    What an amazing venue alongside an amazing family that runs the show. A venue like no other, our guests raved about the house, the grounds, and how beautiful everything was.

    Perfect Venue for Wedding Weekend

    We had a pretty solid idea of how we wanted to get married and what we wanted the event to be like (upscale house party, haha), and we definitely wanted to be able to stay on site and host the rehearsal dinner, ceremony, and reception all in the same area. This estate checked all the boxes and then some.
    Our wedding was definitely a smaller one with a total of just around 50 people, and we were finding that so many venues would make our party look empty because they were just too large to fill. And while Smith Farm Gardens can accommodate a large group, our small group fit just fine too! Travis is super responsive and helpful. The house itself is a living museum and is beyond beautiful. The grounds are very well-maintained and they seem to be making upgrades to it all the time.

    Garden Wedding Weekend

    If I could give 20 stars I would. Smith Farm Gardens was the most perfect place for our wedding - we chose it because we wanted a venue to stay the weekend at. Travis and Peggy were UNBELIEVABLY responsive, kind, and accommodating. If you are thinking about booking, DO IT!!

    The house is stunning and meticulously cared for, with every amenity we could possibly need. Our wedding party stayed for the whole weekend and we hosted our rehearsal Friday night. The kitchen was huge and perfect for prep, the house has a sound system through the inside and outside that was easy to use, and the bedrooms were clean and comfortable (if lacking a little in privacy but hey it’s a party!). A major plus was the giant bridal suite which gave us a spot to get ready with every detail covered - champagne fridge included!

    The gardens are to die for and the whole property is beautiful - fire pit for your guests, patios and furniture, several ceremony locations, an orchard, walking paths, and stunning gardens. We had a tent set up just next to the house. There are even brand new trailer restrooms for guests that are nicer quality than some hotels.

    Beginning to end, this place is fantastic and we are so grateful that Peggy and Travis shared their beautiful home with us. I can’t say enough good things. BOOK A TOUR!!
