Amazing! From the beginning we felt welcomed. I loved that we could have a reception and ceremony in one place. I love how you make God known. The price is amazing, most places are twice as much and you can only choose from their vendor list. Our experience was perfect all around. -SRL 4/29/2022
We Had An Amazing Day We chose an Orchard Wedding because I lived locally and had been to the orchard many times. Steve was pleasant and very easy to talk out scenarios of how the ceremony/ reception could go. Grateful there was a secondary option in case of weather presented. And very accommodating incase of date change. I loved the bridal area. It was I beautiful day. -AF & BF 3/14/22
A Perfect Wedding Day Steve and Bridget at the The Country Mill are absolutely amazing. Steve was very responsive with answers to any question I had. He gave me reminders to keep me up to date. The day of, he set the ceremony site up absolutely perfect and beautiful. With their list of vendors, made the whole planning process very easy. My guests were amazed and in love with the venue. One guest said it was one of the most fun weddings they have been to and a big part of that was because of the venue. The day was absolutely perfect. I plan to visit back in the summer and fall in the following years to enjoy cider and donuts in the mill. Also, Steve printed and put my own labels on their wine for our wedding, which the wine and hard cider is absolutely delicious. Steve and Bridget when above and beyond! I highly recommend! -CM 12/6/21, Wedding Date: 8/28/21
Beautiful Orchard Wedding My wedding was during the peak of the sunflowers (August 1st). We had gorgeous photos taken in the sunflower field. There are also so many other beautiful locations to take photos at the venue, such as the apple orchard, pond, and barn. I booked a year in advance with Steve Tennes. Planning a wedding on your own can be very stressful. Steve had been so helpful and understanding the entire year of planning before the big day. I never felt uncomfortable asking him a question or advice. He even added in more decorations before our wedding day, as he explained he always is adding in more improvements for the venue.
The barn is huge, so I was not concerned about Covid getting in the way. There is a dressing room for me and the bridesmaids, two large bathrooms, and a very large kitchen with everything you need in it. For our wedding ceremony, we had it located near the pond and had all my guests ride on carts, which I thought was really cute. The drivers were very good, on time, and patient with my guests. They made sure everyone was where they needed to be. Mosquitoes were also not a problem, which was a blessing. The venue provides many techniques for mosquito repellants.
We could have the venue all the way until midnight, which was more than enough time. We started cleaning up around 9PM because everyone was so tired by then. There was also a firepit that I was planning to use, but we were much too tired unfortunately.
Thank you so much Steve and Bridget for hosting our wedding. It was the best day of my life. -AR 12/4/21, Wedding Date: 8/1/21
Our wedding at Country Mill was everything we wanted and more! The venue is BEAUTIFUL!! We wanted our wedding to feel relaxed and casual and that’s exactly what we got! We arrived the day before our wedding, on Friday, to set up around 12 PM. That was really helpful and saved the stress of trying to set up on the wedding day. Steve and his family were available all day Friday if we needed an additional table or anything else. We were also able to have a rehearsal dinner right in the barn, which was a huge stress reliever for us. The day of the wedding everything was all set up and ready to go and neither myself nor my husband had to do anything that morning. Once again, Steve and his family were readily available directing traffic and making sure everyone knew where to go. Steve assisted the elderly guests by taking them on a golf cart from the parking lot to the ceremony area. Everything on the wedding day was perfect and Steve and his family were so helpful. I would highly recommend!!! -TW 12/2/21, Wedding Date: 6/5/2021
