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 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 Wedding: Lea + JJ

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!

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: 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!

Magnolia Plantation Wedding: Carissa + Tom

The rainy spring weather didn't stop Carissa and Tom's day from being anything but perfect. This sweet couple hailed from Canada and chose Charleston for a small affair with their closest friends and family. We loved designing this intimate garden style wedding at the Magnolia Plantation Veranda. The lush florals by Branch Design Studio made a dreary day pop! The couple did their first look at Zero George Street which made for the prefect setting with sunlight shining through the window panes. The color palette for the decor was a mixture of pastels-  blush, peach, robin egg blue and spring greens with a touch of gold. The table tops were set with floral vignettes of peonies, garden roses, sweet peas, and light blue delphinium. The head table had a beautiful floral table runner, the vintage charger and gold rimmed glassware were the perfect touch. The Magnolia Veranda provided the perfect backdrop with its large mossy oak trees creating an unspoken breathtaking charm.

History Lesson at Magnolia Plantation

Magnolia Plantation is perhaps one of the most exquisite plantations in all of South Carolina. Dating back to 1679, Thomas and Ann Drayton established Magnolia Plantation, and we're the first of many owners spanning throughout 300 years. Most notably, Magnolia Plantation transferred ownership following the death of Thomas Drayton, in 1825. His brother, John Grimke Drayton, who was 22 at the time, took over Magnolia Plantation and truly brought it to it's full potential. With the desire to please his loving wife, Julia, John established an amazing array of gardens throughout Magnolia Plantation, which continue to blossom and expand to this day. Focusing on the soft and natural beauty of the South, John truly created a sought-after environment, perfectly intimate and remote!

Middleton Place Wedding: Andrea + Chris

Picture horse drawn carriage rides, oak trees dripping in moss, and spring flowers in full bloom at Charleston's beautiful Middleton Place. This was the setting for Andrea + Chris' romantic, April wedding. Andrea wore a gorgeous lace, open-back gown from Gown Boutique; Chris a handsome, dark gray suit. Andrea and her stunning bridesmaids rode the horse drawn carriage to the ceremony site where Chris awaited his bride's walk down the aisle. Andrea and her father glided down the aisle at the Butterfly Lake's Charleston Virtuosi's playing in the background.

Tessa + Joe at Magnolia Plantation Carriage House

Tessa + Joe's military wedding at Magnolia Plantation was complete with pops of color, lanterns, coral charm peonies, and their furry friends! The ceremony was held outside on the dock overlooking the Ashley River, and the reception took place in the Carriage House. During the ceremony, Tessa + Joe introduced their Love Lock to symbolize their unbreakable love. The couple and parents had their own lock which they locked to a frame and threw the keys into the water. How sweet!

In the Carriage House, white drapes aligned the doorways, custom patterned table runners, and lanterns surrounded by colorful blooms. After a delicious plated dinner and speeches, it was time to cut the ombre ruffled cake. After the reception, guests lined the walkway to send Tessa + Joe off with a sparkler departure!
