Testimonials

“ We fell in love with this place after our first tour. Lisa is an amazing chef, everyone told us how awesome the food was. She also helped us build a custom menu with dim sum, flat breads, grilled oysters, beef tenderloin with a compound butter, chicken Marbella and Atlantic salmon. Pierre’s desserts were completely gone at the end of the night. We did a mix of cookies, macaroons, pastries, cheesecake, key lime pie. YUM. The coordinators are on top of their game. They were helpful with our seating charts, timeline and making sure people were where they were supposed to be. With our group, it was like herding cats and they got the job done. Also, if you visit you HAVE TO see the cottages. Rosalie is the sweetest lady you will ever meet and cottages are straight out of a magazine. I would recommend this wedding venue, or any event, to everyone I know. ”

“ The Mill at Fine Creek was a dream venue that I didn’t even know I needed! My now husband and I toured many venues across Northern VA and nothing really called out to us. We decided to make the two hour drive to the Mill and it was so worth it! It was so beautiful and elegant! Don’t even get me started on the GORGEOUS bridal suite! The entire staff at the Mill was professional, kind, easy going, accommodating, and helpful throughout the entire planning process. The in house coordinators Colleen and Stephanie were amazing and made my wedding day run so smoothly! If there were any hiccups throughout my wedding day I didn’t even notice! Lisa was fantastic to work with as my husband and I are so indecisive and she helped us build a menu that was delicious and loved by all of our guests. We had our wedding on a Friday night and were able to use the Miller’s Cottage for our rehearsal dinner the night before which was so convenient! All of our guests said The Mill was one of the most beautiful places they had ever seen! I am so so happy and thrilled with how my wedding turned out and I cannot recommend The Mill at Fine Creek enough for anyone looking for a beautiful venue with an excellent staff! Thank you guys! ”

Highly, Highly Recommend

“ From the very first tour at The Mill, my fiance and I were sold. They are truly the most accommodating and friendly staff I’ve ever met at a venue. The entire day went so smoothly and I can’t thank this team enough for that. Colleen and Stephanie were an absolute delight to work with and kept me calm throughout the whole process. Lisa is a magician in the kitchen and our guests are still raving about the food! Not to mention Pierre’s delicious, beautiful cake. Everything was so perfect, including the cottages and the beautiful grounds. I just can’t say enough good things about The Mill. I don’t have a single regret or complaint. I highly recommend this venue to everyone, you won’t be sorry. ”

Absolutely magical!

“ This was truly the venue of my dreams and I feel so lucky to live close by! It was like something out of a fairytale, which is pretty much what I was looking for. Both the grounds and the buildings were beautiful, clean, and pristine, the food (did I mention they have onsite catering and pastries??) was to die for and I swear I’d go to any restaurant of theirs if they had one, and the staff was so sweet and helpful all the time. We couldn’t have had our dream wedding without this place and for that we are forever grateful! ”

Wedding at the Mill

The Mill Takes Care of Everyone!

“ My son and daughter chose The Mill for their wedding venue – and I’m so grateful that they did so. The Mill showed professionalism and class, as well as the kind of warmth and hospitality that you would want for a special occasion. They were accommodating to the bridal party, their friends, and to our raucous family – and we are so appreciative! ”

Lee, 08/2019

“ The Mill at Fine Creek is easily one of the most beautiful wedding locations in Virginia – that much is obvious just from photos! However, as an event planner myself, what truly impressed me was their attention to detail. Given my profession, I knew exactly what I wanted/needed in a venue and the Mill far exceeded all requirements. We planned the wedding in less than six months, from halfway across the country, and it could not have been any easier, thanks to the staff at the Mill. The day of the wedding was PERFECT, despite mid-afternoon downpours, and if anything did go wrong, I have no idea because they must have taken care of it. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for gorgeous views, a full-service venue, great catering and an all-around great experience. ”

Dream Come True

“ Our entire experience with the Mill at Fine Creek was outstanding. Our daughter is a celiac, and the entire reception was gluten free. We had some individuals with other allergies and they handled it perfectly. The food was amazing and delicious. We were told by numerous guests it was the best wedding/event food they had ever had. The staff was courteous and beyond helpful. I HIGHLY recommend this venue. Thank you The Mill for such a wonderful wedding and reception! ”

Anne, 06/2019

Absolutely Perfect Venue

“ You cannot go wrong with The Mill at Fine Creek. They are really good at what they do and very efficient when it comes to weddings. I highly recommend this venue to anyone looking for a beautiful place with everything taken care of for you, and may different options to customize the space and make it unique to your wedding vision.

