Beautiful venue, wonderful staff, amazing day
From the moment we walked through the doors and saw the sun coming through the giant windows in the back of the room, we knew that this was the place we wanted to say "I do". Todd gave us an amazing tour and was the nicest owner out of all the venues we had visited before. Having our wedding here was the easiest decision we made during the whole process. Our Facility Coordinator was Raven Hayes and when I tell you she is the most wonderful person, I'm not lying. There is no way our wedding day would've been as fantastic as it was without her. She is without a doubt, the kindest and most understanding individual and has a passion for making your day special and exactly what you envision. The venue itself is stunning and the rentals are reasonably priced. The food is out of this world! (Please, please try the carrot souffle. You won't be disappointed) We also loved how they were basically a one-stop-shop by doing rentals, food, and florals. Our florals were STUNNING. Jakob did an amazing job and I was completely floored by how beautiful my bouquet came out. Everything was so wonderful- the day-of staff was so professional and sweet, everything ran without a hitch and I am so grateful that we chose this venue. Do yourself a favor and book them now!Sent on 03/06/2020

I fell in love with the venue from day one! Our wedding was absolutely incredible and I could not be any happier! I have only been married for a week and have already had so many people reach out to me in regards to how great the food was, the flowers, the staff, etc. I would highly recommend this venue!Sent on 03/19/2019

My wedding day was perfect!
If you are second guessing this venue, STOP AND CHOOSE IT! From the amazing rustic venue space, to the stunning river views in the back, to the food, picturesque decor, the details, the service, the bridal and groom's suites -- EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT! We had the winter wedding of our dreams, and the team (including Kaylyn, Jakob, and Todd) took the utmost care of us. Kaylyn was my point of contact, and she was super responsive, informative, and just super sweet! I will miss our almost daily phone calls :) She made sure we were aware of any specials they were running, she stayed on top of everything I wanted, and even lent me her boots for our morning-after photoshoot on the rocks. SERVICE WITH A CAPITAL S, HONEY!!!!
Jakob and Todd had me set on decor and florals, and OMG! They made my vision come straight to life. I was a long distance bride, so much of our communication was via email, with me sending tons of photos and videos of what I wanted. They exceeded my expectations!! I even inspired a new prop: the gold circular arbor! I sent Jakob a picture of the arbor with flowers on it, and they built one just for me (well, and other brides I suppose LOL!). And it was BEAUTIFUL! The attention to detail was immaculate. I wanted lush rose petals down the aisle - they executed. I wanted lush greenery on the tables with hundreds of candles - they killed it. Everything was beyond my imagination!
And OMG THE FOOD! Every single guest ranted and raved about how good the mac-n-cheese was, and how great every other item was on the buffet.
For a long-distance bride, having a one-stop shop venue with an industrial/vintage look was my dream. And The Mill at Yellow River exceeded every expectation I had. I am eternally grateful for the staff and for everyone who helped make our wedding day phenomenal.Sent on 02/11/2019
