Made our dreams come true!
Every single thing about the Mill is quality! From reviews, I know that this was true for others, but for us it was nothing short of amazing as on top of every other issue, we had a pandemic to work around.Sent on 12/28/2020
In the spring of 2019, my daughter and her fiance planned an October 2020 wedding. In the spring of 2020, we all thought that life would be back to “normal” in the fall. However, by the beginning of the summer, it was pretty clear that nothing was certain.
Confused and nervous, my husband and I met with Jackie Truesdale in June. We left that meeting absolutely reassured that she and the Mill would do whatever could be done so that we could have the party that our daughter dreamed about.
And that’s exactly what happened. Jackie held our hands for four months as we considered every iteration of a wedding celebration. She promptly answered emails and texts from my daughter and me. She regularly updated us on what was and was not permissible.
The staff at the Mill clearly thought through all of the Covid restrictions and cautions. The night of our party, they took guests’ temperatures, offered hand sanitizer, monitored the wearing of masks, etc. At the Mill, there is a spacious covered deck overlooking the lake where guests could chat warmed by heaters or listen to the band, which was under a tent over the adjacent patio. The Mill provided a server for every dining table, which in addition to minimizing contact, resulted in unbelievably personal care for guests, who could remain at their seats if they chose. The maitre d was Judy, and the couple of times I wanted to speak with her I literally turned around and saw her nearby!
So we agree with all of the positive feedback from other reviewers: you won’t find better service, food, or decor! We add to that the incredible ingenuity and professionalism of the staff at the Mill to work their magic, especially during a pandemic! We can’t thank them enough for the unforgettable night they created for us!

Best night ever
We got married at the Mill in March of 2021, and it was nothing short of a dream. Even in these uncertain times, Ashley and all of the staff at The Mill made it certain that our wedding would be the best day of our lives. Even after having to move our wedding day due to COVID, less than two weeks out, The Mill staff could not have been more gracious and accommodating. Despite the changes, every aspect of our wedding was perfect. Richard was a true superhero that day from start to finish especially when my dress ripped and he followed me around all night pinning it. Our family and friends are still raving about the whole night, saying it was the best wedding they have ever been too! We will forever look back on our wedding day and be thankful we chose The Mill.Sent on 04/12/2021

Words cannot express how thankful we are for Jackie, Ashley, Richard, and the rest of the Mill team. Though my husband and I had a "Covid" wedding with some alterations and adjustments along the way, we couldn't be happier that we went forward with our original date as planned. The entire event was absolutely beautiful, and most of what we used was owned by the venue making it incredibly easy to plan without having to spend extra on decor. Planning was made simple and stress free by Ashley and Jackie. They were so kind and understanding throughout the entire process when it came to different outcomes due to covid. Richard was phenomenal, and between him and Gabriel during the rehearsal and the day of, we didn't have a single worry. Richard has been in the business for a while and even knew our DJ, which made the night run even smoother. Maite was our bridal attendant and couldn't have been sweeter or more attentive. There goes so much time and effort into planning what you want to be the "perfect" wedding. It's only one day of your life but there is so much weight hanging on this one day. And we can both truly say that this day could not have been more perfect thanks to the Mill and all of their staff. We could not recommend the Mill enough and would absolutely do it all over again if we could! We're looking forward to coming back in the future! We love you guys! Thank you so much for everything!Sent on 04/21/2021
