Magnolia Plantation Wedding

Any time we hear from Red White and Green Photography, we know we’re in for a treat — so imagine when you add on the talents of Wildflowers Inc and Charming Events of Charleston! Today’s wedding at Charleston’s Magnolia Plantation has a wedding theme we’ve fallen deeply in love with — “love is weird.” Read on for more about how this couple made the theme work for their wedding day:

From the bride, Jenny: Nick and I met at the School of the Arts: school of filmmaking in Winston Salem, NC. I was there for production design and he was there for producing. He approached me within my first month at school, and we’ve been together ever since. A lot of the items we used for the decor were actually set dressing I have left over from films I’ve art directed or designed.

My biggest inspiration for the day was less about how I wanted everything to look, and more about the mood I wanted to create. Many weddings are just oh so serious. I viewed the day as a time of immense joy and happiness and knew that from the very beginning of the wedding I wanted to set the tone to fun, lighthearted, but still a little sentimental. That’s the compass I used for all of my judgement, “will this make my guests feel good inside?” So from our music choices to our made up umbrella candy shower ceremony, to our pulp fiction inspired first dance, we wanted to keep it fun and keep it a little weird. I picked the “Love is Weird” theme not only because it suited my relationship with my now husband, but also because I knew it would justify me basically just throwing together things I liked for the decor. For DIY projects we decided to keep it pretty simple, I created our table markers by spray painting unique porcelain figurines, and I made place cards with the silhouette of creature of each guests corresponding table. I made a bunch of the signage and personalized a few items like the mailbox, but, like I said, I wanted to keep it simple.

Any advice for couples planning their weddings now? I have a TON of advice for brides planning now, but the best of it is to at the very least, hire a day of coordinator. That may sound a little biased since myself and my matron of honor have recently put our production design backgrounds to work and started our wedding planning business, Muse & Delphia. Even so, there came a moment for me where I didn’t want my wedding to be a job, and I didn’t want it to be a job for my friends or family. Handing my plans off to someone else to implement on the day was some of the best money we spend on our wedding – next to of course, our amazing photographer!
