  • This venue could not have made our wedding any more easy or beautiful. With a ton of options to choose from and an amazingly accommodating staff and some of the best wedding planners that made our day a breeze, nothing could beat these guys.

  • Steven and I were so impressed by everything the day of the wedding! The barn itself is so beautiful, but then to see the things I had picked out and brought in scattered around the barn just made it that much more personal! All of the florals were beautifully arranged and I wished I had had the time to smell and touch each arrangement! I absolutely loved my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets! They were exactly what I had envisioned in my mind! ? The food that I got to eat was delicious, especially the biscuit with sausage and gravy-that was our favorite! ? People have told me that the rest of the food was divine too, and I believe them! Also, I heard there was a cake emergency, and Chef Angela handled it like the pro that she is-I had no idea what had happened, but when I saw the cake, it looked just right! Also, thank you to both you and Kristen for everything the day of! It all seemed to flow and run smoothly, and I think you all had a large part in that! I appreciate t... Read more

  • Southwind Hills is not only a gorgeous venue, but it is also equipped with so many little extras that made it the perfect place for a busy bride like me. Tables, chiavari chairs, linens, tons of decor, a beautiful bar, bridal suite, and photo booth, all included! The Southwind Hills Team exceeded every expectation I had. Not only were they so friendly and easy to work with, but they listened and I felt truly tried to understand my vision. I made it clear to them early on that I wanted to leave a lot up to them and trusted their professionalism and I'm so glad I put it in their hands. Even little details I mentioned in passing that I had forgotten about they remembered and made happen. The entire staff was great to work with. Their chef and florist were both up front and honest and gave me great feedback about my ideas and how best to execute them. Elaine, our coordinator was wonderful to work with and put me at ease. The moment I saw Southwind I knew it was our venue and now that the ... Read more

  • My husband and I were married here on September 26th, 2014. We were the first couple to be married in the Enchanted Forest and it was so much more that I could have ever dreamed. The Southwind Hills staff handled every detail of our wedding and reception so I was able to completely focus on what was most important. Even the little details I wanted to use were set up and then packed away by their staff. Can't even explain how easy (and fun) the entire process was! Absolutely loved my experience planning with them and would recommend this stunning and unique venue to anyone!

  • Our wedding day was perfect, and so much of that was thanks to the team at Southwind Hills. Every detail was taken care so we could just show up and enjoy. The food was amazing and we really enjoyed working with the chef. My mom especially loved how she took the time to completely costimize our menu and make it a nice meal for our guests rather than just typical "wedding food". Ali was our coordinator and truly made our day easy and fun. My outside vendors (most were family friends) all loved her as well. Made me happy to know my guests and even vendors were so well taken care of. Extremely thankful we found a venue that will do so much for their clients. Would encourage anyone to consider this location.

  • Our guests (and us!!) loved this venue for our wedding! It is VERY beautiful inside and out and the staff are very accommodating. They made sure all of our wedding guests were taken care of. The venue is so decorated already with the chandeliers, gas lanterns, etc that all you need to do is add little hints of your color here and there to make things completely magical. Their chef on staff is very fun to work with as well. We wanted to customize our meats and add-ins a little and she had tons of ideas to offer. She really knows her food and is an amazing chef. We still have guests complimenting the food. I cannot believe how perfect our wedding turned out - with thanks to this venue.

  • Southwind Hills' Saturday morning brunch wedding was perfect for us. I was super busy during our engagement and didn't want to plan every detail. Southwind Hills provided a team of experts who knew what the venue was capable of, as well as a great network of vendors who could help with outside needs. (Turns out - it's really difficult to find someone to do hair and makeup at 6:00am! I asked the venue team and they searched around until we found someone.) Every email was answered quickly, I always felt well taken care of. Within the last month of my engagement, the coordinator overseeing our wedding changed twice. While that was a little alarming, our day went off without a hitch. The new coordinators were walked through with familiar faces to me, and I felt comfortable the whole time. I would definitely suggest using their in-house team when possible - the time constraints for outside vendors are not flexible, and their team of floral designers and catering does an amazing job. Also, J... Read more

