I want to get married again! Oh, same husband but I want to get married at The Mackey House! This is Savannah's best kept secret but it should not be. This house is a photographer's dream! From the large Spanish-moss dripping trees out

"Laura & Fred Mackey have created an amazing special event venue here! What a spot for a destination wedding. It's hidden elegantly behind their marvelous and unique Red Gate RV Resort- We LOVE this place! Contrified and so close to Citified Savannah"

??I was asked to photograph a wedding for a personal friend in February 2011, I don??t shoot many weddings, but I agreed as a favor to her. She told me they booked the Mackey House. I had heard good things in the past, but had never been there before. I told her I knew a great DJ and I could help coordinate if she needed these things and she said The Mackey House had people they used often and recommended. I was very unsure about this and warned her that she had never seen their work. She decided to use them anyway.

??I went to the rehersal and the house was AMAZING, beautiful inside and out. Plenty of backgrounds for beautiful photos. Mr. and Mrs Mackey were very helpful and kind. Then I met Dave?. Dave was the DJ/planner and much more. He had a voice that was just loud enough to get your attention, but not over-bearing. He knew exactly how to present the property to the bride and groom. He explained everything in detail and asked if there were questions. He was great! I told him I wished he could have done my wedding. The wedding went very smooth, and the reception was fun. He kept things going, he kept people dancing and most importantly he kept the Bride and Groom happy.

??I have yet to see the video, but the videographer was very nice and seemed to be everywhere all at once. We worked well together. I had a great experience. Thanks to the Mackey??s and their wonderful staff for making my friends wedding day wonderful!?

Gorgeous! wedding 10/22/10
I had my fall wedding at The Mackey House as well as my reception. The staff at the Mackey House, including Fred and Laura Mackey, were so helpful, amazing and accomodating. Mr. Mackey was so easy to work with, anything we wanted he made sure we could get. I cannot say enough good things about this beautiful venue!! All of my guests were completely charmed by the gorgeous setting and the beautiful home. They thought it was the perfect southern setting for our wedding. All of our guests commented on how delicious the food was and we had such an amazing sweet table. I would recommend The Mackey House to anyone looking for an elegant and very affordable wedding venue. Thank you Mackey House! Our wedding was an event that neither we nor our guests will ever forget!

When you book a wedding at the mackey house you envision a beautiful warm and sunny day and clear starlit evening. In the back of your mind, you know that there is a possibility that rain may fall; however, severe storms and tornado warnings are not in the picture. Our guests arrived in trolleys in the rain and were escorted into the house with umbrellas. They vistited and enjoyed the Mackeys beautiful and spacious home during the rain storm. During this time the staff was concerned about the safety of our guests and made plans to take guests to the garage area if necessary. After the danger passed guests were taken to the pavillion for the ceremony. The sound of the rain actually added to the beauty of the service. The guests then were invited to the home for the reception. The deck area was covered as best it could be so some people could eat outside. Others enjoyed the home, sunroom and large verands. The cutting of the cake would have been inside anyway. Guests stood downstairs and some went up onto the balcony and this was so picturesque. One concern we had was having the ability to talk to people when the dancing and music began but it was not a problem. Steping inside the kitchen, dining room or onto the veranda one could easily talk to guests. We can not say enough about the hospitality of Laura, Fred, and Dave the DJ. The music and entertainment provided by Dave was the greatest and the food was wonderful. The wedding couple and guest had a "blast". Some guests told us it was the best wedding they had ever attended. So if the possibility of bad weather is making your decision whether to book the Mackey House difficult it should not be a factor. On one of the stormiest and wettest nights in Savannah the Mackey House provided our daughter and now son-in-law with a beautiful and memorable wedding."

I was married at The Mackey House, as was my sister. I have also been to a wedding and a party there since then. They have only continued to get BETTER!! I suggest if anyone wants real reviews on how wonderful The Mackey House is from True Brides that have actually been married there, go check out their web site. They have letter after letter about their beauty and service from brides and family members. I hope this helps anyone who wants a perfect day!!! I recommend them to everyone I know!

Pros: Beautiful and accommodating

Cons: You have to book early if you want a popular wedding month.

I should have been clued in when we found out that the deposit just to save your date is $2500 MINIMUM!!!!! Although the wedding was scheduled way over a year in advance Mr. Mackey insisted that the dates would fill up fast and the date would not be saved until he received our deposit. When we cancelled several months later and still well in advance of the date, he refused to refund our money. Most venues in Savannah only charge a few hundred dollars if anything at all just to write in your date. There is usually a deadline stated when deposits will not be refunded such as within 30 days of the date. Conclusion; Fred Mackey is hoping you can't make your date and that way he gets to make an awesome sum of money for doing absolutely nothing. Be careful when you choose this site for your wedding, I imagine no refunds is just one of many surprises with this venue.

When we arrived at the Mackey house for our first visit, We were impressed with how beautiful the place was. We were looking for something with some southern charm and the house and garden had the perfect setting.They showed us videos of other weddings and we loved how everything ( the food, the garden, the decor)was setup. They take care of everything from decorating,the garden,catering the food which was not only great but beautifully set up. They can help you with a dj/wedding cordinator,flowers, and photographers if you desire. Which makes things alot easier to plan if your able to take advantage of. We chose to just have the wedding in the garden and to have the reception catered at the house. Everything was decorated beautifully for the wedding and the reception(from the center pieces, to the food,to the flowers in the bathroom.) Made it feel very much a personal event. we dont think we could have ever had a more beautiful wedding or have we ever seen a wedding as beautiful. we have had so many compliments on how beautiful and nice everything was. It was very simple and elegant at the same time. Thanks to Mr and Mrs. Mackey and all the crew at the Mackey house for making everything so wonderful on our special day.

Pros: The garden,the home,and the food is awesome.

After a long year of planning the most important day of our lives, the Mackey House owner did not want to handle any of the wedding details until two weeks before and said "if I did not like it then I can just take my wedding elsewhere." What an awful thing to tell a person your doing business with let alone a "bride." So we did and had the most incredible wedding ever...thanks to my newly hired wedding planner! We are now even getting featured in the local Savannah Wedding magazine. With the Mackey House it seems so great because they can accommodate a lot of people, where downtown Savannah it's a little harder but I will tell you that it is not worth it. Also, you might like that they have a DJ, caterer, beverage service, an all inclusive deal but it's NOT! You do not get to taste the food or meet with the DJ to discuss music until two weeks before. They just do so many weddings..no personal details are taken into consideration. On top of everything we were not able to get our deposit back but it all worked out in the end because we ended up with the most beautiful wedding that was even less expensive than the Mackey House. Everything was less expensive and we were in downtown Savannah and that's where you want your family and friends to see you get married...not someone's home where their personal belongings and furniture are in the background of every picture you take. I bet it looked great a few years ago but it is definitely run down now and their pictures do not reflect it's actual appearance...please go see for yourself. I will also tell you that my mother flew down from Virginia in June to plan and see the venue and we had a meeting set with the owners for two weeks and he stood us up! Really...all in all they are very difficult to work with and I am not the only one to admit that. If you want the best wedding go to Memories N More for the BEST vendors. Thank you for all that you did for us Tricia, Teresa, Natalie, Heidi, and Cynthia.

First I will say that The Mackey House is a very beautiful place. When i was getting married they were my first choice to hold my wedding, I set up an appointment to take a good look at the place and was pleased, I asked for prices and they were out of my budget, I told the women that it was just more than I could afford and then she got very rude. I am glad I did not have my wedding there if they got that upset about my comment.
