My husband and I found the Mill online and the first time we went to visit we immediately fell in love. Lisa is absolutely incredible and Stephanie, Colleen, Melissa, Hannah and team made us feel incredibly special. Even though they have so many couples they are working with we always felt like they gave us their full attention when we talked. The care and attention to detail gave us confidence that we would have a great wedding. I recommend hiring them not only for your venue but also wedding planning. It was the easiest, most relaxed day and we just got to spend it with each other and family and friends. Best decision we made, our family stayed in the cottages and we enjoyed the Mill all to ourselves!

My husband and I knew The Mill at Fine Creek was where we wanted to have our wedding from the second we drove onto the property. The cottages were being built at the time, but we had our close friends and family make reservations from the blueprints alone.
Fast forward 18 months to our big day...the weather was hot and the skies were becoming threatening, but Colleen and staff stood ready should we have to make a last minute switch from holding our ceremony in the pergola to inside. Fortunately, the weather held out until the reception where our guests enjoyed delicious food and drinks. Many commented it was some of the best food at a wedding they had ever had. We had a special family recipe we requested be made and served with the passed hors d’oeuvres. Lisa and her team executed upon this beautifully.
The Mill takes great care to make your wedding planning easy and pays attention to even the smallest detail. Following the wedding, my husband realized his cuff link had broken and one side lost. He was disappointed, as he had them made as a keepsake of our day, but knew we’d never find the lost piece. When we arrived home and began unpacking our things, there was an envelope containing the missing piece. It’s as though Colleen and staff were fairy godmothers quietly correcting anything that tried to go astray. If you’re on the fence about hiring their day-of coordinating services, we absolutely recommend them. Colleen and team not only made sure everything went off without a hitch, but she saw to it that my husband and I were taken care of, had time to eat, and even led us to portable air conditioning to cool down after the ceremony while she bustled my gown.
Rosalie at The Provisions Shop makes the cottage experience feel like your staying with a beloved family member. She’s so accommodating, genuinely kind, and a delightful presence who was adored by us and all of our guests.
The Mill is an enchanting venue with a top notch team!
We have been working with The Mill at Fine Creek for years and hear endless compliments on the service and process. A true Central Virginia gem!
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.