Our Country Wedding We were so full of excitement and really wanted to make a good relationship with whom ever we were going to settle on a venue with. When we visited in the winter time it was a bit hard to picture as our wedding was due for August (the hottest month of the year) but we had high hopes and knew it would be the best day of our lives once the planning would close in and had no doubt Steve and Bridget would make sure everything we needed would be taken care of. My husband and I have always been very down to earth outdoorsy people. From a young age I knew I didn't want to get married anywhere but outside and in the country. It's where both of our roots lie and we couldn't picture a more beautiful spot to tie the knot. Our wedding experience was fantastic and went better than I could've ever dreamed. I was very surprised that we didn't have to worry about anything that was going on outside our focus the whole day. If there were problems or last minute changes they were dealt with and taken care of right away. As a bride and groom the less we had to worry about the better the experience and more focus we had on ourselves and family. The Country Mill exceeded our expectations and we have nothing to complain about. The setting, communication, personnel and day was perfect and definitely one experience we will never forget. Thank you for making us feel at home and blessed. -M & S E. 8/22/21
Giffen's Experience! Thank you for making our dream wedding so special in August! We chose an Orchard Wedding because the staff was so caring and helpful, they acted like we were family and that meant a lot to us. They wanted our day to be what we wanted and family oriented. Our experience was phenomenal. What was surprising is that they pretty much did all the setting up of the chairs and tables. And if we needed any help with anything, they were willing to be there. Thank you for taking the stress off us. We have been highly recommending this venue to get married. We cannot thank you enough. -J & M G. 8/7/21
Amazing Venue Great experience! Communication was quick and all my questions were answered. We were also able to get responses very quickly. We got a bunch of compliments especially the ceremony location at the pond. The owners were tentative and willing to help us with whatever we needed. Our experience was fantastic. -E. H-S. 7/17/21
The Perfect Wedding Steve was so friendly and flexible with our needs. Everything was accommodated for. The price was better than other places. We enjoyed the flexibility of picking our own vendors for food and music. The organization of the venue was on par. The location was beautiful. -SD 6/28/21 AMAZING VENUE!!!!!! Steve and Bridget were absolutely amazing from the very beginning! Extremely accommodating, personable and quick to answer any questions I had. We chose The Country Mill because it's absolutely breathtaking, an open air venue and had the space we needed to have a large event. They completely exceeded our expectations!! The entire thing was incredible! What pleasantly surprised us was how many people came up to us and told us what a beautiful venue it was and how much fun they had. I mean we knew it was AWESOME, but when have adults AND tons of teenagers telling you that too... you know you picked the right place!! -SF Prayer Banquet/Prom, 6/25/2021
Top Notch Venue Their attention to detail and making sure that our day went smoothly was so greatly appreciated! Top notch venue with beautiful scenery was exactly what we were looking for! -A & A 6/23/21
An Orchard Wedding at The Country Mill What can I say about Steve and the wonderful staff at the Country Mill. I think we were destined to have our wedding at the Country Mill. I initially wanted a beach wedding but nothing was intimate at all of the locations my fiance and I looked at. From the consultation, to the communication to Steve's willingness to accommodate our best man Steve was amazing. The venue was quiet, intimate and simply gorgeous. We choose the pond site ceremony and winery barn and it was everything we hoped to bring to our friends and family. Steve went above and beyond and deserves all the praise. During our ceremony Steve and his workers were quiet, efficient and so courteous. I can't rave enough about how excellent they are. Thank you Steve and staff for making our day so very special. -CK & RK 6/8/2021
A Change In Plans Like so many other "Covid Brides and Grooms" in 2020, we found ourselves having to change our wedding plans completely and going through the stress of wondering how to shift around all the money we had spent and plans we had made. We still got married in a private ceremony but wanted to celebrate in Spring of 2021 with our friends and family with a postponed reception. Our original venue had to back out of their contract and we were left scrambling to find something that was in our price range, and also fitting for physical distancing and fresh air flow while also being sheltered. The Country Mill ended up being perfect. Steve and Bridget were FABULOUS to work with. They got us in for a tour quickly and helped us get everything settled as smoothly as possible. The large barn allowed for so much space and the large garage doors going up made for the perfect amount of fresh air flow. The space is pretty, especially with the twinkle lights in the rafters that they provide. We were more than happy with how our party turned out. Also, talk about loving people - a staff member found my daughter's ring lying around (she had lost it and it's special to her) and I was texted about it. Highly recommend this venue. -AR 5/29/2021
