Elegant Dream Wedding
My daughter just married at Alda's Magnolia Hill and what keeps coming to mind is that she had the wedding brides dream of. The setting is beautiful in a historic home, beautifully furnished, with a lakeside ceremony and carriage house venue for the reception. No detail was overlooked. So many special moments were orchestrated by Alda and Buddy that were just made for amazing photography. We can't wait for the pictures! This was the perfect place to celebrate my daughter and new son in law's perfect wedding day.Sent on 09/30/2020

Fairy tale Wedding
My daughter's wedding was an absolute fairy tale. Buddy and Alda Ellis at Alda's Magnolia Hill define southern charm and class. The property is gorgeous! A beautiful lake, horse drawn carriage, beautiful decor and the kindest most considerate folks you will ever work with. Alda has every detail in mind. They truly get to know the bride and groom (and parents) and can make all of your wedding dreams come to life. Planning during a pandemic and an approaching hurricane....they always had a Plan B if needed, but with many thoughts and prayers we were able to do exactly what our daughter had always dreamed of. If you want 5star plus class, with the finest people you will ever meet, Alda's Magnolia Hill is the venue for you!Sent on 10/14/2020
Alda has an eye for decoration, planning, as well as the finest vendors to work with & the cake was included and perfect!
When you choose Alda's Magnolia Hill, you not only get and incredible place to celebrate your marriage, but you gain family at the same time! Mrs. Alda and Mr. Buddy will take care of you from start to finish and ensure that you have the perfect day. They think of every little detail to make your day special. We have worked closely with Alda's Magnolia Hill and have nothing but positive things to say about them. I highly recommend everything the beautiful Alda's Magnolia Hill has to offer.
Alda and the team are by far one of the best around! I've had the pleasure of working with them several times and I am always excited when I know my couples have chosen Alda's for their venue.
Alda loves weddings! Their location is beautiful and they do everything to make you feel special!
