  • 2020 wedding …. people thought we were crazy and we would have been had it not been for Margaret and the Belle Crane! Setting up social distancing seating, no problem for Margaret and her staff. Working out ways to make sure areas were set up to keep our more sensitive guests away from congestion, while still allowing them to be part of everything, easily done with Margaret's patience and ideas. Having your officiant test positive for Covid two days prior to the wedding, well, time to get frantic! Yes, that happened, but the way Margaret and the venue staff worked through this, was simply remarkable. Minor adjustments to ceremony seating, coupled with our laptop and Bluetooth speaker, we were able to virtually connect with our officiant while still having an unbelievably beautiful service. Margaret never complained when we asked for many walkthroughs and asked the same questions and the day of the wedding went over perfectly. This, among the following positives to this venue, ...

  • We had a wonderful experience at the Belle Crane Inn. From the moment we first stepped on property, Mrs. Barber made us feel welcome and calm as it was apparent she knew exactly what she was doing. She talked us through their services and options. She told us to go home and talk and think about it- no pressure at all- but honestly, we had made our decision before we even left the property! Trust her recommendations, they are spot on. The ceremony site situated amongst the magnolias is spectacular. The bride makes a grand entrance off the wrap around porch that is absolutely stunning. Our guests loved meandering on the grounds during cocktail hour and the tent with the dance floor was a dream for dinner and dancing. Every detail was covered by the staff from the golf carts picking guests up at their cars upon arrival to having everything packed up and ready for us to easily grab after the send off. It truly was the most wonderful evening. As a mother of the bride, I didn't nee... Read more

  • We fell in love with the place the moment we saw it and Mrs. Barber and her staff were all amazing. The place was elegant and very relaxing. She was very helpful in getting the catering, DJ and setting up everything for us we did not have to worry about anything but getting married. we highly recommend Belle Crane Inn.

  • My husband and I were looking for a venue that felt like home and we found it at the Belle Crane. On our first visit to the venue, we already knew it was going to be the place for us! The grounds are absolutely beautiful and the tent structure was gorgeous for our reception. Our florist was able to add a wooden pergola draped with flowers and it felt like a dream come true! Ms. Barber handles everything and connected us to our caterer, DJ, and the tent vendor company. She was a part of the process every step of the way and she even directed our event the day of to make sure everything went off without a hitch! We had a super short engagement but we didn't feel rushed since Ms. Barber handled the logistics. The only downside was that I wasn't able to get ready at the venue with my friends- My husband and I did not have a "bridal party" but I had 4 really close girl friends with me. It turned out not to be too much of a hassle since I ended up getting ready with my friends in a hot... Read more

  • Ms.Margaret Barbara was a life saver for us during Covid-19. We made a last minute pull from The Terrace at Cedar Hill who were unable to host us for our August 1,2020 wedding. Margaret was a wonderful listening ear and she has a beautifully landscaped venue. With its large and spread out property it made our guests feel comfortable and able to be socially distanced throughout the event. Margaret was helpful in so many ways. She provided us with information for a new and more affordable caterer. She was flexible with our seating arrangements and had great advice for how to set up tents, linens, bar, gift table, and any other wedding related question we had . She was there every step of the way and was able to help plan all of this for us 2 weeks shy of our wedding since we changed venues! I wish we had found her first because it is not a plan B venue, it was an amazing venue that I would recommend to every engaged couple during Covid-19 or not!!!!

  • Our overall experience with the owner was top notch! Unfortunately due to the COVID-19 virus, we had to postpone our wedding but I wanted to rate this venue anyway. I would highly recommend having a wedding and/or reception at this venue! It’s a beautiful place and the owner is available and responsive and accommodating. She helps you try to stay within your budget and is very professional as well. The Inn and overall property are immaculate and beautifully maintained. My favorite part is the wrap around porch. Gorgeous!

  • The Belle Crane Inn staff was instrumental in making our wedding as wonderful as it was in the midst of a pandemic. They worked closely with us to follow all governmental guidelines and safety protocols while still creating our dream wedding. The staff was helpful, thought 4 steps ahead, and alleviated all stress. The venue is gorgeous and has so many contacts with vendors in the community if you need any help at all. We are so thankful for the Belle Crane and the Barbers!

  • Mrs. Margaret Barber was a major part of my wedding's success at the Belle Crane Inn in Fort Mill, SC. The Belle Crane is a Southern, charming venue surrounded by magnolias and well kept landscaping. The house is beautiful on the outside, but the inside is magnificent for pictures and our ceremony. Ms. Margaret was a wonderful host, always ready to provide options and provides professional services. She is kind, trustworthy, and has a great balance of flexibility and structure. She maintains an orderly staff and referenced other amazing professionals to assist (ex. DJ, catering). My guests (including my groom's and my family/wedding party) were comfortable and extremely impressed with the venue; even after the wedding, I am still getting comments and endless praise of the hospitality. If I had to go through another wedding, I would only do it with Ms. Margaret at the Belle Crane.

  • We got lucky and found this amazing venue, and it was so close to home! Mrs. Barber was so great to work with. She was very detail oriented and accommodating to what we wanted for our special day. She has so much experience planning the events and knows who to recommend for your other services. This was a great help to us because we didn't have time to find caterers, and taste test food, and find decorations, and all the other details. She had the wreaths and Christmas tree up 2 days after Thanksgiving. We were so happy to have these decorations up for our pictures! The fee included all the tables and table cloths, the chairs and the arbor for our small gathering. The Belle Crane Inn is spotless, and it was really nice to hear all of our guests say how nice it was, and how did we find it! The huge wrap-around porch was great, and gave everyone more space due to the rain. We would recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful venue, at a reasonable price, with an ow...

  • Where do I even start? My husband and I are busy people. I work as a public school teacher and Navy Reservist. He is always on the road traveling. The idea of planning a wedding was daunting to say the least. Margaret put all of our worries to rest. From the time we booked her until the moment we left at the end of our wonderful night, she took care of us. She handled all of the details so we could just enjoy our time with our families and friends. She was incredibly easy to work with-responsive, caring, and open to communicating with us about anything needed to ensure everything came out the way we envisioned it. On the night before my wedding, she called me to prepare me for the possibility that rain might get in the way of my plans for an outdoor ceremony. On the day of, she took great care to discuss possible contingency plans with me. When the rain continued throughout the day leading up to my outdoor, evening ceremony, she took every possible care to stick to the plan t... Read more

  • The Belle Crane completely exceeded my expectations and wildest dreams! Planning the wedding was incredibly easy and low-stress. Mrs. Barber thought of everything. They helped us to have a fairy tale day. The house is very warm and inviting, with a gorgeous wrap-around porch. The outside areas were 'picture perfect', with beautiful magnolias and an immaculate lawn. We didn't have to worry about anything the day of the wedding, their team took care of every little detail. We basically just had to show up! I highly, highly recommend the Belle Crane if you are looking for a classic Southern wedding. I couldn't have been happier!!

  • The venue itself is stunning and elegant! Our first couple encounters with the venue director- Margaret Barber, were pleasant and efficient. Going forth, when my mother would communicate with her, she was very rude and refused to write up a contract with us (not professional). The day of the wedding, she would not give us the freedom to put things where we wanted them placed, and she tried removing our videographer from the facility. Her two assistants were very friendly and ran things smoothly. But unfortunately I can not recommend this venue, because of the attitude we received from the director.
