Vintage charm with a Southern Twist...


Having a wedding planner is a MUST! As a bride, you start your wedding planning journey with lots of ideas and things to check off your list. Having someone take all that and make it your dream wedding come true, is exactly what we do at The Pavilion. We know that as the big day gets closer, having someone execute your décor, your timeline, rehearsal, check in your vendors, and make sure the day runs smooth, is something all brides want. All too often, couples rely on family to execute their dream day, which keeps them from truly enjoying it and causes much stress for those taking on this huge responsibility. That’s where our DREAM TEAM of Event Planners comes into play. We WANT your day to be exactly what you WANT it to be. We also know that the day goes by so fast, so why spend it being “on duty”, rather than being the new married couple? With our “Limited’ and an “Ultimate” coordinator packages, we are able to give you those helping hands that every bride needs. We handle everything; from decorating, day of schedule, communication with vendors, to cake cutting, and of course making sure your glass is always full and everyone is smiling all night. The Event Planners at Mixon Farms cherish every wedding and treat the wedding day with love and attention to detail. Don’t believe we’re the DREAM TEAM? Just check out some of our reviews and see which package will best suit your dream wedding come true!


We highly recommend one of these services, as it takes a lot of stress off  the bride.
