Smith Barn at Brooksby Farm Wedding | Bobby & Alexis | 06.26.11


Bobby and Alexis' Vendors:

We went with a mood, which was for a romantic, relaxed, yet fun atmosphere in choosing our wedding venue. The farm was unique to us and we felt it would be a beautiful setting for a summer wedding. Brooksby Farm's accommodations were suitable for guests of all ages.  - Bobby & Alexis
