Magnolia Plantation Veranda Wedding
in Charleston, South CarolinaDustin & Ashley

 

Magnolia Plantation Veranda Wedding Ceremony by Charleston Wedding Photography

I can’t get enough of this Magnolia Plantation & Gardens Wedding at The Plantation House Veranda and Long White Bridge Lawn wedding ceremony locations in Charleston, SC.  This gorgeous couple and the magical southern scenery of Magnolia Plantation was the perfect combination for an unforgettable wedding day.  Magnolia is listed as the most popular wedding venues in Charleston.  It honestly deserves such title.  The wedding venue is filled with giant oak trees, Spanish moss, wooden bridges, an assortment of wildlife, bamboo forest, multiple wedding ceremony locations, etc.

For Dustin & Ashley’s wedding, those warm summer showers came and nourished the land most of the afternoon. But just in time for the Bride & Groom first look, the heavens opened and a fairytale style sunlight came gleaming through the oak trees and turned a questionable weather situation into the best wedding of the year. I was so happy that Dustin & Ashley gave me plenty of time to photograph them in this beautiful location. Have a look at this magical Charleston wedding for yourself.

The End

Andrew & LaurenSouth Carolina Aquarium & Summerall Chapel WeddingCharleston, SC

This wedding was truly amazing.  I’m excited to share it with you.  Lauren & Andrew married in the Summerall Chapel at the Citadel, Charleston, SC.  But the day’s festivities started downtown Charleston on King Street as the bride and her sister got their hair and makeup down at Cos Bar.  Follow along with me…

Ariel Shot of Downtown Charleston

Here is great ariel type shot over Charleston from the Francis Marion hotel.  I really like the warm tone from the winter sunlight.  It sets the stage for the wedding.

‘Tis the season…for Love.

Lauren looks so happy on her wedding day.  I also photographed her and Andrew’s engagement session, they are just super fun and goofy with one another.  It’s great.

Groom gets ready for wedding in Charleston

Andrew has previously served our country in the military and now in law enforcement for the City of Charleston.  The flag is a wonderful reflection of that as Andrew is silhouetted in the foreground.  Thanks to Alex for this cool photograph.

Lauren decided to go with a uniquely designed feathery and flowing wedding dress (sorry if I’m describing it wrong, I’m a guy HA).  😀

Bride's Shoes

I chose to photograph her wedding shoes on the floor of the hotel room.  I was drawn to the blue and gold color of this vintage pattern.  I felt like it accented the wedding colors very well.  Plus it seemed to match the elegance of her shoes.

This has got to be the cleanest ‘getting ready’ room I’ve ever seen.  Here’s a tip:  Have your bridesmaids do their best to keep the rooms clean.  It makes the photos turn out so much better.

Hahaha.  I’m not going to even mention those curlers (whoops, I guess I did anyways!).  This Charleston wedding photo of the bride getting into her dress is hilarious!!!

I’m very happy with the way this wedding shoe shot came out.  Again, that pattern matches so well.  There is also very good window light coming in.  Love it!

The time is getting closer…the wedding is coming quickly.  From here we head to the Summerall Chapel at the Citadel for their first look reveal.

I love this moment between the two of them.  She really likes him in his cap and uniform.

They’re so sweet to each other.  I chose black and white for this image to convey the intimacy of the moment they are sharing together during their first look.

I can’t tell you how much I like this shot of them holding hands and walking together.  Once again, I think black and white makes this image shine.

Lauren is such a sweet and laid back bride.  I’m really excited for them to get married in a few minutes.

This is an awesome shot of the groomsmen in front of the Citadel barracks.  I think the tough guy, serious look works really well for this one.

Bride’s sister’s little kiddos were the cutest things.

Family Portraits at Summerall Chapel Wedding

I’m throwing in this family formal shot to show you how awesome this particular location and time was.  Just remember not every family formal has to be at the foot of the altar.  We can go outside for some more warm and light hearted shots instead.

Family Portraits at Summerall Chapel Wedding

Here is one more family shot of the bride’s sister and her family.  They’re going to LOVE this shot.  It’s not too often that families with little ones get shots together.  I’m very happy to take these kinds of photos at the wedding.  Just grab me and we’ll do it!

I wish I could remember what was said here but something must have been SOOOO FUNNY.  Just look at Lauren in the right photo above.  The best part is the officiant’s face. HAHA.

That ceremony was wonderful.  From here the wedding party headed to the South Carolina Aquarium for the wedding reception.

Random fact about the above image: Blue and orange are complementary colors.  And this is a jellyfish. HA, you knew that one though, and maybe the first one too.

South Carolina Aquarium Charleston, SC

I believe I heard that this big guy is over 100 years old.  That’s amazing.

South Carolina Aquarium Charleston, SC South Carolina Aquarium Charleston, SC

Guests were allowed to explore the aquarium during the cocktail hour.  That made the reception much more enjoyable, I think.

South Carolina Aquarium Charleston, SC South Carolina Aquarium Wedding in Charleston, SC

I really liked the South Carolina Aquarium as a wedding venue because there were so many different areas and rooms for the guests to explore.  Everything wasn’t crammed into one single room.  It was kind of an adventure.

South Carolina Aquarium Wedding in Charleston, SC South Carolina Aquarium Wedding in Charleston, SC South Carolina Aquarium Wedding in Charleston, SC

When we arrived at the Aquarium I made sure to take more wedding portraits of them two.  I like how different the Aquarium makes the photos look.

I can’t get over how happy these two are.

South Carolina Aquarium Wedding in Charleston, SC

This was a total different style wedding for me.  I normally shoot outdoor ceremonies at Charleston plantations and such.  I’m really happy with the aesthetics of this wedding.  You can’t go wrong with a setting like this one.

This tank is over two stories tall!  But their love for each other is probably even taller (if that even makes since HA).

Bride and Groom enter the wedding reception from the escalator.  That’s pretty grand.

HA.  Here her Father was making jokes about Andrew’s shooting skills.  Obviously it was pretty funny for both of them!  I’m glad he had a sense of humor.

This has got to be the funniest cake cutting moment I’ve seen.  Look at that helmet and that commando knife!

TJ and Megan’s Wedding at Alhambra HallCharleston, SC

I can’t say enough about this super fun and romantically cute wedding in Charleston, SC, at Alhambra Hall.  I really like how Megan choose to accent her wedding with these colorful balloons as you’ll below.  What a unique idea for her to hide behind them so that TJ wouldn’t see her walking up for their first look.  Their outdoor ceremony was a heart moving occasion beneath the wild oaks and Spanish moss.  The warm southern sunlight revealed itself in the knit of time for their bridal portraits following the ceremony.  The wedding reception inside Alhambra Hall brought yummy food, lots of laughter, and plenty of crazy dancing all night long.  The wedding day was executed perfectly thanks to the wonderful Katherine Miller.  Check out the photos.  There are a lot of photos, sorry not sorry!  It was hard to choose. 😀
