    We are so glad we picked The Laboratory Mill!

    From the moment that we booked the Laboratory Mill for our wedding, we had a wonderful experience! Linda was always willing to work with us and answer all the questions we had. During our planning, she was always organized and prepared, especially as we got closer to the wedding day. Having our wedding at the Mill was a dream come true, and we are so glad we chose it. Everything was so beautiful, and the staff went above and beyond to make sure our special day went smoothly. We would highly recommend the Laboratory Mill to anyone!

    Laboratory Mill is OUT OF THIS WORLD! Beautifully decorated, unique, the staff is overly organized and flexible. An unforgettable experience!

    The Mill was my second choice due to other friends sharing their wedding experience at this location. However, the staff strives to provide an unforgettable experience for everyone involved. Non the less the Laboratory Mill set themselves apart from every other venue. I knew I would marry the love of my life at the beautiful Laboratory Mill. The staff provided a unique and incomparable experience for my husband and me. I will remember our wedding day for many years to come. I am forever grateful to have had the experience we did with the Laboratory Mill. The staff was there for ever beckoning need. They were flexible with decor, the number of wedding guest, catering, music and more. If the wedding party or guest needed anything they were there with enthusiasm and a smile on their face. If you’re indecisive about anything they have ideas and a vision to share with you. The staff is knowledgeable and willing to help in any way possible. Which makes coordinating and enjoying your day a breeze. Did I mention the photography views? Holy cow.... every angle of the Mill is stunning. You do not need to worry about getting the perfect picture. The original brick walls, huge windows, vintage appeal, rustic feel and open space make every picture perfect for the bride and groom as well as the guests. Overall our experience was beyond what I could have imagined.

    Wedding Venue

    The Laboratory Mill was the smartest decision we made during wedding planning. As soon as we booked them, Linda made sure we were comfortable with everything! They responded to every question I had within a few hours of asking! Not only is the venue itself absolutely breathtaking, the people that work their take such pride in it. You can tell they know how to make each couple’s wedding a dream come true.

    Perfect in every way

    The staff at the mill are very accommodating and willing to help in any way to make your event the best that it can be. We hosted the rehearsal dinner in the card room, and the wedding was the next day upstairs. The rehearsal dinner theme was photography since my son is a videographer and they both love cameras!

    Thank you for the feedback and for sharing the pictures! We just love Susannah and Chris - so much talent and creativity! Your use of the Card Room for the rehearsal dinner was very well planned and laid out.

    Mother of the bride- Karen Greeson

    A brides dream. Are you looking for pure splendor in a wedding venue? Look no further. The Labatory Mill, standing boldly along the South Fork River, is simply stunning. The majestic views of water rushing over rocks is a photographers dream. Enterning the historic mill, you are drawn to its beauty. The Card Room, located downstairs takes you back in time. This venue is perfection! The staff? What an outstanding group of people. Kind, flexible, friendly, professional, knowledgeable , with one goal in mind, making a brides dreams come true. As the mother of the bride, I left feeling like I had gained a new family. From the depths of my heart, I say,” Thank you.”

    Eggers' Wedding, February 9, 2019

    When our daughter got engaged, we immediately made an appointment to visit the Laboratory Mill because of the fantastic reviews, and based on the pictures, this venus was exactly what we were looking for! We made an appointment with Linda who we were beyond amazed! We LOVED her! The experience we had with everyone we came in contact with there was very professional and extremely accommodating. They set everything up exactly as we wanted for the day of the wedding. Our host for Friday night and Saturday was Jamie. He and the other staff were on top of everything making sure we had exactly what we needed and many times going above and beyond.

    We also used the Card Room for our rehearsal. It is such a quaint space and making it so nice not to have to move to a different location.

    As for our experience...I could NOT have asked for more! I would give them a 100 stars if that were an option!

    I cannot express enough how fantastic the entire staff at the laboratory mill had been for my husband and I throughout the entire wedding process. Linda is always just a phone call away and is happy to assist in anyway she can from throughout the entire process. The staff the day of the wedding was very attentive and friendly throughout the entire day and night. We had a hurricane on our wedding day, and it was still the most perfect day thanks to the amazing staff, and fantastic vendors. The venue is stunning but very reasonable for all that comes along with it and the amazing service that is provided!!

    We felt like we were living in a fairy tale during our daughter’s wedding on Sunday, October 1, 2017. Laboratory Mill is a romantic, beautiful venue with rich history. The view from the windows of the flowing water is unique and charming. The owners and staff are kind, professional, genuine people and we can’t say enough good things about them. From the day of our tour to the day of the wedding, they couldn’t have been more helpful. They were always one step ahead of us for all of our needs. I also used their recommended vendors and couldn’t have been more pleased. Thank you so much for making Emily and Ryan’s dreams come true for a perfect wedding day!

    I couldn't imagine a more beautiful day. During the wedding planning process, we worked with Linda at the Laboratory Mill. She is not only the most genuine, sweetest, caring person I've ever met, but she is also incredibly knowledgeable about all of the in's and out's of the wedding industry. We booked the Mill at an incredibly low price because we had our wedding on a Sunday in February (highly recommend) and I never once felt that I lost any special experience by doing so. The entire Laboratory Mill team was there the morning of my wedding and happy to assist in any way. They made me feel like a princess and from parking to the last dance, everything was seamless. I planned and designed the entire wedding by myself, and it was so refreshing to have a whole team of people dedicated to making my day the best ever! Linda was incredibly accommodating and let me in the venue early in the morning to set up, assisted with anything that I needed help with, was available for any needs during the ceremony or reception, helped my vendors (catering and DJ) get situated, and handled clean-up. I can't wait to find a reason to have events here in the future! I love this team of people!
