In September 2016, Kris and I approached
the McLean Mill Society to inquire about using the site as our wedding venue. At the time, the Mill property looked nothing like it does today. In just one year, this place has transforme d into the most beautiful, romantic place to host a wedding.
Deanna, Bill, Rachelle, and others worked very hard to meet our needs- Train ride transporta
tion of guests to mill, outdoor ceremony, indoor dinner, outdoor dancing on new floating deck, beautifull y rustic atmosphere ... this venue gave us everything we could have wished for.
We are extremely grateful for those who saw our vision last year and made it a reality. Kris and I highly recommend working with this crew and allowing them to host your wedding (or other special event) at McLean Mill! - Shaylah & Kris
