Today’s gorgeous celebration comes to us from the picturesque Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in South Carolina where Baylee and Bobby celebrated their special day in October 2016. Even Mother Nature couldn’t stop this couple, who wed just a few days after a hurricane. It really is a setting to die for – you’ll soon spot the incredible ancient trees, which are captured in the most glorious light by the immensely talented One Life Photography and the first look shots on the bridge are truly some of the best I’ve seen.
Now I always champion a dessert table, but Baylee and Bobby have gone one better with the ultimate dessert option in my opinion: a S’mores station with all the ingredients you could possibly need to indulge in fire-roasted, marshmallowy gorgeousness – it’s even displayed so temptingly next to that fabulous fire pit. What a treat!
I couldn’t share this wedding with you and not comment on how stunning Baylee is and how super the groomsmen all look in their light suits and bow ties; there really is something about this colour combination that oozes romance and elegance. I love that the formality and glamour of Baylee’s gown is off-set against the lovely blues of the bridesmaids’ dresses and the cowboy boots they are all rocking – the perfect injection of fun. I also love how there are so many personalised touches – from the girls’ getting ready robes to the napkins embossed with the couple’s initials!
FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHER | Magnolia Plantation is such a beautiful place to get married it always feels like you are in a fairytale. It is filled with southern charm, ancient live oaks, marshes and fabulous gardens. The place one can only wish for to be married. Baylee and Bobby’s wedding was on October 12th of 2016. Some of you might remember we had a hurricane Matthew go through the area a few days before that. Luckily Magnolia Plantation has such an excellent crew, so the whole place was back to normal in no time. Few downed trees here and there, but nothing major. The weather on that day was gorgeous; warm temperatures and beautiful blue sky. Baylee and Bobby decided to do a first look, which gave us a chance to go through all of the best places of the plantation, and we got some amazing photos done. The day went very smoothly with no hiccups. Everything ran on time; a special thanks for that to the girls from Sparkles, Event Decor and Design, they are always such a blast to work with. The ceremony was held on a loan right by the carriage house, overlooking Ashley River. A reception followed shortly after at the carriage house itself. The evening ended with a sparkler exit to send a couple to an awesome honeymoon at the Antigua island.
