Amazing venue and staff!
We absolutely LOVED this venue and it's entire staff! It is the perfect combination of a unique industrial/historic venue with an amazing in house catering menu that everyone RAVED about! Seriously, everyone at our wedding said it's the best food they had ever had at a wedding! We couldn't have picked a better venue if we tried, and wish we could do our wedding day over and over again at Empire Mills!Sent on 05/22/2019
