Here are just a few reasons why guests choose Abney Hall as their wedding venue in Barnwell, SC, along with some helpful tips from our experienced wedding venue staff:
Choosing the appropriate-sied venue for your desired guest count is a critical decision. A venue's capacity affects the number of people you need to consider having at your ceremony and reception. As you're first starting out, we recommend having a guest count in mind as you're searching for the right venue. Try to stick with that number. You may fall in love with a particular venue, but if its max capacity can't accommodate your guest count, it may be time to cross them off your list.
Keep in mind that this is your big day. You shouldn't feel obligated to invite the college roommate you shared a dorm with for one semester. At the end of the day, your wedding venue should be one that can accommodate those closest to you.

A Midlands woman narrowly missed out on winning a $750 million grand prize in a recent Powerball drawing, but her ticket was good enough for her to walk away with a six-figure jackpot, South Carolina Education Lottery officials said.
Because the woman was one number shy of exactly matching the July 12 Powerball drawing, she had to settle for a $150,000 consolation prize, lottery officials said in a news release.
The woman made it clear her feelings weren’t hurt.
“I’m elated,” she said in the release.
She bought her winning ticket at the OM Jay 2002 LLC gas station/convenience store at 10193 US Hwy. 78 in the Elko section of Barnwell County.
The winner will be allowed to retain some privacy, as South Carolina is one of 11 states — along with Arizona, Delaware, Georgia, Kansas, Maryland, New Jersey, North Dakota, Ohio, Texas and Virginia — that allow lottery winners to remain anonymous.
The woman said her newfound windfall won’t be used on any flashy impulse buys, but instead will be put aside for retirement, according to the release.
Her ticket matched four of the five white numbers and the red Powerball number. Because the woman paid an additional dollar for the Power Play option when she purchased the ticket, her prize was tripled from $50,000 to $150,000 when that number was a 3, according to the release.
The winning numbers from the July 12 drawing were 23, 35, 45, 66, 67 and Powerball: 20.
The convenience store received a commission of $1,500 for selling the claimed winning ticket, lottery officials said.
The next Powerball drawing will be held on Monday night, when a $145 million grand prize will be on the line.
The odds of winning the Powerball jackpot are 1-in-293 million.

Barnwell couldn’t stay out of its own way early Friday night, leading to a first-quarter deficit at Aiken High in a matchup of two football teams loaded with youth.
The Warhorses corrected themselves from there, stepping aside to allow themselves the opportunity to be successful. Aiken, on the other hand, continued to fight against a current it created until the very end.
Barnwell scored 26 consecutive points in a 26-12 win that is the Warhorses’ second in a row and third of the season, a no-pictures-on-the-scorecard kind of victory for Brian Smith, who in his first year at Barnwell is also the golf coach. Aiken is still searching for its first win under Dwayne Garrick.
“I felt good about us all night. I thought our kids were executing and playing well, but it was a couple mistakes here and there,” Smith said. “We came out in the second half and did some of the things that we do, and we didn’t beat Barnwell tonight. That’s the big thing is you can’t beat Barnwell. I’ve said it every week, we can’t beat ourselves. We’re still young, and we’re still learning. But our kids are fighting hard, and I love their effort. I love being around them, and I love coaching them every day.”
Barnwell (3-2) was quickly facing a 12-0 deficit after a rough start that included a three-and-out on the offense’s first possession, followed by a quick kickoff recovered by Aiken (0-5) after scoring 4:41 into the game.
Luke Jones put the Hornets on the board with a 1-yard touchdown run, and then Jahnari Mole ran in from 12 yards out as Aiken took advantage of the short field for a 12-0 lead with 4:15 left in the first quarter.
But that was all of the scoring for Aiken, as the Hornets’ remaining drives ended with either punts or turnovers.
“Got to keep grinding. Got to keep working, you know what I’m saying?,” Garrick said. “Got to keep trying to get a little better each week. We’re struggling up front, trying to run the ball and protect. If you’ve got one phase of the game, you can kind of sneak the other one in there a little bit. When you can’t do either one, and there’s where it all starts, and that’s where we’ve got to get better.
