Each of our wedding venues is as unique as each of our couples. Our indoor green house at the Conservatory will invite you to enjoy natural, simple pleasures. The Carriage House surrounded by ancient live oaks, overflows with rustic, old Southern charm on the banks of the Ashley River. The stately and romantic Plantation House Veranda will enchant your guests with panoramic views of the abundant gardens in the heart of the plantation. We invite you to come experience the property and be swept away in the romance and beauty of our historical gardens.
RUSTIC SOUTHERN CHARM
Dating back to 1840, the Carriage House is completely surrounded by ancient Live Oaks with beautifully draped Spanish moss while overlooking the Ashley River. Today, the updated building brilliantly dances the fine line between timeless charm and modern amenities. At night, burning torches line the bank of the river while the patio fireplace sets a festive mood. Inside, the wagon wheel chandeliers hanging from exposed beams set the ambiance with a gentle glow. The Carriage House can accommodate 150 guests seated with dancing and up to 200 with dancing placed on the outdoor patio. Tents on the open lawn can also be added to accommodate many additional guests. The Carriage House Lawn sits on the bank of the river, providing stunning views and fantastic breezes from the waterway. The lawn boasts two picturesque possibilities for a ceremony site: under the oldest oak on property with an arbor of gracefully arching branches or under the dripping Spanish moss along the Ashley River.
This historic and elegant location defines quintessential Charleston and is the premier backdrop for any southern event. Offering expansive views of grand Live Oaks, manicured gardens and an open pasture from the beautiful Plantation House Veranda, this site is rich with history and tradition. Located in the heart of Magnolia's garden, the Veranda provides an unforgettable setting for your special day. Just a short stroll through our romantic style garden, with views of Magnolia's signature white bridge, the Long White Bridge Lawn is the perfect site for a garden ceremony. Also featuring a charming gazebo circa 1840 and a grand Live Oak, this lawn can accommodate 250 guests. The porch, over 20 feet wide, fully surrounds the plantation home and offers 360 degree views of the surrounding gardens and access to the lawns on all four sides of the house. Your guests can wander through the butterfly garden and around the expansive porch for your cocktail hour. The interior of the Plantation House is a Museum and Gift Shop, therefore it is not accessible after hours as part of the event space. There are, however, restrooms and a set-up area for catering purposes located on the first floor of the home and are specifically designated for event use. Finally, all your guests can continue down the back side of the Plantation House to be welcomed in your grand reception on the back lawn.
This intimate indoor conservatory boasts an array of tropical flora and its outdoor deck overlooking the cherished red bridge. The historic Schoolhouse Pond Lawn offers a natural setting for a waterfront ceremony. Surrounded by grand cypress trees, the deck opens into the garden through large French doors. With indoor seating for 60 guests around beautiful teak tables, this romantic venue features a winding path through tropical gardens and rare treats such as orchids, maidenhair ferns and other tropical plant life.
