This venue is absolutely beautiful. Tammy was extremely helpful the day of the wedding, and was very responsive to calls and texts.
If you're looking for a barn wedding this is definitely the place to book. It was just amazing.

My husband and I were married on 11/4 at the Smith Barn and we could NOT be more thrilled with how our day went! Tammy Messina is incredible. She checked in with me constantly to make sure I had everything I needed, and she worked with my vendors all day so that I could focus on my husband and our guests. I am the type of person to stress and worry about everything, and I have never felt more laid back than I did on our wedding day! Tammy was there any time I needed something (even a glass of wine!), and put me completely at ease. The Barn itself was gorgeous. I was concerned about not having much foliage in early November, but we had absolutely the most gorgeous day. I would recommend the Smith Barn as a venue for anyone looking for an alternative to a ballroom!!! I would just add, couples need to book FAR in advance. We booked in June 2015, and they only had 3 dates to choose from. As I understand it now, they are entirely booked for 2017 and are currently booking for 18 and 19 right now.

My husband and I had the best experience with Smith Barn. Tammy is absolutely amazing. I have no idea how she is so calm and organize with all of the vendors and planning a wedding takes. She called me weeks before my wedding finalizing everything and answering every question. If I texted her she got back to me the next day. On the day of I got out of the limo and there she was ready to grab my dress and get me ready to walk down the aisle. She was amazing during the reception, she even hunted down my friend who knew how to bustle my dress. Love her. Also, Smith Barn is so beautiful! My guests had so many great things to say about the location! I wish I could go back and relive it all again!

We had an amazing wedding at the Smith Barn. It was everything we wanted in terms of a rustic feel, while still being gorgeous and formal enough for an evening wedding. It was also really convenient for our guests to get to. Tammy was easy to work with - very responsive by phone and willing to answer any question you might have. I didn't feel over-managed at all leading up to the wedding, but on the day of, Tammy was there for any support we needed. We got so many compliments on the venue and we are so excited to see our photos!

I went to a wedding at Smith Barn 6 years ago and from the moment I walked in I knew that was where I wanted to get married one day. Well that day came on 9/16/16 and it was everything I could have imagined! Tammy was very helpful in recommending other vendors and helping out on the day of the wedding making sure everything went smoothly. The barn is so beautiful and exactly what I was hoping for for our rustic themed wedding. We have received so many compliments on how nice it was and would highly recommend Smith Barn to anyone who wants a perfect country wedding.

The best review I read that helped us a lot with deciding on Smith Barn. The review was that Tammy who runs the barn is amazing day of the reception, leading up to the event Tammy isn't that friendly/helpful to deal with. For us this didn't matter because we read this in a review and we were prepared for it. Tammy is not a wedding planner and the barn is the barn there is not much she can answer/do about your wedding. Your caterer does the work and can/will answer your questions. Tammy is there to make sure that the historical barn does not get ruined and help make everything run smoothly day of. I have no complaints about Tammy she was great to us, especially day of offering drinks and helping with entrances, etc. I feel that reading that review prepped us for not needing to bother Tammy, use your caterer. The barn was AMAZING we got married end of August which was scary because of the possibility of hot humid day with no AC or a rainy day being stuck inside. Luckily we had the first weekend in August this year that was not disgustingly hot. Everyone was comfortable, the sunset and views were beautiful. The guests were in awe how beautiful the barn was inside and out. I highly recommend Tammy & Smith Barn for your wedding, go into it with the above information and that if it is hot, cold, raining you will have to deal with it...its a barn.

This was our dream venue and even though it took some imagination to get my now husband and family on board after only seeing it in the dead of winter and undecorated everyone now says it was like a fairytale. Tammy is wonderful, all day she was checking in to see what we needed, waters or lip gloss during pictures, extra food at dinner, or anything else. She was attentive through the entire process, she always said she was only a phone call or a text away and she truly was and responded within hours. Tammy knows the venue and is honest about what she knows will work to make your day flow perfectly. The barn is beautiful and needs very little decoration because it is beautiful on its own. The surrounding grounds made our pictures better than I could ever have dreamed.

If you are looking for an place where the service is perfect go here and see Tammy. She was so amazing only downfall she doesn't have an email but when you call her she always answers, so it wasn't a problem at all. Tammy controlled the night so perfectly I didn't have to worry about anything. I would recommend the barn to anyone looking for a beautiful rustic place to have their reception. It was like a fairy tale wedding!!

We had our ceremony in the Woodland Gardens and reception at the Smith Barn on May 7, 2016 and we couldn't have picked a more perfect place. We got so many compliments on the venue itself and how amazing it looked. Tammy the site coordinator was extremely responsive to all my questions and was amazing on that day letting us know what to do and keeping things in order. Such a beautiful and laid back venue to have a wedding.

Smith Barn was magical! Even the undecorated barn was so unique looking and even better once the holiday lights are turned on. It held our 210 guest wedding without fail and nobody ever felt crammed. The only complaint was the small bar has a tendency to back up quickly due to it being sort of tucked away, but it's made up for by very affordable drinks. Note also that it is only a cash bar, but there is an ATM accessible in the kitchen. If you're looking for a rustic barn wedding that's easy to get to and affordable, definitely check out SmithBarn! But do it soon because there is probably over a year and a half wait.
