    More than we could have imagined...

    If your looking for an easy wedding planning process this is the venue for you. My husband and I fell in love with the venue after scheduling a tour. We made sure to put in our deposit right away and get the process started. We ended up having to reschedule our date. Through it all the staff was patient with us and ensured that we would have first dibs on our new date. They definitely made the planning process very easy and took us through every step of the way. The day of our wedding was more than we could have imagined! It was like every pin and every idea we told them had flown of our pinterest board and had come to reality. Everything was perfect from the food, decor and everything in between. We received so many compliments on how beautiful everything was. The staff really listens to your wants and needs and brings them to reality.

    Best. Venue. Ever.

    If we could give more than 5 stars, we ABSOLUTELY would!!!! We are writing this review as the parents of the bride. Our daughter's wedding was just 3 days ago and we felt so compelled to express our utmost gratitude and total pleasure with our event! When we began our search for venues, we toured the Cotton Gin and were immediately sold on the “Truly All Inclusive” package. Our daughter was an out-of-state college student at the time so we needed a venue that would really help with the planning. The Cotton Gin did EVERYTHING and did it all TOP NOTCH, from the venue to the DJ, videographer, & photographer. The flowers, food, cake and all of the decor were delicious and beautiful. The staff was so attentive, professional, and friendly. The venue owner, Amanda, was so incredibly kind and a pleasure to work with as well. The venue itself is gorgeous... with so much attention to detail and constantly has upgraded decor to keep it so trendy and fresh. It offers both an indoor and outdoor setting to cater to any type of weather that might come up. It also has so many unique areas to experience during the event from ceremony to cocktail hour to the reception. The outdoor areas were extremely popular on our night as the weather was beautiful! The bridal suite was absolutely dreamy!! This space was impeccably appointed and included 6 salon style chairs for hair and make-up, stocked fridge with mimosas and lunch, as well as a gorgeous bedroom for amazing photos. It literally had everything we could ever need or anticipate needing. The grooms suite is amazing as well and all of the groomsmen enjoyed spending time playing pool, hanging out and eating/drinking! On the day of the event, our coordinate Kayla was a life saver! She ran it all with poise and grace and never seemed stressed. We cannot rave enough about her and her professionalism, hard work and pleasant demeanor. The Cotton Gin at Mill Creek is worth every penny we paid, and honestly is an incredible value for all that it offers. Additionally, we also chose to have our rehearsal dinner on site in the White Room and it was also so incredibly well done, top to bottom! Lastly, the scenery for photographs is like none other out there. The rustic charm is simply stunning in photos and there are so many different scenic areas from the lush greenery and trees to the historic water wheels. We came into this day with extremely high standards and expectations. All were, not only, met but exceeded in every way! We can 100% recommend the Cotton Gin at Mill Creek without hesitation and with total and complete confidence.
