The entire staff here were exceptional! Shelley helped me through the process of rescheduling my wedding due to a hurricane canceling my orginial wedding date. She made sure I knew all dates available. Quick responses, had her number to text her if I needed anything. They made my dreams come true. The venue has lots of natural beauty, and all their preapproved vendors were great. We used Ray’s BBQ and all our guests raved about it! Ray made my wish of incorporating the southern dish of shrimp and grits as our appetizer, which was absolutely amazing! Dave the manager on site day of made everything run soomthly and if there was ever a problem I didn’t know about it. I was never stressed or nervous about anything. They were all so welcoming, kind, caring, and made sure I was comfortable and taken care of. I could go on and on about this venue but it was the most beautiful desitination wedding ever and everyone at the Mackey house was so helpful.
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!
