The Mill was a great place to have my wedding :) it's what I always dreamed of when I was a little girl. I'd do it over and over if I could :)

I had a wonderful experience with Mission Mill! Laura is very flexible and easy to get a hold of. I got married on the grounds and had our reception in the Dye room. Very nice for smaller weddings. Everyone was very helpful and made it a positive experience!

The Mission Mill was the perfect place for our wedding! We used the outdoor space for our ceremony and the Dye house for our reception, and both worked beautifully for us. Laura, the on-site coordinator, was very helpful for all of our questions and was willing to work with our particular needs. Overall, we had a really great wedding and the location and value of the Mill could not have worked out better for us!
Both the Dye House and the Spinning Room are two locations in the Salem area that I love taking wedding cakes to. The backdrops are historical and eyecatching, and the Mission Mill staff is a joy to work with. They work really hard to make sure the venue is perfect for its clients.
