    Anderson's Amazing Wedding

    We could not have ask for a better venue! One Sunday approximately a year prior to our wedding we took a chance and knocked on the door at the Southern Mansion to see if we could get some information. We were met by the Ken(he is AMAZING) whom was beyond gracious and gave us the full tour...within five minutes we were sold...we booked our wedding and the entire Inn that night for our guests. Our family and friends could not stop saying how wonderful and unique our wedding was between the beauty of The Southern Mansion and the service they received...Thank you so much Ken for everything you did to make our wedding day perfect!! We will visit you soon, Howie and Stacey

    Unique destination

    We had our wedding at the Southern Mansion and everyone was blown away! Guests loved the historic location and gardens and we loved how it fit our vintage vibe! Ken and Denise were awesome and helped us tremendously. Their recommended vendors like DJ Ken Schaefer and Shore Thing Event Services were a huge help and we couldn’t have been happier with how things turned out!

    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.
