If you’re looking for a great location, perfect venue space, and reception all in one, amazing venue owners, then stop looking. Mrs Kim and her husband Mr. James has made this hidden gem, the most perfect place to get married, or host an event. I remember messaging with Kim at 4 AM in morning stressed out, looking for a venue and she replied within 30 minutes. Her communication throughout this entire process has been exceptional. She has every decor, piece imaginable, her follow up is impeccable, and her referrals for caterers in bartenders, are hands down the best. You are treated as family from day 1.

They guided us through the entire planning process, from choosing the perfect venue to selecting the most exquisite floral arrangements. Their extensive industry knowledge allowed us to make informed decisions, ensuring every aspect of our wedding was top-notch. We felt confident and stress-free, knowing they had everything under control. They were always available to answer our questions, provide suggestions, and address any concerns promptly. Their responsiveness and willingness to adapt to our needs made us feel valued and cared for. Evidently, they genuinely wanted our wedding to be as perfect as we did.

September 9, 2023 my daughter and son-in-law got married here. Everything that day was amazing if not perfect. The venue itself is the perfect country, private, beautiful location. It has a chapel, outdoor area, and barn- style chapel to choose from to have your wedding and/or reception. From them viewing the venue to the wedding day Kim and her husband James went above and beyond to make sure this day went smoothly and perfect for them. It rained, poured this day and they made sure the outdoor area was still beautiful for their ceremony. They exceeded all of my expectations. Everything was so stress free. When we arrived that morning everything was already decorated and in place. I would recommend Southwind Acres Venue to anyone that is looking to get married. I have already recommended it wedding groups I am apart of. Southwind Acres Venue is the perfect, beautiful to celebrate any occasion.

This venue was amazing. Kim and her husband were very professional and went above and beyond to make our day special. The staff was very friendly, helpful, and professional. The decorations and chapel were beautiful and Kim kept in touch through the whole process to make sure we had everything we needed and wanted. The grounds are beautiful for an outside wedding , the chapel was beautiful for an inside wedding, the reception area was very spacious and beautiful. Our whole event was amazing and stress free. Thank you for making our day special for us.

Great venue!

This venue is amazing! Not only is it so charming and tucked away in the woods, the owner is the sweetest! She was always available for my questions and made the planning process incredibly easy. I was a stress-free bride! They day of was absolutely perfect and smooth thanks to her. She took care of everything and it went great. I cannot recommend this place enough. Amazing, had all the decorations, best owner, and did not break the bank.

You pay less and get more! - FOR REAL

With prices of everything skyrocketing these days and hidden fees, it was a breath of fresh air to deal with an honorable business woman who truly wanted to make it an affordable, straightforward and easy process for the bride and groom. With Southwind Acres Venue, you pay less and get more! Whatever I wanted or needed, Kim had. She has this beautiful walk-in closet full of decorations and a binder showing what has been done in the past to give you ideas for what you want your wedding to look like. She told me part of the deal is that we can use her decorations at no additional charge! We didn’t have to worry about bringing them or cleaning them up! We were able to have the ceremony and reception there in the middle of winter in her beautiful little chapel located right next to the reception hall. Most wedding venues don't allow smoking these days. Kim, however, set up a cigar smoking spot outside for my dad and his friends, so that everyone could feel comfortable. I had the most beautiful wedding day and everyone from young to old, men and women had nothing but wonderful things to say about their experience on our wedding day at Southwind Acres Venue. The only things that went wrong at the wedding were my choices of using other vendors than what she recommended. If I had to do it over again, I would have just listened to Kim from the get-go of what vendors to use. She never steered me wrong. She went above and beyond to serve us and make everything perfect!


Gina W - 2023 January Going Away Party

This is a wonderful venue with incredible owners. We hosted our going away party here and found the staff to be fun and super easy to work with. They even did the clean up for us at the end! We had 50 people for lunch and 70 at the drop in party after with plenty of space. The out door area with swings and fire pit gave a sweet spot for our guests to chat and relax outdoors as well. (Even in January!)

The best part (besides Mrs. Kim and her hard working husband) was that you can choose beautiful decor from her massive storage selection and it’s included in your price!

We highly recommend Southwind Acres

November Wedding

My husband and I had to move up our wedding a year because my dad got sick. Mrs Kim and husband made our day everything we wanted and more! We had an absolutely beautiful wedding and made memories to last a life time! We are so grateful for the amazing results we got and with such short notice! We would 10 out 10 recommend this venue to make your vision a reality!

Beautiful and easy

I was the wedding coordinator as well as everything else for a couple getting married. I had two months to pull this off! Kim at Southwind Acres said we can do this! Without hesitation she and the bride had all the decorations picked out and layout of the entire venue! On the day of she had everything done! I was shocked how attentive she was to every little detail! She and her husband were there from beginning to end! She even bartended and her husband made sure everyone was happy! I know we couldn’t have done it without them! We love y’all so much! Thanks again for making the day perfect


