    Do not hesitate to book South Second

    We were absolutely blown away by how perfect South Second made the day go. All of the staff were friendly and focused on the details. The food was phenomenal and we received many compliments. The space itself is very cool. We had both our ceremony and reception in succession at South Second. Their team flipped the room flawlessly to the point where it was hardly even noticed. South Second had special touches as well, including a champagne bottle ready in the wedding party suite, a lovely staff member to help the bride with filling her plate in order to not spill on her dress, and staff that brought over appetizers and desserts to the bride and groom, as they knew they were busy mingling and may have missed out otherwise. 100% happy with South Second and you will be too should you choose to book them.

    Unbelievable venue with unbelievable staff

    South Second was the perfect choice for our ceremony and reception. From the initial contact to the super fun (and delicious) tasting event to every email and phone call Michelle handled with grace, patience, and helpfulness, we were beyond happy with this venue. All staff was incredibly warm and professional, the Saz's catering was incredible (many people told us it was the best food they'd ever had at a wedding by far), and the open industrial space was the perfect backdrop for our decor and flowers. We would pick South Second 100x over--huge thank you to Michelle and team for the best day of our life!
