Everything we Hoped for!
We had an amazing experience with Alex & Jennifer. The professionalism, personality, and punctuality they had made it an easy experience for my dream wedding to come true. They really made me feel special, and didn't make me feel guilty for being a little selfish. They reminded every time we spoke that it was my day, and accommodated all of my wants.

He can develop a theme with innovative ideas and build it into event decor and entertainment that will impress clients and guests. He really enjoys events where the client trusts in the artistic approach to an idea, so the events are dripping with decor, detail and creativity which always makes the process that much more enriching.

With David on your team, you will have someone that will do his best and never give up. His words to live by are “Always aim high, work hard, and care deeply about what you believe in. And, when you stumble, keep faith. And, when you are knocked down, get right back up and never listen to anyone who says you can’t or shouldn’t go on.” — Hillary Clinton
Jen as we call her, is a rarity in the area, because she is born and raised in Bradenton Florida, not far from Mixon to be exact. Jen who is married and has 4 children, comes to Mixon having over 16 years of wedding experience, but was born with an eye for décor and design.
Jen’s background in graphic design and production management makes her super helpful when it comes to visualizing and making it work logistically. Her favorite wedding “trend” is décor done all the way. She loves helping brides bring their décor to the next level, even inexpensively, but carrying it all the way through the entire event in a way that is not over done.
At Mixon, we call her the Bow Whisperer, because her bows are ALWAYS perfect and uniform! As a hopeless romantic Jen’s favorite movie is “The Notebook”, and quote “Every love story is beautiful, but ours is my favorite.” When you visit on a weekend you can catch Jen coordinating, creating, and decorating with a big smile!

She specializes in personalizing diverse events for each client and handling stressful event situations with grace. Her signature is creative and tasteful designs with incredible attention to detail and structured + logistical event flow.

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.
