The Mitchell House was the perfect spot to host our engagement party! The gardens are beautiful, and it is a great venue because it has ample space on the inside and outside. Phyllis was a pleasure to work with, she went above and beyond! The food was delicious and the flowers were beautiful!

The Mitchell House fulfilled every bit of our expectations and much more for a beautiful, stress-free wedding day! On April 6, 2013, my daughter was married at our church and then had the reception at the Mitchell House. At our first meeting with Ms. Phyllis, the precious owner of the Mitchell House, my daughter was taken in by the exquisite style of the house and beautiful gardens. We heard from several of our friends how delicious the food was and how wonderful the amenities were. The coconut shrimp was out of this world along with the baked potato salad. All the food was elegantly displayed with linen tablecloths, crystal dishes and real silverware. Ms. Phyllis and Ms. Patsy assured us we would have a stress-free day and she was so right! The staff was very accommodating with all details of our planning sessions and made it very easy for my daughter to plan for her very special day. And they have an onsite florist who was able to take care of the flowers for the bridal party and the reception, which were beautiful. We also received a free cake as part of our wedding package, and it was spectacularly decorated and delicious. The covered pavilion, with the sparkling lights overhead, was decorated beautifully. Our family and friends will have great memories forever of our special day! The 28 packages include your menu, exclusive use of The Mitchell House and Gardens, chairs, tablecloths, a wedding director, a wedding professional to perform your ceremony, a reception manager – and much more! Please call The Mitchell House first BEFORE you look anywhere else. Nothing else comes close! And all inclusion venue. And it's true -- you can have a stress-free wedding!

The Mitchell House and Gardens went above and beyond my expectations. I read a few reviews about how they seemed to not be able to keep straight which future bride they were talking to, and that the wedding director is a tad bossy(she was extremely professional).
The Mitchell House and Gardens staff clearly love what they do and they do it well. Karen and Patsy made my wedding out of this world. Karen made sure that everything was on track. The toast, cake cutting, dining, first dance,bouquet and garter toss. I didn't have to worry about a thing.
After all of our guests had left and as my husband and I were leaving to head to the car the whole Mitchell House and Gardens staff lined up and threw rice for us.
From the beginning I knew this was the place when I called and said that I had to move the wedding up by four months and if it was possible to be married in four weeks. Phyllis said "not a problem".
I recommend getting married here. 100% stress free experience!
Oh and the food was amazing!

Absolutely fabulous! This unassuming southern home opens to lush gardens. The interior is open and inviting. I loved the plantation home feel and the house required little additional decoration. I didn't have to blow my whole budget on live flowers. And the flowers I did buy were reasonable priced and gorgeous! The Mitchell House & Gardens has these great package events which are pre-planned and very budget-minded. When I was married at 19 and had a very small budget, I would have loved the option to have a package event. However, I was 34 and financially prospering this time around! So I choose to have a custom event. I rented the house for the entire day! It was wonderful!! I had brunch served for my close family and attendents...about 20 of us. The Mitchell House recommended a great stylist I met with in advance and arranged for her to come to The Mitchell House and do my hair & makeup while I relaxed in the Bridal Room upstairs, sipping champagne. The renewal ceremony was beautiful! The reception was a blast! It all seemed to fly by, even though we rented the house until midnight. There were so many friends and family to talk to and dancing! The DJ set up outside under the Pavillion where we held the ceremony and we had a fabulous time. The food was magnificient...scrumptious tenderloin...sauteed shrimp, andoule sausage and stone-ground grits (my special request). I'm not sure if the cake was my favorite dessert, or the brownies and wedding cookies. I just can't say enough about the wonderful service. Everyone I met with to plan the event and everyone there on our special day were priceless!! No detail was overlooked. During the planning, I arranged to meet with my DJ and my photographer at the Mitchell House...just one phone call to The Mitchell House and they scheduled the consultation and set aside additional time for me to meet there with everyone else. I loved that the food, the cake, the flowers, the tables and chairs, the set up, the clean up...was all taken care of by The Mitchell House! I knew everything was going to be taken care of for me just the way I wanted it to be.

Enjoyed everything about my wedding. They were open to all ideas. The only thing we really didn't like was that times were set to get in and get out. If you were there early even by a minute it was $100 and the same way if you were out a minute late. The cake they made just for us, the flowers they had to hunt down and were willing to do it for us. We had weather changes that day and they were working with us from the minute we got there to fix everything. Overall, it was a great wedding.

The Mitchell House & Gardens responded with the following comments:

MISLEADING: You choose your time. The Mitchell House offers Custom Events where you choose everything, especially "when" and "how long" you wish to have the facility. You may rent as many hours as you want.
Also, offered are 28 packages; some of which are "budget" packages which have a 5-hour time block. The party may add additional hours for $125 per hour Sunday - Thursday; $175 hours Friday or Sunday and $195 hour on Saturday.
With the budget events, the $100 security deposit is forfeited for early arrival or late departure.

This is a great one stop shop! I am very happy I used this facility. There were some cons about this place like having to deal with the one girl there. I am not sure if she is trying to hard to be professional but she came off as cold and snobby and I did not enjoy dealing with her. Another con is that if you are having a 7:00 pm wedding you are only able to get in the facility at 6:00 pm to get ready, take pictures, etc which does not leave a lot of time. Luckily no one was having a wedding the same day so we were able to buy some extra time and get into the facility at 4:30. The food was great, or so I was told. They did the flowers, catering, the cake so that was nice to not have to go around to a bunch of different vendors.

Beautiful location, wonderful staff, delicious cake & food! All of our guests expressed total enjoyment of the wedding and all the venue had to offer. Only things to look out for, they do not act as your “Master of Ceremony” so hire a planner or ask a friend/ family member to do the announcements and such, also there is no microphone sound system, so if you do not have a DJ you might want to rent something to provide this. The owner can be a bit pushy on the wedding day, she just is trying to ensure your timing (but no one is going to get up and leave if the bride is a few min late right?) The packages provide for anyone to fit in the budget. We went to a friend’s smaller wedding before ours and their food was wonderful also. Over all this venue turned out to be wonderful, just be patient with the staff o the day of.
