My wedding experience at The Mill!

Wow! What a night! One of the best days in my life! I can’t stop smiling thinking back on it 

The Mill really made the night! We searched all around central Jersey to find a venue that would be right for us. The Mill was perfect with the beautiful overview of the lake (perfect for a memorable cocktail hour, hint hint) and an updated look (combing both a traditional and modern feel) that just made it an easy choice.

Where to begin . . .
Everyone that we spoke with was super friendly and willing to go the extra mile to make our ideas work. From the very beginning they knew how to handle my detail-oriented questions and my parents (especially my mom!). I never felt rushed when it came time to select the cocktail and reception menu. Which brings me to the fact that their food is just delicious! Everyone loved the lobster bisque!

The Mill has such a variety in their food choices from appetizers to dessert and has a romantic feel to it both inside and out. What more do you need from a venue? It was just a beautiful day!

As the day got closer my sales representative was awesome at answering all of my questions and finalizing all the nitty gritty details. She got what we wanted and was able to work with all of our vendors to make it happen.

On the day of, all of the transitions were smooth; from the cocktail hour through all of the meals at the reception. The drinks kept pouring!
Also, I loved that they were able to be flexible and accommodate a couple of our Polish traditions into the reception! They really made sure it was a personal experience for us!

Everything that we needed to be there was there! Everything they promised us they pulled through! The night turned out to be so much more than I had expected!

The Mill was the perfect venue! My husband and I did not want a typical wedding banquet hall, and wanted an outdoor ceremony. The grounds at the Mill with the pond and gazebo were exactly what we were looking for. It was simple but elegant - our overall theme. Our guests commented how beautiful and serene the outdoor ceremony area was. And then the reception room upstairs is just as beautiful!! The atrium room for the cocktail hour and huge windows in the reception room make everything so open and bright. The food was amazing too! Our guests loved it all! Amanda and Kelly (wedding coordinators) were exceptional! Kelly helped keep everything so organized and stress-free during the wedding day, which is what you want that day! An added perk - since the Mill is a restaurant, you can go back with your husband and/or family to have dinner to remember your special day :)

My husband and I were married on 7/17/11 and this venue was perfect! The grounds for the outdoor ceremony are kept very well, shrubs trimmed neatly, any flowers looked lively...just perfect. The pond next to the gazebo put our guests in awe, speakers were used in the gazebo so the guests could hear our ceremony and vows, and the area was decorated just as requested! Our wedding coordinator, Kelly, was amazing...she is beyond organized and kept everything perfectly in order. The food for our reception got many praises from our guests and my salmon dish was delicious! All in all, an A+ location for a perfect wedding.

My husband and I chose to have both our ceremony and reception at The Mill and could not have been happier with the way everything turned out! The main reasons for choosing The Mill was the view (both inside and out) & the food and all were outstanding! Leading up to the day of our wedding I must have been in touch with Amanda (the coordinator) 2-3 times a week. Each time, whether it was a big or small issue, she was not only professional but so helpful. At the rehearsal,we worked with Kelly & Lynn who were both great! We had a bridal party of 20 including us and they did a wonderful job of keeping everyone organized!! On the day of, everything was fantastic! All of our guests raved about the food, the staff and their overall experience. And on a personal note, I have food allergies and was so well taken care of the day of our wedding from special appetizers to my main meal. Just another personal touch that made the day even better! We couldn't have asked for a better experience for our special day!!

I got married at The Mill this past June 24th. Overall, everything was amazing... way better than I pictured and expected actually. I was pretty nervous to book the mill because I rely heavily on reviews I've read online and they were so mixed. Based on what others have said in the past, I think they may have been having a hard time finding really great employees, which probably affected earlier reviews. But I know there have been changes made and now I really think they've got it all together... I had a great experience with everyone I dealt with, mostly Amy Floss who was absolutely awesome, and then Kelly and Rita (?) the day of who were just as nice and accomodating. The ceremony area is beautiful but we had rain and I (and my guests) were soo happy with the indoor plan... those huge windows make for a gorgeous view and the transition from ceremony to cocktail hour to reception went so smoothly. Food was great and they really did a great job accommodating several of our guests' food allergies/restrictions (gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian, vegan). If I had to complain about something it's that they don't have an indoor spot for pictures in the event of rain... we literally had to take most of our group pictures on the front porch. BUT... that's probably an issue you'd run into anywhere else. Guests have said nothing but nice things, and I know no one would say anything negative to me BUT people really went out of their way to contact me afterwards to tell me how wonderful it was. One of my guests went to another wedding the next night and commented on how much better our entire night was all-around... and we spent half of what the other bride did! I can go on and on about details regarding the experiences and accomdations that were made leading up to our wedding day and of course the day of, but I'm running out of space :-) Feel free to shoot me an email with questions... I know I was dying for details and had alot of questions when I was looking to book our venue. daynabronzino@gmail.com

