Your Wedding Ceremony
Plan Your “Dream Come True” Ceremony
Oak Crest Mansion Inn provides several on-site venues both outdoor and indoor, from which you may choose to exchange your vows. Every ceremony location offered provides you with a fairytale commemoration and picture perfect images that will last a lifetime. Our coordinators can provide contact information for third-party vendors that can create memorable moments. You can ask during your tour about romantic horse-drawn carriages, antique cars, and limousine arrivals your special ceremony will truly be a dream come true at Oak Crest Mansion Inn.
Outdoor weddings may take place among the centuries-old Oaks on the rolling lawn off the front veranda, in the picturesque outdoor gazebo, in the charming vine-covered pergola on the north side of The Mansion, or behind the house on the brick paved expanse with a view of the first in-ground pool in the state of Mississippi. Original antique fountains and beautiful traditional landscaping all share the outdoors and allow for beautiful backdrops for your event
The Mansion Chapel is a quaint structure filled with exquisite stained glass that can’t be missed. The backdrop for many romantic weddings and vow renewals, as well as private family worship and memorial services, this charming spot under the oak trees remains available for guests to use at any time during their stay. Whether you wish to admire the wood panels and gorgeous windows or sit for a moment of quiet reflection or prayer of gratitude, this serene spot is always uplifting to your spirit.
The airy gazebo is one of our favorite spots on our grounds. Breezes abound – natural and guided by the many ceiling fans – and it’s another great spot to admire 360-degree views of the property. We also periodically host old-fashioned community picnics and ice cream socials as well as cocktails and special events here – you can almost hear the jazz band playing now…
Another option is to hold your wedding at the nearby beach. The white sand and spectacular sunsets provide a lovely and romantic setting. With The Mansion two miles away, an easy drive to your subsequent reception makes this choice a dream come true for many couples.
Inclement weather — including extreme heat — during outdoor weddings and receptions is always a possibility. Acts of God and other inclement weather, regrettably, cannot be controlled by any of us. If you have a concern about the weather impacting your day, tent rentals can be arranged by your Oak Crest Mansion Inn Coordinators for an additional charge.
We are able to easily and comfortably accommodate stunning weddings for up to 300 guests in our recently added 6,000 square foot ballroom. If your choice is to marry in the perfectly appointed grand foyer with the elegantly curved staircase, or in the great room with its massive stone fireplace and gracious French doors leading to the outdoor beauty of the patio and back gardens, your guests will remember the drama and beauty of your ceremony.
