Weddings at The Dixon

Tucked away in the woodland gardens, the Hughes Pavilion at the Dixon is an elegant facility that can be transformed to fit any style. The large skylights and floor-to-ceiling windows of the Pavilion offer ample light and a panoramic view of the woodland gardens, and the surrounding terraces allow your event to spill into the outdoors. Our sprawling, 17-acre grounds house two garden spaces to choose from for a ceremony: the sweeping expanse of the South Lawn and the more intimate circle of the Bowlin Stage.

The Hughes Pavilion is the perfect setting for a wedding reception or rehearsal dinner, and it can accommodate up to 200 for a cocktail-style reception, or 100-120 seated inside (plus 50-75 seated outside). With this beautiful space, you receive complimentary parking and a parking lot guard, a selection of tables and chairs for use at the Pavilion, and a Dixon manager-on-duty to help manage the venue during your event.

The Dixon also offers the option to host a small vow exchange of 15 or less people in the gardens. For more information, please click here and contact the Venue Rental Coordinator.

To inquire about hosting your wedding event here, please contact us via the inquiry form on the main Venue Rental page.
