The Veranda

When we first started dreaming this up, I had an entirely different plan. I wanted a big white barn with a lot of windows, all white and all gorgeous. Then we shot a wedding in the middle of May and it rained all day and it was bitterly cold. Middle of May in Ohio doesn’t always mean blue skies and sunshine! So with that I changed my entire design and sat down with a designer and came up with our “L shape” building. The veranda came later, we initially had this totally closed in with windows but it felt like a smaller replica of the Magnolia Room and we thought maybe we should have something different. So we opened up the walls and made it an open air veranda. The end of the room is enclosed in windows and the archway breezeway gives you a romantic view of the courtyard and the hills on our country road. When I received this drawing from Fiona, I maybe cried a little bit. I absolutely loved how it turned out and I cannot wait to see this come to life.

The purpose of the Veranda was to give our couples a covered area to have their ceremony or cocktail hour in. I also see small parties in this room with flowers hanging from the trusses. We have the most beautiful sunsets out here in Centerburg and I cannot wait for our couples to enjoy them through these archways.

Welcome

Hello & Welcome to Magnolia Hill’s blog! We are so thrilled to have you and we cannot wait to fill these pages with gorgeous weddings and flowers from the farm. Today we made Magnolia Hill Farm official and we still can’t find the words with how excited we are. For over eleven years we have been in the wedding industry and for those eleven years, we’ve heard of the desire for a place like Magnolia Hill. Four years ago we started our journey to making it a reality and I still can’t believe its happening. We visited various farms, barns and other gorgeous venues around the country and found inspiration everywhere. As photographers we knew we wanted something that had enough charm and design to draw you in but it still be simple enough to let the most creative minds make the place their own. We wanted you to feel like you were home yet far enough away from the city to feel like you were having a destination wedding. As our renderings brought life to the our dreams, we’re hoping you see how intentional we were with making Magnolia Hill Farm.

Our plans are to not only host beautiful weddings and events but to grow a unique range of peonies. Because it takes a few years for those flowers to mature we also have made plans to have various cut flowers for local florists and a small orchard of flowering trees. We can’t wait to keep you updated as we begin work on the flower field this year.

You can follow along as we break ground and watch this beautiful farm come to life on instagram, so follow us here!