We knew we wanted a venue that had a very all-inclusive feel where we wouldn’t have to worry about booking a ton of other vendors (i.e. in house catering, in house alcohol (with a wide variety of local selections), tables/chairs/linens provided, on site lodging, and a place that wasn’t far outside the Richmond area.

We were extremely satisfied with the services provided, and loved working with Colleen and Lisa, and appreciate all of their help. Our wedding was absolutely perfect, and we got SO many compliments about the venue and the delicious food. We wouldn’t have changed a thing about it! ”

Like a Fairy Tale

“ My daughter had her wedding at the Mill in May 2019. I cannot say enough about this venue. From the very first time my daughter showed me the venue and I saw they included the tablecloths and votives I was excited! Then when we all got there the beauty of the venue is breath taking! This place has the planning process down with such precision and from Lisa, the Owner, the Coordinators, the Baker and all the Staff, the Professionalism and attention is amazing! I have had so many of the guest say it was the most beautiful venue they have ever been! I’m a bit sad that the wedding is over because I’ll miss going there! Another amazing aspect is the bridal party, families and guest can stay at the cottages which are located right on property! Rosalie in the Provisions is amazing! And, the rooms and take away basket breakfast is top notch! Do not leave without checking if they have some of their homemade salted caramels! Definitely add the Mill to your list to check out. I’m sure you will get that feeling as we all did when we first saw this venue! ”

“ The Mill at Fine Creek is an absolutely stunning wedding venue and our wedding was absolutely perfect because of our choice to get married here. First, the location and grounds…one of our top priorities was having a somewhat secluded and private location for our wedding. The mill delivered as you have private use of the grounds and there are no other weddings on your day. It was great that our guests were able to explore around during our wedding and we didn’t feel cramped or constrained to one room at the reception. We also really wanted for our ceremony to be outside and the ceremony options at the mill are to die for. The new pergola area is gorgeous and we made a change from our original plan to get married by the creek. The set up at the mill also makes your wedding day a breeze. We didn’t have to worry about shuttling people from place to place for hair/makeup, pictures, etc. Everything happened all at one place. This also made the end of the night and clean up so much easier. The staff had taken our extra cake to the Miller’s Cottage and we had all our items moved out in 5 minutes tops. They were organized, efficient, and an absolute pleasure to work with. The people. I probably can’t say enough about the people. Everyone at the Mill was so amazing to work with. From the initial meeting to the menu and details, Colleen and the team were easy to work with and responsive for every detail. I was planning the wedding from Memphis so having someone flexible to meeting times and email made my life so much easier. I would highly recommend hiring the day-of-coordination from the Mill. I didn’t have to worry about a thing on our wedding day. Colleen was phenomenal and took care of every detail – and even seamlessly dealt with all my questions and last minute freak outs. The Food. Better than we had even imagined. The food was great at our tasting but even better at our wedding. If you want an amazing wedding dinner, go to the Mill. They are so flexible to orchestrate your menu however you would like. I’m a side dish queen – so it was important to me that we had great side dishes – and the mashed potatoes at our wedding were the best I’ve had in my life. My family and guests raved the next day about them – and we are some meat and potato Midwesterners. The only negative part is that they don’t let you stay forever! ”

“ Our wedding was perfect thanks to Colleen, Lisa, Stephanie, and the entire staff at The Mill at Fine Creek. Every detail we wanted was thoughtfully taken care of — from the dietary restrictions of our guests (and the bride!) to helping me pin my bustle and ensuring that we had sturdy chairs to dance the Hora. The Mill was the first venue I visited and I knew it was the right choice from the moment I saw it in person. Our guests raved about the incredible custom menu and the intimate family atmosphere (we had around 87 guests). It was a beautiful day and everyone had a fantastic time. Thank you! ”

Stephanie, 11/2018

Stop looking, have your wedding here.

“ The Mill is incredible. Every single person that works there makes you feel like you’re family. We felt so organized from the very beginning because of all of their help and attentiveness!! The venue itself is beautiful, all of the food is AMAZING, the beer from the brewery is awesome, honestly everything is perfect!!! We booked all the cottages on site for our family/wedding party as well and those could not be better either! HIGHLY recommend!! ”

The perfect wedding experience!

“ We had an absolutely amazing experience with The Mill at Fine Creek. We got married in October of 2018 and could not have asked for a better wedding. If you are considering having your wedding at the Mill but haven’t visited yet, one visit will decide for you. My husband researched venues all over Virginia and DC, but we both knew right away when we visited the Mill that it was right for us. It is a beautiful place and the pictures hardly do it justice.

The entire experience of preparing for our wedding with the Mill was seamless. Throughout the planning process the staff at the Mill was incredibly helpful, guiding us through the process and reminding us of things we hadn’t even thought of.

