Surprise Engagement

It is not everyday we get to host a surprise engagement, but when we do, we too, fall in love. This is a super sweet couple and their family and friends even joined in the surprise at the end. The photos are by Whitney Bower, and she captured the day beautifully. It all started with a simple romantic carriage ride around the lake....but suddenly the carriage stops...at a table for two, and the question is popped. Of course she said yes, and on the return trip, family and friends await to surprise. Warm cocoa and chocolate on the haywagon...warm up to the bonfire. Love is in the air!

Ready for a romantic sundown carriage ride....


the carriage stops ....



Lots and lots of hugs...


Hot Cocoa Bar on the Hay wagon


Just can't believe this!


Grandad offers congratulations

The Pros of Magnolia Hill




The Pro’s Know

            There are a few times in your life when you should make the choice to let the pro’s have it, and a wedding is certainly one of them. A friend at church last week could not wait to tell me about the wedding she attended…or helped. It was another horror story of as she arrived as a guest, she went to check on the bride and found the brides’ mother frantically in the church’s kitchen trying to pull together complicated appetizer trays …all last minute. Linens needed to be placed on the reception tables and the mother was about in tears for she really wanted to be in the brides room helping her daughter get dressed. Uncle Fred called and he was going to be late, even though he was asked to take pictures at the wedding. All of the stress on the bride and her mother knowing the day was not going smoothly could have been avoided with a bit of utilizing a professional…planner, caterer, and photographer.  

Catering Creations, exclusive caterer for Magnolia Hill

Mother of the bride should never serve as caterer. Obviously professionals have more experience in catering because that’s what they do — all day, every day. They will help you not only with food and drink but include important details such as plates, napkins, tablescapes and décor. With a pro, you won’t worry about running out of food…you’ll always have enough food. A professional catering company has the experience in providing the right amount of food and drinks to feed all your guests. Catering companies don’t just bring food; they also make sure that plates are full and discarded dishes aren’t left around to clutter your gathering. This lets you focus your attention on your guests. Enjoy mingling while the professionals serve the food and drinks.

The professional catering company will also spare you the clean up process during and after your gathering. They put the menu together before the party starts, and they take everything apart afterwards so that you don’t have to worry about washing dishes or clearing the tables. Hiring a professional caterer can save time, money, stress and a mother’s heart. This is the day the pros know!
