Finding the perfect wedding venue was one of the first and most important decisions we made during the wedding planning process. It was easy to fall in love with the charm, beauty, and homeyness of ... Read more the Mims House. But just as important for me, was to find a venue that would treat our family and friends like honored guests. I hoped that Priscilla and Brooke were going to take care of our guests, the same way that they poured their hearts into the restoration of the Mims House. Now that our wedding day is behind us, I can say that I am so deeply grateful that we booked this venue. They did just that. And to top it off, they made me feel like a very special bride. We had a great experience from the first time we toured the home. The owners talked openly and respected our budget. I loved watching the home evolve during our engagement. We were one of the early couples to book at the very end of 2014 when renovations had nearly begun. It was so cool to watch Brooke and Priscilla's vision for the Mims House come together. I adored visiting and exploring as much as I could... and was always welcomed! They even invited us to their grand opening party, and that's when we knew that our wedding wasn't only going to be beautiful, it was going to be FUN. Brook and Priscilla know how to host a darn good party! Since our wedding, our family and friends gush about how much they LOVED our wedding venue. The bridal suite and grooms suite were extremely accommodating and comfortable. I had a bridal party of 6 and we had plenty of space to relax, spread out, and get pampered. I imagine this venue would be perfect for larger bridal parties too. Did I mention the decor? To die for. It seemed like this venue has thought of all the small details we would need for our wedding. From extra hairspray, to stocked mini refrigerators, clean bathrooms, and extra umbrellas-- everything was covered. I could go on and on. If you are looking for an exceptional wedding venue, pick Mims!
