Dream wedding venue

Reviewed on 12/04/2015

Mixons was everything I dreamed of and more for my wedding. It was really important to me to have my wedding ceremony & reception outdoors! I wanted my wedding to have a romantic, yet open feel without worrying everything would be moved indoors if the weather was bad. I... Read More visited several beach venues & was discouraged because of the price, and most of them only offered a closed-feeling banquet room or ball room if the weather became an issue. I began searching for other outdoor venues & again was disappointed by pricing & lack of options & such. Then I found Mixons!!! I knew the moment I toured this venue that I wanted to have my wedding there. It was reasonably priced and more beautiful than any other venues I had visited, including the beach! Sherri and Gabby were awesome to work with & made it really special for us, always helping and answering questions so promptly! There were no hidden costs, and the wedding area was even more beautiful than I had imagined when decorated. I really do not believe we could have chosen a better place. Our guests said they were "blown away" by how beautiful it was, and that our wedding was the best they had ever attended. Mixons provides you with everything you need to plan your wedding if you want to do it yourself, or if you want a wedding planner, they have all of the connections for that as well. I cannot say enough about how wonderful it was. Thank you again, Sherri, and Mixons, for helping me to have my dream wedding!!!! If I could, I would do it again!!!

I had my wedding here 4/1/16. The beauty of Mixons exceeded any expectation I could have ever dreamed of for my special day. Mixons has an assortment of decor items at hand for your use.

It was super hot o our wedding day and Sheri and her assistant were out there all morning and afternoon setting everything up. When I walked outside for the first time I could not believe how beautiful it looked. I was really stressing that I bough to simple of decorations and... Read More that it was going to look cheazy. Sheri really exceeded my expectations with the entire set up. It looked better then I could have hoped. The entire time before the wedding I would email her and ask her questions and she always replied back to me quick which I really appreciated. She was a delight to work with and the venue had EVERYTHING we needed. It was amazing. If I had to do it again I wouldn't change my choice of venue. Mixons all the way!!!

We could not have been more delighted with our wedding at Mixons!! Mixons is an unexpected picturesque wedding venue find. Sheri, the event planner with Mixons was AWESOME, super organized, shared in our excitement, had great taste, and helped pull everything off without a... Read More hitch. Our day was beautiful, we can't thank Mixons enough for everything they did to help contribute to our special day. We didn't have a wedding coordinator help with the all the wedding planning but we did get the day of wedding planner package and I HIGHLY recommend it. Sheri and her team definitely know what they're doing and work really well the vendors, and it made the day go by without any stress on the bridal party/family part. We would recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful, large but private and intimate wedding venue.

The location and the scenery were perfect and the staff was very friendly. The only negative thing I found with this venue is the bartending fees since they do not hold their own liquor license and charge a larger fee because of that. Also, would have liked to have an additional... Read More hour for cleaning rather than just 30 mins.

We came to Mixon's cancelled on and broken, just 5 months before our wedding! Sheri and team were very accommodating, and although we had to change our date, everything turned out beautifully. Having the reception and ceremony in one spot is always convenient, and the pavilion... Read More with the twinkle lights is so lovely at night. My only wish is that the extras, (like the beaded curtain, sheers for the gazebo, linens (outsourced), and day planner services) were a little more affordable or included (curtain, sheers) as perks in the venue rental cost, as add-ons do add up quickly! Beautiful spot, decent value, very nice people. And their wine is delicious!

Amazing Wedding

We had an amazing time at Mixons. Our guests thought the grounds were beautiful and it made for a lovely back drop for everyone pictures. The staff was super friendly and really made our vision come to life. Our coordinator, Savannah, was the best. She helped us to keep a huge... Read More secret from our guests and families and it worked out fabulously. She made sure everything was on time and that things went smoothly. For me , as the Bride, its important that ibgwt to enjoy my day and not be bothered with the tasks at hand. Savannah was great at that.

Real Florida Venue

Reviewed on 4/01/2013 Amanda S

This was a beautiful venue and very affordable. I had very little decorations to do because the landscaping is so beautiful and loved the "Real Florida" it represented. Kathy Decker, the coordinator, is amazing! She is half the charm of the venue and amazing to work with, she... Read More knew every detail of our wedding and was so sweet. Unfortunately she had a family emergency the day of our wedding and could not attend. We didnt like the stand-in coordinator, but we understand that things happen out of everyone's control. I'm sure if Kathy had been there everything would have been perfect. I loved my wedding venue and would do it again in a heart beat.

The Perfect Garden Wedding Spot

Reviewed on 6/29/2012 Kelly G

My husband and I had a short 6 month engagement and we knew we wanted a garden wedding in Florida. We looked at 10 venues over our Christmas break and honestly, by the time I got to the last one, I had started to become disheartened. We were planning an outdoor wedding for 260... Read More people and that in itself was a hard space to fill since most venues only hold about 100 or less in that type of setting. When we walked into the butterfly garden at Mixon's, I knew this was the place. The gardens are just gorgeous! We had a wonderful gazebo where we held the actual ceremony by the water and the reception pavillion had plenty of room for dancing and the buffet and the feasting style tables I had wanted. It was magical with the lighting and the crystals and the flowers and butterflies everywhere. I couldn't have imagined it better! Not to mention, the pricing was very reasonable and the staff was so friendly and willing to help you in any way they could. Plus, it's not an over done venue and you feel like it's your own little getaway. It was simply the perfect garden spot for a wedding.

I have nothing negative to say about this venue! It was absolutely perfect for my new wife(hee hee) and I. Not only was it one of the cheapest all inclusive (ceremony/reception/tables/chairs/covered pavilion/kitchen for caterer/multiple locations for unique pictures/etc.) It was... Read More also the best looking! Beautiful flowers everywhere! Kathy was in touch throughout! The price point was well under what the location is worth! Koi pond that guests can feed fish. We had small koi in our centerpieces that tied in perfectly with this place! We also did a butterfly release as we walked away from the ceremony and it was beautiful! plenty of room for catering, DJ, and other vendors! The best part was that we only needed flowers for bouquet's, flower girls(dressed up center pieces with leftover pedals), corsages, and boutonnieres, saving us tons on flowers! I would recommend this place for anyone and everyone who can get in! 5 stars! and many years of memories!
