Magnolia Plantation

FILED IN: Weddings

As a Charleston wedding photographer, I love to get to know each and every couple of mine.  While this builds friendships, it also allows me to learn about each unique wedding day, to capture it fully for the couple. So when I was talking with Nikki, I learned that they wanted to have a very ethereal wedding, based on fairy tales. What better venue to host this occasion than Magnolia Plantation?  It has extensive, gorgeous gardens and oak trees. Duvall Catering also did a fantastic job catering, planning, and doing the florals for the wedding. Fairy tale quotes, delicate lights at each centerpiece, and vintage decor made this day a magical one! Nikki also lost her shoe while walking down the aisle with Sam, a truly Cinderella moment!

Take a peek at some of the highlights at Magnolia Plantation below –
