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!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Meghan + Chuck

Has Magnolia Plantation ever looked so beautiful?! For Pure Luxe bride and groom Meghan + Chuck,  our team worked long and hard to transform this venue into a vintage, romantic, and rustic inspired venue. The finished design looked amazing and we loved the pink and peach color scheme combined with rustic elements like farm tables and mason jars!

The Bride and Groom chose to do a "First Look" on one of Magnolia Plantation's popular bridges: we just LOVE a first look!

For dinner, guests were in for a real treat. Mosaic was the caterer of choice and as usual, they provided guests with an assortment of delicious southern treats and classic favorites. Among the food stations set up, guests could chose from options such as: shrimp and grits, a taco bar, beef, shrimp, mahi mahi, chicken slides, and crabcakes. What delicious choices!


Who doesn’t love gourmet cupcakes?! Thanks to Sugar Bakeshop, guests enjoyed cupcakes of various flavors including: lemon, chocolate, caramel, yellow cake, and double chocolate. In addition to cupcakes, cinnamon and mixed berry tarts were served. Sugar Bakeshop, one of our Luxe List vendors, created a beautiful arrangement of these sweet treats that tasted just as amazing as they looked!

Following dinner, guests had the option of enjoying s’mores outside by the fire pit. These chocolate deserts are always popular, and are enjoyed even more by a stone fire pit beneath the stars.


Meghan and Chuck’s Carriage House wedding can be described as rustic and natural. The couple used many unique elements and small details to create a personalized and beautifully decorated venue. Items such as burlap table runners placed on the middle of dark, long wood tables accented the rustic theme. On the square tables, beautiful vintage lace linens were used. White and light pink flowers, created by Wild Flowers, decorated the venue and tied together the rustic, natural, and vintage feel of the decor.

Not only did guests leave Meghan and Chuck’s celebration with smiles on their faces and great memories, but they also left with some sweet treats from the dessert table. As wedding favors, each guests was able to fill a custom paper bag with sweets such as M&M’s, swedish fish, jelly bellys, and chocolate pretzels. After a night of dancing and celebrating, these candy treats were the perfect late night snack.


Upon departure, Meghan and Chuck enjoyed a sparkler exit as they climbed into a white, stretch limo. Not only did guests have a blast celebrating this fun couple, but tons of memories were made at this exciting celebration. It was a pleasure working and getting to know this amazing couple!
