WELCOME TO THE RAYMOND TUCKED AWAY NEAR JACKSON, MS The Raymond venue is listed on the National Historic Register as the Raymond Motor Company. Originally a 1920’s garage warehouse, it set empty on the town square for decades. Our dream was to create a space for community and celebration in the heart of our charming downtown. It has been our joy to carefully restore it with extra thought and intention to share a most dreamy and awe-inspiring space. The Raymond includes a DREAMY Bridal Suite, a SWANKY Groom's Suite/Lounge called The Bird Dog, an outdoor ceremony space, and an indoor/outdoor reception space. From the original exposed “chippy” brick walls and barrelled ceiling, handcrafted light fixtures, and original factory windows, The Raymond lends both character and history. With a high-end finish out and a wide-open blank canvas, you have the option of both simple and elegant and everything in between. Our outdoor ceremony space is nestled in our enchanting garden among lush greens and hidden away for intimacy. Within walking distance are old churches, antebellum homes, historical markers, and our iconic Courthouse that is celebrated as one of the state’s finest Greek Revival public buildings. With breathtaking views at every angle, we believe our venue to be truly magical. We are owned and operated by two friends and visionaries who are local residents who join many others thinking that Raymond is truly a hidden gem with untold potential. We are delighted to collectively realize a dream and fulfill a commitment to serve our community and state and provide a beautiful celebration space for all to enjoy. We want to be known as the venue that loves a celebration and that genuinely cares about you and the details of your big day. Cheers!
