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!
