1000 stars for Alda Ellis and her Magnolia Hill weddings!!! Our children were married there last weekend and it was beyond a fairytale!
Alda and Buddy are truly two of the most gracious people you will ever meet. Alda's organization and attention to every detail are surpassed only by her creative talent and her servant's heart.
I would challenge you to find a more special place or people to host your wedding venue!
Alda's Magnolia Hill was a such a blessing and we are very grateful for the opportunity we had to work with Alda!

The perfect venue with all the southern charm!
Alda handled everything for me! We were eloping and traveling from Florida. She handled the flowers, the cake, the music, and every single detail. It was the exact experience we were looking for with ALL the southern charm!
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.
