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

Dream Wedding - COVID changes and all!
The Old Mill and the Conner Catering Team were a dream to work with. When we originally booked with them two years prior, we had anticipated a larger wedding with nearly 250 guest. As COVID hit, they did everything in their power and within safety to ensure we were still able to have our special day. Although we cut our guest list back, made multiple changes to ensure our guests were safe, the team at the Old Mill were very responsive, flexible and quick to make sure we could have the wedding we dreamed of. The day of events went beautifully and smoothly, and the food was amazing! Its a night I will never forget.
Leading up to the big day, we did have several meetings with Don, who walked us through all our options and costs to ensure our budget was met. I do wish they had an online payment option, just as we live farther away and I always worry mailing checks- but at the end of the day it was no issue and any worry I had was answered right away with reassure or confirmation of being received! We also were able to stock the bar ourselves, which I personally really liked as we had exactly what we wanted available.
I highly recommend the Old Mill to anyone looking for a wedding venue. The staff were some of the nicest people I have met during a wedding, and they put up with my very loud, enthusiastic family with grace and professionalism. Not to mention the venue itself is nothing short of stunning! Thank you again to the Old Mill and Conner Catering!Sent on 11/12/2020

Our dream wedding!
The Old Mill is a breathtaking venue! From the stone courtyard covered in ivy to the field right next to the stream this location and company was everything we hoped it would be and more. Conner Catering is a phenomenal company. Donald was always able to hop on a call with us or schedule a meeting if we needed to talk. Having a wedding in the middle of a pandemic is more than stressful but they took as much pressure and stress off of us as they could and on our wedding day it truly did not feel like we were in the middle of a pandemic! At the Old Mill you don't get a folder filled with different wedding packages, instead Donald tells you to run free with your wedding dreams and they will make it happen! We had a mishap with our wedding cake and it was completely ruined when it arrived at the venue and Donald took it upon himself to call every local bakery to find us a new cake. When he couldn't find one he himself ran out to Giant and bought a bunch of cakes to facet a new one for us! I didn't even know it wasn't our cake until my husband told me! And it was more beautiful than our original. My favorite part was that we could build our wedding and what we wanted it to look like. This truly was an amazing experience and we have already suggested this venue to a few of our engaged friends!Sent on 09/23/2020
The Old Mill's reply:Hello Carol!
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!
