The All-Inclusive Garden Wedding Perfected

We have perfected the all-inclusive garden wedding for our guests. While you find yourself counting pennies and being charged for every single detail on a long list of “add-ons” at other wedding garden venues, at Southern Exposure our pricing is simplicity itself.

We include everything you could possibly need in our wedding packages, and allow you to choose the things you desire. You can also choose to bring in your own elements to make your wedding day complete. From crisp table linens to the flower petals strewn as you walk down the aisle, and from the table centerpieces, to cutting and serving the cake, we’ve got it all covered to make life simpler.
