    SouthWind is THE place to get married!!!!

    From the second we set foot in SouthWind, we knew we wanted our wedding there. Ginger and Bobby made every meeting from the first walk through to the day of the wedding so special. We instantly felt like family. The location was GORGEOUS and it helped so much that you get access to all of the gorgeous decor in the barn and we didn’t have to purchase so many extras. Ginger was always available to talk and answer any of my questions. They are both VERY experienced with weddings and gave us so much helpful advice along the way. We had a few tiny hiccups on set up day and the day of the wedding and Ginger and Bobby were right there for every step accommodating our needs. I am SO incredibly grateful we chose SouthWind as our venue and our entire wedding party agreed!! Thank you so much Ginger and Bobby for making our wedding day perfect!!!!!

    We loved working with Ginger and Bobby at their gorgeous barn! They were so flexible throughout the process, as we were planning the wedding from several hours away. They were always receptive to allowing me to visit the barn when it was convenient for me; however, they were always still mindful of their wedding parties when accommodating us (if I needed to visit on a Friday, that was fine as long as I was done by noon when the venue was available to that weekend's wedding party, for example). We held both our rehearsal dinner and wedding here, and everything was great. Bobby was phenomenal and helped us hang things and set them up in the barn. We also had an issue with the rental company we used for our farm tables, and Ginger was on the phone with them fixing it so that we didn't have to worry about it! I can't say enough about how happy we were that we chose Southwind as our venue! You won't regret it!
