Magnolia Plantation Veranda Wedding: Samantha + Jeromy

Labor Day weekend was the perfect weather for a Magnolia Plantation Veranda Wedding for Samantha + Jeromy. The couple had their first look under swooping oaks at the plantation captured by Rachel Red Photography. The ceremony began at the wedding garden with the beautiful white bridge as the backdrop. Once they tied the knot, guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the front lawn of the house followed by dinner on the porch. Tables were set with garland, gold lanterns and lots of candlelight for a simple, elegant southern look. The bride and groom had a beautiful chandelier hanging over their cozy sweetheart table. Following dinner, drinks, and a lot of dancing, Samantha + Jeromy exited through a tunnel of sparklers as Mr. and Mrs. Hyman!

Magnolia Plantation Carriage House Wedding: Kira + Brent

On a lovely Friday afternoon, Kira + Brent tied the knot at their Magnolia Plantation Carriage House Wedding. After an intimate first look, exquisitely captured by Dana Cubbage, the ceremony was beautifully set up underneath the large oak.  The bridesmaids making their way down the aisle in mismatched burgundy, pink and purple dresses before Kira, looking stunning in her blush tulle gown and bold red lipstick.

 

Inside the carriage house, the 2 white farm tables, making up the head tables, were adorned with gorgeous centerpieces filled with flowers of sandy pinks, burgundy, and touches of white and green. Pomegranates were incorporated into the tabletop to add some texture and accent the deep fall hues. The wagon wheel chandeliers were embellished with complementary florals to the centerpieces.  After a fun night of eating, drinking, and dancing the night away, the newlyweds departed the reception via vintage Rolls Royce as Mr. + Mrs. Greenberg!

Magnolia Plantation Carriage House Wedding: Stacey + David

David + Stacey's Magnolia Plantation Carriage House wedding was the perfect venue to say "I do".  After getting ready, the couple met downtown for their 'first look' outside the Dock Street Theatre, which was beautifully captured by Dana Cubbage. The Theatre was a special place for the bride who grew up preforming there as a little girl. This romantic, river-front location (along with the very compliant, and stunning weather) provided the perfect backdrop to a stunning Jewish ceremony and reception in front of their closest family and friends. David + Stacey were married under a beautiful hand-made Huppah that was accented with a fabulous florals by Wild Flowers, Inc.  Pink hued blooms filled the table tops with accents of navy and gold with specialty gold sequined runners.  A white birdcage with spilling flowers adorned David + Stacey's sweetheart table. Guests enjoyed signature cocktails by Squeeze named "The Sherfman" that was made up of vodka, grapefruit juice, simple syrup & bitters, and a "Southern Belle" made up of firefly vodka and lemonade. Their signature cocktail was named after their fun wedding social media hashtag, #Sherfman (a combination of both of their last names.) Delicious hors d'oeuvres were made and served by Salthouse catering, while guests mingled and enjoyed the DJ's selection of Sinatra-style music. David + Stacey danced the night away, including a very fun Horah (which was our favorite part of the evening!) The newly weds rode off in style in a Rolls Royce as the new Mr. & Mrs. Shiffman.

Magnolia Plantation Elopement: Juliette + Travis

The rain didn't stop this Mr. and Mrs. from having a beautiful and intimate mangnolia plantation elopement ceremony beneath the oak trees! This international couple came all the way from Australia to say their I Do's in Charleston! The couple spent the morning at Zero George getting ready, and then arrived at the plantationrelaxed and excited to get married! The backdrop for the ceremony was a gorgeous floral arbor, complete with white poppies, blush garden roses, and whimsical flairs of greenery. Juliette's bouquet was a perfect compliment to the arbor, with a mix of blush peonies, sweet peas, and trailing silk ribbon. Instead of fighting the rain, Juliette completely accepted the unpredictable Charleston weather, adding adorable rain boots and clear bubble umbrellas. Juliette and Travis had an intimate and personal ceremony with their closest friends having the chance to include classic traditions, and even make some of their own! Instead of having a traditional sand ceremony, the couple chose to use a Polish vodka and an Irish lacquer, reflecting both their heritages, and symbolizing the creation of their new family.  The finishing touch to the day was a vintage couch from 428 Main which created the perfect backdrop for their photos. With champagne in tow, the newlyweds rode in style in their black Mercedes to their dinner reception at McCrady's Restaurant. This adorable elopement ceremony was such a success, and we're so happy for our newest Pure Luxe Couple! When you embrace the rain, you can get amazing photos like these from Aaron + Jillian photography

Magnolia Plantation Carriage House: Lauren + Andrew

There are so many details about this day that we absolutely adored. Lauren and Andrew are the sweetest couple, who are so head over heels in love with each other. The weather was just perfect! The sunshine and soft breeze from the Ashley River at the Magnolia Plantation Carriage House really set the day off to a beautiful start. Lauren and her bridesmaids enjoyed a relaxed brunch together before slipping into their stunning gold sparkly dresses. Lauren's sweetheart dress was accompanied by the most beautiful cathedral veil passed down from her mom. The bridesmaids wore glamorous gold sequined Badgley Mischka dresses that sparkled so beautifully in the sun (you know we LOVE anything that glitters!) Andrew and his groomsmen wore black Vera Wang tuxes with fun matching socks! Lauren and Andrew said "I Do" in a romantic ceremony by the river front. After, guests mingled during cocktail hour outdoors under cafe lighting with beverages and hors d'oeuvres provided by Squeeze on-site and Salthouse Catering. Lauren selected gorgeous sequined linens, a beautiful white for their head table and stunning rose-gold sequined linens for the cocktail tables. Wild Flowers Inc. created magnificent floral arrangements full of hydrangeas, roses and ranunculus in shades of ivories, whites and blush. One of our favorite details was the sparkling gold champagne bottles that doubled as place settings and favors! Emotional toasts were made by Lauren's Father, her Maid of Honor and Andrew's brother. Guests enjoyed great music from Darby Events and lots of fun and dancing! The beautiful wedding cake and other sweet treats were provided by Twenty Six Divine

