I visited Magnolia Plantation years ago and going through these photos of this classic Carolina affair, I was reminded of how beautiful it is. Riverland Studios captured every bit of Southern charm, from the Spanish moss to peony bouquets that leave you speechless. With plans for another Charleston trip soon, I’m soaking up this gallery and taking notes for a revisit to see where this love story came to life.

From Riverland Studios… Take a peek at this gorgeous Magnolia Plantation wedding! Jessica & Andrew were married on the Carriage House lawn surrounded by the grounds’ lush gardens and towering oak trees. After exchanging vows, the newlyweds and guests made their way to the Carriage House for drinks and traditional southern fare. The reception site was decorated in the bride’s choice of pale pinks, peaches, and ivories and was flush with plenty of freshly-cut and fragrant blooms – a perfect compliment to the plantation’s rustic southern charm! The rest of the night was filled with lots of dancing, laughter, and love. We’re so thankful to have been a part of their wedding celebration – capturing the big day’s main events and all of the special little moments in between.

When it comes to southern weddings, swaying bald cypress trees, wrap around porches and palmettos make spotting one easy enough. But what I love most about southern soirees is the hospitality and love that is woven into every moment, which Morgan Gallo Events nailed in this stunner. The story unfolds in these breathtaking images from Rach Lea Photography.
From Rach Lea Photography…Danielle and Ryan did not disappoint. They planned the most wonderful, laid back love filled day! Surrounded by 80 of their closest friends and family on the gorgeous Daufuski Island at Haig Point Lighthouse! Being able to photograph this Hilton Head wedding was such a fun change of scenery from downtown savannah weddings. They chose soft southern colors and a laid back feel to their day, Which was perfect for the venue and the view that spoke for itself!

From the moments of anticipation leading up to the ceremony, to the first kiss, to the touching toasts, this southern soiree captured by Light Cannon Films wasn’t the least bit dampened by the stormy weather. The smiles shine bright and a palpable kind of love fills every corner. There’s even more in the gallery from Jennifer Bearden!
From Light Cannon Films…April and Tyler Roberts’ Charleston wedding was filled with laughter and tears. The day began with torrential downpours and rolling thunder. As the girls got ready inside Old Wide Awake Plantation, April was reminding everyone that the day will be beautiful no matter what, and that she would still be married, rain or shine.
As luck would have it, the sun came through just in time for their breathtaking ceremony under the historic oak trees. A small drizzle during their photo hour made for adorable umbrella pictures with the newly married Roberts’, and the weather the rest of the day was incredible. The lighting was in our favor, a filmmaker’s dream. It was a fairytale.
April and Tyler didn’t stop smiling the whole day, even when they were wiping away their tears. Their friends and family gave beautiful speeches, supportive prayers, and celebrated joyfully at the reception. Their wedding was a dream-come-true for everyone who went, including Light Cannon Films.
