Venue Setting

The White Magnolia is an elegant country venue situated on a family owned and well-manicured, 110 acre working Quarter horse and commercial cattle farm. Located in Kentwood, Louisiana, just 30 minutes from both Hammond, Louisiana and McComb, Mississippi, The White Magnolia provides a mix of vintage charm and southern style. The barn sits atop a hill, boasting views of magnolia trees, open pasture, rolling hills, grazing cattle, oak trees and beautiful ponds.

The barn is constructed with huge pine post and beams, cut from the family's sawmill and aged to perfection. The whitewashed walls, thirty-foot vaulted ceilings, and vintage chandeliers create the perfect rustic canvas for the wedding of your dreams. Our beautiful pine flooring is perfect for your walk down the aisle or for dancing the night away. Our reclaimed, old brick fireplace continues through the thirty-foot vaulted ceiling, providing a magnificent backdrop for your ceremony or centerpiece for your reception. Leave the French doors on each side open to allow the outdoor breeze while enjoying the comforts of an indoor affair.

Inside Scoop

We put our heart and soul into building this venue, creating every detail for our perfect wedding day. Now we are excited to share it with others and help them create their dream wedding here, at The White Magnolia. My favorite color is white, yes that is why the entire venue is white, it also helps show off those perfect weathered post and beams. I love all things vintage and weathered old houses and baby animals. I enjoy riding horses with my hubby, decorating, taking care of the farm animals, and working outside. Come by for a site visit, I am excited to meet y'all.

Design:
We designed the venue for our very own wedding in May of 2016. While designing every detail I knew what I wanted as a Bride. I was hoping every other bride would want the same. 
Standout Venue Features:
The White Magnolia is located on a Family owned farm. During the day (before the wedding), you may see us bailing hay in the field, gathering cattle on horseback, or just handling our daily farm chores. Enjoy your stay in our guest cottages and wake up with a cup of coffee, rocking in the chairs on our cottage porches while watching the cattle graze.
