My husband and I could not have gotten married at a more spectacular venue. Everything about Mixon's just completely blew us away! The grounds are so stunning (and make for some amazing wedding photos) and its perfectly hidden away from the busier parts of town. We truly felt... Read More like we were tucked away in our little paradise. Mixon's was everything we dreamed of and more. The staff was so friendly, attentive, and accommodating. We also used the preferred vendors for Mixon's as well and were thrilled with all of Sheri's recommendations. Everyone worked together seamlessly which allowed my husband and I to really enjoy our wedding day to the fullest. To top it off, we have been receiving endless compliments from our guests! We both highly recommend!

I made an appointment with Sheri Gooby to look at their wedding venue and she was very unprofessional. I made this appointment 10/04/16 via phone call and I e-mail her to confirm it on 10/05/16. We agreed to meet on 10/07/16 1pm. I have called her phone in the morning of... Read More 10/07/16 two time and left a voicemail and proceeded to emailing her requesting a call, concerning my appointment since there was bad weather that day but I still wanted to try to make it for a tour. At 12:45 PM I called again and spoke with Marie at the customer’s service desk and was told she was in this morning and had left for the day. I got a call ten minute after from her, she called stated that, “she was waiting on me to come.” I explained to her that I called her in the morning, emailed her and I just called again and they said she had left for the day. She stated “I haven’t been in my office all day so I haven’t checked my call”. I can understand if you missed my call 15 minutes ago but I also called 4 hours ago so you mean to tell me you don’t check your email and phone calls for four hours and you’re a wedding planner. Then she says “ Well I’m sorry did you want to rescheduled” I told her I actually took half the day from work to go see this place and all I wanted was at least a call back, if the appointment was scheduled and confirmed and I made the attempt to call you that’s not too much to ask for. I just felt like I wasn’t a priority in her scheduling. She then had the audacity to say, “Well I guess this is better then and hung up”. Well yeah I guess you like losing business, I’m glad I found out about this kind of service prior to even spending money on this place.

Dream wedding venue

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!!!

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.
