    Dream Venue

    My husband and I recently married in February 2021, and we cannot even begin to give justice to how perfect our experience was with Aneesa and The Graham Mill. We started planning our wedding in 2019, and due to changes with COVID, had to entirely reorg our original wedding plan, which led us to finding a new venue. We had already worked with Aneesa through our planning service (Harmony Weddings) and knew exactly who to contact when faced with needing a new space for our intimate event. We learned that she had recently completed renovations of this beautiful historical building in Graham, and decided to take a tour. We instantly fell in love with the location of the venue and the building itself - parking for The Graham Mill is so convenient, the town is lovely and has phenomenal local restaurants and breweries to visit, and the building itself is breathtaking! My husband and I could immediately imagine ourselves getting married in this space, surrounded by market lights and natural brick and beautifully restored windows. The bridal party suites were also a true treasure with so much space and lighting. On the day of our wedding, we felt totally at home in The Graham Mill. We were able to fully relax and enjoy the suites to get ready in along with the roomy (and beautiful!) bathrooms. Although we did not utilize the fenced in courtyard for cocktail hour (it was sleeting and super cold on our wedding day), it provided the perfect space for some beautiful and private outdoor photos, and allowed us to have a magical location for our sparkler exit later in the evening. The interior was so warm and inviting all throughout the night, and our guests loved how much character the building had. The space had so much versatility and really came to life with all of our loved ones there. We were even able to arrange the setup for a COVID-friendly barcade during the reception, thanks to Aneesa’s help and guidance! The Graham Mill was our perfect wedding venue, and we had such a seamless and stress-free experience with all of our vendors having access to the building, guest parking, and planning in general.

    Venue was spacious and gorgeous

    Aneesa was so responsive with any questions we had, we got so many compliments on the space and we toured and booked it the same day. We visited multiple times leading up to the wedding the space was always available to us! The natural lighting and exposed brick were so beautiful and played a factor in us booking. There was never any pressure from aneesa. The outdoor space is beautiful when all set up, perfect size for outdoor ceremony or cocktail hour. The dressing rooms were spacious and so was the venue itself.

    Beautiful Wedding Venue

    My husband and I got married at The Graham Mill this month and it was truly a magical day! Aneesa and her team made sure that every little thing went off without a hitch (we used her planning services, Harmony Weddings and Events, as well). The space alone was incredible- the amount of natural light that floods the room made for dreamy pictures, the dressing rooms for the bridal party were perfect and comfortable, and the back patio/garden area with market lights was spectacular, especially at golden hour! The Mill is perfect for both large and small events, ours was about 110 people and was the perfect fit, although it would've fit way more folks just as comfortably! Parking was easy as pie, there were ample spots in the church lot across the street. Aneesa's staff was incredibly helpful with parking and any other questions or needs that guests had!

    If I had to choose my favorite thing about The Graham Mill, it would be the versatility that the space provides. We chose a fairly simple theme, opting to let the exposed brick and concrete floors steal the show with some greenery and neutrals to round it out, but the options are endless with what you could do with it!