  • Lots of positive and lots of negatives to this venue. I had an absolutely gorgeous wedding there. The property is well taken care of and will take your breath away. As far as choosing flowers and things...if you want to be in complete control this is probably not the place for you. I loved giving them my ideas for flowers and letting them create something beautiful (I had no idea what they would look like til the day of). Elaine the coordinator is wonderful! I would recommend her to everyone! One the other hand the new coordinator Tammy caused me excess stress on my wedding day becoming overly anxious on a consistent basis and letting it effect her interactions with the bride. The venue has a pretty rigid schedule that they do not like to deviate from. The food...while I got many compliments was done by a very unpleasant woman. Chef Angela was rude, unprofessional and down right distasteful. She called the food choices my groom and I wanted,"bar food" and said she would never serve it ... Read more

    Hi Lacy, thank you very much for your feedback. We'd like to apologize that you did not have a great experience with us at Southwind Hills. We strive to deliver an incredible, stress-free, and joyous day to all of our couples. We take all of our reviews very seriously, and we are always seeking to improve our practices. I would love the opportunity to speak with you personally regarding your experience, and I would encourage you to call or email us so that we could better incorporate your feedback. I would also like to offer some explanation for some of our venue's practices. While many of our out of town brides such as yourself prefer to give us their photos, Pinterest, and inspiration for floral and decor then let our design team handle the details, we certainly understand that you may have wanted more of a preview or insight into bringing your vision to life. We are always available to our clients for unlimited meetings, emails, and phone conversations to ensure that their vision is fulfilled. I do understand that our venue's timeline can seem quite structured as we remind our clients throughout their engagement, but this is done to ensure that you have ample time for photos, dances, and visiting with your guests. We did want to ensure that you were able to capture all of your desired photos on your wedding day and because as the meal chosen for your guests was not a typical brunch buffet, but rather a full meal option, it did take additional time to serve your guests on the buffet. We believe these two factors may have contributed to the timeline for the reception seeming more rigid. Again, we would like to sincerely apologize that you did not have a 5 star experience with us, and I would like to provide you the opportunity to speak with us further. Thank you for your feedback.

  • While this venue is absolutely gorgeous, as was our wedding, having to deal with some of their personnel tainted the whole experience. The "professional" chef was the most rude and difficult person to deal with. While the menu had been arranged and confirmed with their previous chef, Southwind allowed for the new chef to refuse to comply with the menu. Weeks of negotiating to try and find menu options that the bride requested, was only met with Refusals with the chef saying that "she would never serve that at a wedding". It was less than a week before the wedding before a decision was reached. She didn't provide what she had promised during the reception in regards to assistance with parts of the reception, and family had to step in and help with what Angela had promised she would provide. The flowers which were done by one of the "wedding planners/florists, were so disappointing. We had met several times, had provided pictures of desired arrangements and what we got were nothing like ... Read more

    While this post was made by a private user, this particular incident was such a profound and unfortunate experience for all involved that we know exactly which evening this refers to of the hundreds of events we have hosted. The review is obviously one person's perception, and while we do believe this specific experience does not come close to reflect who we are, we also believe it is important we do our best to learn and grow from negativity. This review is based on a wedding held over a year ago from a client who unfortunately chose not to utilize the many opportunities we offer for unlimited communication. We are honored to say that so much has changed since then. We invite the reader to do proper research and seek the most current event reviews, then contact us to find out how we can prove this is not reflective of the Southwind Hills standard of service. We wish this couple, and their family, a life time of love and happiness, as that is truly what matters the most.

  • They were very rude and unprofessional to not only me but my family, bridesmaids, hairstylist and even to my other professional wedding vendors! Their "top of the line" chef chewed me out for being early to the venue and even got into a huge fight with my mom and sister right after that. I felt like I wasn't welcomed there on my wedding day because we showed up early (yet I had already confirmed the arrival time with South Winds wedding coordinator), I felt rushed and after the Chef made me cry all I wanted to do was leave. I couldn't focus on my wedding day and getting married because of the unnecessary drama they caused. Because my mother, hairstylist and I had to help decorate the venue, I didn't get my hair done soon enough to take pictures before hand with my bridesmaids, those are pictures I will never get and this was the most upsetting to me. We had paid them a premium amount of money to make sure everything was decorated and taken care of and it wasn't. It wasn't just the chef... Read more

    We regret this client feels she was not able to enjoy her wedding day at our venue. Sadly, when contractual policies and procedures are not followed (such as unexpectedly arriving 4 hours early-permission was not granted by any one of our staff- and expecting the chef or designer to be prepared at that time), even the most experienced professionals are unable to meet certain demands. We are always available to our clients, without limits, during the planning process so that we all remain on the same page with no hidden expectations on either side. We do hope all of our couples choose to develop that connection with our team so that they can truly experience the care and expertise our team provides.
