A Magnolia Elopement - A Charleston Wedding Officiant's favorite spot

Updated: Feb 17

Dear Charleston Brides and Grooms,


Magnolia Plantation and Garden is one of the most popular locations in Charleston for a wedding or elopement ceremony. And for good reason... It is stunning! As a Charleston Wedding Officiant, this is one of my favorite locations for a wedding ceremony!


Whatever your vision is as a couple getting married in Charleston, Magnolia can deliver. An intimate ceremony under the oaks, views of the Ashley River, or a more formal reception overlooking one of the gorgeous gardens, Magnolia has you covered.


Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is also hugely popular for an elopement ceremony! Jessica and Liem (and their pup Wagyu) choose the gazebo for their Charleston elopement. I have seen my fair share of elopement ceremony venues during my tenure as a Charleston wedding officiant, but I would be hard pressed to find a spot more beautiful than this!

As a wedding officiant, I love seeing couples smile and laugh like this during their elopement ceremony!


Here are the top three reasons I LOVE a Charleston Elopement!


1. The “Just Us” Experience - No pressure, no drama, the ceremony and the day are about the couple committing to spend their lives together!! All you need is each other (and a great elopement photographer and wedding officiant)!


2. Valuing Experiences Over Stuff - Building lasting memories of an intimate day. Exploring the grounds following your elopement ceremony is a fun way to celebrate!


3. Less Stress and Anxiety - Focus on your fiancé and the new family you are creating!

Jessica and Liem made it official and signed their marriage license under the gazebo, which was decked out with some beautiful florals!

After their ceremony, Jessica and Liem spent the day exploring the Gardens. The famous red bridge is the perfect spot for a photo op!
