    The most beautiful venue!

    We had our wedding at Smith Farm Gardens in July of 2019, and it was the absolute perfect venue. Travis and Peggy were so accommodating, laid back, and helpful, and made working with them so simple. They did everything they could to make sure our day was perfect. The grounds are so beautiful, and they were able to accommodate everything our wedding needed. We had a large tent that was put up in the open field, and the extensive grounds made it easy for guests to spread out and enjoy the beautiful areas. We stayed at the house both the night before the wedding and the wedding night, and got ready for the wedding right at the house. The huge bridal suite and attached room perfectly fit myself and 6 bridesmaids getting hair and makeup done, but also having a place to hang out that morning. Our photographer fell in love with the venue and all of it's scenic backgrounds for photographs. We got some beautiful pictures that we will treasure forever. We had an absolute blast and we are so thankful we chose Smith Farm Gardens for our wedding!

    Dream Come True

    A DREAM!!! After having to reschedule our wedding from October 2020, and finding a new venue 3 months before our postponed wedding date, Smith Farm Gardens was the absolute best to work with and I couldn't imagine our wedding any other way. The entire wedding weekend was beyond perfect. We hosted our Rehearsal Dinner on the property Friday night, followed by our ceremony & reception Saturday. Travis & Peggy were beyond accommodating and their property is just stunning. All of our guests could not stop commenting on how perfect the venue was. We stayed on property for two nights and the guest accommodations were so comfortable, spacious and had every amenity we could possibly need. The bridal suite was the perfect space for getting ready, fully equipped with closets, speakers, mini fridge for mimosas, bobby pins, chap stick, hair ties, EVERYTHING! We look forward to the opportunity to go back in the future.

    Schwarz Wedding

    Tyler and I couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful venue for our wedding this past weekend. Smith Farm Gardens is absolutely gorgeous, from the sunken gardens to the orchard, to the bon fire area and wooded trails. There are endless places to take pictures and mingle and our guests raved about the farmhouse, especially when it was lit up after sunset. Everyone dreamed of what it would be like to live there.

    Travis and his family went above and beyond to help make our day special. They were kind enough to store our dance floor in their garage when it arrived sooner than planned. Travis also performed acoustic music for our ceremony and cocktail hour and guests LOVED him! They are an amazing family who we can’t thank enough, especially for answering the endless amount of questions I had.

    I only have two really minor critiques which may help a future bride. We set up our welcome tables with programs, guest book etc. in a specific area that we assumed guests would walk by (near a parking lot entrance). We later found out that guests would be parking on the opposite side of the property and it was too late to move tables. So unfortunately everyone missed our programs and had to go back for the guestbook. My second critique is that we barely had cell reception in the upstairs bridal suite and I’m unsure if they would have provided a WiFi password. My advice would be scheduling a walk-through of the venue about a week out so all these minor issues can be worked out.

    Overall, I couldn’t recommend this venue more for anyone looking for a rustic yet elegant outdoor, New England wedding!
