  • Rustic, Classy, shabby chic, burlap... Outdoor ceremony with beautiful oaks, emaculate landscaping, wooden arbor with white curtains, large white pillars lining ceremony area, white chairs, shepherds hooks, mason jars, burlap aisle runner, rustic signs..... Beautiful!!!
  • Exceeded all of my expectations! Jeanette was available to meet with me whenever I needed as my work schedule is crazy. She and her entire crew were able to adapt to every situation/need/want that came up... From taking a bucket of fresh leftover flowers I had from my bouquets and using them on the tables for reception, to having pins available for an unplanned money dance, to making sure we left with a massive plate of food since we didnt eat much at the reception. A crew member was at my side all night long to do any "running" or tasks that I needed. They pinned on boutineres, delivered my rings to the best man for ceremony (I had to have them for my bridal pics prior to the ceremony), and did countless other tasks that I didn't think about until the last minute and couldn't have done myself.
  • Yes we had both ceremony and reception there. It was wonderful. All of my friends have told me "I've never been to such a fun wedding!" We danced the night away, were able to line up in a recieving line and greet all my guests as they exited ceremony and went to reception, didn't need to rush from site to site, and got some amazingly beautiful photos. My guests raved about the food which Jeanette makes on site and is all fresh. My husband and myself ate so much when we got home that night that we could barely hold our eyes open! It's is absolutely delicious food and has a fine dining feel, at one of the best catering prices I found. We had no complaints and could not be happier!
  • My favorite part?... There are so many!! First, I would say the pure beauty of the place. It could have had any food and any service, and I would have still fell in love with the beauty of the house, garden, pavilion, pergola, and landscaping on which Jeanette and Clint have worked so hard. But that leads me to my second favorite part... The owners. These guys (I spent more time with Jeanette but Clint kept my husband occupied as they both are avid carpenters &DIY-ers; and he gave us some good vacation pointers for the honeymoon) are absolutely amazing! Weddings are their passio and it shows! I went from having no idea what I wanted as the theme or decor to having a perfectly planned setup by talking to and recieving guidance from Jeanette. Any question I had-even the ones I thought were silly- she could answer. She took all of my visions and ideas and made them happen! I am a strong Type A personality who likes to plan and research and control every aspect of my life. I also like to make most things my self- I love a good project around the house, and my wedding was no different. At the last minute, after being up till 3 am making my own bouquets, I was exhausted and overwhelmed. I dropped everything off to Jeanette that morning, and went off to the salon. As I handed off my decorations, blood, sweat, and tears, I felt at peace with it all. If I would have had our wedding anywhere else, I would not have been able to leave without putting everything out myself. But Jeanette was so relaxed, confident, experienced, and brilliant, I left and went to the salon with absolutely no worries in the world. When I returned, she had the venue absolutely breathtaking! The owners are without a doubt the highlight of this venue!!! The food is also amazing. I have absolutely no idea how she was able to prepare such great food and also prepare the venue, but she is my HERO! I have no complaints at all.

  • What was your wedding theme? Décor? Setting? burlap, lace and pearls with a rustic/vintage feel
  • Flexibility of venue to meet your needs? very flexible. The owners of The Henry Smith House are very professional and go out their way to make accommodations to fit the needs of the guest.
  • Have both your reception and ceremony there? If so, make for a happy couple & guests? most definitely! My husband and I both can not stop reliving our wonderful experience of our wedding and reception at the Henry Smith House!
  • Favorite part of the venue? The gorgeous scene of the ceremony area- beautiful oak trees and pretty scrubs and garden area make for a breathtakingly gorgeous wedding. Then there is the beautiful reception area with pretty lights and water fountains. And then there is the food (which is cooked on site- nothing comes from the freezer!). The food is mouth watering just thinking about it! A brand new bridal room was built on site for the bridesmaids to get ready in and it was very cute, with decorations and vintage furniture. The staff went above and beyond to make myself (the bride) have the most peaceful experience on my wedding day; but they didn't stop at just my needs, they attended to ALL the needs of my bridal party and then some. (For instance, a bridesmaid needed Tylenol, they were on it within minutes. A 3 year old boy that is very sensitive to noise was not a fan of the band, and when they saw he was hiding from the band and covering his ears, they gave him ear buds, and soon after, that same little 3 year old boy was dancing with his aunt (the bride) on the dance floor, which was right by the band. Overall, I cant say which is my favorite part of the venue, cause all of it was my favorite! :) The Henry Smith House gets an A+ on every category!
