An Impressionist Wedding at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston

Aug 11, 2018

An Impressionist Wedding at Magnolia Plantation in Charleston

A wedding en plein air where each detail is sewn together by details of fine art and laced with elements of nature. As Monet brushed the iconic Bridge over a Pond of Water Lilies onto canvas, he had no other wish than to present a respite for the mind, a dreamlike utopia. Willowing shades of green, sky blue, buttery yellows and hues of white caught mingling together by the pond’s reflection gave way to a calming tranquility. In the same way Monet’s garden provided a romantic escape for city-dwellers, this styled wedding slips away into the gardens of South Carolina’s Magnolia Plantation, bringing this work in Impressionism to life.
From the bride’s garden-gathered bouquet and her glazed crown of foliage to the vines intricately sewn into her custom Sabrina Dahan wedding gown and her hand-stitched Bella Belle t-strap shoes, each element of this styled wedding is just like a painting, capturing a moment in time that belonged to another world. 
This wedding inspiration is a composition of French old-world enchantment, made timeless by the beauty of nature. Both the ring and the silver platter are odes to antiquity, allowing their simplicity to compliment the abundance of willows and flowers planted on the centerpiece, the wedding cake and around the reception area. From the bride’s makeup to the elegant paper goods, the color palette is a direct reflection of Monet’s masterpiece in summer. 
 
Framed by the romance of love, this wedding inspiration is a dreamlike impressionist painting brought to life.
