Best Wedding Ever

WOW. Where do I begin?! We were absolutely blown away by this venue and their team on our wedding day. From the moment we toured, we knew this was our place. It is an all inclusive venue with SO much food, decor and signage you can use, and setup and breakdown. The grounds are stunning and they just updated their outdoor ceremony area so it’s even more beautiful!

Our coordinator Racquel was always quick to respond to our emails with any questions we may have while we were planning. The day of the wedding, their team really delivered. From the moment we got there, their bridal attendant Julia was on top of making sure I was taken care of from getting me water, to holding my train or bouquet. She also made sure we were fed! The venue even gave us wedding day gifts based on our likes (my husband got new DND dice and I got a cat mom mug, it was so sweet!) The cocktail hour and dinner blew our guests away. Tyler, our maitre d, also went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of and where we needed to be at what time.

So many of our guests, including one that was a maitre d at a popular North Jersey venue for 15+ years, said between the food, service, and grounds, it was the BEST wedding they’ve ever been to. And not to be biased, but we could NOT agree more! You will absolutely not be disappointed in choosing this venue. Your wedding day will go smoothly and stress free with the care and service The Mill Lakeside Manor provides.

The mill is the absolute best!

I honestly do not know where to begin. My husband and I recently got married at The Mill and we cannot find all the words to express how happy we are with our decision. We would choose The Mill over and over again. Both we and our families cannot recommend The Mill enough. From the very beginning and at our initial tour, the staff treated us with upmost respect and hospitality. We toured a total of four venues, but The Mill stuck out to us the most, making our decision one of the easiest.
Susan, our wedding coordinator, was simply THE BEST! Susan was so accommodating and prompt with any replies to questions/requests we made. She went over the top with EVERYTHING and made sure all of our visions came to reality.
My wedding day was MAGICAL! Although the weather was not the very best for an outdoor ceremony; The Mill accommodated us in every way. I cannot express how appreciative we are and delighted with our last-minute indoor setup. Our guests are still raving about the ceremony.
We had a handful of guests who are handicapped. The layout of the venue was so handicap accessible. Everyone was a part of each aspect of wedding, no matter their disability, which was so important to us.
The food was EXCEPTIONAL!!! Cocktail hour was incredible and the station options were so delicious we did not know which ones to choose. We are so happy with our choices. Although CH was full of greetings and photos, Julia, our bridal attendant went out of her way to make sure we got bites of each station and passed horderves. Vin and I were able to celebrate together, intimately, at the beginning of CH in the bridal suite with our signature drinks and so much food. Dinner was DELICIOUS! Every guest complimented the food, no matter what meal they selected.
The reception room was so spacious!! Our guests sat comfortably at the tables and we were able to fit a Photo Booth, guest book table, cake table, and table to honor those who have passed. We had plenty of space to dance the night away. Guests were blown away from the entrances we all made with the automatic door entryway. The view of the lake is breath taking! No matter where you are on premises, there is so much beauty around you. Photos can be shot from anywhere!
Tyler, our Matridee, was incredible. He ran the show so smoothly and was so attentive to our preferences and requests. He was hardworking and very dedicated.
We love how our time at The Mill has not ended even after our wedding has passed. We are looking forward to all the fundraiser events and alumni events hosted.
I can rave about The Mill until I am blue in the face. There is truly not a single thing I have to say negatively about The Mill. With that said, if you are looking for a one-stop shop and a highly accommodating and affordable venue, look no further. The Mill is it! We rate The Mill with 5 golden stars.

Belinda's & Carmen's spectacular wedding!!

Carmen and I want to personally thank Sue & Tyler from the Mill Lakeside Manor for a spectacular Wedding. They are not just our wedding vendor they are our family. We spent 2 glorious years making our plans turn into a Cinderella story. Susan our coordinator with her devotion to making sure all of our questions and needs were addressed and fulfilled. Tyler our Maitre D who without question orchestrated a flawless wedding event. Susan went the extra mile and let Carmen & I practice our choreograph first dance at the Mills when needed. Trust me, if it wasn't for getting the actual feel of their amazing dance floor, I don't think we would have pulled it off. Tyler always made sure want we requested & needed was fulfilled to the fullness. There wasn't one guest that didn't express their amazement of our wedding day and gave it a 10 rating. Well there was one they gave us a 9.9 rating which is funny. That couple is never 100% no matter where we go LOL! Please don't be intimidated by the beauty and elegance of the Mills Lakeside Manor. When it comes to it, everyone there treats you with the kindness and respect you get from a ma & pop store! Susan, Tyler & staff we love you guys for making our dreams come true!! Belinda & Carmen

Hi, I am Jackie! Born and raised at the Jersey shore (a proud Sea Girt Patriot for life), I attended Loyola University in Maryland & dedicated 7 years of my career as a Jersey City school teacher. I was honored to earn Teacher of the Year 2019-2020. Those who know me well have dubbed me “Jac of all trades”. My knowledge of and love for the wedding industry is homegrown – my family has been in the business for many years. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a passion for party planning. Being one of seven children, every dinner is a party! (I LOVE a good theme party.)

When I’m not helping The Mill Lakeside Manor team deliver exceptional wedding experiences, you’ll find me spending time with family and my golden retriever, Hunter.

Fun Fact: I love going to Vermont to snowboard, ride my dirtbike, spin honey, and make homemade apple cider.

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” These are the wise words once said by Walt Disney and they have been a mantra in my life for everything that I have done. Hi, I’m Sue and I am a Johnson & Wales graduate from the Charlotte, North Carolina Campus. Don’t get me wrong, I am born and raised in Jersey my whole life but I’ll say the occasional “Y’all” when you meet me!

My degree is in Hotel & Lodging with concentrations in beverage management, event management, and psychology! If you ever see me walking backward, it’s because I spent my years in college perfecting the skill of giving campus tours. What I bring to the table is previous knowledge in the wedding and hospitality industry.

I always said that my goal was to make others’ dreams become a reality and I’ve found that bringing weddings to life could not make this statement any truer!

Fun Fact: I dabbled in archery (however, I am no Katniss Everdeen), I love going away to the mountains to hike and snowboard with my family, cooking and baking are my passions!

Racquel  Padula

Wedding Coordinator

Hi, I am Racquel! I started my career after high school as a hairdresser. Although I have loved my experience in the industry on the beauty side of things, I find that the organization and details of an event are what truly excite me. I have a keen eye for design and strive for perfection which is why I am currently studying event planning at the New York Institute of Art and Design. Making dream weddings a reality is what I strive for!

Fun Fact: If I’m not working, I’m probably at home with my pup and listening to Taylor Swift!
