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!

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.

Everyone wants their wedding day to be perfect, nice weather, the presence of all of your family and friends, beautiful décor, good food, and an amazing venue. Well, we can't do anything about the weather or our not so on time guests, but we do have control over the rest. And no one does that better than The Mill at Yellow River. Todd initially blew us away with the tour and the breakdown, however Kaylyn our Facility Coordinator has to be one of the most thoughtful and considerate people we have ever met! She was professional, communicative, and always accommodating! With the help of her team, she made sure that day went according to plan and that the execution was flawless. She even kept our vendors on track, not an easy task. The couple's level of satisfaction means so much to the staff at Beyond Details and The Mill. We could not have asked for a better experience! All of our friends and family cannot stop talking about our perfect day. Thank you guys, much gratitude!! M&M
