Bell Tower




Whether you are an esteemed Alumnus, Greenville native or admirer from the western seaboard Furman University can accommodate all your wedding needs in one convenient location. Voted Best Place to Say ‘I Do’ by Unique Venues in 2014, the breathtaking campus nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains lives up to that achievement. The Bell Tower, a well-known symbol for the university, is a standing-room only wedding venue ideal for up to 60 guests. Surrounded by the campus lake and the mountains of the upstate, it is sure to make a lasting impression on your ceremony. Standing on the land protruding from the water, your guests can admire the bride gliding down the shaded brick aisle alongside the graceful Furman Swans. As you and your loved one say I do, the peaceful lake will shimmer behind you and reflect the enormous and historic bell tower. This site is the perfect spot for your outdoor wedding!
