No matter the season, Magnolia Plantation is stunning. But this favorite Charleston wedding venue was particularly good to photographer Sydney and bride Jessica during a recent bridal session that took the group all over the stunning property.
“The lavish, drooping moss and dense greenery creates perfect shade against the bright, hot Southern heat,” photographer Sydney remembers. “With so much rich history and thousands of lush flowers, this location was nothing short of a photographer’s paradise for me.”
With her mom along for support, bride Jessica met up with Sydney on a warm day last year to capture a few photos of her in her romantic wedding dress.
When you’re shooting at such an awe-inspiring location, you need an equally stunning wardrobe—and Jessica made sure her gown was up to the challenge!
“[Jessica] picked this dress online a long time ago in good faith, knowing it was the one for her….and was it! The color mix of ivory and a hint of champagne blush looked great on her,” says photographer Sydney. “This dress’s beaded pattern on the mermaid silhouette with tender lace was so elegant. My favorite part about the gown was the attachable layered, full ruffled trail that made it look royal.”
