My daughter had her wedding at South Second just this past weekend and guests still can’t stop talking about it! We worked with Michelle and she was wonderful especially the day of the wedding! She made sure we stayed on our timeline, she found pens for people to use to sign the guestbook when we forgot them, she helped me place flowers on the cake when I was nervous and she personally delivered drinks of choice for me and my husband and the bride and groom right to our table. She floated around the room to make sure the day went perfectly! She was amazing!Sent on 05/21/2019
I can’t say enough about the atmosphere and the food. All night people came up to me saying what a cool venue South Second was and how pretty it looked. They were also impressed with the cleanliness. The bartenders and waitstaff were the best! Our guests never had to wait for food or drinks at the bar and service was given with a smile. The food was also A+! I’ve had SO many people tell me it was the best food they have ever had at a wedding!
My daughters wedding couldn’t have been better! Thank you Michelle and the entire staff at South Second for truly making it THE BEST DAY EVEr for my daughter and new son in law.

Above and beyond!
Had our wedding reception at South Second the last weekend of April and we could not be more thrilled with how everything went! The venue is gorgeous and unique and easy to make your own. Very open to all vendors for flowers, desserts, etc. Food does have to be through Saz's but this was not a problem for us as the food was AWESOME. One month later and we are still getting compliments on our food! Linens, chairs, and tables are also all included which is super convenient and keeps costs at a minimum.Sent on 05/22/2019
The staff was great, bartenders exceptional. Special shout out to Katie who was great especially through the end stages of the planning process. If it was possible, she was going to try to make it happen. We did a his and her's drink selection and I asked if a white sangria would be an option (expecting a no) and I got a very excited yes! All of our guests loved it, as did I! She also brought me a whole plate of appetizers while my day of coordinator brought me sangria as my dress was being bustled in the bridal suite hahaha :) Wedding Pro Tip: surround yourself with wonderful ladies.
Thank you, South Second and Saz's for helping make our wedding everything we wanted and more! You went above and beyond!

Save yourself some time and just go ahead and book this venue. South Second has everything. The staff is friendly, the coordinators actually respond to your calls and emails, and the space is gorgeous. We received compliment after compliment about the food, the space, the service, you name it. I wish we had another event to plan so I could hang out there again!Sent on 10/04/2018

I have loved working with Michelle and South Second since day one! Being able to tour the space while it was still being completed and see the final product come together was awesome. Each event I attend or coordinate has been fantastic, with the entire staff always incredibly friendly and helpful. I look forward to the upcoming events at South Second this year!
As a wedding DJ you get to try all the food from all the caterers. Saz's consistently has friendly service, outstanding organization and great food. We love doing events with Saz's.