Alex C- Bride 2022


My husband and I were looking for a venue close to our homes and one of our friends had recently been married at this venue. We met with the owner Mrs. Kim Conness to view the venue and all the accommodations and were blown away. She has a vast collection of decorations and a beautiful antique Mercedes that we used for our "going away" photos. She was easy to work with and had photo books full of options for decorations and table settings. We met with her on several occasions to finalize the decorating plans. She worked wonderfully with all of our vendors and had a large list of local vendors to choose from if we needed assistance in locating them. The day before our wedding all I had to do was take what decorations I had purchased (which you honestly don't have to because she has so many) to the venue and take a look at how things were setting up. The day of my wedding I had to do NOTHING, which was great for a stress free wedding day. She texted me with any questions and when we arrived to the venue for our reception we were blown away. I could not have asked for anything more than what she delivered. We had WAY MORE people RSVP than expected and she was very accommodating and ensure we had plenty of table and chairs. Even though we did not have our ceremony on site that option is available. She can set up a beautiful outdoor ceremony, or you can have the ceremony inside of their new chapel! They also have a gorgeous bridal and groom suite if you choose to have it all there for everyone to get ready there. She provided a list of local VRBO and Airbnb rentals if anyone chose to stay nearby the night before or of the wedding. You absolutely get a huge BANG for your buck at this location. I would recommend this venue to ANYONE at ANYTIME!

My now husband and I just got married today and it was absolutely beautiful. Mrs.Kim and her husband are the best hosts I could have hoped for. They were very helpful during the whole experience from start to finish. They make sure the bride and groom are well taken care of. They have so many different beautiful types of decorations to pick from and it makes planning a wedding so much easier. Their chapel and reception area are absolutely perfect and can fit tons of people! If I could give more than 5 stars I would. They are the absolute best!

Amy H. -Bride 2022
The whole experience at Southwind Acres was awesome.
I’m so happy with my choice at Southwind Acres for my reception because they delivered! Kim & James made the experience so easy. So many choices in decorations, from lace to burlap. Make it as fancy or as simple as you like. The varieties in decorations are amazing, and Kim has made it a very smooth process from start to finish.

Megan B. - Bride 2022


Loved this Venue

I’m so beyond thankful that I saw this venue. Kim has been so helpful with my whole wedding experience and setting it up. If it were not for her, I don’t think my wedding day would have been as amazing as it was! She made sure my wedding day was what I wanted it to be! I will definitely recommend her to any one who is wanting to find a venue that will work around with what they want!

Collin and Megan’s wedding

My son Collin and his bride Megan had a fabulous wedding at Southwind Acres. The owners, Kim and James, we easy to work with and so helpful. Would highly recommend this venue.



Laurin J.- Bride 2022


Stress free Wedding Day

I don't think my husband and I could have chosen a better venue. All we had to do was show up. Kim decorated everything and everything looked beautiful. We did not have to worry about a thing. She made sure everything ran smoothly from food, caterer, DJ, etc. Another added bonus is a separate building decorated like a church chapel just in case it rained. If you are looking for a stress free wedding day, Southwind Acres is your perfect choice. You will not be disappointed!

 Wonderful Experience

Kim was wonderful to work with and made our company

Christmas party a success!

The venue was decorated beautifully for Christmas.

The venue exceeded our expectations!


Kendra H. – Bride 2021


Best day ever!

Kim and her husband are the absolute BEST!! She takes all of the pressure of having to take care of everything the day of off of the bride and groom! She offers her own decorations/tables and sets up pretty much everything for you! Kim is now a life long friend of mine and my husbands! I would recommend this venue not only because of how gorgeous it is but because of how much stress Kim takes off of your plate. I’d do it all over again a hundred times if I could! If you’re looking for a barn themed wedding with an amazing host, this is the one for you!


Melissa K. – Bride 2021



I could not have asked for a better easier wedding experience. Kim and James were so helpful and easy to work with. They have all the decorations you could possibly want. The on site chapel was everything I dreamed of. Kim went above and beyond in all aspects. When I encountered an issue not even related to the venue she was right there to help me figure it out and fix it. My day was magical all thanks to Kim and James.


Angela –Mother of Bride 2021



Yes! Yes! Yes! This is the best venue and beautifully hidden gem for weddings and events in the area!!

As a mother, you often dream of your daughter's wedding day. When she becomes engaged, the first question for the engaged couple and for her parents, is where? Our first call was to SOUTHWIND ACRES in Prosperity, SC and we spoke to Kim. She scheduled our on site visit that week. When we toured the venue, we fell in love with the grounds, spacious outdoor areas, the outdoor/indoor ceremony options in the event of inclement weather. Kim met with us and explained all options. This venue provides all dining tables including linens, multiple arbors, beautiful pews and chairs for your guests. In addition to these items, they have an abundant supply of decorations. And yes, this is all included in the price!! Best of all, the owners meet with you prior to your event and asks precisely how would you like everything arranged for your special day. This is where the magic happens. James and Kim turn your ideas and visions for your special day into reality. They do not overpromise. Their delivery and execution of all agreed upon services are top notch! The venue is spotless! The owners are meticulous with their organization; they exude pride in their ownership of their property while setting their client's needs as their top priority. While having a beautiful venue is an important part of the process, having key people operating the venue is vital! James and Kim's dedication and commitment to you as their client is outstanding! They strive to accommodate you, they are flexible where possible, they work harder than one should during these events to guarantee your experience is one of a lifetime. They make the process as easy and seamless as possible.

Our daughter and her husband said that everything exceeded their expectations and their guest had a phenomenal experience. Overall, SOUTHWIND ACRES will always hold a beautiful memory within all of our hearts. Thank you Mr. and Mrs. James and Kim Conness

One last thing...
Don't be surprised when you stop by to see Kim on the riding mower and James out using the blower. As stated, they are hard workers and keep on top of it all to get the things done that need be. The two of them, along with the venue are absolutely worth your investment!
