Our wedding ceremony and reception took place at Mill 1 in Sept 2018. The venue and service exceeded expectations in all regards; specifically:
1. The beauty of the venue is exceptional and stands alone and needs little to no additional decor.
2. The manager's (Julies) communication tracking email system is thorough and keeps everyone posted on all communication.
3. Expectations and Options are clearly spelled out in writing and available right at the get-go.
4. The venue was set up exactly as requested on the day of the event.
5. The restrooms were clean!
6. The Mill 1 staff work very closely with the other vendors. Trust them on the vendors they recommend - everything was amazing! Overall - Very happy and highly recommend.

Mill One is a perfect venue, plain and simple. Extremely versatile space that will work for any type of wedding or event. The space speaks for itself, so for our casual wedding reception, we really did almost no decorating and it was still just stunning. The staff were professional, responsive, and friendly. 10/10!Sent on 06/08/2018

Mill 1 was the perfect space for our wedding. We fell in love with the space and loved that there was so much freedom in how we used the space. We had a larger wedding with 200 guests but everyone sat comfortably for the reception. We highly recommend this amazing, budget friendly venue. You will not be disappointed!Sent on 11/06/2017

Mill 1 is a beautiful and modern setting for a wedding, and the pictures online do not do justice for how beautiful it is! When I showed my now husband pictures of the venue I chose he liked it, but when I took him there before the wedding he was blown away at how amazing the building is. The staff is extremely easy to work with and so very helpful, they really know what they're doing! Also with everything we had included the cost was very affordable compared to most other venues we looked at. Absolutely in love with Mill 1!

We had a winter wedding at Mill One and absolutely LOVED it! It was a great combination of rustic and modern. The atmosphere was perfect for the time of year and despite the early sunset the pictures came out amazing! We went through a couple event planners but were very happy we had Maggie in the end. She was very responsive to all our emails and endless questions and flexible for set and clean up. The day of our reception went very smoothly with Maggie and Casey's help. All the staff were very friendly and easy-going. We continue to receive compliments on the venue and space. Would DEFINITELY recommend it to anyone!!!

Mill 1 was perfect for our event. We had the most amazing wedding thanks to the help of the staff. Everyone I spoke to from Mill 1 was fantastic. Michelle helped me plan out the original details and then towards the end of planning I worked with Maggie, Sarah, and Hannah- who actually was the event manager the night of my wedding. Everything went smoothly and I didn't have to worry about anything. I would highly recommend this venue to any other bride looking for the perfect western mass wedding!!

Michelle and her staff were so great. They made my event go off without a hitch. They were very completely amazing. It was snowing during my event so they made sure that all of the parking lots were plowed so people could arrive and depart easily. Michelle went to great lengths to make sure everything was perfect for me. The level of service you receive at Mill One is unmatched.

We had a small destination wedding in California and came back home to have a big party with all of our friends and family. We knew we didn't want a typical "reception" space and we both fell in love with Mill 1! The atmosphere inside is absolutely gorgeous, with the brick walls, huge windows and wood floors. All of our guests raved about how cool and unique the place was and we couldn't be happier with our choice. Michelle was great to work with and I loved the bartenders on staff the night of our party, they were awesome. I would highly recommend having an event here!!
Darcy · Married on 10/04/2013
As soon as I saw the venue i fell in love with the space. My husband was equally impressed with the beauty and originality of the space. Leading up to the event Michelle was very helpful and assertive. She was there to answer any questions we had. She really went above and beyond and offered her suggestion in a lot of the decorations. The day of our wedding Michelle and her staff were wonderful!! They were there from start to finish to assure the day went as smooth as possible. It was by far the best day of my life and i wouldnt change a thing!! My husband and i are very thankfull to Open Square for making the day so special!! Thanks to all!! Darcy and Scott Auclair

We couldn't have picked a better place for our wedding reception! Gorgeous venue and you can truly make it how you want it to look as they allow you to decorate. Michelle was so easy to deal with and always quick to respond to any questions. So pleased with how our day went and would highly recommend this venue!

My wedding at Mill One was absolutely phenomenal. There is no vendor in the area that provides such a unique event space as Mill One does. Because of the high brick walls and beautiful wood floors, you are able to transform the space into your own unique vision. The pricing is incredibly affordable for both the event space, bar pricing as well as Michelle's professional services in coordination.
Michelle was extremely professional, flexible and so helpful with ensuring all vendors were working together and were on time so everything went smoothly. I did not have to worry about a thing the day of the wedding as she was there to take care of it all.
In addition, she allowed my two pugs to be in the wedding and due to a mixup with our hotel, was graciously accomodating when they could not be brought home right away. This was so important to us and we loved that they could be there to celebrate.
I would reccommend this venue for any bride that wants to make their day into the vision they have always dreamed of. I received so many compliments on the space and guests continue to rave about how unique and beautiful the venue was. One guest even commented that they didn't feel like we were in western ma because it was such a unique experience that close to home! Thank you Michelle!

The staff at Open Square was willing to be flexible with our schedule for set up time. The bar services was excellent and our guests were able to have drinks without waiting
