*OFFERING IN-PERSON AND VIDEO TOURS!
Whether you are from the Lowcountry or planning a destination wedding in Charleston, we hope that your guests will feel at home when you invite them to Magnolia Plantation to celebrate with you. In the springtime you will find our gardens filled with colorful azaleas and wisteria. During the warmer months of summer, vibrant crepe myrtle, hydrangeas, and our iconic magnolias fill the property. Fall brings an encore season of azaleas, morning glory, and the beginning of camellias. Throughout the winter months, our historic gardens showcase America's largest collection of camellias.
For elopements, which is considered a small ceremony for just the wedding couple, we charge a flat fee of $500. This simply covers admission for the two of you, your photographer, officiant and gives you access to the entire plantation for you to take pictures afterwards. An officiant, photographer, etc. would be booked separately. Please note that you will not be renting a venue on property, so you have the capability to have your ceremony wherever you would like. The options are endless whether it be underneath the swooping oaks or nestled in the gardens!
Visitors from around the world have come to view the gardens at Magnolia Plantation since we opened to the public in the 1870's.

Azaleas, camellias, lilies and seasonal annuals intertwine to embrace ancient oaks and frame picturesque bridges and spacious lawns. This breathtaking backdrop is the perfect setting to record all of life's special moments from engagement photos and wedding pictures to bridal and family portraits. Imagine your memories surrounded by the splendor that is America's last Romantic Garden.All photography sessions must be prescheduled through the events office and start at $150 for use of the gardens and grounds.