“We’ve got to get better in the weight room. We’re young, so it’s a combination of a lot of things. They’re pretty good kids, and they work pretty hard. We need time, you know what I mean? Time to try to get the process going and try to get a little better. Main thing is we’ve got to get stronger.”
Barnwell quarterback Cameron Austin started the game 0-for-6 passing - “with like eight drops,” Smith quipped - but heated up after a late hit on the Barnwell sideline following a 10-yard run. Austin completed four of his next five passes on the drive, the last one a 21-yard touchdown to Logan Sturkie with 8:04 left in the quarter to pull the Warhorses within 12-10.
Austin finished the game 9-for-18 for 100 yards, and he also ran it 14 times for 42 yards plus two successful two-point conversions. Sturkie was his top target, catching seven passes for 83 yards and the score. Jaquan and Jordan Peeples each rushed for 47 yards and a second-half touchdown as the Warhorses put the game away.
“We’re going to play every week as well as Cameron plays,” Smith said. “We call a bunch of pass plays, and with what we do there’s going to do some drops. It’s just like when you run the option back in the old days, the ball’s on the ground some. Well, we don’t want them, but you’re going to see them on Saturday and you’re going to see them on Sunday. Our kids know they’re going to work hard this week to get rid of that. We pride ourselves on that. It’s just our mistakes, and we’ve got to get better at it.”
Jones went 13-for-28 for 138 yards and two interceptions, one by Sturkie and one by Kahzeer Wesley, and several of his pass attempts went to receivers who weren’t looking for the ball. Mole was the Hornets’ leading rusher with 45 yards on 11 carries, but as a team Aiken rushed for just 85 yards on 30 attempts. Cam’ron Frazier was Aiken’s leading receiver with 58 yards on four catches.
“We got behind the chains a couple times. Whether it was getting hit in the end zone, or I think we had a bad snap or two,” Garrick said. “We’re not good enough to get 15 yards. It’s all we can do to get 10 yards. We definitely aren’t good enough to get 15 or 18, so we can’t play behind the chains. Outside of that, it is what it is. Just keep grinding. It’s a process, as much as I keep having to say that word. I get tired of saying that word, to tell you the truth.”
Friday night’s win was a third consecutive solid performance by the Barnwell defense, which wasn’t done any favors by the offense and special teams early.
“Our defense has fought hard. (Aiken) scored and they got the short field. Our defense is getting better and better,” Smith said. “There’s nobody starting on defense that started in the same spot last year. There’s a couple starters over there playing somewhere else. All them cats are new, and that’s what makes it great to come to work every day. Our kids are doing what they’re supposed to do. They’re working their tails off. Our coaches are working hard, too. I’m happy for our team. That’s a good win for us. We always need wins. We ain’t going to turn one away.”
Up next for Barnwell is a home game next Friday against arch-rival Silver Bluff to finish off the non-region part of the schedule. Aiken is off next week, then begins Region 4-AAAA play Sept. 29 at home against Airport.

A South Carolina honor roll student says that she was assaulted by a teacher and pushed up against a wall because she didn’t recite the Pledge of Allegiance.
Marissa Barnwell, 15, says that River Bluff High School teacher Nicole Livingston assaulted her in late November in an apparent attempt to stop the student from walking in the hallway as the Pledge of Allegiance was recited over the school loudspeakers.
Although Barnwell was walking “silently in a non-disruptive manner to her class” during the Pledge of Allegiance, teacher Nicole Livingston allegedly accosted her by “yelling and demanding that M.B. stop walking and physically assaulting her by pushing M.B., on the wall and forcefully touching M.B., in an unwanted way without her consent so that she would stop walking in recognition of the Pledge of Allegiance and Moment of Silence that was announced at the conclusion of the Pledge,” according to a lawsuit filed in February.
Barnwell has publicly acknowledged that she is the student in the lawsuit, although the complaint refers to her by her initials only, as she is a minor.
According to the complaint, Livingston then took Barnwell to school principal Jacob Smith’s office.
“M.B. was extremely upset and emotionally disturbed about being taken to the principal’s office as she believed she was being punished for having done something wrong,” the complaint says.
