Magnolia Plantation Carriage House Wedding Charleston, SC | Kelly + Andrew

 

I had the absolute honor of joining Kelly and Andrew in Charleston, South Carolina for their Magnolia Plantation Carriage House wedding this past weekend! The Magnolia Plantation is one of the most gorgeous wedding venues I have ever seen! Everything about it appeals to my southern girls heart. There’s a row of oak trees with sweeping limbs draped in Spanish moss making the perfect natural arch. There’s the popular “White Bridge” that’s surrounded by cypress trees, oak trees with Spanish moss everywhere. And it made for the best scenic picture! It was something you would only see in the movies. Everywhere we turned there was another beautiful spot that was perfect for pictures! It’s no wonder why Kelly + Andrew chose this venue for their destination wedding!

I absolutely loved watching Andrew as he wiped the tears that fell from his face as Kelly walked arm in arm with her little brother down the aisle. And as they spoke their vows to one another it was easy to see that these two were truly meant for one another. They were best friends, always thinking of the other before themselves and grateful for the love that they shared. Andrew fell in love with Kelly the moment he saw her and purposely lost a bet just to be sure he got to work with her and later winning a date with her. Kelly found the person that made her believe that fairytales really do exist, loving her for everything she was and wasn’t and always making her feel as if she’s the only person in the room.

Thank you Kelly + Andrew for allowing me to be apart of your fairytale wedding! You had the wedding of your dreams and I had one of my photography dreams come true! It was truly an honor! I wish you many more wonderful years together! Congratulations!!

Enjoy & Remember to leave some love for the Newlyweds!

The perfect little spot for a ceremony on the Ashley River!

Oh Kelly! You’re absolutely STUNNING!!

I absolutely adore this moment between Andrew & his dad after the ceremony!

One of the most gorgeous spots for romantic portraits for sure!
