We heard back from them quickly & had a very nice tour, twice. Beautiful venue with a separate area for a wedding ceremony and the huge reception hall. Lots of bathrooms, 2 bars, nice bridal suite and small groomsmen room. We really love that it’s an upscale rustic feel. Not too fancy per my daughter, but really beautiful. Beautiful wood tables also. Holds 350, so we won’t be so limited on inviting all of our family and friends. 💕Sent on 06/20/2019

You and your guests will be blown away!
This spot is the *ultimate* wedding venue. We could not have been happier with our decision through the entire process. Not only is the venue full of unique characteristics that will set your wedding apart, but it is functional to meet your needs whatever they may be. Some of the unique characteristics are the history of the venue, the original wood floors, the beautiful restrooms (and plenty of them!), the well-appointed and gorgeous bridal suite with its own bathroom, the huge windows to let in natural light, the bright and elegant lighting, and of course - the utility elevator that can be used for a surprise entrance! The functional attributes are its excellent climate control, high ceilings, good acoustics, optional divider drapes, lots of bar space, an industrial kitchen with prep tables & a large refrigerator, an ice maker, and the list goes on – but these are the amenities we found most useful on our day.
As if that is not enough, working with the venue coordinators was an absolute joy. Shalese and Robert are responsive and accomodating, as well as (most importantly) available to their couples on the day of the wedding. Shalese works hard to collaborate with your whole vendor team to provide you with a seamless and organized event. She has a no-sweat attitude that makes for stress-free preparation and execution.
If you plan on a large crowd and a big party, this is your venue. Logistics were a breeze thanks to ample parking and clear signage. One thing I would note is that this is a very large space, so with a small guest count you may find that it is too big for you. We had 130 guests and at some moments the crowd seemed thin, mainly due to the fact that our tables were dispersed to fill the space. A major positive when it comes to the dining portion and the comfort of your guests, but if you prefer an initmate space it doesn’t quite check that box. I can only speak to the reception piece since our ceremony was not at the venue.
Overall, we really have nothing bad to say about our experience with Madison at the Mill. It was an absolutely beautiful reception and our guests were blown away by this venue. It’s neutral enough to compliment any style, while still making a statement of its own. Just the best! If this venue is available for your preferred date, book it right now!!

PERFECT wedding venue!
Madison at the Mill is THE spot. Working with Shalese was fantastic! She is clearly so passionate about this location and every event that happens there. I couldn't believe all the accommodations and options you have. It was so unassuming from the outside, but once I opened the door to the location...my jaw has never dropped farther. That was the reaction of every guest for our wedding. Not only that, but Shalese allowed us to drop by at the drop of a hat and the entire process was explained clearly prior to the contract. Everything went off without a hitch. So fantastic!Sent on 12/29/2019