Smith allegedly told Barnwell that he would review surveillance footage from the incident and sent her back to class. According to the lawsuit, the principal “never informed M.B., that she was exempt from participating in the Pledge of Allegiance and should not be penalized for failing to participate.”
The complaint notes that River Bluff High School policy mandates that “all students say the Pledge of Allegiance at a time approximately around 8:40 a.m.,” in accordance with state law — but that state law also says that anyone who doesn’t want to participate is “exempt from participation and may not be penalized for failing to participate.”
The lawsuit also notes that Supreme Court rulings have “made it clear” that the First Amendment “forbids compelling saluting or pledging allegiance to the flag,” although not all teachers appear to understand this. South Carolina law allows a person who doesn’t want to participate in the Pledge of Allegiance to leave the classroom, remain in their seat, or “express his nonparticipation in any form which does not materially infringe upon the rights of other persons or disrupt school activities.”
Barnwell’s parents, Fynale and Shavell Barnwell, have sued Livingston, Smith, the Lexington School District One, and the district superintendent on their daughter’s behalf. They allege negligence, reckless infliction of emotional distress, violations of Fourteenth Amendment Equal Protection guarantees, and First Amendment Free Speech violations.
At a press conference on Thursday, Barnwell said that prior to the alleged altercation, she had never met Livingston.
“I had never seen this lady a day in my life, so when she approached me so angry and upset, I had not known how to react to her,” Barnwell said. “She approached me, she grabbed me, she pushed me up against the wall. I was just not prepared for that.”
Barnwell said that Smith, the principal, appeared to take the teacher’s side.
“He’s just like, ‘Shouldn’t you be proud of your country?'” Barnwell recalled.
The student said that it’s “emotionally damaging and mentally damaging” to have to see Livingston in the hallways at school and that she believes that “people at my school do not make me feel like I belong, make me feel like I’m safe.”
Barnwell said that she hasn’t recited the Pledge of Allegiance in years.
“I haven’t said any of those things since the third grade, once I realized that in those pledges you say ‘liberty and justice for all,'” Barnwell said at the press conference. “Is America really liberty and justice for all? After that I just realized I’m just not going to say this Pledge of Allegiance anymore.”
Barnwell noted that Livingston is a “special needs instructor” at the school, which is confirmed on the school’s website.
“The fact that she had the will to do this to me, I cannot imagine what she is doing to the special needs students who can’t even speak up for themselves,” Barnwell said.
Barnwell’s parents are seeking an undetermined amount of compensatory and punitive damages.
The South Carolina Department of Education filed a motion Friday to be dismissed from the case, arguing that the complaint didn’t sufficiently explain why the department is involved.
“[T]he Complaint does not affirmatively allege that any of the three named individual Defendants were employed by this Defendant, nor acting on behalf of the Department,” the motion to dismiss says (citations omitted). “Nor does the Complaint name any individuals who were actually acting as employees or agents of the Department for which the Department [is liable], nor any factual basis explaining why the Department is even a named Defendant in this suit.”
“[N]or are there any fact-based allegations made against the Defendant Department individually,” the complaint adds.
Barnwell’s lawyer told Law&Crime that he expects to prevail in court.
“I’m not surprised that the S.C. Dept. of Education is seeking to avoid accountability,” attorney Tyler Bailey said in an email. “All of the powers that be have attempted to ignore Marissa’s constitutional rights since the day her rights were violated. We will address their motion to dismiss in a filing later this month and we’re confident that the court will rule on the side of justice in Marissa’s favor.”
A representative for the Lexington School District One told Law&Crime that the attorney representing the district is working on a response to the lawsuit at this time. Citing the “ongoing legal matter,” the school declined to comment further. It is unclear if Livingston and Smith have retained attorneys.

BARNWELL — A pledge made as freshmen came true Wednesday morning for four seniors from Barnwell High School’s powerhouse football program.
Team captains Jaden James, Maurice Odom, Clay Pender and Tyler Smith dreamed of the moment when they would sign to play college football - and they dreamed of doing it together. They did that Wednesday in the school gymnasium.
The linebacker duo of James and Odom will remain together at Limestone, Pender will reunite with older brother Craig at Erskine, and Smith will continue a family tradition by heading to South Carolina State.
