    The Smithville Inn was perfect!

    My husband and I chose the Smithville Inn to have our ceremony and reception and we couldn't be happier with how everything went! The location is amazing for pictures and guests. Most of our guests stayed at the colonial Inn which was situated in the quaint village of Smithville and is within walking distance to everything! From the moment we started planning Kyle and Justine were amazing with gathering information on our plans for the wedding down to every detail! The ceremony was outside right next to the lake which was a beautiful setting. The reception was in a beautiful room that fit all 123 guests comfortably and our 7 piece band. The food was delicious and was made to order for everyone. Everyone complimented us on the food and the venue! I would 100% recommend this for anyone looking for a wedding venue!

    So in love with the Smithville Inn

    We had our wedding here on August 3rd and it was beyond my wildest dreams. We chose the smithville inn because we loved the classic and historic feel. We wanted something rustic but not over the top rustic and still classy and this was just it. We couldn't be happier with our decision. Kyle and Justine as well as the rest of the team are incredible at their jobs and made sure that everything was perfect the day of. They were always happy to answer any questions I had a long the way. They did an amazing job bringing all of my visions to life. Everything that I wanted to be displayed at the wedding looked even better than I had pictured. The day of the wedding they were extremely accommodating. My husband and I did not plan to miss our cocktail hour but ran behind on some photos and they made sure that we had all the food that we wanted in the bridal suite. At the reception I felt like having pasta, which was not a meal selection that I had chosen and they made me a plate! They truly treated us like kings and queens that day. Food is amazing, board walk station blew people's minds, and my guests keep raving about how fun it was. We had about 158 guests and the room felt very full. They say that they can fit up to 171 but I think that might be stretching it a little unless you have a lot of children coming to the wedding, which we did not. Aside from that, our guests booked up the colonial inn and we took up the entire Smithville Village. The guests keep saying how much they loved it there and want to come back! I highly recommend having your wedding at the Smithville Inn.
