Amazing Venue. Even better people.
Dave and Nicole, I hope you’re reading this. You guys were STELLAR. You went above and beyond passed any expectations. We had some issues pop up on the day of, and they were able to deliver and take care of all things thrown at them. They made our special day truly special. This venue is simply amazing. If you haven’t seen it first hand, please schedule your tour.Sent on 02/27/2020
We loved this place from the minute we seen it. There’s a beautiful balcony inside that allows spectators to gaze down onto the cake cutting location. This was one of the key selling factors for us on this venue. Sadly, we were not told, until day of, that this feature would be inaccessible to us and the guests due to an undisclosed incident. Although this really bummed us out, this is truly the only bad thing about the venue. Thank you for making us feel welcomed into your place of unity.
Shane and Savannah

Everything was perfect, the house offered a great space to accommodate our guest and the landscaping surrounding the house was beautiful and very well kept. I would recommend to anyone.Sent on 09/01/2020

I loved working with the Mackey House
I absolutely loved working with the Mackey House. Everyone was so nice and made sure everything was perfect and ran smoothly. Nicole is amazing at coordinating everything and Dave kicked butt as our DJ and wedding coordinator the day of. We ended up having a few minor issues and the staff handled everything beautifully. Could not have asked for a better team to handle our wedding day. 10/10 would recommend.Sent on 09/04/2020

The Mackey House is a very elegant venue. I have been catering there for 15 years. It is a brides dream wedding venue.
I have been privileged to provide the ceremony music at the Mackey House many times over the years. Every time I enter the grounds I am amazed at the beauty of the place and the consistent professionalism of the staff. Any wedding or event at the Mackey House is, and will be spectacular.
Rustic and Serene. This venue moves you away from the hustle and bustle of downtown Savannah. Great Parking and can accommodate large groups!
