    Smithville Inn

    Our wedding day was everything my husband and I hoped it would be and more. We knew from our very first visit to Smithville Inn that this was exactly where we were meant to get married. Smithville was absolutely beautiful. We loved going through the town for pictures with our bridal party and the ceremony space outside overlooking the pond was gorgeous. We had guests commenting on how beautiful the ceremony and reception spaces were throughout the entire night. I could go on and on about how amazing everything looked but I will sum it up by saying that everything just looked perfect. But the beauty of the venue is not the only reason we were so happy with our decision to book Smithville Inn; their staff was amazing too. From our very first interaction to our last dance and everything in between, their staff went above and beyond to make sure we had the wedding day of our dreams. The staff was extremely accommodating and kept us updated during COVID about any changes that were occurring due to the pandemic. They helped make such a stressful planning process feel more manageable and we felt confident that no matter what happened because of the pandemic that Smithville Inn was going to help us navigate our way and still have a beautiful day… and we certainly did! Their vendor recommendations were spot on and we are so glad we used their vendor list to make our selections. My husband and I worked most closely with Justine throughout the process and she was wonderful. Justine was very easy to get in contact with whenever we had questions and extremely helpful. We can’t thank her enough for all of her help! You cannot go wrong booking at Smithville Inn!

    Amazing Wedding 03.27.21

    My husband and I chose The Smithville Inn as our venue for our wedding ceremony and reception (which took place on 03.27.21) and oh boy did we choose wisely. First, the venue is GORGEOUS! My husband and I didn’t want to get married in the usual banquet hall and this was such a nice change – the perfect setting located in a quaint/cute village with a bunch of small shops (made for the perfect wedding weekend). Second, Justine and Erin helped make our day truly incredible. I tear up just thinking about how perfect everything was. From start to finish, Justine and Erin were very detail-oriented, they took the time to listen to what we wanted, and they made zero mistakes along the way. I wish I could be stuck in a time loop for that day so I could relive it over and over again. Not only did my husband and I love it, but our guests raved about the venue and how beautiful everything was. We couldn’t be more grateful – THANK YOU!!!!
