Overall, we had such an amazing experience at the Mill Top! Our coordinator, Colleen, was extremely responsive and helpful through everything, especially as I was in grad school and working full time while trying to wedding plan on the side. Colleen was super organized and knew all the right questions to ask to ensure that we had covered all our bases and had exactly the options we wanted for both the ceremony and the reception. Her services were far above and beyond what I expected for this being an included service in the cost of the venue rentals. She kept in contact with all of our other vendors and coordinated the timeline perfectly so that my husband and I were truly able to enjoy the day without having worry if something was on-time or in the right place!
Our reception in the Loft was even more beautiful than I had imagined! The room was cozy and romantically lit with the twinkle lights across the ceiling beams. We had originally planned that we might have 150 guests attending (invited about 185) but came in at 135 and I'm definitely glad there were fewer people based on the size of the room!!! I think 150 might have worked, but it definitely would have felt a little crowded with much more than that!
We loved our Bridal suite and Man cave, I'm so glad we had those rooms for down-time throughout the day. My only real complaint (very minor) was that since we ordered beer & wine/champagne for our prep rooms through the venue (because of liquor license) that was all we got. I would have liked to have some non-alcoholic drinks and or water bottles provided (or at least suggested) through the venue. With so much going on, it's hard to remember that you might want water bottles in your prep rooms, but was the only thing I worried about day-of and ended up sending a bridemaid's husband to get orange juice and water.
