    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!

    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.
