About Your Wedding Planner

Hi, I’m Janice Baskin.

I have been married for 32 years to my wonderful man and we have three beautiful daughters.

I have dedicated most of my professional life to education, which has provided many experiences to grow my passion for helping others and keen eye for problem-solving.  After directing my first wedding for one of my former students, I knew wedding planning was my passion in life.  Then planning my daughter’s wedding motivated me to make my dream job of wedding planning a reality. 

My wish is for every bride to enjoy the wedding of her dreams without stress or worry.  My goal is for the bridal couple and all their guests to enjoy the celebration, so I focus on anticipating each desire or need while finding ways to make the time more fun and less stressful.  

I look forward to meeting you and helping you feel celebrated during your perfect wedding.

Our Company

Magnolia & Co was born in rural South Carolina. We understand the power of traditions, the importance of family, the value of a dollar, and the need to celebrate love.

We pride ourselves on helping excited brides, stressed out mothers, and tense fiancees by taking as much or as little off their plates as needed to properly enjoy the day. We work with clients in smaller towns throughout South Carolina who might not otherwise have access to help planning their dream wedding.
