Are you a recently engaged couple looking for the perfect rural Connecticut venue, look no further than Smith Farm Gardens! We recently had the pleasure of exploring this gorgeous venue and we could not have been more in love. This estate is located in the heart of Cockaponset state forest with sprawling fields of greenery.

Built in 1778, the Smith Farm property was used as a small family farm. After the property fell into disrepair Mal and Peggy, the new owners of the property returned the property to the fully functioning organic farm and orchard it is today. The estate offers its a guest on-site accommodations in the main house with original chestnut and oak flooring, original artwork and an assortment of antiques and many other unique aspects to the home. The property offers its wedding guests a venue space for up to 250 guests, multiple locations for your ceremony and plenty of space to customize your wedding day. They even offer a mint condition 1954 yellow chevy pickup truck!

We can’t wait to get back to this space to host your next event with you!

We are so excited to announce Katherine and Eric’s wedding was featured on Carats & Cake!! Katherine and Eric’s dream wedding had always involved Saltwater Farm Vineyard. After moving to California, Katherine had always imagined heading back to the East Coast for her big day. Being from New England there was nothing more magical than getting married close to home with family and friends at their side.

True Event worked with Katherine and her mother to incorporate the blue from the bright blue skies and natural tones of the vineyard with tuscan blue linens, touches of silver in the center pieces, set plate and silver flatware. Hana Floral incorporated light touches of garden roses, anemones, thistle and greenery to pick up the aesthetics of the vineyards.

Katherine and Eric chose to say their vows out on the vineyard’s lawn overlooking fields of grapes, as guests enjoyed the sun shine and the beautiful summer day. Once the ceremony was over they headed to the vineyards patio, where Gourmet Galley served artisanal cheeses and signature drinks. Cocktail hour ended and guests moved inside to enjoy each others company and dine on a gourmet meal. After dinner Murray Hill Talent got the party started with their talented band and rocked the night away.

We are so excited to announce Ariel and Ben’s wedding featured on Over the Moon!

Ariel and Ben were married at the historic mansion, Rosecliff, set on the cliffs of Newport, RI. Ariel had always imaged herself getting married at her favorite childhood destination of Palm Beach, but when they found out two of the most important guests were pregnant they decided to keep their wedding a bit more local. The couple being from New York City, thought Newport with its quant charm, and short distance from the city would be the perfect alternative.

The ceremony took place in the mansions salon with the aisle gently candlelit, giving the space a romantic element for the couple to say their i do’s. After the ceremony guests made their way to the mansions elegant stone terrace, boasting with stationary food displays, including a raw bar from McGrath’s Clambakes and an Asian inspired station provided by Blackstone Catering. As guests enjoy their light bites, they sipped on champagne infused with Rosemary as a nod to the mansions 1920’s history.

Stoneblossom worked effortlessly to bring Ariel’s vision for the reception space to life. Tall floral center pieces added dramatic affect to the round guests tables that surrounded the tuscan style head table in the center of the mansion’s ballroom. The wedding party all dined together at the tuscan table with a floral runner down the center of it. Ariel chose to incorporate a modern aspect in to the design of the place setting with the heirloom smoke chargers from Peak. The gold arrezo flatware added an aspect of traditional elegance to the setting, along with light blue hemstitched napkin, found by Ariel herself. Guests hit the dance floor to the ever so talented Stardust Band after they enjoyed a delicious two course meal from Blackstone Catering.

It was such pleasure working with Ariel and Ben to plan their elegant mansion wedding! Be sure to check out their full wedding onOver the Moon!

We are so honored to share that Laura and Derek’s wedding was featured on Style Me Pretty

The Bedford Post Inn is one of those idyllic inns that only most dream of getting married at. For Laura and Derek, their dream fall wedding was perfectly nestled at the cozy country side inn. During their tour of the inn they realized this cozy space would be the perfect spot to say their vows. Luckily for Laura and Derek, Bedford Post was just the right size to host their wedding party and family members. The bridal party gathered together on the big day to pamper themselves as they prepared Laura to walk down the aisle.

The design for the evening was classic elegance. Pillar candles and hurricanes, the dining room of the Bedford Post Inn was romantically lit for the intimate evening ahead. Using white linen runners and simple white rim plates, the guests tables set the stage for a simple and elegant reception. Guests dined at gorgeous deep wooden farm tables with contrasting antique crossback chairs.  Hana Floral Design incorporated elegant but simple pops of autumn colors into the evening. 

After a decedent meal from the Bedford Post Inn, guests headed out to the Stamford Tent to witness the couple’s special first dance. To end the evening guests enjoyed homemade chocolate chip cookies baked by Laura herself!
