We fell in love with The Old Mill after our first visit back in 2018 and wasted no time booking our date because we knew we had found the PERFECT place to say "I Do". From the lush secluded meadow, to the babbling creek and ivy covered stonework, we were beyond excited for the beauty this venue packs into such a small footprint. The photo opportunities are endless!! We spent the next 2 years planning our dream wedding, which went surprisingly smooth (for someone as unorganized as myself). Don, Taylor and the rest of the Conner Catering team made the whole process unbelievably easy and enjoyable, and were available at the drop of a hat for any questions (which was a lifesaver, because we had a ton of questions!) When covid hit, I think we felt every emotion we could feel, and really didn't know what to do. Don and Taylor did an amazing job keeping us in the loop with all the state and federal regulations and changes, and helped us calm down and plan a dream wedding in these uncertain times. At a time when the wedding industry was turned on it's head, we never once felt like the Conner Catering team were unprepared for the challenges thrown at them! When our big day came we were beyond blessed with the most beautiful fall day and in the end were able to still have our dream wedding at our dream venue, The Old Mill! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU, amazing experience, amazing people and amazing venue!Sent on 10/29/2020

Beautiful Wedding - Amazing Venue
My husband and I had our wedding here May 30th, 2021. Donald Conner and his staff are seriously incredible, he is a perfectionist with a high attention to detail. All of the staff from his assistant Christine, his bartenders, waitstaff and everyone in between were so kind, helpful and seemed to truly love what they do, which after an uncertain year, was really refreshing and welcome on our wedding day!
Don was really flexible and helpful when it came to the ongoing changes of Covid restrictions, we met 3+ times due to the changing restrictions and Don did not bat an eye, and kept us personally up to date and gave advice along the way. We also had the coldest weekend in May, which also caused more logistical changes the day before, and again, Don gave his opinion, but also supported our decisions and helped with last minute changes and logistical updates, keeping us at ease with the insane weather!
My wedding day was truly the best day of my life, due in part to Don and his awesome staff. Every guest we spoke to said it was the best food they had ever had at a wedding, and noted the upbeat personalities and constant high level of service through out the night as well, in addition to the gorgeous venue and grounds. I would recommend The Old Mill to anyone looking! Thank you again!

The Perfect Venue
Due to covid, our entire wedding changed over the course of a few months. The venue was extremely flexible and incredibly helpful with keeping up with health guidelines. They went from being our reception venue (indoors) to being our ceremony and reception space (entirely outdoors). Not only is the staff wonderful, but the site is exceptionally gorgeous. Everyone complimented how beautiful the scenery was and our photos turned out absolutely amazing.
The only downside to this venue for those who are looking for a late night party is that Rose Valley is a residential area that has very strict alcohol and music policies. If you are looking for a late night party reception, this is not the spot for you.
I would 100% recommend this space to all of my friends. It was perfect.Sent on 12/01/2020
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!
