This Magnolia Plantation wedding proved to be the perfect venue for our newest Mr. and Mrs., Lea and JJ Gillis! The sun was shining throughout the ceremony, where the cpuple’s sweet dog made an appearance, and throughout the reception on the Veranda. After the bride spent the morning primping and relaxing with her bridesmaids at the Francis Marion Hotel in downtown Charleston, Lea arrived at Magnolia Plantation and shared some gorgeous pre-wedding photos with CM Photography amongst the gardens. Guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the porch of the plantation house, where they mingled with guests and enjoyed the sounds of Palmetto Stings with a specailty cocktail in hand. As the reception began, everyone enjoyed an incredible meal courtesy of Mosaic Catering! Instead of a tent, Lea and JJ opted for an open air reception with cafe lighting, which looked absolutely stunning as the sun began to set. . It’s all in the details when it comes to making your wedding unique, and one of our favorite details of the night was the glamorous crystal chandelier over the rustic mahogany bar. But, you can’t have a wedding without cake, or rather cupcakes for this fun-loving couple! Lea and JJ danced the night away under the stars and finally made a grand exit complete with sparklers!
Thank you to our fabulous vendors!
