1 The White Magnolia

Kentwood, LA


First up is one of my personal favorite venues which is "The White Magnolia" in the rolling hills of Kentwood, LA. About 30 minutes from the town of Hammond, Louisiana, and McComb, MS, The White Magnolia is built on a beautiful, 110-acre horse and cattle farm. The venue boasts a light, airy, stained wood interior, pale exterior colors, and a perfectly manicured outdoor setting. An indoor or outdoor open-air chapel are an option at this venue. It also has two getting-ready rooms so that you have room for yourself and your entire bridal party. This venue is just stunning and definitely an experience that you and your guests will never forget.

2 The Greenery


Near "The White Magnolia" is the Greenery which is part of Liuzza Farms that includes not only "The Greenery" venue but also its sister venue, "The Berry Barn." Both are across the street from each other and are nestled on a 500-acre produce farm in the city of Amite, LA. With a perfect light and airy feel, this venue is perfect for the bride looking for a natural/floral vibe.
