Jakob Garner (owner of The Mill at Yellow River and Beyond Details) created the perfect wedding for our daughters. Our older daughter was married at the Mill in 2014. She wanted an elegant and romantic look. Beyond Details delivered!!! The ceremony was held outdoors in the garden area fronting onto the Yellow River. The red brick facade of the Mill was the perfect backdrop. The flowers were lovely in shepherd's hooks hanging on the aisles. Inside, for the reception, long tables were spectacularly decorated with beautiful florals, candles and votives. Cafe tea lights and cream linen long drapes were strung across the ceiling to create a romantic, magical aura. The food was outstanding. When our younger daughter became engaged, we sought Jakob out again to create another perfect wedding!! The couple was married inside amidst a stunning display of golden branches, crystal orbs with tea lights, cafe lights, cream linen drapery, large iron floor lanterns with candles. Flower petals were strewn along the wedding aisle. It looked like a scene from The Great Gatsby. Cocktail hour was outdoors and butlers passed o'er d'heuvres while bartenders seamlessly filled guests orders. The Beyond Details staff "flipped" the room, indoors, to create a stunning visual with long tables outfitted in champagne linens and glitter-gold table runners. Cafe lights, golden branches and glass orbs ran throughout the room. The lighting was soft and warm and created a magical atmosphere.The food was outstanding. The dance floor was accented by a "club/bistro" seating area. Everything about this wedding was excellent and well-thought out. I would recommend, WITHOUT HESITATION, Jakob, Todd, Kaylyn, and the rest of this outstanding staff to anyone who is looking to create a memorable event.

We fell in love with this venue the second we saw it. From the old fashion architecture style the garden right next to the river and the waterfall. They have amazing rooms for the bride and groom for the wedding party to get ready in and the guys get an Xbox to pass the time while they're waiting on the girls to finish. They have incredible communication skills always get back to you about questions quickly and they are all super sweet! 10 out of 10 would recommend it to anyone! ??

I can't even start to express how much I loved my experience at The Mill at Yellow River. From the moment I walked in to meet with Jakob, Kaylin, and the rest of their amazing team, I felt like I was their most important client (and I know they had many other weddings they were planning). My older sister got married at the same venue 2 years before me and her experience was exactly the same. They take care of you from the very start until all the wedding fun is over. I would recommend them to any and everyone. The setting is beautiful and Jakob designed my wedding so beautifully that it literally brought me to tears. I had coworkers telling me for several weeks following that it was the most beautiful wedding they had ever been to. Don't hesitate to book with this venue! You will not regret it!

Our wedding was just fabulous! The venue is breath taking inside and out. It is the perfect combination of rustic and elegant. The entire staff at the Mill at Yellow River was so nice, helpful, caring, and hard working. They made everything absolutely perfect. Beyond Details has amazing props to rent and they run promotions frequently on them, which is great. They also did our catering, and the food was amazing! Jakob made our wedding day run so smoothly. He absolutely brought my vision to reality and he is so good at his job. I can't say enough great things about the people and the venue, we are so glad we did it at the Mill and we have the most amazing pictures to last us forever and remind us of the perfect day!

Looking back on my experiences throughout my wedding, I could not have been more pleased with The Mill at Yellow River. Brandy is simply an amazing person to work with. I felt complete reassurance from the moment I began working with her. She is professional, personable, friendly, helpful, and VERY good at her job. The day of my wedding was absolutely flawless. I can’t say I had one single negative instance that occurred throughout the entire day. We were able to relax in their gorgeous bridal loft all day and had three amazing attendants at our beck and call (one even personally helping me with my dress during my couple’s pictures which was a HUGE support). The entire staff was fantastic. The food, AMAZING. I still have guests raving about it to me and my family. We were also given a "to go" meal which was wonderful to eat in our hotel room that night. The venue itself was exactly as I pictured it would be. They made sure everything was perfect; from the beautiful light fixtures to the amazing bar setup and our sweetheart table and I can’t thank the staff enough for that. The Mill truly did a wonderful job. They are worth every penny and I would recommend them to anyone.

The Mill at Yellow River was the perfect location for our wedding! It was absolutely gorgeous. I didn't like the distance from the city of Atlanta (and some of my guest got a bit lost); however, it was completely worth it. The large windows, brick interior, loft style, outdoor area (patio and garden) and river backdrop were beautiful (which made for wonderful photos). Guests immediately loved the place when they pulled up to the venue. I was set on getting married outside; however, because of rain the morning of the wedding and the wet grounds, our ceremony was held inside and cocktail hour was outside on the patio. Even though my heart was set on everything being outside (other than the reception), it was all beautiful and perfect.

The bridal loft was definitely a plus since I had a large bridal party. It was a beautiful fully equipped loft style apartment that also made for great photos. I wouldn't change a thing about the venue other than its distance. This was a great find. I initially looked at the Cotton Warehouse in Monroe (which was also nice), but I am so grateful that Jakob told me about this place because it fit us perfectly.

The Mill at Yellow River was the perfect backdrop for our wedding. My fiance and I were nervous about choosing a venue an hour away from where many of our guests would be traveling from (Athens, GA), but once we saw the mill we knew we had to have our wedding there. It sits right on the river, which provided lots of opportunities for beautiful photographs. The outdoor patio was the perfect place for our guests to take in the beauty of the mill and the river during the cocktail hour.

The venue is gorgeous and Jakob and his staff did everything in their power to make sure our wedding day was exceptional. Jakob was attentive throughout the entire planning process. He and Brandy worked tirelessly the day of the wedding to make sure everything behind the scenes ran smoothly. They checked in with us constantly during the reception to see if there was anything they could do for us. Our guests are still talking about how beautiful the ceremony and reception was--all thanks to this amazing venue!

The Mill at Yellow River.....what a absolutely breathtaking venue! This is the venue of every brides' wedding day dream. Everyone at Beyond Details was so accommodating to me and Dan. The wedding of my dreams came true at this wonderful place.
I also used Beyond Details for my food, flowers, and design.....I could not have been happier! Jakob went over and beyond to customize my wedding for me. He put his heart and soul into making me so happy! Chef Todd were so willing to please me and my guests. I loved our mason jar salads and filet. My guests are still talking about how amazing the food was. You did a amazing job. Thank you for the Honeymoon food basket. That was so thoughtful of you. :)
I highly recommend this venue and company over any!
Thank you!

I am type A by nature so finding a venue and team of support to help me (and put up with my obsession to every detail) through eight plus months of planning I knew would be a challenge. I went to 10 plus different locations all over Atlanta and when I met Jakob and saw The Mill on Yellow River, I immediately knew my search was over. Immediately I felt like Jakob just got me. I would describe (not very well) my vision and I found him finishing my sentences and also helping me develop and refine my taste. He is brilliant and after working with him I can honestly say, dont ever question him....he knows exactly what he is doing and does it first class. I also loved that The Mill was a apart of a "one stop shop"--Jakob and his team also could handle the catering, florals and also design of your entire wedding from start to finish. They were price competitive (and trust me I looked around) for the first class quality they provided. My wedding was beautiful...when I walked in for the first time I was completely speechless and loved how every detail was perfected. So if you are looking for a venue for a large wedding (200+ guests), that has both a beautiful indoor and outdoor space, I would highly recommend the Mill. The Mill really is a blank slate, If you want to have a rustic/chic wedding or more industrial Beyond Details has the ability to transform the space exactly the way you are envisioning it.
