    Look No Further

    My wife and I were married at Smoke Rise Village Inn on 12.31.2018. The entire experience from start to finish was amazing. Three things stood out from the feedback our guests provided: 1) What a unique venue 2) What amazing food 3) The service was terrific.

    My wife desired a venue most guests wouldn't be familiar with and would be conducive to a smaller wedding (we had 100 guests and 200 is approximate capacity). I was familiar with Smoke Rise so I brought her to see the inn and it was love at first sight. It is intimate (one wedding at a time), definitely unique (it's an old converted dairy farm), and has lots of charm.

    In addition to the fine food and ambiance, one of its greatest attributes is the banquet manager, Kim Caputo. After five minutes of talking to her, it becomes crystal clear that she loves what she does and will treat your special day as if it's her own. From start to finish, Kim was there helping us map out the perfect party, offering useful suggestions, and always answering our questions promptly and accurately. She's a real pro and an amazing asset to the inn.

    I would strongly encourage anyone to look at Smoke Rise when deciding where to host their event. Our experience was first rate from start to finish and my wife and I cannot be happier. When you put so much time, money, and effort to throw the best party you can, the best reward, in my opinion, is the feedback from your guests. We have received nothing short of rave reviews and a number of our guests said it was the best wedding reception they've ever attended. We wouldn't haven't gotten such amazing feedback if Smoke Rise didn't deliver and they most certainly did. We can't wait to go back to celebrate our anniversary. Bravo!!!

    Amazing!!!

    We had our wedding yesterday and the reception was held at the Smoke Rise Village Inn. The venue itself is beautiful and cozy. Our guests kept asking us how we found this place and I always responded with Wedding Wire and how we knew this was the venue for us when we met with Kim for the first time. I heard nothing but amazing things from our guests the entire night about how beautiful everything was.

    Kim and her staff were nothing short of amazing! Kim worked with us for the past year as we finalized details and planned our special day. She was so sweet and made us feel like we were her own family. Last night her staff were so attentive to us and our guests. The food there is delicious and our guests couldn’t stop raving about how great everything tasted.

    Not only do we recommend Smoke Rise, we are excited that there is a restaurant that we can visit on occasion, including on our future wedding anniversaries to look back on the best day of our lives!
