The Smithview staff was very helpful throughout the entire process. They stayed in contact over the entire year between when I booked the venue and our wedding day. Lisa is very friendly and easy to talk to. This is a great local venue that values its clients.

My new husband and I had the best experience ever at Smithview Pavilion. Lisa Gibson was so nice and easy to work with. I don't have enough good words for our coordinator, Jessica, at the property. She went above and beyond to make sure everything was in place. I tried to... Read More arrange some things and she made it a point to let me know that she had everything taken care of.

Smithview was all I could wish for in a wedding venue and more! The staff is incredibly helpful and easy to speak with, quick to respond - especially Lisa! Beautiful venue and it absolutely met our checklist. The packages include so much, it is easily worth every penny!

Gorgeous Venue!

Smithview was AMAZING. Everyone commented on how amazing the property was. They were so great to work with and the Florist on site did an amazing job. It was so much more than I expected. They had someone there the entire day to help us! It was perfect and I would recommend it... Read More to every bride!

We had our wedding here and it was affordable. They provided the tables, chairs, tablecloths, a budget for flowers, a full kitchen, (with ice), a bridal room and plenty of parking. Lisa, the contact, was so easy to work with and was involved in making me feel comfortable.... Read More There are several places on the property to get married, it is an outdoor facility but it rained the day of the wedding and they set it up under the pavillion. It is most definately worth the price and it was absolutely beautiful.

Just what we wanted

We had a DIY wedding, so the gorgeous views and structure of this venue really added a lot and meant that I didn't need to add too many extra decorations. I love that even with the Bronze Package (the shortest length of time offered) we still received chairs, tables, linens,... Read More lanterns to decorate with, floral centerpieces, and one person from the venue to help out on the day of the wedding. I was SO GLAD to have her (I think her name was Brandy?). As we were setting up that morning we realized I had not made enough decorations and we were running late...but I had extra materials and she offered to help so that I could get ready. She also helped out in the kitchen, and when we changed our mind about the setup of the chairs and tables she helped with that too. This was a fantastic experience from start to finish, and I am truly grateful to everyone at Smithview for making this experience as smooth as planning a wedding could possibly be.

Best Place to Get Married

Reviewed on 6/29/2011 Amanda M

When we found a church in Maryville to get married, we began our search for a venue that was reasonably priced, and allowed us "free reign" as to the caterer, DJ, etc. we wanted. So many places had long lists of restrictions! And then we found Smithview. This is no ordinary... Read More Pavilion - It's absolutely gorgeous! High ceilings, stone fireplace, full kitchen, extremely spacious, and sitting on a beautiful piece of land. The packages were extremely reasonable, and even had tables and chairs (and more) included! Great people to work with - they even helped set up equipment the day of!

This location is really beautiful and everything looks new. They keep very good care of it. The people were very helpful with anything I asked of them. One thing I think could be better is that they dont offer you a time to do a rehearsal. Also, they give you the choice to have...
