About Southern Mansion

 

Amazing gardens, luxurious interiors, wraparound porches and especially the magnificent spiral staircases are only a few details to guarantee a dream Cape May Wedding ceremony!

Whether you plan a traditional wedding with all its events, or you are just looking to say “I do” in front of your close family and friends, the Southern Mansion will hold your dream ceremony in its spectacular gardens. Cape May Weddings at the Mansion will offer you a secluded exotic area even in the most crowded week-ends in Cape May.

Why should you worry getting your guests on the beach and from the beach to the reception, fear the sand in your shoes or the inclement weather? The Southern Mansion is always open to welcome your special wedding ceremony inside, in case the rain will come uninvited. Our luxurious Victorian Ballroom will be an elegant place to create great memories for you and your guests!

And to make things even easier, our on-site wedding officiant will perform the ceremony and our wedding planner will help you with all the information you need to apply for a wedding license when you get married in Cape May. Civil unions are welcome.

We would be delighted to have you here at your wedding! The Southern Mansion is truly the best spot on the shore for Cape May Weddings.

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.

When my new husband and I started our search for the perfect wedding venue it was a struggle to find something that would accommodate our vision. It was the second marriage for both of us and we wanted the location to reflect our maturity, have some elegance and beauty to it and still be able to throw a true celebration! The Southern Mansion has always been one of his favorite locations in Cape May and ultimately became the location for our recent destination wedding. I could not be more pleased to provide a rave review of the Southern Mansion, the accommodations, the food, the services and support of our lovely Kira throughout the entire wedding planning process! Throughout the year of planning our questions were always welcomed by Kira, our nerves were always calmed and ultimately the day of ran like absolute clockwork. As the full inhabitants of the mansion that weekend it truly began to feel like our home with family and friends "visiting". The space for the ceremony was magical. The solarium for the dinner was elegant. And the party space was absolutely perfect for a full rockin party!!!! The staff was helpful and friendly. The food was delicious. And this space will forever hold a special place in our heart until we return home for a visit. Thank you so much to Kira and the rest of the staff for making this special weekend so memorable and amazing!!! Love, Bill & Rachel

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.

One of my favorite places to deliver to. Amazingly beautiful venue, professional and welcoming staff... All of my brides that have had their receptions here have been very happy.

The Southern Mansion is a haven of elegance in a by-gone-era in romantic Cape May, NJ. We have worked with the Southern Mansion for many years, their sweeping lawn makes an unforgettable backdrop for your intimate seaside wedding. Their gorgeous accommodations are unique in a quaint town filled with lots to see and do. A great place for a couple who craves the very best for their wedding. We are proud to recommend them and look forward to working with them for many years to come!

We always look forward to events held at the Southern Mansion. Andreea is professional, enthusiastic and works hard to make each event perfect! We appreciate her attention to detail and her friendly, welcoming manner. The historic charm of the Southern Mansion and the picture perfect gardens make for a perfect setting for an intimate wedding, and we love adding the final floral touch!
