About Magnolia Fields
Magnolia Fields was a collaborative effort. In the spring of 2019, the council of Zachary’s historic district were on the lookout for a revitalization of the historic district. Someone recommended Danny and Skye Willis, parents of six, and entrepreneurs, who lived in St. Francisville, Louisiana. They jumped on the vision and took it to another level.
With Danny ,and his corporate background , and Skye, a restauranteur, event coordinator and decorator, an event venue was a natural fit. Danny's sister, Denise Ortego, quickly became excited about the vision and came on board as a partner. Denise has an extensive resume', with her most recent endeavor being general manager of a large assisted living complex. Denise brings
an incredible level of hospitality and care to every detail.
The Fields House was built in 1898. The Willis family used their creativity and extensive knowledge of house restorations to transform this Queen Anne Victorian home. It was important to keep all original historic architectural features while transforming it into a modern day venue.
Their renovation vision was a success. The venue has a dreamy classic feel that lends itself to almost any type of event-corporate, weddings, baby showers, christening parties, retirement parties, birthday parties, family and friend candlelit dinners….anything you have in mind.
Magnolia Fields has finished phase one of construction and has more exciting things on the agenda for the city of Zachary.
