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.
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!!!

The Mackey House was absolutely the best. Dave, who was our planner and dj and coordinator, really seemed to step up his game with our wedding. I never would have dreamed of something so beautiful and flawless. Thank you so much Mackey House for making our special day just that more amazing!
The Mackey House made our wedding unforgettable. I had envisioned a romantic, outside ceremony at dusk, and the lighting they provided was perfect. The scenery is absolutely beautiful at the Mackey House. Aside from the appearance, the staff is so easy to work with. Dave was a pleasure to work with as well as Susanna. Thank you so much for making our wedding perfect in so many ways! God bless you all!
Twilight weddings are very unique and special. Our landscape lighting and up lighting truly create a stunning atmosphere for a romantic wedding. We're so happy Jill and Jason chose the Mackey House as their wedding venue and pleased that they had the perfect wedding they desired.
My husband and I got married in an evening ceremony in early November at The Mackey House. It was a wonderful experience. We cannot tell you how many people have told us how organized, fun, and lovely the night was. We (along with our parents) are still receiving positive comments. On the day of the event, neither of us had to worry about any detail. We just got to enjoy ourselves, and I don't know how many couples get to say the same thing about their wedding.
We believe Gina summed it up in three words - organized, fun and lovely. As we have often stated, the bride and groom should only have to do two things on wedding day - get married and have fun. We manage all the details to ensure a prefect wedding day and provide the experience that the couple, their families and guests deserve. Thank you Gina and Matt for sharing your special day with us.
We could not have booked a more perfect place for our ceremony and reception. The Mackey House made our wedding day stress free. We were truly able to enjoy every second of our ceremony and reception. They have this process down pat! It was the easiest party I've ever planned :) The staff thinks and takes care of EVERYTHING! We were very impressed with how organized the entire day/night was.
Making it easy and stress free for our couples is one of our goals. We genuinely believe that the bride and groom should only do two things on wedding day - get married and have fun. With over 15 years experience, we can not only make the planning easy, but we can manage the event to achieve ultimate satisfaction.
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!
If there was ever a bride who was the epitome of eagerness to get married it was this one. And the groom was just as ready. Great couple, great wedding, great event!
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.
What a wonderful and gracious couple - Darcy and Phil. Everyone associated with this couple - their wedding party, their families and their guests were fun, exciting and interactive. It was a true pleasure to serve this couple.
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.
Weddings are truly a special and "once in a lifetime" event. We strive to ensure that every bride can have a fun, relaxing and stress free wedding day. The whole Mackey House experience, from the venue to the grand end of evening sendoff is dedicated to providing the bride, groom and all their guests a moment that will be remembered and shared forever. We are so happy we achieved this for Amber and Ryan.
The Mackey House was the perfect setting for my southern country wedding!! I was planning it from California and I was worried but Dave and the Mackey House took care of everything and I was relaxed and able to just enjoy our big day!!
If there's one thing we have learned at the Mackey House, it's southern hospitality. This group was fun and friendly. And the bride was so gracious to work with. We LOVE weddings!
