Charleston | Magnolia Wedding Workshop

This past April, I ventured to Charleston, SC for the Magnolia Wedding Workshop at The Governor Thomas Bennett House! I believe education is one of the most important things you can do for your self and your business whether you’ve been in business 2 years or 10 years!  “Educating the mind without educating the heart, is no education at all-Aristotle”  This quote resonated with me, and I thought to myself, where else could I educate my mind, meet fellow creatives, and educate my heart….Charleston, SC…YES!!!

Charleston is just one of those places that holds a special place in my southern girl  heart!!! The streets are alive with beautiful architecture, those gorgeous moss trees, and the most amazing history! Oh, and Jana and Michelle, hosts of the Magnolia Wedding Workshop, from Magnolia Wedding Photography are just the BEST!!

The first day of the workshop at The Governor Thomas Bennett House was full of education, a fabulous lunch with floral linens (I wish I had taken a photo of the floral linen, it was AMAZING), and a styled shoot full of southern charm!

Venita Aspen was the image of Southern elegance in her Coastal Knot gown and jewelry from Melissa Tyson Designs. Her hair and makeup was flawless by  Updos for I Dos! While Alexander Saunders wore a bowtie from Brackish Bowties, handcrafted in Charleston, to accent his stylish suit!  The invitation suite by Charlotte + Lily , shoes by Bella Belle , cake by Vanilla Bean Bake Shoppe , rentals by Event Works , linens by La Tavola, and florals by Wildflowers Inc created a romantic and soft touch that brought all the little details together! It was truly amazing!! I still have photographer dreams of that blush dress!! We ended the evening in downtown Charleston with dinner and the start of new friendships to come!

Was the workshop worth it?! I get asked this all the time when I attend an educational event!! And my answer is YES!!! I strongly believe that any educational opportunity you can attend or create, whether it be through a large group or a mentor session,  do it! We never stop learning!! You will learn, create community, and you will come away with a happy heart!!

I am already planning my next trip to Charleston, and I hope you enjoy a peek into the Magnolia Wedding Workshop styled shoot!
