Situated in Holyoke, Massachusetts, Mill 1 at Open Square is an exquisite wedding venue in a refurbished paper mill. The structure dates back to the 19th century and has been transformed into an event venue combining chic and rustic charm with contemporary design.

This vibrant event space encourages couples to use their imagination and create a celebration that is individual to them.

Facilities and Capacity

At Mill 1 at Open Square, each detail in the architecture has been carefully tended to. The brick walls were finished and restored during the remodel for an industrial vibe. Above, the wood beams and tall ceilings create an open atmosphere. The building features gorgeous maple floors that complement a variety of wedding themes. The amenities in the event spaces are modern, and there is also a bespoke bar. Natural light pours into the room and illuminates celebrations with a soft glow, thanks to the large windows. As night settles in after the sun dips below the horizon, visible from the windows, the venue can be lit in multiple ways. Fairy lights or lanterns, for example, provide an ethereal mood, while market lighting offers a classic touch to the space. Up to 250 guests can be invited to a gala held at this venue. The space can be configured to fit seating, a dance floor, and an entertainment area.

Amazing staff and venue

This place was absolutely beautiful. The coordinator Regina was super nice and helpful throughout the whole process. The venue was beautiful and handicap accessible which was important to us. Cheaper then most places and you got more from this place then most places as well. you could decorate the venue to your liking so it fit you and your vision. I Honestly couldn't see myself getting married anywhere else. This place was perfect.

Everything we could ask for and more!

Mill 1 was an absolutely perfect venue for our wedding. The brick, natural lighting, and open spaces made for a beautiful day, and even more beautiful photos. We worked mostly with Regina, and she was an absolute dream to work with. She was professional, helpful, and responsive, and made sure to account for every last detail to make our day perfect. The other staff we worked with were also wonderful, including the bar manager Beth who made our signature cocktail vision come to life. Couldn't have asked for a more perfect wedding day or planning experience. I would highly recommend Mill 1 to anyone considering booking it.

PERFECT wedding day!

Mill 1 was the BEST place for my husband and I to have our wedding. For starters it is obviously a gorgeous space and very our style. The brick, giant windows and hard wood floors are just wonderful. The staff is so kind and helpful throughout this whole process. If you want to DANCE all night, this is the spot. We had roughly 120 guests, most of them dancing, and there was still plenty of room for everyone. Trust me, the dance floor is not something to over look! Wonderful spot, 10 stars!

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!
