Where do I begin. This was the first place I had looked at for my wedding. I fell in love with it from the start. Larry and Sheila are wonderful and so very helpful. The property is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for a southern wedding! The food, flowers everything turned out just how I had hoped. If I was to give advise to anyone on where to get married, I would 100% reccomend Magnolia Manor.

From the moment we met Larry and Shelia we knew this was where we wanted to have our daughter's wedding. Being from out of town, this was the perfect venue as they handled most everything. We rented the plantation for the entire wedding weekend and the rehearsal dinner was there and the wedding party was able to stay on site for the entire weekend. They provided brunch for us both Saturday and Sunday morning. Everything here is strictly first class. The staff went above and beyond to make sure everything was perfect. We received so many compliments on the food. They were able to provide us with names of vendors which also made planning much easier. Shelia served as the wedding planner and was extremely helpful in planning. They are pros at planning weddings. Another thing we really liked was that we were able to provide our own alcohol which saved us a lot of money.