Wedding 2020 We had a great overall experience at The Country Mill. Steve was a tremendous help getting everything set up. He kept in constant contact. Answered all of our calls and emails promptly. With everything going on, our venue was the only place we didn't have to worry about. We loved the the open space and the flexibility of having our own vendors. -ERS 3/13/2021
Best Wedding Venue Ever Our wedding was absolutely amazing! Planning a wedding during a pandemic is something we don’t wish on anyone. Steve went above and beyond to keep me in the loop, answer all my questions, and provide a wonderful experience! The venue is beautiful, the owners are great, and they made our day absolutely perfect! -KH 3/12/2021
Wedding During Pandemic It was amazing! Country Mill accommodated our needs & did so all the while following the pandemic guidelines that were in place. They were helpful and friendly through the entire process. They walked us through all of our options during the pandemic, but thankfully we kept our date! - J & A 2/13/2021
Beautiful!! Everything was so beautiful and everything that I hoped it would be. So many choices and different places to get married all while being safe! You have a choice of beautiful places to get married by, you can pick a hill surrounded by beautiful trees or a pond surrounded by water and sunflowers. We can also come back and visit any time we want and pick apples and enjoy all the things the orchard has to offer and that is so special to me. - D & J 2/11/2021
Our Guests were Amazed My husband and I got married here June of 2019. Absolutely amazing!! The owner was a joy to work with and helped us so much with organizing everything and making sure everything was set. Our wedding photos are absolutely gorgeous because of the location and our guests were amazed by Country Mill. We toured the location in Fall before the wedding and it was just as amazing in fall time. Highly recommend for your wedding or visiting for fall time activities. -L & B 10/7/2020
Amazing Steve and his staff are nothing short of amazing. The sites are beautiful, it's local and above all they're so friendly! Anything we needed they were more than happy to accommodate. It's even better being able to have BOTH the ceremony and reception in the same place. Would recommend this venue to anyone. Thank you guys for everything! -J & J 2/3/2020
Enjoyable and Stress Free To be honest, owner was the best part when it came to service. Very polite, professional, laid back, and answered every question we had even more the down the road. He made sure everything was perfect and stress free. I honestly couldn't ask for anything more. The second best part was every was set up and ready for us to decorate before we even got there which was again stress free and the pond was amazing! -K & J 9/11/2019
Our Special Day Our favorite part of an having an Orchard Wedding was the scenery for starters! We also loved the size of the venue along with the kitchen which allowed us to bring food items in to be kept cold along with the ability to use the stoves to cook food for the event! -B & F 8/9/2019
Excellent Communication Communication was excellent! Before the wedding Steve answered any and all questions I had and responded back quickly. The day before and day of Steve and all the orchard staff kept checking in, making sure we had everything we needed and made sure they were there and available. -M & R 7/30/2019
Five Stars! We loved our Orchard Wedding! We had a beautiful ceremony site, the reception hall was perfect, and they answered all my questions in a very timely manner. -J & R 7/30/2019
We recommend an Orchard Wedding! The Country Mill was absolutely perfect for our reception. The large pole barn is beautiful and accommodates so many people!! We absolutely loved the string lights in the barn, the wagon table, and entire set up of the venue. We can’t thank Steve enough; he was amazing to work it. Steve was great at communicating and making sure our day was perfect. When we came for rehearsal on Friday, everything was set up perfectly and ready to go. Thank you Steve for making sure our day was perfect and smooth! All night our guests kept saying that this was the prettiest venue they had ever seen for a wedding. We can’t recommend this venue enough!! -J & J 7/23/2019
We were so fortunate to have our big day at the Country Mill Although spring came a little too late this year and we didn’t get the apple blossoms we had hoped for, the day was perfect. Such a beautiful site for our wedding day. Steve was very helpful every step of the way and always answered any questions I had timely and clearly. I’d recommend the Country Mill to anyone. The staff helped everything to run smoothly. -K & D 5/14/19
