on your upcoming wedding! Magnolia Plantation and Gardens would love to help make
your special day memorable. We offer several unique and elegant locations for
your event. Wedding ceremonies, receptions, rehearsal dinners, and photo shoots
may be held on the gardens throughout the year.
Magnolia's Wedding Sites
We have three different sites available for ceremonies and/or receptions.
Carriage House and Carriage House Lawn
The historic, recently-restored
historic Carriage House (c. 1840) overlooks the Ashley River, surrounded by ancient
Live Oaks and sweeping lawns. Once used to house Drayton family carriages, today
the building is both timeless and modern. Its exclusive riverside location makes
it the ideal Lowcountry Plantation venue. At night, real burning lanterns really
give the outdoor space a special charm.
At 4000 square feet, the Carriage
House is suitable for larger groups; the space can accommodate 150-175 for seated
dinners and up to 250 guests with buffet or hors d’oeuvre arrangements. Tens on
the lawn can be added if desired.
Plantation House Porch and Long Bridge
Enjoy restful views of grand Live Oaks and open pasture from the
beautiful Plantation House Porch. In the heart of the Garden, this historic and
elegant location is truly unique. The Plantation House Porch (20’ wide) fully
surrounds the home and will comfortably seat 150 people for a seated dinner. Buffet
or hors d’oeuvre arrangements permit 200-250 guests.
and Schoolhouse Pond Lawn
Home to exotic tropical flora, this intimate
indoor Conservatory and its outdoor deck overlooks Schoolhouse Pond and its famous
Red Bridge. Grand cypress trees surround the deck, which opens into the Conservatory
through large French doors. Here you will treat yourself and your guests to a
truly romantic and exotic experience. There is room for 50 people for cocktails
on the deck and seating for 75 at teak tables inside, where a winding path allows
for a stroll through the tropical gardens.
