I'm still receiving compliments 2 weeks later!

I can't say enough about the awesome experience that we had at Magnolia Plantation for my daughter's wedding reception.

Their attention to detail is exceptional, and they took care of absolutely everything! We had no worries from the beginning of the planning process until the end of the reception. Thanks to everyone at Magnolia Plantation for making my daughter's reception so memorable!

My husband and I got married on September 14th 2013 and had our reception at Mangnolia Plantation. The service was impecable, they took care of every detail and made sure my husband and I enjoy our special day. The manager was very easy to work with, since our first... Read More appointment she made everything so easy for us. Price was good too, they include a lot of things like center pieces and candles so we saved money on these things. Also we didn't need too many flowers. We only had rose petals on tables since center pieces were big and very elegant. Food is ok, I wasn't WOWed by the menu but I have to say my husband is a great chef so I'm a little spoil with food. However, I really liked the hors d'oeuvres, they were yummy and were served all night until reception was over. Same with buffet food. The only thing I didn't like was the DJ, we had a band so the DJ was suppossed to play only during the band's break. We gave him a list of the songs we wanted to be played and he did play the songs but he didn't mix the songs, there were seconds of silence between songs and he even repeated same song twice, one after the other. In general, I'm very happy with this venue, they took good care of us and my guests, they were very organized, and the room was very nice decorated.
