Welcome to  the New Branch Farms PaVenue

under construction in smithfield, virginia

PaVenue - the marriage of a pavilion and a venue

        There is something about a countryside wedding that brings family and friends together. 

As a family-owned business, you and your wedding day are incredibly special to us.

We consider it an honor and a privilege to be a part of every wedding we host

and we strive to make sure every moment is a keepsake.

Beautiful Tent Wedding at New Branch Farms

If I could give this place 6 stars, I would.  The people who own this venue are the kindest, most hospitable hosts around.  My wife and I were in a bind due to COVID, and we were able to secure this venue and had the most PERFECT wedding, largely due to New Branch Farms.  This is more then a venue space, it's a family who legitimately wants to serve you and make your event memorable.  If you don't at least consider New Branch Farms for your event/wedding, you are making a mistake"  Brandon Cook

Mini Dog Park - For a lot of couples, pets are a big part of their family. We totally get it and agree that having your fur baby by your side during one of the most important moments of your lives only seems right. The dilemma is how to keep them safe and entertained before and after the ceremony. So, we are building a mini “dog park” beside the venue (with 23 acres, we have plenty of space!!). The park will have a water/feeding station, shelter, and fun stuff to keep your pup happy and comfortable! If you want to include your fur baby in your wedding, New Branch Farms has you covered!!!
