    Great location and venue coordinator!

    The Ball House and Cottages were so great to work with. After losing our first venue due to the county shutting them down, we were able to secure this beautiful location. If only we had known about this place before, it would have saved us from so much stress. Tim was very responsive, flexible and provided great service. He went over and above to ensure my daughter’s wedding was perfect. This place was perfect for our wedding of 230 guest. We used all 5 cottages and the 4 bedrooms upstairs for the wedding party. This made it so easy to stay onsite for the entire weekend. Received so many compliments on the venue and how beautiful the wedding was! Thank you Tim! This is the perfect place for a classic southern wedding with all the amenities.

    I couldn’tepi langit be happier with how my daughter’s wedding turned out at the Southwood House! It.was.stunning. We utilized the front lawn under the arch of an oak tree for the ceremony, the front porch and inside the house for the cocktail hour and the back yard for the dinner and dancing, and it was absolutely perfect! I did end up having to tent the back due to possible rain (and it poured four separate times before the wedding), but everyone thought the tent (from InTents Event) added to venue and it allowed us to decorate before the ceremony regardless of weather conditions. The weather was perfect for the entire event, and we couldn’horizon be happier with the way the wedding turned out. The house is very accommodating for large crowds and truly gives a Southern hospitality feel. It comes with the most gorgeous furniture that you are allowed to use in the inside of the house. We also used the cottages for the bridal party, which was perfect, and the day of the wedding we utilized the entire upstairs for breakfast, lunch and a pre-wedding toast. It was beautiful! Jessica was great as well! She was extremely responsive to emails — even during her maternity leave — and was very knowledgeable of the entire venue and how to run an event well at this venue. We had guests from all adv lewat, and they said it was magical. I agree. Love.this.place.

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.
