    The Dream Venue That Has It All!

    South Second is a beautiful industrial wedding venue that has everything you need to make your special day amazing! The space can be transformed into whatever you want, or it can be left in it's original state and still be perfect. The lounge/ loft comes with many benefits. We used it as a game room with corn hole & giant jenga. It also acts as a great hangout space to get away from the craziness of the dance floor. The bridal suite is another bonus room which we used prior to the reception as a private hangout and later in the night as a safe location to store gifts. In addition to having a fantastic venue, the staff is amazing! We never felt overwhelmed or pressured. Michelle (our planner) helped us through every step - even with our unique wedding shot toast! We brought in personalized shot glasses for each guest to take home with them- also to be filled and brought to the tables prior to final speech of the night. Michelle personally took this task on, ensuring each glass was delivered to the right person - she went above and beyond to help make this work for us! Last, but definitely not least was the food! Everyone we talked too couldn't stop raving about how great the food was! Saz's provides a huge variety of catering options, and I don't think you can go wrong with anything on their menu! Overall, South Second was a dream venue.

    My husband and I could not have imagined a better venue for our reception! Michelle was so easy to work with- She was friendly, responsive, accommodating and very knowledgeable. The entire night was organized perfectly, thanks to her. We received so many compliments about the food and the venue itself. South Second and Michelle exceeded all expectations. We would not have wanted to have our reception anywhere else!

    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!
