The Veranda at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens
May 5, 2012
The Bahama’s are beautiful and quite often the location for many a couple’s destination wedding. This time however, our couple was from the Bahama’s and a true Southern Plantation Wedding was their dream…..We enjoyed wedding planning with Leah and Justin and wish them many years of happiness!
Choosing a color palette of blush pink, sage green and rustic wood accents – Leah, the Bride, wanted a relaxed, soft and garden style wedding.
She chose the Veranda at Magnolia Plantation as her reception location- with the ceremony held on the White Bridge Lawn ( with one of the most photographed plantation bridges in the world as her backdrop!), and reserved the back lawn behind the main house as well for late evening dancing.
As a unique twist we also reserved the maze garden adjacent to the White Bridge Lawn for a passed hors d’oeuvres, prosecco tower, Lemonade, Sweet Tea, and Cucumber Water Cocktail Hour. Guests enjoyed the cocktail hour here and made their way to the Veranda for dinner as the sun was setting.
The Engaging Events Chalkboard served as a directional sign to guests throughout the evening.
Dinner on the veranda was Family Style, and the decor featured sage green linens, blush pink dupioni runners and napkins. Centerpieces of peonies, garden roses, hydrangae, ranunculous and floating candles were just breathtaking.
Decor: Lighting was composed of Engaging Events pendant lampshades embellished with sage green and pink ribbon; draping of pale pink fabric on the porch columns; and hanging lanterns added to the atmosphere.
After Dinner, guests retired to the dance tent which “blushed” pale pink throughout the evening!
Fun linens from The Total Table had embroidered circles in her pale pink and pale coral scheme. Engaging Events Crystal chandeliers also lit up the tent, while our sofa seating area’s kept the space comfy!
