Jodi and Steven planned a destination Magnolia Plantation wedding with a brunch theme. Her vision for the wedding included, “Rustic, vintage with shades of blush and pink. We are having lawn games, a great blue grass band and a mimosa & Bloody Mary bar.” Their focus was on friends and family having a good time gathered together at Magnolia Plantation. Their brunch theme offered delectable creations from B.Gourmet Catering that include chicken n’ waffles, summer salad with bacon skewers, marinated flank steak, and shrimp n’ grits. Pre-ceremony snacks included doughnuts and milk. Wedding favors were a miniature bag of coffee beans with the packaging scribed with Johnny Cash’s definition of paradise, ” – this morning, with her, having coffee.”


During the ceremony, the couple incorporated a planting tree ritual that included Steven’s two sons. This symbolized the beginning of their new family. Along with being at Jodi and Steven’s side during the nuptials, the boys shared a thank you and brief toast during the reception. After a morning filled with love and celebration, the couple ran through tossed rose petals and planned on continuing the post-wedding celebration in Downtown Charleston. Congratulations to Jodi and Steven!
