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.

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.

From Caroline Ro…Ashley and Jason’s wedding was one for the books! When I met them in Savannah at a private plantation months earlier in which they included their two dogs and bunny (a cat hs been added since), I knew their wedding would be a hit!
My favorite part about the day was how involved both sides of the family were. I met both Ashley and Jason’s mom at their engagement session and loved how you could tell they had already hit it off as friends.
Come the wedding, the two were just as involved and excited. Jason’s mom monogrammed everything you see and worked relentless to make sure it all looked perfect. Ashley’s mom had a huge hand over so many of the design elements, making sure everything came together perfectly as she was in Charleston while Ashley and Jason were in Savannah.
And when it came time for me to arrive on the wedding day, Ashley was beyond ready! She had all her details perfectly laid out and had sent items over to Jason’s for the same. And although the two and their families cared about details, I could tell they also cared about straight up having fun! Their first dance surprised everyone as a perfectly executed ball room dance (smooth, not stiff and practiced) and then when they both got on stage toward the end of the night to sing the night away. How can you ask for a better couple?
