Wedding Photography at the Citadel Beach House


Nestled away on the Isle of Palms thirty minutes from downtown Charleston, the Citadel Beach House is a lovely waterfront venue. The House features two beautiful locations available for events, the indoor Ballroom and outdoor Blue & Grey Pavilion. The Ballroom includes the first floor, porches and gorgeous front lawn. Huge and inviting, the ballroom itself features beautiful wooden floors and many windows that compliment all wedding styles. The room is also versatile and couples can easily host formal dinners or more casual cocktail receptions. The front porch and lawn are excellent for guests who want to stretch their legs and catch up with family or friends.

The Blue & Grey Pavilion is as versatile as the Ballroom but is strictly an outdoor venue. For couples seeking a casual reception to their wedding day, this is a very attractive option as it presents opportunities for a fun, active event. The Pavilion and surrounding grounds can be transformed into any theme imaginable and, for guests who want to shed the suit for a pair of shorts, volleyball and basketball courts are available. For the couple that wants an elegant, outdoor reception, a sunset event would be perfect, especially if they chose to decorate the Pavilion with chic paper lanterns and wispy white curtains. Regardless of your taste or style, the Citadel Beach House is a beautiful option to consider when planning your day.


With two unique venues and gorgeous natural vistas, the Citadel Beach House is an attractive option that we look forward to. Our photographers enjoy any opportunity to capture newlyweds smiling at one another in the sea grass with the waves rolling in behind them. For those who choose the Ballroom, we love the simple elegance of the space and seeing what beautiful decorations and themes our couples come up with. The warm floors and open windows create an inviting atmosphere that enhances the fun pictures we’re able to catch of guests dancing and laughing.

Outside, the Pavilion gives our photographers the opportunity to not only capture the beach ceremony of your dreams but also a fun and eventful reception full of your favorite activities. While basketball or volleyball are not traditional reception fare, they do offer unique memories that would be perfect in a scrapbook. Outside of physical activities, the Pavilion offers plentiful natural beauty that we love to photograph our couples in. We look forward to seeing what you come up with for the Pavilion and the Ballroom at the Citadel Beach House!
