    A magical location

    Smith Farm Gardens could not have been more perfect for our special day! Peggy and Travis were east to work with, and clearly take pride in the house, their property, and the events they have there. We were able to do several site visits, with family and vendors prior to the event. And the wedding day could not have been more perfect! The gardens are so beautiful and you really don't need to do much to make them work for your wedding. The bridal suite was perfect for getting ready. There were more photo opps than we could take advantage of! Everything was easy and seamless and beautiful. Highly, highly recommend!

    Get married here!

    TL, DR: This place was absolutely perfect for our wedding and I can't recommend it enough.

    We just had our wedding at this venue last weekend. It was perfect. I've been planning my wedding for over a year from Los Angeles and had to do everything via email. Nothing about Smith Farms disappointed when I finally saw it in person.

    The planning process was so simple. Peggy and her son, Travis, run point on that and both are very responsive to email. Every time I had a question or request, they got back to me quickly and were accommodating. (Need to change your rehearsal time? No problem. Need to drop something off early? Sure!)

    Peggy takes incredible pride in her home and every tiny corner was impeccably prepared. To say the home and grounds are stunning is an understatement. I will never forget peeking out the window of the bridal suite just an hour before the ceremony and seeing Peggy making sure every tiny stick was removed from the area I'd walk through!

    Speaking of the bridal suite... SO perfect. The house is huge. The guys dressed on one side of the house and the ladies took over another. We had music running through the awesome sound system and sipped champagne from the bridal refrigerator. Seriously, EVERYTHING was thought off!

    During the evening, Travis ran the firepit where everyone gathered when they needed a break from dancing. We rented the house for the night of the wedding and the following night, which I would highly recommend. The next morning, we had a lazy, unrushed time getting up and enjoying breakfast. Then throughout the day, our family and friends rejoined us for a bit of an informal reception. We played the lawn games that the property provides and wandered the gorgeous gardens and orchard.

    Peggy stays on the property during rentals and was totally out of sight. Honestly, I found it kind of comforting, with a property that old and huge, that someone knowledgeable was available if we had a pressing question. This place has been her family's home forever and yet she's willing to open it up and share it with others without hovering or being overprotective. I couldn't do that if I had a place this stunning!

    I could go on for hours about this incredible weekend, but I'll stop. The guests couldn't stop talking about the venue. The ability to rent it for the entire weekend gave us a slow-paced, relaxed event. We're already joking about how we want to rent it again for a five-year reunion. Ugh, I miss it there!

    Perfect place

    We loved our venue! Nestled in the back roads of East Haddam, Smith Farm Gardens offered a beautiful, big space that met our needs perfectly. We loved that there was plenty of room for a tent as well as lawn games, a separate space for cocktail hour, a fire pit, and larger grounds to wander on. The house was also a perfect and charming home base for getting ready. Peggy and Travis were a pleasure to work with, and added thoughtful touches for us like flowers from their garden for our rented outdoor bathroom. We loved learning about all of the programs the grounds are used for during the day, and even enjoyed some vegetables from their farmstand in the days leading up to the event. This is a great venue; we’d highly recommend it!
