    Southern and Classy

    We had a wedding of 100 guests at the Belle Crane Inn and it was perfect! Being the mother of the bride, I was able to enjoy the special day and not worry. Mrs. Barber (host/owner) and her staff were wonderful to work with especially Gabby who was fantastic and super helpful the day of the wedding. Mrs. Barber kept things organized and on schedule while being kind. She met with us several times before the wedding and was always quick to return my calls. Her recommendation for caterer and DJ were excellent. The groomsmen got ready off site while the bridesmaids got hair and makeup done offsite, but got ready in the beautiful bridal suite. The venue was absolutely beautiful, intimate, and elegant.

    Hidden Gem

    We are so thankful that we found this hidden gem! From our first visit, we were taken with the beauty and warmth of the home and grounds. Everything is extremely well kept and immaculate!

    Mrs. Barber was so very helpful and delightful from the very beginning all the way up to the very end. She was always very prompt to answer or respond to our many calls and emails (quite a few). She was extremely helpful with any questions or decisions we needed help with.

    The day of the wedding, we met all of the staff at the Belle Crane. Everyone was so extremely nice, helpful, and accommodating. With all of their support, everything ran smoothly and without a hitch! We were treated like family and couldn't have asked for a better experience or people to work with.

    We couldn’t be happier with our wedding/reception venue choice of the The Belle Crane Inn. It was the perfect place for our beautiful, intimate, and very special day!

    Thank you again Mrs. Barber and staff!

    Pulling off a 2020 wedding never looked easier ... Belle Crane is remarkable!

    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, made my day perfect:
    * Inclusive & reasonable cost (caterer, DJ, venue)
    * Day of wedding coordinators (Margaret & her staff is the best)
    * Amazing food!!!
    * Venue is so beautiful, that with minimal decorating, you have an amazing space
    * Belle Crane staff will go above and beyond to make your day special

    I would, without hesitation, recommend them to anyone for any event!
