The Cotton Mill made our wedding absolutely PERFECT. We looked at several different venues, but as soon as we walked into the Cotton Mill we knew it was the one. Everyone who attended the wedding could not stop gushing about how gorgeous the building was and its uniqueness. We were blessed by beautiful weather to give us an outdoor ceremony in the dye room, and the large event space was wonderful for our group of 240 for the reception. We had a band and lots of fun tables set up, and there was still plenty of room to move! I highly recommend this space if you're looking for something rustic/industrial and amazing!

The Cotton Mill was a dream come true wedding venue for us. We wanted something that was a blend of industrial with rustic, and as soon as we saw this place we knew it was "it" for us. Darla and Erin were so easy to work with, and they made everything smooth and easy for us. Erin was also extremely responsive throughout the process. On the day of the event we had to switch gears and bring eventing indoors because a massive storm appeared out of nowhere, but Erin and my DOC worked together to make the indoor ceremony beautiful and romantic - we are actually glad it rained because the pictures against the rain streaked windows are incredible! We had such a memorable experience with everyone involved, and we are so glad we chose to work with the Cotton Mill for this memorable day.

I absolutely love this venue. I wish I could give more stars in the overall rating for the Cotton Mill. I had an exceptional experience working with Erin, Darla, and Maggie at this venue. The venue was absolutely perfect for my dream rustic wedding. Erin was always very helpful and responsive, she allowed me and my wedding coordinator to come up on multiple occasions to look around and evaluate different aspects of the venue. Erin also was a big help during the rehearsal and the day of the wedding helping to coordinate the flow with my wedding coordinator. We also used Maggie as our bar tender, she was awesome! We had a specialty drink that we had been wanting to use, one I found the recipe online I gave it to her and she made all the calculations in order that I would know how much of each ingredient to provide for the drink. All of the wedding guests were in awe of the beauty of this venue. My husband and I had such a wonderful experience and this venue made our day so special and memorable.

We had our ceremony outdoors in the Dye Room and reception inside the Cotton Mill event space. Both locations were perfect and we wouldnt change a thing about the venue. The staff was easy to work with and wedding guests loved the venue. It was a gorgeous backdrop for all of our great wedding photos! I would highly recommend this venue to any bride.

We loved the Cotton Mill for our daughter's wedding! Darla, Erin, Maggie, and Pablo were so helpful!! The place was beautiful and perfect for outdoor and indoor options. We had the ceremony outside and the reception inside. We decided to use the vendors on their recommended list and were extremely pleased. It was a beautiful night, and we are so thankful for everyone's help and support.

We could not have been more pleased having chosen The Cotton Mill for our ceremony/reception. Every interaction with the staff was both professional and positive- and after numerous trips to the venue with a never-ending list of questions for the staff, we felt we had made new friends as well (especially my mom :) )! The welcomed us each visit with a genuine desire to help us make sure this would be my dream day. The venue itself is very versatile and was beautifully transformed. Thank you, Darla, Erin, and Maggie- for your patience, help, and hard work! We enthusiastically recommend this venue and can't wait to see what the future has in store for The Cotton Mill.

We chose the Cotton Mill because of its uniqueness, our ability to bring in our own alcohol, and overall flexibility of what we could do with the inside for the reception. We had our ceremony in the dye room and our reception in the event hall, and both turned out absolutely beautifully!! We got countless numbers of compliments from our guests as to how beautiful the venue was and how much they enjoyed the space and how we decorated it. It really is just a unique and beautiful space both outside for the ceremony and inside for the reception.

There was construction going on to the facility prior to our wedding in the reception area and in the parking lot. While we were kept in the loop as they were making changes as to what was being done, we were not made aware that any construction was going to take place at the time of our booking (our contract said that there could be construction done on the dye room outside, but didn't mention the reception area). What they did turned out well, but it did make us a bit nervous throughout, as we didn't know that was a possibility when we booked. The other thing to note is that despite us following all the instructions laid out on our contract, and us writing a separate email to confirm it was okay to use biodegradable confetti, they did keep our deposit, saying the confetti was difficult to clean up. We wrote back to Darla explaining to her (and showing proof of our purchase of biodegradable confetti), she did return our deposit back. So it was rather upsetting to get the email on our honeymoon that we weren't getting our deposit back, but they did make it right in the end.

All in all, I would certainly recommend the venue - It's a beautiful place both in-person and in the pictures we took. And being able to bring in your own alcohol saves a lot money...

Thanks for giving us a gorgeous place to get married!!!!

We chose The Cotton Mill for our ceremony and reception and could not imagine having our special day anywhere else! We fell in love with the uniqueness and flexibility of the space. With every turn you make through the space it becomes more and more unique and amazing. Darla and Erin are very accompanying and willing to go above and beyond to make sure that it is everything you could have ever hoped and dreamed for. The space makes for beautiful pictures to capture all of the memories of your special day. They also offer beautiful decor to rent which makes it a lot easier to accommodate the daunting task of hauling decorations back and forth to the venue. There are not enough words in the world to express all of the love and gratitude we have for The Cotton Mill and their staff.
WR LOVE THE COTTON MILL!
