The Carriage House at Magnolia Plantation

Regina and Rachid

The Carriage House at Magnolia Plantion

October 29, 2012

This happy couple made it official at Magnolia Plantation last fall. Regina a Sommelier, and Rachid a photographer and son of a restauranteur, made the meal at their reception one of their top priorities.

The couple shown here on Magnolia Plantations beautiful red bridge- wanted to incorporate their families cultures into the ceremony and reception in as many ways as possible.

A prayer Rug – shown below was the location where the couple would exchange vows, on church pews overlooking the Ashley River.


Orchids where the flower of choice- and Regina wanted a clean line style that would accentuate the rustic nature of the venue.

Cupcakes – a must have – were the dessert of the evening  shown here on our glass tower.


The autumn colors of gold, cabernet and mango looked so rich in the venue. The couple chose places they visited together as their table names.

A menu consisting of plated and family style courses was enjoyed by all- along with espresso and cappuccino later that evening.

A beautiful fall fete!




Sharing the Romance in Charleston SC

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.

Sharing the Romance

Last week was such a busy week! We finially met with Katie and Bobby, winners of the Sharing the Romance wedding giveaway.  The first stop of the day was a press conference at Magnolia Plantation.  Here is a link to the write up in the Post and Courier.

After the press conference we walked through the ceremony and reception space and began brainstorming ideas!  There will be lots of red, gold and camelia’s!  The next two days were filled meeting with all of the wonderful vendors we will be working with, we had a very long to do list for Katie and Bobby!  In their two day visit to Charleston, they met with Sarah Black, owner of Fabulous Frocks to find a dress, Ice Box to beging looking at bar options, ginger apple mojito specialty drink? YUM!

Katie and Bobby also had their engagement session with Mel Bell, from Richard Bell Photography, discussed ceremony flowers with Gayla from Tiger Lily Florist, and met with Elaine Mincey about their cakes (there will be a trio of cakes!). Finially, we met with Micheal from Mosiac Catering to create a lowcountry menu of shrimp & grits and BBQ before ending the two days of meeting with Scottie Cline about inviations.  It was a busy two days and there is still a lot to do!   We will keep everyone posted!

Lisa, Mother of the Bride

You are the crème de la crème of wedding planners. If anything went wrong at the wedding or reception I don’t even know what it was. For me, and everyone I’ve spoken to, it was the perfect evening. The only thing I can’t give you credit for was that it didn’t rain! Thank you for all the hard work you put into making this so special for Chloe and Preston. She had a vision of her wedding day and you were able to make it happen. The caterer, the band, the venue, the flowers, the cake and the car – it was all just right. Thank you so much for your professionalism and hands-on commitment to our event. Your personal attention to every detail was very reassuring and made my job easy – just show up and have fun!
