Mill College Chapel and the Reinhardt Alumni House were the PERFECT place to have our wedding!!! The Coordinator there was professional and responsive and answered all of our questions. The chapel is non-denominational and was so fitting for us. we ended up having a persian/american wedding there and it was just the most amazing space to host our ceremony. The alumni house was gorgeous, quiet, green, elegant, classy, comfortable. We couldn't have asked for a better venue and it was also so important for us to be able to support a progressive institution, and educational institution, and the city of oakland.

The Mills College Chapel was an absolutely perfect place for our wedding!! The chapel architecture is inspired by a japanese shinto design. the seats are organized in a circle and it is a non-denominational chapel. All of our guests told us that they LOVED the structure and loved being in a circle b/c they really felt like they were part of a community and part of our ceremony!!! the reception was held at the reinhardt alumnae house. there was an indoor space and and an outdoor space and the backyard was nestled amongst trees and SO GREEN! a perfectly lovely space to have a reception, dinner, and dancing! the venue was reasonably priced and the venue coordinator - Sandy Vavak - was extremely understanding and was so helpful with any questions we had about the venue! She really worked with us to make the day as least stressful as possible. Mills is a gorgeous place and the campus is so incredibly green and magical. i highly recommend it as a wedding venue and my now-husband and I were especially proud to support a progressive institution in a city we love, like Oakland.

We had our wedding ceremony here. This is the second time I've worked with Mills Conference staff and I have to say I was disappointed for a second time as well (not a good track record!). The venue itself is beautiful, affordable (although in terms of what the service was like it would be good to keep in mind the old adage 'you get what you pay for' here), unique and a decent location for us. The drawbacks: they NEVER called us proactively to check on anything for the wedding, and even though they got back to us fairly promptly I thought they had a lot of nerve setting up lots of fairly strict rules for us to follow but providing virtually NO SUPPORT for our wedding ceremony whatsoever. The conference center staffer who was our primary point person for our wedding only gave us a SECURITY GUARD'S phone number for assistance if anything came up during the ceremony! That didn't actually come in handy when we arrived for our rehearsal the night before the wedding and the sound equipment cabinet (which we desperately needed to rehearse the processional, ceremony and recessional, which were all music-heavy) was locked! It took a good 45 minutes for us to find someone to unlock it for us, and then she demanded that we give the cabinet key back (I still have no idea why my groom didnt' just keep it), and then one of my friends had to call the next morning before the wedding to ensure that it would be opened again for us and the event staffer (who I believe may be the head of conferences at Mills) told us, 'Oh, I realized that I should've left it with you all since you're event is today.' Like, DUH!

Never never again will I recommend Mills without SERIOUS reservations. Unfortunate, because the campus is beautiful and very close to the freeway. Also, it's fairly cheap, but again, you get what you pay for!
