At Magnolia Bend, we can bring your wedding and special event ideas to life. Our picturesque Wedding Venue offers everything you can dream of to ensure a beautiful day for you and your guests. Established in 2019, our celebrations have been the talk of the community, and we want to keep it that way.
In 2015, my husband and I attended the gorgeous wedding of our friends. I was blown away by the venue. So much so, that I couldn't get it out of my mind long after the wedding was over. With a background in art, design, event planning, weddings, and a career in hospitality, I felt that this was my calling. After the birth of our first child, Lilly, I spent my maternity leave tending to our new baby and drawing up a business plan. A year and a half later, we were ready to begin construction.
I named the venue Magnolia Bend for several reasons. My Great Aunt, Betty Smith, who was like a Grandmother to me, loved Magnolias. They were all over her house, and there is a large Magnolia tree right beside her porch. That porch, as well as my childhood home are both in walking distance of our location. I loved playing with the big Magnolia leaves when I was a child. She passed away the week our Lilly was born. I wanted to honor her memory. We decided on Bend, due to the extreme curves on Flagon Rd, our location. It is the community I grew up in, and was proud to return home to.
Our style is French Country. I only realized after it was built that it was completely inspired by my favorite childhood books. The Secret Garden and Anne of Green Gables leading the pack.
