The Old Mill is a hidden gem that can be found in the luscious woods of Rose Valley that simply has a charm to it like no other. I was married there in the summer with the hope of a wedding theme of Celtic-Woodland, and the venue itself looks something out of a fairytale. It is cost-efficient, incredibly beautiful on the inside and out, and is manned by the most talented group of caterers I have ever met. Conner Catering and the team at The Old Mill helped bring my elaborate theme to life and my 200 guests left feeling satisfied, happy, and in wonder at how they had never heard of this place before. As a bride, the Old Mill is incredible, but I also have a unique perspective on the caterers and the venue itself because I am also a wedding photographer. The caterers and their staff treat you like family...sophisticated family...and are prepared to wait on you hand and foot and make sure everything goes the way it should. I am greatly appreciative to Don, Taylor, Jeanne, and the entire Conner Team for their incredible hard work and their willingness to put up with one detail-crazy photographer/bride. THANK YOU!

We are in the process of finalizing our booking for the old mill for our 2018 wedding and we've been really happy with our experience so far :) Taylor has been wonderful with responding to our e-mails and answering all of our questions and we feel confident we're in great hands so far! We chose the old mill not only because it is just so gorgeous, but we really liked how conner catering was willing to work with us to design a wedding that was uniquely ours. We're looking forward to our big day and will update!Sent on 12/29/2016

We have been working with Conner Catering for years and they are simply the best. We have been doing wedding flowers since 1988 and when it was time for me to pick a location for my wedding it was hands down an easy decision. They had the cleanest kitchen, best food and best service I had ever seen. Many occasions I had seen Don Conner making sure every detail of a couples wedding was accomplished. This is a GREAT CATERER and a beautiful venue!
