We've missed the Smithville Inn! This colonial building is a diamond for couples searching for a venue with some rustic character. Originally built in 1787, it is authentically historic, giving guests a step back in time as they celebrated the love between Amanda and Sean.
The most popular approach for floral design at the Smithville Inn has been chalked full of rustic charm and touches of vintage romance. With weathered wood and rusty antiques, we try to make the flowers as vibrant and lush as we can to create a balance between the elements.
Amanda and Sean's wedding was a homerun in our book - their old school glamour made their day one to remember. It didn't hurt that everyone attending could walk the runways during fashion week - these images from Lurey Photography are sure to show the beauty found in both the decor and the people.

Creating a beautiful placecard table is just another way to honor the loved friends and family coming for your wedding day.
