"Crafting Extraordinary Moments: Our Journey of Passion and Personalized Event Planning"

Welcome to Magnolia Event Planning and Design! We are a team of passionate event planners and designers who believe that every celebration deserves to be extraordinary. Our journey began with a shared love for creating beautiful and unforgettable experiences for our clients.

It all started when our founder, Whitney Dexter, discovered her passion for event planning through the years designing and organizing all types of events for friends, family and close associates.  This passion was exacerbated while organizing her own wedding. Inspired by the joy and excitement that comes with bringing people together, she decided to turn her passion into a profession. With a keen eye for detail and a natural talent for organization and design, she embarked on a mission to create truly exceptional events.

Our Story

As our reputation grew, so did our team. Each member of our team brings a unique set of skills and expertise, but we all share a common goal – to exceed our clients' expectations and make their visions come to life. We believe that every event should be a reflection of our clients' personalities and desires, which is why we take the time to listen, understand, and collaborate closely with each client.

From intimate gatherings to grand celebrations, we approach each event with the same level of dedication and enthusiasm. We believe that no detail is too small and that every element contributes to the overall experience. Whether it's selecting the perfect venue, designing stunning floral arrangements, or coordinating entertainment, we handle every aspect of the planning process with meticulous care.

What sets us apart is our commitment to providing a personalized and stress-free planning experience. We believe that our clients should be able to enjoy their special day without worrying about the logistics. Our team's expertise and extensive network of trusted vendors allow us to seamlessly execute every event, ensuring that everything runs smoothly from start to finish.
