RARE view, unbelievable price, PERFECT!

Southport is our spot, but this venue has so many perks aside from how incredibly beautiful the view and trees are. We really want to get married under the massive trees with the water behind us, but this venue is truly a hidden gem. The price of the spot is hard to beat AND it comes with chairs and tables for inside. Which is a plus. We served liquor and getting the liquor permit was pretty easy with help from the building manager who was AMAZING. Allayna Dail was incredible. She was not the original person who helped us, but as soon as she started things got easier. I noticed the website was updated with more info and a video and that was a very nice touch. I can't say enough about Allayna. As soon as she took over managing the building, everything became a lot easier and less stressful. She was easy to get a hold of, always answered our questions or helped us with things we didn't know. She was accommodating and knowledgeable. She made our experience great. The only downfall is that you rent the building for 12 hours so depending on your time frame, you can't get in early enough for the bridesmaids to get ready unless you want to pay extra. It was not a deal breaker for us and Allayna was still accommodating when we asked about getting more time. Our day was absolutely perfect. This venue is a GEM.

Best View for a wedding in Southport

We knew right when we got engaged that we wanted to get married at the community building. Us being local, we knew the view is the best in town for a wedding. We booked it 18 months before our wedding and it was closed up until 2 weeks before our wedding. We are so glad we didn't have to postpone and it was reopened just in time for our September wedding.

The weather was perfect, the guests loved the view, the deck, the area, everything about our little town of Southport, plus the old homes/water front is a photographers dream come true. The large kitchen is great for any caterer. Our DJ brought his own lights to make the reception look more like a party, one thing the community building doesn't have is dimming lights so if you book a DJ, make sure he brings his own strobe lights because if he doesn't, the lights will stay on and it will be bright, look like you are dancing under the lights of a Walmart lol. Overall, the Community Building is a perfect place to host your wedding.

If you are planning a wedding here in Southport, call Allayna to book it. You will not be disappointed.

Vicki was absolutely fantastic to work with! We got married in July at Southport Presbyterian Church and then had our reception at the Community Building. The reservation process was very easy and then we were provided with a vendor list with exceptional vendors. During our reception the liason from the Community Building noticed that we were beginning to get low on beer and left to pick up more for our reception. The communication was awesome and we would recommend this venue to anyone who loves a beautiful beach atmosphere without being on the beach!
