Wonderful, Amazing, Beautiful!
My wedding coordinator, Brandy, honestly became my best friend while we were setting up for the wedding. She was my hero when I forgot something, and was super helpful when I felt nervous or stressed out. The Pavilion at Mixon Farms is a beautiful venue, with an amazing staff that really does become part of your family.Sent on 06/06/2019

We love working with Mixons! Beautiful venue!
A wonderful venue for a wedding. I especially like their gazebo!
Mixon's In The Grove is one of the most lovely places to have a Florida wedding. The indoor/outdoor feel is so tropical and warm. Call them for a tour.