For James, Limestone offered an opportunity to grow not just as a player but also as an individual, plus the chance to build bonds like the ones he’s forged in high school.
James has done a bit of everything for the Warhorses, bringing his high-intensity playing style to the outside linebacker, tight end and H-back positions while also contributing on special teams. An All-State selection and the Region 6-AA H-back of the Year, James accounted for 100 tackles (eight for loss), 51 assists and five sacks as a senior.
He intends to study sports management at Limestone, where he and Odom will be able to lean on each other academically and athletically as they continue on as teammates.
“I mean, that’s my boy for sure,” James said. “It’s going to be us conquering another level.”
Odom echoed those sentiments, asserting that together they’re going to make something happen at Limestone. He said that signing felt like a weight lifted off his shoulders as years of hard work turned into a chance to play at the next level.
“As a kid, I dreamed of this,” he said. “As kids we all dreamed of this, playing football in the backyard. Going to the next level, going to college, going to the NFL.”
A National Honor Society and Beta Club member, Odom will study nursing in college. He said Limestone simply felt like home, and the Saints’ desire to win mirrored his own.
Like James, Odom has stood out as a high-energy talent for the Warhorses at inside linebacker, tight end, H-back and on special teams. The Region 6-AA Linebacker of the Year and an All-State selection, Odom is also a finalist for Aiken Standard Defensive Player of the Year after accounting for 124 tackles (eight for loss), five forced fumbles, three sacks and three blocked field goals.
Pender truly did do it all for Barnwell, earning All-State honors at multiple positions throughout his high school career. He starred at wide receiver and defensive back, handled kicking duties and was the backup quarterback when the Warhorses went into the Wishbone, and he proved to be a threat to score any time the ball was in his hands.
He’ll play wide receiver at Erskine, though he said he told the Flying Fleet coaching staff that he’s willing to line up wherever to make plays. He felt like he had more of an influence on his brother transferring back to Erskine than Craig did on him to sign there, and they’ll have the opportunity to be teammates again rather than adversaries.
“Maybe if I was playing DB so I could pick him off or something,” he said with a laugh. “If I was playing wide receiver somewhere else, I would just have to watch him throw touchdowns. That would’ve been a little disappointing.”
Pender, like Odom a member of the National Honor Society and Beta Club, is leaning toward studying sports management.
The Region 6-AA Wide Receiver of the Year, he averaged 19 yards per catch and had 736 yards and 12 touchdowns on 37 total touches. At defensive back, he had 10 career interceptions, and as a sophomore he was the Region Specialist of the Year.
Smith has done nothing but set the bar for himself higher over the course of the last two seasons, and each time the Warhorses’ star running back cleared that bar with room to spare - he is the reigning Class AA state champion in the high jump, after all.
One of seven seniors chosen as a finalist for the state’s coveted Mr. Football award, Smith is joining the tradition-rich program at South Carolina State while also continuing a proud family tradition of attending the school. He intends to study athletic training.
The numbers speak for themselves. As a senior he rushed for 2,903 yards and 46 touchdowns, bringing his two-year totals to 5,054 and 74 scores. He’s ranked among the nation’s top backs in terms of yardage and touchdowns, and with those numbers has come a lot of recognition.
In addition to being named a Mr. Football finalist, he’s been a multi-time All-Region performer in basketball, football and track - twice an All-State pick in the latter two. He was named a North-South all-star, the Region 6-AA Player of the Year, the Class AA Lower State Offensive Player of the Year and is again a finalist for Aiken Standard Offensive Player of the Year.
“Crazy. Crazy, just shocking,” he said. “A guy like me from a small-town school like this right here, I never thought I’d be in that situation. That’s all I can say.”
This group helped lead Barnwell to an undefeated regular season as seniors, and the year before they reached the state semifinals.
“I’m happy for them. Happy for the families. Not happy for me, because they’re gone,” said Barnwell head coach Dwayne Garrick. “They’ve been the core and the nucleus of this program for the last three years, especially. Great football players. Did what they had to academically to give themselves a chance to be successful. Kind of sad to see them go, but at the same time happy for them. Happy for them for the next four or five years in their lives, and the doors that this is going to open for them to be successful.
