Stunning Blooms at Magnolia Plantation

Magnolia Plantation is one of our favorite venues! The water views and rustic charm have year round appeal, but a spectacular display of azalea blooms make early spring oh-so special...

These gorgeous photos were provided by the talented team at Richard Bell Photography. And the gorgeous couple, Savanna and Zack, are every bit as sweet as they look! Congratulations you two. We wish you all the happiness in the world!

Savanna and Zack said "I Do" March 10, 2017. Azaleas can begin blooming as early as February, and the duration of azalea season depends on the weather (cold temperatures can cause blooms to drop). Want to book Magnolia Plantation for your wedding? Something is always in bloom. Visit their 12-Month Bloom Gallery to learn more.

Relish is a preferred vendor for Magnolia Plantation, and we would be happy to recommend other vendors (such as Richard Bell Photography) who are well acquainted with the venue. Schedule a complimentary consultation for more information.

A Magnolia Plantation Wedding

We love Magnolia Plantation, and this Fixer Upper inspired wedding will make you fall in love with it too!

Our beautiful bride, Libbie, channeled her favorite HGTV designer Joanna Gaines when planning her dream wedding. Event decor featured rich textures, a soft color palette and typographical elements. Read all about Libbie's inspiration (and the vendors that we collaborated up with) at


Congrats to Libbie and Kaleb! We had so much fun catering this event!


Speaking of fun (and Joanna Gaines worthy typography), check out this gorgeous bar setup...

Water View and Waterfront Venues in Charelston

Water is one of the most appealing aspects of Charleston’s landscape. The downtown peninsula boasts harbor views, and the surrounding area offers a mixture of marshlands, creeks, ponds, waterways and beaches. With all that water to choose from, it’s no wonder that venues with a view are popular among Charleston brides.

Waterfront Venues with Benefits

We recently had the pleasure of catering a wedding reception at Alhambra Hall. It’s a great location with a beautiful waterfront ceremony lawn. Tables and chairs are included, and the venue allows for all-day set up (as early as 10am). The facilities have been recently renovated, and there is a kitchen on property. There is also plenty of parking available.

Every venue is unique, and our favorites (listed above) boast a variety of special features. Please feel free to contact us for a caterer’s perspective on a venue of your choosing.
