Unmatched Scenic Southern Charm

Magnolia Plantation & Gardens rests on the banks of the Ashley River and offers three gorgeous wedding venues. The Piazza, the Carriage House and the Pavilion each afford ceremony, cocktail hour and reception space surrounded by 66 breathtaking acres of gardens, serene water features and romantic pathways.
Immerse yourselves in dramatic centuries-old live oak trees covered in Spanish moss. Float across the iconic fairytale white bridge. Capture idyllic imagery among the garden’s vibrant azaleas, wisteria, hydrangea, magnolias and camellia. Host your welcome party, ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner and dancing throughout a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces.
Settle into Southern charm and elegance inside the original 1840 Carriage House and share your vows under the loving shade of a 400-year-old live oak. Gather on the Long White Bridge Lawn, flow into the historic Flowerdal Garden for cocktail hour and host dinner on the Magnolia House Piazza. Opt for an intimate Live Oak Pavilion gathering or embrace an elaborate celebration on the lawn under a grand event tent. Wherever you land, you’ll be met with unparalleled Lowcountry beauty, thriving natural habitats and more than 300 years of history.

The Location


One of the oldest plantations in the South, this immaculate historic home and garden is situated directly across the Ashley River from North Charleston.

Things To Do

Charleston is steeped in rich Southern history and culture, dappled with lovingly preserved architecture, a church-spired skyline and lush legendary gardens.
The historic port city is a foodie haven with award-winning chefs serving fresh-caught seafood and delectable Lowcountry comfort dishes. Civil War sites and iconic plantations, Fort Sumter boat tours and horse-drawn carriage rides clacking down cobblestone streets offer a taste of the past while mile after mile of soft white-sand coastline delivers five beautiful beach enclaves, yachting, fishing and acclaimed golf courses. A walk down King Street unveils locally owned and high-end boutiques and the Saturday morning Marion Square farmers market is the place for local produce and artisan crafts.
