    A Fairytale Venue

    I could not recommend Mississippi Gardens enough! The venue absolutely sells itself and the amazing staff, owners (Jordan + Jamie), and catering coordinator (Erin H) are the cherry on top. Planning a wedding during COVID absolutely stinks and Jamie + Erin made it an absolute breeze. They were SO flexible and accommodating during these crazy times. They were SO responsive - Jamie and Erin called me after hours to walk through a game plan as new restrictions continued to come out with Walz, and they made it happen! They helped me move my entire wedding day one day up so we could move forward with the reception and ceremony. I have nothing but amazing things to say about this team and venue. We will forever cherish the Gardens for giving us our perfect day.

    12/10! Hands down best experience!

    Leopold’s was so wonderful to work with through the entire experience-even with COVID. Their communication is amazing and they were so accommodating. Erin, the coordinator, answered every little question I had and she’s just great. The day of the wedding, we waited till the last possible minute before having to decide to move it inside. The team and owners did a great job resetting up the arch and floral arrangements inside-making it so beautiful! They then repurposed it for the reception. They were just so incredible and I honestly don’t think any other place could top them! Jamie and Jordan are so personable and this place is GORGEOUS! I’m so happy we went with them and it was truly the best day ever due to their help.

    Wonderful Venue!

    Leopold's Mississippi Gardens is an absolutely beautiful venue! And, Mr. & Mrs. Leopold are absolutely amazing! From the beautiful venue to the service, everything was perfect. They were extremely helpful and allowed us to have the wedding we had envisioned. We truly could not have picked a better venue and hosts to share this part of our lives with! Thank you Leopold's!

    Leopold's Mississippi Gardens's reply:

    Thank you so much Maly! That is so sweet and we had a blast with your friends and family plus Pete! XOXO (at a social distance of course) lol!
