Tucked away in the Woodland Gardens, the Hughes Pavilion at the Dixon is an elegant venue that can be transformed to fit any mood. The large skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows of the Pavilion offer ample light and a panoramic view of the gardens, and the surrounding terraces (the largest of which can be tented by an outside rental company) allow your event to spill into the outdoors. Our sprawling 17 acre grounds house two garden spaces to choose from for a ceremony: the sweeping expanse of the South Lawn and the more intimate circle of the newly renovated (early 2019) Bowlin Stage.
The Hughes Pavilion is the perfect setting for a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner, and it can accommodate up to 200 for a cocktail-style reception using both the inside and terraces, or 100-120 seated inside (plus 50-75 seated outside) for a sit-down/served meal. Wedding rental includes:
The Dixon is perfect for lovers of classic architecture, beautiful gardens, and lush woodlands, and its unique role as a garden and gallery open to the community means you can visit and enjoy the place where you said "I do!" for years to come.

The Dixon was very accommodating from the first time we went to see the venue. They are open to catering from anyone (with proper paperwork), set up and take down, music (11pm city noise ordinance), do it all yourself or having someone else do it for you. They were prompt with responding and always willing to let us come and see the venue for certain questions and concerns we had. They kept the grounds looking amazing and of course the mosquitos came out during our rehearsal so they were quick to tell us they were putting down special repellant for the wedding to help keep the mosquitos down. They gave us adequate time and space to carry out all that we needed for our special day. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a beautiful and pain free, easy to work with venue and staff.Sent on 10/18/2016

We absolutely loved having our reception at the Dixon. Sarah was so sweet, patient, and helpful and got us all the information we needed to create the perfect night! We had a night time reception at The Hughes Pavilion and it was the perfect setting, I loved being able to have lots of space and indoor/ outdoor options!Sent on 02/16/2018
