Our dream come true wedding

From the day we walked through the door to visit South Gate Manor, until the end of the night of our wedding the staff of South Gate Manor treated us like family. They went above and beyond to make sure our wedding day was absolutely the best night ever. They succeeded in every way. The place is absolutely gorgeous, the food is off the charts and Matthew & Chris are the two most respected, nicest, easiest people to work with. You'll never find a venue so accommodating. Till this day my guests are still raving about our wedding and how perfect it was.

11/10/2023 Wedding

South Gate Manor is hands down the BEST WEDDING VENUE. We got married 11/10/2023 and we can’t say enough good things about SGM. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous, super clean, smells great, the ballroom/ dance floor is huge as well as the cocktail hour room !!! Speaking of cocktail hour.. when I tell you the amount of food they provided is actually INSANE! And it was all delicious, every single station!! Our guests are still raving about it.
From the moment we walked in we knew it was our place to get married. Matt and Chris were the easiest people to work with, and were always attentive with our emails & calls.
Our maître D, Bobby was absolutely fantastic, funny, and professional. If it wasn’t for him I think I would’ve been overwhelmed-but sure enough he was on top of it all. He just made our day run so smoothly.
Lizette & staff were professional and always kind to our guests, and made sure everyone was okay with their drinks, etc.
I’m so happy to say our guest cannot stop talking about our wedding and the venue. My husband Greg and I want to say thank you to everyone at South Gate Manor for the amazing hospitality. We love you guys and like we said, if we can get married there every weekend we would.

Couldn't Ask For More

We were at a wedding over Thanksgiving weekend and it was spectacular! The venue was beautifully decorated for the holidays, and everything was tastefully done. The staff was impeccable and anticipated your every move. The food, from the elaborate cocktail hour, the delicious main course - make sure to get the risotto, as it's the best I have ever eaten, right through to the stunning Venetian hour, was wonderful. This is the second wedding I attended at Southgate, and you truly couldn't ask for anything more from your venue!
