All of my dreams came true on 6/16/18 when my husband and I were married at the Smithville Inn. We have been going to the town of Smithville for years, and on the night of our engagement, we didn't even hesitate that our dream wedding would be at The Smithville Inn- with one venue visit, we were booked! They book up early, we booked 18 months in advance and scored the last weekend in June - so do not hesitate and book your spot with them. Kyle and Justine made the entire planning process easy. Every email is answered in a timely manner, no question is too big or too small. They answer everything,and fast! You are in the BEST hands with Kyle and Justine. Every appointment at the venue was quick and painless, you can tell they work as a well-oiled machine. With all of the weddings they do, they treat you like you are the only wedding that matters when you are with them! Our wedding weekend, both Kyle and Justine were cool, calm and collected. Every detail I thought about meticulously for months came to life with their creativity. I never felt so calm leaving all of my wedding decor in their hands the morning of my wedding. It was an absolute dream walking into the venue and seeing everything come to life! Justine even took cocktail hour decor and took it upon herself to reuse all of it and decorate a hutch in the reception area! I love that they reused everything; even our welcome sign from the ceremony ended up being reused! I LOVE that they did that. They even caught some minor errors I made and asked me about them the morning of, and I never ever would have caught them (the menu I printed was in the wrong order so they wanted to verify the order I wanted the food to come out in). My family cannot stop raving about the venue, the service, and the food. If we could do it all over, we would choose the smithville over and over and over again. We are so lucky! We love you guys!

We had our wedding at Smithville in April 2018, and we absolutely loved it. Everything was so easy and great, and we are very happy that we went with Smithville. Kyle and Justine are great and really did a great job executing our wedding.
