I love having my wedding there!! Only because it's beautiful and great price
BUT if we are talking about the service... it was terrible! So I do recommend it
for people that are on a budget like myself, but be aware they do not pay attention to your needs!
The possibility to have an indoor or outdoor ceremony.
How huge the place is! 2 floors and a basement plus the outside.
The path that goes from the bridge behind this place to the park.
Adelphi Mill is a great space with a lot of history and character. We looked at several venues offered by the PG Parks Department, and we chose Adelphi Mill because it is affordable, has a lot of charm, and had enough room so that all of our guests could eat and dance inside where there is air conditioning (a must for a July wedding in MD). There are many places to take great wedding pictures both inside and outside of the Mill. The river and the gears and the basement provide extra opportunities for interesting pictures. Many of our guests commented on how they never knew the Mill existed and how much they liked it.
Be aware that it is a lot of work if you plan on having a wedding at Adelphi Mill. You cannot set anything up before the time your contract states, which can add extra stress on the day of your wedding. We went to check the Mill a few days before our date to see what state it was in, and we're glad that we did. The water was turned off and the bathrooms were a mess. We called the Parks Department, and fortunately they responded pretty quickly. We can only imagine what would have happened if we found out about the problem on the day of our wedding.
The mill was the perfect place for our wedding. And it was perfect for our budget. We used it on a Saturday night, and unfortunately the folks who used it the night before didn't put the tables and chairs away properly, making extra work for us on our day. Out of the three bathrooms, only one of was usable (thankfully the handicapped one!) I don't think it was entirely the fault of the park system, just that they need to have a little more oversight and upkeep when the space gets so busy.
