Southern Mansion

South Jersey



Blend into the Victorian splendor of the Southern Mansion for your Cape May wedding! Built circa 1860, the opulent mansion has been completely restored to its original glory of genuine Southern hospitality. Imagine getting the best this mansion has to offer—making a grand entrance from the spiral staircase, enjoying the exotic lush gardens for your ceremony and cocktail hour, having a delicious gourmet dinner in the roomy solariums with a garden view, and moving to a different room for music and dancing! From admiring the beautiful crown moldings, vintage fireplaces, original hand-made furniture, and amazing hardwood floors, you and your guests will feel as though you have been transported to an earlier century. As the night falls, don’t forget to go outside and take some photos around the mansion! The sparkling lights create a romantic atmosphere and a setting perfect for memories that will last a lifetime. Tucked in the historic district of Cape May, the mansion is also only a 5-minute walk from the best beaches, shops, and restaurants in South Jersey.
