Hillary & Ethan's May Wedding at the Mill

Hillary & Ethan were another couple who trusted us in the midst of many, many changes at the Mill!  Luckily, they were both so calm about everything -- they just wanted to get married!  

These two had the coolest DIY details.  They made their own wooden centerpieces, table numbers, and a cool donut display!  They also used the altarpiece that Jasmine & Eddie gifted us, which has been used at almost every wedding since!  :)

Hillary, Ethan, and Mani,

Thank you so much for trusting us to host your wedding, even when we were talking about tearing down walls.  We're so glad we met you!!

Jasmine & Eddie's Spring Wedding at Madison at the Mill

Jasmine & Eddie are so special to us.  For months, their wedding date of May 6, 2018 was the most important date on our minds!  In the midst of our expansion, we had their wedding date scribbled on plans, drywall, and taped to the windows.  They were our deadline.  It was so important to all of us to be ready, and I'm still humbled by the faith that Eddie and Jasmine especially had in us!

It was our honor to host this wedding!!  Enjoy a few of our favorite photos from their photographer, Kim Anguiano!

Jasmine & Eddie,

Thank you SO much for trusting us to host your wedding . . . even when we were taking down walls and stripping floors!!  Your faith is such an inspiration to us, and we wish you all the best!!

Introducing the Old Firehouse Suite!

We've been teasing a secret project on Instagram, and now it's time to give you all a little sneak peek!  We're not completely finished with decorating, but we can't wait to show you how it looks so far!

Madison at the Mill is now offering luxury accommodations!!

We're so excited to introduce you all to the Old Firehouse Suite, a 2 bedroom, 2 full bath apartment just half a mile from the venue.  

We wanted to make sure that our couples have access to a beautiful place to stay before and after their wedding at Madison at the Mill.  Brides may want to stay here with their bridesmaids or couples may want to reserve the suite for their parents as an extra special thank you!  

Set inside Orange's historic firehouse, the Old Firehouse Suite includes two bedrooms, each with their own queen size bed and full bathroom.  Each shower is floor to ceiling granite with top of the line rain shower heads for ultimate relaxation.  And don't worry -- it's not a firehouse anymore, so you should enjoy a quiet night's rest!

 This is the front bedroom! We'll definitely be adding more pillows and nightstands!

 It's hard to get a photo of the size of this shower, but it's HUGE!

Every bit of the apartment was renovated and outfitted with ultimate luxury in mind, from the quietest ceiling fans to the softest sheets.  For example, Robert and I spent a LOT of time deciding on mattresses to ensure that your night's sleep will be the MOST comfortable.  We learned that he prefers a super soft mattress while I like a more firm bed, so we chose something perfectly in between!

 This is the master bedroom.  After putting the bed frame together, I realized we would need a boxspring cover!  If anyone wants to come help me wrestle a queen sized box spring into this cover, let me know!  ;)

 Fun fact: I had a mirror for this dual sink vanity, but it wasn't quite right!  We'll still searching!

The Suite also includes a full kitchen, laundry room, and living room with a queen size pull out sofa that will sleep two extra guests if need be!  The kitchen is stocked for light cooking -- we have all the flatware, plates, bowls, pans, and even muffin tins & cookie sheets that you should need!
