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.
