Fun Fact: We're crazy kids who booked their wedding venue before visiting it. Why? well, we were supposed to visit it on our first trip to Charleston in March, 2016, but I got a little bratty and cancelled the appointment. We also decided Charleston was "wedding Central" and weren't sure we wanted to go with a cliché destination.
Fast forward to us actually planning our wedding. Friends of ours had visited the venue, the photos online were gorgeous (seriously, so pinterest-y) and the price was just right. We booked Magnolia Plantation and didn't visit until 6 months before the wedding. On our first visit we knew we'd booked the right place; Magnolia Plantation and Gardens is absolutely beautiful, even just as a day trip excursion.
