    Gorgeous Venue

    We had our wedding at Smolak Farms on 10/02/2021 and it was absolutely gorgeous. Ashley is wonderful and so easy to work with and the whole venue looked so much better than i could have ever even hope for. Our guests raved about how pretty everything was and how well set up it was. Couldn't recommend them anymore!

    Perfect Outdoor Ceremony and Venue Site

    We were married on 10/19/19 at Smolak Farms and could not be happier with the entire experience. From the first day we met Ashley we felt like we made a new friend and could trust her to make our day perfect. She was very flexible, gave great advice when we needed it, and along with Meg and the rest of her team, took care of us from the first part of planning through the end of our reception and beyond. They also did an amazing job decorating for the ceremony and reception. Everything was exactly as we had hoped it would, beautiful, cozy, perfect! Thank you Ashley and Meg for giving us the best day of our lives!

    Expert, professional event planners

    We had a fantastic experience with Smolak. Ashley and her team are consummate professionals who ensured that the event went off without a hitch. We were consistently impressed by the hard working Smolak team, and of course the venue is gorgeous. The one thing to note is that you should make sure your DJ is aware that he has to use Smolaks sound system - some DJs get upset about that. However, when we ran into that problem, Ashley very quickly helped us to find another DJ who did an awesome job (DJ Thrilla, who I also highly recommend). No big event is going to go completely smoothly - but you want a team that’s got the experience and the professionalism to handle anything that happens. Ashley, Meg, and the Smolak staff exemplified that attitude and we were SO lucky to have them on our team throughout the wedding planning process and the day-of.

    Hi Rose!
    Thank you for the great review and kind words! I absolutely loved working with you and Brian, your mom too! You guys were fun, organized, and reasonable (unlike some DJ's - haha!). When you are visiting from DC I hope you will stop by to say hello. I would love to see you. If you want to share your pictures I would be thrilled to see them. Thanks again and I wish you the best!
    ~Ashley
