Best Venue Ever!!
This is THE place
My wife and I got married here in June 2021 and it is a night both us and our guests still talk about. From the beginning of our planning process we knew the venue was the foundation for our big day. We ended up canceling all other venue appointments after stumbling upon MATM and truly knew it was the one before we even saw it in-person.
Functionally, it is exceptional. Beautiful, open space with incredible natural light. A separate ceremony space with a seamless transition to the reception space. Ample amount of bar space at the main bar with an additional second bar. We had about 140 people and used the main bar for drinks and the second bar as a dessert table. For our buffet dinner, our caterers did not need to bring any additional tables. The bar is stocked with sinks, ample storage space, and a full service ice bin and full fridge/freezer. With the functionality brought the convenience for our vendors as above and our guests being able to take the shuttle to/from the venue to nearby hotels and just be in one space - that felt like multiple spaces due to the openness and high ceilings.
The vibe is one-of-a-kind because of its authenticity. Original hardwood floors, handmade tables that need minimalist decor, farmhouse doors, chandeliers, exposed beams, Edison lights, and vintage furniture all come together to create a vibe that’s unique and fitting for all styles. The bridal suite is spacious and great for getting ready; with ample storage space, mirrors, and a private bathroom convenient for wedding day. The bathrooms! Grade-A and unique in its own right. You will receive many compliments about them and if that attention to detail doesn’t tip you off that they are quality, please see attached photos!
Last, but not least Shalese and Robert are such pure souls and you will be very well taken care of before, during, and after your wedding with these two. You’re making a mistake if you pass this place up and don’t seek guidance from them for your special day. They, and the Madison at the Mill, will NOT disappoint!
Best day ever
