Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • This urban-chic treasure was beautifully transformed from a 19th-century garment factory. The majestic main event space, which extends the entire length of the venue, can easily be customized for your special day.
  • The impressive space has a grand atmosphere, thanks to an 18-foot vaulted ceiling and 14 crystal chandeliers. It also features a gleaming pine floor, rows of arched windows that overlook the Capital's cityscape and let in ample light, and brick walls rising toward the soaring ceiling.
  • Downstairs, The Courtyard at Mulino makes a truly romantic spot for your cocktail hour: Ivy climbs the surrounding brick walls and a peaceful central pool reflects the twinkling lights overhead. This area can be used in conjunction with the Mill's indoor space or on its own.
