Imagine a magical wedding day in the lush gardens of Charleston's Magnolia Plantation. This historic plantation was founded in 1676 and is the oldest public garden in America. History mixes with nature's majesty when celebrating at the Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. For those seeking an outdoor wedding ceremony, the Pavilion is a lovely site. Your wedding will be filled with picturesque moments with the Ashley River flowing nearby, colorful blooms, and Live Oaks. The Plantation has three spaces that may be used for your reception, The Carriage House and Lawn, Conservatory, and Plantation House Veranda. The Carriage House is a sweet space overlooking the River. The house features a rustic interior with wagon wheel chandeliers and exposed beams. Torches on the patio by the fire will have guests enjoying the outdoor scenery well into the evening. The Conservatory and School House Pond provide a unique tropical experience. This private space is romantic with paths that wind amongst orchids, ferns, and other unique flora. The Plantation House Veranda is another elegant location. This large wrap around porch offers 365-degree views of the gardens and can accommodate a large wedding reception. Your wedding day will be brimming with joy when celebrating at the stunning Magnolia Plantation.
