Wonderful experience

We found the Mill while searching venues and knew the minute we set foot on site that we were going to go with them. The entire place is beautiful and we loved the options for ceremony sites - we were fortunate that the weather held for us and we had our ceremony in the Mill ruins as planned. The majority of our guests were from out of state and the on-site cottages were a key factor for us. Everyone loved the cottages, the venue, the brewery, and everything. Our day-of coordinator, Abby, was lovely to work with and it was such a relief to have her handle everything to make sure they day went smoothly. The food was AMAZING and we had a great time planning the menu. Our guests could not stop complimenting the food, drinks, and entire experience. We also appreciated their willingness to accommodate gluten free options, as I am Celiac. The majority of our menu was made gluten free, and the entire staff made sure that I knew what wasn't and brought me separate, gluten-free portions of both the passed appetizers and the main meal. Our cake was entirely gluten free, absolutely beautiful, and delicious! No one even realized it was gluten free, which is a feat. Overall an excellent spot, and we'll continue to visit the brewery in months to come! Cannot recommend them highly enough.

Amazing Experience!!

I cannot recommend the Mill enough. We have them what we wanted and then they took care of EVERYTHING to the most minute detail! It was so nice to get to be present on our day and let them sweat the details! Beth, our coordinator through the Mill, was amazing! The food was SO GOOD and we got to pick exactly what we wanted. Plus, it鈥檚 beautiful!

The Best Venue in the RVA Area

We knew we wanted to get married at the Mill before we even got engaged. It is such a perfect wedding venue with beautiful grounds- there are so many great spots for photos and to have your ceremony. The staff are wonderful. Melissa gave us multiple venue tours before booking and she was so patient while answering all of our questions. Beth the coordinator was such a joy to work with and made us feel like we could just relax on the day of our wedding and not worry about a thing! She was attentive to our needs and very organized. Our guests loved the food and Lisa and her team did a wonderful job with planning our menu. We received so many positive comments about the bartending staff as well! If you are looking for a beautiful, all-inclusive venue with a getting ready space, on site accommodations, top notch food and bar menu- The Mill at Fine Creek is the best spot in Richmond.

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.
