What We Offer

Our Mill family stretches across the property, from the Mill to the Cottages to the Brewery. A team of a variety of professionals, we are motivated by excellence and a passion for doing what we love. Our many years of experience have prepared us to anticipate your needs and make sure you are taken care of on your special day.

PICK YOUR DAY

Weddings may be booked on a Friday, Saturday, or a Sunday. Each day has its own unique features and offers flexibility to accommodate your vision and budget. For those looking for a more intimate ceremony with 30 or less guests, we also offer Elopement options Mondays - Wednesdays.

Ceremony & Grounds

We offer three unique outdoor ceremony sites, all nestled within our gorgeous gardens. Whether you choose the original mill stone ruins, the rustic handcrafted pergola, or the bucolic creekside spot, each offers the ideal place for your exchange of vows. In case of inclement weather, there is no need to worry. A change of plans can be made up to two hours before your ceremony, allowing staff to easily convert our venue’s main room into an indoor ceremony site.

Getting Ready

We are committed to taking care of you on your special day. Relax as you get ready in both our salon-inspired Suite (equipped with several salon stations, full-length mirrors and bathroom), and Miller’s Cottage (furnished with comforts of home, such as a full kitchen, couches, TV, one bedroom, and 1 ½ baths). An appointed member of our staff will make sure you have everything you need as you get ready throughout the day.

Our culinary team is here to create the perfect menu for your celebration. Working one-on-one with you to plan a menu unique to your wishes, we welcome traditional family recipes, new dishes, and can accommodate any specific dietary needs. Always “from scratch” and using only the freshest ingredients, our chefs will create a meal that you and guests will never forget.