After searching a ton of venues with my husband we found The Mill's website and fell in love with the pictures. We set up a viewing and the pictures DO NOT give this place justice!!! We fell in love with the set up immediately both inside and out! The wedding consultant was amazing all throughout and the staff was fantastic!! Every request that we made was met with ease by the staff! We were so happy with our day and everything was flawless! I highly recommend!!

My husband and I knew the second we walked into the Mill that it was going to be "our" venue. I had grown up going to "The Old Mill Inn" with my family when I was younger, so it had meaning for me as well. We went to an Open House and booked our wedding that day. We ended up winning a prize to get a percentage off of our wedding package because we booked that day... you can't beat that, especially with our guest list of 190 people! We decided on December 11, 2010 because The Mill is decorated so beautifully during the holidays and we knew it would save us money since we were on a budget with our families. We had a gorgeous day, 56 degrees (thankfully!).

We really didn't have to do a thing besides having our local florist handle the candle & cedar garland centerpieces since there were beautifully lit wreaths, trees, and decorations throughout the venue. We decided on the Classic Wedding Package and added some upgrades, which turned out to be fantastic. We also had our cocktail hour upstairs, and they allowed us to take pictures in the smaller room downstairs with the Christmas Tree. The Mill graciously included a ham carving station since it was included in the package after we had booked (They did say "no" at first, but they later changed their mind, which I appreciated very much). We upgraded to the Mediterranean display (amazing!) and we also upgraded our cocktail hour hors d'oeuvres to the Deluxe choices and added lamb chops and shrimp platters (which everyone raved about). The Mill orders their meat from my friend's father's company, she attended my wedding.. I know for a fact that they have quality food, and that is so important to know when choosing a vendor.

We had two Maitre'D's for our wedding, and they were phenomenal, they made sure my husband and I always had our food out first and our champagne glasses were full. The food is ordered "tableside", so you don't have to go through the pain of asking everyone what they want to eat 3 months in advance. Another special touch that a lot of our guests LOVED was the fact that the servers brought drinks to the table, which kept the bar line down (can you tell our families like a good party?).

We were able to have everything we wanted while remaining under our budget because we had our wedding in December. It has been 8 months since our wedding, and our guests still come up to us saying it was the most beautiful and fun wedding they've EVER been to. We credit The Mill and our other vendors when we hear those nice comments, because they made our day go so flawlessly and beautifully. It really was the wedding of our dreams and I would recommend The Mill to anyone.

All our guests, my husband and myself had the PERFECT wedding day here! We had our ceremony on the outside patio. It was seasonally landscaped for fall with beautiful mums and the lake was a crystal clean blue that day. The swans were there during the ceremony almost as if they were trained to do so! I had an aisle runner for when I walked down the aisle. Celine, my day of coordinator/maitre'd was great in helping us set up. She asked me at the rehearsal what accessories we were bringing in (cake topper, toasting glasses, etc.).
SaraRose was helpful through the whole planning process when we were picking the food choices and other details.
Our reception in the waterview room upstairs was gorgeous! Cocktail hour was in the room adjacent to the waterview room so our reception room was able to be revealed to our guests after cocktail hour. We had a brunch buffet reception and the food was fantastic and there was plenty of it. The waterview room also has it's own bridal room (small but nice).

