride) wasn't stressed! He was also our DJ and made the reception very fun and exciting. The Mackey House is the best there is!
I couldn't be more happy with how my wedding went! Dave went above and beyond, I kept changing my mind, ideas and was very neurotic but he kept me calm and made my day better than I could ever imagine. Even up to the day before my wedding, they had no issues changing everything. Susanna as well was just as accommodating. I would highly recommend anyone to have their wedding/event here. I was what you would say a "shy" bride but Dave made me feel comfortable and made sure I truly enjoyed this once in a life time day. I can't say thank you enough
The Mackey House is truly a hidden gem in the city of Savannah! My daughter and her fiancé chose this location for their destination wedding, and even though I live near the area, I wasn't familiar with it. As the mother of the bride and "unofficial" wedding planner, I was thrilled when I toured the house and grounds and met the Mackeys and their staff - their mission is to make your event the best ever! I especially enjoyed working with Susanna, their wedding coordinator - she was so helpful and responsive, and had great ideas for us. And Dave - he is THE BEST! He is a pre-wedding coordinator, the day of MC and DJ, and all around great guy - we highly recommend having him "orchestrate" your special day! He really does think of everything!
We used vendors recommended and preferred by the Mackey House, and even though we had a small issue with catering and the heaters (it was cold that night!), the Mackeys and their staff went out of their way to make sure the evening was spectacular. We are still receiving compliments from our guests on the "magical" time they had at Amy and Shawn's wedding!
This venue was fantastic!! The house was absolutely beautiful and in perfect condition. Even though it had rained earlier in the day, they had their crew clean and dry off everything before the ceremony and reception, so the guests (and bride) never even knew about the rain. For those also worried about rain, they have a covered area on-site that can be used as a back-up plan. That could save you a ton of cash if you are looking for an outdoor wedding. They work with several great vendors to make it as stress-free as possible for us. The coordinator happened to also be the DJ, and his music selection was great. Couldn't be more pleased. A highly recommended venue. A++++
We traveled all the way from Sydney Australia to have our wedding at the Mackey House. Having never seen the property it could have been absolute disaster to say the least.
Usually, people are let down when they see beautiful images of a venue online and then see it in real life only to find the pictures look nothing like the venue. The Mackey House is the complete opposite... the venue photos do not even do this beautiful property justice - It's far prettier in real life (if that's even possible! !)
The fairy lights, the ceremony space, the reception area - everything was perfection. Well worth the travel from Australia and we couldn't be happier in choosing the Mackey House for our wedding! Our guests too loved the property and are still raving about it!
PS Dave Gibson is amazing. If you want to ensure your wedding goes off without a hitch he is a MUST to hire!
My employer held an area sales meeting in Savannah this week and we wanted to have a relaxed evening out with a lowcountry boil and oyster roast at a pretty southern venue. The Mackey house exceeded our expectations. Susanna and Trey took all of my requirements down and coordinated travel to and from the hotel, food/beverage, and a live band for the evening. All of my colleagues were thoroughly impressed as the Mackey house is the epitome of an elegant lowcountry plantation. The outdoor covered area was PERFECT for our event and the oysters that they provided were such good quality. They all made an effort to make each of us comfortable and the service was awesome. I highly recommend the flaming donut stand, the best donuts HANDS DOWN.
Our group is rather high maintenance and everyone had a wonderful time. The live band really added to the atmosphere we were hoping for.
Beautiful venue, excellent customer service, and highly recommended!
Planning and executing a wedding with the bride and groom in Maryland, the wedding venue in Georgia, and the parents in a different city from the venue could have been a recipe for disaster, but our daughter's wedding at the Mackey House was everything she had hoped it would be. After visiting the the first time, we cancelled all other venue appointments because we knew Kelly and Collin's wedding had to be held there. The grounds were beautiful; the fairy lights in the trees and throughout the gardens made for a truly romantic atmosphere, and the attitude of the staff was that nothing was too difficult in making the bride and groom's day perfect. Susanna, the wedding planner was a pleasure to work with, and she went out of her way to make sure everything went smoothly, and she made all the long distance planning easy. Dave Gibson, the wedding rehearsal director as well as day- of coordinator and reception DJ, was awesome! Dave really made the party fun, and his teaching everyone the Wobble was hilarious! His hosting the Newlywed shoe game had everyone in stitches. The entire evening was well organized, lively, and most of all fun. The staff took care of every detail, and we all enjoyed a stress free ceremony and reception. Thank you for giving Kelly and Collin their dream wedding!
We take great pride in making destination weddings easy to plan and enjoyable for everyone attending. And when it's the parents who are providing their only child's the wedding of her dreams then we are especially eager to make it the perfect day. Kelly and Collin were a wonderful couple and their guests were the tops. Thank you for allowing us to do some special activities (i.e. Shoe Game, special line dances, etc.) that made it truly memorable for the guests
Mackey house is amazing! Everything was even more beautiful than we expected. It was definitely the best weekend of our lives. If you do book the Mackey house make sure to get Dave to DJ and coordinate. He's one of the nicest guys you'll ever meet and incredibly helpful. Everyone on the staff was great. You won't be let down!
We could not have asked for a better venue for our wedding. The Mackey House is an amazing place to have your special day. The venue is absolutely beautiful and they do a wonderful job of making sure it always, regardless of the season, looks beautiful. The staff are fantastic! They make you feel like family from the day you book with them. Dave is the man! He is amazing at what he does and makes sure there are no glitches on your big day. All staff members are always accessible and always greet you with a warming smile. We HIGHLY recommend The Mackey House to anyone who wants to have a unforgettable wedding day!!!
