Maryland residents Suzanne and Joel fell in love with Magnolia Plantation over the internet. After seeing photos online, they knew it was the PERFECT spot for them to elope – even though they’d never even been to Charleston before, let alone Magnolia Plantation! But hey – I can’t blame them. Magnolia Plantation is absolutely beautiful and it WAS the perfect spot for their intimate and romantic elopement.
Suzanne + Joel’s wedding day started with a beautiful First Look and some portraits, followed by their amazing ceremony under the oaks. It was pure perfection. After their ceremony, we spent some more time exploring the plantation together – Suzanne + Joel even climbed into a tree that was perched above the Ashley River. Talk about EPIC!!! The best part of the day? Mother Nature timed things PERFECTLY for once. Although rain threatened the area, the rainy skies cleared mid-morning and remained dry up until the very last shot… literally! As we made our way back to the main house after we finished up shooting, it started to drizzle for the first time all afternoon. So thank you, Mother Nature, for keeping things dry for Suzanne + Joel’s beautiful wedding day!
Congratulations Suzanne + Joel! I loved being a part of your special day. Without further ado, here are some of my favorites from this fabulous Magnolia Plantation elopement…
