About Dixon Gallery & Gardens

[Please contact the Dixon for the most up-to-date availability. The WeddingWire calendar is not updated regularly and does not necessarily show the latest open and booked dates. The Dixon can book weddings (ceremony-and-reception, reception-only, and rehearsal dinners) up to a year in advance; ceremony-only events may be booked up to 3 months in advance and vow exchange booking times vary.]

Tucked away in the Woodland Gardens, the Hughes Pavilion at the Dixon is an elegant venue that can be transformed to fit any style. The large skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows of the Pavilion offer ample light and a panoramic view of the woolands, 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 80-120 seated inside (plus 50-100 seated outside) for a sit-down/served meal. Wedding rental includes:

  • Complimentary parking and a parking lot guard (valet services not offered)
  • A selection of tables and chairs for use at the Pavilion, as well as setup and breakdown of those
  • A catering kitchen
  • Ceremony rehearsal time (if applicable) and engagement photo time
  • A Dixon manager-on-duty to help manage the venue during your event (please note, the Dixon does not provide wedding coordination services).

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. Please visit http://www.dixon.org/venue-rental for more information.

    The best venue in Memphis

    I can't imagine having my wedding at any other venue in Memphis. The Dixon is SO beautiful, we hardly did any decorating -- it wasn't needed. Sarah Catmur was incredibly thorough and professional. I don't have any complaints. If we could do it all over again, we'd pick the Dixon every time. It really made our wedding special.

    Sarah Catmur rocks! We walked in and fell in love with the entire atmosphere and staff! We cannot wait to have our wedding here and share the secret beauty of Memphis with all our loved ones.

    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.
