My son and his new wife were married at the Southern Mansion on August 11, 2012. We could not have been happier with the services provided for our event. The check-in for our guests was smooth, the ... Read more rooms were gorgeous and the grounds were absolutely beautiful for a summer garden wedding. We were so looking forward to the bride making her entrance to the ceremony walking down the spiral staircase into the garden. The weather gods were not cooperating with our plans and it rained off and on for most of the day. As the wedding time was approaching we were very nervous - but our wedding coordinator, Andreea, remained calm and collected. She worked with us until the last moment to make the bride and groom's dreams come true and we had the ceremony as planned in the Southern Mansion garden! It was fabulous! With flooding in all the surrounding shore towns due to the heavy rain we were so lucky that we were able to continue as planned. The staff was organized and efficient and the food was delicious! The breakfast that is served in each was wonderful as well. Everyone who attended the wedding celebration raved about the event. We cannot thank Andreea and her staff enough for making my son's wedding a success. Be sure to check out the Southern Mansion!

We had our wedding at the Southern Mansion and everyone was blown away! Guests loved the historic location and gardens and we loved how it fit our vintage vibe! Ken and Denise were awesome and helped ... Read more us tremendously. Their recommended vendors like DJ Ken Schaefer and Shore Thing Event Services were a huge help and we couldn’t have been happier with how things turned out!

Amazing wedding weekend
We just hosted our daughter's wedding June of 2019 at the Southern Mansion in Cape May, New Jersey, and I can only say it exceeded our expectations! From the outdoor ceremony and cocktail hour in the ... Read more the gorgeous Victorian Garden, to the dinner in the Solarium with the beautiful ceiling fans and cathedral-high glass windows, overlooking the garden, to the reception in the ballroom, everything was magical and perfect. The guests all raved about the historic building, the setting, and the food. The waitstaff was efficient and unobtrusive. Everything ran like a well-oiled machine. Ken, the wedding manager, and Denise, his boss, could not have been more accommodating and reassuring in the months leading up to the actual wedding. We booked the Southern Mansion after we first met Ken, because we unanimously decided we wanted to work with him. It was clear that Ken loves weddings and making them happen. When we first met with Ken, he suggested that we try to have our guests book the entire Mansion for the weekend so that the entire place would be ours. So glad we took his advice, the entire place was ours for the weekend filled with family and friends and by the time Saturday evening rolled around, a lot of the guests knew each other and it just made it seem like a weekend long party. The rooms are simply gorgeous, the bridal suite - beautiful, comfortable and spacious. The cooked to order breakfast each morning was delicious, and the reception dinner, especially the 7 oz filet was mouthwatering. Even the Italian Wedding Soup was easily the best I have ever had. We have gotten so many compliments on the food and the wedding itself. Many people said it was one of the nicest weddings they had ever been to. While I did have my reservations in the beginning, having the dinner and the reception in separate rooms, that was actually the best part. It was not a "cookie-cutter" wedding and the different locations just added to the enjoyment of things. While we were lucky, and the weather could not have been more perfect, I can't imagine that even if the ceremony had to be moved inside, that Ken and the staff at the Southern Mansion would not have made an indoor ceremony and cocktail hour just as wonderful. Having the entire place to ourselves was like having it as our home for the weekend. No one made us feel that we were in the way or on someone else's property. The front desk staff and everyone we met was gracious and welcoming. Ken, the wedding manager, also recommended the perfect DJ as well, Ken Schaffer of Ken Schaffer Entertainment - DJs & Lighting Design, who kept the dance floor hopping. The added perk for those who watch Ghosts Hunters, on which the Southern Mansion was featured, is that several guests reported some "strange" but friendly happenings, including me. I know this review seems over the top but I honestly can't say enough good things about the Southern Mansion and their wonderful staff. If you are looking for a destination wedding location, check this out, you won't be disappointed.
