    Amazing location and team!

    Absolutely wonderful! There are not enough words to express how amazing Alicia and her team was to us during our wedding planning process. They were a dream to work with! Every moment of our wedding day was perfect! Highly, highly recommend booking the Mills House for any event. We had so many hurdles during our planning process with postponing and COVID restrictions and Alicia always made me feel taken care of and covered 1000%. She is AMAZING!! The location and convenience to everything made our whole wedding weekend seamless. All of our guests have not stopped raving about The Mills House! The food was fabulous! The team that worked during our wedding was so wonderful and friendly. We had a blast with them all night! I seriously can’t say enough good things about The Mills House venue and team. Thank you for making our wedding feel like a magical dream. You all are THE BEST!!

    Alicia makes all dreams come true!

    I would highly highly recommend this venue. Working with Alicia made the stress of planning so much easier. As a COVID bride who’s wedding was postponed two weeks before it was to happen, I know first hand of their flexibility, safety, and ability to cope with stressors that may get thrown their way. If you want a truly magical night that will have your guests enjoying every minute, know that this is a perfect venue option!

    Gorgeous Venue

    We held our reception at the Mills House and we are so happy that we did! Stunning venue, amazing food, friendly staff. I worked with Alicia for a year planning the reception and she was fantastic. She answered every email and phone call and never made me feel like I asked silly questions. I wouldn't change one thing about the reception. It was flawless.
