I can't say enough good things about Bill Miller's Castle. We had our wedding on New Year's Eve and it was the most perfect night that we could have ever asked for. Lisa and Victoria were both incredibly helpful throughout the entire experience. They quickly responded to every question I had throughout the process and handled everything the day of so I had nothing to think about. They set up the space exactly how we had hoped, and the entire experience was seamless. We used the bridal suite to get ready and had plenty of space to do everything we needed for hair, makeup, lunch, getting dressed, etc (with 8 bridesmaids!) Our guests all had an amazing time and told us it was the best food they've ever had at a wedding - from the delicious appetizers, to the large entrees, to the incredible Venetian room with every dessert imaginable. They all loved the unique ambiance at the castle, with something cool to find in every corner of the space. At midnight, we watched the ball drop on a large screen and had a champagne toast on the massive dance floor. Everything was truly magical, and I highly recommend a wedding - especially on NYE - at Bill Miller's Castle!Sent on 04/04/2020

Victoria was incredibly easy to work with and responsive as we navigated through COVID together. She kept us up to date on new COVID guidelines and gave us options so we could make the decisions on guest count, plating, ceremony, etc. Bill Miller’s had not only attentive staff, but amazing food and great vendor recommendations. The venue is beautiful and well-maintained. All our guests were extremely impressed by the whole event. Victoria was with us every step of the way and we never had to wonder what was going on or if something was being taken care of. She also made sure my husband and I were staying hydrated and eating food through the event so we stayed attentive to our guests and had an amazing night to remember!Sent on 04/17/2021

Ideal Wedding Venue
We could not be happier with our experience with Bill Miller's Castle and wholeheartedly recommend it as a wedding venue. Initially, the location is absolutely gorgeous and is conveniently located just outside of New Haven. Furthermore, our Event Coordinator, Victoria Smith, was everything and more than we could have possibly asked for in planning the most important day of our lives. Not only was Victoria and the rest of her team incredibly knowledgeable and professional, but their experience with wedding planning seamlessly translated into a perfectly executed wedding experience that neither we, or our guests, will ever forget.Sent on 12/31/2019