All our guests, my husband and myself had the PERFECT wedding day here! We had our ceremony on the outside patio. It was seasonally landscaped for fall with beautiful mums and the lake was a crystal clean blue that day. The swans were there during the ceremony almost as if they were trained to do so! I had an aisle runner for when I walked down the aisle. Celine, my day of coordinator/maitre'd was great in helping us set up. She asked me at the rehearsal what accessories we were bringing in (cake topper, toasting glasses, etc.).
SaraRose was helpful through the whole planning process when we were picking the food choices and other details.
Our reception in the waterview room upstairs was gorgeous!

Our wedding at the Mill was everything we hoped for and MORE. We were so impressed and thankful that one of the many phone calls we made when we returned from our honeymoon was to the manager of the Mill. Everyone from the manager to our wedding assistant, April, our day-of coordinator, Lynn, and every person on the wait staff, was so helpful and supportive from day 1 of booking to wedding day.

Initially, we were afraid that they wouldn't be able to handle our 250+ guests but they did it with such professionalism and class that we didn't have to worry about any of the details on our special day. April and Lynn were so organized that they went over each and every detail to make sure everything was in place. I've heard of some venues where the people talk to you once or twice after you book and hand over your money. This was not the case at all. Everyone working here wanted to make this day seamless and beautiful. And when we had requests, April, the manager, and Lynn did their best to work with us. Though they've had many, many weddings here before, they were still super flexible with us and wanted to make our wedding day a day that was about us.

Along with the people, the venue is just gorgeous. When we went venue hunting, we were really disappointed b/c almost every wedding hall in NJ was so gaudy and faux-victorian, overly lavish with fake chandeliers, stuffy rugs, and ridiculously high ceilings. We didn't want to have a costume party! We wanted an intimate, beautiful wedding. Even with 250 people, the Mill was able to do that b/c of its location. It's situated by a scenic lake that makes you feel like you're away at some lakeside resort. The rooms at the Mill are modern, sleek, and elegant, which is exactly what we wanted. The milieu of the place (even if you're just dining there) is so elegant, sophisticated, and ultra-sleek (NOT the fake, victorian, gaudy, and outlandish feel you get from other places).

And most importantly, THE FOOD IS AMAZING! If you book here, you gotta try their LAMB. and their LOBSTER BISQUE. Seriously, my family and friends were raving about the food after the wedding! And though most brides say they don't eat during their own wedding, I did NOT want to miss out. The wait staff were so sweet and made sure I got a taste of everything and I was an extremely happy and well-fed bride. hahaa. Even if you're just in town, you should try out their menu! Just amazing. Their chef is so sweet too. When we went to dine there before the wedding, we told the wait staff that we were having our wedding here, and the chef came out to personally greet us and promise that he would do his best for every dish. He kept his promise. :)

Lastly, their prices are super super good for what you get! Whenever other brides asked me about their packages, they were incredulous. If you're looking around at other venues, you'll know what I mean! It's rare to find a venue that has amazing people + gorgeous venue + awesome food for such a great package deal.

Our wonderful photographer, Maggie Harkov, took some great shots of the wedding. You can see the beauty of the Mill for yourself at http://www.maggieharkov.com/4811.

Congratulations brides-to-be! :)

My husband and I had our reception at the Mill last summer and we cannot say enough good things about our experience. When we initially began the customary newly engaged tours of the various venues in the area, we started to become discouraged as we could not find a place that we both loved. A place where we could see ourselves being introduced for the 1st time, as well as a place where our family and friends could have the time of their lives. It actually came to a point when we considered looking out of state. However, we eventually stumbled upon the Mill and within minutes of taking the tour we had no question that we found the perfect place for our reception. We are not sure if it was the reception room with the wonderful view of the old mill, the great menu or the beautiful garden outside for pictures, but it felt like the Mill had exactly what we wanted.

When it came to our actually wedding day, the Mill did not disapoint. The food was great, their was a private champagne celebration ready for us and our bridal party as soon as we arrived and our pictures in the garden turned out great. Most importantly though, with the craziness of a wedding day, the Mill made sure there was always an employee within a stone's throw to makre sure we were happy. Whether it was getting us refills of drinks, making sure we had enough to eat or helping set up the equipment for our photo mantage, we could not have asked for more. The best compliment we can give is that if we had to do it all over again, there is not doubt that we would still choose the Mill.
