Ashlyn and Mark officially became Mr. and Mrs. Stewarts on the 11th of November, 2021 at the Veranda at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens. The Veranda is one of three wedding locations that Magnolia offers to their couples. The Veranda offers a ceremony space overlooking the popular white bridge of Magnolia, the porch of the Magnolia house for cocktail hour, an outdoor space surrounded by trees for your reception, and a bridal suite for any last minute touch ups before you walk down the aisle.
Amy was their lead planner and helped the couple make both planning and design decisions. Carrie was her assistant planner on the wedding day and made sure to help Amy with the wedding proceedings to ensure a smooth day.
The bride and bridesmaids had their hair and makeup done by Silhouette on Site. The artists arrived at the bride’s getting ready location to begin hair and makeup to allow for a comfortable and easy morning for the bride and her bridal party.
The bridal and bridesmaids bouquets were supplied by One Tree Bridal. The Etsy company beautifully arranged the bouquets and shipped them to the bride’s address for her special day. Fake flower arrangements are becoming a popular alternative for flower bouquets, as they are beautiful and cost effective if you are trying to stay within your wedding budget.
The ceremony took place at the white bridge lawn. Amy made sure to have the ceremony set-up in a way that the popular white bridge was the background for the heartfelt ceremony. Flower petals were laid along the sides of the aisle for a special touch.
After the ceremony, the guests walked over to the Veranda lawn for cocktail hour and reception.
The couple had a modern boho wedding. Their decor included pampas grass, pastel pink table runners, and a LED sign that were prominent decor for their wedding theme.
As the sun began to set, the cafe lights were turned on for a romantic evening under the stars.
Once the dinner service was finished, the couple cut their cake and began dancing the night away. Taylor, from Pinnacle Weddings, was the DJ for the evening and made sure to keep the night fun and lively. The bride even got to try out the turntables.
The couple had a special night time shoot with their photographer. This is a new photography addition that many couples are adding to their wedding day.
Ashlyn changed into her party dress for the newlywed send-off. Their guests lit up the way with multi-colored glow sticks.
