We were looking for a venue somewhere between Dallas, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia. We found The Jefferson and loved the pictures. We booked without seeing the venue in person. Lisa Mills (venue manager) was helpful in finding vendors for flowers, rentals and food. We made a... Read More trip to Oxford in February. The building is as beautiful as the pictures. We were able to meet with all of the vendors in a 3 day weekend. That was the only trip we made to Oxford before wedding week. Although we were out of sight, the vendors all followed through with their promises. During the three days before the wedding. Lisa allowed us to visit the venue several times. She continued to smile as we changed the rehearsal time from noon to 2pm to 5pm. When rain threatened she arranged valet parking. She helped with sound and music stands for the outside ceremony. Throughout she listened to our ideas and helped them come to life. And she watched the weather as anxiously as we did. The building is stunning. Janet's dress, the vintage china, the flowers, and the arch that Clint built to define the space by the lake all coordinated with the look of the venue to create a gorgeous evening.

We absolutely loved this venue! We used the Faulkner and Lakeside rooms for our wedding reception (approximately 250+ guests). It was gorgeous, spacious, and incredibly accommodating! We didn't have to put a ton of money towards decorations, lights, flowers, etc because the... Read More venue is breathtaking by itself. The rustic shed towards the entrance and lake area were perfect for our wedding party and couple photos. The coordinating security company were able to help cover security, valet, and the sparkler exit flawlessly. Their sound system accommodated our solo musician and background music perfectly. The bridesmaids, some family members, and myself were able to eat, get dressed, and take photos in the bridal dressing room/conference room - such a lovely environment. We also had yard games set out near the lake and guests loved it! I'm so glad we had such a great indoor and outdoor space for everyone to enjoy. Lisa was absolutely incredible from start to finish - she made sure our every need was met. I've had so many comments from guests complimenting how gorgeous our venue was. My single comment to give future brides a heads up - you have to pay an additional fee to start setting up the day before, that morning, or even a few hours before the event. Our other vendors were able to do it that morning no problem, but we did a lot of planning to make sure that everything went smoothly (so we didn't have to pay to get in the day before). Just keep in mind that you'll have to tack on a little more to that price in order to get everything set up. But I promise, the price was worth it! There were times that we considered changing the ceremony from our church to the Grand Hall because we loved the entire venue so much. Overall, the Jefferson played a huge role in making our special day a fairytale!
