My husband and I decided to elope in September and chose the Inn at Meander Plantation based on reviews from this site. The location was beautiful and the officiant did a wonderful job with the ceremony. However, I would not recommend that anyone choose the Inn for their marriage. One of the assistants at the Inn took photos of us around the plantation and during the ceremony, which was part of the rather expensive elopement package we purchased. She gave us a SD card that had nothing on it. I was able to reach Suzanne once to see if they had a copy and she said she was searching for them, but if they couldn't find copies, she would invite us back for photos and a stay. She has not followed through. Both my husband and I have called and emailed the Inn keeper numerous times since the ceremony to remedy the situation but we have been rudely and directly ignored. This is the least professional establishment in my opinion, and the demeanor of the staff ruined what was supposed to be a beautiful and memorable experience. Thus, if you are considering eloping, and want to choose the Inn, I would advise you not to.
