Our goal is to create the perfect wedding experience for each individual couple.

Magnolia Fields FAQ


What prices do packages start at?

Please call us for details!


How does catering work?

Magnolia Fields has in-house catering, but if you'd prefer to bring in your own caterer that is perfectly fine for a small outside catering fee." Since it will be up forever and I'm not sure if we will always use the same caterer.


How do decorations work?

The classic elegance of the interior and exterior colors and decor make it possible to show up and have an event with little to no added decorations, however, it also makes for the perfect base to an extremely colorful and creative event as well.


What is the rain plan?

Magnolia Fields has a large outdoor pavilion, making rain no problem at all.
