Tell me a little about how it all began. What sparked the interest in building this wedding venue?
The idea of Firefly Gardens began back in 2014. My mother, Jan Smith, Brother, Dennis Smith, and myself were sitting around and discussing what we would enjoy doing as careers if we could choose and we all discussed about the idea of a wedding venue. From that point, we moved forward in finding real estate. Dennis was the one that found this lovely piece of property. From the moment we signed the contract to purchasing the property, the ideas poured out.
