190 Red Gate Farms Trail, Savannah, GA
The Mackey House is a mansion wedding venue located in Savannah, GA. Just five minutes from downtown Savannah, this colonial-style house with its beautiful gardens has been a sought-after wedding venue for over 16 years. First purchased in 1931 by Harry E. Martin, Jr., the property was named Red Gate Farms by Harry’s wife, Mamie. Many years later, in 1997, their granddaughter, Laura, and her husband, Fred Mackey, built their own home at Red Gate Farms. Laura and Fred hosted their daughter Tonya’s wedding at their home. Afterward, they received many requests from friends and family to host their own events at the Mackey House. The house soon became one of Savannah’s premier wedding venues. The Mackey House is set on 150 acres and boasts picturesque gardens with a pond, tropical ferns, palm trees, and outdoor fountains. It features six indoor and outdoor spaces that can host ceremonies and receptions with up to 300 guests, as well as engagement parties and showers. Ceremonies can be held on the stunning 2,600 square-foot outdoor pavilion, which features a foyer and a fireplace, or on the sweeping lawn. For receptions, couples can choose the spacious covered deck with a dance floor and atmospheric lighting, or the historic interior of the house. Suites are available for the couple to get ready before the event. The venue can provide a multitude of services, including catering, an in-house bar, overnight accommodations, transport, photography, sound, lighting, and more. They also offer setup and cleanup.
