About

On WeddingWire since 2023

The Raymond Venue is located in Raymond, MS, and invites couples to celebrate their love in a dreamy garden setting. This historic property can host each happy moment of your day, from your vows and photoshoot to an unforgettable evening beneath the stars. The heart of Jackson, Mississippi, is only 30 minutes away, ensuring your out-of-town guests arrive with ease.

Facilities and Capacity

Invite your loved ones to this charming retreat tucked away from the big city, and celebrate your day how you like. Upon arrival, you'll have exclusive access to all 6,000 square feet of this beautiful property. Begin your day in your elegant get-ready suite before saying 'I do' in the open air. Your groom and groomsmen will love our swanky Bird Dog lounge as their Groom Suite. Outside, you'll find lush gardens and verdant trees that create the perfect backdrop for an outdoor ceremony. Wed at last, you and your new spouse can explore the grounds for swoon-worthy portraits as your guests enjoy a glass of bubbly. The lawns can also play host to fun outdoor games, including corn hole.

Its soaring ceilings, exposed white brick, and rustic chic aesthetic will leave you breathless.

Exceeded every expectation in a venue!

While looking for a wedding venue, I always dreamed of having my wedding in my hometown, so it says A LOT on why we chose The Raymond Venue, which is about twenty minutes away from our hometown. From the moment we stepped foot on The Raymond's property, we were immediately shown their love and hospitality. This isn't just a wedding venue. This is a place filled with some of the most wonderful people you will ever meet that truly go out of their way to make sure your wedding day is perfect! On top of the amazing people who work there, this venue has everything you need. From a gorgeous bridal sweet for you and your girls to get ready in, to a cool and relaxed grooms suite for your guy and his friends, to an indoor/outdoor option, a something borrowed room that will help decorate your entire wedding, a bar service that takes care of everything and leaves you not having to stress about beverages, a gift shop with the CUTEST items, this venue has it all. The venue exceeded all expectations, but it was the staff of The Raymond Venue that I will always remember when I think back to our wedding day!

The Best Experience!

We could not have had a better experience at The Raymond. Claire was fabulous, both before, during and after the wedding. Even the smallest detail was taken care of and I was able to fully enjoy my daughter's wedding. They even had a list of preferred vendors to select from when we didn't know who to use. Those recommendations were also helpful and appreciated and did not steer us wrong. Without hesitation, I would recommend The Raymond for ANY event needs.

My love for design and creating a welcoming and beautiful space for family and friends to enjoy fills my cup. Hosting friends around a beautiful table and bringing people together to share amazing food, drinks, and laughs is one of my greatest joys.

It has been my honor to help breathe new life and energy into this space in the heart of our downtown historic district. We are so thankful for this unique community and love sharing it with others near and far. There is always a celebration going on. Cheers!

I like to tell people I’m not from Mississippi, but it’s the place I’ve lived the longest. Sixteen years to be exact. I love Mississippi; her people, her history, and her beauty. Raymond has always been my home, even when it wasn’t.

When I first saw the property that is now home to The Raymond, The Bird Dog, and The Yellow Feather I just knew that one day it would be something. I also knew that I wanted to be part of making that happen.

I get to live my dream every day. We get to be a part of a community of celebration and light. And if you know us at all, you know we LOVE to celebrate.

My journey as venue manager began at The Raymond in early 2021. I was immediately drawn to this historic space and its kind and highly motivated owners. It felt like somewhere I was supposed to be. Day to day at The Raymond, I find joy in bringing clarity to situations through good communication and organization. My other passions include floral design (Moxie Floral), event planning, photography, and good food. It is a blessing to bring helpful knowledge and a listening ear to all the clients I get to meet at The Raymond.
