Dodson Farm – A high end chapel surrounded by a lush expanse of southern grassland

 

Venue location: Starkville, MS

What we believe makes them stand out as a luxury Mississippi wedding venue:

Dodson Farm is the only farm-esque venue you’ll find on this list for a reason.  When looking for luxury Mississippi wedding venues, the temptation is to throw out everything even leaning farm direction, but this farm carefully pairs together what some may deem “southern aesthetic” with modern luxuries and experience.

 

Dodson Farm’s expansive grounds with manicured grasslands, towering centuries old hardwoods, and seasonal natural floral scapes offer a haven abounding in southern beauty while also leaving room for customization to your modern liking.

 

Not to mention, Dodson Farm also possesses horses that LOVE to pose with couples to create a Mississippi glam for your wedding day portraits.  When searching to create this list of luxury Mississippi wedding venues we simply had to have Dodson Farm as your go-to southern motif luxury venue.

About our photography service:

“Des was so so so helpful! She provided us with so much information and made the experience & planning so effortless for us. Des is so much more than a photographer and planner, she is a friend. She makes you feel so comfortable and like you have known her for years.” -J+J

The Jefferson – Repeat award winning venue with Oxford amenities

 

Venue location: Oxford, MS

What we believe makes them stand out as a luxury Mississippi wedding venue: 

The Jefferson stands out as a luxury Mississippi wedding venue in our opinion due to its flexibility for curation.  Here you’ll inevitably want to hire an event designer to help you transform this place to fit your unique vision.  Tightly wound bouquets, bright and washed out photography, and hair teased to high heaven will make you think outdated Mississippi wedding, but you won’t find that aesthetic here at The Jefferson.

 

The venue’s interior and exterior provide a naturally moody and rich vibe that exudes class naturally.  Pair that with the variation in rooms for the ceremony, reception, dinner, you name it, and it truly is a blank slate screaming class for your luxury Mississippi wedding.

 

This venue is truly a photographer’s dream too due to varying wall textures and direction of light that make for the dreamiest couple’s portraits.  You’ll have a TON of variety in your final gallery!

What they believe helps them stand out as a luxury Mississippi wedding venue:

There is truly no other place like The Plant Venue! What makes our venue unique is not only the contemporary design or renovations, but the preservation of the building’s original structure and the balance between industrial and modern features. The Fondren Warehouse District, located a half-mile from Fondren, carries a long industrial history defined primarily by warehouse buildings that were built for manufacturing or distribution plants. Our building, originally built as a pipe distribution plant in the 1960’s, was left abandoned for over a decade until 2016 when we began to imagine a new life for this one-of-a-kind structure. In 2021, we officially opened our doors as “The Plant Venue” offering indoor and outdoor event spaces with an emphasis on modern interiors, natural elements, and preserved industrial history. Check out the about page here to see the building’s before and after! The venue’s history can be observed throughout the entire building as the original concrete beams soar above each space – a reminder of how far the building has come after bringing new life to an unlikely place. We are proud to be planted in Jackson, Mississippi and look forward to seeing more events come to life at The Plant Venue!

What they want every inquiring couple to know:

In the South, it is typical to see a “copy and paste” trend with event design, especially in the wedding industry. At The Plant Venue, we highly encourage clients to break through this ceiling and make their wedding day an authentic expression of their personal identities and unique love stories. The venue’s design definitely goes against the southern grain and we hope this allows clients to feel a sense of freedom in the expression of their wedding day!

 

What we believe makes them stand out as a luxury Mississippi wedding venue: 

The Plant Venue is on this luxury Mississippi wedding venue because our first impression of this venue was: WOW.

As a couple hoping for a luxury Mississippi wedding venue, we know that’s what you hope for a first impression of a venue too.  We honestly could not believe a venue like this existed in Mississippi, so we are proud to have this be a part of our list!  Welcome your guests to this modern and deliciously industrial campus with over 15,000 square feet of carefully designed event space.  At The Plant you’ll bounce between minimalist and maximalist areas boasting a tropical warmth in the bustling state capital of Jackson, Mississippi.  Take your luxury Mississippi wedding to the next level with the earth toned design in place.

 

Not to mention, this is every plant lover’s paradise!  If you’d deem yourself eco-friendly, you’ll need to heavily consider this luxury Mississippi wedding venue as it not only homes indoor and outdoor plants; it also is a modern work of art to revitalize a once abandoned warehouse.  We’ll be stoked to photograph your Mississippi wedding amidst towering tropical plants and capture the modern luxury Mississippi wedding you now know is possible!

Here’s what folks are saying about hiring us:

 

From the first conversation I had with Des I was at ease! When we began planning our intimate wedding, we were both lost on next steps and knew more about what we didn’t want than what we did. Des guided us through the whole planning process, and shared her expertise on picking the perfect location, creating a detailed timeline, and directing us to reliable and proven vendors. She made sure to understand what was important to us and help us incorporate our priorities into every part of the day. Most importantly, Des and Dan took incredible photos that captured every detail while hyping us up and making us feel comfortable the whole time. With Des you get a photographer, wedding planner, and someone who is willing to go to extreme lengths to make your vision a reality.

We cannot say enough good things about Des and Dan. To put it as simply as we can – if we were to do our wedding all over again, they would be the absolute first call we made. If you read nothing else, I cannot think of a better endorsement than that. Now, if you want details…

Where do we start? When you hire Des, you get so much more than a photographer. She was incredibly thoughtful in how she approached our wedding and made it the perfect expression of us and our relationship. Within the first couple conversations, she was able to get a solid grasp on who we are as a couple and as people and what was important to us. From there, she laid out our options to help us select the best sites for our ceremony and photos and then was able to work with us to create OUR perfect day. Des laid out the initial timeline for us, and then worked with us over the course of several months to make tweaks to it, making sure it was exactly what we wanted.

-Margaret & Mike
