About Us

Rachael

Hello I’m Rachael, I am 26 and I’m a mom to my sweet boy Ashton, a bonus mom to our sassy girl Kiera, and a fiancé to my partner in crime Ryan! I’ve always had a passion for planning + parties. I started my own baking company (Farmhouse Cakes) during my freshman year of college! And a few years later I started a rental company (Sage + Co. Rentals) because I also have a love for antiques, furniture, refurbishing, + all things farmhouse! As I continue to explore my businesses, I have truly found my real passion which lies in the wedding industry! I love designing + being creative without any limitations! Together with my two very best friends, we have found a way to do just that! We get to be creative + design weddings and elopements that are out of the box with no limitations and no rules!!! I am also so so excited to meet so many new vendors that also share the love of this industry! We get to use this blog to create a incredible resource for all of you engaged couples to truly find your dream teams of vendors and connect with them right here through the blog! We also hope to inspiration you to think out of the box + make your big day absolutely unique + spectacular!! I’m very passionate about so many things, and so many of them lead me back to weddings, obviously I love cakes/cake design, I love florals, photography, and design! Truly, if I could be every vendor at every wedding— I WOULD!!! A little more about me outside of work— I am a mom, and a pet owner to our VERY curvy black lab (Roxy)!, I love my family, friends, and my job! Sushi is my soul food and If you need me—I’m most likely In the drive thru at Starbucks!! Oh, and I can quote any episode of friends!! (my favorite episode is with Ross + the leather pants!) If you made it this far, thanks so much for taking the time to get to know me, and I can’t wait to show you all what we have in store for this blog!

Kaitlind


Kaitlind here! I just wanted to start out by saying that we truly appreciate the support from all the vendors, venues, and our readers. None of this would be possible without you, and I cannot wait to see our blog flourish. I have been engaged for almost three years now to the sweetest man who I call my Best friend, we have a two year old daughter and currently another one on the way. We couldn’t be any more excited to have our family grow. Other than being a full-time mom I am also a nursing student at PA College of Health Sciences, in my second year of schooling. I recently lost my job at the Law Firm I worked at due to Covid-19 which brought me here. I needed something to fill my now available schedule so when Rachael told me about her idea for the blog and invited me to join, I was head over heels with excitement. Outside of School and Preparing photoshoots for our blog you can find me at the playground spending quality time with my family or having a much needed date night painting with my Fiancé. Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about me and I can’t wait to see what the future holds!

Amanda

Hey girl hey! Thanks for stopping by! I’m Amanda. Let me introduce myself before we dive into why you are really here! I have been happily married to my best friend and life long love, Andrew, for the last 3 1/2 years. We were blessed to welcome our sweet boy, Murphy, just a few days shy of our second wedding anniversary. I can’t forget to mention our fur baby, Boh. My family is my WHY for everything I do. I am a believer of true love and happily ever after.

Like many of you, I planned my own wedding with little help from anyone. Some days I loved it. Other days I was ready to throw in the towel and call the entire wedding off. There was a lot of anxiety and A LOT of tears shed. Sound familiar??? So many times I said to Andrew, “I can’t do this. Let’s just go to the court house or elope.” Andrew always reminded me of the hard work I put into planning our dream wedding and encouraged me every step of the way. After 15 months of planning, it was OUR WEDDING DAY!!! On 9/23/17 at the beautiful Heritage Hills Resort (York, PA), we committed to our love for one another, surrounded by our closest family and friends. Our day ended up being everything we could have imagined and more! Never did I think I would plan another wedding. It was when a dear friend asked me to help plan her wedding, I realized my love for event planning! I reached out to my girl, Rachael, who so graciously helped me make my friend’s wedding day a dream come true (with a romantic book wall included)! Teaming up with my very best friends to further explore the wedding industry and my new found passion, has been a dream come true!

For me, searching for the perfect vendor was the most exhausting part of planning. How do you know who the best vendor is? Are they affordable? How do I save some money? Here at Magnolia Events, we will provide you with the connections to the very BEST vendors in the area! We will strive to make your wedding planning process as painless as possible! We hope you check in weekly for our Vendor of the Month, DIYs to save some money, and the inspiring monthly styled photo shoots we have planned!

So, WELCOME to Magnolia Events! We can’t wait to connect with all you couples, and be your go to resource during your wedding planning!
