We’re delighted to share Samantha and Robert’s Magnolia Plantation Wedding. We always enjoy photographing weddings at Magnolia Plantation‘s Carriage House, and love to see the different way that couples and planners use this beautiful venue. When we asked Samantha and Robert what they envisioned for the style of their wedding, they told us “organic al-fresco” with accents of copper and rose gold. We were excited to see their vision come to life and Jessica Cruz of Cruz Coordination along with all the other great vendors didn’t disappoint! Samantha and Robert hosted their guests for dinner on the lawn beneath cafe lighting and a waterside view. Their family style tables were decorated so creatively with moss table runners on which sat bronze geometric sculptures and table numbers. Their place cards added to the organic feel by using brown card stock. And a chandelier hung from an oak tree branch added a soft, romantic element that really completed the outdoor space.
Samantha and Robert themselves looked wonderful and well-suited for the organic and romantic setting. Samantha’s hair, worn in a loose romantic up-do by Lashes and Lace, looked beautiful with her jeweled headpiece and pendant earrings. Her classic a-line gown was lovely and showed off her floral tattoo. Robert wore a tweed J Crew suit with elbow patches, suspenders and an awesome floral tie. Grooms, take note; floral ties are great. Robert also wore a unique boutonniere featuring wheat and a bronze paper rose. Emily had a great time walking around Magnolia Plantation grabbing photos of these two. And we love their last portrait taken at night with Samantha holding a paper umbrella!
This cute pair met in high school (yes, high school sweethearts!) when they were both in a vocational program (Samantha in Cosmetology and Robert in electrical engineering). In order to participate in these programs, they would regularly take a half hour bus ride from their high school, and got to know each other on these trips. The rest was history! We’re so happy that Samantha and Robert traveled down to Charleston for their wedding. Congratulations again and thank you for choosing Riverland Studios to document such a special day!
