Our daughter and son in law was married on September 2nd at Avans Farm. We were so lucky to find this gem! After many visits to other venues, we knew Avans Farm was the one! Ms. Joann and Mr. Tony were wonderful. The week of the wedding hurricane Harvey was blessing us with all his rain. We were so worried about what to do if it did rain the day of. The Avans was there to answer any questions and to offer suggestions. It poured rain on Friday but come Saturday it dried up and was beautiful. We didn’t get to use the field for the ceremony but ended up holding it in front of the barn doors. It was spectacular. All the guest was impressed with the venue and even the caterer stated that Avans Farm was the most beautiful venue they had been to in the 15 years they have been doing weddings! Another plus is all the decorations and signs that other brides have left for you to use!
My wedding was at Avans Farm on June 18th. We had a great time. The farm was very beautiful and well kept. Family and friends couldn’t say enough about how great the farm looked. The owners were great and very nice to everyone at the wedding that I know talked to them. Tony took time to show me exactly what I was doing wrong with the sound system even after I forgot the first time. Also, he was moving the chair pallets only minutes after we told him we had all the chairs we needed. He was very straightforward in what he provided and what he didn’t. To future customers I would say plan about an hour before setup to go over his checklist of items. We failed to plan on it so we got behind schedule, which was our fault. In my opinion everything that was asked in the check list, rules and clean-up procedures mostly, is not intrusive on the wedding, it’s very reasonable.
Our wedding was this past weekend, 9/17/16, I couldn't have asked for a better time! The Avans are truly amazing people- forever grateful that they provide their property to help brides make their dreams come true. Everyone said how beautiful the farm was. Thank ya'll so much, Tony & Joanne!!!
We were just married on 4/30/16 and we loved the venue. Our families said it was a beautiful wedding and we couldn't agree more. The owners are amazing and so nice. The day came and went fast so enjoy and soak up every moment. It's a very romantic setting and a lovely farm.
Loved this venue! The owners are amazing and very helpful! They went above and beyond to make my daughter's wedding a dream come true. Highly recommended Avans farm.
We just got married in Sept. 2015 and our experience couldn't have been any better! The Avans were so friendly and helpful! They have so many resources (decorations, sound/audio equipment...) on the property, separate buildings you can use for dressing and storage, not to mention that the farm itself is beautiful! Avans Farm is a perfect venue nestled out in the country and is maintained extremely well.
If you're planning for your big day, do yourself a favor and go visit Avans Farm. You'll be so glad you did. I want everyone to have a wedding that was as perfect and memorable as ours was.
My husband and I chose Avans Farm as our venue for our September 2015 wedding. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the way everything went. The location and barn were absolutely beautiful. Tony and Joanne were so great to work with. They were very flexible with us and the price was unbeatable! I would choose Avans Farm over and over again! I compared a lot of venues while deciding and Avans Farm was by far the best option. I would highly recommend anyone looking for a rustic/country venue go to Avans Farm!
We had a wonderful experience with Mr. and Mrs. Avans at Avans Farm. They are precious people. As with any reliable venue, there are rules, and rules have to be followed. I have seen negative reviews, and I believe these people were not aware of, or ignored, the rules and regulations that are clearly stated within the contract. I would recommend this venue to everyone, and I was glad to share it with so many people of Smith County at our wedding - I think people were unaware this sweet venue existed. Thank you, Mr. and Mrs. Avans, for a wonderful experience during the happiest day of our lives! God Bless!
Avans farm was amazing. Tony and Joanne were the best owners you could ask for. They provided amble help with decorations and advice on how to make our country wedding a dream come true. I honestly can't say enough good things about Avans Farm. Do not hesitate on this..... I promise you, you won't be sorry. Thanks for everything! It was perfect!
We got married this past weekend (11/12/16) and things couldn't have been better! The grooms family rented the guest house and loved it! The bridal suite was perfect for us girls to get ready in. The pictures turned out great! And even though it was a little chili, the heaters inside the barn made it perfect for our reception once the sun went down. Mr. And Mrs. Avans were great to work with and were so welcoming and helpful! I'd highly recommend them for other brides!
