Factories-then as now-weren’t fancy places. Our restored buildings were built of wood and brick with the interior kept as open as possible for placement of mill machinery.bride gets help buttoning dress in 19th century factory turned wedding venue- Mill 11 bridal suite

When we created Mill 1 at Open Square we embraced the openness of the space and chose to expose and highlight the building’s exceptional bones by sandblasting the brick walls and longleaf pine ceilings and refinishing the amazing maple floors.

When it came to the bridal suite, we decided to make the space lighter and brighter. We simply applied a fresh coat of white paint to the tall brick walls and high ceilings and painted the floors a neutral grey. We added heat and air-conditioning, a full-length and wall mirror, simple seating options and high sturdy hooks on which to hang long wedding dresses.elegant bridal suite at Mill 1 with couch, table,chairs and rug

There’s lots of light for applying make-up or fixing up one’s hair and electric outlets for curlers and the like. During weddings, we also add a well-stocked toiletry basket in case your forgot things at home. Use of the bridal suite is included in your Mill 1 wedding rental.
