Dream wedding venueReviewed 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 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!!!
Mixon's In The Grove provided me with my fairytale wedding venue! Ever since I was a little girl this was the place I had envisioned. When I first saw the grove it brought me to tears because was the most beautiful place I had ever seen and surpassed my imagination! I lost count on how many people told me it was the most beautiful wedding venue they have ever been to! Despite getting married in the hot/muggy florida summer this place still provided us with amazing outdoor conditions and almost forgot that bugs exist outside at this place. This place is an Oasis where dreams really do come true! Thank you a thousand times over!
A Magical WeddingReviewed on 6/25/2015 Lisa S
I was impressed with Mixon's from the start. Sheri was warm and inviting and was really helpful, letting us know all the things that we would need to put together. The venue was beautifully lit and they were really tolerant of all of our weird requests (like having a half of a chandelier). We all had a wonderful time, got tons of compliments on our wedding, and we are thankful that Mixon's was there for us!
Amazing WeddingReviewed on 9/12/2015 Rebekah S
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 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. I wasn't bothered once and got to enjoy spending the day getting my hair and makeup done in their bridal suite. Overall, it was an amazing day at the best venue and nicest staff. Thanks Mixons!

Mixons!Reviewed on 3/28/2014 Am P
Mixons was absolutely fabulous! Sheri the wedding planner for mixons, keeps everything in a timely manor and understand people on a budget. There were several financial due dates all in a gapped time frame that made it easy to pay for everything and not feel overwhelmed laying a large amount of money at once. Sheri helped make our wedding day smooth and beautiful. The Gardens there are hidden and BEAUTIFUL! they maintain the garden wonderfully and I would recommend them to everyone!
Real Florida VenueReviewed 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 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 SpotReviewed 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 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.
Beautiful VenueReviewed on 6/13/2012 Dorothy K
Mixon's is a beautiful place to have a wedding. Kathy was wonderful to work with and kept everyone on schedule. I highly recommend them!
Absolutely Beautiful !Reviewed on 3/22/2012 jheanell b
Having Mixon's in the Grove as our wedding venue was the best decision we made. The coordinator, Kathy is awesome. She is friendly, professional and assists you all the way through. The grove is beautiful with trees, a waterfall and flowers. Those are just the naturally occurring accessories. If you want a beautiful outdoor event with a variety of options Mixon's is for you!
easy, breezy, beautifulReviewed on 11/26/2011 EMILY S
Worth the price. Flexible and creative service. Stunning night time views complete with twinkle lights! Lots of space to mingle. Great alternative plans in the event of rain. We got married in october and it couldn't have been more gorgeous
Beautiful!Reviewed on 9/12/2011 Dan K
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 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!

Happy Bride 4/21/2011Reviewed on 5/18/2011 melissa h
I couldn't say enough good things about Mixons! This was our ceremony and reception sight. Kathy Decker was the coordinator and she was AMAZING! She served as some what of a wedding planner to me, helping me with every detail from the decor to the food and more. Mixons is a beautiful location and so affordable! They have extremly comfordable and spacious bride and grooms dressing rooms as well as bathrooms. And don't get me started on all of the wonderful places for photos! I don't have one bad thing to say about Mixons. I am one happy bride!
Beautiful Place for a ReceptionReviewed on 5/12/2011 Ashley A
Not only was Mixon's in the Grove our dream Reception location, but on top of it everyone we met with was so kind and helpful! We had looked at many other venues, and all were too expensive with very little to offer. But immediately when you walk into the pavilion and the gardens your breath is taken away! It is completely beautiful and rustic (exactly what we wanted for our reception). Kathy Decker was so helpful and easy to work with. She helped work out several details that every bride worries about (especially when you don't have a wedding planner). I would suggest this venue to everyone I meet! Beautiful groves, beautiful gardens, beautiful place! And it's fun to go to for family events!
