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.Sent on 03/18/2021

The Most Beautiful Venue!
My husband and I had originally scheduled our wedding in Asheville for October 2020, but COVID-19 certainly changed all scheduled plans! We decided instead to hold an intimate ceremony in August, and through a good friend found Aneesa and her team to assist with all the wedding logistics that are inherent to a COVID-19 event. Our Hindu ceremony was at the Graham Mill, and it was a DREAM. The space is massive, with an incredible amount of light and beautiful light brick walls that make any ceremony decor just pop. Our mandap, with Aneesa's help and guidance, complimented the beautiful, bright elements of Hindu ceremonies with the soft, rustic feel of the venue. The location was also incredibly accessible to the RTP area, with ample parking, and a beautiful outdoor space for our traditional South Indian lunch afterwards. I would 110% recommend this venue to all couples who are searching, especially those planning a Hindu ceremony. We're so thrilled we chose this venue for our ceremony, and loved every moment of working with Aneesa! She made me feel so much at ease, being so attentive to every detail, flexible, kind, generous, and a number of other adjectives -- she helped make the day become so seemingly effortless, which is truly all a bride could ask for!Sent on 05/03/2021

Stunningly unique venue
This venue is stunning! I have seen it change over the past few months into an absolutely beautiful space. Every detail has been perfectly thought out to accommodate any wedding, no matter the style. The surrounding area is also so charming, which would be wonderful for traveling guests.Sent on 05/30/2020
My favorite parts of the venue are the two lounges, gorgeous glass garage door, and the stunning lighting that streams in through the windows.
I have seen a lot of wedding venues, but this one is so wonderfully detailed and truly unique.
