The Creek Club at I’ON is a charming and intimate wedding venue with a surprising variety of options for photos. It’s on the water, it has an outdoor ceremony site and it offers in house catering. It’s a no nonsense, everything you need in one place kind of venue and photographically speaking Mark and I love it.
If you’ve already decided that this is the place you’re getting married then you probably are wondering what options there are for getting ready. There is an Inn at the entrance in I’ON: The Jacob Bond House. The interior of the rooms available here provide an elegant and classic look for the bride’s getting ready photos. There is even a small courtyard where the bride and bridesmaids can have pre ceremony photos done. The groom and groomsmen can get ready at the Club itself (there is a small changing room available and of course the main event room).
The venue main building and grounds can easily be customized and modified to match your vision for your wedding. If you have a larger guest count you can use the porch and patio for making additional tables available. Decorations and enhancement can make a big difference photographically speaking. We recommend adding strings of lights on the porch and dock for the evening of the reception.
The ceremony site at the Creek Club is also customizable. Depending on the direction of the sun you may choose the orientation of the assemble of chairs to protect your guests from staring into strong light. You may enhance the natural setting with additional elements of color, shape and personal meaning. The Creek Club at I’ON has to option to host ceremonies on the patio or porch in case of rain. The clear porch shutters can be rolled down to protect from windy rain.
This is it: we call it the the 15 minutes of love. It’s a time for just the two of you and the love and affection you have for each other. Here is where we play with light, nature, shapes and colors to create memorable photos that will last for the rest of your lives.
The lawn next to the club is the best place to take after the ceremony formal photos with larger groups. If you are planning on having some pre-ceremony photos taken as well, there are several lovely locations ideal for such purposes right inside of the I’ON community. Some of these locations provide lovely shade for the “too sunny not to squint” afternoons as well as a water backdrop.
Yes, this is literally the most fun time of the wedding. Shoes come off, ties come off, garters fly in the air and many treasured memories are made. Enjoy these examples of wedding reception photos at the creek club.
There’s so much fun packed in that last 10 minutes. As the sparklers get lit and the guests starts shouting for the bride and groom, the last photos of the day are taken. We are pleased that the club allows sparklers and of course we are charmed anytime our couples choose to depart by boat, an option not a lot of Charleston venues will have.
The staff and catering at the Creek Club at I’ON has always been impeccable, sometimes to a fault. We have enjoyed our meals every time we have photographed a wedding there.
