    Perfect wedding

    My husband and I got married on October 14, 2018, and had our wedding ceremony at the Southern Mansion. Ken, our wedding coordinator was FANTASTIC! As soon as I met him, I knew that the Southern Mansion was going to be our venue, and that we were in good hands. Ken was informative, personable, and very knowledgeable. The entire staff made us feel so special and executed the entire ceremony perfectly. Denise, the manager was also unbelievable and very helpful throughout the entire planning process. Everything was perfect. If you are looking for an absolutely beautiful venue with an amazing staff, look no further!

    We cannot express how incredible our experience with the Southern Mansion and the staff have been. From the moment that we decided to chose the Southern Mansion, right up until the day after our amazing wedding, Kira and the staff were with us every step of the way. They are incredibly accommodating, highly professional, and my wife and I both felt that we were in excellent hands during both the planning process and during the wedding itself. Kira and the staff are the greatest, not even to mention the beautiful setting of the Southern Mansion. Guests keep on telling us how much they loved the venue. A lot of guests have also told my wife and I that it was the most spectacular bridal entrance they've ever seen, down the spiral staircase. There were definitely a lot of watery eyes (including my own). And also, guests have been raving about the food, since it's delicious. The chef is amazing, so go and have a food tasting! Another bonus is the location, which is just blocks away from the beach and from downtown Cape May. It was very easy for our guests to walk 2 blocks to the Irish pub for the after party (and then to the beach for another after party, which is probably illegal, but we did it anyway).
    Anyway, the Southern Mansion is truly amazing and we highly recommend it to anyone considering having their wedding there. You are guaranteed a fantastic wedding to remember with the Southern Mansion.

    I have videotaped weddings at Southern Mansion for several years and you simply cannot beat the charm and elegance of this property. Located only 30 minutes from Atlantic City, you would think you are hours away in another world. The entire staff has been helpful to me as a vendor and this makes my clients videos that much better. I love shooting at the Southern Mansion as it is as beauitful and unique a setting you can get in South Jersey. You cannot go wrong at the Southern Mansion.