All My Dreams Came True The Country Mill has always had a special place in my heart. It is where my family would bring us kids every year for pumpkins and cider. When I heard that they had weddings here, I had to take a tour. What the owners have done is amazing! There is a brick walk way that leads you through beautiful apple trees up to a clearing on a hill where there is a permanent white arbor that you are married under. There are flowers planted around the bottom of the arbor and it is beautifully landscaped. The area is huge and can fit everyone even if you have a large family. We booked our spot right away. (2 years in advance and be advised.. they book in advance!) My wedding day was all that I dreamed it to be. Steve (the owner) made sure of it. He made sure that there was the perfect amount of chairs set up outside to accommodate our guests as well as tables and chairs inside the reception barn. He always answered all my questions and made everything so easy. The kitchen is ready to go with more then enough counter space and a large fridge and freezer. He had gorgeous lights wrapped around the wooden posts and and up above all the tables. It just lights everything up and really dresses everything up. (and we didn't have to lift a finger!) We also purchased wine from the orchard with custom labels. Steve made sure that it was delivered on time and set out for our guests. And our guests just LOVED the sweet blueberry wine! There wasn't any left! So back to the ceremony. It was a beautiful day with blue skies and puffy white clouds. Our string trio musicians were playing "Canon in D" as I walked down the isle to the man of my dreams. We were surrounded by love, family and nature. Everything was perfect. I highly recommend the country mill as a wedding venue! This place is absolutely gorgeous and Steve and his staff are amazing! -A & J 10/18/2018
Thank You! I am so happy that we chose the Country Mill as the venue for our wedding! Your staff was great and the layout of the property is genius! Thank you so much! AC & SC 9/9/18
Our Day was Perfect Country Mill was perfect for our wedding reception and wedding pictures! We could not have asked for anything better. Steve and Bridgette are easy to work with, prompt with their responses and answering our questions throughout our whole planning process. The venue (the big barn) is beautiful even without decorations, we had many compliments on this. The indoor and outdoor space was also very beneficial for us as we had many young kids running around and dancing everywhere, but they were never in the way. The various places we were able to take wedding pictures was a huge bonus! I love the pond, white barn and ceremony site pictures we were able to get, they are even better than I envisioned we would have to help us remember this special day. We could not have asked for anything better and blessed! Our day was perfect! Thank you very much! -M & R 6/5/2018
Great Location The orchard was a great location and perfect for our wedding. The staff was very friendly and Steve worked with us to make sure we had the day we wanted. The tables were set up the way we had requested, and we were even able to decide the day of whether or not we wanted to have the staff do clean up. We received several compliments on how beautiful the location was. We were so happy with the results. I would recommend to anyone who has always wanted an outdoor wedding but would like the comfort of a back up plan. -KS 6/7/2018
Our Best Day Ever We had a wonderful wedding. Steve was super easy to work with, normally he answered our questions before we asked them. Hes very responsive and flexible. He made our best day ever possible and painless. I cant thank him enough. - A & C 7/18/17
July Wedding Despite the forecast calling for rain, it ended up being a beautiful day for an outdoor ceremony. With 200 guests, there was plenty of room at the reception in the Orchard Barn, to be comfortable. The big doors were opened on both sides of the barn for air flow, but flies really weren't a problem. There are a few big fans in the barn to help with cooling the air too, which was a big help. They let us put up yard games between the barn and orchard and overall, we had a great time. Lots of compliments! -TG 8/29/2014
Outdoor Rustic Wedding Our wedding was beautiful. The ceremony location was perfect! It was exactly how we always dreamed it would be. Steve was always willing to make time to let us see the venue and accommodated all of our needs. It is the perfect location for an outdoor rustic wedding. -D & L 8/18/2013
