If you have a wedding or special event PLEASE check out this facility. The facility is wonderful, but what makes it the absolutely best is the Watkins family with their graciousness and professionalism. Even the weather did not slow them down. Thanks soooo much Watkins family and SouthWind Plantation. - Billy Seals
