Look no further! Monica and her staff are absolutely WONDERFUL to work with! Monica’s business etiquitte and professionalism is what helped our daughter and now son-in-law want to book Valley Mills even though the wedding barn was not complete. They booked on Monica’s vision and it is absolutely a perfect place for a beautiful wedding! Her reassurance and calmness that everything would work out was such a Blessing! Monica is a true business professional and not once did we ever feel like she is only in it for the “business”, she along with us, wanted it to be a perfect day for all. Michael and I could not have asked for a more perfect day for our daughters wedding! When you decide to book with Valley Mills (once you visit, I know you will), I pray you have a great wedding and a long healthy marriage just as I have prayed this for my children!

We could not have had a better wedding day thanks to Monica and her staff! If you are looking for professionalism, reassurance, quality, beauty, fun, and so much more, book with Valley Mills! My now husband and I visited the venue before the barn was built and decided to book because Monica made us feel like family from the second we stepped out of the car. The grounds are absolutely gorgeous and Monica and her team played a HUGE part in helping make our big day flow perfectly! I cannot thank and recommend them enough for their hard work, professionalism, and hospitality! You definitely won’t go wrong when choosing Valley Mills Farm for your special event venue!Sent on 10/08/2019

Beautiful and Flexible Space
We were very pleased with our daughters wedding held at Valley MIlls Farm. The grounds and event barn are beautiful and versatile. We were hoping for an outdoors wedding but at the last minute rain clouds moved in and we had to move our guests into the event barn for the ceremony. Monica and her crew quickly and safely helped our guests move into the event space and we held the ceremony indoors. The climate controlled event barn is spacious and bright with plenty of room for our 130 guests at tables plus a large isle and dance floor. The event staff was attentive, working behind the scenes to make things run smoothly. Tables, chairs and set up is included which makes decorating the space so simple. Monica even provided light refreshments in the bridal suite and grooms cottage. We had a delightful day at Valley Mills Farm!Sent on 08/07/2019
