Perfect in every way!!!
Brandy is the absolute best!! She was our wedding coordinator (through Mixon’s) once we booked our reception at their venue. As a bride handling every little detail up until the day of our wedding, Brandy and her assistant, David, were by my side making sure any hiccup was taken care of most of the time without even letting me know. We rented out the farmhouse, also owned by Mixon’s, for myself and all of my bridesmaids that weekend and it worked out perfect! All 12 of us were able to comfortably sleep and had hair and makeup come to us the morning of the wedding. Our entire day went better than I could have ever imagined and I truly owe it all to the amazing support and attentiveness of the team we had by our side ♥️Sent on 01/28/2021

All around phenomenal!
The venue was everything we were looking for; charming, simple but elegant, plenty of space and all the extras we wanted, not to mention the variety of beautiful places to take photos. The family enjoyed the butterfly garden and the lawn games, the young ones really loved all the space to run and play and were absolutely fascinated to feed the koi fish. The staff themselves were amazing also. Brandy was with us from tour, to booking, to i do and was always ready to respond to my many questions. The other coordinators and staff that we interacted with were just as friendly and helpful. They really knew how to guide us in making the day go smoothly and beautifully.Sent on 03/23/2021

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.
