A Romantic, Vintage-Themed Wedding at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens in Charleston, South Carolina
Francesca Clyburn (28 and a CPA) and Edward (Ed) Johnson (38 and a commercial analyst) planned a vintage Pride and Prejudice–inspired wedding with shades of pink and a mix of rustic and feminine details.
Francesca’s timeless dress was all lace with a V neck, delicate cap sleeves and fit-and-flare skirt. “I wanted a light, airy dress that would be comfortable for an outdoor ceremony,” she says. She added a beaded champagne sash for some sparkle.
The couple said “I do” beneath a canopy of ancient oak trees draped in Spanish moss on the bank of the Ashley River. “The backdrop was already so beautiful, so all we added was a single large crystal chandelier that hung above us in the trees,” Francesca says.
Pieces of vintage velvet furniture added old-world charm to the rustic farmhouse reception.
