Magnolia Gardens is an absolutely BEAUTIFUL venue well worth the price, very reasonable compared to other venues like it. I would advise those who use the indoor reception area to check the sound system prior to the wedding the day of to avoid screeching mics when the MC begins to speak.

I cannot say enough about how Shellie Morrison and her team exceeded all the dreams I ever had for my wedding. The food was amazing, the reception was seamless, and every detail was tended to with the upmost in care. I found Shellie to be pro-active vs. reactive. She anticipated any and all needs that might arise, and covered them.

The food was amazing, and upon stepping onto the property, the feeling that enveloped me was other-worldly. Enchanting is another word that comes to mind. Creative us of lighting and sound seemed to just organically flow, yet I know it was methodically thought out and planned to the tiniest detail.

We had a personal crisis arise within the reception, but Shellie's expert care. heart, and spirit injected in handling it actually caused something that was quite negative to actually become something quite positive.

To say I would recommend Shellie and her team is an understatement. I am beyond thrilled that each detail was executed with such care and concern, thus removing a thousand worries from my care, and causing my day to be the most special and cherished of my entire life.

Absolutely loved the venue! So many beautiful options for our ceremony and I loved the fact that we had an indoor spot for a rain plan. The changing rooms for both the guys and girls was a big plus. The food was really great and met our budget--so much is included at this venue.

Would highly recommend to anyone wanting an all-inclusive ceremony and reception spot.

This venue is now called Magnolia Gardens Event Venue. The Event Group in Fayetteville began managing Magnolia Gardens Inn, December 2013. This means that any reviews written before 12/2013 do not reflect the current management. The property is beautiful, the management is not. I wish I had recorded the initial interview with Shellie Morrison. She was all honey and sweetness until we signed on the dotted line... then, everything changed. We were just thankful we kept emails for proof of what we had been told about various aspects of the venue and the catering. Also, the employee on the property the day of our event, didn't smile one single time. She didn't welcome us to the property, didn't wish my daughter a happy day, nothing. Even our guests noticed her attitude.

Review 09/14 is correct about the catering. If you rent the venue, you must use The Event Group Catering. We found the food to be adequate. Our guests liked it, but there was PLENTY left over. No one went for seconds.

Now to the real issue. If you decide to sign a contract with these people, have them draw a map of exactly where you and your guests are allowed to walk. We rented the Magnolia Hall and the dressing rooms. We knew we were not allowed to walk about the property, that rule had been very explicitly spelled out. However, the week before the event, we had a final meeting with Shellie. We asked if we could take pictures on the grass next to the building and she said YES. She repeated... the GRASSY AREA. Unfortunately, we did not draw a map and her idea of the grassy area and our idea of the grassy area were two different things. On Monday following our event, she called me to go over everything. It was not a pleasant conversation. She informed me that we had stolen from them because we deliberately walked on an area that we had not paid for. When I explained that it was a misunderstanding, she mocked me and called me a liar. She was very sarcastic and nasty.

Beautiful venue. That's about as far as id go with this place. the management is rude and they force you to use their catering company. Catering which is terrible. We tried getting the cheapest deal on food which the best she could give me was 10.90 per person. we got sliders, quesadillas, "seafood dip" w French bread and something else. sounds ok, but gross, the "seafood" was tuna. When you rent the place the contract says you get it from 9-midnight. Yea the kicked us out at 9pm. apparently you also cant bring drinks into the dressing rooms either, us girls were there at 11 for a 4pm wedding. never in my life would I use this place or recommend it to anyone. beware they suck you in with the beauty of the place the screw you after you pay for the place.

I felt like I had looked forever for the perfect venue for my wedding reception. My dad showed me the magnolia gardens inn website and I turned my nose up at it. He ignored me and went down the next day to tour the place and called me to insist I come and see what it had to offer. It is BEAUTIFUL!! It was perfect for a romantic outdoor garden-type reception. We had white tables covered in white linens all over the grounds and the gazebo housed our wedding cake, the dj, and part of our food. We still had plenty of room left to dance!

Dennis runs magnolia gardens and is a pleasure to work with. He was very flexible and gave in to my every hearts desire! He compromised on some things and made the reception planning so easy. I would recommend Magnolia Gardens Inn to anybody searching for a beautiful outdoor wedding and/or reception location.

P.S. There is always something in bloom!
