Amazing Mackey House Wedding
The Mackey House was absolutely amazing! The venue is beautiful and has great options for ceremony and reception. They were great to work with and so accommodating. All of our guests were so impressed with how beautiful everything was. Shelley was so helpful and fun. Dave was great at overseeing everything and so nice (he even shared his cough drops with me cause I started to lose my voice). Thanks Mackey House for making our day so special ❤️Sent on 11/12/2019

So happy I chose the Mackey House!
My now husband and I wanted a destination wedding in Savannah, we came across the Mackey House and fell in love with the beauty of the property. From the first email until the last the staff at the Mackey House were very responsive and helpful especially since we were planning everything through the phone, emails, etc.
We had 120 guest and utilized the lakeside ceremony location and the deck for the reception. We were nervous about the amount of people on the deck, however, their were plenty of space and it was not overcrowded at all.
Dave was absolutely phenomenal as both the coordinator and DJ. We are very happy we chose to use his services as he made the wedding day flawless and kept our guests dancing the entire night. Dave walked us through the entire process and offered his experiences to help guide us through decision making.
We used Chef Ray and were extremely happy with the food he provided. Our guests are still raving about it !! He really worked with us to provide a specific menu we wanted for our guests. I would highly recommend his services!Sent on 12/01/2019

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!
