Not only is Charleston home to countless Lowcountry weddings ever year, but it also takes the cake for elopements and beautiful vow renewals. Ashley + Anthony recently renewed their wedding vows in an intimate ceremony at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens with a cute, vintage picnic under the dreamy Oak trees. The couple and their sweet daughter enjoyed a beautiful styled picnic and cake from D’lish as the overlooked the charming grounds, and then took a romantic stroll about the plantation with Reese Moore! A few chickens even joined in the celebration!
Emily + Andrew tied the knot at, hands down, one of our favorite Lowcountry wedding venues…the gorgeous Magnolia Plantation and Gardens! Emily stunned in an off-the-shoulder, lace gown that she paired with a perfect pair of loafers, while her bridesmaid dazzled in a peach gown. Lucky for us, the talented Carmen Ash Photography was there to capture the moment as the couple said ‘I do’ in a dreamy, outdoor ceremony under the oaks. Don’t you just love those umbrellas? With the assistance of the crew at Intrigue Design & Events, the sweet couple treated their guests to quite the reception including tasty, Lowcountry cuisine from Good Food Catering (let me get some of those ham biscuits!), a heavenly dessert station, cigar bar and late night snacks! Thanks to Absolutely Charleston, Emily + Andrew exited in a sea of sparklers as they departed under the Charleston stars.

The couple, who has recently relocated to the area, decided on an intimate October fete on the grounds of Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. As one of Charleston’s favorite venues, The Carriage House offered photographer Christina Watkins stunning views of the Ashley River, ancient Live Oaks and a wealth of Spanish moss. Basically, it’s Lowcountry Heaven.
