Couples spend the most on venue and catering, followed by the engagement ring and honeymoon.

Individually hiring vendors is a common reason why couples go over budget because many of the services couples assume will be provided when booking a vendor actually end up being additional charges.

Details like lighting & decor, linens & dinnerware, and set up & tear down are often additional charges not disclosed in the initial venue meeting.

We couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else but Southwind Hills. It is absolutely stunning and the staff is just as incredible. We were blessed to have Elaine as our wedding coordinator. At Southwind Hills, you don’t have to worry about a thing once your wedding day arrives. Not a single thing! They take care of it all and do it flawlessly. It was the most relaxing, and enjoyable day! You all are the best!

It was the standard for all other venues…no other venue could compare. This place is incredible!! We were so impressed with the staff as they made every effort to accommodate our requests. You can tell that they truly want to make this day so personal and customized to each couple. Kristen was such a joy to work with! Our day could have not gone smoother. Our guests are still raving about the venue and how beautiful it was. Thank you Southwind Hills for making this the best day ever!
