    Highly recommend!!

    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!

    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.
