  • We selected the Magolia Plantation without ever stepping foot on the property and couldn’t have been happier with our decision. We chose the Veranda for our Reception and the white bridge lawn for our Ceremony. We held our cocktail hour on the back lawn. Leanza and Richard were phenomenal and a pleasure to work with. Richard and Leanza even drove us around on the golf cart to take some pictures as it was blazing hot and we were on a short timeline. I can’t thank them enough for that!! The property was picturesque and provided a gorgeous background for our photos as well! There were so many lovely photo spots with such diverse backgrounds! We will definitely be coming back to visit the Magnolia and relive our special day! Thanks again Leanza and Richard for making our dream destination wedding a reality and so memorable for us!

  • Probably the most beautiful place in the Lowcountry. My daughters wedding was magical and breathtakingly gorgeous. Staff was friendly and super helpful. Everything went off without a problem.

  • My husband and I eloped to Charleston, SC from Canada this past September and chose Magnolia Plantation and Gardens as our ceremony venue. The staff were SO accommodating and welcoming and the plantation is absolutely breathtaking, even in the pouring rain! We had a wonderful time exploring the beautiful grounds while having our photos taken here and couldn't be happier with how everything turned out.

  • I absolutely love this plantation! We were lucky and had the plantation to our selves the day of our wedding and were able to go to some beautiful locations on the property for pictures. Everyone kept talking about how beautiful the carriage house and surrounding area was and how much it added to the wedding. The staff made everything easy and really helped make our day special.

  • What a magnificent venue for a wedding reception on the veranda. Thank you, Jessica Cruz. Our guests really enjoyed the tram tour of the beautiful gardens while the bridal pictures were being taken. Thank you for your help in planning my daughters wedding .

  • I would highly recommend anyone looking for a wedding venue to check out Magnolia Plantation. Cindy and Leanza were so easy to work with! We planned on having our ceremony and reception at the Veranda house but it was POURING rain on our wedding day! They worked with our event planner and helped move to location to the carriage house. Although this was not the venue I wanted and had envisioned, it was beautiful. I cannot say enough good things about how great they were to work with. After the ceremony Richard was SOOO kind and took us around in the rain on a golf cart to anywhere we wanted to go for pictures. He helped move picnic tables around for picture purposes and was so patient. This man deserves a medal for his hard work! All in all it was lovely and I would recommend it to anyone!

  • There is nothing else to say except that Magnolia is THE PERFECT venue for a wedding in the Charleston area! It is quintessential Charleston plantation!! We held our reception at the Conservatory. Our intimate party thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful grounds and greenhouse. The grounds are brightly colored, clean, and full of life! The staff at Magnolia is friendly and helpful. The cost of the venue rental is very inexpensive and includes the teak table and chairs! This venue also lends itself to some gorgeous photography! Richard Bell Photography s the premier photographer for this venue. They know the area well and are just the absolute best at what they do! Cruz Coordinators is invaluable at this venue as well, as owner, Jessica Cruz, used to be the event coordinator at Magnolia! Highly recommend this venue!

  • I wanted the classic "southern" wedding. I must have gone to 20 different venues in Charleston before I went to Magnolia Plantation. The event coordinator Jessica was so helpful and friendly. The carriage house was perfect, it sits on the water and is surrounded by giant oak trees, and even a couple beautiful peacocks were walking around. Its going to be magical. I only gave it 4 starts for value...and only because its a little far away from where my guests are staying, and I am going to rent a bus to make sure everyone gets home safe.

  • We had our wedding at Magnolia Plantation Carriage House in April 2016, and reserved the date from out of state. I only met the site coordinator once, we didn't have much interaction with them besides reservation, payment, and day-of final info. Our wedding day was beautiful and everything we were hoping for. The flowers were blooming, the sun was shining and the animals were out! We had some visiting peacocks, at one point during the night a raccoon ran by, it was awesome! Overall it was a good location, all the guests commented on the beauty of the site. One of the bigger perks was that it had a great kitchen for the caterer, had a golf cart to transport us to different locations for photos, had a nice fire pit for outside, and had seriously sprayed the place for mosquitos (a concern for spring in Charleston).

  • We were married at the Carriage House in April and it was perfect! Magnolia was originally our second choice of venue, but the fact that they were so easy to work with compared to others moved them into first place. We had originally booked only half of the day for our wedding, but quickly realized we would need the venue for the whole day, and the staff at Magnolia was flexible and helpful with the process. The facilities at Magnolia lend themselves to being adapted into most any vision, which was perfect for us, since I designed most of our wedding décor and vision. The Carriage House perfectly accommodated our crowd of about 100 guests. I can't say that the venue was not expensive, but we knew early on that the place was going to be important to us, so it was worth the price to us. We were lucky to have booked way in advance.

  • We booked Magnolia Plantation and the carriage house for our destination wedding, sight unseen. Once we were able to visit a few months before our wedding, we knew we picked the perfect venue. Located along the Ashley River, the carriage house has so many great features - the water view, big lawn area for the ceremony and cocktail hour, a patio for dancing and the DJ, plus inside the carriage house for dinner. The bridal suite came in handy for us girls to get to the venue early, relax, pop some champagne, then get dressed, all before the guys and our guests arrived. Rain was projected on our big day, and we were happy to have a venue that allowed for flexibility - we could easily tent the patio area, and do the ceremony there, or move everything inside. Thankfully, the rain held out, but it helped ease our minds knowing we had multiple options. I loved having the tiki torches and fire pit for our guests to enjoy after the sun went down, and it cooled down a bit. After our ceremony, a ... Read more
