Best Mississippi Gulf Coast Venues | Gulf Coast Wedding Photographer

When looking for place to celebrate your wedding along the Mississippi Gulf Coast, ask a wedding photographer who’s been there! There are so many beautiful options along the beaches. So I figured I would take a moment to narrow down just a few of my favorites for weddings and sessions, in no particular order.

(One quick note, not all of these venues are directly along the coastline. I branched out a little and included gorgeous venues within an hour or so of the Mississippi Gulf Coast)

White House Hotel

The beautiful White House Hotel is a showpiece hotel and venue along the coast! Located in Biloxi, Mississippi this historic place is one that needs to be seen. Their website sums it up best: “The White House Hotel has its roots in Old Biloxi but also a firm foothold in the 21st century.” And for an added bonus, the beautiful beaches of South Mississippi are right across the road!

The Villa

The Villa is most certainly one of my favorite venues that I’ve had the pleasure of photographing multiple weddings at. I love the beautiful French countryside vibe of the building located in Carriere, Mississippi. Plus you have everything you need here for your wedding day! With inside and outside ceremony and reception options and the spacious getting ready suites, you never have to leave the property for your entire wedding day!

Three Lakes Manor

​Three Lakes Manor is family owned and operated in the heart of small town Poplarville, Mississippi. One thing that sets them apart is their resort style weekend rental! You and your guests have full access Friday – Sunday with lodging accommodations for up to 30 people. This gorgeous mansion is full of so many rooms that you can decorate to your hearts content!

Centennial Plaza

Centennial Plaza is a venue with great options for your wedding day! It’s known as the “crown jewel of the Mississippi Gulf Coast”. With stunning inside and outside locations for your wedding and reception, you can’t go wrong with this property! I love the adjacent bride and groom getting ready suites inside the chapel. And you can’t end the night without taking a moment to get a portrait in front of their giant water fountain just a few steps away!

Bay Saint Louis

The town of Bay Saint Louis, Mississippi is a quant little gem. The beach and harbor area give an amazing nautical and coastal vibe for any occasion. Whether you chose to have your wedding on the harbor dock, or bring your dog along for a beach engagement session, there are plenty of things to explore here!

Oak Crest Mansion Inn

“Where history meets luxury” This phrase very accurately describes the stunning venue of the Oak Crest Mansion Inn. Located in Pass Christian, Mississippi, the historic home, twelve tranquil acres, charming chapel, picturesque gazebo, pergola and manicured gardens create an ideal atmosphere for your wedding day!

Gulf Coast Wedding Photographer Honorable Mentions

There are a few other venues that I would love to add to this list that I’ve never shot at before! Honorable mentions go out to some of my dream venues: Infinity Farms (Carriere), The Old Place (Gautier), and The Venue at Anderson Oaks (Lucedale), and Cottonwood Manor (Perkinston).
