Mill on the river is our favorite restaurant so it only seemed fitting that we had our wedding there. It was absolutely perfect we had our ceremony under the gazebo and the reception upstairs. Everything was taken care of for us & our guests from start to finish. The food was as delicious as it is in the dining room! We couldn’t have asked for a better wedding venue!

I have always loved Mill on the River and as soon as I got engaged I knew there was no other place I wanted to get married at. Mill was the only place we looked at because there was no competition in our eyes.
We met with Laura 2 years before our wedding date to start the process and she made every part of the planning process extremely easy.
In regards to setting up as a Bride all you need to do is bring them all your decorations, favors, etc. the day before the wedding telling them how you want it to look and they take care of the rest. Come wedding day I arrived before the ceremony and was able to see everything before anyone else just to make sure it was how I envisioned.
The staff at the reception were beyond amazing! They were all attentive and very nice to myself, my husband and my guests.
To any Bride who is considering this venue I recommend to look at the landscape and the pictures of previous weddings that have taken place there and you will see why so many previous couples have chose the Mill to be the start of a very important journey.

I fell in love with the Mill as soon as I visited, and I'm so glad I had my wedding here! I was looking for an affordable, all inclusive venue since I was planning from out of state on a budget, and the Mill beats everyone in the area for the value you get! They handled the ceremony, décor, food, bar, and cake for an extremely reasonable price without sacrificing quality at all.

Alexis worked with me throughout the planning and she was very responsive to my emails and phone calls. She was great to work with, and when I finally met her the month before my wedding, she treated myself and my mom to lunch!
I left my décor at the Mill the next before with an instruction list and everything was set up exactly how I wanted it!

Laura was the venue coordinator on the day of my wedding and she was very accommodating - my officiant was in a car accident and was going to be over an hour later so Laura suggested switching the cocktail hour/pictures and ceremony, which was great for my guests and kept things moving! She also helped bustle my very complicated dress. The only compliant is she was a little short with my husband and some guests but I think with all the commotion she was great with me!

The grounds are beautiful - the gazebo for the ceremony has a view of the lake and they have tons of flowers around (saves on a florist!). Our reception was in the smaller River Room and was so quaint with a great view of the Kissing Bridge! I loved the little garden area off the room that was great to get fresh air and let the kids run around in. The food and cake were absolutely fantastic and again, a wonderful value for what you get! The staff and bartender were also great!
