Wedding at Southern Grace
XO, The Brewers
A beautiful day!
Amazing! Dream wedding
The only thing that bothered me during reception was that my drink or food would disappear. So I didn’t get the chance to finish my champagne, beer or appetizers we had on the table. I was dancing all night and mingling with guests so I would occasionally go back to look for my drink and it would be gone. If you are someone that is up and about keep it in hand or make sure to tell staff to leave it.
For our drink vendor we chose to go with was Spunky Spirits, they are not part of the package. They were okay. I didn’t like how they would ask me additional questions after I got my quote and I would answer back thinking the questions they asked were for my package and then they would send me a new quote requiring more money. Then I had to email back and say that I didn’t want to make any changes. This happened several times and was very annoying. I don’t like the feeling of being manipulated into spending more. I also never got a follow up email if any alcohol was leftover after the wedding. The contract deal states any alcohol left you take. I didn’t want to deal with the hassle so I just let it be. I wouldn’t recommend them, based solely on the interaction with the vendor. They stressed me out a lot.
The girls at southern grace, Kaitlyn and Kayleigh, are amazing! They checked in on me several times throughout the day, brought lunch, coordinated the car transport and were there to help my flower girls, helped during the ceremony with getting out the car, opening chapel doors, assisting with guests, every part of the wedding they were there. Even cleanup and gathering of my things were a breeze! A few items were accidentally left but I’d say it was because my mom was not really sure what I brought and needed back. I think we left a foldable easel stand thing and the mens basket. Nothing major. All of the main items were gathered and helped so much. My husband and I left after I changed in the bridal suite. My mom helped me get out of the dress.
All this to say, this venue is not only gorgeous and beautiful. The people here are also so amazing and sweet. I felt so much warmth being here and I can say my wedding was a dream and the best day of my life. Thank you Southern Grace for being so wonderful and for existing!! This place is so special!
