Charleston Elopement at Magnolia Plantation

This August Beauty Asylum owner and stylist Jessica Lyness teamed up with Charleston hairstylist and makeup artist Domanique Johnston for a wedding elopement in Charleston, South Carolina. Our beautiful bride Cierra traveled in with her fiance and sister (maid of honor) to share an intimate ceremony at Magnolia Plantation and Gardens.

We started the day getting the two ladies ready at The Dewberry luxury hotel in the heart of downtown Charleston. The light was amazing and furnishings were a stunning backdrop! Cierra not only trusted us for her big day she trusted our on-site hair and makeup professionals enough to forego a hair and makeup trial. The day of the wedding we worked unanimously to create the perfect bridal hair and makeup look!

Towards the end of the getting ready process her photographer Alex Thornton Photography stepped in for the final getting ready photos. The Charleston heat is no joke so we encouraged Cierra to take advantage of Jessica’s airbrush makeup skills to ensure the longevity of her wedding day makeup.

Luckily, at Beauty Asylum we have a team of destination makeup artists and hairstylists willing to traveling to the romantic getaway across country or escape to the perfect beach or island wedding. We understand the importance of a traveling makeup artist/hairstylist being on-location for a destination wedding. The goal is to have beautiful hair and makeup with trusted professionals!
