The SouthWood House & Cottages is a beautiful place for a Tallahassee wedding. It's perfect for large and small, inside or outside, ceremonies. The SouthWood staff are always wonderful to work with. I love officiating ceremonies at The SouthWood House.
I love the Southwood House for weddings. Not only are the cottages quaint and the perfect place for the wedding party to crash, but I love that everything is close- no traveling to do. The ceremony is usually in front of the house and the reception is usually in the back . Their communication is great, too! The grounds are beautiful , and there are tons of places for photos.
The SouthWood House & Cottages is a lovely venue that perfectly depicts the natural beauty of Tallahassee. Huge canopy oak trees and wide open plush green lawns create a gorgeous canvas for an outdoor wedding or event. The SouthWood House & Cottages are filled with charm & warmth. The staff is extraordinary and wonderful to work with. We have been providing rentals for SouthWood since they broke ground and cherish the great relationship we share.
