SouthWind can hold celebrations of up to 300 guests. Before the ceremony, the wedding party can avail of the get-ready rooms and separate cottage while they prepare for the day ahead. They can then exchange their vows and rings on the outdoor space beside the barn, while their loved ones watch from 16 vintage church pews. Outdoor ceremonies can use a wooden arbor and are accompanied by the sound of the nearby creek. Large farmhouse windows invite an abundance of natural light for celebrations held within. When the sun goes down, the party can be lit by antique chandeliers. Caterers can avail of the well-appointed prep kitchen while they ready themselves for the meal. Should the couple choose a cocktail reception, they can socialize with their guests on the large porch while they watch the sunset over the surrounding countryside. Ample onsite parking is available for guests. This venue can also be used for rehearsal dinners.

Services Offered

Couples are free to choose their own wedding services, as this venue welcomes all companies, from food to flowers.

    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鈥檛 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!
