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: Melody + Andrew

Melody and Andrew said their vows at the Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church nearby and then were followed by their friends and family to Magnolia Plantation for the reception. The carriage house was decorated with trees by Plants Alive that added to the already rustic feel of the Carriage House. Ivory and beige linens and white flowers popped against the foliage and dark wooden setting. The night was filled with amazing food and dancing as everyone celebrated the union of this lovely couple.

A passing shower couldn’t damper this beautiful bride’s day as she did her first look on the red bride on the Magnolia Plantation property, joined by her groom and stunning bridesmaids. Melody’s bridesmaids were each dressed in different long, beige dresses that were beaded and sequined, and were the perfect accent to Melody’s white beaded wedding gown. The décor of the reception also has an ivory and beige color scheme. Both the bridal party’s bouquets and arrangements in the Carriage House were full of white peonies, accented by slight hints of pink. Melody’s bouquet was uniquely arranged in dusty miller with pink and white peonies and roses and bright magenta astilbe. Each table was set with multiple small clusters of white flowers and cotton with hints of pink in vintage glasses and assorted mercury glass votives. The ivory draping stood out against the dark beams and potted trees that lined the center of the venue and led to the dance floor.

After a romantic ceremony at Saint Andrew’s Episcopal Church, guests of Melody and Andrew joined them at plantation for cocktail hour, drinks being served by Squeeze. Friends and family mingled in the carriage house and outside by the fire pit, lit by café lighting. The bridal party was soon announced in, followed closely behind by the newlyweds. The couple shared their first dances and cut their cake by Alisa Channell before stations were opened for dinner. Southern inspired stations by Mosaic included: BBQ sliders, skewers, shrimp and grits and mac and cheese, all presented on vintage wooden stands and boxes to match the décor.

Friends and family lit a path with sparklers to the white Rolls Royce awaiting the newlyweds. The bride and groom drove away, waving goodbye, ready to begin the next chapter of their lives together!
