Mill 1 Testimonials

Read the testimonials from people who’ve had events at  Mill 1 at Open Square.

Mill 1 at Open Square went above and beyond to ensure that we had a perfect wedding day! The space itself is gorgeous– exposed brick, hardwood floors, huge windows. The mill was restored beautifully and makes for the perfect event space. The fact that it was a net zero energy building was especially appealing to my husband- an architect interested in sustainable building practices. I had a lot of questions and ideas, and they were always responsive and accommodating. They certainly took care of us to help make it a stress free day! Our guests continue to rave about the unique space, which just reaffirms for us what a fabulous choice it was to have our wedding at Mill 1. – Amy R.

My wedding was amazing! The venue is beautiful, had my ceremony in Mill 4 and reception in mill 1. Staff was very easy and personable to work with. You can make the space look glamorous or rustic depending on your vision. We went industrial glam and added canvas pics and different decor to make it pop and add the glam factor. – Jocelyn S.

Amazing venue for both our ceremony and reception. Could not be any happier with the services Mill 1 provided. Management was great to work with. Highly recommend Mill 1. – Kevin & Rebecca O.

Mill 1 is a beautiful and modern setting for a wedding, and the pictures online do not do justice for how beautiful it is! When I showed my now husband pictures of the venue I chose he liked it, but when I took him there before the wedding he was blown away at how amazing the building is. The staff is extremely easy to work with and so very helpful, they really know what they’re doing! Also with everything we had included the cost was very affordable compared to most other venues we looked at. Absolutely in love with Mill 1! – Jennifer D.

We absolutely LOVED every part of our special day at The Mill One!! Thank you for the amazing space and incredibly attentive staff!! – Kelli A.

Thank you to you and your team, a million times over, for putting together the most amazing wedding reception for Marty and me! Everything looked exactly as I had imagined and we got so many compliments on not only the decor but also on the incredible room. Marty and I had the best time and could not have asked for more! You guys are incredible! – Lauren O.

Thank you so much for a perfect wedding!  We have heard nothing but wonderful things about the Mill.  Everyone had such an amazing time. Tom and I especially loved every minute of it.  The room was beautiful! Thank you again for everything! – Lynanne & Tom

Thank you for all Mill 1 at Open Square did to make our event so special. We had a fantastic night and could not be happier with the way the entire affair went. – Ann

We could not have been happier with our wedding at Mill 1. The venue itself is gorgeous and exactly what we were looking for (the complete opposite of a hotel or country club ballroom). The old wooden floors, exposed brick walls, large mill windows all made for the perfect setting. We comfortably fit our 170 guests and still had a giant dance floor that stayed packed most of the night. We received so many compliments from our guests about how unique and different the venue was and how much they loved it. – Merissa & Jackie

We had lined up a few venues to check out for our ceremony and reception, and Mill 1 was the first place we visited. After seeing the space, we were hooked! We cancelled our other appointments and reserved our date. The fact that Open Square is a carbon-neutral space was a huge bonus for us, too. The space was the perfect size for our reception (about 100 guests), and the staff worked hard to make sure that everything went smoothly before and during our wedding. The bar staff were on top of their game, too. So many of our guests remarked on how wonderful the space was, and we couldn’t have been happier with our big day! – Connie C.

It was so great to be the only wedding happening that day so we did not feel as if we had to compete for her attention or worry about very strict schedules and shuffling about. Staff was at the venue all day and night making sure that everything went according to plan. A huge thanks to Mill 1 for helping us realize our wedding vision! – Ryan

Mill 1 went above and beyond to make our wedding the best day of our lives. – Stephanie

The staff were so great. They made my event go off without a hitch. They were completely amazing. It was snowing during my event so they made sure that all of the parking lots were plowed so people could arrive and depart easily. The level of service you receive at Mill One is unmatched. – Kelly

We had a small destination wedding in California and came back home to have a big party with all of our friends and family. We knew we didn’t want a typical “reception” space and we both fell in love with Mill 1! The atmosphere inside is absolutely gorgeous, with the brick walls, huge windows and wood floors. All of our guests raved about how cool and unique the place was and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. I would highly recommend having an event here!! – Nichole

Mill 1 at Open Square in Holyoke was wonderful! We received so many compliments on the venue and the ambiance. We could not have asked for a more accommodating experience. I have helped friends with their weddings and have never come across a venue with so much character and elegance. – Katie

Mill One is a perfect venue, plain and simple. Extremely versatile space that will work for any type of wedding or event. The space speaks for itself, so for our casual wedding reception, we really did almost no decorating and it was still just stunning. The staff were professional, responsive, and friendly. 10/10 – Lydia
