We here at Magnificent Moments Weddings have had the pleasure so working at some pretty breathtaking venues. Some that are so gorgeous they are just too good not to share! Today our Venue Spotlight will focus on The Dairy Barn at Anne Springs Close Greenway.
Anne Springs Close Greenway is an extensive protected natural area in Fort Mill, South Carolina. The Greenway boasts thousands of acres full of forests and pastures that include trails for hiking, biking, kayaking, and horseback riding – a perfect place for weekend family fun. But the site also includes an amazing wedding venue, The Dairy Barn.
The Dairy Barn is just as its names describes, a vintage barn that was built in 1947 to house dairy cows. However, in recent years it has been renovated to become a spectacular event space. The two-story white barn has amazing windows to let in some of the most gorgeous light you have ever seen. The upstairs loft is the perfect space for your ceremony and the downstairs barn can hold up to 200 people for your seated reception.

Not only is The Dairy Barn a beautiful place but it is full of beautiful people. We sat down with Venue Sales Manager, Katie Suddreth to find out more about her, weddings, and this awesome venue.
How many weddings do you generally host per year?
“A lot! Weddings are definitely my favorite event to host and in 2017 we hosted about 175. I loved being a part of every single unique one!”
What are some of your favorite “different” things you have seen couples do at their wedding?
“All the weddings we host are so different. I love seeing the bride and grooms personalities in the details. I guess if I had to pick a few favorite things, I would say handwritten wooden signage, alternative to cakes- like doughnut walls and all the greenery I have been seeing lately in weddings. I think with our rustic wooden barn venues, the greenery just pops and it never goes out of style!”
What is your favorite part about working in the wedding industry?
“My favorite part about working in the wedding industry would be getting to share a bride’s most special day of her life. I feel like me and other wedding vendors have the power to make the event spectacular. While having that pressure is nerve racking, it is also exciting to be able to feel like you can make someone very happy with your part of their wedding. I am a people pleaser by nature and that’s why I love what I do.”
Best piece of advice to a newly engaged couple?
“I may be biased because I sell venues, but my best advice to newly engaged couples would be to pick the venue first. If you can be flexible with dates, then you will be more focused on the perfect venue rather than a certain date that may be taken by your dream venue. Once you have the venue and date though, I feel like the rest of the details fall into place!”
If your looking for a venue for your big day definitely check out The Dairy Barn, we know you will love it and the people that make these amazing events come to life there just as much as we do!
