Yarborough Mill is a very unique and beautiful wedding venue in Fairmount, Georgia. Step back in time as you walk the down the aisle in an outdoor ceremony surrounded by an abundance of mature trees and historic structures that surround the ceremony area, including an 1849 gristmill, Queen Anne Victorian home, the General Store and Barn. This property has it all, the rustic feel, with elegant undertones, and is steeped in history and natural beauty.
Facilities and Capacity
Come early and spend the day getting ready in our Bridal Cottage, the original farm house on the property which is also set up to accommodate up to 10 guests, perfect for the bridal party to celebrate together the night before your wedding day. Couples looking for an outdoor ceremony location will find The Pavilion to be a perfect setting. Nestled along Pine Log Creek, the vintage and rustic wood structure creates a beautiful backdrop for saying your vows in a pastoral waterfront setting. After the ceremony, your guests will gather in and around the historic Mill for your big celebration - a three-story mill with expansive two-story ceilings and hand hewn beams that span over 30 feet. The elevated stage area is ideal for entertainment or seating and your guests will also enjoy meandering the surrounding grounds which are beautifully landscaped. Honeymoon Suite in the Yarborough Mil can accommodate up to 150 guests.

Gorgeous Location to Photograph
Myself and my associate photographers have photographed weddings at this venue on three separate occasions, and I really love it for several reasons.
First, it's just beautiful and the options for gorgeous photos are unending between the four buildings on property and the vast outdoors with fields, woods, the river, and the long winding driveway/road. I'd be happy to share a full gallery with anyone of this location.
Another huge advantage of having a wedding here is that everything is onsite. Getting ready, ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Being able to do all of that at one location helps wedding days go so much smoother than having to travel between locations with a bridal party and trying to coordinate vendors to show up at different locations.
And I've found the venue owner Karen to be a real sweet heart in hospitality on the weddings I've photographed there. Personally I'd love to shoot here again and again. When couples and even friends of mine who get engage ask me for venue recommendations I always mention Yarborough Mill. ~ Chris Jones, Sowing Clover PhotographySent on 02/25/2020

Mother of the Bride
Yarborough Mills is a gem. Karen was very accommodating to the bride’s wishes for the tent placement and other arrangements. Due to very rainy, cold weather we had last minute concerns regarding parking and the honeymoon suite. Karen walked us through options and made it a worry free day. I highly recommend this rustic elegant venue.Sent on 04/15/2019
