The number of people we can accommodate will also change, depending on whether you are using a stage, or whether you are hosting an event like a trade show.

    Our rentals are based on a 5 hour time block. If you are holding your ceremony at the venue you get an additional hour, 6 hours total.

  8. Is the food catered in or is it done in house?

    The Mill Event Center does not provide its own catering services, so we will work with you to find one that meets your needs. We welcome the caterer of your choice, or we can give you some suggestions. We’ve worked hard to provide the amenities your caterer will need, including your caterer’s use of our licensed, commercial kitchen for holding, warming and serving your food. We even provide serving glassware (with a purchased beverage package), pitchers, trays and tray stands for your caterer’s convenience. Due to health regulations, you cannot prepare your own food, but we will happily work with you to find a caterer for your event. Or, if you prefer, you are welcome to prepare your food at home and bring it to the event. We even have space to park food trucks with electrical hook ups.

    Included in your venue rental comes tables, chairs, standard linens and all formal glassware. We do have china plate settings available rent for an additional cost.

  13. Does your facility have a bridal room and groom room to allow the wedding parties to prepare themselves?

    You bet.  Every bride needs her privacy! We actually have two private rooms that are included in your rental fee.  Both rooms have a private restroom and private, outside entrance.

  14. Can I move things around and decorate to suit my purposes or does everything need to remain as is?

    We’ve found that many people choose not to add decorations because the event space is so beautifully decorated already, but you are welcome to customize the space to create the atmosphere you envision! If you are able to drop off your décor within 5 days prior to wedding day we will set and decorate the room for you at no extra cost. When you arrive that day everything will be complete. We also have a wide selection of décor you are able to use at no extra cost.

  15. Do you have decoration guidelines that must be followed?
