    Incredible! From value to answering questions, they did it all so well and made our day so special.

    From the minute we started working with South second they made us feel important. They were flexible to look at dates for us, and the staff was incredible the day of. Michelle was so kind and helped us with all of our questions and was so patient. The food was excellent and all of our guests cannot stop raving about how cool the space was if you were on the fence of booking self second don鈥檛 hesitate. It was the best decision we made for our wedding. The bartenders and managers on site were some of the kindest people I鈥檝e ever worked with in this industry.

    Best Wedding Venue!!!

    My wife and I got married at South Second this November. I cannot put into words how amazing everyone and everything was. Michelle was very responsive and always there to answer our questions throughout the whole process. Our guests are still raving about how amazing the food was and how beautiful the venue was. The bartenders and waitstaff were OUTSTANDING. If we could get married again, we would do it here!!!

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!
