A Low Country Wedding: Reception

Food, Drink, & Merriment at The Creek Club at I’On:

Now that we’ve shared some of our wedding photo teasers with our Charleston vendor list, our prep and pre-ceremony photos, and the photographs that Lauren took for us at the actual ceremony… I’ve got the final pics of all the fun we had eating, drinking, dancing, and more at the reception.

This was the perfectly superb chocolate peanut butter Grooms cake that my Aunt Lois made for Kevin… complete with ninja turtles for Kevin’s favorite childhood cartoons standing guard.

And of course Kevin’s mother son dance with his mom (my new mother-in-law!), Joan. They had such a great time dancing to “Simple Man” and their happiness just shined in all of their photos together.

The custom corn-hole game boards were a wedding gift that we absolutely loved! They really created a little extra fun for guests who wanted a break from dancing (and for a groom who’s a little too competitive for his own good!)
