Mixon's has been super helpful all the way through the planning process. Sheri keeps me on track and is really good at tolerating all my weird requests (like having a half of a chandler) and I am so thankful that I chose Mixon's as the venue. I highly recommend Mixon Fruit Farms for many events, not just weddings. I can see us going back to have an anniversary get together!

Mixon's is an absolutely beautiful place to get married. We had both our ceremony and reception at the venue, for 50 guests. The gazebo is perfect for an intimate ceremony, and the bride/groom rooms were super helpful. A few days later I found out that there was a temporary issue with power for the DJ, and the florists had to alter their construction of some pieces, but I never knew about any of these things the day of because Mixon's worked with my vendors to help find quick solutions. I enjoyed working with Sheri and the bartender (I didn't get their name) was fantastic. We also used Mixon's wine and mini orange marmalade jars as our favor, which were easy to arrange and a big hit. I would highly recommend that you visit the venue in person (preferably on a weekend, when another wedding might be setting up). Seeing it in person was helpful to visualize whether or not it would work for what we needed. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but walking into the garden is like going into another world. It was more on the affordable side, depending on the size and date of your wedding. The venue itself can't be beat, and we got some amazing photos. I have been recommending to all my friends!

Sheri was extremely helpful in planning my wedding as needed. Michelle was there on our wedding day and was very helpful with keeping the event going, reminding us of things, and keeping everything going smoothly. The site is absolutely beautiful and we received a lot of compliments about that. Thank you!

What a night to remember. We had a night wedding and let me tell you what a fantastic choice. Kathy Decker was our saving grace, she is professional and was always there to answer any question and we had alot, she took the time to explain things that we weren't sure how to do and on the day of our wedding she was there to make sure everything went smoothly. The lighted pavillion and gazebo just added to the beauty. For our guests that weren't able to join us they were given the opportunity to watch via close cuircut tv that they provided, though there was no sound they were at least able to watch the wedding and reception. The catering was done through Mixon using Orange Blossom Catering and the raves from our guest made it all the better, the servers were attentive to both the Bride and Groom and the table settings were perfect. You cannot go wrong using both Mixons and Orange Blossom Caterers . Thank you for making my only daughter Wedding a Night to remember.

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!

Debbie and Kathy were both extremely helpful and willing to work with unique requests. They were very helpful the day of the event in working with our parents to make sure things happened the way they needed to allowing us to interact with our guests and be available to take pictures with our photographer. The catering menu was very flexible and was offered at a very reasonable rate as compared to other local vendors. The linen rentals that were arranged for us were perfect, and when we realized two days before the event that we had an extra table, we were able to remove the linens from the rental as well. Overall, this is one decision I'm glad we made the way we did.

Love, love, loved our venue. Our photographer, guests, and other vendors all commented on how great the setting was. For the value, you can't beat it. I recommend this to any bride and groom looking for an outdoor venue without the cliche of having it at the beach or the worry of getting rain/wind/cold'ed out. You can bring in any professional caterer, which saved us a bundle. I recommend ordering some alcohol from Mixon's, because if you work with them, they will work with you. We didn't have to pay any additional charges to bring in our own wine because we ordered some wine and the kegs from them. They were so professional and Kathy did everything she could to make sure our day was perfect. Highly recommended!

This is a BEAUTIFUL place to get married! There are so many great spots for pictures, and the setup is very convenient, with the getting-ready rooms, ceremony, and reception areas all close together. So many of our wedding guests told us this was the prettiest wedding they had ever been to, and we didn't even do much decorating.

Kathy Decker, the wedding coordinator, is fantastic! She really knows the business, and she was so helpful when making decisions and planning out the big day. I only wish she could have been there on our actual wedding day to make sure things ran a little more smoothly! She knew all the details of our wedding. Instead, the alternative coordinator was there - she didn't know all of the details and seemed to be somewhat impatient, making us feel a little rushed and unorganized during some parts of the wedding.

Overall, we were highly satisfied with using Mixon's as our wedding venue!

Sheri is the best! She was very helpful and personable. Her personality helped me to remain calm during all the crazy planning of my wedding.

Very beautiful venue and cost effective. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the location. Our guests loved it, as well!
It was the perfect size for our 140+ guests. Great dancing space, with beautiful views for our pictures.
