Magnolia Carriage House Wedding: Natalie + Tim

The Magnolia Carriage House was the perfect location for Natalie + Tim's  intimate celebration! The couple first met each other here in the Holy City while Natalie was studying at the College of Charleston and Tim was studying abroad here at The Citadel. They invited fifty of their closest friends and family to witness their "I Do's" under one of Magnolia's many oak trees with the sun peaking through for a beautiful ceremony setting.  Each bridesmaid was uniquely dressed in different colored dresses that coordinated with the color palette of the wedding, Natalie was not afraid of color! The tables were set with garland table runners and pops of flowers, fabulous gold chargers and raspberry napkins. The cake design was inspired by the bold pattern on the La Tavola linens in a soft yellow. Guests enjoyed delicious bites by Salthouse catering and danced the night away! We wish Natalie + Tim the best as they start their married life in Germany!

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 Wedding: Anita + Shawn

Anita and Shawn came all the way from New Jersey to have their destination wedding at Magnolia Plantation Carriage House. This couple traveled the world together, got engaged in Africa, and decided to say their "I Do's" in Charleston, SC. Their ceremony was held in front of the oak tree overlooking the Ashley river. PEW's provided vintage church pews for their guests seating with picture frames lining the aisle of the bride + groom as babies growing into their adult life. The bridesmaids looked stylish in their floral printed dressed with astilbe bouquets, we love the print in their outfits! The Carriage House was draped in soft ivory accented with pearls for a feminine touch. Bright blooms filled the table tops in hues of blush, mint, peach, and turquoise. Wooden centerpieces were filled with ranunculus,  hydrangeas, peach lisianthus, coral ranunculus and mint succulents. Mosaic Catering provided delicious eats and fun specialty cocktails for cocktail hour and the reception! The Little White Box, a 1974 Vintage Volkswagen bus, is a traveling photobooth that arrived later in the night for guests to enjoy! See all of the amazing photos captured by Monika Gauthier Photography!

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: Colleen + Freddy

Colleen + Freddy's rustic Magnolia Plantation Wedding at the Carriage House was full of DIY details and fun favors that perfectly complimented the couple's style! Their big day began with hair & makeup by Paper Dolls for the girls and a relaxing afternoon for the guys pre-nuptials. Everyone then gathered under the oaks at Magnolia Plantation for the "I do's".  We loved Freddy's reaction when he saw his beautiful bride for the very first time! Post-ceremony, it was time for cocktail hour! Guests enjoyed appetizers by Crazy Dutchman Catering including pimento cheese spread on garlic crostinis, mini crab cakes with creole remoudlade, and more, plus the newlywed's signature cocktail, the Palmetto Mule! As guests began to make their way inside for the start of the reception, Mr. + Mrs. Paternostro were announced in to "Home" by Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros. Guests were swooning over the wedding design: moss-covered chandeliers, soft candlelight, accents of navy and greens, touches of burlap, lush white hydrangeas, and gourmet favors! Charleston street names were printed on signs and placed into vintage wine bottles to mark each table for the guests to find with their custom mason jar glasses. Colleen + Freddy, along with the bridal party and groomsmen, sat at wooden handmade farm tables, a wedding gift for the new Mr. + Mrs.! Their head tables were adorned with burlap table runners, monogrammed napkins, and elegant china. After a buffet-style dinner of sautéed shrimp & grits, cider pulled pork BBQ sliders, and a mashed potato bar, it was time to dance! DJ Wade kept everyone on the dance floor all night long, with a special appearance by the University of South Carolina's mascot, Cocky! Colleen + Freddy, recent USC grads, were thrilled with this sweet surprise by Colleen's mother. To end this perfect night, the newlyweds were sent out through a picturesque sparkler archway by their guests, wishing them love and happiness! Thanks so much to Richard Bell Photography for capturing this amazing celebration!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Kimberly + Clint

Kimberly + Clint's Magnolia Plantation Wedding was a beautiful, intimate gathering for the happy couple! The bridal party started hair and makeup bright and early with Paper Dolls in the Carriage Suite at Magnolia Plantation, while the groom and his groomsmen got ready together offsite. With rain on the horizon and a desire for pictures on Magnolia's lush grounds, the couple opted for a first look (although not originally planned) and the pictures turned out absolutely gorgeous! We were overjoyed that Kimberly + Clint got the shots they wanted, and it just goes to show that with a little trust, everything will turn out just fine, rain or shine! Following the couple's impromptu first look, the ceremony took place under the oaks with a view of the water as Kimberly + Clint said their vows to each other. Kimberly carried a hand-tied bouquet by Wild Flowers filled with white and green hydrangeas, garden roses, white ranunculus, blush pink lisianthus, and more, plus fabulous pops of bright pink ranunculus. Following the ceremony, Mosaic Catering kicked off cocktail hour with gourmet mimosas in pineapple, orange, and cranberry flavors and bloody marys, complete with celery, pickled vegetables, cracked pepper, bacon swizzles, and a variety of hot sauces. Passed hors d'oeuvres were also served, including chicken dipped waffle bites, yogurt parfaits, and apricot chicken salad. Next, the newlyweds were announced into the reception as "Mr. and Mrs. Clinton Thomas" and they shared their first dance to "At Last" by Etta James. The bride + groom then welcomed their guests to the reception and invited them to enjoy brunch! Brunch stations were set around the room, including His + Hers omelettes, Charleston grits, and an assortment of biscuits. This spread by Mosaic was simply delicious! Tables were adorned with lush centerpieces in rustic wooden boxes and locally made and wrapped pralines as a sweet treat for guests! Rustic-chic lounge was set in the middle of the space in front of Kimberly + Clint's sweetheart table, complete with basket weave chairs for the sweet couple. Ivory drape by Pure Luxe Bride softened the space and tied the design together perfectly. Guests had a wonderful time on the dance-floor dancing to tunes by DJ Rob Duren. At the end of this lovely day, the new Mr. + Mrs. were happily sent on their way with a bubble send off! Thanks so much to Aaron + Jillian for capturing all this pretty!

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: 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.

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Tori + Ryan

An elegant simplicity was emitted all around Magnolia Plantation wedding of Tori+Ryan. The lingering rain in the morning gave the day a nice cool breeze making the July heat bearable. You could see the love these two shared by the way they looked at one another. Happy tears came from the grooms eyes as he saw his beautiful bride for the first time walking down the aisle. This wedding was filled with details galore! Personalized matches, water bottles, koozies, and sunglasses made the perfect touch.  The bridesmaids were dressed in a mixed array of lovely navy dresses accompanied with DIY bouquets made by one of the bridesmaids. The bridal party entered into the reception space with their sunglasses on ready to party. Shrimp and grits, Pork Loin, and a Mac and Cheese bar were a huge hit with the guests! This crowd couldn't wait to get out on the dance floor, and Charleston Grove Factory helped them shake it all night long!