One of the biggest reasons we chose to have our wedding at the Mill initially was the flexibility we could have with our menu. Lisa is so easy to work with and is so creative in the kitchen. She made it so easy for us to choose our menu. The food was phenomenal! We loved every single dish, and Lisa even suggested a fun mid-dinner drink with champagne and sorbet that matched perfectly with our signature cocktail.

The word I would use to describe our wedding day is again “seamless.” You have access to the site pretty much all day, which gave us plenty of time to not feel rushed as we got everything set up. Throughout the morning and afternoon, the staff was available to help us with anything we needed. Special thanks to Hannah for being available and making us feel so welcome.

I would highly recommend spending the marginal extra amount to work with one of the Mill’s day-of-coordinators. Colleen was our day-of-coordinator and was nothing short of amazing. Every time I turned around, Colleen was ready for the next step of the night. From the start of the wedding on, I never stressed about what was coming next because Colleen was always organized and ready.

We loved having the beautiful cottages right next to the venue as well. Family and friends were able to stay there and simply walk back to their rooms after the wedding festivities. The brewery has some great food and we had a lot of fun with family and friends hanging out there the night before our wedding.

Our entire wedding experience was perfect. We couldn’t be happier and I am so glad we chose The Mill at Fine Creek!

P.S. We are a same-sex couple, and the Mill treated us with the utmost respect and made us feel completely comfortable. ”

The perfect wedding with a hurricane in the Carolinas!

“ The Mill at Fine Creek is a unique venue that gave my husband and I exactly what we were looking for in a wedding venue. We loved the ruins, the river, the cottages, and the brewery. Their team was extraordinary from start to finish and made our jobs easy. Our parents didn’t help with the planning so we took on the whole wedding on our own. Colleen and Stephanie were friendly and responsive, and helped us every steps of the way and answered all our questions. The week of our wedding a hurricane was heading our way and ended up hitting the Carolinas instead. Their team was prepared in case of everything; umbrellas, backup generator, etc. They reassured me and we talked about all the possible outcomes. My husband and I ended up having the wedding of our dreams, outside in the ruins. It was perfect and I know that the Mill’s team’s hard work was all behind it. The food was amazing and all my vegan/vegetarian friends were thrilled by the options offered. Thank you for the support, help and the hard work. We would recommend this amazing venue to anyone. ”

Elizabeth, 09/2018

“ My husband and I knew The Mill at Fine Creek was where we wanted to have our wedding from the second we drove onto the property. The cottages were being built at the time, but we had our close friends and family make reservations from the blueprints alone.

Fast forward 18 months to our big day…the weather was hot and the skies were becoming threatening, but Colleen and staff stood ready should we have to make a last minute switch from holding our ceremony in the pergola to inside. Fortunately, the weather held out until the reception where our guests enjoyed delicious food and drinks. Many commented it was some of the best food at a wedding they had ever had. We had a special family recipe we requested be made and served with the passed hors d’oeuvres. Lisa and her team executed upon this beautifully.

The Mill takes great care to make your wedding planning easy and pays attention to even the smallest detail. Following the wedding, my husband realized his cuff link had broken and one side lost. He was disappointed, as he had them made as a keepsake of our day, but knew we’d never find the lost piece. When we arrived home and began unpacking our things, there was an envelope containing the missing piece. It’s as though Colleen and staff were fairy godmothers quietly correcting anything that tried to go astray. If you’re on the fence about hiring their day-of coordinating services, we absolutely recommend them. Colleen and team not only made sure everything went off without a hitch, but she saw to it that my husband and I were taken care of, had time to eat, and even led us to portable air conditioning to cool down after the ceremony while she bustled my gown.

Rosalie at The Provisions Shop makes the cottage experience feel like you’re staying with a beloved family member. She’s so accommodating, genuinely kind, and a delightful presence who was adored by us and all of our guests.

The Mill is an enchanting venue with a top notch team! ”

Megan, 05/2018

“ Couldn’t be a better place to have a wedding. The weather was beautiful! The service was amazing and the food was DELICIOUS!!! Yummy, yummy, yummy!

This location is breath taking. So many places on site to be married. We got married by the water. My guest loved the view and the silent/loud enough sound of the water.

The staff, nothing but smiles and always helpful. They respond quickly to emails and always willing to help you make your best day the best!

They also have vendors they like working with but are willing to be outside the box. The food is a must from this location. Delicious! ”

Molly, 04/2018

“ The Mill at Fine Creek is a beautiful location to hold the ceremony and reception. The Mill has multiple outdoor locations for a wedding, and we opted to have the ceremony in the old mill ruins. It’s just gorgeous and charming. We particularly liked some photos of the mill ruins under the strings of lights. My wife and I fell in love with the site as soon as we arrived the first time.

