    Mill One is a perfect venue, plain and simple. Extremely versatile space that will work for any type of wedding or event. The space speaks for itself, so for our casual wedding reception, we really did almost no decorating and it was still just stunning. The staff were professional, responsive, and friendly. 10/10!

    I traveled from out of town to photograph a wedding here and the the place is amazing. There was a lot to offer both inside the venue and it's surrounding neighborhood. The bride and groom wanted a rustic/ industrial feel to their wedding and Mill 1 was the perfect place. The staff was great and went above and beyond to make sure that everything ran smoothly. I would most definitely recommend this venue to anyone looking the a rustic type of feel.

    Maggie at Mill 1 is a pleasure to work with. She's prompt and professional while also being easy-going and creative. Her enthusiasm and skill for her work shines through in all her interactions. Mill 1 is an incredible event space as well. The intimate ceremony site as well as the reception area are totally one of a kind in the area...a real gem!

    I'm a huge fan of the old mills, and Mill 1 in Holyoke is just gorgeous! Their rooms have been renovated, the wood floors shiny and bright, but there is still the look and feel of the old mills. Walking in the buildings I like to envision it is a hundred years ago, with the hustle and bustle of the workers moving around, and the sound of machines humming. So much history, and now, so much charm! A real treasure!
