Allison and Scott
Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation
June 23, 2012
Can’t believe its been almost a year since Allison and Scott’s nuptials- where does the time go!
Allison chose a color palette of champagne/taupe, blue and cream…Hydrangea’s were a must have:)
She loved the rustic structure of the Carriage House and wanted to let the woodwork and wrought iron chandeliers set the tone.
A wedding cake and grooms cake from Ashley bakery stole the show…. featuring the fleur de lis since they are both LSU grads!
The Ceremony took place on the large Lawn of the carriage house…and with 250 plus guests a tent for band and dancing outside adjacent to the patio was in order. The Patio of the carriage house was the perfect place to kick back and enjoy the view and the tunes!
The Umbella tables on the lawn not only made it a fabulous garden style party but shaded the guests from the June sun.
We wish the happy couple a Happy Anniversary and are happy to share this Magnolia Plantation Wedding with you!
This week we had the pleasure of visiting The Mansion at the Woodlands. The Woodlands is on its way to becoming Charleston’s only exclusive, luxury special event venue. The Mansion at the Woodlands is an eighteen bedroom, 1906 Greek revival which sits on eleven acres of parkland grounds beneath towering pines, magnolias and moss draped oaks in historic Summerville.
The concept of the Woodlands as a luxury special event venue is unique to any other venue in the Charleston area. Imagine having your own private estate for your wedding weekend, pretty fabulous right?! With guest rooms uniquely decorated, a pool, spa and a restaurant kitchen who needs to leave!
Now we just need to find a bride to host a wedding weekend at The Woodlands and give her guests an experience they will never forget!
After months of planning, Katie and Bobby’s “Sharing the Romance” Wedding at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens came together on February 9th, 2013.
What better way to show off the lovely details and thank all of the vendors for their generous donations and hardwork than to feature their wedding on the Wedding Row and in the Post and Courier on Valentines Day!
Katie and Bobby found out they won giveaway hosted by Magnolia Plantation and Gardens last August. Katie and Bobby were both deloyed in Afaganistan when they heard about the giveaway with special permission were able to see each other to make their video submission that put them in the running for the $50,000 wedding in Charleston, South Carolina. Once they made it into the top four their families began campainging for them here in the states, while across the world in Afganistan, friends of Katie and Bobby were also voting and the rest is history!
We were so honored to be apart of such a special day and wish all the best to Katie and Bobby. Congratulations to you both! Thank you to all of the vendors who helped make this event possible, Magnolia Plantation, Charleston Wedding Magazine, Snyder, EventWorks, Vanity Salon, Fabulous Frocks, Mosaic Catering, Tiger Lily Florist, Judy Johnston of Engaging Events, Ice Box, Complete Music, Mel of Richard Bell Photography, Classical Charleston, Mist-a-Misquito, Atlantic Tent, Charleston Place Hotel, Scotti Cline Designs, Calligraphy by Request, Davids Tuxedo, Elaine Mincey “Elaines Events”, and A Charleston Wedding.
“Love affiar with Charleston…”
This fall we stumbled upon a gem!
Wilkinson’s Landing is in a secluded location just outside of Edisto Beach. Wilkinson’s Landing is the perfect location for an intimate wedding or a lowcountry rehearsal dinner!
To find Wilkinson’s Landing you drive in down a dirt road surrounded by oak trees and then you are greeted with unobstructed views of the ocean for miles.
Wilkinson’s Landing has two “areas” to host events.
”Red’s Shed” overlooks Frampton Creek and Inlet while offering the perfect location for an oyster roast, lowcountry boil, or pig pickin!
Wilksinson’s Landing comes with a great history.
In 1916 the house was purchased from Salt Landing Plantation, dismantled, placed on a barge, and then floated down the South Edisto, up St. Pierre Creek, and then up to Store Creek before being reassembled to where it sits today!
The house is currently a work in progress, the finished house will act as a bridal suite with a wrap around porch.
The highlight of this venue is the ability to have a private beach wedding.
The property has a private dock, boat, and captiain which can bring you and your guests to a private beach for a very private beach ceremony!
We were lucky enough to get a boat ride out to the small private island where ceremonies are held and it took out breath away.
Another great piece of history at Wilkinson’s Landing is the Tabby Oven. In the early 1800s, Hephzibah Jenkins Townsend, mistress of Townsend Plantation, now known as Botany Bay Plantation, wanted to raise funds to build Edisto’s first Baptist church. When her husband refused to help, she had a huge tabby oven built where slaves could bake bread to be sold in Charleston to raise money to build the church. Mr. Townsend refused to allow the slaves to help with the baking of the bread and she told him she would do it herself. Apparently not wanting his wife to be selling bread on the streets of Charleston, Mr. Townsend relented and the money was raised to build the first Baptist church on Edisto Island. The first Baptist church on Edisto was dedicated in 1818 and stands just off SC Hwy 174 and is also the burial site of Hephzibah Townsend.

Cassique on Kiawah Island
June 2, 2012
If you love color, geometric patterns, and a bit of a modern flair in design you will love Cassidy and Trevors Wedding.
We were thrilled to be the wedding planners for their special weekend. They kicked off the weekend with a welcome dinner at The Sandcastle on Kiawah Island.
The Wedding Ceremony took place on the lawn of the Cassique Clubhouse with a beautiful view of the course and the lagoon. We had a picture perfect day- blue skies, and comfortable temperatures. The ceremony took place in front of an arbor built by the bride’s father. Our floral designer – Judy Johnston finished it off with beautiful colorful blossoms and Charleston Greenery.
Guests and bridal party enjoyed cocktails and hors d’eouvres in the beautiful Garden leading to the reception tent.
The Reception Tent was fashioned with grey linens and turqoise accents including the chevron patterned turquoise fabric as throw pillows, pendant shade covers, and runners. A custom monogram created by Studio R Designs was used to create a custom gobo that spot-lit above the band all evening.
The cake was designed by Elaine Mincey-the inspiration for the design was taken from the Bride’s wedding invitation which contained several geometric patterns.
Thank you to Cassidy and Trevor for including us in their fabulous wedding weekend!
The Cotton Dock at Boone Hall Plantation
May 31, 2012
A splendid mix of Rustic, and Vintage in Design is the best way to describe Arielle and Ret’s Wedding at Boone Hall Plantation. The front lawn of the main house was the location of the nuptials. We truly enjoyed working with this fun and sweet couple during the whole wedding planning process.
The Wrought Iron Gates served as the altar area where Arielle and Ret exchanged vows with the help of 3 pastors….Arielle’s father, and two of their pastors from their church. We decorated the gates with charleston greenery and a beautiful mix of cream and purple blossoms. the aisle was framed with our shepards hooks with moss covered containers containing stock, orchids, ranunculous, and of course a little cotton ….can’t be at Boone Hall Plantation and not have some cotton!
The Cotton Dock at Boone Hall was dressed in purple and cream, we used mahogany wood chairs and farm tables as well as wood floral containers.
Guests were greeted with Mojito’s to begin the festivities.
They danced the nite away under the stars on the Dock of the Cotton Dock to the sounds of the Travis Allison Band.
We have had quite a few features this year on the fabulous blog, The Wedding Row!
Here are some past features in case you missed them!
