My fiance' and I traveled from Indiana to elope at The Magnolia House. We could not have chosen a more perfect home to begin our new life. From the beauty of it's namesake trees to classic architecture, the elegant decor, scented candles and classic jazz music being played, the Magnolia House is a delight for all the senses. The passion Miss Joyce and Langford have for their guests is unparalleled. Miss Joyce is a Renaissance woman, indeed, having a talent for anything she sets her mind to. Wonderful host, amazing cook, wise counselor for wedding plans and top rate concierge to all the nearby places to visit. However, In the midst of all our planning, we forgot to get a wedding cake.
On the day of or wedding, there was Miss Joyce in the dining area, frosting and DECORATING a homemade (not store-bought) cake! We we speechless. After our wedding came recommendations for photos at nearby historical Fort Monroe, with Miss Joyce guiding us to the best spots to take pictures.
Miss Joyce does more than just share her home with you, she makes you family. We truly felt blessed with all the attention and truly hated leaving. This was our first B&B experience and I must say that the bar has been set very high by Miss Joyce, Vera, Langford and the Magnolia House.
