Perfect Modern Industrial Venue
Melrose Knitting Mill was the modern-industrial venue of our dreams. Our guests raved about how cool the venue was. The day was beautiful from start to finish. We could not be happier with the entire experience. The food was incredible, and our wedding coordinator, Jessica Tilton, made sure that the day went flawlessly. We would do it all over again without changing a thing.Sent on 05/04/2019

Loved Every Moment!
My husband and I recently got married at The Melrose and it was absolutely incredible! Both our ceremony and reception took place in this beautiful venue and we were never disappointed. It was perfect.Sent on 04/03/2019
We worked with Blake, our coordinating genius who made sure everything stayed on track throughout the night. She was extremely reliable and ready with solutions to anything that came up amiss. Even before the big day, her down to Earth personality always made me feel relaxed and reminded me that everything would turn out just fine.
The food was fantastic too! The mac and cheese in particular is to die for—our guests are still telling us how good it was!
And of course the evening couldn’t have been executed so well without the amazing staff. Everyone was very helpful and accommodating with anything that we needed. I truly couldn’t have envisioned a more perfect night! THANK YOU!
