Fairy Tale Venue!
First, let me say that this venue was the perfect choice and we would choose it again and again, a thousand times over. I cannot stress how important it is to have a venue owner who loves what she does. From start to finish, owner, Michelle Higdon played an integral role in helping us pull off the wedding of our daughter's dreams! We felt like family and it was very clear that she is passionate about both the venue and the couples getting married there.Sent on 03/27/2020
One unique feature that we fell in love with was the Manor located at the venue. The wedding party was able to stay on site in the most luxurious home for the entire weekend! What fun it was to have everyone staying and celebrating the big event. It also made it possible for us to be close during set up for any issues that arose. My daughter even had a special treat waiting when she arrived the Friday before from the Venue! That special touch meant so much to us and helped set the tone for the upcoming weekend! I wouldn't hesitate to encourage brides with OTHER venues to look at the Manor as an option for out of town family or pre-wedding celebrations! It really is THAT gorgeous and so comfy!
We chose the peninsula as the wedding sight and held the wedding right at dusk. Floating lanterns in the pond, combined with Michelle's already beautifully lit space made for the perfect Fairy Tale night wedding. I could not have been happier with the outcome and cannot wait to see the final photos and video of that night!
There are so many unique features about this venue. We truly had trouble deciding where and how to coordinate the wedding. There is an amazing old barn on the farm that called to us. The fencing, lighting, the pond, horses grazing in the fields...So many options to use for photo ops and wedding settings! We even had the option to move to the new state of the art covered horse arena should rain grace our day!
A couple of helpful hints should you tour the place:
1. Beg Michelle to show you her new "Sippin' Spur" (a horse trailer converted into the bar of your dreams!) Consider it as an option for your wedding. So cool!
2. Don't be afraid to speak candidly about any unusual requests you might have (we temporarily installed a lantern on the peninsula for our wedding).
3. Don't panic if it looks like rain. We had rain right up until the Thursday before the wedding. Michelle made a point to meet with us early the week before and help plan the back up. (PS. The rain stopped, it drained off nicely and the wedding was amazing)
4. Don't let the dirt road leading to the event deter you. Michelle is amazing about staying in touch with county road maintenance and the road was perfect the night of our wedding.
5. Book Now and Early! Michelle is constantly refining and working to make this the go to wedding venue in our area! Her passion, dedication and obvious love of the place and the people she is serving, coupled with the stunning beauty of the venue itself, it isn't hard to see why her calendar stays booked!
A million thanks to Michelle and her staff at Millcreek. As most mothers do, I've dreamt my entire life of giving my daughter the perfect fairy tale wedding. I can honestly say, without reservation, Michelle and Mill Creek Equestrian played the single most important role in helping us bring that to fruition!

Beautiful green southern venue
I have been witness to many weddings at this location and they are all so beautiful. Perfect location for any couple seeking a private gorgeous southern venue. The house is surrounded by rolling landscaped greenery which is also home to many friendly horses. Michelle is also very easy to communicate and plan with.Sent on 03/24/2020

The Perfect Experience for The Perfect Day
How do you even begin to explain one of the best experiences of your life? Ms. Michelle's facility is beyond beautiful and the environment that you walk into is perfect for your memories that is meant for a life time. The venue has perfect surroundings for pictures, comfort, and flexibility. I couldn't have picked a better place. There is a backup plan for "rain" so that is always nice for a bride. The bridesmaid party stayed at the venue the night of the reception and being able to wake up in such a comforting home on the day of your wedding allows a tone of unnecessary stress to be relieved. I would recommend this venue to anyone a million times over.Sent on 03/24/2020
