This place was absolutely perfect! It has an indoor and outdoor ceremony area, so there were no worries about the unpredictable Georgia weather. Plus, both ceremony areas are absolutely beautiful! There is a designated cocktail hour space with games to keep guests cool, fed, and entertained while the wedding party took pictures. The reception area had a dance floor, outdoor patio, and separate bar area, allowing everyone to spread out and enjoy the reception however they wanted. The entire venue is stunning and rustic! Guests that had difficulty walking were transported via golf cart. The food was delicious, and there were lots of options! The venue offers lots of vendor options, but you can bring in your own if you prefer (except for catering). The vendors they work with are friendly, professional, and do an excellent job! Amanda and Logan worked with us to develop our table decorations, and they have lots of decorations to choose from, so I did not have to purchase anything. There was excellent communication between the staff throughout the event, so the night went very smoothly! We absolutely loved the Cotton Gin and would recommend it to everyone that wants a rustic, beautiful, fun wedding!Sent on 05/20/2018

We were blown away by The Cotton Gin @ Mill Creek! I am in nursing school and trying to plan the wedding of my dreams. Amanda made email communication a breeze by getting back to my mom and I with answers to our questions. The food selections look so great; excited to taste and sample. The price package are by far the most comprehensive. They quickly checked off our boxes of the list of services we will need fulfilled to make our wedding day a beautiful success. In addition to that their customer services is proving to make this a stress free process. I am confident that we have found the right venue without the need to tour any others. I look forward to working with this great group of people!Sent on 01/29/2019

The perfect day!
Our wedding was the epitome of a perfect day! No stone was left unturned. Every detail was spot on and the whole day was taken care of by The Cotton Gin. The flowers and decor were breath taking, food was delicious, the DJ did an amazing job with our music and type of songs we liked. There’s something for everyone to do and enjoy. Needless to say I HIGHLY recommend The Cotton Gin.Sent on 05/05/2019
