    We are so happy we chose the Historic Rice Mill as our venue! We were specifically looking for a place with outdoor space with historic charm (ideally downtown) and the Rice Mill filled all of those categories. We only had our reception here and we hired Eve as our event coordinator; she handled our menu, all of our rentals, and of course, day-of management. It was nice to work with her since she knew the event space extremely well and could direct us regarding different arrangements, event flow, etc. Our event had full seating for 130 people and food was served at stations. The menu is selected a-la-carte, and we initially had trouble figuring out what would be included in the set-price, but Eve worked us through it and explained that we should pick what we wanted, and then we could adjust based on our budget. As a local bride, Eve let me stop by during set-up for other weddings so that I could see different arrangements which was really helpful for decor ideas. The reception ran perfectly and it absolutely confirmed our choice to have Eve coordinate - there were no issues and she took care of us the entire night! I especially appreciated that she made sure that we ate by getting us dishes from each station! Speaking of food, it was delicious! Prior to the tasting I was worried that the portions wouldn't be large enough but I was very wrong, there was plenty of food and it was amazing - I highly recommend the mac n cheese station and the make-your-own ice cream sandwiches! Crowd favorites! Wish we could do it again!
