Venue Features
The Scene:
The Dixie Gin is set on 3 acres in the middle of Louisiana farmland. There are endless photo ops around the property. And at harvest time, cotton fields create the perfect backdrop! Certain structures on the property date back 100+ years adding history to this unique venue. The main building was rebuilt in 1952 using tin as opposed to the original wooden structure. The history and age of our venue adds immense charm and character to your event!
Design:
Inside the gin itself, you are greeted with a magnificent 7ft x 7ft chandelier. Throughout the venue, there are large bulb string lights that provide the perfect lighting for entertaining. Outside under the covered ceremony area we have 20 antique church pews along with a 4ft x4ft chandelier. 
Standout Venue Features:
From the moment your guests arrive at our venue they should feel at home. We have staff to help you in any way possible, from directing you where to park to bartenders serving you drinks form our gorgeous mahogany bar.
