Charming and Historic Citrus Grove in Bradenton, FL
If you are looking for a wedding Venue in the Tampa Area with some great Florida Nature Scenery check out this location. Mixon’s in the Grove, also known as Mixon’s Fruit Farm, is one of our favorite wedding venues in Manatee County. When you have a wedding at Mixon’s in the Grove, you will be surrounded by tropical landscaping, a garden setting and an orange grove.
This the wedding of Brandy & Kevin Anderson. We did the first look before the ceremony so to have enough daylight time for pictures around the venue.
Mixon’s in the Grove is located just south of Highway 64 near I-75 in Bradenton, Florida. There are so many opportunities for some creative and unique wedding photos and video. The beautiful garden gazebo, with the Koi Pond, Waterfull, and lush tropical greenery makes a great background and will make your colors “pop”, because there is no major backlighting issues to deal with. The “Mixon’s Fruit Farm Mural” offers a very colorful backdrop. We also like to utilize the Wooden Crates area, which on this particular wedding, we just did not have time for, but it makes for some great unique farm shots. The garden walking path with a variety of landscaping, offers several areas for some great wedding photography.
We mounted a GoPro on the Gazebo which gaved a unique angle of bride and groom as well as the guests. We used for 5 Cameras for this wedding, 3 DSLRs, a Traditional Video Camera and a GoPro. We used 2 Canon 7d Mark ii, and a Canon 70d, Canon xf 305, as well as a Phantom 3 drone for aerial shots.
The staff at Mixon’s in the Grove are always very friendly and the food is great. For more info on having a wedding at Mixon’s Fruit Farm see Mixon’s Weddings in the Grove
