We arrived in Charleston before Natalie and Matt’s wedding at Magnolia Plantation to have time to walk the grounds of its historic gardens and home. We were instantly charmed by its spanish moss draped trees and rather vocal peacocks. One in particular stood watch at the front of the house as he waited, hoping for some peanuts. Natalie hadn’t originally planned to have as many teal elements in her wedding but as she got closer to the wedding date, her gorgeous wedding shoes took her down a path of one of the most beautifully laid out color palettes I have seen this month.
The morning of the wedding, Natalie and her sweet bridesmaids got ready in the elegant Planter’s Inn, in the heart of downtown Charleston and just a few blocks from where she and Matt had their first look at Waterfront Park. From there everyone headed to Magnolia Plantation for a sweet ceremony with handcrafted vows and an impromptu salute to Matt being a pilot as a plane flew overhead.
Natalie and Matt’s guests were treated to a lovely meal on the Veranda of Magnolia’s historic home before heading to an evening of sweet, heartfelt toasts by friends and family and a first dance to “I was made for loving you” by Tori Kelly and Ed Sheeran. The evening came to a close with a candlelit bubble sendoff and cupcakes for all the guests to take home. Congrats to Mr. and Mrs. Berson as well as sweet Wallace.
