5. Do we get to taste the food before we pick menus?

We do hold Client Receptions several times a year. So that the menus are the most current and appropriate for the season, clients are invited to attend a Reception based on their event date. Invitations are extended to (2) attendees. This is at no charge.

We include 4 hours for your reception and an additional 30 mins for your ceremony. You may arrive up to 1 ½ hours prior to the start of your ceremony for photos. Vendors will have additional time to access the facility for set up and tear down. Saturdays during “peak months” do have specific day and evening time slots available. Fridays and Sundays you may choose your time frame. Exceptions may apply on some holidays.

Ivy Hall will accommodate 150-400 guests inside the facility and can hold over 800 when the deck is tented.

9. Am I allowed to bring outside vendors in?

Yes! We do require that dj’s are selected from our Preferred List and we are happy to suggest vendors for your other event needs. Our Vendor List highlights people we have worked with for many years, who know our buildings and treat our clients with great care. Should you want to use someone not on our list, they must just sign a Vendor Contract (confirming they have appropriate licenses and insurance) and be approved. We do not take referral fees.

12. What is the history of Roswell Mill?

This building is a unique and cherished piece of Southern history. Located on Vickery Creek, it was built in 1838 by Roswell King. The Mill became a vital part of the South’s early cotton industry prior to the Civil War. During the Civil War, Mill workers produced Confederate officer’s uniforms that were known as “Roswell” Grey. General Sherman destroyed the Mill on his march to the sea in 1864, but it was rebuilt in 1882. It was destroyed, again, by a lightning strike. The Mill was rebuilt and continued in operation until July 1975. The final order commissioned from the Mill was ordered by First Lady Jackie Kennedy for The Lincoln Bedroom. The Mill was reopened as a special event facility in the early 1990’s.

13. What is a Courtesy Hold?

If one our venues seem like the perfect place for your event, we are happy to hold it for you while we do a Proposal and you review it. This hold gives you the right of first refusal for up to (10) days then the space is released automatically. If during this time another client wants the venue, you are given ( 2-3) days to sign a contract, then the space is offered to the other party.