You choose a venue because of the size and location of course, but you also need to feel comfortable with the people there that they can turn your vision into reality. The Mill’s team is first rate. The Mill offers a wedding coordinator service, which we highly recommend. We worked primarily with Stephanie and Lisa, the chef/owner. The other wedding coordinator Colleen was also involved in the planning. We found all of them to be friendly, helpful, flexible and accommodating throughout the planning process. When we had a DJ no-show crisis during the day of the wedding, they went way above and beyond to deal with it.

The food was excellent during the cocktail hour and dinner. Several guests commented that you don’t typically go to weddings expecting great food, but this food was exceptional. We agreed. We also had Pierre design and bake our wedding cake, and that was excellent too.

The Millers Cottage is a great place for the groomsmen to hang out during the day and also nice to stay for the night after the wedding so you don’t have to drive somewhere. It’s really a nice unexpected feature of the property. Try to reserve the guest cottages as well for key family members so they don’t have to travel after the wedding too.

Overall, we highly recommend the Mill because of the beautiful location, amazing team of people and great food! ”

Scott, 03/2018

“ I honestly cannot say enough good things about the Mill. From the first minute we visited, Colleen, Lisa, and Stephanie were 100% on top of everything. They were accommodating and communicative and extremely pleasant and receptive to our ideas and questions. Our guests RAVED about the food and at least 90% of our guests made a point of telling us that it was hands down the best wedding food they had ever had. Not only was everything delicious, it was different from the wedding food norm – Lisa sits down with the bride and groom and hand selects each item and cultivates the menu personally, so it is unique and reflects each couple’s personal tastes. Our guests also raved about the location – I don’t think anybody had been to the property before and they were blown away with how distinct and beautiful it was. I keep using the word unique because it is honestly the best way to describe the Mill. The property is extremely unique and so different from any other venue I have ever been to. There are tons of cute places for guests to explore and the property makes for great photos. We also lucked out because the cottages on property were ready for our wedding. They were AMAZING – each is super cute and beautiful and so much more special than a hotel. There are only 13, but they range from 1 to 3 bedroom cottages, so there is room for a lot of guests. It was so nice to be able to walk over to the cottages after the wedding and be able to spend some extra time with our friends in such a gorgeous environment. To top it off, breakfast in the morning at the cottages is amazing, all of our guests were blown away. The general store provides adorable picnic baskets filled with delicious breakfast. It was honestly the perfect wedding. The last thing to reiterate and really drive home is how great the service was. Our wedding party was sort of a mess. As our photographer said, it was like he was herding cats, and that is an honest and appropriate description. it would have been easy. ”

Tara, 11/2017

“ We knew The Mill was going to be our wedding venue the moment we walked in. The venue is absolutely gorgeous; unlike any other. The atmosphere is something you won’t find anywhere else. The staff demonstrated the utmost professionalism and flexibility, even when dealing with a busy bride like myself! Lisa (owner, head chef) was amazing. She assisted us in creating the most wonderful menu, while staying within our budget. Colleen and Stephanie (coordinators) were consistently available prior to our wedding, to help us plan the day of our dreams and nail down all of the important details. The day of the wedding, they ensured everything ran smoothly, and eased transitions throughout our day. Pierre did such a beautiful job with our cake. He was able to make our dream a reality; we were so impressed that it was everything we asked for. We were so grateful for all of the staff at this gorgeous venue. ”

Amy, 10/2017

“ I can’t say enough about this venue. The natural setting is stunning and well-kept and the staff is just the best. The planners they have are the sweetest and so organized. The food was to die for. Everything about our big day was perfect thanks to all of the staff at the mill. This place will always hold a special place in our hearts. ”

Laura, 04/2017

“ The Mill at Fine Creek is the ultimate wedding venue. They provide the best service and overall quality and the food is fantastic. We used their day-of coordinating services as well and they day couldn’t have been more stress-free. ”

Hannah, 04/2017

“ This was a perfect venue, period. We were planning everything out of town so only had a few times to actually go to the venue and talk to someone but Lisa and her staff were always accommodating; especially, Colleen, she was there answering every email and kept me updated throughout the planning. Actually, we were in correspondence for over a year if you think about it and every response I got back I knew there was time and care taken to find the answer. To have a reception and ceremony all in one place was ideal–we had all out of towners so this was crucial to know that no one would be getting lost or there was an lag time in between events. We even had our rehearsal dinner there in the cottage site which was the perfect intimate gathering. From start to finish, this venue is of high caliber. ”

Rachel, 03/2017

“ We just had our ceremony and reception at The Mill. We are eternally grateful for the service provided by the entire team. All of our guests made sure to tell us that this venue was absolutely amazing and it was the most beautiful venue they had ever been to. So thankful! ”