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Elizabeth + Randy

Elizabeth + Randy, a fun-loving couple from Virginia, chose The Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation for their big day! This Magnolia Plantation wedding was romantic chic with rustic and elegant vibes, plus shades of ivory, nude, blush, and pops of coral, blush pink, and natural greens. Elizabeth, or "Cricket" as her family + friends lovingly call her, started the day off with hair by Elesyium and makeup by Bellelina. Elizabeth was a vision with a Queen Anne's lace flower crown and bouquet by WildFlowers that was brimming with peonies, hydrangeas, garden roses, ranunculus, astilbe, lisianthus, sweet pea, roses, and touches of Queen Anne's lace. Randy wore a white ranunculus boutonniere with a tuft of greenery and tied with an ivory ribbon to accent Elizabeth's bouquet. The nuptials took place on the oyster tabby under a clear tent to shield from the rainy day showers. And who says rain is bad luck on your wedding day? Randall's mouth dropped wide open when he first laid eyes on his elegant, stunning bride. Guests enjoyed drinks and mingling during cocktail hour until the bridal party and groomsmen were introduced into the reception. The bride + groom excitedly made their way in as "Mr. & Mrs. Randall Holmes" and immediately went into their first dance to "Once in a Lifetime" by Landon Austin. Guests were blown away by the reception design that included long and circular tables covered in ivory linens, custom dinner menus in gold font, ample candlelight in rustic gold votives, and tall floral arrangements in clear glass vases with smaller, scattered bud vases and clear glass cubes that all held the wedding florals. Chandeliers were covered with Queen Anne's lace and lush greenery, making for an eye-catching detail that we loved! Pure Luxe Bride softened up the space with ivory drape tiebacks from the ceiling and custom drape for the head table to complete this romantic design. Guests also admired the bride + groom's personal touches, such as the memory tables that Elizabeth + Randall put together with photos of their parents and grandparents, and an extra special piece with a vintage wedding veil from the mother of the bride. Their memory tables were a sentimental way to honor their loved ones who couldn't be there on their big day. Everyone was then treated to a delicious stationed meal by Good Food Catering that consisted of petit grilled lamb chops over cavatappi mac & cheese, grilled asparagus with prosciutto, and more! Post-dinner, wedding cake and s'mores were served while everyone got out on the dance floor to the sounds of DJ Rob Duren! The night ended as everyone danced to "Do You Love Me" by Contours and wished the newlyweds on their merry way! Wishing Elizabeth + Randall joy and happiness, and remembering this beautiful wedding!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Jennifer + Matt

Jennifer + Matt couldn't have asked for a more perfect fall day, as the couple said their "I do's" under the stunning Southern Oaks at the Magnolia Plantation Carriage House. But the party didn't stop there- Jennifer + Matt wanted their guests to experience the entire Plantation, so following their ceremony, guests were escorted to the Conservatory. Drinks were enjoyed during cocktail hour in the crisp, fall air and picturesque scenery to the relaxing sounds of Bob Williams in the background. As cocktail hour began to wind down, guests made their way to the Veranda where the real party began. The oversized tent was filled with crystal chandeliers, mini pumpkins, and pops of lavendar, as each centerpiece was a spilling arrangement of lavender snapdragons, roses, and gorgeous foliage. Jennifer + Matt were announced as husband + wife for the very first time to "Zombie Nation," their college sports chant that had everyone on their feet - Penn State pom-poms in hand- and filled the tent with energy! It's safe to say these two knew how to have a good time and it shows in all of the gorgeous shots from Amelia + Dan. Following an outstanding five-course meal by Cru, guests danced and sang the night away to the Shimmer Band- mixing up the tunes from oldies, to pop! With smiles all around as the night came to an end, Jennifer + Matt were sent off by their guests through an archway of glow sticks - the most perfect exit to their special day.

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Christina + Kirk

We cannot get enough of this absolutely stunning bride and her handsome groom! This vintage chic DIY wedding at Magnolia Plantation was the perfect day for Christina + Kirk! Plenty of details to go around..burlap and lace table runners, specialty lounge from 428 main, and a clear top tent with bistro lighting, these two were dancing under the stars all night long! The couple had vintage post cards as their guest book for guests to sign and grab a ribbon wand as they took a seat for the ceremony. The garden style blooms in soft blush hues could not be any prettier, and the brides bouquet was a true show stopper. Full lush cascading florals with a waterfall effect, oh my! These pictures captured by Richard Bell Photography are breath-taking! With a gorgeous bride and darling eyelet umbrella, you can't go wrong.

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Melania + Nicholas

Melania and Nicholas are London locals who envisioned a southern-styled wedding with green accents and plenty of charm to match their graceful personalities. The Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation was the perfect venue on a September day for this international couple. Melania designed her ceremony programs to fold out into a fan, providing each guest with a cool breeze during the ceremony. The Hunter green and gold accents aligned with mahogany beams and amber lighting created a fun-filled, family-oriented wedding. A celebration of love, family, and unity, Melania + Nicholas and their guests shared in a very special blessing, and Scottish rituals, adding a personal touch to this perfect wedding. Completing the evening with s'mores by the outdoor fire pit gave everyone one last opportunity to cherish the romantic night.
