Ashley and Kaiser Harriss

Owners and Hosts

These two fell in love and they married in Natchez, Mississippi, at a gorgeous downtown antebellum home with Pam Harriss as their Wedding Coordinator.  Fast forward a few short years and they now own this stunningly gorgeous Natchez Plantation, Brandon Hall.  Dreams do come true.

Kaiser, a Natchez native, and Ashley, a Southern born & bred beauty, know how to “make it work”.  Their studying, planning, saving and dreaming paid off.  The timing was right to jump in with both feet. And they did.

With Kaiser’s financial background and Ashley’s attention to every detail, this duo has what it takes to run the best wedding, party, and bed & breakfast venue in town.  Take a load off, sit back and relax.  Your event will be professionally handled.  All with a smile.

Come out and meet them—they live on the property.  You may catch Ashley tending to the gardens or Kaiser on a tractor, but they will stop to greet you.

Only when two thoroughly plan out their dreams can the reality pay off in such a fabulous way.  And it did.

Pam Harriss

Event Director and Wedding Coordinator

Pam, reigning over beautiful Natchez and mother of Kaiser, is the wedding coordinator extraordinaire!  Forty plus years of pleasing brides and their mothers and families, Pam has a God given talent. From her attention to every detail to her shining personality, she will make your big day one for the books. Her motto, “stress free weddings are the most memorable weddings”, really show in her planning.  Allowing the bride, her mother and the entire wedding party to enjoy every minute is her objective.  So, sit back, relax, let loose, enjoy and dance the night away… all while knowing Pam is making sure your dream wedding will be perfect.

Natchez is not her only claim to fame.  Pam has planned and successfully completed weddings in other Mississippi cities as well as in South Carolina, Louisiana, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.  One can say this coordinator has seen a few weddings in her career.  She loves a challenge, takes on the tasks and puts on a flawless production.  Over her years in business she has seen it all.  Smoothing the nerves of the bride as if she was her own daughter to smiling while solving the unexpected, Pam goes above and beyond.

Let Pam bring your dream to the reality you have always wished upon.

Mike Calcote

Innkeeper

Mike Calcote, our Innkeeper, has been in the Hospitality Industry for as long as he can remember.  Having worked at other stately Natchez homes, Mike brings years of quality experience to Brandon Hall.  As the Innkeeper, Mike dutifully carries out the daily routine of our Bed & Breakfast.  Making the guests happy, content and comfortable is his goal and is met regularly.  His bright smile and can-do attitude keeps our guests coming back time and again.

Married to his high school sweetheart, Linda, they have three grown children and five grandchildren.  Though family is first in his book, he will make your stay feel as if you are one of his family members.  Be sure to ask him for a “Mike’s Mini Tour”, a nostalgic trip back in time around Brandon Hall.

Sammie

Meet our Sammie, the unofficial mascot of the plantation.  Normally found basking in the sunlight on the porch, Sammie rules the outdoor kingdom.

While not the friendliest four legged cutie, she does warm up to strangers pretty quick.  Give her a warm smile and soft pat, she will be your new friend.

Enjoy your time with us and meet the many plantation fur babies we have acquired.
