The perfect wedding experience!
We had an absolutely amazing experience with The Mill at Fine Creek. We got married in October of 2018 and could not have asked for a better wedding. If you are considering having your wedding at the Mill but haven't visited yet, one visit will decide for you. My husband researched venues all over Virginia and DC, but we both knew right away when we visited the Mill that it was right for us. It is a beautiful place and the pictures hardly do it justice.
The entire experience of preparing for our wedding with the Mill was seamless. Throughout the planning process the staff at the Mill was incredibly helpful, guiding us through the process and reminding us of things we hadn't even thought of.
One of the biggest reasons we chose to have our wedding at the Mill initially was the flexibility we could have with our menu. Lisa is so easy to work with and is so creative in the kitchen. She made it so easy for us to choose our menu. The food was phenomenal! We loved every single dish, and Lisa even suggested a fun mid-dinner drink with champagne and sorbet that matched perfectly with our signature cocktail.
The word I would use to describe our wedding day is again "seamless." You have access to the site pretty much all day, which gave us plenty of time to not feel rushed as we got everything set up. Throughout the morning and afternoon, the staff was available to help us with anything we needed. Special thanks to Hannah for being available and making us feel so welcome.
I would highly recommend spending the marginal extra amount to work with one of the Mill's day-of-coordinators. Colleen was our day-of-coordinator and was nothing short of amazing. Every time I turned around, Colleen was ready for the next step of the night. From the start of the wedding on, I never stressed about what was coming next because Colleen was always organized and ready.
We loved having the beautiful cottages right next to the venue as well. Family and friends were able to stay there and simply walk back to their rooms after the wedding festivities. The brewery has some great food and we had a lot of fun with family and friends hanging out there the night before our wedding.
Our entire wedding experience was perfect. We couldn’t be happier and I am so glad we chose The Mill at Fine Creek!
P.S. We are a same-sex couple, and the Mill treated us with the utmost respect and made us feel completely comfortable.

I recently booked with them. I love this place and the owner is so gracious to still give us the old price when we first inquired with them. Their food are amazing too. My fiancé and I at least go here twice a year even if it’s two hours away from us.

The Mill at Fine Creek is one of my favorite venues. The staff is really on task, which is important if you want your wedding to come off without a hitch. Just as important, though, is the site itself. It is historic, with ties to Thomas Jefferson himself. The grounds are well maintained--with blooming flowers throughout the spring, summer and fall. The ruins are strung with lights so it is really just the place for a late afternoon or evening wedding if your guest list in on the short side. It is also a draw that their is a reception area on site. Again, this is fine venue.
The Mill at Fine Creek is such a historic venue and one of my personal favorites. So much so I had my own wedding here. Their food rivals the best restaurants in town. Colleen and Lisa are amazing to work with. I'm confident that every event held here is flawless and you certainly won't find a more gorgeous back drop to make such monumental memories.
