This wedding is especially touching, because the couple waited over a decade to tie the knot. Through the birth of their son, moving to a new state and multiple jobs, they had already proven they can stay together through the good times and the bad. Choosing to have a big wedding after so many years together was quite the romantic gesture! Scroll through for more charming details and DIY rustic touches from this beautiful plantation wedding in Charleston.
The Magnolia Plantation in Charleston, South Carolina set the scene for this couple’s big day. Dreamy Spanish moss-covered trees and lovely gardens gave this wedding some romantic Southern charm.
A Fitting Invite
A sprawling tree on the wedding invitation lended well to the rustic theme.
The bride’s son and husband-to-be both covered their eyes for a very sweet first look.
The bride dazzled in a strapless lace wedding gown, and the bridesmaids looked lovely in emerald bridesmaid dresses.
The “I Dos”
The couple was all smiles after saying their “I dos!”
Guests snacked on bacon wrapped shrimp, cold cuts, cheese, and bread during cocktail hour.
Guests found their way to their seats with escort cards in wood place card holders.
Simple, elegant touches, like lanterns, lush white florals and white fabric ceiling draping, elevated the wooden reception table. A cute cake topper and moss were wonderful touches to the wedding cake!
Wishing Stone Guestbook
Instead of a traditional guestbook, guests were asked to write well wishes on stones.
